The cited benefits of school libraries are numerous, such as increased student literacy levels, greater self confidence and the development of life long learning skills. Careful design can ensure that libraries provide an inspiring counterpoint to the classroom. Here, paper generally takes precedence over digital media and so management of both the size and weight of the material is key. Adjustable shelving is essential when the format can vary enormously. Flexibility of layout can be achieved with a combination of both fixed and fully mobile units. Design is fundamental to our approach. Good design can transform everyday lives, improve health and work performance and save money.
