FHSD Celebrates National Library Week


Gone are the days of hushed studying and mountains of books meant only for research. The traditional concept of a school library has long since gone by the wayside. The libraries of old have been transformed into forward-thinking Learning Commons (LC). Students do more than check out books and find a quiet space away from class. They come for makerspace, coding activities, real-world life lessons, and STEAM/STEM lessons.

Now known as Library Media Specialist (LMS), instead of librarians, these dedicated individuals do more than shelve books. They create mini lessons, promote healthy reading habits, and help keep the LC an inviting and friendly place for learning.

“FHSD’s LMS work hard to provide spaces that serve as the learning hub of our schools,” said Learning Commons Content Leader Andrea Head. “Learning Commons are busy, flexible spaces that provide a place for our students to find joy in reading, creativity with technology, exploration through makerspaces, and much more. Our LMS continually strive to grow in their profession and provide resources that serve the staff and students of FHSD.”

National Library Week aims to celebrate how valuable LCs have become, the important role FHSD LMS play, and the creative learning space that LCs have transformed into. Join FHSD in saying thank you to the important individuals who make learning and reading fun every day.
