This book is a collection of 14 essays about librarians, educators, and organizations in the United States that have endeavored to bring library services to groups that previously did not have access. There are three sections: Benevolent and Commercial Organizations, Government Supported Programs, and Innovative Outreach Services. Reading materials for two centuries of rural Louisianians, shipboard libraries for the American navy and merchant marine corps, library outreach to prisoners, the Indiana Township Library Program, 1852-1872, tribal libraries in the lower 48 states, electronic outreach, open-air libraries, and the use of radio in promoting the Municipal Reference Library of the City of New York are some of the essay topics.
