alyssa_m92: New Library Science Student

Hello. I am a new library science student, and I'm having trouble deciding which direction I want to go in the library science field. I begin grad school in August, and am looking into researching some of my options. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? Thank you!

How do you feel about kids? In my city in the last year, our local public library hired zero external librarians, our 3 combined universities hired one, our community college only hired PT, and our local school district hired seven! A neighboring district also hired five! I say, go where the jobs are.

In my program, if you wanted to do the school library media track, you had to declare it your first semester and all your courses had to be selected from a state-approved group. So if it's something you'd be even vaguely interested in, you could always try it for a semester or two and see how you like it! :)
