Fasick, A.M. & Holt, L.E. ( 2008).  Managing children's services in the public library (3rd ed.).  Westport, CT: Libraries Unlimited.
Everything children's librarians need to know about running a department in the public library! Section I deals with planning services in the context of a community. Section II covers maintaining a productive work environment, recruiting and retaining staff, communicating with colleagues, annual reports, budgeting and fundraising, planning facilities, and keeping the department safe and secure. Section III focuses on collection development, electronic resources, intellectual freedom, and reaching out to the community through programs and special events, working with other youth service organizations, and marketing children's services. Section IV suggests ways in which children's librarians can participate in the larger professional community of librarians. (Book Description)
Miller, D.P. (2008).  Crash course in teen services.  Westport, CT: Libraries Unlimited.
Drawing on her experience as a librarian in both schools and public libraries, Miller provides sound guidance....[P]rovides quick and useful information to new librarians and staff working with teens, and it is especially helpful to those working in smaller public libraries, where resources and funding is often limited. The book may also be useful for providing an administrator with a quick overview of the requirements and benefits of a teen program. The down-to-earth manner and sensible approach make this book widely accessible. (VOYA June 2008)
