Una risposta a “Teen Services Librarian- Canton, Michigan – United States

  1. I was wondering if your part-time Teen Librarian position was filled? I am presently a certified full time School Librarian K-5. I have been in this position the last 20 years. Prior to this time, I was a Children’s Librarian for Brooklyn Public Library, NY and an Assistant Branch Librarian/Children’s Librarian at Toledo-Lucas Public Library, Ohio. I have a MLS from Pratt Institute, NYC.

    As we all know, many of Michigan Schools are having serious financial problems and cutting back drastically. I have always planned on working part-time in the Public Library sector when I retired.

    Thank you for your time.
