Free! How to Run a Librarian in Training Program for Children

August 19, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT


Johnson City (Tennessee) Public Library’s Librarian-in-Training program is a 15-week program for children ages nine to twelve that provides an overview of library occupations and services. Children spend two hours in each department of the library, as well as attend a board meeting, over the fifteen sessions, to see how all of the parts contribute to the whole. 

In this interactive and informative program, learn how to adapt this program for your library, and share your knowledge and enthusiasm with potential future librarians. 

Specifically, attendees will learn to: 

  • Adapt the basic components of the Librarian-in-Training program to fit your individual library’s needs
  • Promote the program within your own organization and gather staff buy-in for participation
  • Formulate an outreach plan to target specific interested children
