About a week ago, two new couches arrived. The response from students and staff has been overwhelming. It is immediate go-to place for our students who want to just read quietly or complete homework.
My book club even held our last meeting in this area.
What does phase three look like? I have many ideas- paint, new carpeting, a mural created by the art club, a charging station, and more comfy couches! The 21st century library should be a welcoming, inviting space. Thanks for all the enthusiasm that you have shared as we work to make that happen.
