McKenna, Gerald
This study is an evaluation and planning tool using information and techniques presented in a seminar conducted in 1975-76 called "Institute on Developing Dynamic Public Library Services Responsive to Community Needs." It is a synthesis and analysis of information available about the City and its Library. Presented in four parts, Part 1 analyzes the population, family size, income, marital status, school enrollment, and unemployment for the community. Part 2 analyzes the city of Pawtucket. Size, location, physical features, governmental structures and services, transportation patterns, and facilities are some of the factors that are reviewed. The Pawtucket Public library in the context of the city of Pawtucket and in the larger context of its role as the Regional Library Center for the Northern Interrelated Library System is described in Part 3. Library holdings, services offered, programs, resources, size, location, staff organization, departmental operations, and library users are all facets taken into consideration. The final part contains recommendations for improved services, growth, and expansion. (Author/AP)
