It’s amazing the old or past things one finds still being used today in La Antigua Guatemala. I found this library catalog at the Fundación Cultural Duane Carter Library, simply known as La Biblioteca, located on the second floor of banco G&T at Portal de las Panaderas, on the west side of Parque Central. So many good memories came to me as I pulled the drawers to check out the fichas (index cards) of this library catalog. I knew right there and then that I need to take a picture of it for me, for my memory bank and to share with you. Things do change and disappear all the time in this city that seems to be protected against change and the effects of time passing inside a time capsule; so many things found in the nearly 6-year old AntiguaDailyPhoto blogumentary archives no longer exist today.
Are index card library catalogs still being used where you live?
