Learning Commons

A library is not just a place to house books.  We all know that.  But, what is the role of the library in the school climate?  Since I became a librarian I have heard the term "Learning Commons."  I kind of like that term.  The library is a place for students to come learn new things together.  It is a common space for students of all ages to congregate together for the sake of learning.  This year our library will change.  There is a space for students to sit comfortably.  There is a space for them to work at tables.  And, there is a space for them to create "stuff."  I'm still working on what my "makerspace" will look like and be like.  It is definitely a work in progress and that's okay.
