Different Learning Spaces!
On Thursday April 30th my class headed to the DLR LexiCon Library for a
tour. When we got there we were greeted by Marian Keyes, a librarian,
she showed us all around the library, she showed all the different
levels in the library and different areas, such as the study areas and
meeting rooms. There was also a stage area with seating for 101 people, a
cafe and an outdoor area. Marian told us that they are going to be
getting a 3D printer in the library along with a number of Apple Mac
computers for use in the library. She also showed us how to take books
out using a machine that scans a sticker on the inside of the book. You
can also drop books back by scanning them and placing them on a
converter belt that sorts them into boxes. All in all it was a very
interesting and informative tour and I hope we can go back there soon.
