Children running a library?

treeResearching student involvement in school libraries, I came across a fabulous project carried out at a Montessori School in Rome. Have a look at the link – article starts on page 5. You can read about how the children learned about running their library, cataloguing books and even repairing  books.

“In the learning environment a school Library […] creates a wide range of learning and growth opportunities so that children become the main actors in building their own knowledge, being able to develop skills  […] based on collaboration, exchange and mutual help.”
