On Nov. 3, Herricks Board of Education, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tony Sinanis, district administrators and students officially unveiled the new Library Learning Suite at Herricks High School.
The newly renovated space offers a modern, welcoming atmosphere with flexibility for students. “The goal of the design was to create an area that encourages participatory learning and allows for an understanding of various sources of information,” shared Library Media Specialist Samantha Gerantabee. “To achieve this, we incorporated three distinctive learning areas: cocoon zones, active and flexible seating, and collaborative spaces,” she continued. The Library Learning Suite will maintain and update digital technologies to promote 21st century learning and content acquisition and distribution.
After the ribbon cutting, students had the opportunity to sit with members of the Board of Education and school administration in an informal “fireside chat” presenting ideas, comments and addressing concerns for the year ahead.
