Andrea Cooney shares with us the beautiful library at the Sheikh Zayed Private Academy in the United Arab Emirates. This school strives to mix tradition with current and future needs to create interesting, evocative flexible spaces for learning and teaching. The Majlis is part of this approach, drawing on the cultural heritage of the region while supporting the concept of the library as a centre for community, knowledge and interaction.
