Anyone who had seen the MPH library before the arrival of COVID might have been a little jealous of MPH librarian's Liza Morrison's impeccable, spacious, modern digs. But, with a need for classroom space brought on by social-distancing requirements in the fall of 2020, the moment was short lived. The new library was parsed into Grade 3 and 4 classrooms, and the books were moved into the space between the gym and classroom hallway (some found their way farther down the hallway, too).
This year, Ms. Morrison has added another exciting twist to the library's availability by adding the MPH Little Library to the McNeil lobby and also posting QR codes around campus so students can check out books on their mobile devices.
The Little Library also has a reading nook and features popular new titles as well as periodicals.
It's a great example of the innovative approach that drives education at MPH. If it isn't quite as easy to bring students to the library, let's bring the library to them.
