This chapter highlights a design research and ethnographic study of the development of a library at the California College Preparatory Academy across Years 4–6 of the school’s history. The study grew from a shared interest in more deeply engaging students in reading. By tracking the development of school library at a secondary school where no library existed, this study explored the nature of the students’ responses to increased access to library resources, the impact of library services on the collaborative engagement of content area teachers, and the essential elements contributing to success or failure of the library evolution in this particular school environment. Grounded in a discussion of different types of space—physical, curricular, and ideological—the study revealed the extent to which tensions between a school library’s mission and other school objectives shape a library’s efficacy and acceptance.
