Going back again this Thursday…

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

This Thursday we are going back to a project we did at the Darien High School Media Center in Darien, CT. In conjunction with the architecture firm Herbert S. Newman & Partners, P.C. http://www.hsnparch.com/, this project was a success.

The school is home to some 1300 students and is 325,000 square feet. Shelving was a integral piece to this project as the media center had a collection of over 40,000 volumes and AV materials. We chose a highly flexible shelving system with interchangeable shelving parts. Additional shelving was provided in the reading room as well as study carrels with task lighting for students.

Going Back on Throwback Thursday with BCI Modern Library Furniture

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

This Throwback Thursday we are showcasing an amazing public library furniture project from a few years back. The Fairfield Public Library, located in Fairfield, CT has had many additions to the original 43,000 square foot library since its construction in 1903. Unfortunately, these additions produced a very irregular flow in the building. With an increasing number of patrons, upgrades to the interior and technology framework were needed.

By combining new custom end panels to some of the existing shelving in the library, the cost was kept well within the budget. A rich selection of both custom and standard furnishings from BCI Modern Library Furniture were selected and created that modernistic look and usability.

Project: Fairfield Public Library – Fairfield, CT

Architect: Herbert S. Newman & Partners, P.C. http://www.hsnparch.com/

Beautiful Libraries are Getting Noticed

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

“There’s so much more to a book than just reading.” – Maurice Sendak

We are all aware that the libraries of today are well beyond books, they serve the community in many other ways. What use to be known as a quiet environment, is now a gathering place. There are now ‘teen spaces’ in libraries as well as meeting rooms for community use. The use of ultra modern designs are widely being incorporated into library buildings making them a unique focal point.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services released a report focusing on the uptick of visitors to libraries when money is spent on building and renovations. As a matter of fact, the report also showed that when money wasn’t being invested, visitation dropped.

Wired, a monthly magazine which is published in both print and online, recently did a feature on “Settle Into 10 of the Most Beautiful Libraries on Earth”. Wired spotlights on how emerging technologies are affecting our economy, politics and culture. This article featured two libraries Dokk1 in Aarhus, Denmark and Stormen Public Library in Bodø, Norway which both included BCI Modern Library Furniture.

WI Technical College Library Gets a Modern Make-Over Using BCI

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

The Waukesha County Technical College located in Pewaukee, WI, is a public college offering two year degrees as well as certificate programs. Recently, the college has completed a renovation project which focused on satisfying the wants and needs of the students by bringing the library into the 21st century. New modern library furniture was used to add to the overall update. The renovation gives the ability for the students to plug in and utilize the tech-integrated features such as creating powerpoint presentations.

BCI Modern Library Furniture was selected to provide Unifach, a magazine display shelving unit. BCI worked directly with Waukesha County Technical College to ensure the product fit into the complete project.

The Unifach can house both current and past issues of magazines and newspapers. Its sleek modern design lends itself to that 21st century feel. The Unifach comes in a multitude of colors and wood tones to fit into any new library setting.

Below is a stock photo of the Unifach
