Description
A literature search was conducted on rural library services for children, both in North American as well as global contexts. We found that there are few recent publications on services in North America specifically addressing the needs of rural children. There is a global trend to use mobile libraries as a way to reach many isolated communities and ensure that children in these areas are receiving literacy support in a non-academic context. We discuss definitions of rural libraries, policies in place at various levels to support services for rural children, ideal service requirements for rural children, as well as some implications for further research. Adapted from a project conducted in partnership with Amanda Brace.
