Creating truly vibrant & functional learning centres!
The library is a dynamic learning hub that needs to accommodate a range of distinct zones. These include space for independent research, project based collaboration, lectures, meetings, interactions and presentations. Flexible design is essential to support this variety of activities in a social space that encourages interaction, conversation and knowledge exchange to process information, develop ideas and problem solve.

Create areas that foster serendipitous learning.
As a starting point, consider the types of study and activity that students will undertake in the Library then create spaces within the space to accommodate.
The Collaborative Zone
Collaborative learning cultures are lively environments which coexist within traditional quiet reading spaces. Promote group work by creating a room within a room using high surface desks for groups of 2-6 or circular table arrangements with good eye contact for effective communication to reap the benefits of peer to peer interaction.
The Quiet Study Zone
Gain new insights to use in new and different ways with a calm and quiet space to facilitate depth in thought. Reflective zones allow students to work independently to explore new ideas and reflect on past learnings. Be it in a reading nook, at a private workstation or online utilising digital resources.
The Social Zone
Create a social hub as you expose students to experiences that help them find their passion! This student led approach is best facilitated within an informal, comfortable zone within the library setting. With the teacher as the mentor, students can learn socially by observation as they’re organised into workshop projects centered around a common interest.
The Librarian’s Zone
Be it the circulation desk, the office or the back room this is the heart of the library where all the important working functions take place. Providing adequate storage for the varying processes that are undertaken is vital for this space, as well as creating personal spaces for the staff that perform their duties here. Clear lines of sight are paramount and ensure students have access to the human resources they require when on their discoveries.
