Henry County and the Public Library: Report of a Self-Study by the Blue Ridge Regional Library.
Ragsdale, Betty M.; And Others
An in-depth examination of Henry County and the Blue Ridge Regional Library in Virginia was conducted to assess the effectiveness, needs, and objectives of the library. Included are a brief history of Henry County, its physical, social, and economic characteristics and projections, and an evaluation of district census data. A detailed description of the library's history, facilities, services, financial resources, and collections is also presented, followed by conclusions and recommendations. These include more emphasis on public relations with community organizations; an increased use of media for senior citizens of low educational achievement; increased bookmobile service; continual reassessment of acquisitions policy to achieve balance in the collection according to educational and economic background of the population; and the need for a larger headquarters facility. Numerous maps, charts, and tables are integrated throughout the report. (Author/MBR)
