Penn Yan Academy, NY
The Penn Yan Academy Library Media Center strives to provide learning experiences that improve students’ abilities to effectively interact with information in a variety of formats. Because ease of access to all resources was important in this media center, careful consideration was taken in the product selection and spacial planning. Resources available for students and faculty include magazines, newspapers, desktop and laptop computers, printers, video recording and editing equipment with software, an interactive whiteboard, and much more. Demco also incorporated a custom built-in counter top that wraps around one area of the library to provide students a surface to set their books or other materials while browsing the stacks. Mobile tables and chairs were installed wherever possible to increase the functionality of the space.
