Reimagining Library Spaces

Reimagining Library Spaces

Learn how to reimagine your library space & transform student learning

When I first became a school librarian in 2010, I got my start in a middle school library that had been neglected for years.  I had no budget for furniture or supplies, but I still persevered in finding a way to update and transform the space.  Fast forward seven years and that library looked completely different.  In Reimagining Library Spaces: Transform Your Space on Any Budget, I share what I learned along the way.  In this book, you’ll get an overview of different learning space design theories and how they apply to libraries.  You’ll get practical advice and exercises to bring student and community voice into your space.  And you’ll hear the stories of four other school librarians who transformed their elementary and high school libraries.
