Storage Unit Libraries (1 Viewer)


Sep 9, 2020
Ok, so I'm not sure how to start, but here goes. For several months, I have been planning on turning my storage unit into a personal library, as I have very specific tastes in literature, and finding them on the road is challenging at best. I pay 85 per month, and as it stands, it has a couple bikes in it, and 81 boxes of books (uhaul book boxes) on top of two pallets. I want to turn it into a usable library to come back to whenever I can. I'm also in the middle of writing a book on the subject, so I want to know if anyone has any similar experiences, or what they think of my project. Sadly, zero other units are avaliable in my town (despite there being close to 50 other storage companies), so I am stuck with non Climate controlled unit for now (10x10). I want to put bookcases up, yet am afraid insects might infest my collection. Any tips?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
