Engaging Students, Staff and the Community to Develop a Fit-for-Purpose Next Generation Library
In 2015, Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School noticed that borrowing rates were decreasing in the School Library, and that it was no longer a destination of choice within the campus.
To respond to this troubling trend a strategic review was conducted examining how stakeholders – students, staff and the greater community – leveraged the space and what facilities they expected from a modern school library.
Ahead of the Next Generation Libraries Summit 2018 we chat to Matthew O’Brien, Deputy Head of School and Jan Pocock, Teacher Librarian at Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School. In this article Matthew and Jan explore how they engaged students, staff and the broader community in the development of their next generation library, and further delve into how the new Library has created a culture that educates, encourages and enlightens.
