Rural Library Services to Disadvantaged Youth.
Kentucky State Dept. of Libraries, Frankfort.
Guidelines presented for public librarians to follow in their attempts to reach the rural disadvantaged youth are designed (1) to aid the youth in discerning and setting attainable goals, (2) to stimulate the naturally intelligent youth to use library facilities in furthering his education, and (3) to nurture general awareness and to enlarge the world of the rural young adult. There are 29 specific programs or techniques described to aid the librarian in helping the disadvantaged youth to reach the foregoing objectives. Also included in the document are excerpts from letters written by various library personnel which provide information on library programs and on problems and solutions. (BD)
