The briefing and forum on children and youth services was the second public event organized by the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science under the Omnibus Children and Youth Literacy Initiative, which was endorsed at the White House Conference on Library and Information Services in 1991. This report contains transcripts of the briefing and forum and the supplemental written statements submitted by many participants. The briefing focused on the California State Library and explored what federal policy can do for California citizens. Nine representatives of the California Research Bureau and related agencies discussed the demography and economy of California as they relate to library services. A particular focus was the way California manages Library Services and Construction Act funds; it highlights the Grandparents and Books program, an intergenerational approach to services. The open forum on the second day focused on "Redefining the Federal Role." Twenty-four participants from national and local agencies and organizations described ways federal initiatives and local programs can foster improved library services. Sixteen written statements (untitled) supplement the transcribed oral presentations. Ninety-five graphs and charts summarize information about the demography and economy of California. (SLD)
