Custom Furniture

The library furniture has been chosen for comfort, durability, aesthetics. The custom couch in the Teen Zone is made up of several units which can be reconfigured in the space. It’s comfortable and sturdy, and the bright upholstery is rugged and dirt-resistant. The ottomans can be moved around and used as either chairs or tables, and are also covered with the same sturdy fabrics.

The “Bob” reading chairs along the front window are covered with the same durable fabrics and were chosen for comfort and stability. The framework is reinforced and the base is weighted so that they will not tip easily. The curved arms flare to comfortably seat people of any size while still providing arm support. The electrical outlets in the wall also contain charge-only USB ports for convenience in recharging cell phones, iPods, eReaders, and other rechargeable portable electronic devices!
