Contrary to popular belief, librarians do more than silence people. They help match patrons to books that they will love, provide additional services like computer education, and organize programming for the library. Youth services librarians have an especially important job because they help foster a love of reading among young people.
Youth services librarians can work with very young children just entering the wonderful world of books, teenagers, and every child in-between. They help maintain the library's collections with an eye towards what kids are interested in particularly. They also help lead fun events to get youth excited about the library, such as partnering with local schools or hosting storytime.
Many librarians think that youth services librarians have the best job in the library since they get to have fun with children all day. However, the job is not all fun and games. Youth services librarians do a lot of work and need to put in a lot of effort before getting to their position. In fact, many have master's degrees in library science.
