Library carts for flexible storage and display
Spacesaver works with library professionals to create flexible storage solutions, including library carts, that integrate with other features of a facility’s interior design.
In this case, the director of the new Glendale Branch of the Salt Lake City Public Library System wanted shelving that could be moved out of the way to create open spaces for community events and other special activities. She and the staff also wanted the library to have an open feel that would allow them to see from one end of the building to the other.
The local Spacesaver consultant collaborated with the architect and library staff to design configurable cantilever shelving units on casters. The units are 49” tall, the same height as the library’s static shelving, and the low-profile design provides a sturdy structure. Custom end panels were sourced regionally, and they integrate perfectly with the library’s interior design.
Located in the children’s area, teen area, and media collections, the carts can be easily moved for special events. They can also be fitted with roll-out browsing boxes, small shelves for DVDs, and other interchangeable storage and display products. The library achieved significant cost savings by purchasing these products via a state contract.
