Summary

An investigation of the school and public libraries in Newport, New Hampshire was conducted to determine the kinds of cooperation which would lead to the best possible service for users. The following major recommendations were made. First, it was suggested that the Advisory Council on Libraries created for the study, be maintained, and that a centralized public library system be developed with adequate financing, administration and staff provided. Second, it was recommended that centralized acquisitions be made, that a community resource file be developed, that an audiovisual software collection and delivery service be established, and that professional collection for teachers be housed in the public library. Third, the study concluded that school libraries needed to be upgraded, particularly with respect to their reference collections, equipment and processing, that recreational reading titles should be placed directed in classrooms, that a school volunteer library group be formed, and that a library arts center be created. Finally, it was recommended that teachers be given library inservice programs and that library education count toward the necessary units for teacher recertification; at the same time, it was felt that students should also receive additional library education.
