The Learning Commons at John Witherspoon Middle School opened in September 2013. Six months earlier it had been a gymnasium! This speedy transformation from gym to Learning Commons took intensive collaborative effort between supportive administrators, district technology staff, and adventurous teachers and students. Walk through the process from conception to implementation, including the inspiration we took from other amazing library facilities and programs around the world.
