School libraries are multipurpose spaces that are a center of student life, incorporating socialization, filming, language learning, events, professional development, group collaboration, community usage, literacy, technology, and more.  In this workshop, we will discuss things to consider when designing and redesigning this multi-faceted space, and also look at pitfalls we have discovered on our own design and renovation journey.

As educators, librarians, and designers, it is of utmost importance to create learning environments that are inspiring and purposeful.
