Designing Space for Children and Teens in Libraries and Public Places by Sandra Feinberg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The traditional role of school libraries is no longer pertinent when reading and research can happen anytime, anywhere. Rather Feinberg and Keller maintain that the future success of high school libraries lies within our ability to create a space where teenagers perceive that they are “needed, respected and …belong” (p. 17). Instead the mandate of accessible and available learning becomes embodied in a physical and virtual space known as The Learning Commons. This book on design thinking is the perfect harmony of theoretical and practical for making positive, student-centred changes in libraries.
