The used key is always bright.

When you’ve been in the same place for a few years, you start to build odd collections - for example, after six years at the same desk I’ve assembled an assortment of seven different kinds of tape, three types of glue, and a bewildering array of library stickers (these things make me very happy).

This library has been in the same place for about 118 years, so it has some pretty impressive odd collections. Last time around I showed you some stamps; this time let’s contemplate some keys.
