I am currently volunteering in the library at an elementary school. The school principal has communicated to the teachers that children who wish to spend 30 minutes in the library must bring one or more of the following: a book, paper and art supplies or games (LegoBlocks). The librarian discourages any child from browsing in the library (somewhat of a contradiction). When a curious child is drawn towards the shelf, the librarian almost rebukes them and sends the child back to her classroom with a request to bring a book or art work or games.
As a volunteer, I am currently refereeing the students and preserving the "status quo" imposed by the librarian. There is an opportunity to change minds of the librarian as well as the teachers in a SF way so that the system can support the creativity and spontaneity of the child that wanders into the library.
Feel free to chime in if you have any SF ideas that I can incorporate and become a more active volunteer.
Thanks in advance.
