An Evaluation Report on the Demonstration Library Set Up at the Children's Unit School of Connecticut Valley Hospital.
Well, Maureen D.
Connecticut Valley Hospital (CVH) is a state mental institution whose Children's Unit provides residential care and treatment, as well as educational and recreational programs for approximately 120 children suffering from severe emotional disorders. In January, 1974, a project was initiated to improve the library service being provided to these children. The physical facilities were improved, new high in interest/low vocabulary books purchased, and, for the first time, audiovisual hard and software were acquired. A library graduate student was hired to run the library two days per week. It was the feeling of the personnel involved that the library improvement project was a success--a great help to the children, teachers, and staff at CVH. Appendixes to this report contain supportive letters, periodical articles on the project, a table of program costs, and a listing of materials purchased for the library. (SL)
