Funding for Public Libraries in the 1990s.
Curley, Arthur
Library Journal, v115 n1 p65-67 Jan 1990
Reviews the idealistic origins of the public library in the United States and the gradual shift from private to public financial support. It is argued that a skeptical attitude toward the public sector led to the recent financial crisis for public libraries, and that strategies for funding must include reaffirmation of the original idealistic values.
