Palmers Green Library, UK

Public libraries / Completed 2015

Worthy of the flagship status it has been awarded

Glasses were raised and ribbons cut in celebration of the re-opening of Palmers Green Library in September 2015.

After a yearlong closure, the library opened its doors to a multitude of new features installed over the library’s 2 floors. The library now includes interactive tables, a gadget bar with internet access; electronic noticeboards and digital end panels as well as a children’s section, teenage area and a community room. 

People visit the library for a variety of reasons: to use the computers, read newspapers and magazines and find books of course! And is a valued facility within the community.  The library has been designed to suit users of all ages and interests and provides a warm welcome to every user. 

The children’s area makes a visual impact with stunning wall graphics that extend to the furniture.  A stage has been fitted and is surrounded with integrated bright coloured kinderboxes, allowing kids to browse through the books with ease. Continuing the digital theme, an interactive big screen has also been installed.

The library is now open 7 days a week and is certainly worthy of the flagship status it has been awarded.
