Learning commons are being created at libraries around the world. Our school embarked on this journey only to discover it affected so much more than one room. By having the library become the hub of our school, we changed student attitudes around reading, doubled our annual circulation, and altered our school climate. How did we begin this process? What did we learn? Where are we headed now? Hear from both the principal and teacher librarian about how our partnership benefited the school and student learning.
