More of a "Beginner's Survival Guide"

Don't get me wrong - Ms. Bannister has done a laudable job with this "instructional manual." The only point I feel compelled to make is this "survival guide" is "97%" better suited for a first year school librarian. After a full year "on the job", most of her book's contents are researched and dealt with - by necessity. Read this book the summer before starting as a first year school librarian or after being away from the profession for a few years.

The Bible for New Elementary Librarians, even as Para-profes

This book, which I discovered in a catalog from World Almanac, I believe, was a very useful asset in my two years of learning experience as an emerging librarian. I found information which was verified in my graduate school coursework to gain my Masters' Degree in Library Science. Later, I found many recommendations and commendations for this volume. I will continue to return to this book for resources and ideas and good basic aids to the librarian in an elementary school. Additionally, their are great ideas that can translate to middle school and high school librarians and their many, multi-tasking roles!


That's what this book does. It helps very much.It has forms, charts, letters, and patterns tohelp you. Topics such as physical organizationof the library, how to buildsupport for your programs, discipline,storytimes, and booktalks are just afew of the many subjects covered in this book.It goes beyond what you learn in school and it isall in this one handy volume.

Survival Guide

This book truely is a survival guide! As a new media specialist I was basically clueless about how to get started. This book offers suggestions for everything a media specialist has to deal within an elementary school. It offers everything from positioning furnisher, sample activities/lesson plans, reproducible worksheets and letters, etc. This book is easy to read and understand. I would recommend it to all new media specialist or veterans looking for new ideas.
