The changes which occurred to the physical layout of a bookstore since 2000 are portrayed in the given maps.

Overall, it is clear that there have been done significant alterations in the store for the introduction of a Cafe and a reading area.

In 2000, the bookstore was a square-shaped building with its entrance at the West. The service desk was there towards its extreme right, crossing the sections for travel and new books. Most area of the store was occupied by books on fiction: at the North and towards the North-east. Non-fiction books were arranged to the South, towards the East of the service desk. At the centre, there were books on cookery, hobbies and art.

The first major change as a part of re-arrangement is seen at the centre, when the area is seen cleared for reading. The area for fiction at North is seen shrunken by a quarter of its previous size. Books on art, cookery and hobbies occupied the other three portions. The area at the North-east, where fiction books were there in 2000, is seen occupied by non-fiction books now. At the place where the non-fiction books were seen, a café came to existence.
