A Look at the Hillside Public Library, 1975.
Nassau Library System, Garden City, NY.
Situated in the Manor Oaks Elementary School, the Hillside Public Library (HPL) serves as a joint school and public library. At the request of its board of trustees, a comprehensive survey of HPL operations was conducted by the Nassau County Library System. This report presents the findings of this survey, which are to be used in future planning. Narrative descriptions and statistics are used to describe HPL's service area; collection; service programs to children, youth, and adults; physical plant; technical services; and public relations. Seventeen major recommendations resulted from this study including better public relations, improved internal procedures in the areas of book circulation and personnel practices, and a site study for new library quarters.
