A Goal Directed Future; Owensboro - Daviess County Public Library.
Kentucky State Dept. of Libraries, Frankfort.
The overall view of the library and its services show that within the "severe" limits of its resources, the library is doing well in its basic services. The call for "excellence of basic services" reflected in the objectives requires continued service improvement and a reorganization of the staff to heighten public services. Too much of the library's recent growth has gone into its records and procedures. The library's basic resources of income, collections, and staff must be increased in the future. The per capita annual support should be doubled to $3.00 per capita in today's money with the county increasing its proportion of support. Eventually, the library should be placed on the stronger footing of a library taxing district. Until a higher level of support is attained, new programs and services must be limited to improving the basic collection, staff, and reference services. (Author/MM)
