Enhancing the library environment

During the summer of 2012, the library collection was weeded, the reference section was streamlined and moved to the back of the library, and the graphic novel/manga section was moved to the middle of the library.

Phase Two began a few weeks ago. Tables and chairs were removed in order to make an area where students can congregate, work on group projects, and take part in the new makerspace area.  Phase three will be the addition of posters, student art work, and a few other decorative touches to make it a more inviting area.

An interesting note is that phases two and three included the input of students and staff members. I also applied much of the information I learned about creating an inviting learning environment from my coursework.
