Design the School Library of the Future

Crosstown High Explorers will access most of their texts digitally on their iPads. So, what does that mean for the space that a traditional school would call its "library?" 

What should it contain? How should it feel? What should we call it?

Avid and reluctant readers alike are invited to join as we use design thinking to answer these questions and start designing our school library. 

Reserve your spot here!
