Abstract:This has been a very worthwhile institute, and it is now my task to summarize what has been said here. For a number of years I was a public librarian but never a children's librarian; I am greatly interested in children's work, however, and over the years have known a number of children's librarians reasonably well. I do not claim any special knowledge or insights into this field, and if I happen to say anything which is particularly apt or strikes home, it is probably by chance and not design. What I say here constitutes my views of what I think I heard and sometimes what I listened for and did not hear. That is to say, this is not an objective or factual summary of what each speaker said but rather my own perceptions of some of the main themes which were developed here. When I speak of books, I mean to include under that term all media.
