Narrative Report of the El Centro de la Causa Library Project, 1973-1975.
Chicago Public Library, IL.
El Centro de la Causa and the Chicago Public Library cooperated in a program to serve Chicago's Spanish speaking population. The project assessed needs and designed programs to meet those needs by establishing a library in El Centro's community center and some outreach programs. An active acquisitions program for Spanish language materials was developed. In the second year the two organizations expanded their activities to include an education component, a research component, services to seniors and to other community organizations, and publication of a bilingual news bulletin and calendar. As a result of a project evaluation, recommendations were made to establish more libraries in public meeting places, to develop new services for special populations, and to reorganize library services to serve the public more fully.
