The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has the distinction of being the first training center for Children’s Librarians in the US. The program later moved to the University of Pittsburgh (just up the street!) but I like to think that we continue the tradition today. Our department participates in mentoring library school students and helping them develop their skills in librarianship. There’s nothing like on the job training from experienced professionals! (a personal thank you from me to Miss Kathy and Miss Laurel who mentored me when I was an intern here!)
Welcome Kelly and Amy!
