Children's Services of Public Libraries.
Richardson, Selma K., Ed.
This collection of papers provides an overview of the status of children's services in public libraries and identifies areas which need to be strengthened. A review of the institute program and an examination of the goals of children's services are followed by 16 papers focusing on the child, the children's librarian, services, facilities, materials, and research. Four final papers present the views of four participants as they reacted to the program from the perspectives of a recent library school graduate, a retired leader in the field, a school librarian, and a library administrator. A list of acronyms and a subject index are included. (JVP)
