Final Report to the Four Corners Regional Commission on Mobile Library Services to Navajo, Apache, and Coconino -- 1971/72.
Lawrence, Sheldon L.
Objective of the Four Corners Mobile Library Project, which has been in operation for over 2 years, is to adequately and effectively meet the informational needs of the area. During 1971-72, the Four Corners Bookmobile service on the Navajo and Hopi Reservations was expanded to include an additional bookmobile and 3 additional staff members to serve the increased informational and recreational reading interests of those living in the project's area. The 2 bookmobiles in operation were able to provide more adequate service in the form of more frequent visits, better staffing, and a resulting higher quality of service. With the added staff, facilities, and equipment, it was possible to provide a wider variety of services to the area's residents. This was evident with the rising number of users and the increasing rate of special requests for materials not on the bookmobiles. Efforts were made to reach more non-users in order to meet the project's objective. This 1971-72 final report discusses the project's physical facilities, staff activities, collections, circulation, special programs, communications, public relations and publicity, consultant services, and fiscal information. Publicity samples, circulation statistics, fiscal report and inventory, and samples of bookmobile schedules are given in the appendices. (NQ)
