Great Falls Public Schools
Log Number: APP-246082-OLS-20
Great Falls Public Schools will transform the library at North Middle School from an underused space to a 21st century collaborative learning commons. Library staff will conduct focus groups with students, teachers, and administrators about the library redesign and the reimagined library service model to help create a sense of ownership in the process. Librarians will also visit other newly renovated library spaces before reconfiguring their space. The collaborative space will include more functional furniture, new technology, and a Makerspace. The librarians will coordinate with the PTA to hold events for parents to ensure their engagement. Library staff will engage in professional development opportunities and share their learnings with teachers and administration in ongoing professional learning sessions on inquiry-based learning and standards-based teaching.
