Sorry for the late update on how my Media Center is being made into a new space. It has been a work in progress.....
I am trying to make my blog a bit more modern feeling this year. As my Media Center is drastically changing with the movement of Makerspace I feel I need to revise my mission a bit. As I was exploring other blogs and websites I came across this mission statement from Colleen Graves, Librarian/Maker at Ryan Library. Her mission statement was exactly what I have been wanting and striving for. Here it is:
I love this quote about libraries and Makerspaces:Carrie Barron, MD and Alton Barron, MD are co-authors of The Creativity Cure: How to Build Happiness with Your Own Two Hands).
We are a work in progress. My Media Center underwent some major changes this summer. Some of which I knew were happening and some of which I didn't. When my principal called me a week and a half before school started and said "the shelves didn't get ordered" I freaked out. I immediately went in and this is what I saw:Now don't get me wrong the Maker tables are great but I lost lots of shelves because of them. I had a new wall that I still am not sure what the purpose is, and I have lost lots of shelving space due to a much larger air conditioner and heater unit. I immediately went into survival mode. What would I need to do in the next five days to make this place ready for kids?
Didn't know I was getting this maker tables...sort of like them...but stressing because I lost some shelving space.
Can this be ready in a week?
My sink used to be here!
More wall space gone due to larger air conditioner unit.
