Newport Pagnell Library
Newport Pagnell Library, United Kingdom
Newport Pagnell Library opened to the public in December 2019 following refurbishment.
Thedesignconcept were successful in the tender process to design and install the shelving and furniture for the new space.
Following a detailed brief by LGSS, thedesignconcept ltd. designed a space with defined zones, that appeals to all ages and is visually impactful.
Colourful graphics and flexibility
Our Ratio Shelving system offers complete flexibility with all free standing shelving on castors to allow the library to be opened up for events.
Display end panels means the book stock can be updated regularly and users can find ‘best-sellers’ or ‘recommended reads’ with ease.
LGSS requested the library be ‘self-sufficient’ as the space may not always have staff members available. A self-service area allows users to borrow and return books at their leisure.
In commemoration of the moon landing which took place in 1969- the same year Newport Pagnell Library opened- the Children’s library features a colourful rocket graphic to complement the ‘reading rocket’ installed in the centre of the space.
The use of distinctive furniture and graphics clearly define the Children’s Library. Soft seating is placed at the windows for parents to relax while children play, or can be used as a quiet relaxation area for users to enjoy their latest book.
“Thank you for the fabulous design and furniture you have installed at Newport Pagnell Library. We started to put all the books back on the shelves yesterday and all the library staff who helped said how brilliant the library now looked and that it had the wow factor – in particular the rocket and wall art in the children’s library.”
