Colorado Market Research Services, Inc., Denver.
As part of a larger state survey of public attitudes toward libraries in Colorado, conducted in 1973, this report presents data gathered from interviews with a sample of Colorado adults who are not currently enrolled in any program of formal education. The initial section of this report deals with how often, how, and why nonstudents use all types of libraries. The next section concerns adult nonstudents' evaluations of local libraries available to them. Section 3 centers on specific public library services, including a number of proposed services, which are examined for perceptions of availability, use, or potential usefulness to these adults. The following section deals with attitudes toward libraries in general, including likes and dislikes. The final section reports findings on types of information which nonstudent Coloradans feel are useful or desirable to have available, as well as their tendency to use a library for any of their information needs on a particular topic.
