LIBRARY staff have been left with a nightmare after a cleaner rearranged ALL the books in size order during a lockdown deep clean.
The well-meaning worker popped back the books after giving them a good wipe down but not quite in the traditional system.

Staff at Newmarket Library, Suffolk, discovered the unexpected update after the building had a deep clean.
James Powell, of Suffolk Libraries, told the BBC staff "saw the funny side" but added it would take a "bit of time" to correct.
He said: "It looks like libraries will be closed for a while so we'll have plenty of time to sort the books out", he said.
"The cleaner is lovely and does a great job in the library.
"It was an honest mistake and just one of those things so we would never want her to feel bad about it.
Krystal Vittles, head of service delivery at Suffolk Libraries, shared a picture of the books neatly lined up after the lockdown clean.
She wrote: "You think you're having a bad week? My poor colleague has just been to do her weekly check of the library building.
"The cleaner started deep cleaning the space (so far, so good) and has cleaned the shelves and put 18.5 bays of books back on in size order."
Join our George Cross campaign for NHS staff
We are urging Sun readers to sign a petition calling for our NHS staff to be awarded the George Cross.
We are backing a proposal by Lord Ashcroft to honour our health heroes with the gallantry gong given for acts of bravery that did not take place in battle.
A No10 spokesman said: “The NHS is doing a fantastic job and the nation will want to find a way to say thank you when we have defeated this virus.” SAS hero Andy McNab added: “The award of a George Cross would show an emotional appreciation.”
We are asking our readers to please sign the petition below.
She added: "A quick update: our cleaner at this library is a great lady.
"Bless her for being neat and tidy. She doesn't work in libraries as such so she was just doing her best, and to be fair, the books were neat as heck.
"I might have to buy her a bottle of wine after this."
It has now been shared more than 5,000 times as people chuckled at the enthusiastic cleaning.
In response, one person said it had "brought laughter" during lockdown.
And Mr Powell said: "I think people are just pleased to be able to share any light-hearted stories at the moment as it helps to cheer everyone up."
It comes after a confused resident gave Brits some much needed laughs on Twitter after she sent an emoji giving her council the finger instead of a thumbs up.
Brenda M Boyd was horrified when she realised her mistake after asking North Tyneside Council about the local bin-round.
She had tweeted: “Just checking – is the garden bin collection back as normal?

When the council said that it was, Brenda replied with the swearing emoji.
Assuming that she had probably hit send on the wrong button, Tyneside Council tweeted back: “Just checking Brenda… Is that the emoji you wanted to send?”
An embarrassed Brenda quickly replied that she meant to say thanks.
