Library

A place for exchanging ideas and information, not just finding them.

If your picture of a school library is rows of shelves filled with books, some tables and a tall circulation desk all surrounded by a deafening hush, prepare to be startled. Like all parts of a school today, the library has become a dynamic learning environment, a place where students not only explore for knowledge, but gather to share it.

Creating a vibrant center for self-directed learning, sharing knowledge and teamwork.

Concepts like social learning and learning commons are taking root in the library thanks in part to the public feel of the space, free of classroom protocols and dynamics. To facilitate this growth, we’re introducing furniture, the Chat™ Chair for instance, that helps students relax and relate what they’re learning to others.

What’s more, some libraries have come full circle from simply containing books and videos. Today, many libraries have the computer gear for creating original content, whether it’s a slide show or video. To enable this new direction in libraries, we have a great array of benching furniture in our UXL™ line and great organization and storage furniture in our Cascade™ line.

Of course, we aren’t forgetting the library’s traditional role as a resource center for printed and recorded media of all kinds. Our shelving and popular portable shelving units, Nomads are making media more inviting and accessible by displaying it more attractively.

Circulation Centers: Their height is perfect for librarians and the small patrons of elementary school libraries.

Shelving: Our modular shelving gives the designer great flexibility. Finishes, colors and edge trim can all be coordinated.

Dictionary/Reference Stand: It features a large, sloping work surface for perusing oversized reference materials.

Carrels: They promote focused study and complement Smith System library shelving, tables and desks.

Booktrucks: Built to handle books, media and manipulative materials of all sizes and shapes.

Mobile Display: Moveable library shelving that offers the storage, display and transportation for books and media.
