How many times have you heard this?

In reality, humans are constantly making choices by what they see on the outside. Curb appeal, book cover art, window displays – we make decisions to go “inside” based on what we see on the exterior.

This summer I drove past a book store that had painted quotes on the windows of their store. Thinking about our windows, and wanting to draw students and staff attention, I thought “we can do this!”

This was truly a labor of love – it took probably 8 hours or more, but it seems to be working.  Students and staff have taken notice.

In addition to the quotes, we wanted to highlight some of the resources that the Library Learning Commons has to offer – technology help, a private work studio, a place for collaborative study groups, a place to research, a peer-to-peer coaching center, etc…

And finally, and most importantly the entrance declares the BHS Library Learning Commons is a place where all are welcome.
