Bayard Taylor Memorial Library, Final Performance Report for Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) Title VI, Library Literacy Program.
Peters, Alice L.; Calio, Susan
This final performance report provides project outcome information and data to the U.S. Department of Education for the federally-funded Library Literacy Program. The Bayard Taylor Memorial Library (Kennett Square, Pennsylvania) conducted the Outreach Project, a project that involved public awareness, training, rural oriented programs, basic literacy, collection development, tutoring, intergenerational/family, and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. The project served a community of 50,000-100,000 people, and targeted the learning disabled, migrant workers, intergenerational/families, and ESL learners. Tutoring was done one-on-one. The project served 49 adult learners, and provided them with three hours per week of direct tutoring service. The report provides a comparison of actual accomplishments to goals and objectives set forth in the grant application; a comparison between proposed and actual expenditures; specific details of activities undertaken; the role the library played in the accomplishment of the goals and objectives; agencies and organizations that assisted in the project; and the impact of the federal project on the ongoing program of the library. Includes program brochures, a monthly tutoring and attendance calendar, and library newsletters for spring, fall, and winter 1993. (SWC)
