Marlborough School, which was founded in 1889 in Los Angeles, is an independent college preparatory day school for young women. When the author arrived in Marlborough School in 2005, she found that the school was an exciting place to learn but the library was not. However, head of school Barbara Wagner described her vision of the school's future library as a Starbucks, an inspiring image that resonated with the school's intellectual culture and appealed to the author immediately. This article describes how the author and her colleagues planned for the renovation of their school library. Prior to finalizing their plans, she and her colleagues compiled the suggestions made by their students and their faculty. Their responses and wishes, rather than the advice of interior designers, architects, and landscape experts, were implemented without a dime, into SALON@marlborough. (SALON stands for Sense-Making Approach to Learning through Open Access Networking.) (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
