Title: Library Facilities For Children
Author(s): Bush, Margaret
Subject(s): Children’s libraries
Abstract: How do you like your facilities? What would you like to change? What other things do you wish you had?" If these questions were asked of children's librarians and media specialists, chances are that a few would be wholeheartedly enthusiastic about their working space and its various features. Many others would most likely voice reservations and produce a shopping list. In preparing this article, the author visited thirteen school libraries and media centers in Boston and children's departments in ten public libraries in eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Personal observation of the facilities and their use by children, coupled with friendly conversation with the people working in the various libraries, was a valuable and fascinating exercise which provided an enormous amount of information.
