If you're in the Minneapolis area, there is currently one on Craigslist - search "library ladder"

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Tax Refunds Provide Style Returns
Shelves. Artwork isn’t the only way to personalize your walls. Instead, consider installing affordable shelving from places like Target or Ikea and fill them with books and knickknacks for a warm, lived-in feel.
8. High level of creativity. Create a unique office space on an entire wall. This out-of-the-box exhibit puts all of your must-haves instantly on display.
Shelved. A floor-to-ceiling library wall in this office on Manhattan's Upper East Side keeps favorite titles handy and draws attention to the high ceiling.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Practice: Setting Up Your Studio
Reference library. I still have a nostalgic place in my heart for physical books. But they do take up a lot of precious real estate. I’ve found clients actually looking at my book collection and ask what I’m reading and by extension thinking about. This can say a lot about you.In terms of space for physical reference materials, I personally dedicate very little space to this. Code books, graphic standards, manufacturers’ product literature, it’s all updated at a pace I can’t keep up with. When I need it, I search online for the most accurate up-to-date information. This negates the need to maintain a dry set of standard reference books. There are certain physical catalogs that I just find easier to use than the online versions — window and door catalogs, for instance — so I maintain a rolling shelf unit with them for quick access and swap them when they become outdated.Populate your reference library with the books that inspire you. Include material on subjects other than just architecture, such as books on artists, graphic designers, filmmakers or typography; biographies; novels; and short stories — it will all speak to who you are as a whole designer.
