Libraries Respond to the Needs of Young Children.
Phinazee, Annette Lewis
This paper describes the Early Childhood Library Specialist Program developed by the School of Library Science at North Carolina Central University, an area of concentration within the Masters of Library Science degree program intended to develop specialists in this area who have the ability to (1) establish rapport with children and their parents, (2) demonstrate knowledge of a diversity of learning resources appropriate for young children, (3) employ effective methods in introducing children to the use of media for learning and recreation, and (4) perform effectively in a leadership role in the learning programs for a variety of community agencies. The role of the librarian in providing services to preschool children is also discussed. (FM)
