What Should a 21st-Century School Library Look Like?

What Should a 21st-Century School Library Look Like? | Library learning spaces | Scoop.it
There’s an empty room at the REALM Charter School, which opened three years ago in an existing commercial building in Berkeley, Calif.
Anne Whisken's insight:

Yes.  Good to know that students want places to be creative and to build things, and schools should definitely provide those spaces.  But research and reflection and silent immersion in quality narrative also need experiential spaces.  They are called libraries.  By all means combine them if possible - but not at the expense of the latter.
