Additional Information: This book provides a sound background to all aspects of library provision for 6-18 year olds. It is designed to support the strategic planning and delivery of library services and programmes at a local community level or in schools. The international case studies, scenarios and vignettes provide a snapshot of where we are now and considers how things are evolving. The book outlines a vision for children's library services in the next decade and carves out a strategy for engaging with the challenges and opportunities for children's librarians and policy makers in the Google environment. The book is organised into five parts: children's library services - policy, people and partnerships; technology and the digital natives - catching the latest wave; buildings, design and spaces - physical and virtual libraries; connecting and engaging - reaching your audience; and, evaluating practice and provision - planning for the future. This book is essential reading for all senior library practitioners; children's librarians and school librarians, subject co-ordinators, and managers in schools promoting the new curricula and extended school services in both primary and secondary. It will also be of value for all Postgraduate students on CILIP accredited Library and Information Management courses.
