Analyzing Your Community: Basis for Building Library Service.
Based on the philosophy that the public library should be an integral part of the community it serves, a lively center of ideas and activities, and that it should know the community's people and groups thoroughly in order to understand its needs, this booklet has been prepared as an introduction for trustees, staff members, and lay leaders to the methods used in planning a program of library-community study and analysis. It outlines steps in the process of community study. Suggestions are given for recruiting citizen participation, outlining a procedure, organizing and interpreting study results, and making use of the findings. A list of selected references refers users to the more detailed material it would be necessary to consult as the study progresses. (Author/KKC)
