Long Range Plan, Fiscal Years 1989 through 1993, for the State of Washington under the Library Services and Construction Act.
Washington State Library, Olympia. Library Development Div.
Prepared as a planning guide, this document presents goals, objectives, and proposed activities to improve library services in the state of Washington. The long range plan for 1989-1993 is designed to serve as a framework for the annual programs during the 5-year period which are supported, fully or partially, with Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) funds. In the event that state funds are also involved in a particular program, the plan addresses the total program, not just the portion funded with federal dollars. (These programs are delivered through Washington State Library's Public Services Division and through a contract with the Seattle Public Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.) Under Title I of the LSCA, the plan covers public library services for areas without services, areas with inadequate services, major urban resources libraries, the disadvantaged, literacy programs, persons with limited English-speaking proficiency, the elderly, the handicapped, the blind and physically handicapped, and the institutionalized. These funds can also be used to improve the ability of local public library personnel to access information from external resources. Title II supports the construction of adequate public library facilities. Statewide resource sharing and multitype library cooperation are supported by Title III. The Washington State Library mission statement, which is also included, outlines the goals for activities funded under Titles I, II, and III of the LSCA. (SD)
