Michigan's Model School Library for the 21st Century

  • West Maple School Library was the Model School Library for Michigan for the 2021-2022 school year. We are committed to sharing our space with Michigan districts interested in starting or expanding their school library programs for their students.

    If you visit, you will see planned lessons for students and classrooms, the library space, and how the space is used. You will also get answers to questions you have about implementing programs, student use, community value, and library policies and practice.

    Please contact Carrie Betts cbetts@birmingham.k12.mi.us  to arrange a visit.
