Architects came to discuss with staff and parents what the library and Colab could look like. Looked at using the existing space to reconfigure and connect other resources to the library and make the library a more flexible and open learning space. Phase 1 would use the existing library space with more flexible furniture and opening the space up for more flexible use. Phase 2 would open up doors to the classrooms on the shared walls with the library and open the ceiling and add baffles for improved sound proofing to allow for small group work.
