Bec in the library

Yet again, I have moved things around in my darling little library.

It was a much needed change after much teeth gnashing and hand wringing. My library was in “zones” like 21stC libraries “should be” but it just wasn’t working AT ALL.

The space wasn’t working for the kids I have and the ways in which the building as a whole is used. So, I had to make the space fit the users, not what I thought it SHOULD be like.

Added to this a big influx of books through donations, Scholastic and even (GASP!) some internal funding, and we had just run out of space in the current configuration.

So, here are some images of my new (and improved?) space.

It’s nowhere near done and certainly not perfect but as an ever evolving space, I feel like it is getting there!

Feedback is welcome and encouraged!
