Abstract

Reviews and Remarks 197 World War I in 1917 and continued through 1962. This is when the role of the library was seen as chiefly focusing on acting as meaningful learning centers for adult education. The third phase started in 1963, when there was a deep-seated shift in the way libraries viewed their responsibilities toward educating their users. In the 1960s, libraries began looking at themselves as providers of pleasure and entertainment, and began adopting a philosophy that any type of reading is good reading. Post-1980, readers’ advisors more fully adopted the “Give ‘em what they want” philosophy, which included purchasing multiple copies of best sellers, and using the library as a social center. I highly recommend this book on three levels. Historically, it is very interesting to see the progression, based on current events, of how libraries approach their missions and responsibilities to develop their collections and to assist patrons in their reading choices. The authors of this book have been able to go so far as to pinpoint individuals responsible for driving certain changes. Practically, there are wonderful suggestions on how to connect with readers on a personal level in your libraries and help them find quality
