Family Literacy: An Annotated Bibliography and Selected Public Library Program Descriptions.
Stiles, Rebecca E.
This research study provides an extensive compilation of information sources on the topic of family literacy for library professionals and other literacy providers. This paper includes the following main sections: (1) combined literature review and annotated bibliography; (2) survey results; and (3) family literacy program descriptions. The first section contains 52 entries and is divided into four subjects: bibliographies/handbooks; theoretical/general information sources; program models; and organizations. The second section presents the results of a survey distributed to all state-aid North Carolina public library systems concerning their involvement in family literacy programs. The survey revealed that 27% of these systems have been either actively involved in family literacy programs in the past, are presently involved, or will be in the near future. The third section contains six family literacy program descriptions which include program summaries, recruitment and evaluation methods, instructional materials, and funding sources. Two appendixes provide copies of the survey cover letter and the survey instrument. (Author/MAB)
