Entering the Library - Before
Looking through to the preschoolers area in the back. You cannot see all
the light streaming in (or any kids that may venture back there) because of
the large wooden shelving.
Entering the Library - After
Now when you look through to the back wall, you see the big picture
windows AND the librarian and teachers can actually see any preschoolers
that may be lurking back there.
The Preschoolers Area - Before
Again, it’s functional but not FUNctional. There’s no seating but the
there are rugs that are used for the kids to sit on.
The Preschoolers Area - After
The shelves are deeper and house more books, enabling us to take down the
large obstructive shelves separating the area. Added seating, comfy pillows and
interlocking floor mats (not shown) make space for up to 24 preschoolers.
