READiscover Kentucky: A Children's Services Manual.
Kentucky State Dept. for Libraries and Archives, Frankfort.
This manual for children's librarians was produced in conjunction with the Kentucky bicentennial and is intended to help find ways for children to experience the past; to stimulate ideas about book-related programs suited to individual communities and resources; and to suggest history-related activities. The manual is presented in seven sections: (1) publicity--ideas for promoting the READiscover Kentucky concept; (2) history--history program ideas and activities, many of which actually took place in Kentucky in former times; (3) folklife--(By Robert and Janet Gates), with ideas for children and adult programming; (4) environment--environmental history of Kentucky and activities for promoting recycling and nature conservation; (5) performing artists--description of individual Appalachian storytellers, entertainers, and musicians; (6) bibliography--a listing of approximately 200 books and materials that are associated with sections of the manual; and (7) reproduction masters--for use in promoting READiscover Kentucky and with activities about the state in general.
