From elementary school to high school, the library is one of the fundamental learning centers at any educational institution. Increasingly, this space is more than just a place to store and loan books; it serves as the anchor for the school community.
Students use their school libraries to read, study, collaborate, complete assignments, browse the internet, and even relax during free time. To accommodate everything and better serve the needs of students, school libraries have to get creative with space.
Public school administrators are tasked with the challenge of making their learning spaces as innovative and rewarding for students as possible, while operating under tight budgetary restrictions from the school district. When space is limited, overcoming this obstacle can feel insurmountable.
How can school libraries reconfigure their spaces to meet the needs of modern student populations without breaking the bank?
