This post is a collection of interesting features from library spaces for children.
Koelbel Library, part of Arapahoe Libraries had the children's area refurbished and added some acoustic treatments (the blue and white noodle like attachments to the ceiling). I think these look sculptural, and rather lovely. They apparently work very well too in deadening sound.
Koelbel Library, have the pull out drawers (also at other Arapahoe Libraries) to help children explore books for themselves. This is really showing thought for your library clients.
The collection is organised in a way which makes sense to children - note the animal sign
This photograph shows another example of the same classification - at Southglenn
Anythink Wright Farms had trees in the children's area
and a lovely outdoor space for play and learning
The Anythink Libraries had prompts for play and thinking, like this one at Anythink Brighton
and Anythink Perl Mack (although this was for anyone to connect to)
This shows some of many lovely ideas. There will be more posts on this theme.
