Jesser, David L.
A Nevada program under the auspices of the Western States Small Schools Project and aimed at providing "enjoyment" reading for small rurally disadvantaged schools is described in this report. Included in this program description are: (1) Introduction (a description of the rural, low-income, target population); (2) The Proposal (states that a collection of enjoyment reading books be placed in approximately 15 of Nevada's rurally deprived elementary schools); (3) Procedures (describes the formation of a committee of four to determine the target schools and assemble representative book titles as determined by the teachers in each school); (4) Table I (tabular data re: Nevada schools receiving books under the proposal together with amounts to be expended); (5) Table II (tabular data re: Nevada schools receiving books under the proposal together with actual and encumbered expenditures); (6) Map of Nevada Schools Receiving Books. The grant of $3,000 received from the Fund for the Advancement of Education in 1966 through the Western States Small Schools Project is described in the proposal as being used for books not to be accessioned to the library list and for books to be considered expendable, if lost.
