Final Report of the Activities and Recommendations Made Under Title III, ESEA P. L. 89-10 Planning Grant for Model Saturated School Library.
Deer School District 21, AR.
A Planning Grant, Funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Act, was awarded to Deer School in Newton County, Arkansas, for the purpose of making a study to determine the specific methods and know-how needed to establish a community school library in a rural area to operate as a materials center, study laboratory, and a reading center. This library was set up as a demonstration center for small, rural schools throughout the nation. Included in the surveys conducted were: (1) an inventory of present instructional materials in Deer School Library and in 4 school districts in the county; (2) an investigation to determine what would be an adequate collection of instructional materials to meet needs of Deer School's educational programs; (3) an evaluation of Deer School Library's present library services, and (4) a comparative table of course offerings in the county's high schools, grades 7-12. Among the conclusions drawn from first-hand investigations and observations of other schools throughout the U. S. were (1) not all schools visited were providing exemplary library service; (2) the personality of the librarian and staff appeared to be more important than the materials available, and (3) libraries were over-crowded, and, in most instances, additional space was being planned. The concept of a Saturated School Library was found to be one which provided guidance to a multi-media program of instruction which pervades all activities within the educational program. The services and materials of the Model Saturated School Library are discussed. (CM)
