Information Commons

ISB explores options for a middle school and high school library facility and program. An Information Commons merges traditional library and IT services under one umbrella. This center would provide tools and spaces that facilitate learning where students can access, master and go beyond the curriculum. Students could explore unique interests and make their ideas visible to others. A learning center could make peer tutors available for additional guidance, discussion and feedback. Comfortable, spacious, flexible, and multi-faceted, the IC would serve a diverse population.
