Description: From School Library Journal
As diverse as the population they examine, these wide-ranging essays discuss survey re-sults; demographics; outstanding literature; information needs of migrant workers; and workshops and services for parents, teens, and children. The selections, written by library professionals for the Trejo Foster Foundation for Hispanic Library Education Fourth National Institute, are grouped under six topics, including "Programs," "Collections," "Planning and Evaluating," and "For the Future." Two points made throughout (backed by statistics) are that the Hispanic presence in our country is not limited to border areas or isolated pockets, and that this community is underserved by libraries. Tim Wadham's Programming with Latino Children's Materials (Neal-Schuman, 1999) is a practical, nuts-and-bolts guide to collection development and programming. Like a good conference, Library Services provides reasoned arguments and tools for implementing change, lists of bibliographical resources, and offers plenty of inspiration.

Product Description:
As the United States becomes ever more comfortable with recognizing the cultural diversity of the many groups that make up its population, library services must seek to meet patrons' needs as they are shaped and expressed by their cultural backgrounds. This goal is particularly important for youth library services. For young people of Hispanic heritage, library services attuned to their specific needs and interests are crucial. Many librarians struggle with how to properly create and maintain library programs and collections that are suitable to the needs of Hispanic youth.
In this series of essays prepared for the Trejo Foster Foundation for Hispanic Library Education Fourth National Institute, national leaders in librarianship present their insights about how to best meet the needs of young Hispanic library patrons. The text is introduced by the editors, and the essays are arranged in parts: Programs; Collections; Planning and Evaluating; Bibliographical Resources; and For the Future. Information abou the contributors and an index conclude the volume.
