10 things school libraries can learn from the Apple Store!

10 things school libraries can learn from the Apple Store! | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Much has been written about the structures, the founders and the personalities that have moulded the image of the amazingly successful business – Apple. Not only have we, the consumer, been able to establish new day-to-day routines by using the numerous Apple products on the market, but, aware of it or not, our lives have been deeply impacted and altered.

 

The author of this post wondered how school libraries would be if we were to adopt these features, internalizing them into our everyday operations, making them an integral part of our service delivery. How would our patrons – both staff and students – benefit if we were to tweak our services to fit the Apple model.

Libraries have acted as community cornerstones for millennia, and every April marks School Library Month, celebrating how they promote education and awareness in an open, nurturing space. What makes them such lasting institutions, though, isn’t the mere act of preserving books and promoting knowledge. Rather, it’s the almost uncanny ability to consistently adapt to the changing demands of the local populace and emerging technology alike.
