Public library services in Ghana are satisfactory in respect of their conventional functions. However they need to take a more active interest in fundamental and continuing education, both in the production of the requisite literature and its distribution. The complex and varied nature of adult literature can best be serviced by professional library personnel, not library clerks, who understand the needs of potential readers and are able to communicate with other officers concerned with adult education, in their own language.
