I oversee five school libraries, grades K-8. Pending approval in a town referendum, we will be building a new school for grades 3-5. I am proposing a Learning Commons in the new school. The superintendent, principal, and architect are all excited about the prospect. I met with the architect yesterday. He has been doing research about Learning Commons and is finding a lot of information about college level and high school level Learning Commons, but very little about elementary level Learning Commons. He has asked me to do some research as well. Can anyone point me to anything at all, whether it be online or print resources that I can share with the architect? I did purchase the two books by David Loertscher about creating a Learning Commons.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
