For the 2018-2019 school year, our libraries will be encouraged to implement the ubuntu philosophy in the libraries by teaching and modeling four core principles. They are,
- Be curious
- Be considerate of the needs of others
- Create a reading community
- Leave the library better than you found it
Each school will be encouraged to participate in our GSD Elementary Library Design Challenge to create illustrations for each of the four core principles. For more information about that challenge, please check out this post. Four illustrations will be selected to be part of our ubuntu poster that will then be printed and distributed to every elementary school library.
