At one time not so long ago, literacy was defined as the ability to read and write and the school library was a place where students came to check our books to read or to find information in reference books.

Building a new library allows an opportunity to completely rethink the concept of what a library is.

Jane Schmude's curator insight, July 10, 2013 9:27 PM

A good explanation of the changing nature of the library as a place of interactive learning.

Peg Becksvoort's curator insight, July 11, 2013 1:57 PM

Just what I was trying to tell someone the other day. She said, "my students don't like to read novels, but I suppose I should take the kids to the library." To which I replied, "But they like to use the Internet to find things; wouldn't you like for them to do a better job of finding things?"

 

I like Information Coach --

Esther Casey's curator insight, June 3, 2013 4:56 AM

Libraries have the potential to significantly enhance the development of life-long learners through excellent provision of expertise, resources and spaces.  There are some great NZ examples referred to in this post.

pru's curator insight, June 7, 2013 9:06 PM

There are challenges for school libraries in balancing these spaces, particularly collection space. Once the overriding priority, have we gone too far in rationalising physical collection space and thus risked devaluing what is part of a library's unique value? Of course making virtual collections visible in our space is also important.
