Future Ready Library Spaces: A Team Approach to Designing
Foote, Carolyn
Knowledge Quest, v47 n3 p8-13 Jan-Feb 2019
What better way to drive home your vision of future ready libraries than to redesign your library spaces? But across a district, too often, school librarians are tackling this task on their own. Creating a district-wide plan for modernizing school libraries helps a district approach the problem strategically. The Eanes (TX) Independent School District, a small suburban district near Austin, spent a year purposefully analyzing its libraries in preparation for building better spaces for the future. They want their school library spaces to be future ready--flexible, mobile, creative, technology friendly, and instructionally active. The lessons learned in undertaking this project can be applied across an entire district or used by a team in one library to assess and improve their space.
