I'll be attending a meeting shortly to help plan a school library that'll serve a 
new high school currently under construction. I'd love to hear from any of you who 
have recent experience in Launching a new high school facility; what works, what 

Actually much about the basic structure of the facility is already, quite 
literally, set in stone, so let's talk a few specifics: I understand, for example, 
that the facility will have 5 direct hallway exits, as well as 4 exits into 
adjacent spaces that lead to hallways. Has anyone dealt with a library facility 
that has multiple means of egress?

The plans also show an open second floor "Gallery," an area designated as a "cyber 
café," overlook the main floor of the library facility. Whaddaya think about that?

I'd also like to hear from anyone using wi-fi access throughout their facility. How 
does that play out on a day-to-day basis? I am intertested, as well, in hearing 
from anyone who even knows of anyone who uses RFID tags to manage circulation in 
their school library. I am unaware of any school libraries using RFID at this 
time--Am I wrong about that?

Tell me anything--positive, negative, or in-between--about your new High School 
facility. I want to learn from you!
