About the Author
On a trip back to my home state of Oregon, I was visiting with a public librarian on the Oregon coast; when I mentioned that I was a school librarian she said you must not be from around here. I was surprised and asked her why. She replied, Oh all the school libraries have been closed in these counties due to lack of funding. That conversation confirmed a suspicion that I have held for a long time; libraries are in jeopardy. We need to rebrand and remix our services to provide access to information along with tools and support for content creation. I've worked in schools and libraries in Oregon, Hawaii, Brussels, Vienna and Singapore as a teacher, counselor, school psychologist and librarian. I love books and reading, but I am equally passionate about designing learning spaces for all types of learners. This book describes the Why, What and How involved in changing a traditional library into a unique center for innovation.
