Library Make-Over

Help me give my students tables and stools for an updated area in the library to attract more students and to provide them with a collegiate feel with this furniture.

My Students

We have some of the most talented, artistic, athletic, tech-gifted, giving, purpose driven students in our area and I get the chance to interact with all of them! They visit me in the school's library and I try to assist them in their educational needs. I am pretty blessed to be able to interact with them for their entire high school careers.

I would love to service this diverse group of high school students.

I would also love to assist their teachers in many ways. My library could help provide an awesome place for educational opportunities and more.

My Project

I think that I am in need of an "Extreme Library Makeover". No, my students need this makeover. I have so many ideas for the future of the library! I see the students working together in collaborative groups, using the new tables and technology that is available. I see students getting comfortable on some soft seating and curling up with a good book. I see another set of students sitting at the new barista area taking a brain break and catching up over a cup of coffee before school begins.

I see my library bustling with activity and students eager to visit.

I smell fresh coffee being made at the barista station. I feel the freshness that the room brings from the color of the walls, to the new lighting, and the new furniture bringing it all together.
