The Calgary Central Library Showcases Their Regional and Cultural Heritage

Public libraries are a hub of local information and have a unique opportunity to showcase the heritage of the community through displays or themed spaces. The Calgary Central Library wanted to showcase their regional and cultural heritage by displaying maps, documents, photos, and other collections.

To safely display these items in a way that allows the public to appreciate and utilize them, the library opted for flat file cabinets with glass tops. This allows the items to be seen and appreciated without risking damage from mishandling.

The cabinets were also mounted on casters so they could be moved in case of a special event, or if more space was needed.

The cabinets are a hit with staff and patrons. “We love that they’re on casters, providing us lots of flexibility. The glass display makes the materials inside more visible to visitors so that they know without signage what is in the drawers. They suit our purpose perfectly.”

Although the drawers can be locked, staff are leaving them open so visitors can have full access to the maps and other documents.
