Since the hour was pushed back, we have a new problem fourth block in the library. Cathedral ceilings that include glass panes provide a beautiful view of Carolina blue skies, but now that sunset is earlier, the bright afternoon sun shining through those high western windows wreaks havoc with the monitors on the eastern side of the library. Amazingly enough, our kids did not miss a beat as they made accommodations so they could continue researching Sirs Opposing Viewpoints and Gale’s Opposing Viewpoints in Context. This sunny outlook is taking place right now everyday from around 2:45 until dismissal at 3:30. No shades to pull. We have two pull down screens to use with our projector in the library as well, and by afternoon, the sun has forced us to put up and use a temporary mobile screen on the opposite side.
I’m not complaining though. There are worse problems we could have. As the days grow shorter and then longer again, this issue will traverse the library at different times of the day.
