I'm kind of nervous. If I move forward with an idea (and it passes through the powers that be) we will lose 150 plus feet of shelving. And right now it's all non-fic, unless I can figure out another way to rearrange our rectangular shape (inside is fiction split into regular and everybody, outside of the rectangle is non-fic).
BUT I think ... I hope ... it would be worth it to create a small walled off room in the library. Not big enough for a full class but big enough for a small group.
My PLAN is for it to be a small ... call it Makerspace or Podcasting Studio or whatever you want to call it. A somewhat quieter (and more secure ... more locked cabinets!) than our out in the hallway space. Admin didn't quite understand me at first and thought it would be a full classroom. Which, to their credit, their first thought was "that would be awesome for you." But no. Can't get rid of ... 750-900 feet of shelving.
Do I worry it will be commandeered for tutoring? Yes. I do. Doing it anyway. I used to think I was relatively on top of weeding until I found this little gem today ... (and apologies if this book changed the life of some little person somewhere along the way--it's just not been used HERE!)
