INTRODUCTORY.



The Reuben Hoar Library, a gift to the citizens of Littleton by one who
has preferred to be considered an unknown donor, was opened to the public
in August, 1887. The number of books then ready for delivery was about
2,200; a number since increased to a little over 4,000 volumes. Of the
original gift of $10,000, one half, by the terms of the bequest, forms a
permanent fund to provide for future additions.

The plan of classification adopted for the Library is that known as the
Dewey, or " Decimal," System, devised by Professor Melvil Dewey, now
secretary of the American Library Association and of the University of the
State of New York.

The decimals, which are an invaluable feature of the system where
extended or minute classification is desired, have been used in comparatively
few cases; mainly in the departments of History, Travel, and Biography.
By use of a table ingeniously arranged by Mr. C. A. Cutter, of the Boston
Athenaeum, the books of the different classes are placed upon the shelves
in alphabetic order of author.

It has not been considered practicable to print the system of classification
in full, but the main classes and divisions have been given, and in the sub-
ject index following them will be found a more complete guide to the books.

Inquiry should be made at the desk for any book wanted, but not found
in the catalogue. Any one preferring to do so may write the name of the
book desired instead of its class and author number.



PROPERTY OF
THE CITY OF NEW YORK

RULES AND REGULATIONS.

Adopted by the Trustees.



The Library shall be open on Wednesday from 2 to 5 P. M., and on
Saturday from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 P. M., except when the above days occur on
legal holidays.

1. Any permanent resident of the town over twelve years of age, may
take from the Library one book at a time, after signing a promise that he or
she will observe all rules and regulations of the Library, provided no book
shall be delivered to a minor until the parent, guardian, or other responsible
resident shall have become surety for said minor.

2. Persons temporarily residing in town may enjoy the privilege of the
Library on the same condition as residents, provided that, in taking books,
they furnish a satisfactory guarantee, or deposit with the librarian the value
of the book taken.

3. Every person entitled to borrow books from the Library shall receive
a card bearing his name. This card must always be presented on taking
out a book for home use, and also on returning or renewing a book. Each
card holder will be held responsible for any book drawn by means of his
card.

4. Application for books is to be made on printed slips provided by the
Library. The name and address of the applicant copied from his card must
be written on these slips, and both card and slip must be handed to the
librarian.

5. Books can be kept three weeks unless otherwise marked. Any new
book that is likely to be in great demand, may be marked to be retained one
or two weeks only, and shall not be renewed or retaken by any member of
the same family until it has been upon the shelves of the library at least one
ibrary day. The fine for keeping a book over time shall be five cents for
every library day. When a book is one week over due, notice of delin-
quency shall be given by postal card, and after another week of detention it
shall be sent for at the expense of the delinquent.

6. Injuries to books beyond reasonable wear, and all losses, shall be
made good to the Library to the satisfaction of the trustees, by the person
liable ; and no books shall be loaned to any person who has fines or penal-
ties remaining unsettled.



RULES AND REGULATIONS.



7. Special attention is called to the following law of the Commonwealth : —

" Whoever wilfully and maliciously, or wantonly and without cause, writes
upon, injures, defaces, tears or destroys any book, plate, picture, engraving
or any statue, belonging to any law, town, city, or other public library, shall
be punished by a fine of not less than five dollars, nor more than fifty dol-
ars, or by imprisonment in the jail not exceeding six months for every such
offence. — Approved Feb. 26, 1872."

It must be borne in mind that the turning down of leaves, and the writing
upon books, even for corrections of the press, is forbidden. Books lost or
damaged must be replaced by the borrower.

8. A book is not to be lent out of the household of the person on whose
card it is taken.

9. Reference books, marked " R " in the catalogue, cannot be taken from
the Library . . . except by permission of two of the trustees.

10. Persons may receive books for consultation in the reading-room by
making written application on the " Hall slips," furnished at the desk. Any
one neglecting to return such books shall forfeit this privilege.

11. The librarian is required to exercise discretion in regard to the use
of all books, especially in the case of minors, and in regard to books of
great value or rarity, and may also, at discretion, refuse to change a book
the same day on which it is taken out.

12. Only one book can be taken at a time, unless the work is in more
than one volume, in which case two may be taken.

13. For teachers in public schools cards shall be issued on which
three books at a time may be taken. Pupils' cards shall be issued, one for
each teacher, on which six books at a time may be taken. These books
shall be upon subjects connected with the studies of the school. Teachers
shall be responsible for all books so taken, and shall return any such book
immediately upon the written notification of the librarian.

14. All the books shall be returned for an annual examination at such
time as the trustees may appoint.

15. Neither books, papers, nor magazines, belonging to the reading-room
tables, can be taken from the Library.

16. No person except the librarian, assistant, or a trustee, shall enter an
alcove or take any book from the shelves without special permission.

17. All persons visiting the Library will be required to conduct them-
selves quietly, and to avoid loud and disturbing conversation. The use ol
tobacco in any form is strictly prohibited in the portion of the building
assigned to the Library. Any one abusing the privileges of the Library by
improper conduct will be denied admission.
