Public Libraries in the NODA Area.
Northern Oklahoma Development Association, Enid.
To provide a planning tool for library improvement, the staff of the Northern Oklahoma Development Association (NODA) conducted a survey of the public libraries in its area. NODA gathered information from librarians and library boards on the development and status of their library, its problems and needs, and future plans and programs that might be used to meet these problems and needs. The NODA staff found that these libraries were attempting to upgrade and expand services to the public, but that they were hampered by financial constraints. Recommendations were made for increased financial and political support of libraries, increased resource sharing among libraries, continuing education for library staff, and the provision of adequate facilities. This report includes narrative descriptions of each library, arranged by county. Circulation and collection statistics, a list of library board members, and floorplans are included in most cases. Appendixes contain standards for library space and expenditures, plus Oklahoma library legislation. (SL)
