Final Report on Reading Is Fun-Damental Program Phase II.
Reid, Careth B.
The Friends of the San Francisco Public Library have sponsored a Reading is Fun-Damental (RIF) program for the children and teenagers of San Francisco. Their January and June 1973 reports describe RIF activities in the Western Addition, a primarily black area. The RIF program has: distributed books and placed collections in schools and public agencies; held book fairs; taken children to book warehouses to select their own books; and assisted schools and agencies in writing proposals for RIF programs. In addition to improving reading skills and interest, the RIF program's aims are to encourage more involvement of the community in the project and to enhance relationships between the community and the libraries.
