From standing-height internet touch-down points (some including book shelves) to individual study carrels and cable-managed desks (you can add accessible power sockets for students to plug in their own devices), getting the desking right in Libraries is now one of the most important aspects to consider.
There’s nothing like sitting back with a good book, so the form and style seating takes in a library helps promote positive attitudes to reading.
Study tables in a variety of shapes and sizes can add a sense of style and drama to library spaces whilst adding colour can act as a means of signposting throughout the space.
Whilst some colleges have brought their ICT department into the library enabling staff within that space to offer help in the widest possible context, in others the requirement is more traditional with staff desks serving more so as a book-return counter.
Whichever, the sense of style and quality in our reception desks are appropriate whether you are ambulant or wheelchair-bound, makes them a positive contribution to the library space.
Shelves & Storage
Shelving and means to display other information such as prospectuses, leaflets and periodicals is one of the most important things to get right in a library.
Adding graphics to end panels enables a degree of personalisation and in a way that can be changed as fashions alter, or the requirement changes.
