Vermont Department of Libraries Biennial Report: Statistics of Local Libraries, July 1, 1990-June 30, 1992. Vermont Library Directory, 1993.
Vermont State Dept. of Libraries, Montpelier.
The 12th biennial report of the Vermont State Library, statistics of local libraries, and a directory of libraries in Vermont are presented. In the 1990-92 biennium, library services in Vermont were redefined by budget constraints and by changes in information, formats, and society. The Vermont Automated Libraries System (VALS), clearer public library missions, and stronger school libraries also contributed to a need for redefinition of service in Vermont. Operations in the areas of basic services, literacy programs for adults and children, access to information, library development, and resource sharing are outlined. Four tables present some statewide statistics. Statistics of local libraries grouped by size are presented in 17 pages of tables. The "Vermont Library Directory, 1993" lists the 505 libraries that participate in the Vermont Resource Sharing Network, which includes 212 public libraries. The directory is arranged alphabetically by township in which the library is located. Libraries are also listed by type and region, and alphabetically by name. Their symbols in the Vermont Union Catalog are listed. (SLD)
