Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces

Active Learning - Definition

Active learning positions learners of all ages as co-creators of knowledge and experience. It is participatory, informal, interest-driven and relevant to real life. Active learning emphasizes the vital connection between interests, peer interaction, and learning content, and adheres to four learning principles.


Transforming Library Spaces for Community Engagement

From May 2013 – June 2014, WebJunction partnered with public libraries in Washington state to explore practical and adaptable solutions for public library space transformation. While this program, Transforming Library Spaces for Community Engagement, has ended, there are many resources available that were created as part of the program. Visit the program page to find out more and explore the resources.


As the Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces program gets underway, more resources will be shared. Stay tuned!
