Velva Public and School Library Study.
Pelton, Raymond
The purpose of this study was to survey the adult reading and information needs in the Velva, North Dakota community. The study was to determine whether a community information and reading center is needed, and if so, could the school media center be augmented with suitable materials and staff to meet the expressed and latent needs of the community. The State Library Commission desired to explore the possibility of the school media center extending its services to the community because of a growing concern by government officials and some members of the general public about the alleged duplication of library materials and services and for the need to improve library services at a level that the community would be willing to pay for through their taxes. Based upon this Velva study, it appears that the school media center approach is worth further study in other communities in the state. From experience elsewhere in the state, success is less likely to be achieved on these projects if there is already an independent public library in that community. (Author/SJ)
