School Library. Boring school libraries? Not any more

School Library. Boring school libraries? Not any more | Library inspirations | Scoop.it

A new vision for school libraries in Abu Dhabi is reported in the national newspaper of the United Arab Emirates:

 

"The 'least-visited facilities' in Abu Dhabi's government schools are being converted into Learning Resource Centres, where children will go for classes, activities and research. Each centre will be stocked with more than 3,000 English and Arabic books, magazines and newspapers.

They will be made more spacious with comfortable furniture and will include a role-playing area, reading corners, multimedia access, TV and an online catalogue.

The makeover, to be complete in three years, is part of Abu Dhabi Education Council's solution to children's diminishing interest in reading."
