Public Library’s Amazing Parent-Friendly Work Stations Go Viral

Read next


We don’t like to exaggerate, but we’re pretty sure that the Henrico County Public Library should receive the Nobel Peace Prize for it’s genius caregiver-child workstation, which includes a baby-proof safe space (aka crib) next to an adult workspace (computer access, included).

According to research conducted by the Gates Foundation, people use their community library’s computers for employment, health and education. And if you’ve ever wrestled a toddler who’s set his sights on your computer’s keyboard, you know how hard it can be to secure any time in front of your computer can be.

The desk is made by TMC Furniture, who should also win an award. Or at the very least, we hope they consider making similar furniture available to universities, board rooms, court rooms, and—let’s be honest—restaurants, nail salons and home offices.
