What makes a BookSpace library so special?

A library or reading space that looks enticing is the first step in encouraging children to see books and reading as fun. But at BookSpace we recognise that it’s not all about looks; a good library design needs to work at a deeper level too.

All of our libraries are created with library furniture which presents books to children in a way that makes them want to look, touch, take…and read. You might want to check out our Special Reading Features section to see how we get children talking about books and reading.

Clever Shelving Systems

BookSpace shelving has been designed to showcase books in the best way to encourage children to reach out, pick up a book and start their journey as life-long readers.

Different heights for different ages

Three heights, each carefully designed to meet the needs of children of all ages.

970mm – Great for Foundation and KS1.

1230mm – Perfect for KS2 mid-floor spaces.

1580mm – Ideal for KS2 wall configurations.

Quality manufacturing

Manufactured in the UK using materials from renewable sources.
All seating is made using high-grade foam and covered with top-quality fabric which is wipe cleanable, urine proof, and fire retardant.
Shelving is edge-banded to withstand the knocks of everyday life in a busy school.
Shelving is made from laminated 18mm MDF. Many shelving systems are made from MFC (chipboard).


We use 18mm MDF to give you a higher quality that is proven to last longer.

MFC (chipboard)

Many shelving systems use cheaper MFC which as you can see doesn’t last.

Unique reversible shelving system

We don’t offer a one-size fits-all approach. Instead we have a clever reversible shelving system that allows you to create small shelves for small format books and large shelving for larger format books. We also offer both face-out and spine-out shelving as it’s important to have some face-out display to attract pupils to the books balanced with spine-out shelving for capacity.

Your BookSpace shelving is made up of two types of shelves, Face-out shelves and Reversible spine-out shelves.
