CHALLENGE

Nestled up against the east side of Vancouver Island, Salt Spring Island in British Colombia is the jewel of the Southern Gulf Islands. Renowned for its creativity, Salt Spring Island has a population of about 10,500 and is known as one of North America’s best small art towns. The new Salt Spring Island Public Library building, which would serve the community for decades to come in an invigorating and inviting place, needed to carefully preserve the rare, unique, and fragile books, bound paper documents, film, materials, and archives in their care.


OBJECTIVE

Effectively designed and space planned by Ladi Holovsky of Chang Holovsky Ltd (Sidney, BC), the Salt Spring Island Public Library and Archives would respond to the determined needs of its Salt Spring Island service population by providing books, periodicals, and other form of media for educational, informational, and recreational purposes. Taking into account all of the issues that could affect its use in the future, incorporating adaptability and flexibility in the design and space planning would be essential. For the archives and records storage needs, the public library wanted a working environment that would be safe, secure, healthy, comfortable, durable, aesthetically pleasing, and be accessible.


SOLUTION

To reflect the ever-changing needs and interest of the public library community, Montel proposed its customized library and archival shelving and high-density storage solution. To meet the Salt Spring Island Public Library and Archives budgets, functional and special space needs, for its collection space, Montel’s library solution would allow additional space for future growth and expansion. For the purpose of storing records and materials that require permanent protection for historic and lifetime storage, upkeep, and preservation, Montel’s unique cost-effective compact storage solution would allow the storage of archived materials to maximize efficiency and utilize building cubic space. In addition, Montel’s patented hybrid shelving storage system would offer flexibility for new materials to be stored, compartmentalization, and protection of the archived materials.
