The digital age has played a significant role in the evolution of the school library. In many schools, the library can be a centralized hub of continuous activity where it has either transitioned into a combination library and media center or even two separate spaces that are connected. Either way, with current learning styles, gone are the days of whispers and silence in school libraries, where any noise would solicit a quick reprimand by the librarian. In fact, if noise is not heard, school must not be in session.
This transformation requires library furnishings that support collaboration and hands-on learning. Many furnishings are equipped with wheels, giving students and teachers greater flexibility with whiteboards, tables and chairs. Soft seating shapes and sets also provide the same seating flexibility but with added colors, styles and configurations. Many soft seating options even include power outlets and USB ports so laptops, tablets and phones can stay charged, encouraging groups both large and small to stay and work.
The library and media center has also become the place that manages school technology and equipment. These resources include items like charging stations, computer carts, document cameras, printer stands, laptop lockers and digital projectors. Teachers and students can sign out equipment needed for lessons and projects in one centralized place. Study carrels can also be found where students learn to use school technology, complete unfinished assignments or simply work independently.
Library and media centers are designed to blend comfort with movement and have adapted to meet the needs of every learner. Where students have the space to create, build and work, all with the technology they need.
