Library-in-Phases
Design Service

Can’t afford a school library right now? If your school is in need of a new library but you don’t have the funds to purchase the furniture and seating in one go our Library-in-Phases Design Service is the answer.

All you need to do is send us a simple plan of your school library space, complete a short questionnaire and then we will come back to you with a layout and 3D visual which shows how much each section of the library will cost to purchase. All of the items we include in your design will either be freestanding or require minimal amount of fixing so you can buy as much or as little as you like and whenever you like. Perfect for a PTA-funded school library.

What’s more delivery is free so it won’t cost you any more.
