Turn your library into the creative hub of the school

Turn your library into the creative hub of the school

Today’s library is more than just book storage. With the ever changing media available, your library needs to be more flexible and adaptable than ever before. The library plays an essential role in all schools, not only to encourage reading and informal learning, but to provide access to digital learning and promote inclusion and citizenship. An inspiring and up-to-date, child-friendly environment keeps children coming back and brings your library to life.

 

Usage:
A statement of the purpose the library is to serve is particularly important in the case of a school. Will the school library be simply that or will it double up as a classroom or also be used as an information technology centre?

Stacking flexi-tables and chairs allow you to configure the room for a classroom or group work setting but can be stacked away for an interactive story time session. Mobile shelving units also offer added flexibility if your library is a multi-use space.

 

Aesthetics:
Brighten up children’s areas with appealing, motivational posters or use Dewey posters to show youngsters how easy it is to use your library.

Create cosy seating areas and reading corners that are inviting to children and encourage reading. Capture attention with interesting furniture, colourful carpets and displays. Hanging Bag Racks and junior sized Media Spinners add interest and provide practical and affordable extra storage.

Don’t forget the everyday essentials such as good quality book supports to keep your book stock orderly and book coverings to extend the life of your collection. Simple to use shelf labelling and dividers can make your library easy to use, even for the youngest of readers.
