The Community of the Book: A Directory of Organizations and Programs. Third Edition.
Williams, Maurvene D., Comp.; Cole, John Y., Ed.
This directory describes organizations and programs that promote books and reading, administer literacy projects, and encourage the study of books, and whose purposes and interests frequently overlap with those of the Center for the Book of the Library of Congress. Although international organizations are included, the focus is on institutions in the United States. Collaborative efforts and partnerships receive special attention. The 109 organizations are arranged alphabetically. Each entry contains a basic block of information about the organization, including address and online access information, as well as narrative sections titled: (1) What/For Whom; (2) Examples (of programs); (3) Publications; and (4) Sources of Support. Some additional resources that do not fit the main list are attached, and an index allows greater subject access. (SLD)
