Library as learning commons

What do you want your library to look like?

Credit: Peter Mauss/Esto
Our world is changing. Our libraries should reflect that change. We need to accommodate for small and large groups, student and staff presentations, teaching and learning, and comfort in a flexible space. The library should be technology infused with digital media areas and room for socializing and meetings. Resources should reflect inquiry based learning. Tell us what you would like your school library to look like. We are up for big changes.
