Library Shelving


Product Overview

Aurora Library Shelving: storage solutions for the professional library.
For over sixty years Aurora has been a mainstay of librarians who want versatile, sturdy, and beautiful storage for their libraries. Aurora Library Shelving has a compact footprint, improved aesthetics with finished end panels as standard and a wide range of widths and depths. The shelving can even be made mobile ready for large collections or where saving space is a consideration. Aurora’s specially designed library uprights prevent damage to your collection and allow easy access to books at the end of the row.

Quik-Lok Library Shelving
Aurora invented and patented the Quik-Lok® system of shelving which eliminates bolts, sway braces and protruding hardware that harm priceless library collections.This patented system provides great rigidity with the flexibility to easily reconfigure sections of shelving to change or grow your system.

The Aurora Design Department can create a customized storage solution taking into consideration growth requirements, accessibility, aesthetics and budget.

Education: K-12 Library
Many of today’s school libraries are short on space and shorter on funds, causing librarians to serve an ever-expanding student population with limited resources. Libraries have morphed into school media centers, true multimedia environments assisting students with much more than just book circulation. Aurora can help to fit more media into tight spaces and tight budgets.

Higher Education Libraries
The academic library environment has special storage considerations for main campus collections, decentralized school libraries within a university, archival storage for dissertations and masters theses, or research departments.

Public Libraries
Public libraries are a community’s most valued assets, providing learning sites, gathering places, and settings for activities for all ages. Demand for services increasing? Space constricting as you add programs? Aurora can design a space-efficient system that optimizes every bit of floor and vertical space.

Corporate, Architects' and Designers' Libraries
When a company needs to store decades of tapes of meetings, broadcasts, research journals, samples, documentation, CDs, design samples, fabric swatches, bound copies of publications, and/or samples; an Aurora Library Shelving system is needed.

Legal Libraries
Legal offices require the storage of trial preparation notes, courtroom exhibits, and Federal Registers, among many other documents. An elegant front office style and back room efficiency are easily attained.

Color Options
Thirty-two beautiful colors in Gloss-Tek™, a document safe finish with no VOC’s to harm the environment.
