EASTON FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY



Librarian's Report

How much do you know about your library? How
long has the library been in existance and who was its
first librarian?

How often do you visit the library and can you
find any of the recent books there? When you feel
inclined to blame anyone because you don't find the
books you want when you visit the library, just ask
yourself "Do I visit the library often enough for the
librarian to learn the type of book I like to read, so
when ordering new books she can suit my taste in
reading?" Then perhaps you will find that the li-
brarian is not entirely to blame for not having your
type of book in the library.

During the past year 71 books have been added to
the library, 32 of which were purchased in November
and probably before this report reaches you there
will be more new books in the library, as we have
not yet received the 1946 quota of books from the
State Aid Fund.

We are still enjoying books from the Bookmobile,
and this past year we have borrowed 192 books and
loaned 684.

Number of visitors 584

Adult fiction 542

Adult non-fiction 119

Juvenile fiction 823

Juvenile non-fiction 66

Total number of books loaned 1,550

Magazines loaned 336



20



Total circulation 1,886

This fall in answer to a call for reading matter
for the veterans in the Hospital at White River Junc-
tion, Vt., we sent some of our old magazines.

Gertrude R. Eastman, Librarian

Superintendents Report



To the School Board and Citizens of Easton:

I herewith submit my fourth annual report as Su-
perintendent of Schools.

There were 24 Easton pupils attending school last
year at Franconia. The number classified by rooms
was as follows : Grades 1-3, 7 pupils ; Grades 4-6, 7
pupils; Grades 7-8, 4 pupils; High School, 6 pupils.
There were 3 Easton pupils at Sugar Hill,

There are 28 pupils attending school this year.
Four are attending at Sugar Hill. Twenty-four are
enrolled at Franconia in the elementary school and
7 in the high school. Thelma Leighton completed
the elementary school and entered the high school.
Anna Darvid and Helen Davis achieved perfect rec-
ords of attendance, not being absent or tardy for
the entire school year. Anna had perfect attendance
last year also. The general attendance of all Easton
children has been good.

Norma Lang won the Elizabeth Taylor Dow prize
speaking contest.

We have had to transport 5 pupils from Wildwood
this year. This has increased our school expense.
We have been fortunate to obtain transportation at
a very reasonable rate.

More Easton pupils now attend high school. This
is an added expense but reflects favorably on the
educational opportunities offered by the town of
Easton.

Respectfully submitted,

RONALD A. PERHAM,
Superintendent of Schools
