I have been working on converting our many car garage into a Barnes and Noble.
I consistently wanted our own learning room, from when I was a kid.
I would ride our bike to the Barnes and Noble every weekend, just to hang out in the cool and the quiet, learning books and getting lost in the worlds they created. I wanted to recreate that magic in our home, so I took down the garage doors and put in a new wall. I added new floors, and redid the ceiling. After adding all the shelves and the books it looked love a learning room, however it didn’t believe love 1. I needed better air quality, and a superior cooling system, if I absolutely wanted to capture the believe of a public Barnes and Noble. I did some research, and l earned that the reason libraries are kept so frigid and dry is that the climate control is used for the benefit of the books, not the people learning them. Books have particular climate control conditions they need to stay in optimum condition for the longest amount of time. Humidity and books do not get along, so the air is run through dehumidifiers and made so dry to keep the books from accumulating moisture. The legitimately frigid temps you find in most libraries are also done for the lowering of humidity levels, because separate from the moisture in the air there is a little more wiggle room in terms of temperature. I decided that based on the size of our Barnes and Noble I will need many dehumidifiers and a portable air conditioner unit.
