It’s no secret that the face of libraries is rapidly changing in the digital age. Rather than worrying about what these changing trends mean for your facility, by embracing these innovative modernisation opportunities you can potentially create an improved library experience through upgraded furniture and other furnishings that will make your visitors want to return again and again. Read on to discover what QUANTUM Libraries, one of Australia’s leading library furniture manufacturers, can offer library managers and designers in this dynamic and evolving space.
As libraries adapt to changing times, it is essential to understand the current trends and be ready to implement changes as needed. With the library of the future being centred on community involvement and spaces geared toward a variety of age groups and other types of visitors, many library managers, designers, and architects are looking for ways to transform the image of the library to fit these and other factors.
Whether you are designing or running a public or school library, having the right library furnishings for your space is essential. After all, who is going to want to spend time at your facility if your lounge contains old or poorly-designed furniture, or if the shelving layout makes finding their desired reading materials a chore? Instead, it is vital that when planning any library space that you consider the changing needs and expectations that visitors may have.
Having library lounge furniture that is ergonomically designed and gives visitors the same level of comfort they would expect from a home reading nook is one way to ensure satisfaction. Another way is to incorporate digital tech into your library furniture design, such as including USB charging stations for laptops or tablets at seating areas. These are just a few design considerations to keep in mind when upgrading your library.
QUANTUM Libraries creates library furniture made for Australia and evolving library needs. Whether it’s designing curved shelving that transforms a public library lounge into an appealing reading space or science lab fit outs designed to inspire young minds in school, we create innovative furniture solutions that are tailored for each library’s specific setting and desired appearance. Our shelving units are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours, and are fully customisable to work with virtually any space.
However, we do more than merely manufacture equipment and innovative library systems. As nation-leading library furniture suppliers, we have worked with several facilities across the country to redesign library spaces and modernise them for the 21st century. Because libraries today are less about what they have than what they do, we work to create functional spaces that help serve a variety of purposes. Through a variety of forward-thinking design projects, we have improved inefficient layouts and made inviting library spaces that visitors look forward to returning to each time. Have a particular theme in mind? Allow our friendly and multi-skilled team to help you design the layout and select all the right pieces of furniture and other furnishings to complete your vision.
