Guidelines for Public Library Service to Children in Vermont.
A task force was charged with developing a revised set of guidelines for public library service to children in Vermont. Together with the results of a survey of Vermont public libraries, the help of recommendations from other states, and the expertise of individual libraries, the task force drew up a number of guidelines. In the first section the philosophy and goals of good library service to children are outlined. The next section presents guidelines for staffing children's services, including the qualifications and responsibilities of a children's librarian and information on professional development, scheduling, staffing levels, evaluation, and salaries. Guidelines in the next three sections are concerned with library materials for children, programming, and physical facilities. Concluding the guidelines are a description of the role of the library trustees as it relates to children's services, a copy of the Library Bill of Rights, and an interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights as it pertains to the rights of minors.
