#1. It's too hot sitting under the skylights.
#2 The computers need to be covered by a patio umbrella because the sunlight casts a glare on the screens.
The other problem with the circulation desk is that is faces the entry of the media center. This is welcoming, but you are not able to see children behind you as you check out and return.
So, I set about getting the circulation desk moved. My husband came out and measured the entire library and its contents. He then created a foam board map of the library with cut outs of the furniture. This way I will be able to visually present the new layout to my principal and key administration.
These are some articles and books that I have been reading that I found helpful in what a Media Center should look like.

I will be "selling" the idea next week. Wish me luck.
