Bluebonnet Library Completes Second Phase of Renovations

Posted by Colleen Egan in News

BCI was once again on the scene at The East Baton Rouge Parish Library (EBRPL). This time, BCI worked with Modern Library Furniture dealer, Arnold & Associates Interiors Inc., to renovate Bluebonnet Library, which is one of thirteen library branches in the EBRPL. The concept was to inspire teens through interactive furniture items and bright colors throughout the space.

BCI provided INFORM shelving for the project. Below are a few product images of the shelving used in the renovation:

In a previous renovation at Bluebonnet Library, BCI provided INFORM Desk Systems for the Adult Section, and INFORM Desk Systems for Children’s Area.

Renovations to the Bluebonnet library started in 2015, but thanks to an 11.1-mill property tax dedicated to the library, there are more renovations to come for the EBRPL. Several libraries in the system are slated for upgrades over the next several years. Teen rooms and meeting spaces are the main concentrations for such renovations.

Another CT School Project for BCI Modern Library Furniture

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

John Wallace Middle School, located in Newington, CT which is about 8 miles south of Hartford, is home to students in grades 5-8. The school’s principles are based on the acronym P.R.I.D.E. – Preparation, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence creating an environment for student success.

BCI Modern Library Furniture worked with Robert H. Lord Company for some library updates at the middle school.

What’s the first thing you see when you enter a library? The information desk of course! Information desks set the tone for the entire library. The John Wallace Middle School chose BCI’s INFORM Desk Systems (Variety #6) for its library. The stylish design of the BCI INFORM desk system transforms any library setting into a 21st century library. Color choices abound for this system and are designed to suit any library.

Also chosen were BCI’s Ratio-Double Faced Shelving System and Ratio Single-Faced Wall Shelving. This type of shelving offers a modern look and feel, as well as functionality for organization.

Below are some stock photos of the products used:

BCI Modern Library Furniture Looking Back on this Throwback Thursday!

Posted by Tracy Lenok in News

We are throwing it back again! Here’s a project a few years back we did with Montclair State University, located in Montclair, NJ. A new 275,000 square feet academic building was constructed by The SLAM Collaborative architectural group. BCI Modern Library Furniture was chosen to supply the furnishings for the CRC Library of the University’s new building. A customized solution was created by BCI’s team of designers that provided the quality and configuration, while keeping within their budget.

BCI’s 60/30 double-faced shelving system finished in black steel with clean, rich cherry end panels was chosen to accommodate the center’s resource materials.

Below are actual photo’s from the project —
