Chronicles of a Media Center Renovation: Part I

To put the process of the renovations in perspective, I thought I should back up and post a few “Before” photos. The gallery illustrates the library in 2008 when I first arrived at Bob Jones High School and the library in 2012 before, during, and after my mini renovation.

Four years later, I was selected for the library media specialist job. I wanted to change the atmosphere of the library and give it an updated look.  None of my ideas were small – the plans I drew up called for moving every bookshelf, every table, and dismantling the GIANT circulation desk. My guestimated timeline was much shorter than the two and a half months it actually took, but I finished before the first day of school. Even though I didn’t get to do everything I planned, I’m really pleased with the way it turned out.

My motto: Go big, or go home.
