Pierce County, Sumner Branch, WA

The Pierce County Library System is constantly adapting spaces and programs in its 19 libraries to adequately serve their 500,000 patrons. The need to update their service desks in at least 10 library branches led to a partnership with Demco and the discovery of our TechnoLink desks. Facilities Director Lorie Erickson was impressed with the height adjustability, versatile components, modern aesthetic, and quality of this modular desk. With the help of Demco design team, she used common elements of curved design, ADA patron access points, and a prominent “Help” sign on each library’s desk system to give the service points a consistent look throughout all branches.

The Sumner Branch serves a relatively small community of 10,000 compared to some of the larger communities in Pierce County, but serves as an important asset to its patrons. With a full calendar of events this library is bustling with activity year round. Sumner Branch Library has something for everyone, including simple online meeting room reservations, available to its patrons for use whenever they need a space to work or play.
