Library Resources for Literacy: A Compilation of Information and Ideas.
Lampman, Sherry, Comp.; Leitzke, Nowell, Comp.
This compilation was put together to help librarians work for literacy in their communities more effectively. Information was gathered from tip sheets produced as part of the 1987-1990 Community Alliances for Literacy and Learning (CALL) project and from tip sheets that were part of the 1991 Library Resources for Literacy project. Additional information was synthesized from newsletters, other publications, and the input of participants in five Library Resources for Literacy workshops in 1991. Chapter 1, "Fostering Community-Wide Literacy," defines the many views of literacy that different approaches have used. "Librarians as Partners," Chapter 2, reviews the ways librarians can work with local literacy services, including participation on Literacy Action Councils. Chapter 3,"Thinking Literacy," provides statistics about literacy in the country and in Minnesota, emphasizing the importance of lifelong literacy efforts. In Chapter 4, "Minnesota Resources," 10 Minnesota agencies and resources for literacy are listed. Chapter 5, "Information Resources," lists 73 resources on adult literacy and adult basic education. Entitled "Fundraising," Chapter 6 covers fund raising efforts for literacy programs. (SLD)
