The key process

KEY has developed three turnkey models—a refurbished 20-40 foot container, a refurbished classroom, and a new-build school library. Each model is outfitted to ensure a safe, clean, and comfortable environment that promotes learning.

Our process consists of eight steps to ensure a smooth and effective library build, in which students are empowered by our Library Constitution.

We believe that democracy needs to be practiced to prepare students to participate in a democratic culture. Our libraries are governed and managed by a library council made up of students, a teacher and parent rep – our constitution requires that. The constitution integrates democratic values and rights and choice in the use, governance and management of the library. Before we provide libraries to communities and schools, a standard Library Constitution must be agreed upon and adopted by school boards and students.
