A Five Year Plan; Pennsylvania Library Development, 1971-1976.
Pennsylvania State Library, Harrisburg.
The objective of Pennsylvania's State Plan for use of Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) funds is continued development of a statewide system of libraries so that good quality, free, convenient, public library service will be available to every resident of the state. The system consists of: (1) local libraries or bookmobile stops so located that library services will be available to every resident of the state within fifteen or twenty minutes travel of his residence, (2) district library center services which meet the specialized resources and staff needs of each resident within approximately one hour of his residence; and (3) regional library resource center service for the research needs of each resident within a day's round trip of his residence. Selection of methods for establishing priorities, indication of present and future needs and the establishment of criteria for allocation of funds within the priorities established are decisions made within this plan. Part IV and V which follow the "five Year Plan" contain the substantiating material upon which the plan was developed. (Other State Plans are: LI 003 985 through LI 003 989 and LI 003 991 through LI 003 993.) (Author/NH)
