Public libraries constitute all the libraries from small towns to larger cities within our area. As with corporate or school libraries, we can provide numerous solutions with our library products: metal and wood shelving, mobile shelving for archive or special collections, and numerous casework-furniture solutions.

Most public libraries use cantilever style shelving as their mainstay. Cantilever is the most flexible type of shelving, as it can accept various components to store cd’s, periodicals, newspapers, microfilm, and more. Cantilever shelving is also easily adjustable to various heights. It has shelf depths from 7 to 16 inches-single-faced. Many decorative laminate, wood, or steel end panels can be used on cantilever shelving. Low shelving is also common for countertop height units.

We also provide case style steel shelving with or without wood fascia for the posts, shelves, etc. for areas within the library. This is a more corporate looking type shelving, and common for collections requiring deeper shelves.

We provide a full line of wood shelving and casework for public libraries. Typically, this will encompass all the carrels, circulation desks, work areas, and wood bookcase required for the interior of the library. There are also high density shelving applications in public libraries, ie: special collections or archives. ISSI can, therefore, outfit an entire new library with all the various products we provide for the Public libraries.


ISSI has an extensive catalog of space efficient, cost effective storage solutions for any situation. We also provide laminate, steel, and stainless steel modular casework for any application.
