I am a Children's Services Librarian. Within libraries there are many areas in which one can choose to work, each calling for different qualifications or areas of expertise. I chose the field of children's services as most of my life I have woked with young people. It is possible to begin a career in Library without any formal qualification; and often qualifications are gained during employment. If you are keen to become a children's librarian please give me feedback as to whether I have included stuff of interest to you... if I haven't... feel free to make suggestions or post questions and I'll do my best to answer them :)
Inventing and implementing School Holiday Programmes can be great fun. The purpose of holiday programmes is to encourage children into the library and demonstrate that libraries are wonderful places to visit. The focus of the programme featured in the link below is 'writing' but any theme can be used.
