Over summer, I felt like doing a bit of light reading. OK, fine: the library renovation/revamp required a relocation of the collection. It’s sad to know that the entirety of our King Library can now fit inside one classroom.
I love eBooks (I think – still haven’t finished reading one in its entirety on my iPad) and what they offer in terms of cost and space savings, and I recognize that there were a lot of items in the library that hadn’t been used in ages, but there’s something concrete and comforting in the sight and smell of these stacks of books in my classroom. If it weren’t for the need to fit students in there, I’d like to keep them!
