Children's Librarians

High School

A full academic course load-including history, math, English, speech, foreign languages, and computer science-is your best preparation for a career as a children's librarian. Familiarity with the Dewey Decimal System is important-you should be able to navigate your way around a library. Also, join clubs or find activities that will give you plenty of experience playing and working with children. Some examples include taking high school child development courses, babysitting neighborhood children, or volunteering at a summer camp or after school program for kids.
