Remember this post about Watertown Free Public Library and their new Early Literacy iPad program? I made friends with Emily Miranda, the head of Children’s Services there, and she’s agreed to share her experience developing this program with Little eLit! Welome aboard, Emily!
Emily earned her MLIS from Simmons College in 2009, and has worked in various Massachusetts public libraries, including Abington, Athol, Cambridge, and Watertown since 2001. She currently oversees the Children’s Department at the Watertown Free Public Library. Her job includes publicity and promotion, programming, outreach, reference services, and collection development. She gave her mother a Kindle last Christmas, and once worked in a special library that had a bathroom larger and nicer than any apartment she will ever live in.
