Learn about Library Steps

A set of steps, usually with a handrail, used for reaching the upper shelves in one's library. Also designed for the same purpose are metamorphic library chairs, a chair which opens up to become a set of library steps. These are quite rare and keenly sought because of their dual function, when they come onto the market.
