Fannin County Middle School is so excited to announce that our media center is now a full functioning learning commons. The transition was challenging but with the help of many the conversion was a success. The new furniture has been installed and all 14,000 books are now on the shelves after being delivered on January 2nd. The installation crew worked tirelessly and completed the installation process on January 3rd. The Media Center staff started putting the books on the shelves on January 4th and we were open for business by January 7th. All grades levels visited the library to renew and checkout books the week of the January 14th. We are so grateful that we received the L4GA grant which funded our remodel. Now we have flexible furniture that is conducive to collaboration, communication, and creation. The Learning Commons is a hub for participatory learning. Students are able to enjoy state of the art technology, resources, and flexible seating options in order to maximize their learning experience. The kids are so eager to come down to the Learning Commons to read in our new soft seating areas, use their new Chromebooks to complete their assignments, and utilize our new media tables to collaborate with group members while working on group projects. Transforming our Library Media Center into a state of the art Learning Commons has been a huge success! We couldn’t be more excited about the future. This is one step that our school has taken in order to ensure that we are providing all students with an education that prepares them to be successful and meet future challenges.
