The media center in Alexandria Area High School has begun to fill with furniture, desks, books and computers, making the room student ready.

After multiple trips to the Twin Cities to look at various options, a group of students helped pick out the modern furniture, all of which is flexible so that it can be moved around with ease.

The students said they wanted to find soft chairs for comfort that would be easy to rearrange to fit various study situations.

Some of the chairs are equipped with flexible desks that can be moved around for convenience.

Other small desks and tables are also available for the students to move around as needed, and some of the areas have partial petitions to offer more privacy.

Similar furniture can be found throughout the school, providing students multiple areas to gather, work on projects, or have a quiet place to study.

The media center has several large windows that let in natural light, as well as individual study rooms. One thing the room does not include a lot of is bookshelves.

Four rows of shelving in the center of the room will hold books. With most things in today’s learning environment being digital, the need for books and bookshelves is minimal.
