Contemporary Library Bookshelf Lighting
Contrary to some predictions, libraries today are more relevant than ever before with the rapid development of new technology. Users also expect more from their libraries with a design that facilitates collaboration and learning. This was the goal of one library who aimed to contemporize their building with a variety of features, including LED lighting strips for illumination of their library stack and bookshelf ranges. These solutions are available to all types of libraries in Billings, Missoula, Great Falls, Bozeman, Butte, and throughout the state of Montana. See below for more information.
LED Book Range Lighting Strips
The library in question wanted to include a variety of modern amenities to improve the experience of their users such as technology-enabled classrooms, makerspaces, and collaborative work areas. Included in their plans was on-site access to the institution's book collection.
Part of their desire to increase usability was to make their bookstacks as modern and appealing as the rest of the library. They wanted something more than dimly-lit shelves that make it hard for users to see the titles of books but also didn't want to use harsh overhead lighting.
The library installed shelves with durable steel frames and a hollow conduit to provide space for electronic wiring for the energy-efficient LED lighting strips. The strips illuminate each shelf so users can easily read the book spines. Plugged into a standard outlet, the light power supply plugs can power up to 24 LED light strips, or 24 shelves. Up to five powder supplies can be connected together to power up to 120 lights. Click here to see more library stack and bookshelf range storage solutions.
