Libraries can be, should be and are the hub of the school

From parentcentral.ca:
“A contemporary library that is running well should be the learning hub, the go-to place that kids flock to when they need to find something out,” said Kelsall of John G. Althouse Middle School in Etobicoke.

“In my library, kids come here to play chess, it’s the place they go to knit, run the Eco-Team — it’s the home base for student government.

“It’s where they can get really good reading materials, books they can’t get in the public libraries because the waiting lists are too long.”
