Public library vs. school libraryKaty ClevengerThe Farmington School District shares a commitment with the community to provide a secure environment of educational excellence for every student by utilizing a diverse, challenging curriculum. The Library Media program supports this mission by teaching students to gain and use information effectively and todevelop intolifelong readers. (E. Fletcher)The Farmington Public Library is your Gateway to Knowledge (A. Bell).

She just got two Nooks and is hoping to get more by the end of the year (E. Fletcher).

The population that is served at the Farmington Public Library is anyone that wants to come in and use the libraries services (A. Bell). Your library card is free as long as you live in Washington CountyPopulation ServedLedbetter IntermediateFarmington PublicAt the Ledbetter Intermediate library Mrs. Fletcher is the only Librarian and she has no aids. She sees all classes once a week and she has free flow when she does not have a class.There are three librarians who work in the Farmington Public Library. Audra Bell is the Library Director and the other women report to Audra Bell. (A. Bell).

Organizational StructureLedbetter IntermediateFarmington PublicShe is working on getting her masters degree in Library Science. She will be finished at the end of the summer. She has to keep up with all of her educational professional development (60 hours) to keep her license (E. Fletcher).

The Librarians at the Farmington Public Library must have an MLS or MLIS from an ALA accredited university to fill the position at the library.

Professional TrainingLedbetter IntermediateFarmington PublicDiversityThey share in the same kind of DiversityDiversity means all the differences among the patrons. This could include but not limited to race, color, skills, age, religion, nationality, knowledge, or interest. To help with all the diversity in the community population the library separates the materials into sections based on age and then by interest. For example the childrens section is divided into easy, fiction, and non-fiction. This help people find exactly what they are looking for easily so they do not get frustrated and give up.

I was surprised to find out that she did not have a aid to come in and help her at all during the day.With the Fayetteville Public Library being right down the road I am glad that people are giving our small community library enough business that they need more space.
