Rendering of New Ridgewood High Library Unveiled

Do you like the latest design of what the high school library could look like in Sept. 2013?

Ridgewood is closing in on having a new state-of-the-art library at its high school, and the latest drawings of what it might look like have been released.

As Patch previously reported, the needed to start construction around the end of June.

"Ridgewood High School needs a library/media center with flexible spaces for a variety of activities," the group says on its website, stressing the need to renovate the 48-year-old space.

"Instead of a traditional library, the new Learning Commons will become the center of intellectual activity and academic life at the high school. The Learning Commons will serve as a multimedia center, reading room, study hall, group study venue, movie theater and home for students, staff and parents to meet – all in one!"

The organization, an offshoot of the RHS HSA, hopes to raise the remainder of the $250,000 estimated for the project before its big cocktail party on Jan. 11.

The cocktail party, to be held at The Hilton in Woodcliff Lake, will cost $110 per person or $200 per couple. Along with an open bar, musical group Matthew Friedman and the Uptown Sounds will perform.

Looks like it is for chatting not research or private study. High stools are very uncomfortable for long term work. Wider desks for group projects. Some ergonomic research needed.

Are there any books in this "library"?

If I recall, they are going to be placed around the perimeter of the "library". But lets be honest, nobody uses them at the moment anyways. And even those who would like to take out books would find that the RHS library can't compete with the public library.
