Creating a New Library: Recipes for Transformation offers ways to make your library group space into one conducive to transformational learning. The book is structured as a cookbook with an introduction to the idea, then directions on its execution.
Next, the book gives tips on how to adapt each ‘recipe’ to fit other specific needs, including other kinds of libraries. The layout follows three strands: space, community, and outreach. Each section includes five elements critical to transforming spaces:, fun, stimulation, safety, freedom, and personal.
From providing coffee in the morning, to a full Personal Librarian program, this book presents useful and engaging ideas for transformational learning.
