Recipes for Transformation
Creating a New Library: Recipes for Transformation offers ways to make your library group space into one conducive to transformational learning. The book is structured as a cookbook with an introduction to the idea, then directions on its execution.
Next, the book gives tips on how to adapt each recipe to fit other specific needs, including other kinds of libraries. The layout follows three strands: space, community, and outreach.
