Book Harmony: Bringing Voices Together to Create a More Responsive Library

How can our libraries be not only student-driven but student-reflective? If our ultimate goal is comfort and confidence for every reader, then every aspect of our libraries – collection, physical design, programming, outreach – should be both responsive and proactive, a constantly evolving organism that thrives on student engagement and advocacy. Our students must know their voice has impact and the look and composition of their school library should be evidence of that.
