|We created a space that is much bigger--one that will allow|
for large groups to gather.
I am excited to think more about this. I have always believed that space and environment were key and it has been fun to rethink the space as I move into my third year as librarian. I feel like we have set the stage to expand the things that are possible in the library and I hope that the new changes will make the space even better.
Stay tuned for more info on the library throughout the next week or two.
**On a side note, if you are interested in thinking more about elementary design, Christian Long will be speaking at the fall Literacy Connection event on October 2. On the homepage of his Be Playful site, he says, "Be Playful is a collaborative design studio empowered by the wisdom of play and focused on changing the way we learn." Gotta love the whole philosophy that is behind this kind of design. It should be a great day to continue thinking about design for elementary learners.
