We have books in our library, but we want them to be read! By visually providing revolving stands and book bins, the students will be able to see the covers displayed, and hopefully become more purposeful in what they choose. Shelves filled with books are awesome, but when you can see the covers, eyes and hands are more drawn into the possibilities the book has to offer. Reading should be relaxing and joyful! We want our students to know what that experience can feel like so that they may carry it over into their home lives. What better way to have a positive experience than to offer colorful differentiated seating options around our library where they are surrounded by inviting literature! Traditional tables and chairs are our only option at this point. Colorful vinyl seat cushions and chairs dispersed throughout the library will not only be durable and easily cleaned, they will also provide a space for all of the students who visit the library to get comfy and hopefully become more engaged in the adventure their book has to offer! One of the most positive learning experiences we can offer at school is a connection to a book that will be remembered a lifetime! A welcoming kid friendly environment with literature right at students' fingertips that is easily accessible, and a dedicated space to enjoy the experience is a great way to accomplish this goal!
