The Role of the Public Library in Non-Traditional Education.
Klingberg, Susan
The historical and contemporary involvement of the public library in non-traditional education is presented with the focus on adult basic education. Although most of the programs cited are in the United States, frequent references are made to international applications as described in United Nations reports and foreign case studies. Information about the financing of these programs includes a chapter on the involvement of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The future of the public library involvement in non-traditional education is discussed from a prescriptive rather than descriptive point of view, and a 29 item bibliography is provided. (JVP)
