Design on a Dime: School Library Edition

674

Published on

Presented by Kathleen Galarza and Renee Rogers at the NJASL 2013 Fall Conference, October 5, 2013.

Join Kathleen and Renee as they share simple strategies and unexpected sources to take your school library from drab to fab with little to no budget. See dramatic school library transformations through before and after pictures. Learn simple strategies that not only changed the way the libraries looked, but also improved the ways the libraries (and the librarians!) were perceived and used by the school communities.

  • Poll Title: Let's try some interactive polling. Tell us your name:

  • Make Low-Budget, High Impact Improvements Using Six Simple Strategies and Unexpected Sources
  • Shelves taller than the studentsOpen back to back: Watch for falling books!No visibility across or front to back
  • Improved visibility
  • Boring!Long column of computers, no screens or boards
  • Hiding places / NO visibilityOvercrowded shelves, dusty old books, can’t see spine labels, little to no circulation
  • Open, bright, welcomingVisibility and distinct spaces for learning, reading, studying(actually a “during” pic)
  • Very few of the changes, if any, we accomplished aloneHelp, support, and permission
  • Invite everyone to participate
  • Unsure where to start? Weed and paint. Biggest impact and bang for your buck.
  • Student-created layout and design.
  • Ideas and materials – even furniture – through networks.Free shelves from listserv.Online fundraising: Donors Choose projects: Class sets, Reading series, Reading Rug
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for big ticket items. Once administrators and PTA see your investments in improving the library, they are more willing to help.
  • Can now comfortably accommodate two classes.
  • Comfortable spacesStudent groups asking to hold meetings and events formerly held in classrooms


  • Poll Title: What would you do if you found hundreds of old filmstrip canisters in your library?

  • Poll Title: In one_word, share a free or low-cost source for your library DIY projects:
