Librarian Stefanie Gaspari Shares The Past and Future of Our School Libraries | Education Vanguard #93

The library.
Ah yes, the library.  
For people of my age (Generation X) the library still brings back scary memories of a place where I might get into trouble if I spoke too loudly.
Stefanie Gaspari helps us understand that libraries are no longer that type of place and that it is time to return to their original design: A community space for sharing ideas and learning.
For Stefanie, that looks like a multi-use space designed to engage a variety of learners from the rugby team to the quiet student looking for a little refuge and time with a good book.  A space setup up to prototype new ideas and learn.
Where was Stefanie when I was in High School? 😉


Stefanie is an eternal optimist, a passionate educator, and self-confessed bookworm.
An advocate for ‘all things library’, she is curious about big ideas, learning spaces and the future of information in the digital age.
