TimeOut Magazine selected the Battery Park Library as one the best libraries for New York City kids, writing that “Like the rest of the branch, the spacious children’s room is both ultramodern yet classic and comfortable.”
The children’s section includes long banks of computer tables as well as reading tables through. The adult reading room features library tables with power and data options.
Milder Library Shelving offers a modern look with brushed aluminum verticals and the exposed edge of the pre-finished plywood. Shelving units are available in single and double sided and can be used to create walls and enclosures within a larger space
The system is designed with durability in mind; the aluminum verticals serve to protect against dings and chips in high traffic areas.
Each unit has three fixed shelves, with the rest being adjustable. Additional options include doors, locks and inset lighting.
