This inspiring book invites librarians to rethink the library space and embrace the changing role of technology, with suggestions on how to transform how students learn in and use these spaces.

With the advent of modern technologies and the rise of participatory and active learning pedagogy, the traditional school library model is no longer as effective as it once was. Now more than ever, it is vital to cultivate and transform these spaces to create positive learning experiences for students.

Reimagining Library Spaces addresses these realities, offering the guidance you need to make smart and efficient updates to your library space that encourage the use of technology to improve student learning.

This book includes:
  • Tips and strategies for transforming your outdated library space on a small budget.
  • How-to's for addressing the challenges and opportunities brought about by the changing role of technology, including collaborative learning labs, makerspaces and ways to support BYOD.
  • Practical suggestions for finding ideas to improve your space, inventory your library and survey your community.

Amazing things can happen when school librarians are willing to take the risks and the initiative to reimagine their library spaces with their students' success in mind. In this book, you'll go on a journey to reimagine your space so you can make it the best possible library for your students.
