>Margaret Tice has an article in the new SLJ, querying what the de-funding of supervisory youth services positions might mean for children’s librarianship. If you missed them, take a look at Barbara Bader’s acute portraits of two of the greats from NYPL: Anne Carroll Moore and Augusta Baker. In the latter, BB also has a good observation for those who think libraries can do without children’s coordinators: “library work with children loses a spokesperson on the inside, and a representative to the outside: politically nullifying its two bases of support. Who’s to say, then, what’s good for children?”
