Abstract
The paper discusses re-positioning library and information services to meet the teacher preparation needs for vision 20:20:20 in Nigeria. Vision 20:20:20 is a dream of Nigeria to be counted among the leading 20 national economy in the world by the year 2020. Education is a powerful tool for training manpower including teachers needed to actualize this dream. The paper reiterates the fact that library and information services as an essential educational support service, should be repositioned if the teacher preparation need for the vision is to be achieved. The roles of the library and information centers were highlighted in the paper. It was suggested that human capacity building and infrastructure development should be vigorously pursued in order to re-position the library and information centres for the challenge of teacher preparation for vision 20:20:20. The government, educational planners, stakeholders and philanthropists, it was recommended should give adequate recognition to library and information services
