Woodseats Library

A fabulous library that the community love

Woodseats library forms part of a new community hub, offering a contemporary and inviting space for everyone. The library caters for all demographics – this is represented well by the variation in seating on offer; from high to low, comfortable to practical. Whether reading a newspaper or accessing desktop PCs, there really is something for everyone. A ‘bring your own device’ area with charging units adds new appeal to the library. 

Latitude shelving was specified in striking finishes of graphite and contrasting orange accents, the green angled seats add shape to the shelving runs. Photography for the graphic panels was taken locally, including some of nearby Graves Park - every last detail was meticulously considered.

The children’s library has huge wow factor and features a bespoke tree which can be used at desk or sitting height. Bright colours give an ultra-modern feel and are complemented by the natural light perfectly. Our hideaway units provide excitement for children of all ages and give an opportunity to hide, with a book in hand.

Since it’s opening in August 2017, the library already has a reputation as a state of the art facility - the community hub has quickly become the city’s flagship public amenity.


"From inception to completion it was a real pleasure to work with FG Library and Learning. Andy, Josh and the team helped develop the design to create some great innovative ideas and the end result is a truly fabulous and inspiring space. As a designer I really enjoyed working with FG Library, from start to finish they were very professional and helpful at all times and I look forward to working with the whole team again."

"The old library at Woodseats was tired and run down so for the new building I was determined to have an exciting, interesting space that the community could be proud of and would want to return to again and again. FG Library and Learning took our brief and designed a space designed to be practical and fun; a place for babies to learn what a book is and granddads seeking help with email. The team were patient and flexible throughout the design process, responded positively to our ideas and made professional and creative suggestions of their own. The installation team were efficient, hard-working and took care of all the small details. The end result is a fabulous library that the community love."
