Library Service in the Georgian Bay Region. Volume 2, The Barrie Public Library.
The Barrie 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 which were under the full control of the Barrie Public 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 present and future community; a comparison of Barrie's services with those of similar libraries; Barrie's collections, building, technical processes, staff, and operations; the service provided to special groups such as students, other institutions, and non-residents. Recommendations were made for each topic with the purpose of improving present operations and providing planning considerations for a future building expansion program. (Author/SL)
