Staying Current with Libraries and Media Centers

At this point, we all know that the library doesn’t necessarily serve the purpose it once did. Many of the low income households in a community do not have a computer, so they turn to their nearest library for help with resumes and interview preparaitons. Others go to a library to read the morning newspapers (believe it or not, they’re still being printed). Still others drop into the library only to see what free DVDs they can get for a week. Borrow a book from the library? Maybe. Maybe not.

Whether the patrons of a library prefer books, DVDs, computer access, or a quick read of the local paper, all of these reasons make the library a valuable asset for schools and communities. In fact, such incredibly diverse patrons may well be the reason that libraries have managed to stay afloat for so long, despite a changing world. We here at would simply like to ensure that libraries and school media centers have the tools they need for continued service to the students and community members they serve on a daily basis.

One of the most subtle pieces of school furniture in a media center is the periodical rack. Subtlety is good, especially when readers and patrons are paying more attention to the magazine covers than the racks. They simply trust that the shelf is sturdy without concerning themselves about its durability. This is why Russwood created their All Wood Periodical Shelving, an 82″ High x 37″ Deep x 12″ Wide starter set with a single face and no back panel. The rack includes five adjustable solid oak wood shelves and one solid oak wood base shelf. For the starter units, you’ll find that offers a better price for the All Wood Periodical Shelving than anyone else on the web.
