Let’s see how fast I can learn the layout of the children's room, NY Times booklist and the Holt List of Children's Literature...........
Place words of post interview encouragement and virtual drinks (just not in front of the children) here.

Wizard of Oz is good.
Peter Pan is better.

Harry Potter is good.
His Dark Materials is better.

Andy Crane is good.
Philip Schofield is better.

You get the idea.

And major good luck, good vibes, happy thoughts.

Good luck, and I hope it's helpful to suggest that, in addition to familiarity with bibliographic sources, they're surely looking for a specific qualities in your personality. Which is a good thing, right?

One should hope! Anyway, from this LA over here, good luck!

Interview went smoothly. Mostly we talked about what I thought were the issues that could be improved in my department I work in now. The department head said that she thought my only weakness was never having gone to schools to solict library patrons. They're supposed to narrow it down from 14 to 4 canidates and do a second interview next week. Where's my 211 40....

It may be late for this, but maybe these are helpful (or search for others) ....

Working with Young Patrons
Description: Here is a set of programs and projects

You're probably much better in tune with where to find materials like this, but this was my sneaky way of promoting the website I've been working on for the past year.

Good luck, yah.
