Four articles provide suggestions for public librarians interested in implementing library service at local institutions. Ways of locating local institutions that need library service are described. Studying the needs of the institution and formulating alternative plans for service which can be presented to the institution's director are suggested as the first step in the implementation of service. Ideas are presented on the types of juvenile and adult literature and multimedia materials which have been found effective with various groups: the emotionally disturbed, the mentally handicapped, and prison inmates. Various program formats are suggested by which library services can be integrated into the total institutional community and can cover the information needs and interests of each resident of the institution, regardless of reading level.
