The library can no longer be a place of shelves. The virtual shelves are so exciting. Last night my son wanted to buy a book at 10:20pm....he "needed it now".

The question you have to ask does the physical space relate to the enjoyment of learning? I remember the cool chairs at our public library that Isaiah and I would sit in and enjoy weekly.
Cindy Martin's comment, January 8, 2013 8:07 PM
I loved those chairs too and used them with my children. I think it is not just how the physical space relates to enjoyment, but to traffic flow. Our school is big, the number of students per class is at maximum so the number of students in the library when they come in as a class requires that we think about how they will move through the library, what will cause problems for the little ones and how best to have students able to discover our treasures and sign them out!
