From 1988 to 1995, Partnerships for Change (PFC) led the way in developing innovative library service programs and forging new community partnerships. Today, many PFC principles--planning, needs assessment, valuing diversity, community linkages, public relations and evaluation--have been incorporated into how California public libraries plan for their futures. This document profiles the PFC principles, experience and evidence of success, and includes the testimonials of participants in the program. Guidelines are provided on: PFC Program background, philosophy and success; valuing diversity and cultural responsiveness; community linkages and coalition-building; community-based needs assessment; planning; incorporation/restructuring; public relations; managing change; evaluation; and successful local program elements. Appendices list PFC trainers, guest trainers and consultants and PFC libraries and participants. (AEF)
