Our fresh approach to library display furniture is based on our understanding of how to engage adults and children in reading. Analyzing the psychological and physical factors which tempt people to pick up books has led us to design new ways to showcase library books and increase circulation and reader engagement.

Everyone loves the elegant curve of this clever displayer. The sleek, modern line instantly catches the eye and sets off the book covers. Try it across a corner, against a wall or a pillar or place it at the end of a shelving bay – this compact footprint fits in anywhere. Use the Book Pod to create instant ‘hot spot’ displays to highlight themes and topics in different parts of your library space.

At Opening the Book North America, we are always looking for ways to encourage children to explore different reading experiences. We know that children are naturally drawn to the titles and authors that they already know and it’s not easy to encourage them to look for something different.
With summer break right around the corner, we have created a free resource - "Go Find a Book" which is designed to help children to discover all corners of the library and encourage them to try different writers and genres.

I hope you and your younger patrons have fun exploring the library and discovering some great new reads!

Here are just a few of the libraries we have designed and installed using discovery principles. You can see how the shelving works with very differently shaped buildings. We always create a sense of arrival with a good first impression from the entrance. Check out the flow through the overall space and the different zones created within it.
