In late 2008, teacher librarian Ian McLean began to transform an old portable library into a fresher, more efficient, inviting and innovating workspace and eventually a new BER library. The conference seminar will be supported by a PowerPoint show, documenting sources of decor items, itemised costings, and how other schools have adapted these ideas for their own library spaces. References will be made back to the original work of Kevin Hennah (with permission), who has followed the progress of these particular makeovers and has presented updates of Penrith PS’s successes in his own presentations.
