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.

School Library Signage

Getting children to find the book or the subject that they’re looking for is an important part of enabling children to feel confident enough to use their school library independently.

Built-in signage

We offer a built-in signage system gives you a professionally designed way to guide your pupils. The clear acrylic holder takes a graphic insert that can be easily swapped when you feel like change.

Supplied free of charge with your BookSpace library here is the range of headers for you to choose from, alternatively if you want something different we can supply a template for you to make your own.

Feature Fillers

Highlight individual titles whilst keeping the spine-out books on either side upright with our Feature Fillers. Choose from Small Feature Fillers for paperbacks, Medium Feature Fillers for small non-fiction books or Large Feature Fillers for larger non-fiction books or picturebooks. All are supplied with free graphic inserts which provides a nice surprise of an intriguing quotation underneath the book displayed.

A-Z signage for bookshelves

Our A-Z Blocks are sturdy, smart and functional. Made of high grade acrylic, the blocks are an ideal long-term solution for signing your shelves. Choose between two sizes. Supplied with DDA-compliant graphics covering the full alphabet.

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.
