dc.description.abstractIn the 21st century, the needs of students are changing and the library is evolving to better meet those needs. For many libraries, this includes a transformation of the space into a flexible and functional space where students can collaborate and communicate freely and effectively. Classroom teachers have utilized learning centers for a number of years to address the needs of the individual learners in their classrooms, and librarians are taking notice. The benefits that teachers are gaining in the classroom can be translated to the library curriculum and space. This literature review demonstrates how school librarians can incorporate learning centers into the library curriculum to provide students with a variety of activities that can enhance learning, increase motivation, and improve attitudes towards content knowledge, thus helping to transform the library into a learning commons.en_US
