How can you make a reading place in your community, school or business?
How is a reading place different from a library or a learning commons?
A library is a place that holds a collection of books and other learning materials for people to read, borrow, and reference. Libraries can be great spaces for community connection, they focus on the circulation of reading materials, and often offer support services to the community.
A learning commons is a place dedicated to learning, studying, and collaborating with others, or on their own. These spaces are often intended to have visitors work with one another, and get people involved in the space using shared tables and computer technology.
A reading place has elements of both a library and a learning commons, but above all is a place that cherishes reading by creating unique places that inspire, and create a sense of wonder for children and adults alike!
