New York State Library, Albany.
Attended by representatives from the New York State Education Department, the Library Extension Division, library systems in New York State, and other relevant agencies, this conference was held to gain better understanding of the various antipoverty programs and to encourage cooperative planning and better use of available resources, with emphasis placed on the role of the public library. Panel discussions were devoted to Federal, State and local agency relationships in antipoverty programs, with consideration given to objectives and policies relating to children's, young adult, and adult needs. Separate speeches cover the War on Poverty in general and education's role in antipoverty programs. Appendixes include an annotated list of films for poverty programs, an annotated bibliography of 47 items on intercultural relations, and a list of New York State Community Action Programs funded as of April 1, 1966.
