Look, Listen, Explain; Developing Community Library Services for Young Adults.
American Library Association, Chicago, IL. Young Adult Services Div.
Plans are provided for developing a young adult program both in the library and in the community. Community investigation methods are described--where to look for information, organizations to contact, places where youth congregate and may be reached, ways to cooperate with schools, and how to survey the target group. Suggestions are made for developing a program based on the needs of the young adult community. These include establishing a good basic in-library program, training of library staff, involving young adults in the planning and encouraging participation of outside organizations. Funding, public relations, followup, and techniques for continuous evaluation of the program are also covered. Forms used in developing, publicizing, evaluating, and reporting the programs are appended. (LS)
