OPERATIONAL UPDATE (07-01-21): Please read an important update on IPI's operations.
Iowa Prison Industries’ Circulation Desks are custom designed for each individual library’s needs. Design your custom Circulation Desk by starting with a past design shown here or work with a sales representative to create a totally different style of Circulation Desk; either way, drawings, specifications and prices are provided at no charge.
Circulation Desk layouts can range from the simplest straight desk to more complex L-shaped, angular, curved or circular configurations. Whatever layout will fill your library’s space and needs, IPI’s talented CAD artists and craftsman can bring your idea to reality.
Storage & Convenience
Customize your staff’s working area of the circulation desk with file cabinets, drawers, open or closed cabinets with shelves or movable book carts. Patron ledges provide extra privacy for staff while providing a work surface for standing patrons.
Circulation Desks are produced with high-quality oak veneer with solid oak trim for lasting durability and cost-effectiveness. High-pressure laminate work surfaces hold up to daily use in the busiest libraries.
Maximize Usable Space
IPI will help you get the most usable space possible in your Circulation Desk layout. Examples are the corner shelves shown above and at left which utilize commonly wasted corner space while creating extra visibility for new additions or special collections.
Staff & Patron Convenience
Combine computer-height and standing-height work surfaces to create a circulation desk that will be comfortable for both staff and patron use.
Provide a convenient spot for patrons to return books by adding a drop slot to your circulation desk. The movable book cart gives staff easy access to the books.
For a special touch, IPI can laser engrave your community’s logo on your circulation desk or any wood piece.
