Early Childhood Library Specialist Program.
Young, Tommie
The Early Childhood Library Specialist Program of the School of Library Science, at North Carolina Central University, was organized in 1970 and has the following purposes: (1) to train students to become effective practitioners of early childhood library methods employed in introducing children to the uses of books and other media for the purposes of recreation and learning; (2) to provide an exemplary learning center for implementing early childhood methods and demonstrating practical application of classroom theories; (3) to acquaint the trainee with a diversity of learning media and resources appropriate for young children; (4) to involve library science students in actual learning programs in community agencies; and (5) to provide students with experience in work with parents in aiding them to become effective change-agents. The program idea grew out of the recognition of the need to train librarians to service the needs and demands of a segment of the population that heretofore has not been sufficiently considered as serious library clientele because of its non-reading ability.
