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.
