The 30 Best Places To Be If You Love Books | school library design | Scoop.it

Check out these list of best places to find books (which includes a cozy reading nook, an amazing home library, a must-visit bookstore in Paris, a former theater converted into a bookshop, a person's bathtub, and many more).

What looks, on its surface, to be a simple shift can have some powerful consequences with regards to student engagement. I believe Dr. Robinson has hit the nail on the head - especially with libraries. School libraries are the PERFECT place to realize this shift and exemplary librarians have been doing just that for a while now.
