Artificial trees and storybook arch create a unique school library
School libraries are special places, where children can explore a wide range of knowledge and enter a world full of stories that fire their imagination. To create an enchanting place for fertile young minds to grow, Natureworks was commissioned to build a nature-inspired storybook area inside the library at Fraser Coast Anglican College.
To bring nature into the library, Natureworks created a reading area framed by four majestic artificial trees. A beautiful archway supported by oversize storybooks sets the scene and adds extra visual interest.
Natureworks designed, manufactured and installed the following items:
- Storybook entry statement: a colourful entry arch lined with giant story books. When entering, visitors see the traditional message “once upon a time” – then when they leave they see “they lived happily ever after”. We all love a happy ending!
- Artificial trees: four sturdy tree trunks with leafy canopy and realistic bark and branches, creating a designated area for stories and activities.
- Natureworks created designs to fit the existing space and structure
- Installing the massive trees involved fitting them over existing columns and applying over 20 metres of bark texture to disguise the seams!
- Some of Natureworks’ birds and animals are hiding in the branches

Encouraging a love of reading (and nature)
