The first in a three part series about school libraries (watch out, AASL), Rendinawrites as easy narrative about how to start from a very very traditional library and transform the space step by step in a visionary way to meet the needs of tedays learners. Staring from a space almost full with immovable book shelves to weeding, weeding, weeing and opening up six different learning spaces from large to smaller including afully functioning makerspace. If you are even contemplating a shift, this is a book with lots of ideas that will get you started. As I have noted in a number of writings and articles, the result of a friendly, flexible space full of things to do and use makes a dramatic difference in who comes there and what they use it for. She is correct in that change in the physical space never ends as it adapts to the learners rather than them having to adapt to whatever space you currently have. She knows what she is talking about! Highly recommended.
