Park Forest Public Library

"LFI’s creative team helped us take our ideas through every step to implementation. They are phenomenal listeners and really understand the bigger picture of libraries and their communities. LFI provided high-end service through every stage of our project, right down to the finishing details and installation. The library board, the staff and I were very impressed with everything that LFI produced: high-end without a high price. We are continuing to work with LFI on other design projects in our Library."

Immaculate Conception Learning Resource Center

"On behalf of everyone at IC, I wanted to say thank you for all the help you and the team provide us for our new library. With the kids back in school this week, we had the official blessing and opening today. Its so nice that we aren't even calling it a library anymore. Its the new IC Learning Resource Center. The students and staff love it. Thanks again for your guidance through the process."

Lake Bluff Public Library

"We have worked with LFI for many years, and were delighted to work with them in our recent renovation. The renovation, of which the furnishings we acquired from LFI were a major part, completely transformed the library. We have broken circulation records every month since we finished work on August 1st, 2011. While they have provided us with sturdy and attractive furnishings well suited to a library environment, it is LFI's service that has always truly impressed me. Their representatives have consistently worked closely with my staff and I, often making trips to the library to discuss options and see our needs with their own eyes, going above and beyond to ensure that we get exactly what we require. This great service extends beyond delivery and installation, as well, in a sincere interest in resolving any issues that arise later. I am very happy with their furnishings, but I absolutely love that LFI takes the time to establish a long term working relationship with its customers."

Indian Trails Library District - Branch

"We wanted an attractive and functional small space with room to provide a variety of services, and that's exactly what LFI gave us. Now, visitors to our branch – adults and children – can come and stay to read for pleasure, do some work, or use our computers. We finally have a space in which our members want to spend time!"

Waukegan Public Library - Hinkston Park Branch

"When you only have a little over 700 sq ft to work with, you want mobility, practicality, and versatility. Mission accomplished with the help of LFI!"

- Richard Lee / Executive Director

Gail Borden Public Library - Rakow Branch

"We use a bookstore merchandising model with face-out displays and browser friendly categories. Using this method, patrons can browse to their favorite category, and staff can still search particular items using the Dewey label. Overall, when I see a customer browsing the stacks and finding an interesting book on display…one they perhaps would not have noticed before…I feel like that is a great experience for that customer. To me, that is what merchandising the collection does…it gives the user a successful library experience."

- Margaret Peebles / Director of Branch Services
