I've recently become enamored with the Danish concept of 'hygge' (pronounced hyoo-gah) which is an untranslatable lifestyle idea that basically means 'cozy.' I plan to make the school library into a hygge only space during exams week. Here's how:
  1. Close all blinds and turn off all overhead lights.

  2. Project a fireplace video with realistic sounds.

  3. Play quiet and upbeat Christmas music.

  4. No studying!

    This might seem counterintuitive, but these kids study like crazy. I want to give them a space where they don't feel like they have to!
