I hereby certify that I have examined the foregoing accounts
of the Selectmen, Treasurer, Town Clerk and Tax Collector

and find them correct to the best of my belief, and all dis-
bursements properly vouched.

Librarian's Report



This past year the Library has enjoyed the service of the
Bookmobile and at no extra cost to the town, although it has
meant extra time and work on the part of the librarian. Last
year we borrowed 68 books and this year 272 books. This
service did not begin until August 1940.

Through some error or misunderstanding there was no
printed report from the librarian last year. So this report will
include last year's figures:

1940 1941

Number of visitors 986 887

Adult fiction 629 588

Adult non-fiction 86 108

Juvenile fiction 482 772

Juvenile non-fiction 54 80

Magazines 668 843

Total number of books loaned 1251 1538

Bookmobile books loaned 228 594

From interested friends of the library we have received
gifts of magazines and books (17) for which we are truly
grateful.

From the State Aid Fund we received 3 adult fiction, 4 non-
fiction and 8 juvenile books; these were all published during
the past year or two. With the town's appropriation 15 adult
fiction and 9 juvenile books were added to the library.

If you are not already using your privilege of reading the
books which the library can lend you, will you not make it
your business to visit the library and if you cannot find the
books you care to read, just give a list of the books you like
and the librarian will try to get them for you from the Book-
mobile.
