Adult New Reader Materials Available Here: A Survey of Literacy Materials Available in Three North Carolina Public Library Systems
The findings point to even more diversity in subject matter and location than Scales found. The results of this study indicate that literacy materials, when carried by a public library, are rarely shelved in a separate literacy section, and sometimes even in more than one section of the main collections. This prompts the following questions: Is a literacy section needed in public libraries? What are the benefits of separating this material out for adult new readers? Should literacy materials be integrated with the main collections?
