Five-Year Plan for Development of Library Services in Salt Lake County, 1973-1977.
A five-year plan for the Salt Lake County Library System is presented to meet the complex needs of patrons and to comply with American Library Association's "Minimum Standards for Public Library Systems" (1966). A new main library building is planned to house the main collection, and enlarged nonprint collection, and audiovisual and conference facilities. A general building design for future branches shows them compact and economical. Drive-in stations, parked at shopping centers, would house small collections; older mobile units would be converted into permanent branches; and minibookmobiles would service those without transportation, institutionalized patrons, and young children. Minilibraries, deposit collections, and a Mail-A-Book Service would extend the reach of the library into outlying areas. To provide adequate staffing additional paraprofessionals would be hired. Top priority is given to broadening the library collection. New financing for the library system is to be provided by an increase in the library mill levy. (KC)
