B.C. Public Library Involvement in Literacy Programs.
Houle, Laura
BCLA Reporter, v34 n3 p23-25 May 1990
This report presents the methodology and results of a survey which determined the current level of involvement in literacy-related services of 50 public libraries in British Columbia. The primary areas addressed by the survey are: (1) the degree of "formal involvement" in literacy-related activities; (2) most common literacy activities; (3) kinds of literacy materials provided; (4) sponsorship of library learning centers; (5) publicity activities; (6) most important literacy services; (7) library membership in a literacy coalition; and (8) future plans for literacy involvement. It is noted that libraries that have formed or joined literacy coalitions tend to have a higher level of involvement in literacy activities than those that have not. (6 references) (MAB)
