Montana State Library Long-Range Program for Library Development.
Montana State Library, Helena.
Proposed activities to strengthen public library service for the people of Montana during the period covered by this plan are: (1) Efforts will be continued to both add to the number of counties participating in the public library federations, and to strengthen the resources and services of these federations; (2) Alternative and innovative means of delivery of library and information service to people (e.g., the possibility of a books-by-mail program for sparsely populated areas) will be examined and where possible tried; (3) Increased emphasis will be placed on programs which will broaden the social base of library users, identify those segments of the population which do not take advantage of library services, and provide means for serving those persons; (4) Increased emphasis will be placed on programs of in-service and continuing education for public library personnel, and for library board members; (5) The improvement of library service for persons in local public and private institutions will be emphasized; and (6) Programs which will improve communication between libraries and the general public will be emphasized. (Other State Plans are: LI003985 through 003993, LI003995 through 004004, LI004027 through 004035, LI004038 through 004046, LI004089-004090, and LI004092 through 004094). (Author/NH)
