Report    of    County    Free    Library    Sign 
Committee. 

The  "Sign"  Committee  humbly  and  re- 
spectfully submits  another  report. 

The  real  secret  of  our  trouble  in  supply- 
ing the  signs  was  not  discovered  until 
November  1,  when  the  Chairman  visited 
the  Chicago  office  and  talked  with  Mr 
►Simmons,  the  president  of  the  Enameled 
Steel  Sign  Company. 

She  found  that  the  company  were  job- 
bers, having  the  work  done  in  many  enam- 
eled steel  factories.  Our  piece  of  work 
was  contracted  for  with  a  Pennsylvania 
factory  which,  ever  since  the  placing  of 
the  order,  has  had  great  difficulty  in  get- 
ting and  keeping  skilled  workmen.  (They 
say  our  sign  is  the  most  particular  they 
have  ever  done.)  They  are  near  the 
munition  factories  and  their  workmen  are 
daily  invited  to  better  wages  in  the  muni- 
tion plants. 

They  only  made  this  the  excuse  for 
delay  until  last  September,  when  they 
refused  to  fulfill  the  contract  with  the  Chi- 
cago company,  reserving  all  their  working 
force  for  their  larger  less  difficult  orders. 

In  direct  conversation  with  Mr  Sim- 
mons (the  correspondence  through  their 
Pacific  Coast  agent  had  complicated 
rather  than  simplified  the  matter)  it  was 
apparent  that  he  could  place  our  future 
orders  with  another  factory  and  that  he 


vol.  12,  no.  1] 


COUNTY    LIBRARIANS'    CONVENTION. 


could  promise  satisfactory  workmanship 
and  reasonable  delivery. 

Of  course  the  prices  are  greatly  ad- 
vanced except  for  the  unfilled  part  of  the 
original  order. 

This  is  the  new  schedule  : 

"If  100  signs  are  ordered  and 
shipped  in  the  lot  price  to  be  $2.30 
each. 

If  250  signs  are  ordered  and  shipped 
in  the  lot  price  to  be  $2.06  each. 

If  500  signs  are  ordered  and  shipped 
in  the  lot  price  to  be  $1.94  each. 

Prices  net  f.  o.  b.  factory,  signs  to  be 
same  as  those  we  have  been  furnish- 
ing you  and  screws  to  be  charged  for 
extra. 

These  prices  are  for  immediate  ac- 
ceptance and  subject  to  market 
changes  in  the  future. 

Signs  to.  be  delivered  in  about  three 
(3)  months  from  receipt  of  order  by 
Chicago  office. 

Unfinished  original  order  to  be  filled 
at  original  price. — " 

There  has  been  some  talk  of  using  a 
suit  'sign  giving  the  name  of  the  branch, 
size  to  be  3"  by  12".  The  price  will  be 
$2.95  each  f.  o.  b.  factory.  Each  sign's 
showing  a  different  name  accounts  for  the 
high  price. 

Mrs  Frances  Burns  Linn, 

Chairman. 

Report  of  Forms  and  Blanks  Committee. 

At  this  stage  in  County  Library  devel- 
opment it  is  important  that  statistics 
should  accomplish  two  things — they  should 
show  uniformity  and  should  indicate  the 
growth.  Perhaps  more  statistics  are 
needed  now  than  will  be  later.  Figures 
seem  to  help  greatly  in  organizing  and 
developing  and  in  making  arguments  foi 
more  funds. 

Now  that  we  are  developing  so  greatly 
in  regard  to  school  library  service,  should 
not  that  service  have  a  separate  count 
distinct  from  a  community  branch,  which 
may  or  may  not  be  in  the  school  building? 
Should  they  not  at  this  stage  of  develop- 
ment be  counted  as  two  branches  ?  How 
else  can  we  show  that  community  service 
is  given  through  a  certain  number  of  cen- 
ters and  school  service  through  a  certain 
number,  and  how  else  can  we  compare  one 
county  with  another  when  both  have  the 
same  number  of  branches  but  one  serving 
community  alone,  the  other  both  school 
and  community  through  a  branch?     This 


may  not  be  the  final  decision  but  for  the 
present,  to  bring  out  the  development,  this 
plan  which  is  outlined  on  page  592  of 
July  News  Notes  of  California  Libraries, 
has  been  adopted. 

As  to  the  date  of  establishment  of  a 
branch  it  is  counted  that  a  community 
branch  is  established  when  all  arrange- 
ments are  perfected  and  a  school  district 
branch  as  established  on  the  date  the  dis- 
trict joins. 

It  is  very  difficult  to  decide  definitely 
what  statistics  are  essential,  but  the  points 
to  be  brought  out  are  those  which  show 
the  activities  of  the  library  and  the  tend- 
encies of  its  growth  and  use.  For  this, 
we  need  to  know — 

Receipts  and  itemized  expenditures. 

Accessions  and  withdrawals 

Books  and  other  material  shipped  to 

and  returned  from  branches 
Number  and  kind  of  branches 
Number  of  cardholders 
Use   of   books,   magazines   and   other 

material 
Special   requests,   assistance   received 
from  State  Library  and  other  inter- 
library  loans 

More  work  has  been  done  by  the  com- 
mittee on  forms  and  blanks  than  the  re- 
sults show.  It  is  a  difficult  thing  to  decide 
on  a  uniform  blank  which  will  apply  to 
the  needs  of  the  varyingly  different  libra- 
ries, and  at  a  period  of  county  library 
growth  When  new  developments  are  con- 
tinually occurring. 

At  the  County  Librarians'  convention 
at  Sacramento  in  January,  391G,  a  group 
of  interested  county  librarians  meeting 
informally  with  the  committee  decided 
upon  the  following : 

Choice  between — ■ 

(1)  Ordinary  accession  record 

(2)  Record  showing  summary  of  ac- 

cessions 

(1)  Ordinary  shelf-list  record 

(2)  Combination  accession  and  shelf 

record 

Work  is  being  done  on  the  statistics 
sheet.

NEWS   NOTES  OP   CALIFORNIA  LIBRARIES.  [Jan.,  1917 


CALIFORNIA  LIBRARIES— QUARTERLY 
STATISTICS,  ETC. 


All  libraries  are  listed  except  elemen- 
tary public  school  and  church  libraries 
and  those  which  belong  to  private  indi- 
viduals. They  are  arranged  alphabetically 
by  place  under  counties  and  counties  are 
arranged  alphabetically.  To  determine 
the  county  in  which  any  place  is  located 
see  list  following  these  introductory  para- 
graphs. 

Those  libraries  are  marked  with  an 
asterisk  (*)  which  are  not  free  to  the 
public  for  either  loan  or  reference  pur- 
poses. 

Libraries  marked  with  $  are  United 
States  depository  libraries ;  those  marked 
with  §  are  depositories  for  the  Official 
Gazette  of  the  Patent  Office  ;  those  marked 
with  ||  are  geological  depositories ;  those 
marked  with  J  are  Library  of  Congress 
card  depositories.  This  information  was 
revised  in  March,  1916. 

Branches  of  the  county  free  library  re- 
ceive supplementary  library  service  from 
the  State  Library  free  of  transportation 
charges  with  the  exception  of  those 
branches  where  the  name  is  in  italic. 
When  the  branch  has  a  reading  room,  it 
is  indicated  by  r.r.  in  the  list  of  branches 
under  county  free  library. 

The  months  are  abbreviated  as  follows : 


January  Ja 
February  F 
March  Mr 
April  Ap 
May  My 
June  Je 


July  Jl 
August  Ag 
September  S 
October  O 
November  N 
December  D 


Statistics  are  printed  for  the  quarter. 
In  order  that  the  figures  for  circulation 
may  be  uniform,  current  magazines  are 
included  in  the  total  whether  reported 
that  way  or  not. 

An  effort  is  being  made  to  have  the 
statistics  uniform  in  reference  to  number 
of  branches.  Any  distributing  point 
through  which  service  is  given  directly 
from  headquarters  is  counted  as  a  branch. 
For  example,  in  a  school  with  several 
class  rooms,  if  service  is  given  directly  to 
each  class  room  separately,  each  room 
served  is  counted  as  a  branch.  But,  on 
the  other  hand,  if  a  school  district  has 
joined  and  both  school  and  community 
service  are  given  from  one  location,  such 
service  is  counted  as  two  branches. 

Blanks  for  October,  November  and 
December  statistics  were  sent  to  all  li- 
braries, except  county  teachers'  libraries. 


in  December.  Statistics  for  county  teach- 
ers' libraries  were  taken  from  the  annual 
reports  of  county  superintendents  of 
schools  on  file  in  the  office  of  the  State 
Superintendent  of  Public  Instruction. 

There  are  in  California  88  county  free 
libraries  (35  iu  operation)  ;  3  library  dis- 
trict libraries ;  4  high  school  district  li- 
braries ;  134  libraries  supported  by  city 
taxation  ;  55  towns  or  districts  with  free 
public  libraries  that  are  included  in 
county  free  library  service  (23  under  sec. 
3;  IS  under  sec.  16;  14  under  Pol.  C. 
sec.  4041)  ;  66  law  libraries,  of  which  55 
are  county  law  libraries ;  58  county  teach- 
ers' libraries  ;  357  libraries  in  educational 
institutions,  of  which  6  are  universities, 
7  colleges,  S  normal  schools,  271  public 
high  schools,  65  private  schools  and  other 
institutions ;  45  miscellaneous  institution 
libraries  and  66  association  or  society 
libraries ;  33  subscription  libraries.  In 
connection  with  the  above  libraries  are 
2444  branches  and  deposit  stations. 

There  are  175  library  buildings,  of 
which  157  were  gifts,  and  of  these  gifts 
144  are  from  Andrew  Carnegie. 

As  the  libraries  are  listed  under  coun- 
ties, the  following  alphabetical  list  by

SAN   FRANCISCO— Continued. 

Other  features  also  supplementary  to 
the  service  of  other  libraries  of  California 
are  to  be  added.  For  example,  the  Sutro 
Branch  has  offered  to  act  as  a  depository 
for  the  publications  of  California  pub- 
lishers. The  response  to  this  invitation 
has  been  most  enthusiastic  and  shows 
that  the  publishers  will  make  this  plan  a 
success.  The  publications  thus  deposited 
will  be  for  the  reference  use  of  those 
considering  purchase  and  also  for  infor- 
mation in  reference  to  the  work  of  the 
California    publishers. 

The  California  Genealogical  Society  is 
considering  depositing  its  Library  in  the 
Sutro  Branch  and  several  individual 
owners  of  private  genealogical  collections 
are  also  planning  to  deposit.  If  this  is 
done,  further  plans  will  be  carried  out 
toward  making  the  Branch  the  head- 
quarters for  information  about  the  loca- 
tion of  genealogical  material  in  the  state. 

Another  plan  is  that  important  Cali- 
fornia historical  material  that  is  in  San 
Francisco  and  vicinity  be  located  and 
gathered  in  when  possible  in  order  to 
have  it  in  fireproof  quarters  and  in  that 
way  be  sure  that  it  is  preserved  for  the 
present  and  future  student  of  California 
history.  Charles  B.  Turrill  has  been 
engaged  to  take  charge  of  this  part  of 
the  work  of  the  Branch. 

The  blind  borrowers  in  San  Francisco 
are  invited  to  telephone  their  requests 
for  embossed  books  to  the  Branch  (West 
3046)  and  these  requests  will  be  imme- 
diately forwarded  to  the  State  Library 
in  Sacramento  for  attention.
