Regional Public Library Service in Northeastern Ontario.
A review was conducted of the public library service in northeastern Ontario leading toward the revised policies and expanded regional service programs. Sociological and environmental problems of the area were analyzed and solutions were suggested. Easy access to all library resources would encourage cooperative and efficient public use. A concentration of French-language patrons should determine the selection of materials and staff. Bilingual and bicultural guidelines were devised for print and non-print materials to be made available for schools, private homes, and the elderly through the bookmobile. Extensive sections cover current and future audiovisual services and a suggested audiovisual budget. Statistical tables and a map of transportation facilities are included. (DS)
