New Trends in Public Library Service to Children.
Jensen, Ken
In this discussion spiced with reminiscences, a former children's librarian sees library services for children as part of the continuum of all library services. However, social and economic changes--such as cutbacks in funds, inflation, concerns over book selection, intellectual freedom, and the patron's right to read--have led to a situation in which there are no universally agreed upon and defined objectives. Challenges confronting future successful library services to children exist in the areas of priorities, publicity, user needs, access, community support, creative programming, research and evaluation, relationships between administration and library staff, and cooperation between school and library.
