Activity: Zone Maps

Zone maps offer a way to play around with collection space options and find a solution that aligns with your collection size and your design goals. Learn more by reading the below excerpt from High Impact School Library Spaces by Margaret Sullivan and then complete the reflection activity.



Use the above form, a blank piece of paper, whiteboard, or software like PowerPoint to create a zone map of your library collection. Begin with how things are, then play around to create different possibilities of what you could change to better align with your community's needs, as discussed in Lesson 2, "Assessing Community Needs."
