Americans are all for more technology resources in libraries, so long as they don't have to fork over space occupied by print books.

The question you have to ask does the physical space relate to the enjoyment of learning? I remember the cool chairs at our public library that Isaiah and I would sit in and enjoy weekly.
Cindy Martin's comment, January 8, 2013 11:07 PM
I loved those chairs too and used them with my children. I think it is not just how the physical space relates to enjoyment, but to traffic flow. Our school is big, the number of students per class is at maximum so the number of students in the library when they come in as a class requires that we think about how they will move through the library, what will cause problems for the little ones and how best to have students able to discover our treasures and sign them out!

DO you have a library website? If so,
how often do the students and teachers
in your school explore and utilized the
great links you provide for them?

Cindy Martin's comment, January 8, 2013 11:04 PM
I am using the site David Loertscher created for the workshop we attended. Problem is that I find the site very 'institutional' looking, not really elementary school friendly looking and I still do not like the Google Site set up as I want separate pages for specific items and I cannot seem to create what I want...It might be that the feature I want is available, I just don't know how to create it!
