Library assistants need strong English, history, speech, and even foreign language skills, so while in high school concentrate on the humanities. If you are interested in working in a special library such as a medical library, take classes in that specialty. Learning how to use a computer and conduct basic research in a library is essential. Developing these skills will not only aid in your future library work, but will also help you in college and in any other career options you might pursue.
