We here at Supple have been working hard to find new ways to make it easier for librarians to serve their patrons during this time when we’re needing to be socially distanced, and accomplish this with solutions that will continue to be amazing pieces within our environments once we’re able to be safely interacting with one another within our beautiful spaces again. Through distanced collaboration, we have been reaching out to our dealer networks for ideas and developing ideas.
Today we are celebrating one particular partnership we’ve developed with Library Interiors of Texas. Michael and Trevor joined us in great brainstorming sessions and showed some real innovative thinking and as we searched for ways to both protect us now as well as making sure that the investments our libraries and schools make now will be relevant after we beat COVID and emerge back into fresh air to reconnect with those we’ve not seen for far too long. Let us introduce you to QuickServe.
At Supple, we see each project as an opportunity to collaborate with amazing partners, new and old. Every project becomes a great melting pot of ideas brought together in creative ways which we aren’t able to fully appreciate until the job is done. Right now, we’re in the final stages of putting together the Castlewood library, a part of the Arapahoe County Libraries. Here we have had a great opportunity to work with one of our favorite architecture firms, OZ Architecture, and one of our favorite independent Interior Design partners, Ali Johnston, who always make these projects fun and who always find interesting ways to bring out the best in our work. As this project wraps up, we’re finally standing back a little and seeing the results of the collaboration come more clearly to light.

Today, many libraries recognize that their role in society is changing. Advancements in technology and science have created new community needs, such as access to 3D printers, additional office space for remote workers, and places where young learners can engage in hands on activities that will prepare them to fulfill roles in the engineering and medical fields.
By changing the way you use space in your library, you can free up room that can be used for other purposes and improve your library. You just need the right library furniture to get started.
