The article discusses the sixth in a series of articles about libraries which begins in 1961 in North Carolina. It explores information on the two types of libraries that emerged in the 1960s as important partners in the expansion of the state's libraries. It illustrates the 1967 Legislative Commission to Study Library Support which was charged to study the history of public library funding, to identify possible sources for additional support, and to recommend a support structure to the 1969 General Assembly. Several charts are presented that depicts the public library statistics, school library collections, circulations, personnel, and expenditures.
