There aren’t many libraries that can claim to have a giant wall of computer monitors, a green screen, an aquaponics lab and a slide going from the second to first floor, but the one at Eminence Independent certainly can.
The school’s new EdHub opened this year and it’s offering students much more than the conventional library. Along with the classic shelves of books, students at Eminence also have access to eight different labs that can be used for taking tours with virtual reality goggles, filming projects for class, a LEGO wall and more.
“It’s all about getting kids more involved,” said Librarian James Allen. “You can’t pick up a shelf of books and move it around.”
