Cumberland County--The Community and Its Libraries.
Sherling, Andrew M.
Conducted as a step toward developing a philosophy of community-wide services to bring the county's citizens and their libraries closer together, this community analysis is divided into two parts, the first focusing on the community, and the second on the public library system. The first section covers the following topics: locale and environment, history, demography and housing characteristics, transportation, communication facilities, government, human service agencies, health care, education, the economy, organizations, religion, leisure activities, and societal attitudes. The second section deals with library organization and operation, library use studies, community analysis implications, and recommendations. Provided are 48 tables, 39 graphs, 14 maps, eight appendices, and a bibliography for each major section. (RBF)
