Library Services and Construction Amendments of 1970. Hearing Before the Select Subcommittee on Education...on H.R. 16365 and S. 3318, Bills to Extend, Consolidate and Improve Programs Under the Library Services and Construction Act.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
The Bills seek to lessen the administrative burden upon the States through reduction of the number of State plans, which must be submitted and approved annually, from five to one and to afford the States greater discretion in allocating funds to meet specific State needs by combining, within a single authorization, the programs formerly authorized by titles I, II, III and IV of the Library Services and Construction Act. Provision is to be made for special programs to meet the needs of disadvantaged persons, in both urban and rural areas, for library services and for strengthening the capacity of State library administrative agencies for meeting the needs of all the people of the States and in promoting interlibrary cooperation. The administration of public libraries, the selection of personnel and library books and materials shall be reserved to the States and their local subdivisions. (AB)
