5 years a city when this report was published
Chapter 1: History, Organizations, Recreation, Religion
Background: This document is the result of a contact made by Middleton Public Library Director Susan Mack, who in January 1968 contacted the University of Wisconsin Library School about the prospect of conducting a community needs survey. The project was taken on by 9 students in L.S. 712 (Public Library), taught by Visiting Lecturer Bernard Schwab, Director of the Madison Public Library. Apparently, there is a long history of current and former practitioners teaching this course.
I stumbled across this document yesterday while browsing the stacks at the UW-Madison SLIS Library.
What a surprise.
If the Middleton Public Library ever had a copy, it was not cataloged nor placed in any file drawer. It would have been hard to miss. The catalog record notes "various pagings"; I'd say they add up to about 200. A not insubstantial project.
What follows is my summary of chapter 1.
