Library Technicians

High School

If you are considering a career as a library technician, you should take a college preparatory course load. Classes in English, history, literature, foreign languages, computer science, and mathematics are crucial to giving you a strong background in the skills you will need as a library technician. Strong verbal and writing skills are especially important, so take all the classes you can to help you develop facility in speaking and writing. Any special knowledge of a particular subject matter can also be beneficial. For instance, if you have a strong interest in geography, you may want to consider pursuing a technical assistant position in a map room of a library.
