E201: Remaking School Libraries — Library and Tech Share a Space

10:45 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Alison Seese, Head Librarian, Georgetown Day School
Evelyn K Schwartz, Librarian and Teacher, Georgetown Day School

In the summer of 2014, Georgetown Day School renovated the entire second floor of its high school campus, and the heart of the renovation was the library! It removed some stacks, added moveable walls, brought the IT department into the library, created an innovation lab/makerspace, and, of course, added beanbag chairs and genius bars. Is it a marriage made in heaven? Find out more at this session, where the speakers candidly share their experiences, from the planning process to the honeymoon period and beyond. Discussions range from the big, tangible issues of managing shared spaces to the more subtle ones of delineating respon- sibilities and services to the library users, be they students or teachers. The speakers provide a list of “do’s!” and “don’ts!” for those who are also thinking of remaking their libraries.
