Opening the Book Team

The Opening the Book team is based in our beautiful new office in Yorkshire, though we work across the UK and internationally. We provide library designs, full installation services, library consultancy and training for library staff. As the founders of the reader development movement, we also specialise in creating websites for readers.

The Opening the Book Furniture team has an office in the historic Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, with a large warehouse nearby, which supports delivery of display furniture to all kinds of libraries. The design, sales and delivery teams are often out on the road visiting primary schools to install our innovative BookSpace range.
