With pre-orders in the millions for J.K. Rowling's seventh and final Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," fans everywhere are trying to be the first to get their hands on the book.

    Zach: To be a "Librarian" you must have a Master of Library and Information Science degree (MLIS) before you claim the title of "Librarian". You are correct in your description of what is available for teens at a public library! Libraries must evolve to meet the changes of the community, and this includes electronic and digital forms of information like DVDs, CD-Roms, E-Books, video games, wikis, blogs, rss feeds, etc. Game tournaments & online book clubs are some examples of the new stuff available at your local library!

    im sorry sir but i think your mistaken. although yes i am a librarian myself, i am also only 15 and i love my job. However, this point is stated because of the fact the reason i am a librarian is because after school for a couple of days a week i noticed a bunch (about 20 or so) of kids would go to the library and play magic cards or read, or jsut hang out and our library is very reasponsive to it. infact we have a
