One question I often get from schools who have a bit of money put aside to transition their Library to a Learning Commons is where to buy furniture that encourages student collaboration and creativity.
Several Learning Commons staff have contributed to a collaborative Google Sheet to share recommendations of suppliers and manufacturers. Please find the sheet here. Since this is a collaborative effort, we welcome and encourage you to add your suggestions or comments there!
As a caveat, we know that a Learning Commons is absolutely much more than a change of furniture. To find out more about the shift from a Library to a Learning Commons, please have a look at the Library to Learning Commons Implementation Guide.
