    “Serving Disadvantaged Adults: An Institute for Public Librarians held at the College of St. Catherine, St there is an ever-expanding, unusually high quality book collection for all of the libraries in the area and the books are used! With new books, new buildings, and a good interlibrary loan service, the use of library materials is. But supporters say that serving alcohol increases event attendance, particularly among younger adults, and cultivates a public image of the library as a hip, up-to-date social setting.“People are used to relaxing with a beer or a glass of wine,” says Marcy James, programming coordinator for Jefferson County (Colo.)

After descriptions of some problems encountered by disadvantaged youths and some general services libraries can provide, specific guidelines for library services to young disadvantaged adults are given.

These include services both inside and outside the library: the selection of staff to work with the young adults, cooperation between the library and other agencies, planning special programs Author: Barbara Harris.

This report for fiscal year covers the second year activities of three demonstrations in Georgia, Ohio, and Tennessee, of the interrelating of public library and basic education services for disadvantaged adults.

It also covers the dissemination of these demonstrations through the training-institutes series in those three states and in Kentucky and : George W.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Schmidt, Susan K. Utilizing volunteers in expanding services to disadvantaged adults. Morehead, Ky.: Appalachian Adult Education Center, Morehead State University, The Appalachian Adult Education Center has developed a method of planning the expansion of library services to disadvantaged adults.

Preplanning activities include assessing community needs and resources, assessing the resources of the library, and selecting and inviting the people to attend the planning session. Guidelines are given for expanding library hours so that disadvantaged adults may use library facilities and services on nights and weekends.

There are discussions of cost, staffing, security problems, and publicity. Shifting library, bookmobile, and special programs to different hours; moving some programs outside the library; and special activities for Saturdays, Sundays, and weekends are.

The impact of participation in library programs and services during afterschool, weekends, and summers is significant. Instead of spending their summer with no books to read, disadvantaged youth who have access to libraries have increased access to books; research has shown that youth who have greater access to books read more (Krashen, ).

Among public institutions, the library has great potential for helping the poor and disenfranchised. For many, the library is the only refuge for information, literacy, entertainment, language skills, employment help, free computer use and even safety and shelter.

Experts Glen and Leslie Holt, with decades of service to inner city communities between them, challenge librarians. In US public library services, the term “young adult” most frequently refers to youth ages 12– This article uses the terms “teens,” “adolescents,” and “young adults” interchangeably, with a preference for the term “teens” since it is commonly used by youth in this age group to refer to themselves.

to bring programs and services together in the Library under a new “umbrella.” Like the LFF models, the Old Bridge Public Library staff felt that a physical “space” for this project within the library was an essential component and would give older adults an anchor within the Library. According to a study by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, 59% of libraries help patrons find health insurance resources, 18% bring in healthcare providers to offer free limited.

Ideas and innovations in public libraries. Introduction. Every time I do a new news post for Public Libraries News, I check the media for mentions of new ideas in the public library world. This is stuff that strikes me as unusual: it may be something that a particular public library has been doing for decades.

Venturella, Karen M. Poor People and Library Services. Jefferson, N.C.: McFarland, Older Americans constitute a significant and growing segment of library users, but in many ways the services they expect—collections, programs, continuing education, and community gathering—are traditional services of the library.

Library services to older adults represent a broad spectrum of traditional and innovative library practices. America’s older adults are diverse, differing by. After all, adults are the ones bringing children to these community spots. To raise awareness of its adult summer reading program, Kirkwood Public Library (MO) sent a mobile lending library to the local pool, where they inserted summer reading program flyers in all of their books.

Each public library has a different community to serve and therefore different priorities and needs. Although special library services for young adults have not been well established in all countries, these guidelines are created in the belief that young adulthood is a unique life stage.
