  • Sacred Heart School Library Redevelopment

    1. 1. Library Redevelopment: Stage 1
    2. 2. The beginning • Consultation with children • Small working group: BOT Chair and two parents • Inspiration for use of space and design • Meetings with Maxine Ramsey from School Library Services • Collection weeding • Consultation with School Community at School Fair
    3. 3. Consultation • Children were asked their opinions about the Library by BOT Chair • Children were invited to take part in a “Dream Library” competition as part of the School Fair • Community invited to share their ideas at the School Fair By Hannah Botting
    4. 4. School Fair: a chance to share ideas & see the Dream Library art competition
    5. 5. Childrens’ opinions I want our library to be bright, and have lots of colour. Visiting our library should take longer. I would like it to take a long time. It would be nice to be able to have a table or something where you could write down things from the books, and also a chair for if you are going to be there a long time. I would like the library to be warm. And cosy. And welcoming. And smell good.
    6. 6. I want to be able to reach all the books, because maybe they are good ones at the top. It would be great to have more books and new ones. What I want most is places to sit and read in the library. Maybe cushions but best would be chairs, but they cost lots of money. I would like a computer in our library, to find out things that the books we have in there can't tell me.
