Support the Librarians in your life

National Library Week is April 12-18, 2009, which ironically is Spring break for most schools. Becoming a librarian takes quite a bit of schooling. To work in most public libraries and private jobs you’ll need to have earned a Masters in Library Science. To work as a School Library Media Specialist, a person needs their Masters in Library Media, then go through an unpaid internship which they will then apply for certification (in Connecticut). Your librarian worked hard to be able to help you.

Craig has been working as a library media specialist for 4 years. He does everything from helping kids pick out books to read to showing them how to use computers for research and furthering their knowledge.

I found this video earlier this week on teacherlibrarian.ning.com. Craig and I watched it couldn’t stop laughing. You may never look at your librarian the same again.
