New Hampshire School, Public, and State Library Programs Supporting the National Education Goals for the Year 2000.
New Hampshire State Library, Concord.
Programs undertaken by New Hampshire school and public libraries and the state library in support of the National Education Goals for the Year 2000 are outlined. In support of Goal 1, readiness for school, New Hampshire libraries offer a variety of preschool programs and story hours, as well as the Preparing Ahead for School Success parent workshops. Goal 2, relating to high school completion, is supported by the information and research services the libraries make available, and the opportunities for at-risk students that library media centers provide. Student achievement and citizenship, targets of Goal 3, are enhanced by resource-based learning programs and the New Hampshire Automated Information System, as well as professional workshops for library and media center personnel. Goal 4 indicates that U.S. students should be first in the world in science and mathematics achievement by the year 2000. High school and elementary school library programs for students and teachers are presented in support of this goal. Goal 5 advocates adult literacy and lifelong learning, areas in which the public libraries play a vital role, with adult literacy programs as well as library services. Safe, disciplined, and drug-free schools, the aim of Goal 6, is supported by library-provided information about drugs and technical assistance to those providing drug education services. (SLD)
