Educational Leadership:The Resourceful School:A 21st Century ... | School Librarian As Building Leader | Scoop.it

"In 2007, when I became head librarian at George C. Marshall High School, a Fairfax County, Virginia, public school with 1,600 students, the library was frozen in the 1960s and 1970s. Nearly a decade into the 21st century, the library had barely made it past the middle of the 20th. The space was designed for a slide-rule-and-mimeograph student who searched in a card catalog, not by Internet or computer. The place needed new energy and life to entice current students to visit.

 

The school is preparing for a major renovation to be completed in 2014, but our move into a newly designed space won't come soon enough for students who are already here. My co-librarian, Judith Watson, and I needed to make short-term changes with a minimal budget. We began by considering how students use a high school library."

"Two weeks ago something a little difference took place during our book club at Van Meter. Two of my students, Collin and Paxton, sat in my office and Sebastian, another one of mine, Skyped in sick from home. But these weren't the only ones that were there to discuss Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause that day. There were also students Skyping in from Jane Lofton's library at Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach, California and Joyce Valenza's library at Springfield Township High School in Philadelphia."
