Libraries need to maintain a high level of organization and restocking the shelves is oftentimes a thankless task. Libraries rely on the Dewey Decimal System to track down materials and misplaced texts can go easily go missing. With the amount of materials being checked out and returned its important that books are returned quickly and efficiently. Additionally, not all shelves are created equally and you may require different layouts for audiovisuals materials, paperbacks, and magazines or newspapers. If space is an issue mobile racking is a great option to save space so you can access rows only when needed.
There is a lot to be considered when it comes to shelving so reach out to an expert such as your local Indoff Commercial Interiors Partner before finalizing your shelving.
