A Library Repurposed with Library Display Shelving

The iconic St. Louis Public Library’s Central Library building was constructed in 1912, but the historic beauty could not make up for the lack of modern amenities necessary for a library to thrive in the 21st century. The St. Louis Central Library integrated many different shelving solutions into their renovation project in order to open up space for repurposing and create a sleek, modern appearance in the historic building.

Static Spacesaver library display shelving was used throughout the public access areas of the library for easy browsing by patrons and several custom features were also integrated into the final design of the various shelving units throughout the main library. LED lighting was installed onto the Spacesaver cantilever-shelving units throughout many areas of the library, including the fine arts, science and technology and rare books rooms. Custom glass end panels were used in the areas with LED lighting integrated into the shelving, making the stacks look almost like works of art themselves (and yes, they GLOW).

High-density mobile storage used throughout the library also helped open up existing spaces for new functions like a teen room, study areas, lounge seating, a café, a book club meeting room, and a studio for movie, music and video game access.
