Brooklyn Center Community School District #286
Log Number: APP-246125-OLS-20
Brooklyn Center Community Schools District will transform the District's elementary and secondary school libraries into 21st century learning hubs. Library staff will form an advisory group of stakeholders, conduct surveys and focus groups with students, teachers, families, and community members, and visit local Learning Labs to help inform the project. Staff will reconfigure the space with more functional furniture and a more collaborative layout. In order to serve students outside of traditional school hours, library staff will develop a laptop check-out and WiFi hotspot lending program, extend library hours before and after school, and hold a monthly community event.
