What's the best way to organize library books? Choose from single or double-faced library shelving in a variety of heights and styles to keep books organized. Combining wall-mounted and freestanding bookcases lets you make the most of your floor space, while our colorful Educational Edge library shelving adds a dash of cheer.
Should I get single- or double-faced library shelving?
No matter how large or small your library is, you'll find library shelving to suit your needs at Hertz Furniture. Most libraries will probably benefit from a combination of single- and double-faced shelving. Single faced shelving goes against walls, while freestanding units enable you to create additional aisles or rows in the middle of the room. Lower double-faced units also work well as room dividers or childrens' bookcases.
What is the most affordable way to get library bookshelves?
Double-faced shelves might be a bit pricey for institutions on a tight budget. However, there is a solution which creates a similar configuration. You can get significant savings from fastening single-faced bookcases back to back instead of purchasing double-faced units. This arrangement offers the same configuration as double-faced bookshelves with the added benefit of being able to separate the shelves if you decide that you want single-faced units in the future.
How can I make bookcases look built in?
Starter and adder units create a custom built-in look without the extra expense of a personalized design. Modular bookcases save space and money, enabling you to fit more shelves in the room that you have. You can order the perfect number of shelves for your study space for wall-to-wall books. An additional benefit of modular bookshelves is that you can always add more later. You can start off with one arrangement and simply attach more adder units as the book collection expands or your reconfigure the space.
Are steel or wooden bookcases better?
Because books are very heavy, it is important to purchase bookshelves designed specifically for holding them. Hertz Furniture offers tough library shelving in both steel and solid wood. Datum library shelves are constructed from 22-gauge steel that provides the toughness you need to support literature. Steel bookcases come in a wide selection of colors including vibrant and more muted tones.
Solid wood shelving has a classic stately appeal that is reminiscent of elegant and highly-prized book collections. Russwood library shelving is constructed from solid oak and real oak veneers. It has an extremely high book capacity. You can choose from a selection of appealing wood hues to coordinate with your other library furniture.
Should I get special library shelving for the children's section?
While most school library shelves are open, there are some instances in which fixed dividers are advantageous. In early-childhood libraries, fixed dividers help keep thin books in an upright position, and make it easier for little ones to remove and replace books. Dividers can also be helpful whenever a shelf is less than full and you don't want books to tip over, or when you want to divide books into small, clear sections.
For a brighter, inviting reading space, look no further than Educational Edge library shelving. These strong and sturdy bookcases feature brightly-accented edges in a selection of hues. They are perfect for a children's section or even a contemporary adult library. They can also be coordinated with classroom colors for those who keep many books in the learning space.
