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.

Started in 1891, The Spokane Library located in Spokane, WA had just 300 volumes.  Due to some financial difficulties the library was experiencing in 1894, it was taken over by the city and became The Spokane City Library.  Today after many rebuilds, the current site which is the Downtown building, was completed in 1994.  Five new branches were added and completed by 1998.  BCI Modern Library Furniture was chosen for some recent shelving upgrades and will be used to hold picture books and beginner readers.
