Llandrillo Library‘s insight:

The internet has become an integral part of our lives; a source of information, a means of communication, a channel for sharing and a source of creativity.

However poor information literacy skills in a digital environment will leave children and young people susceptible in adult life to poor decision-making, and vulnerable to identity theft and other cybercrimes, or even radicalisation through hate sites.  CILIP believes that librarians and information professionals, especially school librarians and children’s specialists in public libraries, have a vital role in teaching children effective and safe use of the internet and pointing them to online resources. They also advise parents, carers and others with responsibilities for children. – See more at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/cilip/news/librarians-unique-role-teaching-skills-stay-safe-online#sthash.3eZmvhrx.dpuf
