With its centralized location within the building, the library/media center is easily accessible to all grade levels. The media center was designed with a whimsical and airy atmosphere in mind to create a fun learning environment for students. The entrance to the media center captures the feel of the outdoors, with clerestory windows and suspended-cloud ceiling systems. This feel is continued into the media center with the use of sky-like colors and high ceilings.
Technology and innovation are key aspects of this project. A wall-mounted screen is connected to the librarian’s computer to allow a wide variety of media to be projected to students.
