Providing guidelines for designing collections and services that best serve 21st-century needs in school and public libraries, this book helps librarians to understand today's children and the ways they interact with information and recreational materials.

Managing Children's Services in Libraries, Fourth Edition is designed to give students and new library workers the skills they need to succeed as well as get experienced librarians up to speed on the new developments in technology, publishing, and education. The book takes a broad view of all aspects of library work with children, addressing the dramatic and ongoing changes in school and pubic libraries.

This latest edition of a popular, proven resource focuses on practical ways to organize library services to children and the adults who care for them, and on expanding services from the building level to the greater community. Sections focus specifically on collections, planning services, managing personnel and budgets, and working with other community agencies. The book is written to serve as a textbook for courses in services to children and young adults, and is appropriate for short workshops and in-service training for library staff. Administrators and department heads will find it a useful tool for designing and updating library services.
