Setting up Bee Hive

I have to say when I was planning things out for the Bee Hive, I didn’t truly consider what it would be like to unbox, shelve, and alphabetize 5500 books. It was like nothing I’d ever done before. And though there were moments I didn’t think I’d ever see the last box – it somehow got done. Of course it was a group effort. I had amazing people swoop in to secure bookshelves and hang slatwall; unpack endless young adult novels; and make sure every last detail was designed properly. If this store continues to be blessed with as much love and support it has had in the preparatory stages, then we have a pretty lucky little book cottage.
