Kids love transformers.

So after Fox Prairie Elementary School’s library media center (LMC) got a makeover this summer, students are understandably excited about the new spaces in old places.

Elementary school students can spend a lot of time in their school’s library, whether it’s searching for books, watching videos or viewing presentations. So having a space that suits a variety of needs is important.

Now, nearly every bookcase in the center is now mobile, and all of the other furniture can be moved to create a variety of learning spaces to meet students’ needs. Soft seating provides comfortable spots for students to read, as well as a new Imaginarium Lab, where students can spread out while they are learning.

Fox Prairie principal Krista Huntley Rogers said there are “endless possibilities of ways to transform our space.”

“Our students are so excited to have soft seating to enjoy reading all of our wonderful books,” she wrote in an email to the Hub. “It is an amazing new space.”
