Resource Centres - Action centres full of loud learning with is paces for quietness and others for noisy endeavours.

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, April 29, 2:09 AM

"Today’s school librarians employ a variety of tools beyond books to educate kids. They use technology to engage students living in a tech-heavy world. They collaborate with teachers to support curriculum. They create “maker” spaces where students can work on arts and crafts projects. They maintain a flexible schedule, so kids can drop in when they wish. And they create a welcoming atmosphere that kids crave."

 
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 10:43 AM

School libraries and the relationships, human and otherwise, are important in schools.
