Now is a perfect time…to discover…

School libraries of the 21st century are now referred to as the Learning Commons. They are meant to be classrooms where teachers and students learn collaboratively in a wide variety of ways. At Robert Munsch P.S we’ve decided to take it a step further. Today, I am thrilled to introduce to you The Discovery Hub. Our Teacher-Librarian Mrs. Mott is the best person to explain the space, the vision for it and the plan for its use. Be sure to drop by at our Meet the Staff Night and meet her.

For now, let’s have the pictures do the talking:
