NYPL Takes on West Coast Library in Book-Sorting Competition

“Ready, set, sort. The New York and Brooklyn Public libraries competed Monday in a battle of the book-sorters, teaming up against a library in the suburbs of Seattle to see whose staff and high-tech sorting machine could divvy up the most books in an hour. “Every year we have a little rivalry, east coast versus west coast,” said Sal Magaddino, deputy director of logistics for BookOps, which operates a service facility in Long Island City that’s shared between the New York and Brooklyn Public Library systems.” (via DNAinfo.com New York)
