Find It All at the Library! An Introduction to the Library for Children. [Videotape.]
American Library Association Video/Library Video Network, Towson, MD.
This videotape provides an overview of the materials and services available in a typical library. Designed to interest elementary and middle school children in exploring the library, the video features a young host who tells children about the Dewey Decimal system and goes behind the scenes to see how a library works. The library does not only have books; it also has compact disks, magazines, computer software, videos, and may have online access to the Internet. Library services include interesting programs, computers to help with homework, and people trained to answer any question imaginable. This video can be used in the classroom, in the library, or at home. (Author/SWC)
