    On a beautiful sunny day last week, the Turning Over a New Leafproject team decided to take a day off from the office to visit a spectacular chained library in the small town of Zutphen (located in the eastern part of the Netherlands).Built in 1564 as part of the church of St Walburga, it is one of only five chained libraries in the world that survive intactthat is, complete with the original books, chains, rods, and furniture.
