I should add on the what I've learned post something about testing in different browsers, OS, etc., but I did that! I'm not sure why the Picasa slideshow isn't working for some people, but here are the before and after pictures for my library, if you don't mind the loading time.
|The large library space was used for students taking PSEO classes, and not much more|
|The books were kept in a room off the large library space|
|Not the most technical of a design project, but it seemed to work (and much better when I started using a tape measure rather than a ruler!!)|
|Next the books had to be moved - a great time for weeding|
|Our popular "comfy seating"|
|Gutter shelving - thanks Kathy for the idea!|
|Students enjoy the space to work on their schoolwork|
|We have lots of students take college courses while in high school, and the library is their classroom|
|Football players use the space - and check out books, too!|
I am really blessed with a great administration who understand and support my vision for the library as the learning commons of the school.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - this is the best job in the world!
