It s a perfect resource for any school or library media specialist that is considering redesigning the library space on both the small and large scale level." --Mike Karlin - EdTech RoundUp

I saw Diana Rendina speak at an FETC conference 2 years ago now and was instantly hooked. The topic of her presentation then is the premise of Reimagining Library Spaces- taking the current library spaces we have as media specialists/school librarians and making them future-ready, collaborative, and relevant spaces.
You do not have to have a ton of money to make your school library current and forward-thinking. In fact, Rendina started out with a very small budget and was able to make her space over with some elbow grease, paint, and creative thinking. Some of her great ideas and advice are in this book, in short but informative chapters as well as numerous photos. Rendina's photos are of real-life spaces, with varying budgets and space sizes to work with. The point is- you can do this, too.
I love the ISTE standards throughout the book, which can be especially helpful in justifying makeovers to administrators, fellow teachers, and even our students (who rarely ask for justification- they know school libraries need help!).
Although I am familiar with Rendina through social media as well as her blog, I felt that this book still showed me some new ideas and tricks as well as providing the ISTE standards I may be pulling from in the future.
