School and Children’s Libraries to Inspire The Next Generation
Our library spaces for younger children are all about ‘learning to learn’ and make that a fun and exciting process. Lively, creative library spaces inspire and motivate.
With every school library design, we start by listening and taking on board the views of all stakeholders which means our design, furnishing and project plan stays relevant to everyone’s objectives. We can also support your school to create and present ideas, concepts and costings for funding applications. We don’t believe in designing from a distance so you can always be sure that someone will come to see you as we realise the importance of face to face reassurance in what is probably a once in a lifetime project.
Technology and media are a fundamental part of learning and the library and we now design and equip libraries with maker spaces, tinker spaces, radio stations, green screen areas, and reading bars alongside traditional spaces. We choose furnishings to excite and motivate and colour to zone and ‘mood’ different areas. Whatever type of space we make sure that it’s
comfortable, welcoming and safe to meet the needs of all ages, abilities and different ways of learning.
More school libraries are now being integrated into school developmental plans so library spaces are now used for a wider range of services including class lessons, research, social reading and opportunities such as book clubs and author visits. Our priority is to design flexible spaces that give you the best value from your space.
Of course, excellent book stock is key to reader development and literacy levels and we have our own shelving ranges that have been especially designed and developed for the school library. Coloured and graphic end panels, display shelving, integrated seating and technology make shelving a key feature of the library. Our space planning expertise includes managing and accommodating book stock, sequencing, sightlines, staff space, private and quiet space, storage, plus important environmental and practical challenges are all taken into consideration. We can also design and install a bespoke library that will thrill and inspire.
It has been inspirational working with everyone at Demco Interiors. Their vision and creativity has made a significant impact on our learning environment and the ethos of the school
