Library Environments are Changing

They are designed to facilitate openness and a better sense of community.
Hi-Density’s mobile shelving solutions enable book and archival collections to be stored within a smaller storage footprint, freeing up existing space for libraries to use for new meeting rooms, collaborative workspaces, and learning labs. Read more about mobile shelving for libraries.
Mobile Shelving Has the Power to Transform Libraries
Digital publications, portable e-readers, mobile phones and even subscription services like audible.com have reduced the need for paper books, media and journals as a whole. Most libraries now offer digital collections that users can access to download books directly to their Kindle or e-reader.
With access to reading material online and at their fingertips, library patrons are looking to libraries to provide information in new ways. Often people are searching for a quiet space to study, an open space to collaborate with fellow students or community members, or a place to take classes or learn a new skill.
The challenge most libraries face is the need to make space for these new functions and services, while still housing their physical book collection. This is where mobile shelving can truly make a difference. Mobile shelving eliminates the need for open aisles between library shelving units. All of that reclaimed aisle space can be reallocated throughout the existing library and used for classrooms, collaborative seating areas or crafting spaces.Mobile shelving can truly transform an existing library facility from a book storage space to an active community resource with plenty of opportunities for learning, making and collaboration, without the need for costly expansion or interior rennovations.
