Public Library Shelving Unit

School Library: Book Shelving Unit, Counter and Built-In Desk

Library and Book Shelving Unit Project

This public school library building needed storage for lots and lots of books! Closet Works coverd the walls with a custom shelving unit that runs up to the ceiling — intended to maximize storage on all sides of the room. This allows for more materials to be kept in the main library room rather than the stacks, available for browsing via a step ladder without having to request assistance from a librarian. The dark Libretti finish compliments the black legs on the work stations and desks. A counter area for pamphlets and open space to mount a video monitor for digital signage and announcements was included along the front wall. A built-in desk area is included along the rear wall. The rest is all bookshelves. Most of the bookshelves are the same size, but a specialized shelving unit in cetain areas was included for oversize tomes.

All panels are full bore, allowing shelves to be moved and repositioned as needed. Traditional crown and base moulding was included in the shelving unit design for an old-world traditional feeling.
