Changes in school library at Sanborn Central underway

This table and oodle stools were just some of the things purchased by the Sanborn Central Booster Club for the changes being made in the school library. The table has wheels so it can be moved and locked into place, and the stools are stackable so they can become more than one seat and are flexible for kids to wiggle while listening to stories, which is helpful for some kids to focus.

Sanborn Central’s seventh through 10th grade English teacher, Mrs. Susan Farrell-Poncelet, attends the state Technology in Education (TIE) Conference every year. For the past few years, she has learned about Makerspace areas and how they make kids want to learn more and/or go to the library more because they get to “mess” with things and do hands-on activities. She came to the conclusion that in order for that to work in Sanborn Central, they were going to have to revamp the layout of the library and make more space.

So, Mrs. Farrell-Poncelet spoke to Mrs. Jolene Enfield, the school librarian, and Mrs. Enfield was on board with it, telling Mrs. Farrell-Poncelet that Ms. Jennifer Larson, the first grade teacher, had also been discussing with the librarian about some much needed changes in the library for more space and to make it more enticing to kids of all ages.
