Create reading nooks/areas

Develop quiet reading areas away from the traffic and fray. Use the building’s architecture and library shelving to create a sense of enclosure. Place near windows for natural daylight or include natural daylight-effect bulbs in the area.

  1. Its nice when you find something intriguing on a shelf to be able to settle into a comfortable seat nearby to examine it a little more.

  2. I believe quite a bit can be done with just shelving and architecture, but controlling noise while maintaining sufficient visibility might also require something like glass walls and/or acoustic tiles. Sound level meters + a thermometer type display (the higher the bar, the louder it is) could provide a visible reminder of how much sound is too much (and the value of "too much" can always be altered if necessary).
