“We know that spine-out storage is convenient for parents and librarians, but it’s not ideal for kids,” said the library director. “They need to see the book covers to determine their own selections.” The new children’s area features row upon row of child-height browsing bins, allowing children to choose the books that appeal to them.
The renovations have had a huge impact in the community. Weekly attendance at children’s events regularly exceeds 200 kids, and the library has seen a 240 percent increase in new library card registrations since the new facility opened. The town of 44,000 residents now has 19,000 active cardholders.
As with all Spacesaver products, steel construction and sturdy hardware ensure durability and ease of use.
Choose Size, Colors, & Finishes
Library browsing bins are typically designed within counter-height cantilever shelving units, and the tops can be used as display, workspaces, or “landing pads” for temporarily storing patrons’ belongings while they browse.
To complement a library’s interior design, the tops and end panels can be finished in virtually any material, including wood, laminate, steel, or acrylic. The bins are available in a variety of smooth or textured colors and can be installed in new or existing Spacesaver cantilever shelving.
