Library shelving systems


Library shelving systems: combination of functionality and footprint reduction

There’s something magical about being in a library. Whether it’s the calming silence, the smell of books, old and new, or simply the relaxing atmosphere in general, libraries are sanctuaries for a lot of people and serve as venues for them to unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. The modern library which we see today however, offers so much more. They allow visitors to learn and share this knowledge with others, while also making use of technology that wasn’t as prevalent decades ago. As integral as modern tech is for these libraries, you cannot overlook the importance of quality shelving. This is where Bruynzeel archive shelves and archival shelving systems enter the fold. Bruynzeel’s library shelves enable libraries to utilise their space more efficiently, while still maintaining their charm and maximising floor space.
