A Minn. school library disposed of nearly all of its print collection and transformed the space into a collaborative-work center where students read e-books and print books, conduct research on computers, work on group projects and learn with the help of math and literacy coaches. "We used to think of a library as a building with stacks of books," Benilde-St. Margaret's School's principal, Sue Skinner, said. "Now we should think of it as a space where people come together to share ideas, be creative, access information, and even read."
