Abstract
  • The purpose of this study has been to develop insight into the aims and goals of public library service by considering one particular type of library activity--work with adult groups. To determine the influence of historical events on such service, consideration has been given to group work of the past fifty years in relation to such events as World War I, the Great Depression, the Adult Education movement, World War II, and recent projects of the Federal Government. Emphasis has been placed on the educational and psychological values derived from this type of library service to adults. Among the groups studied are the blind, the foreign born, inmates of hospitals and institutions, businessmen, military servicemen, labor union members, the aging, and the illiterate. Cooperation of the library with other organizations already serving these groups has been noted. Information regarding national programs was obtained from the reports and proceedings of the American Library Association, and participation of an individual . library in this work is described from material found in the annual reports of the Library Association of Portland. Detailed organization procedures of American Library Association work with each group is given in Appendix I. From this study of past activities, it is recommended that the public library initiate service to groups, cooperate with other organizations serving such groups, adapt its processes to meet particular needs, and encourage the group to form its own library whenever it is indicated that this will provide better service.
