Good-bye Summer (almost) Hello BACK TO SCHOOL!

I have been busy getting this learning space ready for workshops and meetings happening in the Library next week.  There are loads of laminating projects to do for teachers and staff, Audio Visual equipment to label and organize for use, resource materials to prepare for distribution to  teachers, booking calendars to set up, tutorials and instructions to update and so on.  To keep me inspired this week, I’ve put up a simple but powerful bulletin board in the Library entranceway:
