An Evaluation of State Supported Library Programs for the Disadvantaged in Illinois.
Social, Educational Research and Development, Inc., Silver Spring Md.
Presented in this report is an extensive evaluation of three library projects located in Chicago, Peoria, and the suburban Chicago area. All the projects reviewed have strong and weak points. Generally, the strong elements are a vigorous commitment to the people served, emphasis on inexpensive paperback books and collections of books stressing black heritage and culture. The major weaknesses of the projects are the lack of effective program operating data, a lack of audiovisual equipment and materials, and failure of the projects to conduct extensive outreach in their target areas.
