Students at Connellsville Area Middle School dubbed it “Innovation Station.”
After the completion of a 3½-month transformation that was finalized this fall, the school’s media center is no longer a traditional library but an interactive, project-based learning space that puts collaborative learning at the forefront.
District interim Superintendent David McDonald said the renovation was the final project in a district-wide initiative to update school media centers.
“What we’re trying to provide are engaging learning spaces that are also rooted in literacy,” said McDonald. “It attracts kids. They want to go there. They want to collaborate.”
