New Hyde Park Public Library; A Study.
Nassau Library System, Garden City, NY.
In the fall of 1974, the Nassau County Library System conducted a study of the New Hyde Park Public Library at the request of that library's directing board. Relevant documents and statistics were reviewed, building usage was studied, and the library staff and community organizations were questioned. The library was analyzed in terms of the population it served; the operations of its directing board; its standards, collections, service program, and physical plant; its technical processes; and its public relations program. Because jurisdictional confusion presently existing results in double taxation and duplicated library service for the community, the study recommended that the New Hyde Park Public Library be closed. However, an option for continued operations with improved service was also outlined. The appendixes to this report describe the study instruments and methods. (SL)
