Good morning all.  Our school district is planning a referendum.  As
part of the plan, our main gym will be converted into a 5th - 12th grade
media center.  I've been asked to come up with some ideas for the plan.
I already know that they plan to have a very open area.  In other words,
the middle and high school students will not be physically separated
even if the collections are.  I would like input on this.  I would like
to know if any of you have experience with this sort of library space.
I would like to know what you consider the positives and negatives of
such a plan.  Our high school has about 400 students and our middle
school has about 300.  In the past, those numbers have been fairly
stable.  I do not know how they are planning to staff this space.  That
will not be addressed until after the referendum passes.  Thanks for the
input!  It will be a great help.
