School libraries should not only have diverse collections of books, but should also be diverse spaces that allow a variety of uses. Different areas can be arranged to promote learning essential skills. Learning Resources can be your thought partners in designing your space to reflect how your school can use the library for many purposes in addition to reading and research.
