Library shelving systems


Library shelving systems: combination of functionality and footprint reduction

The smell of books and turning a page in a quiet space where you can hear a pin drop is a magical feeling. However, the library of today is so much more than that! A vibrant place to gain, share and discuss knowledge and to be used for multiple purposes. Bruynzeel’s library shelves allow libraries to use their space smarter, without losing its charm by increasing the number of library shelves. Our library shelving and storage is developed with modern libraries in mind, with many design options, modern aesthetics and a high loading capacity. Our range of accessories complements any library.

More library shelves, more space for students 

With a growing number of students, universities and their libraries are always on the look-out for additional space. Thankfully, with library shelving systems you don’t need to say farewell to paperbacks to host more students. With our smart library storage solutions half the space is needed for library shelves thus creating space for additional study rooms. No need to extend your building. Sustainable, right?

Today, both public and academic libraries are increasingly becoming vibrant. They are going beyond being places to merely access knowledge to become hubs to truly explore and create. This stresses the demand for increased and improved services and hence the demand for more space.

From library to event hall
