The Night Librarian



The perfect study environment


This year I began proctoring the nighttime study hall in my boarding school library once a week until 10 p.m.  I was immediately struck by how the room we provide for this nightly event is not at all conducive to effective study.  So, I am now in pursuit of the "perfect" study environment for my residential students.  Of course, there are not many boarding school librarians writing about our unique needs, so I often turn to colleges and universities for advice.





My mission this semester is to look at the location, atmosphere, private / group study spaces, resources needed for study, and minimizing distractions in my library at night.
