The Opening the Book North America team is based in Williamsport, PA, close to our partners, Brodart Company. We provide innovative library furniture to schools and libraries across the United States and Canada. Jolie Conahan heads up our sales and marketing while Megan Fink joined us from Brodart and creates our unique library designs. Directors Helen Thomas and Rachel Van Riel are regularly in Williamsport too.
The US office works closely with our teams in the UK so we are part of one integrated approach. This would not have been possible 10 years ago but with email, Skype and the internet, geography is no longer such a barrier! Jolie and Megan keep in daily touch with our staff in the UK and we continually debate library and educational trends on both sides of the Atlantic to offer the best possible products - adapted to fit the different requirements of our customers.
When it comes to designing whole library spaces, using our BookSpace and Performance shelving systems, we bring the expertise of all our library designers to work in partnership with Brodart’s network of local dealers and their clients. Together we give great customer service from concept through to design and from manufacture through to installation.
