What Is A Library?

I made a poster compiling all the grades’ answers to the question–What is a library? Some of the answers were so profound and wonderful; I was so proud to work with these intelligent and insightful kids!  Here are their answers:

A place….

  • for learning!
  • to be creative
  • to engineer
