From Editor Smallwood has brought together 66 short articles by 34 practicing librarians in a wide range of libraries. Separated into 10 parts, the volume provides snapshots of outreach solutions to meet a variety of needs. Following a section highlighting 9 sample outreach programs, the work offers sections meeting needs for specific populations (seniors, youth, those in correctional facilities) as well as on special collections, local media, book festivals, and classroom and diversity outreach. The final section covers community-group collaboration. It is hard to understand the organization of these parts, and some information, such as outreach to seniors, is scattered across several different articles. Although the ideas presented are useful, there are no guidelines for reproducing these successes or assisting readers in designing their own outreach. --Sara Marcus About the Author Carol Smallwood received her MLS from Western Michigan University and her MA in History from Eastern Michigan University.
