New York Children’s Library Inspired by MI

In June 2019, the New York Real Estate Journal posted an article about a major redevelopment of the children’s section of the Port Washington Public Library in Port Washington, NY. According to a quote from Nancy Curtin, Port Washington Public Library director, the goal of the project was to create a modern library space that took into account the many ways children learn. At the heart of the new library is a “Tree of Knowledge,” inspired by the theory of multiple intelligences. The colorful tree is made of eight branches–one for each intelligence–each of which leads to a different learning area within the library.

It is exciting to see multiple intelligences present in such an important learning hub for children of all ages. We hope that the children and families of Port Washington, NY will be inspired to take an MI approach to learning and knowledge.
