Service for the 70's: A Work-Study Conference on Public Library Services to Youth in Florida.
Florida State Library, Tallahassee.
The invitational conference sought to create an atmosphere in which public library administrators and youth services librarians might freely discuss and reach consensus regarding a definition of the appropriate role of Florida public libraries in service to youth in the decade ahead, appropriate, realistic objectives for public libraries' youth service programs, and a definition of the appropriate place within the library's administrative structure into which service to youth should fit. Several papers on problems of library service to youth were presented, and the conferees then met in small work groups for further discussion. The needs of youth and the objectives of library services to youth were outlined. Responses to an evaluation questionnaire, which was sent to each participant two weeks after the conference, are included, along with a listing of the participants. (AB)
