Are you looking to create a new library? Are you planning to move an existing library to a new space? Are you planning to update your library? If so, then this publication was written especially for you. It is a guide to a journey few librarians are privileged to travel. Written by Head Chartered Librarian, Lynn Winkworth, it documents step by step the creation, development and realisation of the new library at Headington School, its move to a new central location, and the transformation of a traditional school library into a state-of-the-art library facility. Written with practical advice at every turn, Lynn Winkworth invites us to share in her adventure, and concludes with three check lists, The Planning – The Practicalities – The Opening, to help you along the way.  It is a unique guide that will support and assist you in your own 'Library Adventure'. Headington School Library is a previous winner of the SLA Inspiration Award.
