Compact Library Shelving Opens New Opportunities in Beaufort
As with any library in this day and age, they are struggling to find a balance between persevering their collections and providing modern amenities. They simply don’t have the space. More and more libraries are looking at solutions to make their space work smarter so they can provide a better experience for their patrons. This was exactly the case for the library staff at Beaufort County Library near Charleston, South Carolina. When they received funding to renovate their library, they had big plans but still did not have enough space. After talking with their local Spacesaver representative, they learned that compact library shelving was exactly what they needed to get everything they wanted.
With the compact library shelving in place, new spaces were opened up for collaborative work areas, reading spaces and computer workstations. Using the custom end panels of the bookshelves, extra workspaces were created while blending form and function perfectly together. Cantilever library book shelving was used throughout the library to maximize the effective space and making it easy for patrons to find the materials they are looking for. Custom library shelving for multimedia storage makes sure any and all materials can be stored efficiently. The Beaufort County Library has had new life breathed into it and the librarians could not be happier with the space created by compact library shelving from Spacesaver.
