The idea behind the activity space is to bring the feel of outside into the space, so that it is informal and free, for activities like storytelling. Select a zone in the library, ideally with natural light and a high ceiling, about 200 sft (14 x 14) and create the feeling of an amphitheatre with stepped seating, about 4 curved rows raised from the floor. Position the stage at ground level. The walls can have softboards and provision for hanging posters. Use a combination of warm wood and bright coloured laminates. Loose cushions add to the warmth. Some storage space is required for books and other materials.
