A supplement to "Library Services to the People of New York," this document identifies current library needs in New York and recommends actions for meeting those needs through the Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) program. The bulk of this report focuses on Title I (Public Library Service) programs for the following: (1) the economically disadvantaged; (2) the blind and physically handicapped; (3) the disabled; (4) the institutionalized; (5) those with limited English-speaking ability; (6) the elderly; (7) literacy; (8) community information and referral centers; (9) areas with inadequate service; (10) major urban resource libraries; and (12) the state library administrative agency. Each program description concisely summarizes the need for the program, its objective, and intended actions. A brief section describes the general elements of Title II (Public Library Construction), and readers are referred to the original report, "Library Service to the People of New York State" for information on Title III (Interlibrary Cooperation and Resource Sharing).
