Literature of the Plains and Mountains: Programs for Public Libraries.
Nesmith, Lorraine, Comp.
A 1-year project in Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma is designed to assist rural librarians in implementing humanities programming for adults; "Literature of the Plains and Mountains" is one of three packets compiled for the project. The packet is designed to provide a step-by-step guide for the librarian with little or no experience in adult programming. Following a list of the 30 participating libraries, the packet includes an overview of the literature of the plains and mountains and provides 4 suggested program formats. Resource people from Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma are listed, as well as state and national resources. A bibliography of the literature of the plains and mountains lists 55 references for Colorado, 43 for Kansas, 49 for Oklahoma, and 46 works about the West. A filmography lists 22 films (16mm) and other film information. A list of miscellaneous resources precedes a 25-page adaptation of "Planning Library Programs" by Peggy O'Donnell and Patsy Reed. (BRR)
