A Second Home

The state of the József Attila County Library’s building in Tatabánya got heavily deteriorated over the 55 years. But fortunately, the refurbishment will begin shortly, so the librarians have to pack and move over 300.000 categorised units (books, magazines, papers etc.).

In the last opening hours of the library you can observe the essentials of this profession and the preparation of moving.

What’s the librarians’ opinion about refurbishment? How is it possible to move this much systematised documents?

What’s an ideal library, and how does it stand the real situation of libraries? What are the duties of a librarian in the 21st century? Does this modern world even need libraries and librarians, the keepers of knowledge?
