Philosophy of Public Library Children's Services.
Hektoen, Faith H.
This paper discusses Connecticut's need for a philosophy of public library services to children which will encompass a large intellectual scope and will clearly articulate the library's objectives and priorities for the community being served. It addresses the needs of Connecticut's children, reading programs for two- and three-year-olds, program planning, the needs of children's librarians, and problem areas in providing children's library services. A review of the available literature on the philosophy of children's services is appended, and the bibliography lists 30 citations to recent periodical articles as well as 15 references to other relevant publications.
