Walter, Virginia A.
Inspired by a new generation of librarians and children, Walter reconsiders the legacy passed on by the matriarchs of children's services and examines more recent trends and challenges growing out of changes in educational philosophy and information technology. This thoroughly researched book includes the current issues and trends of: (1) Outcome-based planning; (2) Early literacy; (3) Homework centers in libraries; and (4) Children's spaces. With extensive experience in children's services as well as library instruction issues, Walter brings readers vital information on the current state of library services to children. Appendices and an index is included.
