Library Service in the Georgian Bay Region. Volume 1, The Owen Sound Public Library.
The Owen Sound Public Library was studied as part of a larger commission authorized by the Georgian Bay Regional Library Board. Analysis was restricted to local policies and procedures with recommendations designed to improve those services which are under the full control of the Owen Sound library board and staff. Aspects of library services provided on a cooperative basis: interlibrary loan, 16mm films, and reference resources were not included. Topics considered included: the library's community and its future trends; library service in the past and for the future; the library building and its planned expansion; comparison of present services to those of similar libraries; Owen Sound's collections and operations; and services to special groups such as students, other institutions, and non-residents. Recommendations were made with a view toward the impact which the library's building expansion program could have on future operations. (Author/SL)
