of renovations - the main reading room at the new york public library has reopened.

makeover - comes a new system to get books from the depths of the library - and into the hands of readers. a new high-tech trolley service has been installed... carrying books and materials up - from among eleven floors that are below ground level. it replaces a series of conveyor belts the library had been using for the last 35 years - but when one of its parts broke earlier this year - it shut down the whole system.... forcing the library to modernize how it brings the books from its darkened vaults below - to its bright halls above. "but doing it in a way that's completely seamless and hidden to the public." "understanding the historic value of the building, yet wanting to make it modern." it takes the trolley five minutes to bring a book from the temperature controlled vaults - to the newly renovated "rose room". that's three minutes faster than the old system. thanks for joining us.. fox5 news at 6 o'clock is straight ahead.
