All of the information about library collections and resources etc. makes me reflect on my own experience in school libraries. I don't think I went too far from the fiction section of my Primary School library after I discovered Laura Ingalls-Wilder. I thought our library teacher was amazing. Looking back I think she was very hip in the '70's with the flowing clothes and long hair. I loved the library cards. And when you reached year 5 you had access to 2 books at a time as well as being able to help the teacher out! Tech school provided a wider range of reading material that introduced a whole new world including Judy Blume. Non-fiction information was gathered from the World Books. Computer searches were non-existent.
