New to the Children’s Library

Regardless of whether your first library job is in a public library or a school, your first few weeks will bring new opportunities and challenges that no one ever told you about in library school.  We learned the hard way. We’ll tell you about it, so that you don’t have to. Join us as we retrace our learning curve.
