One of the small pleasures in life is to find a quiet spot, relax in a comfortable chair and read a book. There are those among us, however, that
do not require the solitude or quiet. They can read in a busy airport or in a noisy restaurant. Chances are, most people have a preference
about which environment they desire for maximum enjoyment of the written word. In a school setting, students should have the same choice.
All students are familiar with the library and know the importance placed on “quiet” in this area. What may come as a surprise to educators is
that librarians are privy to inside information about the environment within the library. The secret is this – privacy shields. All public libraries and
institutions of higher learning offer these quiet zone areas for reading and study. They spend large amounts of money to provide these
individualized spaces because they are extremely effective for learning.
Dr. Arthur W. Hafner, Dean of University Libraries at Ball State University, states, “Our libraries offer a large number of study tables and
comfortable chairs throughout for both individual and collaborative study. Some are in large open spaces and surrounded by other study
tables. Others are arranged in groups of two or three, and some carrels stand-alone for private or small group use. Informal questioning of
students reveals that they enjoy studying, learning, and collaborating in an environment where others are doing the same.”
During a student’s early years in kindergarten, elementary and middle school it is vital that they develop strong reading and language skills.
Most libraries at these levels only offer large tables or desks, mostly due to budget constraints. ClassroomProducts.com has the solution with
their inexpensive, portable privacy shields. Kenny Kiskis from ClassroomProducts.com states, “Libraries have used study carrels for years
knowing their capability of keeping noise levels down, and giving user’s privacy and a better environment for focusing on their work.”
Regardless of the grade level, students should have study carrel spaces to read and learn. In the library setting this is particularly important to
fostering a love of books and a feeling of success during the reading process. The study carrels offered by ClassroomProducts.com will match
the needs of the learners and the budget of school.
