Women of the Plains and Mountains: Programs for Public Libraries.
Nesmith, Lorraine, Comp.
Rural librarians in Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma are involved in a 1-year project designed to assist them in implementing humanities programming for adults; "Women 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 heritage of the women of the plains and mountains, and provides 5 suggested program formats. Resource people from Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma are listed, as well as state and national resources. A bibliography of women of the plains and mountains lists 95 references published between 1869 and 1982, with most published in the 1960s and 1970s. Seventeen articles are cited from popular magazines. A list of miscellaneous resources precedes a 25-page adaptation of "Planning Library Programs" by Peggy O'Donnell and Patsy Reed. (BRR)
