Literacy and the Nation's Libraries.
Lyman, Helen Huguenor
This manual guides libraries and librarians in the planning, organization, and procedures of literacy programs. After a review of literacy goals, chapters of the book discuss the specific roles of libraries and librarians in literacy programs; essential steps in planning literacy programs; the implementation of literacy programs in public, school, academic, and state libraries; population groups that are potential clients for literacy programs; the nature of reading and reading instruction; and librarians' questions about literacy programs. Appendixes provide "how-to" suggestions, resources, library-project profile reports, and summaries of national literacy studies. A glossary and general bibliography are included. (RL)
