The purchaser of books shall not turn over the books until a book-
case shall have been providea without expense to the public. The
case must be of good material and furnished with a substantial lock.
The doors may be of wood or of glass. The case should be not less
than three feet high, three feet wide, and one deep in the clear.
There should be not less than three shelves, each about one-half inch
thick. The distance fr,om the bottom of the case to the lower shelf

Office of Supt. Public Instruction,

Raleigh. N. C, August 29. 1901.

A committee consisting of Prof. E. P. Moses, Prof. D. H. Hill, Prof.
B. F. Sledd, Prof. J. I. Foust and Prof. G. A. Grimsley was appointed
jointly by myself and the North Carolina Historical Society to select
suitable booKs for the Rural Libraries.

After extensive correspondence and examination of catalogues and
prices, the committee recommends the following list of books. This
list is a compromise among the committee, and the first list can be
purchased for $29. y7. If all the books in this are not accepted, other
books can be selected from the supplementary list published, or when
the available funds exceed $30.00 selections can be made from the
supplementary books recommended. It is distinctly understood that
there is nothing binding in sending out these lists. These books are
simply recommended. The freight or express charges are to be
added.

These books can be purchased from Messrs. Baker & Taylor Co.,
33-37 East 17th Street, New York; University Publishing Co., 43 East
10th dtreet, New York, or from John Wanamaker, Philadelphia, Pa.,
at prices designated. All of them can be bought from either house,
or some from each house. Other large dealers might sell them as
cheaply as these houses.

I return thanks to the committee for their valuable assistance,
especially those of them that met with me several times to consider
these selections.

The funds for chese libraries are now ready, and will be sent out
to the counties as rapidly as the County Superintendents and chair-
men of the County Boards sign and return the requests sent to them.
Yours truly, T. F. Toon,

Superintendent of Public Instruction.
