Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE October Lethbridge may become centre for libraries Season opener It's still a bit early in the season to tell what everyone's mid-season form will be, but there's nothing like the fun that follows the first snow that stays long enough to try sliding. These early enthusiasts tried on the hill at 19th Avenue and 18th Street S. Saturday. City Scene Teacher feedback needed, ATA consultant suggests When teachers and school boards are at cross purposes and don't communicate, the education of children is affected says an Alberta Teachers' Association com- munications consultant. Every ATA communication program should stress face to face communications between teachers and school boards or the job of education won't get done, Melvin D. Spackman of Lethbridge told a conference of Southern Alberta ATA com- munications officers and presidents TURKEY and ROAST LIFTER A simple and easv way to lift heavy cuts of meat in or out of the roaster.

SUPER VALUE 1 97 Call Housewares 327-5767 DOWNTOWN Some of the com- munications officers attending the conference at the Holiday Inn, Saturday, said there was a "we they syndrome" between their local school boards and teachers which resulted in poor communication between teachers and board members. Policies can be passed, effecting students, teachers and parents, that are detrimental to the whole educational scene unless people stand up for what they Mr. Spackman told The Herald in an interview following the conference. School boards should know in advance how people feel about certain policies. This can be accomplished by students, teachers and parents just talking to board members. The Lethbridge public school board's discipline and management by objectives policies had very little input from teachers, he said. Boards do not know the effects policies are going to have, he said. One way of averting problems before they happen is to tell the board before the policy is enacted. Boards can only go on what is before them and unless parents, teachers and students are willing to voice their opinions, boards don't know if they are for or against a policy, Mr. Spackman said. Teachers' opinions can be expressed through local ATA organizations, parents' opinions through home and school associations and students' opinions through stu- dent unions. However, if these organizations do not function well locally, it is very difficult to communicate their members feelings to a school board, he said. FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S.

By MICHAEL ROGERS Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge may be southwestern Alberta's regional library centre if Ed- monton acts on a recommen- dation to have a single integrated service and infor- mation network, says Lethbridge's chief librarian, Duncan Rand. The recommendation was among several being proposed to the provincial government by the Downey report on provincial library services. In May, 1973 the department of culture, youth and recrea- tion commissioned Downey Research Associates to study libraries. The main recommendation of the Downey report is that the province establish the Alberta Library and Information -Network, known as ALINET. Mr. Rand said one of the principal benefits to Lethbridge would be a strong boost in provincial revenue, "which would either expand, our present system or reduce the municipal tax load. "We will be able to draw from the resources of the new system to get material we don't have. There will be organized buying of material on a provincial basis, all of which will provide better public Mr. Rand said. ALINET would be establish- ed through an interim phasing in period of three years through provincial govern- ment financing. The Downey report recommends that in fiscal year 1975 the province should finance ALINET million in operating costs of existing library services and to ac- quire the personnel to design and operate the network and integrated public library systems. Mr. Rand said the million is about the amount now spent by existing municipal library systems. Most of that money is spent in Calgary and Edmonton. "The money would either replace the existing revenue or, hopefully, double he said. Other benefits to Lethbridge, he explained, would be increased provincial funding for the library, access to provincial leadership in the areas of technical, RON ZUKIWSKY PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave. S Phone 327-4121 bibliographical and con- sultative services, and access to improved province wide public library service. Mr. Rand said if the govern- ment acts on the Downey report and passes legislation accordingly, Lethbridge will receive greater response from the province. "We will also have more responsibility. We will be providing services to all of southwestern Alberta and, upon request, any other centre in the he added. But to get ALINET func- tioning by next year, Mr. Rand said, "The report would have to come before the legislature during the next two sessions." He said better public ser- vice would be in the area of inter library loans, books, films and reference services. He explained that Alberta, though it has been slow in setting up a new library system, can benefit from tak- ing the time to look at the systems established in other provinces, such as British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Ontario. "We are able to see where their strengths and weaknesses are and build on he said. Mr. Rand said that the rural areas will benefit most from ALINET because, "we will be able to provide smaller rural communities with library ser- vices they never had before." He noted smaller centres will be able to have libraries through provincial funding. He claimed the new Alberta Libraries Act will make organized, professional public library service mandatory. Possible locations of those 10 systems besides Lethbridge are the Peace River area, the Edson area, the Port McMurray region, the Lloyd- minster area, the Red Deer area, the Olds and Drumheller region, Medicine Hat, Ed- monton and Calgary.
