Flexible Library Carts Provide Open Storage
With new technologies constantly being created and innovated, the function of libraries has changed and grown. Not only a place for quiet study, they are now resource hubs and event centers that provide vital functions to communities. Because of this, libraries need storage that is flexible enough to accommodate their constantly changing needs. Library carts on wheels create open, multipurpose spaces that allow libraries to easily host community events and other special activities while still providing convenient and efficient traditional book storage.
Movable & Configurable Library Storage
This solution was made to order specifically for a library who wanted to create open, multipurpose spaces without having to sacrifice storage space. The library carts on wheels easily roll out of the way to make room for open spaces for special activities that require the library's floor area. The staff also wanted an open configuration so they could see from one end of the building to the other. Additionally, the library carts would have to be able to integrate with their pre-existing static shelving.
The library carts are basically configurable cantilever shelving units on casters, making them perfect for flexible and movable book storage without sacrificing functionality. The units are 49" tall, the same height as the library's static shelving, so it integrates well with the existing storage. The low-profile design provides a sturdy structure, and custom end panels were regionally sourced to integrate with the library's interior design. A wide variety of sizes are available depending on your individual needs.
The carts can easily be reconfigured to accept roll-out browsing boxes, small shelves for items like DVDs and media, and other interchangeable storage and display products. The library was also able to achieve significant cost savings by purchasing the library carts through a state contract.
