Chapel Library Center, Annual Reports 1967, 1968.
The Chapel Library Center, in its third and fourth years of existence, had as its goal relevant service to the people of its neighborhood who represent a wide range of economic, ethnic and educational backgrounds. These reports describe activities, programs, book collections, art exhibits, circulation, and staffing of the Center. Conclusions about the success of the Center include: (1) Innovation and flexibility are important aspects of Center activities and programs. (2) Increased coordination of programs, activities, floor work, and displays has led to increased recognition on the part of patrons of the total function of the library center. (3) The Center has had little success in becoming a center of community action. (4) Good library service, though difficult to evaluate in specific terms, is even more important than good programs and activities. (5) The need for planned in-service training tailored to the new type of library service offered becomes more apparent to the staff each year, (6) The Center's informal and friendly atmosphere contributed to the success it has had.
