On completion of a transforming renovation, The Public Library for Union County has opened its doors, revealing a new and revitalised space.
The renovation involved a building expansion, adding 1,100 square feet of library space for the community to enjoy, including a new children’s library with a wing dedicated to children’s programming. Throughout the library, new seating, tables and state-of-the-art customer service desks now facilitate work and collaboration.
Paul White, Instinct Furniture’s Director of Design, worked with James Keller, AIA – JR KELLER LLC / Creative Partnerships — a leader in planning and design for libraries; in conjunction with Roberta Greene, Director Public Library for Union County, on the supply of the new customer service desks.
Designed specifically for libraries, GLO 1600 and GLO 2000 Single Oval were chosen for their dynamic nature and ergonomic features, like touch-button electronic height adjustability and organically curved worktops.
GLO easily adapts as a help desk or issues point, and can be deployed separately or grouped together, with support modules like our Stand Alone Storage Module, or our Cash / EFTPOS Module, to form inviting and dynamic circulation areas.
GLO 2000 Single Oval features a generous worktop with a cantilevered meeting oval, while GLO 1600 supports a smaller worktop, with the same interactive meeting end. Both provide a place to be welcomed and informed, supported by the addition of double monitors on the desktop, with articulated monitor arms for the sharing of information.
GLO Desks are highly versatile options for customer service and come equipped with robust brake castors, allowing ease of positioning anywhere within the library; helping to facilitate social distancing.
Roberta Greene says, “We are delighted to open our doors and provide a safe space for all ages in our community to learn and connect with others. The Instinct Furniture product line was the perfect match for our reimagined space. The flexibility of the units to accommodate patron and staff needs is very much appreciated on both sides of the desks!”.
