Library First Impressions.....What Does Yours Say?

When our students, teachers, parents and community come to the library we want them to feel excited, comfortable, happy, creative, safe and welcome from the start.
As Future Ready Librarians we want to cultivate community partnerships and design collaborate spaces to support the learning, collaboration and creativity of our communities.  Our libraries can achieve this and from the moment anyone steps through the door, we must capture this enthusiasm and desire to be part of the community cultivated here.

A library first impression means a lot and with a little creativity and passion, all of us can create this meaningful beginning just like Robin Williams,
 Krisi Harwood,
 Katie Smith Capshaw,
 Joyce Valenza,
 Sue Kowalski,
 Lori Riedel,
 Victoria Hussein and...
James Allen.  
When I asked this question in our Future Ready Librarians Facebook Group, our friends above shared their library entrances and doors, along with dozens of others.  It was so powerful to see everyones space and the impression these make.  

You can see this post here....and please add yours if you haven't yet. We'd love to see your library entrance too.  
And we started a Pinterest Board to share these library entrances and more too.  You will find School Library Doors and Entrances here....If you'd like to be a collaborator, let me know and I will add you.

Remember....first impressions mean a lot.  What does your library first impression say?
