In February 2016, we visited with Vice-Principal Lucia Coretti and Library Technician Caroll-Ann Stelle of Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School (Lester B. Pearson School Board) to learn about the changes the school had done to shift their traditional school library to a modern library learning commons. There was so much to learn from their experiences that we split the interview into a few segments.
This third video shows how they tackled the problem of space. While many school libraries may have the problem of insufficient space, the issue at PCHS was that the area was really very big. This short film shows how they utilized the concept of “zones,” to make it easier for students to understand how the library could be used.
