The Next Chapter: Library to Learning Commons

deweyThe Carlisle Education Foundation is pleased to announce our new initiative, The Next Chapter: Library to Learning Commons. With your help, we will raise funds to renew the Carlisle Public School Library and create a hub for innovation, collaboration and creativity! Phase 1 (site renovations) and Phase 2 (furniture) are nearly complete. Check out the renderings of the finished space below!

Our goal is to design a kid-friendly, welcoming center that is flexible enough to meet the different needs of those who use the space. We have completed a space makeover with new paint and carpeting, and have purchased mobile shelving units and age-appropriate adjustable furniture that will be installed in the next few weeks. Phase 3, which we hope to cap off with proceeds from the CEF auction, includes state-of-the-art technology including laptops and tablets to create a flexible and fluid collaborative environment for all to enjoy.

Through the generosity of our donors from the auction and annual appeal, CEF is pleased to announce that will will make an initial donation of $40,000 to launch the campaign. Please help match it with your gift today so that we can reach our project goal of $125,000 by Summer 2016. Just Dewey it!
