What makes a BookSpace library so special?

At BookSpace we live and breathe primary school libraries. We take time to understand children and their reading psychology – the fears and pleasures associated with reading and the motivators that encourage children to pick up a book and read.

We have fed all of this thinking into our product design to ensure all of furniture is not only practical and functional but is also innovative and generates lots of excitement around the reading experience. Browse through these pages to discover why our shelving system is the most flexible on the market and check out our Special Reading Features to see how you can create a buzz around books and reading.

Contemporary colours

Mix and match from a palette of vibrant colours to create the perfect space for your school.

Every school is different and we carefully consider each brief to ensure we include the right mix of shelving, seating and fun elements at the same time as looking at which colours will work best. We use colour in a clever way to subtly add to the experience. We are careful not to use colour at the expense of the books. We steer clear of primary colours. Children, even those in KS1, are sophisticated consumers so the colours we use reflect that. What’s more we’re always evolving and updating our range of colours to ensure we’re always up-to-date with what our customers are looking for.

Below are our most popular colour combinations, we also offer bookcases in white, you can see examples of these in our gallery.

Design Service

Our Library-in-One-Go service is second to none; after listening to your requirements our expert designers will create a number of different layout options and inspirational 3D visuals for you to peruse. All of which is free and with no obligation.

Design Service

Our Library-in-Phases service provides you with the same quality service you’d expect from BookSpace including a free design service but instead of your library being delivered and installed in one go, you have the ability to break the overall design down into smaller more manageable stages.
