Top 5 Library Trends

According to a blog by Demco, the 5 top library trends that they have seen include the following:

  1. Light and airy open spaces. This is achieved by employing larger window spaces and lower shelving.
  2. Unfixed flexible spaces. Examples of this include mobile furniture, library shelving and service points.
  3. Power… everywhere. Due to emerging technologies, more outlets are now necessary, so having “powered ” tables and lounge furniture, and more charging stations would fulfill this need.
  4. Collaboration and study spaces. Libraries can use movable screens and partitions to help section rooms for more private spaces.
  5. Furniture trends. These include study carrels, high backed lounge seating and flip-top tables.
