Libraries and Learning
Lee Rainie, Director of the PEW Research Centre recently presented “The next library and the people who will use it” based on findings from the latest PEW research into libraries and their use.
The annual International Games Day @ your library will hit libraries in 43 countries on 15 November this year. It celebrates games, learning, fun and play in libraries.
It’s not unusual for schools to have local preschools, kōhanga reo and language nests visiting their libraries, to welcome the wider community and to acclimatise children to the school environment.
What makes a great library? What takes a library from functional to fantastic?
ULearn first and foremost is a celebration of teaching and learning. It is meant to challenge, provoke, and support your practice in ways that are motivating and inspiring. Stepping out of your organisation and comfort zone for professional development is sometimes necessary for growth.
