The leader since 1876

See why we're still the first name in library furnishings


Today's library is a fully adaptive community space, constantly redefining itself to meet the public's need. With the largest standard color selection in the industry, a vast portfolio of furnishings, and the ability to fully customize to your environment, LBS brings your vision to life.


When Melvil Dewey founded this company, the same year he invented the Dewey Decimal system, he thought the library was the single most important building in any community. We still think so, and our staff will work with you every step of the way to insure your library's interior reflects this simple philosophy.


With the largest installed base of library furnishings in the world, our SafeStak® line of shelving exceeds the highest standards for durability and earthquake tolerance. Made in a state-of-the-art U.S. facility by the same demanding standards we've always been known by. You won't find better built furnishings anywhere for any price.
