LIBRARY REPORT



The year just closed has been a very satisfactory
one for the hbrary.

The total number of books loaned were 807. Of
these 340 were adult fiction, 266 juvenile books
(fiction and non-fiction) and the remaining 201 were
principally biography, history and travels, also poetry
and nature books. This is a good circulation for so
small a community.

With the annual grant of $10.00, a purchase of
14 new books was made for the library. Also 25
books were received as a gift from the State Aid
Fund. These books were selected by the librarian
from lists sent from the Public Library commission,
and were chosen with special regard to the needs of
school children. Some remarkably fine and helpful
books have thus been added to the library. This gift
is deeply appreciated.

As usual, a deposit of books is continually in the
district school and books are loaned freely to high
school students.

A great need of the library is more magazines.
Current Events, National Geographic, World Travel-
ler and Popular Science, have all been asked for or
suggested; and would be most valuable as reference
material for the schools and others. But as the small
annual grant has to be spent for books, it leaves no
money for subscriptions to magazines, which is
greatly to be regretted.
