As the new academic year approaches this September, students at Lincoln School and Perkins School are set to discover transformed libraries designed with an emphasis on fostering curiosity and creativity.
The renovated spaces, accomplished without new purchases, feature an appealing fresh look with student-friendly features including work tables, spacious floor space for story times, and cushioned bench seating by windows for reading.
The project was led by Katherine Hammill and Ryan Ayers of the Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES School Library System. Before the makeover, the team assessed the existing book collection, considering factors such as age and cultural relevance, leading to a more streamlined and inviting library environment.
Principals from both schools have expressed excitement about the revamped spaces, highlighting how the refreshed libraries can inspire students and serve as dynamic, new learning spaces for instruction beyond traditional classrooms.
