What Can Libraries Do with Old Card Catalog Boxes?

When libraries made the shift to digital records, many librarians were stuck with beautiful old card catalog boxes and shelves. One high school library converted the boxes into writing supply storage.

Here’s more from Reddit user Wcubed3: “I am a student volunteer in my high school’s Library Media Center. We often lend out supplies to students working on projects during their study hall or lunches, and were tired of being interrupted every five minutes for whiteout or a glue stick, so we created a self-serve station out of our old card catalog that was doing nothing besides being another horizontal surface to lose paper on.”

What did your library do with the old card catalog boxes?
