Overview

With more than one-third of library users under the age of 12, it may be said that children's services drive public libraries. Still, many administrators don't fully appreciate how integral these services are to their institutions.

Michael Sullivan, best-selling author of Connecting Boys with Books (ALA Editions, 2003), conducts a friendly tour in this comprehensive reference, covering both innovative and standard practices in children's services. From collection development and programming to homework support, reference, and readers' advisory to promoting and budgeting, children's services parallel other library services and are no less important.

Part of ALA's Fundamentals Series, this essential overview provides hands-on, proven strategies for those on the front lines, while addressing questions critical to the long-term success of children's library services, including the importance of children's services in the library, along with the hot issues and cutting-edge trends.

Those who want to become children's librarians, experienced and new children's librarians, and library administrators and trustees alike will find that this new bible of children's services sets the record straight: Children's services are the heart of the library.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
This volume is "intended to be a guide for the new or future children's librarian." As such, it reads like a textbook and covers the gamut of topics that you would expect to find in such a text-collection development (purposes, selection and acquisition, organizing, cataloging, evaluation, deselection); services (after-school, reference, readers' advisory, the Internet); programming (storyhours, book-discussion groups, booktalking, summer reading clubs, family programs, family literacy); and management, administration, and leadership (budget, finance, planning, policy and procedures, public relations, promotion, marketing, professional development). Sullivan also discusses the role of children's services and the principles of children's librarianship. Topics are not covered in great depth but the content does touch on the essential elements. Insets within the chapters discuss issues such as librarian shortages and pay equity, service to boys, children and privacy, and library programs and copyright. Other insets give suggested titles for storyhours, a sample press release, and Web resources. While the book is probably redundant for practicing children's librarians, it is well suited for novices or as a guide for library directors who are not sure of the place of children's services in the public library.-Janet Hilbun, Texas Woman's University, Denton Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
