Youth Services Librarians

February 9, 2010 · No Comments

…a well written and challenging piece in the Boston Globe by Lawrence Harmon on youth services in the library in Mattapan Massachusetts. Challenging in that it challenges the notion of if-you-build-it-they-will-read, and eloquently details what the Youth Services Librarian (and presumably Youth Services Librarians anywhere) actually have to do.  Challenges the notion that given the realities of staffing, they can function as working bibliographers.  It’s a lucid piece, and if you are interested in libraries, one to mull.
