Special Features - Children and Libraries
The Last Word
The Last Word is an end page feature that runs in each issue and highlights brief, light, or humorous essays from children's librarians, such as: a humorous story about a library experience; a short trivia quiz or puzzle about children's literature; a brief, creatively-written insight on library service, children's literature, or programming; a very short question-and-answer interview with a popular author; a funny story about what kids are overheard saying in libraries. The Last Word will be a place for children’s librarians to share these stories and get their name in print. Please send your ideas or finished stories to the editor.
Contributions for The Last Word should be between 500-750 words, double-spaced. Please submit to Editor Sharon Korbeck Verbeten for consideration.
