A Demonstration of the Interrelating of Library and Basic Education Services for Disadvantaged Adults. Final Report, Richland County School District Number One.
Two agencies of the Columbia, South Carolina community, the Richland County Public Library and the Adult Education office of Richland County School District One, merged their efforts to better serve clients and potential clients of the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program of District One in 1972-73 with the support of a grant channeled through Morehead State University, Morehead, Kentucky. The grant was made so that the project could show how undereducated adults could become greater users of library facilities. Specific objectives included the coordination of library services during ABE class time; needs assessment of ABE students; coordination of ongoing library and ABE services at the two state mental hospitals, recruitment of undereducated adults to ABE and to public library services and the establishment of the library habit in ABE students. Appended are case studies, circulation records, plans for library service, a list of books checked out, tabulation of student interest, and responses of ABE teachers to a questionnaire. (Author/CH)
