McMurray Stern offers storage solutions for today’s library. So, whether you’re hosting a study group or getting more books in, you’ll have the space to do so.
Cantilever shelvings appealing and modern look, united with its durability, makes for a great compact book storage solution. For academic, corporate, public, and legal library purposes, cantilever shelving offers a comprehensive range of options and accessories to address the needs of your library today and plan for the future. The system accommodates an array of media formats, books, articles, newspapers, and much more.
Libraries are enduring major transitions in how they renovate their space. The days of classic libraries are vanishing and bookcases are being pushed aside. The need for computer labs, collaboration centers, media workshops, café’s, and more are becoming more prominent. Because there is less space for books, compact book storage is the new key ingredient for library layouts. High-density mobile systems allow you to compact book storage in half the space that traditional storage units would occupy.
Sometimes compact book storage needs to take place outside of the library. Though a large off-site facility would be ideal, it is not always the case. X-Tend High Bay is designed specifically for smaller square footage facilities, but allows you to capitalize on the vertical space. X-Tend High Bay shelving holds and compacts storage in an accessible, protected, and efficient way. The off-site storage can be coupled with mobile carriages to eliminate empty aisles and take up far less space.
When a library as famous and well-visited as the St. Louis Central Library (St. Louis, MO), a massive renovation with great care and consideration must go into the planning process. There were several challenges that needed to be addressed as the planning began. There was an absence of technology integration in the building, as well as a lack of communal spaces for patrons to use for study and collaboration. The library also needed to address several safety hazards caused by the outdated central stack area, which was constructed from a steel-framed, self-supporting structure. We helped provide storage solutions that restored, repurposed, and revived the library.
