The newly refurbished ‘Langham Library’ at Wakefield Girls’ High School, an independent day school, is a brand new library space that cleverly brings together a blend of old and new features to create a modern learning resource space.
The project was designed and managed by design consultancy Innsight Design, who commissioned Demco Interiors to bring their specialist library design knowledge and expertise to the project, including space planning, supply and installation of bespoke shelving and all furnishings.
Rose Rowe, Learning Resource Manager, said: “Teachers can now show girls how to access the many resources available, especially now the books are easier to locate and attractively displayed in a more logical sequence. Many teachers are already using the library with their classes and I am encouraging more to integrate the teaching spaces into their lesson planning – using the areas as an extension to their classroom”.
The newly refurbished ‘Langham Library’ was opened by former head teacher Pat Langham, CBE and is destined for a rosy future built on a solid past with Rose Rowe having many ideas on how to use the brand new space.
