[Jan.,  1924 


A  CHILDREN'S  BOOK  WEEK  PARTY. 


By  Frances  Burkbt,  Librarian 

"Fools  rush  in  where  angels  fear  to 
tread."  During  the  days  preceding 
Children's  Book  Week,  my  assistant  and 
I  felt  that  these  words  had  been  written 
expressly  for  us.  The  book  party  grew 
out  of  a  desire  to  do  something  for  the 
children  that  would  increase  their  inter- 
est in  books  and  at  the  same  time  be  a 
bit  out  of  the  ordinary.  We  have  had 
book  talks,  essays  and  book  displays 
every  year,  and  while  the  results  have 
always  been  gratifying,  we  longed  to  do 
something  different.     We  did. 

In  a  moment  of  mental  aberration  we 
decided  on  a  party,  the  guests  to  be  the 
children  from  all  parts  of  the  county.  I 
explained  my  plans — Avhich  were  very 
meager  at  this  stage — to  the  general 
supervisor  and  asked  her  cooperation. 
Her  report  after  visiting  several  schools 
was  terrifying,  for  we  thought  that  if  we 
could  interest  sixty  or  seventy  children 
in  the  plan,  we  would  do  well.  We  issued 
invitations  to  every  elementary  school, 
whether  or  not  it  was  cooperating  with 
the  county  library.  Every  child  was  re- 
quested to  come  dressed  to  represent  some 
character  from  a  book  he  had  read,  and 
was  to  be  prepared  to  tell  the  story. 

As  the  library  was  too  small  to  accom- 
modate our  guests,  we  asked  permission 
to  use  the  Woman's  Club  Room,  thinking 
this  would  be  large  enough.  As  our 
acceptances  poured  in,  we  were  driven  to 
hunt  still  larger  quarters.  My  assistant 
came  to  the  rescue  with  the  idea  of  hold- 
ing the  party  in  the  open,  which  would 
be  ideal  providing  the  weather  was  fine. 
The  spot  selected  was  in  an  oak  grove  at 
the  edge  of  town  and  afforded  plenty  of 
space  for  games  and  contests.  There  was 
only  one  drawback  and  that  was  the 
weather.  It  was  cold  and  looked  like 
'■ain,  but  the  Fates  were  on  our  side  for 
November  11th  proved  one  of  the  most 
delightful  days  of  the  Fall. 

Our  invitations  read  "from  two  to 
four  in  the  afternoon"  but  when  we 
arrived  at  the  clubroom  before  one 
o'clock  of  the  eventful  day,  we  were 
greeted  by  a  witch,  the  queen  of  hearts 
and  several  other  celebrities.  They  en- 
tertained themselves  by  looking  at  the 
Kook  Week  posters  we  had  arranged  in 


,  Amador  County  Free  Library. 

the  room.  These  had  been  made  by  the 
children  in  the  rural  schools  and  were 
most  attractive.  By  two  o'clock  over  a 
hundred  and  twenty-five  children,  be- 
sides teachers,  mothers  and  fathers,  had 
arrived. 

I  had  pressed  the  Boy  Scouts  into 
service  and  they  were  all  present  in  full 
uniform.  We  wished  to  observe  Armis- 
tice Day  in  .some  manner,  so  the  patrol 
leader  gave  a  short  talk  on  the  meaning 
of  the  holiday  and  led  the  audience  in 
the  salute  to  the  flag.  After  this  each 
child  in  turn  walked  to  the  center  of  the 
room  and  the  rest  guessed  the  character 
represented.  Only  one  from  each  school 
told  his  story  for  the  time  wa.s  limited. 
It  was  splendid  to  see  how  the  children 
entered  into  the  spirit  of  the  affair  and 
without  a  great  amount  of  trouble  had 
made  costumes  which  could  be  easily 
recognized  as  belonging  to  some  well 
known  book  character. 

They  were  all  there  from  the  elaborate 
Ozma  of  Oz — in  trailing  white  and  glit- 
tering tinsel — to  the  little  Austrian  girl 
(her  father  was  one  of  the  victims  of 
the  Argonaut  disaster)  who  came  dressed 
in  a  clean  gingham  dress,  but  told  me  she 
was  "the  little  white  rabbit."  The  Old- 
Fashioned  Girl,  Rebecca  of  Sunnybrook 
Farm,  Helen's  Babies,  Jack  the  Giant 
Killer,  the  Gingerbread  Boy,  a  Signer  of 
the  Declaration  of  Independence,  Dr. 
Doolittle  and  dozens  of  other  favorites 
made  their  bow  to  the  audience. 

At  the  request  of  the  business  men  and 
other  grown-ups,  we  formed  a  procession 
and  marched  through  Main  street  out  to 
the  grove.  The  formation  was  unique. 
At  the  head  of  the  procession  rode  the 
Knight  of  the  X  Bar  B.  Following  him 
came  the  drum  corps,  next  the  Boy 
Scouts,  then  by  twos  the  rest  of  the  com- 
pany. We  gathered  more  children  as  we 
went  through  the  streets,  so  that  by  the 
time  we  arrived  at  our  destination,  we 
had  a  much  larger  crowd  than  when  we 
started. 

For  an  hour,  games  were  played  and 
later  refreshments  of  ice-cream  cones, 
cookies  and  candy  were  served.  It  was 
after  four  o'clock  when  the  first  guests 
left,  and  by  five  the  hostesses  had  gathered 


vol.  19,  no.  1]  A  children's  book  week  party. 


up  the  remains  of  the  feast  and  departed 
for  their  homes. 

Apart  from  the  social  side  of  the 
affair,  which  alone  was  worth  the  trouble, 
the  book  party  accomplished  the  very 
thing  we  had  hoped  for.  Increased  inter- 
est in  reading  more  and  better  books  was 
noticeable  in  the  towns,  hut  the  results 
were  more  gratifying  in  some  of  the 
rural  districts.  One  teacher  brought  four 
of  her  pupils  in  a  Ford  over  many  miles 
of  rough  roads.  This  was  the  fir.st  time 
these  children  had  been  outside  their  com- 


munity. They  visited  the  library  before 
they  went  home  and  chose  the  books  they 
wanted  from  the  shelves.  Prior  to  this 
there  had  been  practically  no  home 
reading  done  in  that  school,  but  since 
that  time  we  have  sent  them  several 
shipments.  This  is  but  one  of  several 
instances. 

It  seemed  a  big  undertaking,  but  i; 
really  proved  a  success  from  every  stand- 
point, and  the  next  one — for  there  will 
be  another  as  the  children  have  asked  for 
one  next  year — will  not  be  such  an  effort, 
for  we  have  a  basis  on  which  to  work.

During  the  quarter  the  principal  item 
of  interest  was  the  book  review  contest 
held  as  a  feature  of  Children's  Book 
Week.  The  Board  of  Library  Trustees 
offered  three  prizes,  each  a  beautiful 
book,  one  to  the  sixth,  one  to  tlie  seventh, 
and  one  to  the  eighth  grade  pupils  for  the 
best  book  re^^ews  submitted. 

The  school  department,  under  the  direc- 
tion of  Superintendent  of  Schools  C.  J. 
Du  Four,  assisted  in  every  possible  way. 
On  the  Friday  evening  of  Book  Week,  an 
entertainment  yras  held  at  the  Main  Li- 
brary with  about  300  children  in  attend- 
ance. The  successful  competitors  read 
their  reviews  after  which  the  prizes  were 
awarded.  The  contest  did  so  much  to 
stimulate  interest  m  children's  reading 
that  it  will  probably  become  a  yearly 
feature  of  our  work.

Public  Health  Library.  Marion  H. 
Clark,  Lib'n.     Est.  1923. 

The  library  is  located  in  the  Ethel 
Moore  Memorial  Building  near  the  Mu- 
nicipal Auditorium  in  Oakland.  It  is 
organized  as  one  of  the  activities  of  the 
Health  Education  Department  of  the 
Public  Health  Center  of  Alameda 
County.  Its  purpose  is  to  serve  those  in 
Alameda  County  who  are  interested  in 
public  health. 

The  library  was  started  a  year  ago  as 
a  part  time  service  and  is  open  from  2-5 
week  day  afternoons  and  from  10-12 
Saturday  mornings.  It  is  under  the  gen- 
eral   supervision    of    Dr.    Alvin    Powell,

Director  of  the  Public  Health  Center,  and 
Miss  Mary  Preston,  Secretary  of  Health 
Education,  and  I  am  the  only  employee 
with  the  exception  of  a  college  student 
who  assists,  with  the  mechanical  work. 
Miss  Mary  Barmby,  County  Librarian, 
has  adopted  the  library  as  a  sort  of  step- 
child and  has  been  very  helpful  with 
advice  and  assistance.  The  library  is 
maintained  by  the  Public  Health  Center, 
which  is  a  county  institution,  but  as  a 
part  of  the  Health  Education  Depart- 
ment it  receives  assistance  from  the 
Community   Chest. 

As  to  the  services  rendered  :  The  library 
contains  at  present  362  books  on  public 
health  topics,  as  General  Public  Health, 
Child  and  Maternal  Hygiene,  Personal 
Hygiene,  Mental  Hygiene,  Communicable 
Diseases,  Poods  and  Nutrition,  etc.  In 
purchasing  the  books  the  bibliography  on 
public  health  issued  last  spring  by  the 
National  Health  Council  was  used  as  a 
basis  for  selection  and  all  the  books 
recommended  were  purchased  with  the 
exception  of  a  few  technical  volumes.  To 
this  nucleus  have  been  and  are  being 
added  books  which  are  carefully  chosen 
on  authoritative  recommendations.  In 
addition  to  the  books  we  have  about  1000 
pamphlets  arranged  in  two  files,  a  sub- 
ject file  and  a  source  and  information  file. 
The  collections  are  designed  to  give  in- 
formation in  recent  pamphlet  form  on 
public  health  topics  and  to  show  what 
material  can  be  obtained  from  the  various 
health  and  welfare  organizations,  national 
and  local.  On  the  magazine  table  are 
displayed  current  numbers  of  all  the 
leading  public  health  and  welfare  maga- 
zines and  bulletins,  some  forty  coming 
to  the  library  each  month.  Books, 
pamphlets  and  magazines  all  circulate. 

In  addition  to  these  usual  library  ser- 
vices the  Public  Health  Librai-y  has  a 
portable  motion  picture  machine  and 
three  films,  a  balopticon  and  a  collection 
of  lantern  slides,  a  set  of  food  models,  a 
collection  of  anatomical  models  and 
charts,  and  a  collection  of  nearly  200 
posters.  All  of  this  material  is  loaned 
for  lectures,  exhibits  and  classroom  use. 

The  library  is  open  to  any  interested 
resident  of  Alameda  County.  School 
teachers,    school   nurses,    visiting    nurses, 


ALAMEDA  CO.— Continued.

social  workers,  mothers,  university  and 
high  school  students,  grade  pupils,  parent- 
teacher  associations  and  mothers'  clubs 
are  all  numbered  among  our  borrowers. 
The  library  is  being  used  more  and  more 
each  month  as  the  public  health  workers 
discover  what  very  real  help  we  can  give 
them,  and  it  is  the  hope  of  the  Public 
Health  Center  that  the  Public  Health 
Library  may  be  an  influence  for  better 
public  health  in  Alameda  County.

The  annual  Custodians'  Meeting  was 
held  in  the  Branch  Department  at  the 
main  library  on  October  31st,  beginning 
at  ten  o'clock.  There  were  twenty-two 
custodians  and  the  entire  staff  from  the 
main  library  in  attendance.  Miss  Mc- 
Cardle presided  and  made  the  opening 
address,  introducing  the  new  custodians 
and  calling  the  roll  of  all  present  so  that 
everyone  would  feel  acquainted.  The 
rest  of  the  morning  was  taken  up  with 
short  talks  bj^  members  of  the  staff  on 
different  phases  of  the  work,  followed  by 
open  discussions  on  each.  Luncheon  was 
served  at  the  library  by  the  staff,  all  re- 
maining to  meet  the  visitors  and  get  in 
closer  touch  during  this  social  hour. 
After  luncheon  Miss  Yager,  Children's 
Librarian,  gave  a  talk  on  her  work.  Miss 
Newcomet,  Reference  Librarian,  reviewed

one  of  the  new  books  on  biography.  She 
was  followed  by  Miss  Essae  Culver,  Li- 
brarian of  Merced  County  and  President 
of  the  Fourth  District  of  the  California 
Library  Association,  who  gave  a  most 
inspiring  talk.  Miss  Culver  made  every- 
one feel  that  her  work,  no  matter  how 
small,  was  a  very  valuable  part  of  the 
whole  scheme  of  county  library  service. 
The  meeting  closed  with  talks  by  the 
custodians  on  the  ways  they  are  em- 
ploying to  attract  the  people  to  the 
library. 

Children's  Book  Week  was  observed 
November  11th  to  the  18th  in  all  the 
larger  branches  and  a  good  many  schools. 
A  book  contest  was  held  in  the  upper 
grades,  each  grade  having  a  problem 
which  included  an  essay  about  some  char- 
acter in  one  of  the  books  read.  There 
were  many  essays  sent  in  and  the  prizes 
of  illustrated  books  have  been  awarded 
to  three  children  and  honorable  mention 
to  three  others.  The  week  was  observed 
in  different  ways  in  the  branches,  b,y 
book  displays  in  conspicuous  places, 
visits  to  the  schools,  story  hours,  etc. 

Christmas  was  celebrated  in  several  of 
the  larger  branches.  Fresno  had  a  large 
tree  in  the  main  reading  room,  the  gift 
of  one  of  the  lumber  companies.  At 
Sanger  Branch  there  was  a  tree  for  the 
story  hour  children  in  the  children's 
room  on  the  Saturday  before  Christmas. 
Christmas  stories  were  told  and  each 
child  received  a  gift.  Reedley  Branch 
also  had  a  tree  donated  and  decorated  by 
some  of  the  interested  people  of  the  town. 
At  the  main  library  the  staff  enjoyed  a 
tree  of  their  own.  The  party  was  held 
in  the  big  room  downstairs  and  each  one 
received  a  gift,  generally  a  joke  on  the 
recipient.  After  the  distribution  of  the 
gifts   the  staff  had  luncheon  together. 

Hopewell  School  District  and  Butler 
School  District  have  suspended  this  year. 
Lerona  District,  which  Avas  served  last 
year  as  an  emergency  school,  is  now  an 
independent  school  and  has  joined  the 
library.  Las  Deltas,  a  new  district,  has 
also  come  in.  We  are  now  serving  two 
emergency  schools,  the  Nutritional  Home 
and  the  Chiwanakee  School. 

The  work  having  been  completed  at 
some  of  the  lower  camps  of  the  Southern

The  Glenn  County  Library  this  year 
held  during-  Children's  Book  Week  attrac- 
tive exhibits  of  new  juvenile  books,  in 
Bayliss,  Hamilton  City  and  Orland 
branches  and  at  the  Main  Office  in  Wil- 
lows. A  story  hour  was  held  for  the 
children  in  each  of  these  branches  by 
Martha  June  Coleman,  of  the  County 
Library  Staff.  At  Bayliss  and  Hamilton 
City  the  children  came  to  the  library 
during  school  hours  with  their  teachers. 
At  Orland  a  general  invitation  was  ex- 
tended to  the  children  of  the  3d,  4th,  5th 
and  Gth  grades.  At  the  hours  appointed 
the  Library  was  filled  to  the  brim  with 
eager  boys  and  girls.  To  judge  from  the 
enthusiasm  of  children  and  custodians 
these  story  hours  were  a  great  success. 

December  3d  the  Librarian  read  a 
paper  on  some  of  the  new  books  of  the 
season  before  the  Monday  Afternoon 
Club  of  Willows. 

The  County  Library  Branch  at  Artois 
has  been  reopened  in  an  attractive  library 
room  at  the  grammar  school,  with  Mr 
Stanley  Thompson  as  custodian.  Mrs 
W.  W.  Koehler  is  the  new  custodian  at 
Ord  Branch. 

The  staff  of  the  Library  is  each  week 
arranging  an  attractive  window  display 
for  the  main  office  in  Willows ;  Miss 
Coleman  supplies  the  newspapers  of  the 
county  with  reviews,  etc.,  of  the  books 
thus  displayed.  The  many  requests  re- 
ceived for  these  books  prove  again  that 
■'it  pays  to  advertise."

The  following  interesting  account  of 
the  use  of  some  pictures,  borrowed  from 
the  State  Library  by  the  Lassen  County 
Free  Library,  is  taken  from  a  letter  from 
Miss  Martin,  dated  December  18.  1923  : 

"We  borrowed  the  pictures,  of  course, 
especially  for  the  art  class  as  a  treat. 
Tlie  class  consists  of  eleven  members  who 
meet  in  our  office  each  Monday  afternoon.

LASSEN    CO.— Continued. 

We  have  never  had  less  than  seven  in 
attendance  and  usually  have  nine  or  ten. 
We  feel  very  much  encouraged  because 
the  members  are  not  only  very  much  in- 
terested but  also  are  studious.  We  have 
been  growing  gradually  and  so  far  no 
member  has  withdrawn.  We  have  been 
holding  the  class  regularly  since  October 
1.  and  have  finished  the  artists  on  the 
H.  W.  Wilson  Study  Outline  on  Italian 
Art,  through  the  loth  century. 

The  pictures  have  been  a  great  help 
and  inspiration  to  the  class,  especially 
during  the  two  lessons  in  which  we 
studied  them  intensively.  The  members 
have  come  in  also  during  the  week  to 
study  the  pictures,  as  well  as  the  gen- 
eral public.  The  most  interesting  people 
who  came  to  see  them  were  twenty  high 
school  girls  and  their  teacher.  Only  four 
of  them  did  not  seem  to  be  interested. 
The  pupils  came  in  small  numbers  dur- 
ing their  study  periods.  To  the  pupils 
interested,  we  gave  a  short  sketch  of  each 
picture.  Some  of  these  pupils  came  a 
second   time."

During  this  quarter  .$156,000,  being 
proceeds  from  the  sale  of  library  bonds 
chiefly  to  the  local  Fire  and  Police  Pen- 
sion Fund,  has  been  made  available.  A 
portion  of  this  will  be  applied  on  the 
grading  contract  of  the  new  Central  Li- 
brary building  which  has  already  been 
started. 

The  Library  Board  has  voted  to  extend 
the  present  lease  on  quarters  for  the  main 
library  in  the  Metropolitan  Building  at 
•5th  and  Broadway  for  another  three 
years  from  the  date  of  expiration,  which 
is  May  31,  1924,  but  has  reserved  the 
right  to  cancel  this  lease  any  time  after 
the  expiration  of  one  year. 

The  Board  has  entered  into  an  arrange- 
ment with  the  City  Council  for  the  use 
of   a   large   room   in    the   new   Municipal

Building-  at  Sawtelle,  construction  of 
wliicli  will  begin  soon.  The  arrangement 
provides  that  the  Board  shaii  pay  a 
monthly  rental  and  equip  the  room  with 
necessary  furniture  while  the  city  meets 
all  other  expenses. 

Miss  Aline  Barnsdall  has  offered  to 
the  city  her  magnificent  estate  on  tlie 
summit  of  Olive  Hill  at  the  corner  of 
Vermont  Avenue  and  Hollywood  Boule- 
vard. This  includes  nearly  eight  acres 
of  ground  which  is  intended  as  a  park, 
and  her  residence  designed  by  the  famous 
architect,  Mr  Frank  Dloyd  Wright.  She 
wishe-s  this  residence  to  be  maintained  by 
the  I'ublic  Librarj'  for  the  people  of  the 
neighborhood.  Negotiations  are  under 
way  between  Miss  Barnsdall,  the  City 
Council,  the  Park  Commission  and  the 
Library  Board  which  it  is  hoped  will 
result  in  a  satisfactory  adjustment  of  all 
conditions  so  that  the  citizens  of  Los 
Angeles  will  be  in  full  enjoyment  of  Miss 
Barnsdall's  splendid  gift  not  later  than 
this  summer. 

Through  the  generosity  and  public 
spirit  of  Mr  F.  W.  Braun  the  Public 
Library  has  been  able  to  open  a  new 
branch  on  .59th  Street  near  Vermont 
Avenue.  Mr  Braun  has  placed  at  the 
disposal  of  the  library  two  of  his  store- 
rooms, rent  free  for  two  years,  and  has 
offered  to  contribute  $500  a  year  toward 
expen.ses.  The  Library  accepted  his  gift 
and  the  branch  was  opened  early  in 
December. 

The  branch  library  construction  pro- 
gram wa-s  almost  completed  during  this 
quarter  and  the  following  new  branches 
were  opened :  University  Branch,  at  the 
corner  of  34th  Street  and  University

and  Prescott  Court,  on  November  2;  and 
the  Edendale  Branch  at  2030  Glendale

exercises  were  conducted  by  the  Library 
Board  at  these  openings.

Seven  beautiful  bronze  tablets  have  re-

of  appreciation  of  seven  very  valuable 
collections  of  books  and  manuscripts,  that 
have  been  placed  with  the  Society  during 
the  past  few  years.  The  gifts  are  the 
following : 

In  1910  Gen.  John  Green  Ballance, 
U.  S.  A.,  of  Los  Angeles,  gift  of  Army 
records. 

In  1915  Capt.  Joseph  Davis,  of  Holly- 
wood, gift  of  New  England  and  other 
historical   records. 

In  1918,  a  large  number  of  members  of 
the  various  chapters  of  the  Daughters  of 
the  American  Revolution,  not  only  of 
California,  but  in  many  parts  of  the 
United  States,  began  to  give  valuable 
historical  and  genealogical  records  to  the 
library  of  the  California  Society.  This 
has  since  been  regularly  added  to. 

In  1920,  the  heirs  of  the  late  Hon. 
WUliam  Matthew  Marine  of  Baltimore, 
Maryland,  gave  a  valuable  collection  of 
historical  and  reference  works  on  the 
southern  states  and  on  the  civil  war. 

In  1921,  Warren  Chamberlain  Tudbury, 
of  Berkeley,  California,  his  entire  collec- 
tion of  valuable  genealogical  and  his- 
torical manuscripts  and  reference  works. 

In  1922,  Mrs  Elizabeth  K.  Hills,  of

able collection  of  her  late  brother,  Wil- 
lard  Aetherton  Nichols,  of  Redlands,  Cali-

to  whether  the  Society  will  accept  col-

surveys,  and  compilations  which  it  makes 
for  the  members  of  the  Chamber  as  well 
as  for  outside  inquirers  in  accordance 
with  the  best  library  practise. 

This  will  make  the  finding  of  all  data 
an  easy  matter  when  the  cataloging  of 
all  the  literature  in  the  Chamber's  files  is 
brought  into  one  uniform  system.  The 
library  contains  statistical  data  of  every 
sort,  covered  by  books,  pamphlets,  trade 
literature,  clippings,  maps,  charts,  etc.

Miss   Sarah  M.  Jacobus,  Lib'n. 

Miss  Beryl  Lewis  and  Miss  Violet 
Tapper  gave  lessons  in  the  use  of  the 
library  to  students  in  the  two  junior  high 
schools  in  November  and  December. 
These  lessons  were  given  in  the  English 
periods  at  the  school  buildings,  instead 
of  at  the  library  as  heretofore.  This 
was  at  the  request  of  the  teachers,  who 
had  found  class  trips  to  the  library  to 
consume  too  much  time.  Lessons  to  the 
lower  grades  ai'e  to  be  given  later  in  the 
year. 

Children's  Book  Week  was  observed  as 
usual.  The  novel  features  this  year  were 
a  table  of  good  juvenile  periodicals,  of 
inexpensive  editions,  of  Bible  stories  and 
editions  of  the  Bible  for  a  child's  own 
possession,  and  of  colored  prints  suitable 
for  a  child's  room,  but  very  inexpensive. 
Ten  inches  of  display  space  were  engaged 
in  each  new.spaper.  In  addition,  we  were 
given  a  generous  amount  of  space  for 
write-ups.  Probably  the  prints  and  the 
Bible    stories     were     the     most    popular

clubs,  but  we  found  that  newspaper  space 
was  better  advertising,  because  pro- 
grammes are  apt  to  be  so  crowded  that 
library  talks  must  be  condensed  almost 
to  invisibility. 

Miss  Emily  Heath  resigned  in  Decem-

of  Miss  Violet  R.  Tapper  (Riverside

It  is  with  pleasure  that  we  note  a  gain 
in  use  of  the  library  instead  of  the  de-

trip  was  made  on  horseback.  At  this 
time  the  branch  at  Lucia  was  officially 
closed  until  such  time  as  the  population 
of  the  district  would  again  warrant  its 
opening.  Miss  L.  M.  Harlan  has  been 
custodian  since  the  branch  wa-s  estab- 
lished in  1916.  The  Mansfield  School, 
which  has  been  suspended  for  a  number

Miss  Susan  T.  Smith,  Lib'n. 

Our  efforts  during  November  were  con- 
centrated on  Children's  Book  Week  and 
Education  Week  which  we  combined  in 
our  posters  and  publicity.  We  had  the 
usual  exhibits  of  books  for  parents  and 
children  to  look  over  until  after  Christmas 
and  many  gifts  were  selected  in  this  way. 
A  parade  of  the  "Best  sellers  of  long 
ago"  was  put  on  at  the  weekly  luncheon 
of  the  Ad  Club,  girls  from  the  county, 
state  and  city,  libraries  participating.  In 
choosing  the  characters  which  each  was 
to  represent,  their  likeness  to  the  originals 
was  used  as  the  basis  of  selection.  As 
each  book  was  taken  from  the  shelf  by 
the  Juvenile  Librarian  of  the  City  Li- 
brary, it  needed  no  printed  caption  for 
the  audience  to  recognize  old  favorites, 
so  excellent  was  the  makeup  of  each  one. 

An  entirely  voluntary  contribution  was 
made  to  the  week's  activities  by  the  David 
Lubin  School.  Under  the  direction  of  the 
teachers,  a  book  pageant  was  presented 
in  which  over  200  children  participated. 
Characters  from  Mother  Goose,  history 
and  literature,  legendary  heroes  and  hero- 
ines, fascinating  fairies  and  horrible  gob- 
lins, in  a  series  of  four  reels,  stepped 
through  the  pages  of  an  enormous  book, 
forming  a  colorful  picture  not  soon  to  be 
forgotten. 

These  two  events  gave  more  widespread 
publicity  to  the  purpose  of  the  week  than 
anything  we  have  done,  and  developed  a 
fine  spirit  of  civic  consciousness,  since 
they  brought  into  close  cooperation  the 
business  world,  the  home,  the  school  and 
the  library.

During  Children's  Book  Week,  Novem- 
ber 11  to  17,  there  were  special  displays 
of  recommended  books.  An  essay  contest 
was  held  in  the  4th,'  5th  audi  0th  grades 
of  the  city,  the  children  submitting  com- 
positions on  the  subject  "My  favorite 
book  and  why."  A  winner  from  all  the 
4th  grades,  from  all  the  5th  and  all  the 
6th  was  chosen  and  to  each  was  given  an 
illustrated  copy  of  the  book  about  which 
he  or  she  wrote.  On  Saturday  morning 
of  this  week  a  special  matinee  was  held 
at  one  of  the  local  theaters  and  the  pic- 
ture Huckleberry  Finn  was  shown.  About 
400  children  attended.  Talks  on  chil- 
dren's books  were  given  at  some  of  the 
clubs.  Special  emphasis  has  been  placed 
on  the  purchase  of  children's  books  and 
the  result  has  been  an  increased  interest 
in  the  children's  department.  There  have 
been  between  eighty  and  one  hundred 
children  present  at  story-hour  each  Satur- 
day ;  it  has  been  held  out  in  the  park 
every  Saturday  but  two  this  winter. 

Much  interest,  has  also  been  shown  in 
the  work  with  the  grade  schools  in  teach- 
ing the  children  the  use  of  the  library. 
For  two  months  three  grades  a  week  have 
been  coming  to  the  library  and  have 
received  instniction  under  Miss  Pew,  the 
Children's  Librarian.  A  new  deposit  sta- 
tion was  established  at  the  Lincoln  Gram- 
mar School,  making  a  total  of  four  schools

This  very  valuable  collection  of  books,

The  San  Diego  Public  Library  has  been 
allowed  by  the  city  council  a  budget  of 
7A  cents  on  each  $100  worth  of  property 
valuation  for  1924.  This  amounts  to 
$75,000.  Of  it  $50,000  is  to  be  spent  for 
salaries.  The  book  fund,  which  is  partly 
made  up  of  fines,  approximates  $12,000. 
The  periodical  fund,  including  magazines 
for  nine  branches  and  stations  as  well  as 
the  main  circulating  and  reference  collec- 
tions, is  $2000,  and  the  bindery  cTiarges 
are  $6000.

recently  been  filed  with  the  mayor  phowg

an  annual  circulation  of  919,104  books. 
This  is  a  per  capita  average  of  17.5  books 
a  year  for  each  registered  boiTower.  As 
our  increase  in  1923  was  nearly  10  per 
cent  over  the  total  circulation  of  1922, 
we  expect  to  reach  the  million  mark  in 
the  present  year. 

To  compare  our  records  today  with 
those  of  a  decade  ago  shows  that  in  1913 
each  book  issued  cost  the  taxpayer  12i 
cents,  while  last  year  the  cost  per  volume 
circulated  was  less  than  S  cents,  an  espe- 
cially encouraging  decrease  in  view  of  the 
fact  that  the  government  reports  an  aver- 
age rise  of  5tt  per  cent  in  the  cost  of  all 
commodities  in  the  last  ten  years. 

The  overcrowded  conditions  in  the  main 
libraiy  are  to  be  partially  relieved  the 
first  of  March  when  the  reading-room, 
children's  department  and  catalog  depart- 
ment are  to  be  moved  to  a  new  annex. 
They  will  occupy  the  entire  second  floor 
of  the  Streicher  Building,  diagonally 
across  E  street  from  the  main  library  at 
the  southwest  corner  of  Eighth  and  E 
streets.  They  have  been  secured  on  a 
three  years'  lease.  At  the  end  of  that 
time  we  optimistically  believe  that  bonds 
for  a  new  main  building  will  have  been 
achieved.  An  attempt  is  to  be  made  to 
put  the  library  bonds  on  the  ballot  at  the 
next  general  election,  in  March,  1925. 

Five  members  of  our  staff.  Miss  Peck, 
Miss  Woodworth,  Miss  Patridge,  Miss 
Dysart  and  Miss  Warren,  went  to  Alham- 
bra  for  the  Gth  district  meeting  of  the

Miss  Mary  Van  Wagenen,  who  has  been 
head  of  our  business  and  documents  de-

signed in  keeping  with  the  facade  of  the

located  on  either  side  of  the  main  entrance 
to  the  library,  have  three  exi>osures,  fac- 
ing respectively  the  street,  the  west  side- 
walk approach  and  the  east  sidewalk 
approach.  The  miniature  character  of 
the  structures  themselves  proves  an 
attraction. 

The  contents  are  automatically  re- 
newed, each  book,  when  called  for,  being 
replaced  by  another  at  the  time.  This 
keeps  the  display  continuously  fresh,  as

On  December  31  the  San  Luis  Chamber 
of  Commerce  staged  a  library  luncheon. 
A  delightful  program  of  music  and  recita- 
tion was  given,  after  which  Miss  Flo 
Gantz  told  of  library  service  in  the  county 
and  Mrs  E.  L.  Kellogg  gave  a  talk  on  the 
service  rendered  by  the  city  library.  It 
was  an  excellent  opportunity  for  the  best 
kind  of  library  publicity — ^talking  library 
before  the  business  men  of  the  community 
— and  good  results  have  been  noted. 

The  twelve-hour  service  inaugurated 
recently  is  proving  very  popular  and  is 
bringing  to  the  library  patrons  who  for- 
merly found  it  inconvenient  or  impossible 
to  avail  themselves  of  library  privileges. 

Just  before  Thanksgiving  the  librarian 
told  a  group  of  stories  appropriate  to  the 
holiday  to  a  large  audience  of  children 
at  the  Weekly  Bible  School  of  the  Presby- 
terian Church.  The  Saturday  after 
Thanksgiving  a  story  hour  was  held  at 
the  library  for  children  of  the  first, 
second,  and  third  grades.  Stories  were 
told  by  the  librarian  and  first  assistant 
and  were  greatly  enjoyed  by  a  good  sized 
audience.

Miss  Thelma  Brackett,  Lib'n. 

In  order  to  furnish  framed  pictures  to 
each  of  the  many  elementary  schoolrooms 
in  the  county,  the  help  of  manual  training- 
classes  of  various  schools  was  enlisted. 
The  first  set  of  twenty-five  frames,  made 
by  the  McCloud  High  School,  has  reached 
the  library.  The  Yreka  High  School  also 
is  making  twenty-five,  and  the  Weed 
Grammar  school  thirty-seven.  The  frames 
now  ready  are  of  oak,  very  well  made,  at 
a  cost  to  the  library  of  only  40  cents  a 
frame.  Thus  the  cooperation  of  the 
schools  is  a  great  aid  in  stretching  funds. 

The  county  librarian  in  December  had 
an  opportunity  to  drive  to  San  Francisco 
with  the  county  nurse.  En  route  she  had 
the  pleasure  of  visiting  the  Tehama  and 
Glenn  County  libraries,  and  the  State 
Library.

^Miss  Lambert  was  married  on  October  11 
to  Mr  Ross  Bundy. 

Before  the  holidays  Christmas  stories 
were  told,  as  in  previous  years,  at  the

In  October  the  Knights  Ferry  Branch

weather. 

On  December  6,  Crows  Landing  Branch 
moved  into  its  new  quarters  in  the  com-

Miss  Edith  Gantt,  Reference  and  Loan  ; 
Miss  Shearer,  Children's  department ;  Miss 
Ida  Huntington,  County  Branch  depart- 
ment. Miss  Silverthorn  concluded  the  talks 
with  an  account  of  what  people  are  read- 
ing in  Modesto  and  Stanislaus  County. 

The  leaflet,  "Service  to  Business  Folk," 
was  used  as  a  place  card  for  each  mem- 
ber, while  the  McCutcheon  cartoon. 
"Buried  Treasure  in  Public  Libraries,'" 
was  also  at  each  plate. 

The  Lions  expressed  themselves  as  hav-

DISTRICT  MEETINGS. 
First  District  Meeting. 

The  meeting  of  the  First  District  of  the 
California  Library  Association  in  Oak- 
land, on  November  17,  1923,  was  of  a 
"progressive"  nature,  the  guests  assem- 
bling at  the  Public  Museum  at  10  o'clock, 
proceeding  from  there  to  the  Snow 
Museum,  and  then  to  the  Hotel  Oakland 
for  luncheon  and  the  afternoon's  session. 

After  a  welcome  from  the  Mayor's 
Secretary,  the  moving  pictures  of  the 
H.  A.  Snow  African  Expedition  were 
shown  at  the  museum,  Mr  Snow  himself 
being  present  and  contributing  greatly  to 
the  enjoyment  of  the  guests  by  his 
explanations  and  reminiscences.  With 
interest  whetted  by  the  pictures,  the  dele- 
gates journeyed  to  the  Snow  Museum, 
where  Mr  Snow's  trophies  are  displaj-ed

in  a  most  attractivo  maniipr,  from  the 
skins  and  habitat  gronps  inside  the  build- 
ing:, to  tlie  animals  and  birds  wliich  dwell 
in  the  spacious  grounds,  presided  over  by 
the  two  lion  cubs  who  roared  a  greeting 
in  the  most  approved  fashion. 

A  short  walk  brought  the  company  to 
the  Hotel  Oakland,  where,  after  luncheon, 
the  afternoon  session  was  held  in  the  south 
room.  "Art  in  the  Library"  was  the  gen- 
eral sub.iect  of  the  meeting,  and  the  audi- 
ence was  again  treated  to  a  visual  exposi- 
tion of  the  topic  by  the  display  of  two 
beautiful  pictui'es  painted  by  Miss  Calthea 
Vivian,  an  artist  of  note,  who  was  the 
first  speaker.  After  a  brief  talk  on  mod- 
ern art,  which  she  has  recently  studied  in 
Europe,  Miss  Vivian  gave  the  audience  a 
bibliography  of  the  subject,  her  scholarly 
reviews  and  keen  comments  proving  so 
interesting  that  everyone  present  must 
have  resolved  not  only  to  purchase  all  of 
the  books  for  his  or  her  library,  but  to 
read  them  as  soon  as  possible.  A  second 
bibliography  covered  general  books  on  art 
appreciation,  especially  some  of  the  more 
recently  published  titles. 

Miss  Florence  Browne,  formerly  Chil- 
dren's Librarian  of  the  Oakland  Free 
Library,  led  the  discussion  of  the  next 
topic,  "The  circulation  of  art  books  and 
pictures  in  the  library."  Miss  Browne 
gave  a  histoi'y  and  description  of  the  Oak- 
land Library's  picture  collection,  which 
now  totals  more  than  70,000  pieces  and 
consists  of  mounted  pictures,  clippings, 
stereographs,  post  cards  and  posters.  Miss 
lone  Tucker,  Children's  Librarian  of  the 
Berkeley  Public  Library,  described  the 
picture  collection  on  file  there,  and  spoke 
of  its  growth  and  rapidly  increasing  use- 
fulness. The  San  Francisco  Public  Li- 
brary, Miss  E.  J.  Sturges  reported,  does 
not  have  a  picture  collection  at  present, 
but  books  and  magazines  are  indexed  by 
the  Reference  Department,  and  pictures 
on  many  subjects  thus  made  avaiilable. 
The  Alameda  Public  Librai-y  has  just 
started  a  picture  collection. 

Two  groups  of  songs  sung  by  Miss 
Beulah  Masterson  of  the  Fruitvale  Branch 
of  the  Oakland  Library  were  most  appro- 
priate additions  to  a  program  with  this 
subject,  being  beautiful  selections,  artisti- 
cally rendered. 

Reports  on  recent  and  interesting  events 
in  First  District  libraries  were  given  by 


representatives    from   each    library,    after 
which  the  meeting  adjourned. 

Lucie  C.  Nye,  Secretary. 

Second   District  Meeting. 

The  Second  District  meeting  of  the 
California  Library  Association  was  held 
at  Santa  Cruz  at  Casa  del  Rey  Hotel, 
November  17,  1923.  Upon  arrival  lunch- 
eon was  served  in  the  dining  room  or  the 
hotel.  The  guests  found  at  their  places 
charming  photographs  of  scenery  in  and 
about  Santa  Cruz,  autographed  by  the 
artist.  The  tables  were  most  artistically 
decorated  with  baskets  of  zinnias  and 
autumn  foliage.  Mr  Samuel  Leask  made 
a  few  remarks  of  welcome. 

After  the  luncheon  the  meeting  was 
called  to  order  by  Miss  Norah  McNeill, 
the  president  of  the  district.  Chairs  were 
grouped  around  the  piano  in  the  lobby  of 
the  hotel.  Mr  Kunitz  delighted  the  audi- 
tors with  a  solo,  very  graciously  respond- 
ing to  an  encore. 

Karl  x^dams.  Superintendent  of  Schools 
of  Santa  Ciiiz,  took  for  the  subject  of  his 
address,  "Books  and  a  child,"  in  which  he 
gave  some  pleasant  reminiscences  of  his 
own  reading  as  a  child.  His  talk  covered 
a  wide  range,  dealing  with  the  child's 
reading,  the  work  with  the  schools,  the 
advantages  that  teachers  may  have  in 
what  is  offered  the  schools  by  the  library, 
and  the  desirability  of  closer  cooperation 
between  the  library  workers  and  teachers 
as  many  of  their  problems  are  basically 
the  same. 

Mrs  Coates  of  Santa  Cruz  gave  two 
readings — a  humorous  monologue  and  a 
poem,  "Home,"  by  Edgar  Guest. 

The  subject  of  Children's  Book  Week  in 
rural  communities  was  taken  up,  Mrs  A. 
G.  AVhitbeck,  of  Contra  Costa  County 
Free  Libiary,  leading.  Miss  Mary  Barmby, 
of  Alameda  County  Free  Library,  reported 
that  with  the  cooperation  of  the  Superin- 
tendent of  Schools  the  teachers  were 
directed  to  have  the  childreia  make  posters 
for  each  of  their  branch  libraries  to  be 
sent  later  to  the  county  office  for  judging 
and  public  notice.  Books  were  shown  in 
nine  branches  and  story  hours  held  in  five 
and  book  lists  sent  to  each  branch. 

Miss  Stella  Huntington,  of  Santa  Clara 
County  Free  Library,  reported  that  they 
sent  out  collections  of  books  to  four  large 
branches,  a  copy  of  the  "Bookshelf"  to  all 
branches   and  schools   and   maintained   in

tlae  main  library  an  exhibit  of  books, 
featuring  the  moderately  priced  book. 
Miss  Anne  Hadden,  of  Monterey  County 
Free  LibraiT,  reported  through  Miss 
Esther  R.  Ross  that  they  celebrated  the 
week  rather  early  at  Santa  Oruz  at  the 
Teacher's  Institute.  They  showed  both 
the  old  classics  and  the  newer  and  cheaper 
editions.  Miss  McNeill  explained  the 
book-week  contest  as  conducted  by  iie 
library  and  the  schools  in  Richmond. 

Mrs  Whitbeck  told  of  her  program  which 
was  extended  over  the  entire  month  of 
November  and  in  which  she  visited  as 
many  clubs  and  P.  T.  A.  meetings  as  she 
could,  speaking  sometimes  both  afternoon 
and  evening.  She  carried  about  200  books, 
showing  the  vei-y  lovely  new  editions  as 
well  as  the  moderately  priced  book.  In 
addition  copies  of  the  '"Bookshelf"  were 
distributed  to  parents  and  teachers. 

H.  O.  Parkinson,  of  Stockton  Public 
Library,  talked  of  his  many  novel  ways 
of  advertising.  Among  them  were  the  pay- 
ing of  a  man  ($3.00)  to  distribute  leaflets 
not  only  to  houses  but  to  lodges,  lunch 
rooms,  etc.,  placing  them  in  hat  bands 
and  pockets  when  possible.    How  he  adver- 


tised by  mail,  by  collecting  lists  of  pros- 
pects from  school,  chamber  of  commerce 
lists,  etc. ;  checking  these  with  the  bor- 
rower's file  and  then  sending  only  to  non- 
borrowers.  Practically  10  i)er  cent  re- 
sponded to  their  mail  list.  He  advocated 
the  use  of  the  book  plate  as  a  source  of 
information  instead  of  for  the  printing  of 
rules.  Tliey  have  a  column  in  the  news- 
paper under  the  caption,  "Under  the  read- 
ing lamp."  Telephoning  to  children  proved 
very  effective.  They  did  this  for  t^vo 
hours  each  Saturday  for  ten  weeks  and 
reached  237  children.  About  70  per  cent 
responded.  A  home  reading  scene  was 
staged  at  the  county  fair.  There  seems 
to  be  no  end  to  the  novel  and  original  ways 
of  advertising  that  Mr  Parkinson  has 
devised.  In  each  case  he  was  able  to  show 
results. 

A  few  of  the  librarians  who  waited  for 
a  later  train  were  treated  to  a  wonderful 
drive  with  Miss  Doeltz  over  the  residen- 
tial district.  The  views  at  many  points 
were  marvelous  and  left  a  very  lovely 
impression  of  the  town  and  its  setting.

it  is  here  passed  on  :

Hon.  Mu.ton  J.  Fergu.son. 

State   Librarian, 

Sacramento,  California. 
My  Deak  Mr  Ferguson  : 

I  have  sent  out  many  an  inquiry  and 
questionnaire,  but  in  all  my  life  I  have 
never  had  such  a  generous  resiwnse  as  the 
response  that  has  come  from  the  librarians 
from  the  county  libraries  of  California. 

It  is  a  remarkable  illustration  of  the 
generous  largeness  of  California,  which 
means  the  generous  largeness  of  your 
people.  The  librarians  have  not  only 
sent  printed  materials  in  great  abundance, 
but  they  have  taken  the  pains  to  write 
letters  giving  minute  details  regarding 
their  work. 

In  my  career  it  is  all  unexampled.  \\"e 
are  grateful  to  you  for  your  good  letter 
and  for  the  materials  you  send. 

We  are  organizing  Study  Centers  for 
teachers  in  the  counties  throughout  the 
state.  The  movement  is  marvelous.  The 
Study  Center,  of  course,  is  the  first  step 
toward  a  covinty  library.  California's 
example  will  be  of  incalculable  service. 

We  are  grateful  to  you,  to  your  libra- 
rians and  to  the  great  people  you  rep- 
resent. 

Ever  with  best  wishes, 
Sincerely  yours,

December,  1921.  (Cii'cular  of  informa- 
tion only.)  The  fourth  edition  of  the

CALIFORNIA  STATE  LIBRARY. 


The  bill  establishing  the  California 
State  Library  was  signed  by  Governor 
Peter  H.  Burnett,  January  24.   1S50. 

California  State  Library  School  was 
established  bv  resolution  adopted  Sep- 
tember 4.  1913. 

California  State  Library  School  was 
discontinued  by  motion  adopted  May  22, 
1920. 

Annual   income   for  1923-24,  .$101,605. 

Total  accessions  248,164  (less  3239  lost 
and  discarded  =  244,925)  exclusive  of 
15,723  accessions  in  Books  for  the  Blind 
Department  and  of  the  Sutro  Branch  in 
San  Francisco  (estimated  at  about

posits). 

FORMER  TRUSTEES. 

During  the  past  few  months  two  former 
members  of  the  Board  of  Trustees  of  the 
State  Library  have  died.  Judge  W.  C. 
Van  Fleet,  who  passed  aAvay  on  Septem- 
ber 3,  192.3,  found  time  iu  a  very  busy 
life  to  serve  the  state  as  trustee  from  1900 
to  1912.  Mr  R.  M.  Richardson,  who  died 
on  November  IS,  1923,  became  a  member 
of  the  board  iu  1910  and  continued  to 
serve  until  the  board  was  abolished  by 
legislative  action  in  1921.  These  two 
men  gave  unsparingly  to  the  state  of  the 
high  judicial  and  economic  qualities  which 
marked  their  life-work  on  the  bench  and 
in  the  counting-house.  Even  after  they 
had  retired  as  officers  of  the  State  Library, 
their  interest  in  its  development  remained 
unabated,  and  their  counsel  might  freely  be 
had.

ticipated as  a  member  of  the  Sacramento 
State  Buildings  Commission. 

Mr  Ferguson  made  a  trip  to  Utah  early

Francisco  on  November  8,  giving  a  history 
of  the  State  Libraiy  Avith  special  em-

ing of  the  County  and  City  Superintend- 
ents of  Schools  held  in  Riverside  in  Octo- 
ber. While  on  the  trip  she  visited  several 
county  libraries. 

Miss  Gillis  attended  a  meeting  of  the 
Executive  Committee  of  the  California

ber 22.  On  the  previous  day  she  attended 
a  social  meeting  of  the  Pasadena  Library

at  a  meeting  of  the  Custodians  of  Kern 
County  Free  Library  branches,  held  at 
the  courthouse  in  Bakersfield. 

Miss  Mumm  represented  the  Library  at 
tJie  meeting  of  the  First  District  of  the 
California  Library  Association  at  Oakland 
on  November  17. 


Miss  Susan  T.  Smith,  librarian  of  the 
Sacramento'  City  Library,  assisted  by  girls 
of  her  staff,  of  the  Sacramento  County 
Library  staff  and  by  Miss  Alice  Chenu, 
Miss  Angelina  Grant  and'  Miss  Alice  Miller 
of  the  State  Librai"y,  put  on  a  program 
in  celebration  of  Children's  Book  Week 
before  the  Sacramento  Ad  Club  on  Novem- 
ber 13.  The  g'irls  in  appropriate  costume 
took  part  in  a  "Parade  of  the  best  sellers 
of  years  ago."  This  was  repeated  later 
for  the  Soroptomist  Club  and  on  Novem- 
ber 23  it  was  given  for  the  State  Library 
staff  meeting. 

The  staff  had  a  Christmas  party  on 
December  19.  A  vaudeville  perfoi*mance, 
with  an  old-fashioued  minstrel  parade  and 
setting,  furnished  the  entertainment,  while 
a  beautifully  decorated  tree  and  refresh- 
ments appropriate  to  the  season  gave  the 
Christmas  touches. 

It  becomes  necessary  to  record  that  the 
State  Library  has  had  the  experience  of 
having  to  bring  charges  of  insubordination 
against  a  member  of  its  staff,  before  the 
State  Civil  Service  Commission,  of  going 
through  a  trial,  ami,  in  the  end,  of  drop- 
ping the  defendant  from  its  roster.  This 
sort  of  thing  is  not  common  in  the  library 
profession,  because,  no  doubt,  of  the  high 
ethical  standards  of  library  assistants, 
which  would  ordinarily  move  them  either 
to  work  in  harmony  with  their  chief,  or 
else  decently  to  resign. 

When  Mrs  Suggett  was  dropped  from 
the  staff  of  the  State  Library  June  1, 
1923,  Miss  Ruth  McLaughliu,  who  for 
several  years  had  been  a  member  of  our 
Sutro  Brancli  staff,  was  made  assistant 
in  charge.  It  became  evident,  after  a 
little  while,  that  she  was  more  responsive 
to  the  former  branch  iibrarian  than  she 
was  to  the  State  Librarian.  As  a  matter 
of  protection  of  the  interests  of  both  the 
State  Librai-y  and  also  of  Miss  McLaugh- 
lin hei'self — 'though  quite  obviously  she 
did  not  appreciate  the  thought  given  to 
her  welfare — she  was  directed  to  report, 
on  October  1,  1923,  for  duty  in  Sacra- 
mento. This  order  she  at  first  attempted 
to  ignore ;  she  sought  to  involve  her  ch'ef 
in  a  letter  writing  contest ;  and  through  it 
all  persisted  in  remaining  on  duty  in  San 
Francisco.  It  finally  became  necessary  to 
file  charges  of  insubordination  against  her 
on  two  counts :  failure  to  appear  in  Sac-

raraenttv,  and  persistence  in  appearing  in 
San  Francisco. 

On  Novembur  -5  the  case  came  to  trial. 
Miss  McLanglilJn  was  represented  by  an 
attorney.  The  State  Librarian  app?ared 
both  as  appellant  and  as  attorney  in  his 
case.  Mnch  testimony  that  was  quite 
irrelevant  was  introduced  by  the  defense. 
The  appellant  was  content  to  present 
documentary  evidence  which  conclusively 
proved  his  contention. 

At  the  end  of  the  hearing  the  Civil 
Service  Commission  direored  the  parties 
to  submit  briefs.  And  after  due  delibera- 
tion thereon  it  Avas  decided  by  the  Com- 
mission that  Miss  McLaughlin  was  guilty 
of  insubordination  on  the  two  counts 
charged  ;  and  she  was  dismissed  from  the 
service.  Milton  J.  Ferguson,

NEWS   NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES. 


[Jan.,  1924 


As  a  means  of  securing  the  most  efficient 
sei'viee  we  suggest  that  a  prompt  notifica- 
tion be  sent  in  of  all  changes  in  the  address 
of  branches.  We  find  that  we  are  some- 
times sending  packages  to  the  wrong  place, 
because  we  have  not  been  notified  of  the 
change  of  location  of  the  branch.  This 
infoi'mation  should  be  given  on  a  "new 
branch"  slip.  When  given  on  the  request 
slip  it  is  liable  to  be  overlooked  by  the 
shipping  department.  "New  branch" 
slips  will  be  fui'nished  on  request.

were  filed  in  the  ITnion  Catalog. 

CALIFORNIA   DEPARTMENT. 

EuDORA  Gaboutte,  In  charge. 

The  California  Department  aims  to 
have  a  thoroughly  good  collection  _  of 
books  on  the  history  and  description, 
resources  and  industries  of  the  State,  as 
well  as  the  works  of  California  authors 
in  all  departments  of  literature.  These 
are  made  accessible  by  means  of  a  card 
catalog.  Full  names'  and  biographical 
sketches  of  California  authors,  artists, 
musicians,  pioneers  and  early  settlers  are 
being  secured,  together  with  their  photo- 
graphs. The  collection  of  bound  peri- 
odicals is  quite  large.  The  Department 
also  contains  about  90OO  bound  volumes 
of  newspapers',  a  file  of  which  is  being 
indexed  with  reference  to  the  history  of 
the  State.  Students  will  be  assisted  in 
their  work. 

Pioneers  and  Early  Settlers. 

Royal  H.  Waller  was  born  in  Vermont 
and  came  to  California  in  1849,  making 
the  trip  around  the  Horn.  Mr  Waller 
settled  in  San  Francisco  and  in  1854  was 
elected  City  Recorder,  which  office  at  that 
time  was  the  same  as  police  judge.  He 
was  later  School  Director,  U.  S.  Land 
Receiver  and  Pension  Agent  in  the  U.  S. 
Army  with  rank  of  Major.  He  was  an 
active  and  honored  citizen  of  San  Fran- 
cisco up  to  the  time  of  his  death  in  1866. 

Joseph  Curtis  Bufifum  arrived  in  '49, 
making   the   trip    across    the   plains.      Mr 


Buffum's  diary  of  the  events  of  this  trip 
and  of  his  early  life  in  San  Francisco  is 
a  most  valuable  document.  After  making 
several  trips  back  East  he  finally  returned 
to  California  in  1897,  where  he  perma- 
nently remained  until  his  death  which 
occurred  in  1904. 

Henry  Hovey  Hyde  also  arrived  in 
1849.  The  cards  of  those  who  reached 
California  in  the  'fifties  are  as  follows : 
Eugene  Bandel,  Helen  MoCowen  Carpen- 
ter, William  Willis  Elmore,  Henry  Stuart 
Foote,  Edmond  Godcheaux,  and  Capt. 
Hallet  M.  Winslow.

THE  MECHANICS'-MERCANTILE  LIBRARY.* 


By  Byron  Mauzt,  President  Mechanics'  Institute,  San  Francisco. 


You  have  asked  me  to,  present  a  pic- 
turesque history  of  the  Mechanics'-Mer- 
cantile  Library. 

It  is  not  difficult  to  picture  in  words 
the  history  of  the  Mechanics'  Institute 
with  its  various  activities  from  its  incep- 
tion to  the  present  day,  if  one  had  the 
artistic  literary  ability  to  portray  it. 
Material  is  indeed  abundant  and  even  our 
English  language  is  full  enough  to  paint 
a  picture  of  glowing  colors  that  would  win 
the  approval  of  the  most  critical  among 
you,  if  one  could  so  blend  them  together. 
As  a  business  man  and  not  an  artist  in 
words,  I  am  obliged  to  present  you,  in- 
deed, only  a  very  salient  picture  which  I 
have  secured  through  the  courtesy  of  our 
able  Secretary  and  our  very  efficient 
Librarian. 

lam  quite  sure  that  what  your  program 
committee  reallj'  expected  was  an  account 
of  tlie  Mechanics'  Institute,  and  of  the 
Mercantile  Library  Association,  eacli  of 
which,  in  the  early  days  of  San  Francisco, 
established  and  maintained  a  separate 
library  under  its  own  management,  there- 
being  no  connection  whatever  between 
them  until  January,  190'6,  when  the 
Mercantile  Library  Association  went  out 
of  existence  and,  under  an  agreement  with 
its  Diembers,  its  books  were  taken  over  by 
the  Mechanics'  Institute ;  the  libraries 
were  combined  and  thereafter  operated 
undci  the  name  of  the  Mechanics'-Mer- 
cantile  Library  until  April,  1906,  when 
the  San  Francisco  fire  wiped  both  collec- 
tions out  of  existence. 

Inasmuch  as  I  represent  the  Mechanics' 
Institute  as  its  president,  but  more  par- 
ticularly because  its  history  is  of  a  dis- 
tinctly different  type  from  that  of  the 
Mercantile  Library  Association,  I  shall 
begin  with  its  organization,  progressing 
as  far  as  the  amalgamation  of  the  two 
associations. in  1006,  when  we  will  go  back 
over  the  years  and  review  the  story  of 
the  Mercantile  Library. 

To  begin,  as  its  name  implies,  the 
Mechanics'  Institute  was  established  as 
an  aid  in  the  advancement  of  the 
mechanic  arts  and  science ;  its  organizers 
were  mechanics  who  felt  the  need  of  self- 
improvement  and  who  were  willing  to  put 
their  shoulders   to  the  wheel   to   get  this 


advancement  for  themselves  and  to  pro- 
vide it  for  others.  These  men  met  in  the 
office  of  the  then  tax  collector  on  Decem- 
ber 11,  1854,  completed  their  organization, 
and  devised  a  plan  of  operation.  Several 
subsequent  meetings  were  held  at  which 
the  plan  was  further  worked  out ;  on 
March  6,  1855,  a  constitution  was  pre- 
sented and  adopted  \^■hich  set  forth  that 
the  designs  and  objects  of  the  association 
were  to  cultivate  a  social  feeling  of  friend- 
ship and  an  educational  improvement 
among  its  members ;  the  dissemination  of 
information  and  useful  knowledge  by  the 
establishment  of  a  library  of  circulation 
and  reference,  a  museum  and  reading 
room,  the  formation  of  classes  and  delivery 
of  lectures  for  tuition,  the  collection  of 
cabinets,  scientific  apparatus,  works  of 
art,  the  purchase  of  property  and  the 
erection  of  buildings  for  the  requirements 
of  the  Institute,  or  for  any  scientific, 
mechanical  or  literary  purpose ;  and  it 
was  further  provided  that  no  individual 
right  in  its  property  should  exist  or  be 
acquired,  and  that  the  property  should  be 
held  in  trust  for  the  association  and 
never  be  diverted  from  the  purposes  and 
intention  for  which  it  was  acquired. 

Its  library  opened  on  April  5,  1855, 
with  the  gift  of  the  following  four  books : 
the  "Constitution  of  the  United  States," 
an  "Encyclopaedia  of  Architecture," 
"Curtis  on  Conveyancing,"  and  a  copy 
of  the  Bible.  Within  a  few  months  a 
room  was  rented  on  the  fourth  floor  of 
the  Express  Building,  at  California  and 
Montgomery  streets,  where  the  Kohl 
Building  now  stands,  where,  with  varying 
ups  and  downs,  it  remained  until  1858, 
when,  with  a  libary  of  900  volumes,  it 
moved  to  larger  quarters  on  Montgomery 
street,  between  Pine  and  California. 

During  this  time  its  members  were  not 
unmindful  of  the  objects  for  which  they 
had  organized  and  after  much  considera- 
tion it  was  decided  that,  in  addition  to  its 
other  activities,  it  should  further  the  city's 
interests  by  the  holding  of  an  exhibition 
of  the  manufactures  and  industries,  not 
only  of  the  city  but  of  the  entire  state. 

At  this  time  there  was  no  structure  of 
sufficient  size  to  house  the  proposed  ex- 
hibit, so,  in  addition  to  arranging  for  the

exhibit  itself,  it  became  necessary  to 
provide  a  building  therefor.  The  avail- 
able funds  of  the  Institute  Avere  limited  to 
a  few  hundred  dollars  but,  due  to  the 
courage  and  enterprise  of  its  founders, 
the  use  of  the  James  Lick  lot,  on  Mont- 
gomery street,  was  secured  without  pay- 
ment of  rental,  and  a  building  covering 
20,000  square  feet,  and  costing  some 
$7000,  was  erected.  From  this  beginning 
grew  the  annual  so-called  Mechanics' 
Fair,  for  which  other  and  larger  buildings 
were  from  time  to  time  erected,  and  which 
speedily  became  the  leading  feature  in 
the  city's  educational  and  social  life. 
These  faii-s  were  discontinued  in  1899,  it 
having  become  apparent  that  they  had 
served  their  pui-pose  in  bringing  to  the 
attention  of  the  world  the  resources  and 
manufactures  of  the  state. 

The  management  of  the  Institute  was 
in  the  hands  of  a  board  of  trustees 
elected  from  its  membership,  and  the  suc- 
cess and  popularity  of  the  fairs  were  not 
allowed  to  interfere  with  the  progress  of 
the  other  work  provided  for  in  the  con- 
stitution. Additions  were  constantly 
made  to  the  rapidly  growing  library,  and 
in  I860  the  Institute  purchased  its  first 
real  estate,  a  lot  on  California  street, 
between  Kearny  and  Montgomery,  upon 
which  a  Jiuildiug  Avas  erected  and  into 
which  it  moved  its  .5000  volumes.  The 
library  remained  here  some  three  years, 
and  in  18GG  the  Post  street  lot  (the  site 
of  our  present  building)  was  purchased 
and  a  building  erected  thereon  which  Avas 
occupied  by  the  library  until  destroyed  by 
the  fire  of  April,  3906.. 

During  all  of  this  time  the  educational 
aims  of  the  Institute  were  featured  to  the 
fullest  extent  which  its  funds  Avould 
permit.  Lectures  upon  technical,  scien- 
tific, and  other  subjects,  by  the  best  men 
in  their  respective  lines,  Avere  provided, 
and  classes  in  mechanical  and  free-hand 
drawing,  and  allied  subjects  were  main- 
tained where  the  apprentice  or  mechanic 
could,  at  a  minimum  of  expense,  provide 
himself  Avith  the  knoAvledge  necessai'y  for 
his  Avork.  This  feature  of  the  Institute's 
activities  placed  it  faA'orably  and  pi-omi- 
nently  hefore  the  public  as  an  educational 
institution  and  it  Avas,  no  doubt,  respon- 
sible to  a  great  extent  for  the  section  in 
the  charter  of  the  University  of  Cali- 
fornia, providing  that  the  President  of  the 


Mechanics'  Institute  should  be  ex  officio 
a  regent  of  the  State  University. 

Perhaps  the  outstanding  feature  in  the 
Institute's  history,  in  the  light  of  its 
relation  to  its  finances,  was  the  purchase 
in  ISSl  of  the  block  of  land  bounded  by 
Larkin,  Playes,  Polk  and  Grove  streets 
for  $175,000.  For  some  years  previous 
to  this  time  the  Institute  had  been  holding 
its  industrial  exhibitions  in  its  pavilion 
at  Eighth  and  Mission  streets  (where  noAV 
stands  the  Crystal  Market),  the  land  for 
which  it  had  leased  at  one  dollar  per  year 
and  the  payment  of  the  taxes  thereon. 
The  building  on  this  lot  was  moved  to  the 
uew  site  and  I'emained  there  until  de- 
stroyed in  the  conflagration  of  1906.  In 
1913  this  land  was  sold  to  the  city  and 
county  of  San  Francisco  for  the  purpose 
of  erecting  thereon  the  present  Municipal 
Auditorium,  the  purchase  price  being 
$700,000. 

The  library  in  its  Post  street  quarters 
continued  to  hold  its  place  in  the  public 
esteem,  and  in  the  early  part  of  1906  it 
had  upon  its  shelves  considerably  over 
100',000  volumes,  comprising  a  general 
library  Avith  an  exceptionally  fine  scien- 
tific and  technical  collection.  At  this 
time  came  the  consolidation  Avith  the 
Mercantile  Library  and  the  taking  over 
of  its  collection  of  books  Avhich  brought 
the  number  of  volumes,  in  the  combined 
libraries,  to  over  200,000,  many  of  them 
rare,  priceless  volumes. 

At  this  point,  as  I  said  earlier,  let  us 
go  back  over  the  years  and  review  the 
story  of  the  Mercantile  Library.  This 
association  was  organized  by  the  mer- 
chants of  San  Francisco  in  December, 
1S52,  and  after  considerable  discussion  as 
to  the  need  of  such  an  association  the 
committee  reported  a  pledged  sum  of 
$n0O0.  With  this  encouragement  it  was 
thought  advisable  to  commence  operations, 
and  on  the  tAventy-fifth.  of  January,  1853, 
a  meeting  Avas  called  for  the  election  of 
oHiccrs.  The  Library  began  with  the 
l)ur(l)ase  of  a  private  collection  of  about 
2.""i'nO  Ijooks  and  pamphlets.  Rooms  were 
secured  in  the  California  Exchange  Build- 
ing at  the  northeast  corner  of  Clay  and 
Kearn.A'  streets,  and  opened  to  readers 
early  in  February,  1853. 

The  early  history  of  this  library  shows 
that  while  there  was  a  constant  growth 
in    the    number    of    volumes,    there    Avas

alwa.As  the  woriy  about  finances.  In 
1805  the  association  decided  to  erect  its 
own  building  and  a  lot  was  purchased  on 
Bush  street,  between  Montgomery  and 
Sansome  streets,  at  a  cost  of  $50,000.  A 
loan  of  $100,000  was  then  negotiated,  the 
lot  and  proposed  building  given  as  security 
therefor,  and  additional  loans  to  the 
amount  of  $100,000  were  effected.  The 
buildiug  was  completed  and  dedicated  on 
the  eighteenth  of  June,  1868,  at  which 
time  the  total  indebtedness  was  $240,000. 
Various  means  to  raise  the  amount  were 
tried  but  with  very  little  success.  To 
quote  from  an  annual  report  of  that 
period  :  "the  prospects  were  most  gloomy  ; 
it  was  impossible  to  obtain  a  supply  even 
of  the  cheap  current  literature ;  and  the 
mortgagee  had  commenced  a  suit  of  fore- 
closure." Temporary  relief  was  had, 
liowever,  from  a  musical  festival  which 
])rovided  the  association  with  nearly 
$20.(100. 

A  bill,  which  became  a  law  February 
20,  1870,  was  passed  by  the  legislature 
authorizing  the  association  to  hold  three 
gift  concerts.  These  were  in  reality 
lottery  drawings,  known  as  the  "Mercan- 
tile Library  Lottery,"  which  netted  a 
profit  of  $310,120  with  which  the  entire 
indebtedness  of  the  association  was  paid, 
leaving  a  balance  of  $20,(KX>.  The  con- 
certs were  given  at  the  California  Theatre 
and  the  drawings  of  the  lottery  were  held 
in  the  Mechanics'  Institute  pavilion,  then 
located  on  the  present  Union  Square. 

In  time  its  collection  of  books  became 
known  as  one  rich  in  treasures  of  art, 
literature,  and  rare  editions,  but  its 
financial  condition  did  not  prosper,  and 
seveial  attempts  were  made  to  consolidate 
the  association  with  the  Mechanics'  Insti- 
tute but  without  avail.  It  was  finally 
decided  to  purchase  a  lot  on  the  northeast 
corner  of  Van  Ness  and  Golden  Gate 
avenues  and  to  erect  a  new  library  build- 
iug thereon ;  the  cornerstone  was  laid  on 
March  28,  ISO'l.  The  library  remained 
in  this  location  until  1901  when  it  w^as 
moved  back  to  the  business  center,  into 
quarters  secTired  on  Sutter  street  between 
Kearn.v  street  and  Grant  avenue.  Its 
consolidation  with  the  Mechanics'  Insti- 
tute was  effected  early  in  1908  but  its 
usefulness  was  not  fated  to  last  long,  for 
on  April  18,  1906,  the  city  was  destroyed 
by  the  greatest  fire  in  the  world's  history 


and'  with  it  the  combined  library  contain- 
ing a  ])riceless  collection  of  books. 

The  Mechanics'  Institute  trustees  im- 
mediately started  the  collection  of 
another  library  and  by  August,  1900,  a 
temporary  building  bad  been  erected  on 
the  former  JNIechanics'  Fa\ilion  lot  at 
Grove  and  Polk  streets  and  over  5000 
volumes  installed  therein.  Early  in  1909 
a  contract  was  entered  into  for  the  erec- 
tion of  the  present  Post  street  building 
and  by  July,  1910,  the  library  was  back 
to  the  location  it  had  occupied  prior  to 
lOOiG  since  1866. 

Early  in  its  existence  the  Institute 
established  a  chess  center  at  which  gath- 
ered all  of  the  more  prominent  playere 
of  the  day.  Chess  is,  as  you  know,  more 
than  an  ordinary  game — ^very  much  in 
the  nature  of  a  mathematical  calculation 
— and  its  practice  makes  for  the  develop- 
menl  of  a  keen  intellect.  This  feature 
has  steadily  grown,  and  today  the 
Mechanics'  Institute's  Chess  Club  is  known 
in  every  part  of  the  world  where  chess  is 
discussed.  Practically  all  of  the  world's 
best  known  players  have  at  one  time  or 
anotiier  made  visits  to  this  club  and 
pitted  their  skill  against  that  of  players 
whose  training  was  had  in  our  chess 
club.  I  am  proud  to  say  that  the  science 
of  our  local  players  was,  in  a  great  many 
instaiices,  superior  to  that  of  our  visitors 
and  that  the  Mechanics'  Institute's  Chess 
CIu'o  liolds  many  records  for  skillful  and 
daring  playing. 

The  sale  of  the  pavilion  lot  to  the  city 
in  3913  provided  the  Institute  with  a 
handsome  endowment  which  has  enabled 
the  trustees  to  carry  out  more  fully  the 
aim  of  the  founders  of  the  Institute  to 
disseminate  information  and  useful  knowl- 
edge at  the  least  possible  effort  to  the 
seeker  and  to  advance  the  Mechanics' 
Institute  as  an  educational  center. 

I  trust  that  this  paper  may  prove  of 
interest  to  you  and  that  you  will  gather 
from  it  this  fact,  that  the  progress  of  the 
Mechanics'  Institute  and  of  the  Mercantile 
Libra  r.v  Association  from  nothing  to 
something  important  was  due  to  the 
indomitable  will  and  determination  of 
those  early-day  workers  and  to  the  con- 
scientious labor  of  those  who  followed 
them.  Without  this  spirit  there  would 
have  been  no  Mechanics'-Mercantile 
Library.

The  library  of  the  School  for  the  Blind 
has  ceased  to  be  a  circulating  library  and 
is  now  used  only  for  school  purposes. 

AD  books  in  line  letter  and  New  York 
point  have  been  discarded  in  compliance 
with  the  resolution  of  the  American 
Association  of  Instructors  for  the  Blind 
for  the  adoption  of  a  uniform  system  of 
(Mubossed  literature.  Books  in  American 
Braille  are  retained  for  the  older  pupils 
who  still  read  that  system.  All  new 
purchases  consist  of  books  in  the  Revised 
Braille. 

The  School  will  add  to  its  library  this 
year  some  five  hundred  volumes  of  new 
material.  These  are  purchased  chiefly 
under  the  National  Subsidy  fund  but  a 
fairly  large  number  will  be  purchased 
under  the  provisions  of  the  budget 
measure  of  192.3.  The  new  accessions  are 
confined  to  school  books  and  books  for 
supplementary  use  in  language,  literature, 
science  and  history.

every  two  months  in  Fresno,  as  the  most 
central  location.  The  first  luncheon  was

ing  of  the  new  things  she  is  doing  and  all 
taking  part  in  the  discussion  of  problems. 

We  have  opened  several  new  branches 
during  the  quarter.  One  is  at  the  Cheney 
Pumping  Station  on  the  West  Side  and 
is  in  charge  of  Mrs  D.  C.  Keyser  in  her 
home.  We  have  had  a  small  collection  in 
the  school  near  here  and  this  has  been 
moved  to  the  regular  branch.  Another 
interesting  branch  is  in  the  contagious 
ward  at  the  General  Hospital  and  is  in 
charge  of  the  head  nurse  of  the  ward. 
We  send  only  discards,  which  are  kept  at 
the  hospital.  The  rest  of  the  branches 
are  at  the  Southeru  California  Edison 
Company's  camps  and  at  Power  House 
No.  8  of  the  same  compaiay.  We  have 
visited  these  branches,  with  the  exception 
of  Camp  5  which  is  at  the  top  of  the 
incline  and  can  only  be  reached  by  train. 
The  branch  at  Power  House  No.  8  is 
called  Schewanikee  and  will  be  a  perma- 
nent branch.  It  is  located  in  the  power 
house  until  the  club  house  is  built,  the 
club  holding  themselves  responsible  for 
the  books. 

Miss  Kate  Foley,  State  Teacher  of  the 
Blind,  visited  Fresno  in  January  and  met 
a  number  of  the  blind  in  this  vicinity, 
teaching  some  to  read  and  inspiring  others 
to  keep  up  their  studies.  She  spoke  to 
sevei-al  of  the  luncheon  clubs  and  the 
Rotary  Club  joined  the  California  Society 
for  the  Blind  in  a  body.  She  also  spoke 
at  St.  Paul's  Church  and  at  the  State 
College.  We  had  the  pleasure  of  having 
her  talk  to  the  staff  and  meeting  her 
afterwards. 

The  County  Superintendent  of  Schools 
and  his  supervisors  held  sectional  insti- 
tute? all  during  the  month  of  February 
and  we  had  a  representative  at  each  to 
tell  the  teachers  about  our  work  with  the 
schools.  Seventeen  sessions  were  held  and 
we  feel  that  much  will  be  gained  by  this 
personal  contact  with  the  teachers. 

I\[is3  Bailey  and  Miss  Yager  have  started 
their  class  in  School  and  Library  Cooper- 
ation at  the  State  College.  This  course  is 
given  to  the  normal  students  who  wish 
to  take  it  and  credits  are  given  them 
for  their  work.  The  course  includes 
general  library  administration,  selection 
of  children's  books  and  County  Library

to    the    schools.     A    good    deal    of    time

is  spent  in  the  study  of  the  county 
manual  also.  We  think  that  this  class  is 
most  important  as  it  gives  the  new  teach- 
ers a  right  understanding  of  our  work 
with  the  schools  and  simplifies  our  rela- 
tions with  them  when  they  go  into  the 
county  schools  which  belong  to  the  library. 
We  find  that  the  teachers  who  take  this 
course  have  a  much  more  intelligent  idea 
of  the  County  Library  scheme  than  those 
who  have  not. 

Miss  McCardle  and  a  number  of  the 
staff  attended  the  meeting  of  the  Fourth 
District  at  Merced  on  the  27th  of  Feb- 
ruary. The  meeting  was  most  interesting 
and  a  very  pleasant  and  profitable  day 
was  spent. 

On  the  19th  of  March  we  held  a  district 
institute  for  custodians  at  Reedley.  The 
custodians  from  Fowler,  Selma,  Kings- 
burg,  Clovis,  Sanger,  Del  Rey,  Parlier, 
Xavelencia.  Orange  Cove  and  Reedley 
were  in  attendance.  We  left  Fresno 
with  two  machines  and  took  along 
a  number  of  assistants  from  the  main 
library  to  take  the  places  of  the  custo- 
dians whom  we  took  on  to  the  meeting. 
They  took  charge  of  the  branches  for  the 
day  and  on  their  return  made  a  written 
report  of  the  conditions  which  they  found, 
thus  giving  us  a  better  understanding  of 
how  the  work  is  being  carried  on.  We 
took  our  luncheons  and  spent  the  day  in 
the  Reedlej'  library,  which  is  a  model  for 
arrangement  and  neatness.  The  work  of 
a  branch  library  was  taken  up  point  by 
point,  filing,  children's  work,  work  with 
the  schools,  etc.  We  expect  to  hold  two 
other  institutes  in  the  near  future,  group- 
ing the  branches  which  are  close  together.

There  have  been  several  changes  in  the 
personnel  of  the  Imperial  County  Free 
Library.  Mrs  Chapman  of  Seeley  Branch 
has  moved  to  Willowbrook  and  Mrs 
Moughmer  was  appointed  to  fill  the

resigned  and  Miss  Helen  Montgomery  has 
taken  up  the  work  there. 

Miss  Gladys  Nietmann,  of  the  Head- 
quarters staff,  was  married  to  Mr  William 
Strickland  Febiiiary  16  and  has  re-

place  in  the  library.  Miss  Kavanaugh  is 
not  a  stranger  in  our  midst  as  she  had 
charge  of  our  Holtville  Branch  just  last 
year.  She  is  so  interested  in  library  work 
that  she  quit  Normal  School  to  accept  the 
position.  Her  mother,  Mrs  John  Kava- 
naiigh,  is  one  of  the  rural  supervisors 
and  a  great  booster  for  county  libraries. 
Miss  Julia  Foncanon  resigned  March  1 
and  Miss  Willoughby  was  appointed  to 
fill  the  vacancy. 

Miss  Evalyn  Boman,  Acting  Librarian, 
attended  the  District  C  L.  A.  Convention 
in  Alhambra,  which  was  very  much 
enjoyed. 

Work  on  the  new  Court  House  Building, 
in  \\hich  the  library  is  to  have  new  quar- 
ters, is  progressing  rapidly,  but  it  will  be 
some  time  before  it  will  be  ready  for  use. 
However  it  gives  one  quite  a  satisfied 
feeling  to  know  that  our  hopes  for  a  new 
place  are  going  to  materialize.

In  September.  1023.  the  library  was 
reorganized  as  a  combined  library  and

necessity  been  spent  for  "essentials"  only, 
but  by  next  year  we  hope  to  have  a  well 
selected  library  which  will  adequately

The  series  of  talks  about  books  given  in 
tlio  fall  at  the  Y.  W.  C.  A.  by  the  libra- 
rian was  so  well  attended  that  a  second 
series  was  asked  for.  This  is  weekly 
through  February,  March,  and  April. 
Instead  of  being  given  by  the  librarian 
alone,  the  senior  members  of  the  staff  are 
each  giving  one  talk.  This  alteration  has 
proved  to  be  popular  with  the  class.  It 
is  good  policy,  too,  for  it  makes  very 
evident  to  the  community  how  capable 
are  all  their  library   workers. 

Several  rather  notable  musical  events 
have  occurred  in  Pomona  this  winter.  In 
preparation  for  these  the  library  has 
advertised  that  anyone  might  have  the 
records  of  the  concert  numbers  played 
for  them  at  any  time.  This  is  to  meet  the 
necessities  of  those  who  can  not  come  to 
a  stated  phonograph  concert.  The  re- 
sponse to  this  invitation  was  quite  good. 

At  a  Board  meeting  held  January  19, 
it  was  voted  that  the  staff  be  classified 
into  three  groups,  with  graded  salaries 
in  each  group  and  no  advancement  from 
group  to  group  except  upon  further  train- 
ing. Miss  Beryl  Lewis  (Riverside  1022) 
was  made  head  of  the  Circulation  Depart- 
ment. The  salaries  of  department  heads 
were  increased  ten  and  fifteen  dollars  per 
month,  according  to  the  schedule  of 
salaries  adopted  at  the  same  meeting. 
These  increases  took  eft'ect  as  from  Janu- 
ary first. 

The  local  historical  collection  has  re- 
ceived from  Mrs  Mel  Campbell  of  Pomona 
a  coujplete  history  of  the  Pomona  Woman's

The  Carnegie  Endowment  for  Inter-

library  of  the  San  Francisco  Theological 
Seminary,  a  depository  of  all  its  publica- 
tions on  condition  that  such  publications 
would  be  made  available  for  use  by  the 
public.  We  consider  this  a  very  real  con- 
tribution to  our  growing  collection  on 
internationalism,  especially  since,  through 
our  Extension  Service,  we  '  are  sending 
books  to  Presbyterian  ministers  and  other

was  chairman  of  the  Board  of  Super- 
visors when  the  County  Library  was 
established,  is  now  managing  the  hospital 
and  has  taken  charge  of  the  books  de- 
posited there.  These  books  will  not  be 
returned  to  the  main  library  but  will  be 
supplemented  from  time  to  time.  Any 
books  requested  by  Mr  Scandreth  and  the 
nurses  will  be  kept  in  a  separate  case 
and  returned  when  no  longer  in  use. 

A  branch  library  has  also  been  estab- 
lished at  El  Nido  and  is  in  charge  of  Mrs 
.J.  T.  Flanagan. 

A  Monday  morning  staff  meeting  has 
been  inaugurated  at  the  main  library  for 
the  purpose  of  reviewing  books  and  maga- 
zines and  for  the  discussion  of  problems 
of  service.  The  first  three  meetings 
were  devoted  to  reports  on  critical  maga- 
zines and  their  value  as  aids  in  book 
selection  and  in  evaluating  books  for  the 
public.  One  of  the  outstanding  modern 
dramas  will  be  reviewed  at  the  next 
meeting. 

The  foot  and  mouth  disease  has  de- 
scended upon  the  county  with  very 
disastrous  effects  and  strict  quarantine 
is  now  being  enforced.  This  means  that 
no  visits  can  be  made  by  the  librarian  to 
branches  or  by  custodians  to  the  main 
office  without  violating  the  spirit  of  the 
quarantine.  Some  branch  librarians  re- 
port their  circulation  is  seriously  affected 
because  people  can  not  get  to  the  library 
and  others  that  people  have  more  time  to 
read  and  are  therefore  using  the  library 
more  than  ever  and  that  the  guards  on 
duty  are  asking  for  many  books. 

The  Fourth  District  of  the  California

few  months.  Parent  Teacher  Association 
parties  have  been  given  for  the  three 
upper  classes  in  High  School,  and  one  for

Junior  College  has  also  had  a  party  and 
the  library  was  used  for  the  games  and 
general  entertainment.  In  February  a 
picture  framing  "bee"  was  held  here  and 
the   results   were    extremely   gratifying.

Riverside  will  have  co-education  in  the

mean  the  combining  of  the  two  libraries, 
we  are  hoping  for  larger  quarters  in  the 
new  high  school  building.  The  new  Junior 
College  building  provides  for  a  large  li-

arrived  to  take  charge  of  the  Branch  De-

the  congested  condition  of  our  catalog 
department,  has  been  largely  employed  in 
that  department  since  coming  to  us.

in  the  Arcade  District  in  the  Del  Paso

Mrs  F.  G.  Sprock,  who  acts  as  custodian. 
As  this  is  not  a  heavily  populated  com- 
munity, it  was  not  expected  that  the  de- 
mand would  be  heavy,  but  the  original 
shipment  of  50  books  proved  all  too 
small,  and  four  additional  shipments 
have  been  sent.  On  February  15,  a 
branch  was  established  in  the  County 
Jail,  for  the  use  of  the  prisoners.  This 
has  not  been  as  largely  served  as  it 
should  be,  but  it  is  expected  that  better 
service  will  be  established  in  the  near 
future. 

Tbe  Rio  Linda  Branch,  having  out- 
grown the  quarters  which  it  so  long 
occupied  in  the  store  of  H.  Herring,  was 
moved  on  February  29  to  the  Telephone 
Exchange,  where  more  commodious  quar- 
ters were  available  for  it,  with  Mrs  Belle 
Dennis  in  charge. 

Mrs  J.  K.  Harder,  having  resigned  as 
custodian  of  the  North  Sacramento 
Branch,  Mrs  W.  J.  Hoskins  was  appointed 
to  succeed  her  on  March  1. 

During    the    quarter,    the    County    Li- 
brarian delivered  5  public  addresses,  and 
made  14  visits  to  schools  and  branches.

Our  circulation  figures  continue  to 
mount.  In  spite  of  unprecedented  clear 
weather,  there  w^s  a  gain  of  more  than 
10,000  during  the  first  three  months  of 
1924,  over  the  same  period  last  year.

staff  on  Feb.  1,  as  clerical  assistant.  She 
has  charge  of  all  records  pertaining  to  the

Since  the  union  of  other  school  districts 
with  ChafEey,  making  the  greater  Chaffey 
district,  a  demand  has  arisen  for  books 
of  quality  adapted  to  younger  readers.  To 
meet  this  demand  some  four  hundred 
volumes  have  been  placed  in  the  Chaffey 
Library  and  are  now  being  used  by  the 
boys  and  girls  of  the  outer  districts. 
These  books  are  sent  out  in  numbers  of 
twenty-five,  in  special  containers  designed 
for  the  purpose.  The  books  are  placed 
under  the  care  of  the  teachers  of  the 
schools,  who  are  responsible  for  them. 
They  are  then  issued  to  the  pupils,  in  a 
manner  similar  to  the  way  books  are 
handled  in  any  library.  Each  consignment 
of  books  is  returned  in  four  weeks  and 
others  are  then  taken  our.  In  this  way 
from  fifty  to  one  hundred  volumes  are 
continually  in  circulation. 

This  plan  of  getting  good  books  into 
the  hands  of  boys  and  girls  who  may  not 
have  the  opportunity  of  coming  in  touch 
with  them  has  been  adopted  by  the 
Chaffey  Library.  It  is  believed  in  this 
way  that  the  young  people  of  our  schools 
will  be  helped  in  the  acquirement  of  the 
reading  habit  and  will  learn  some  of  the 
essential  lessons  of  life. 

The  books  designed  for  this  class  of 
readers  will  be  covered  by  the  following 
heads :  Mechanics  for  boys,  Outdoor 
sports,  Hero  stories,  Stories  of  industries, 
Stories  of  other  lands,  Stories  of  ad- 
venture. Animal  stories,  Nature  stories, 
Stories  of  real  people.  Stories  of  the  sea. 
Games  for  young  people.  Poetry  for 
young  people.

2.  Any  individual  may  submit  any  num- 
ber of  inquiries,  but  not  more  than  one 
forfeit  will  be  conceded  to  any  one 
individual. 

3.  Requests  for  information  are  always 
welcome,  but  only  those  received  on  or 
before  Friday,  March  21,  will  be  con- 
sidered in  this  demonstration. 

4.  Queries  may  be  communicated  by 
phone,  mail  or  in  person  to  the  Library 
but  must  be  clearly  and  explicitly  stated 
and  accompanied  by  name  and  address  of 
inquirer. 

5.  Inquiries  must  be  sincere  and  the 
information  requested  of  some  positive  or 
recognized  value  to  the  applicant. 

6.  No  questions  of  a  personal  or  private 
nature  will  be  considered. 

7.  Legal  and  medical  information,  while 
noinnally  supplied  to  a  limited  extent,  will 
not  be  considered   in   this  procedure,

be  regarded  within  the  scope  of  this 
experiment. 

9.  The  Library,  which  is  a  cooperating 
unit  of  the  California  County  Library 
system,  reserves  the  right  to  utilize  this 
.system,  in  which  the  State  Library 
functions  as  a  cleai'ing  house,  supplying 
supplementary  printed  matter  or  specify- 
ing in  what  libraries  it  is  obtainable. 

10.  The  applicant  is  to  be  his  own  judge 
as  to  whether  the  information  supplied 
reasonably  answers   his   inquiry. 

Lists  of  questions  and  sources  of 
replies  were  printed  from  time  to  time 
in  the  newspaper,  but  the  announcement 
of  the  first  nnan.swered  question,  "What 
is  the  origin  of  the  phrase  'Curiosity  killed 
a  cat'?"  appeared  to  excite  far  more 
attention  than  all  the  other  items  com- 
bined. 

Out  of  some  five  hundred  questions,  the 
library  failed  to  answer  four,  three  of 
which  were  quotations  while  the  fourth 
was  a  graphical  representation  of  certain 
technical    data.

We  have  a  new  library  this  year  which 
is  built  adjoining  the  main  study  hall.  It 
is  divided  into  two  parts — the  main  li- 
brary with  new  heavy  oak  tables,  chairs, 
and  attendant's  desk ;  and  the  text  book 
room  which  is  simply  the  store  room  for 
the  school  text  books.  A  number  of 
reference  books  for  all  departments  have 
been  added  this  year  to  increase  the  1753 
volumes  already  in  the  library. 

Also  we  have  succeeded  this  year  in 
organizing  a  library  science  class  of  ten 
girls  who  are  especially  interested  in  li- 
brary work.  They  meet  with  the  librarian 
twice  a  week  during  the  activities  period

The  decorative  fealiire  of  carved  vrood 
for  the  main  entrance  of  the  Public 
Library,  which  has  been  awaited  since 
the  building  was  erected  in  1917,  has 
been  completed.  Last  year  a  friend  of 
the  library  save  half  the  fund  necessary 
and  the  City  Council  appropriated  the 
other  half. 

Tli^  overdoor  is  of  wood,  carved,  gilded 
and  painted  in  color.  The  design  is  in  a 
restrained  Spanish  baroque  to  harmonize 
with  the  building  in  general.  The  theme 
is  that  of  the  coat-of-arms  of  the  city  of 
Santa  Barbara,  surrounded  by  the  devices 
of  four  famous  and  ancient  libraries  of 
the  old  world,  and  with  idealized  statues 
of  Plato  and  Aristotle  placed  at  either 
side  of  the  central  coat-of-arms  as  sup- 
porters. At  the  extreme  bottom  is  a 
sacramental  symbol  to  represent  the 
religious  purpose  which  inspired  the 
Mission  Fathers,  flanked  by  the  castles 
of  Spain.  The  cockleshells  appearing  in 
several  places  are  the  symbol  of  the 
Apostle,  Saint  James  the  Great,  the 
patron  saint  of  Spain  and  of  the  Spanish 
colonies.  Plato  at  the  left  and  Aristotle 
at  the  right  typify  philosophy  and  science 
and  represent  the  source  of  modern  litera- 
tur-.^.  The  shields  above  are  the  heraldic 
devices  of  the  University  of  Bologna,  the 
Bibliotheque  Nationale,  the  University  of 
Salamanca  and  the  Bodleian  Library.

The  event  of  the  quarter  was  a  visit  to 
Sacramento  in  March.  The  tour  was 
personally  conducted  by  Miss  Huntington, 
who  gets  homesick  for  the  State  Library 
at  times,  and  the  party  included  Miss 
Wheeler,  Miss  Ward,  and  Miss  Margaret

Library,  Miss  Patterson  of  the  Palo  Alto 
Public  Library,  and  Miss  King  of  the  San

Benito  County  Library.  We  left  San  Jose 
at  four  o'clock  Thursday  afternoon.  While 
we  were  waiting  at  Xiles  for  the  Sacra- 
mento train  we  visited  the  branch  there 
of  the  Alameda  County  Library.  A 
splendid  collection  of  books  and  a  charm- 
ing custodian  who  kept  the  library  open 
an  extra  half  hour  for  the  visitors  sus- 
tained our  pride  in  the  county  library 
system. 

Friday  morning  we  spent  in  the  State 
Library,  meeting  various  members  of  the 
staff,  visiting  the  cataloging,  documents, 
newspaper,  reference,  and  circulation 
departments,  and  discovering  Santa  C^ara 
Coimty  cards  in  the  union  catalog.  In 
the  afternoon  we  saw  the  Sacramento 
County,  Yolo  County,  and  Woodland 
Public  Libraries.  Miss  Laugenour  and 
her  staff  gave  us  a  very  nice  tea  in  the 
Yolo  County  Library.  In  the  evening 
we  called  on  Mr  and  Mrs  Ferguson  in 
their  delightful  new  home.  Saturday 
morning,  after  Miss  Susan  Smith  had 
taken  us  over  the  beautiful  Sacramento 
City  Library,  we  returned  to  the  State 
Library  to  "do"  the  law,  blind,  shipping, 
and  California  departments.  Each  de- 
partment seemed  more  interesting  than 
the  last  and  if  it  had  not  been  for  the 
prospect  of  luncheon  with  Miss  Gillis  we 
should  probably  still  be  bombarding  the 
staff  with  questions  and  receiving  very 
wise  and  helpful  answers. 

This  account  may  sound  a  bit  like  the 
society  notes  of  the  local  newspaper,  but 
Miss  Huntington's  tour  not  only  gave  a 
great  deal  of  pleasure  to  its  members  bat 
quite  equaled  a  whole  course  at  a  library 
school  in  educational  value.  It  gave  to 
us  new  ideas  for  our  own  library  and 
greater  professional  interest  in  library 
work  through  the  contacts  with  other 
libraries  and  librarians.  It  also  helped 
us  to  a  more  intelligent  understanding 
and  appreciation  of  the  splendid  system 
and  wonderful  work  of  the  California 
State  Library,  and  of  the  share  of  the 
county  library  in  that  system  and  work.

The  San  Jose  Law  Library,  established 
in  1874,  became  the  Santa  Clara  County 
Law  Library  in  January,  1924.  The 
original  charter  was  to  endure  for  .50 
years  and  would  expire  March  20,  1924. 
Accordingly  the  supervisors  took  action  to 
establish  a  library  under  the  state  law 
providing  for  county  law  libraries.  The 
old  law  ]ibrai"y  trustees  were  appointed 
as  the  new  library  board.  Mr  Owen  D. 
Richardson  being  named  president  at  a 
meeting  on  February  25.  Miss  Louise  J. 
Spencer  was  continued  as  librarian  and 
all  property  was  transferred. 

The  San  Jose  Mercury-Herald  of  Feb- 
ruary 27  gives  the  above  facts  as  well  as 
a  complete  history  of  the  organization  of 
the  law  library.

Miss  Lona  Crane  (U.  C.  1923)  was 
employed  as  Library  Assistant  for  the 
period  July  1,  1923,  to  March  1,  1924. 
In  this  interval  she  brought  the  card 
catalog  of  the  bound  volumes  in  the 
librai-y  (on  the  Dewey  Decimal  System) 
up  to  date,  rearranged'  the  shelving,  and 
sorted  and  rough  classified  the  large  col- 
lection of  pamphlets.  An  accurate  count 
has  not  been  made  recently,  but  the  bound 
volumes  number  at  least  8500,  and  the 
pamphlets  approximately   5000. 

There  is  no  special  fund  for  the  sui> 
port  of  the  library ;  appropriations  from 
the  regular  budget  of  the  observatory  are 
made  for  it  as  required.

all  the  attendant  difficulties  and  incon- 
veniences of  administration,  so  now  the 
chance  to  develop  a  real  high  school 
library  is  very  welcome.  I  have  a  library 
training  class  of  five  who  help  me  in  the 
Ubrary,  and  we  have  now  started  our 
revised  card  catalog,  using  L.  C.  cards. 
Up  to  this  time,  I  have  preferred  to  use 
my  time  for  pei'sonal  work  with  the 
students  rather  than  in  tlie  more  technical 
library  practices,  and  now  it  is  with 
enthusiasm  that  we  are  planning  our 
work.

Pres.  George  T.  Clark,  Director  of  the 
University  Libraries. 

At  a  recent  meeting  of  the  Board  of 
Trustees,  Mr  Clark's  title  was  changed 
from  "university  librarian"  to  that  of 
"director  of  the  university  libraries."  The 
change  seemed  to  be  desirable  for  several 
reasons,  but  ch'efly  to  indicate  better  his 
administrative  responsibilities  for  a  system 
including  not  only  the  university  library 
proper,  but  such  distinct  units  as  the  Law 
Libraiw,  the  Lane  Medical  Library,  and 
the  Hoover  War  Library,  comprising 
altogether  some  400,000  volumes. 

The  Hoover  War  Library  now  numbers 
over  40.000  volumes.  Its  policies  will  be 
determined  by  a  directorate  composed  of 
Herbert  Hoover,  its  founder,  the  President 
of  Stanford  University,  the  Director  of 
the  University  Libraries,  .representatives 
from  the  departments  of  History,  Eco- 
nomics, Political  Science,  and  Food  Re- 
search Institute,  with  Professor  E'.  D. 
Adams  of  tlie  department  of  History  as 
chairman.  The  Hoover  War  Library  has 
its  own  budget  and  its  own  staff,  and  its 
endowment  will  permit  it  to  continue  the 
acquisition  of  material  relating  to  the 
world  war  and  reconstruction  on  a  liberal 
scale.  George  T.  Clark,

Miss  Elizabeth  R.  Topping,  Lib'n. 

The  Fillmore  Branch  Library  has 
moved  into  a  larger  room  next  door  to  the 
old  building.  The  labor  of  moving  was 
volunteered  without  request  and  much 
appreciated. 

The  Santa  Susana  Branch  has  moved 
from  a  store  where  it  had  a  corner  into 
an  entire  room  that  has  direct  access  to 
the  street.  The  room  will  be  furnished 
with   reading   table   and   chairs. 

Holy  Cross  Branch  (P.  O.  and  express 
Ventura)  and  Thousand  Oaks  Branch  (P.' 
O.  Triunfo ;  no  express)  were  established 
February   4,   1924.

For  the  past  two  years  statistics  for 
shipments  from  the  Ventura  County  Free 
Library  have  been  given  incorrectly  in 
News  Notes  of  California  Libraries.  The 
first  year  it  was  from  mLsinterpi-etation  of 
the  figures  given ;  the  second  year  it 
seems  to  have  been  a  plain  mistake.  To 
rectify  this  as  much  as  possible,  the 
following  correct  figures  are  given : 
Shipments  to  branches  (including  schools) 
1021-22,  1292  (17,993  items:  books 
16,649 ;  periodicals  86 ;  other  material

which  gutted  the  whole  building.  We 
saved  perhaps  80  volumes  wihich  students 
happened  to  have  drawn  out.  However, 
we  have  begun  to  build  anew  and  have 
accumulated  303  volumes  of  fiction  and 
reference.  We  have  just  carried  a 
$250,000  bond  issue  for  rebuilding  and 
are  guaranteed  funds  for  books  to  replace, 
in   part,    anyway,    our   loss. 

We  have  fitted  up  a  small  room  as  a 
library,  putting  therein  our  303  volumes, 
a  New  International  Encyclopedia,  fifteen 
current  magazines,  atlas,  dictionaries, 
year  books,  etc.  The  County  Library  has 
been  very  helpful  so  we  are  getting  on 
well. 

We  hope  to  have  some  additions  to 
report  next  time.

NEWS    NOTES    OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES. 


[April,  1924 


siou  was  called  to  order  by  Miss  Xorah 
McNeill,  librarian  of  the  Richmond  Public 
Library  and  president  of  the  Second 
District.  The  first  speaker  was  Byron 
Mauzy,  i^resident  of  the  Mechanics  Insti- 
tute, who  gave  a  history  of  the  Mechanics' 
Mercantile  Librai-j'.      (»S'ee  p.  ^5.) 

Mrs  Elizabeth  Gray  Potter,  librarian  of 
Mills  College,  who  recently  returned  from 
Frarce,  spoke  on  the  American  Library  in 
Paris. .  She  gave  a  very  illuminating  idea 
of  the  work  as  carried  on  by  the  staff 
of  librarians. 

Harry  Xoyes  Pratt,  editor  of  the  Over- 
land Monthly,  reviewed  briefly  the  history 
of  the  magazine  and  voiced  the  hope  that 
he  might  be  able  to  restore  its  old-time 
literaiy  flavor. 

Milton  J.  Ferguson.  State  Librarian, 
spoke  briefly  of  the  change  in  the  loca- 
tion of  the  Sutro  Branch  of  the  State  Li- 
brary from  the  Lane  Medical  Library 
Building  to  its  present  quarters  in  the 
San  Francisco  Public  Library,  Civic 
Center. 

Miss  Mary  Barmby,  Chairman  of  Com- 
mittee on  Seaman's  Library,  announced 
that  in  April  a  plea,  for  books  for  sailors 
would  be  made  and  asked  the  help  of  all 
librarians  pre.sent. 

The  question  of  personal  and  institu- 
tional membership  was  discussed  by  Miss 
Stella  Huntington  and  a  member  from  the 
First   District. 

Cliarles  S.  Greene  was  elected  nomina- 
tor for  the  First  District,  with  Miss  Edith 
Coulter,  as  alternate. 

Luncheon  was  served  to  about  one 
hundred  and  twenty  guests.  Miss  Carol 
Donnan  favored  the  assembly  with  two 
violin  solos  and  Miss  Melva  Farwell  with 
two  flute  solos.  Miss  Farwell  explained 
that  the  music  of  her  second  number,  a 
phantasy,  was  obtained  from  the  music 
department  of  the  San  Francisco  Public 
Library  and  was  the  only  place  from 
which  she  could  obtain  it. 

Oharles  S.  Greene,  librarian  of  the 
Oakland  Free  Librairy  and  president  of 
the  First  District  presided  at  the  after- 
noon ses'sion.  He  introduced  Mrs  Mary 
Roberts  Coolidge  who  spoke  on  "The 
author  and  his  audience."  Mrs  Coolidge 
said  in  part  that  all  the  arts  had  one 
thing  in  common,  that  they  must  have 
an  audience. 


A  letter  of  regret  that  illness  would 
prevent  his  attendance  was  read  from 
Charles  G.  Yale,  librarian  of  the  Bohe- 
mian Club,  who  was  to  have  talked  on 
Bohemian  authors.  Dane  Coolidge  very 
kindly  took  his  place  on  the  program  and 
talked  on  Western  authors  and  writers 
of  western  stories. 

Charles  Caldwell  Dobie,  author  and 
short  story  writer,  related  humorously 
his  early  experiences  as  a  writer ;  he 
closed  his  remarks  by  saying  that  he  had 
talked  uix)n  all  subjects  except  that 
assigTied  him,  his  novel,  "The  blood  red 
dawn." 

Frederick  O'Brien  told  how  he  wrote 
his  "\STiite  shadows  in  the  South  Seas" 
and  recounted  many  humorous  incidents 
connected  with  his  sojourn  there. 

Present  day  poets  and  poetry  was  the 
theme  of  Mrs  Edwin  Markham  of  New 
York.  Mrs  Markham  has  been  the  presi- 
dent of  the  Poetry  Society  of  New  York 
for  many  years  and  was  able  to  give 
freely   of  her  wide   experience. 

Miss  Edith  Hibberd  of  the  Oakland 
Public  Library  sang  two  groups  of  songs 
in  her  very  delightful  way.  The  musical 
program  for  the  day  was  arranged  by  Miss 
Fredericks,  head  of  the  music  department 
of  the  San  Francisco  Public  Librai"j'. 
The  meeting  was  well  attended,  both  dis- 
tricts  being   represented. 

AxicE  G.  Whitbeck,  Secretary. 

Third    District    Meeting. 

The  annual  meeting  of  the  Third  Dis- 
trict of  the  California  Library  Association 
was  held  on  Saturday,  March  8,  1924. 
at  the  Vallejo  Public  Librai"y.  Miss 
Estella  De  Ford,  president  of  the  district, 
presided,  and  in  the  absence  of  Miss  Clara 
B.  Dills,  Miss  Marjorie  Chilberg  acted  as 
secretary. 

A  word  of  welcome  was  given  by  S.  A. 
Copper,  president  of  the  Board  of  Trustees 
of  Yallejo  Public  Librarj'.  and  also  by  A. 
H.  Draughon,  Mayor  of  the  City  of 
Yallejo. 

A  short  business  meeting  was  held  at 
which  Miss  Leta  Hutchinson  was  elected 
nominator  for  the  district,  with  Miss 
Clara  B.  Dills  as  alternate.  Following, 
an  informal  discussion  of  library  prob- 
lems was  held,  and  each  member  present 
was  asked   to   name   the  most  interesting

book  lie  had  read  recently  aud  tell  in  a 
few  words  something  about  the  book. 
The  meeting  then  adjourned  till  after- 
noon. 

Those  present  were  taken  to  ^Nlare 
Island  where,  through  the  courtesy  of  the 
Commandant,  they  were  guests  of  the 
Vallejo  Public  Library  at  a  luncheon 
served   in   the  yard   cafeteria. 

Lunch  over,  the  party  was  escorted 
about  the  island  by  Chaplain  Hayes.  This 
proved  most  interesting  inasmuch  as 
very  few  had  visited  the  island  before. 
The  Rodman  Naval  Club  Library  and 
U.  S.  Hospital  Library  and  recreation 
rooms  were  of  special  interest.  The  party 
then  returned  to  Vallejo  where  the  meet- 
ing was  continued. 

Mrs  Zoe  D.  Moore  of  the  Seven  Ai'iS 
Reading  Room  in  the  Palace  of  Fine 
Arts  in  Sian  Francisco  talked  briefly 
regarding  the  work  of  the  organization 
and  extended  a  welcome  to  the  use  of  the 
valuable    material    housed    there. 

A  most  delightful  talk  was  then  given 
by  Mrs  Elizabeth  Gray  Potter,  of  Mills 
College,  on  the  work  in  the  American  Li- 
brary in  Paris.  The  library  was  estab- 
lished by  the  American  Librai-j-  Associa- 
tion during  the  war  for  the  use  of  the 
men  in  service.  With  the  end  of  the  war 
it  was  to  have  been  discontinued,  but  so 
many  requests  were  made  to  keep  it  open 
that  various  means  are  now  being  taken 
to  make  it  a  war  memorial.  All  nationali- 
ties and  classes  of  people  are  using  the 
library  and  it  is  felt  that  America  and 
American  literature  will  be  better  under- 
stood as  the  library  continues. 

Christopher  Nixon  of  Stag's  Leap.  Napa 
County,  then  spoke  on  "Tbe  library  from 
the  borrower's  view-point."  A  graduate 
of  Oxford,  ^Ir  Nixon  has  had  access  to 
the  British  Museum,  the  B'odleian  Li- 
brary and  other  large  libraries  of  Europe. 
He  said,  however,  that  nowhere  was  he 
able  to  get  better  service  than  in  the 
State   of  California. 

An  interesting  day  was  concluded  by 
Miss  Hastings  of  Sather  Gate  Book  Shop. 
She  told  of  her  work  with  children,  and  in 
her  charming  manner  told  one  of  the  old 
Persian  hero  tales,  "The  Birth  of  Rustam." 

The  meeting  was  the  largest  ever  held 
in  this  district,  52  being  present,  and 
much  credit  for  the  success  of  the  meet- 
ing should  go  to  the  Vallejo  library  and 


its    trustees    for    their    cooperation    aud 
hospitality.  Marjopje  Ciiilberg, 

Acting  Secretary. 

Fourth    District    Meeting. 

On  Wednesday,  February  27,  1924,  the 
annual  meeting  of  the  Fourth  District  of 
the  California  Library  Association  con- 
vened in  Merced  with  eighty-five  li- 
brarians from  the  ten  San  Joaquin  Valley 
counties  comprising  the  district  in  attend- 
ance. 

The  morning  session,  which  was  held  at 
the  County  Library,  opened  at  10.30  with 
the  greetings  to  the  visiting  librarians, 
followed  by  a  brief  business  session  at 
which  the  nominator  and  alternate  were 
elected,  to  serve  at  the  annual  election 
of  officers  of  the  association.  Miss  Essae 
M.  Culver  and  Miss  Gretcheu  Flower 
were  unanimously  elected. 

The  first  speaker  on  the  program  was 
Miss  Julia  Steffa,  Librarian  of  Kings 
County  Free  Library,  who  described 
some  of  the  literary  shrines  visited  on  a 
recent  trip  through  Eui'ope.  Beginning 
with  the  librai*y  carried  on  shipboard  she 
'od  us  on  to  the  Americau  Library  in 
Paris :  the  Vatican ;  the  burial  place  of 
Michael  Angelo  and  the  monument  of 
Dante  in  Florence ;  the  British  Museum ; 
Uni\"ersity  of  Oxford  :  Shakespeare's  birth- 
place :  to  Scotland  and  the  home  of  Burus, 
then  hack  through  ^lontreal  to  the  United 
States  and  home.  All  of  her  beai'ei-s 
cherish  a  hope  of  visiting  the  shrines  of 
which  so  attractive  a  glimpse  was  given. 

Miss  Ida  Huntington,  of  the  Stanislaus 
County  Library  staff,  gave  an  allegorical 
presentation  of  "The  sad  and  merry  tale 
of  a  county  library  assistant."  In  a 
humorous  and  whimsical  way  she  pre- 
sented for  consideration  many  ideas  and 
ideals  of  library  service,  and  her  paper 
was  original  and  greatly  appreciated. 

A  round  table  discussion  on  library 
problems  under  the  direction  of  Miss 
Mary  Harris,  of  Fresno  County,  was  next 
carried  on.  ]Mi.>--s  Pauline  Yager,  of 
Fresno  County,  spoke  on  children's  li- 
braries, and  contrasted  the  advantage  of 
a  small  library  with  a  larger  one.  Miss 
Martha  Johnson,  of  the  Taft  Library, 
spoke  on  "How  to  interest  the  public  in 
ucufiction  books"  and  ^Irs  Lucile  Isak- 
.son  of  Madera  led  a  discussion  on  special 
requests.

Fifth    District   Meeting. 

The  meeting  of  the  Fifth  District  of 
the  California  Library  Association  was 
held  in  Woodland,  March  20,  1924,  in  the 
Board  of  Trade  rooms  in  the  Yolo  County 
Courthouse. 

The  meeting  was  called  to  order  at 
11  o'clock  by  the  President,  Miss  Irma 
Cole,  who  extended  a  cordial  welcome  to 
all  present.  A  short  business  session 
followed.  Minutes  of  last  yeai-'s  meeting

mento City  Library  gave  an  intei'esting 
talk  on  "The  attitude  of  the  library 
worker  toward  his  work."  Miss  Pearl 
Blurdell  of  the  San  .Toaquin  County  Free 
Library  told  of  the  "Information  contest" 
which  the  library  held.  Four  hundred  and 
eighty  questions  were  received  during  two 
weeks,  one  hundred  and  fifteen  of  this 
number  required  some  research,  two  could 
not  be  answered  and  two  were  doubtful. 
A  few  minutes  were  given  to  informal 
diiscussion  on  questions  of  general  interest 
to  librarians,  after  which  the  meeting 
adjourned  to  visit  the  Woodland  City 
Library  and  Yolo  County  Free  Library, 
and  to  partake  of  a  luncheon  prepared 
by  the  ladies  of  the  Methodist  Church 
South.

curiputs  in  contemporary  literature,"  and 
Miss  Cornelia  D.  Provines  gave  a  most 
inLerep'ling  talk  on  "Contribution  of  the 
negro  to  American  literature,"  which 
ended  all  too  soon. 

A    rising   vote   of  thanks   was  given   to 
the   speakers   and   the  meeting  adjourned. 
Lily  M.  Tii.den,  Secretary. 

Sixth    District    Meeting. 

The  Sixth  District  of  the  California 
Library  Association  met  at  Alhamhra  on 
January  26,  1924.  There  were  about  300 
prestnt.  that  being  100  more  than  last 
year.  The  morning  session  was  opened 
by  an  invocation  by  Rev.  S.  J.  Kennedy, 
a  member  of  the  Alhambra  Library  Board. 
.T.  L.  Davidson  gave  the  address  of  wel- 
come. He  said,  "In  books  lies  the  soul 
of  all  past  time.  If  libraries  could  settle 
some  of  the  unsettled  problems  of  today 
through  these  books,  it  would  be  a  fine 
thing." 

Tlie  secretary  read  the  part  of  the  con- 
stitution applying  to  the  election  of  a 
memlier  of  the  nominating  committee. 
Mrs  Brewitt  nominated  Miss  Artena  M. 
Chapin,  who  was  unanimoxisly  elected. 
Miss  Faith  Smith  was  elected  as  alter- 
nate. Communications  Avere  read  from 
Miss  Gibson  regarding  memberships  for 
the  California  Library  Association,  from 
Miss  Zaidee  Brown  with  reference  to  her 
"Lantern  Lists,"  and  greetings  from 
Charles  S.  Greene,  president  of  the  First 
District. 

Miss  Jeannette  M.  Drake,  president  of 
the  California  Library  Association,  gave 
the  plans  for  the  annual  meeting  in  April. 

Miss  Marion  J.  Ewing,  assistant  libra- 
rian, Pomona  College  Library,  gave  a 
very  illuminating  talk  on  libraries  and 
other  things  in  China.  She  said  in  part : 
"Although  China  is  a  very  dirty  place,  the 
tourists  look  in  vain  on  the  streets  for 
scraps  of  paper  bearing  Chinese  charac- 
ters. T'here  is  great  reverence  for  printed 
words  even  among  illiterates,  and  papers 
are  taken  to  nearby  shrines  to  be  rever- 
ently burned.  The  story  of  libraries 
begins  with  Confucius,  who  lived  about 
250  years  before  the  Alexandrian  Library 
was  built.  For  two  hundred  years  after 
Confucius,  literature  flourished.  Then 
Prince  Chen  wished  to  abolish  feudalism, 
and  in  order  to  do  this  he  commanded 
that  all  books  be  destroyed,  and  that  the

scliohirs  be  boheadod ;  but  some  of  the 
sciiolars  mauasod  to  conceal  a  large 
quautity  of  Ooufiician  literature  in  a  Avell, 
so  that  this  was  savetl.  Literature  flour- 
isheil  aaain  iu  the  Ilan  dynasty  about 
200  years  A.  D.  when  the  emperor  ordered 
the  Chinese  classics  to  be  engraved  on 
stone  tablets,  or  pillars,  so  that  they 
never  could  be  destroyed.  Real  libraries 
were  established.  About  1773  Emperor 
Chun  Ijiing  decided  that  literature  was 
not  appreciated.  He  ordered  that  his 
subjects  should  turn  in  all  manuscripts 
of  any  value.  He  appointed  a  director 
who  read  thousands  of  these  and  from 
them  chose  3.500  works.  One  thousand 
five  hundred  clerks  were  employed  for  ten 
year.j  to  make  seven  copies  of  each  of 
these.  Only  three  of  these  are  left,  and 
the  Chinese  are  very  eager  to  have  them 
copied,  but  it  would  cost  $10,000  for  100 
copies.  No  Chinese  publishing  house  is 
willing  to  undertake  this.  One  collection 
occupies  one-fifth  of  a  mile,  and  is  classi- 
fied by  a  scheme  made  60O  years  before. 
The  same  classification  is  used  in  libraries 
now.  but  the  Chinese  are  not  satisfied  Avith 
the  scheme.  At  the  present  time  libraries 
may  be  divided  into  tliree  cla.'^ses :  Old 
libraries ;  libraries  connected  with  foreign 
inissions  ;  and  government  and  municipal 
librai-ies  influenced  by  foreigners. 

Among  the  old  libraries  are  30  Buddhist 
libraries,  exact  duplicates  of  one  another. 
Priests  are  allowed  to  take  one  book  at  a 
time  from  rheso  collections.  Once  a  year 
the  public  may  look  at  these  books  under 
the  supervision  of  the  priests.  The  books 
are  in  old  Chinese  characters  seldom  used 
now.  There  is  a  public  library  in  Nan- 
king in  an  old  building,  with  glass  cases, 
used  only  by  scholars.  One  must  give 
notice  a  day  in  advance  when  one  wishes 
to  use  certain  books.  Scholars  have  their 
own  private  libraries  of  Chinese  classics 
of  great  age.  An  outgrowth  of  the  libra- 
ries of  the  missions  was  a  library  school 
started  by  Miss  Elizabeth  Wood  at  Han- 
kow, which  is  the  Chi(;ago  of  China.  Miss 
Wood's  graduates  lect'ire  on  library  work. 
She  is  trying  to  have  some  of  the  in- 
demnity money  spent  on  a  natioml 
libra; y.  A  governmenv:  library  is  situated 
at  Nanking  where  Mr  Hung  is  librarian. 
He  is  a  graduate  of  the  New  York  State 
Library  School  and  his  library  is  like  an 
American     library.      An     imposing     new 


library  building  is  in  course  of  erection. 
A  very  impressive  library  building  may 
be  seen  at  Soochow  where  a  charming 
lilirarian  shows  one  through  the  different 
rooms,  but  not  a  book  is  to  be  seen. 
China  is  in  the  imitative  stage  of  library 
work  and  educational  work.  They  will 
accept  the  best  and  eliminate  the  worth- 
less, and  will  surely  create  something  that 
will  be  a  real  contribution  to  the  world  of 
letters." 

J.  E.  C4oodwin,  librarian  of  the  Southern 
Branch  of  the  University  of  Califom'a, 
spoke  on  some  of  the  problems  in  his 
library.  He  said  :  "I  left  my  membership 
in  the  California  Library  Association  in 
1912  and  went  to  Texas.  I  returned  to 
library  work  in  California  this  year. 
When  asked  to  speak  at  this  meeting  I 
\-isualized  an  informal  gathering  of  one- 
third  the  number  here.  In  Texas  a  meet- 
ing of  the  whole  state  is  attended  by  about 
seventy-five.  Because  I  have  come  from 
there  so  recently,  I  bring  you  greetings 
from  that  small  association.  I  deeply 
appreciate  the  very  cordial  welcome  re- 
ceiA'ed  from  Miss  Fargo  and  other  members 
of  the  staff  of  the  University  Library. 
Our  problems  are  paralleled  in  any  sizable 
college  or  university  in  the  country,  and 
they  are  the  same  as  those  in  the  in- 
structional departments.  Our  physical 
plant  is  inadequate  and  not  susceptible  to 
extension.  The  university  has  announced 
that  instruction  shall  be  maintained  on 
the  same  high  standard  as  at  Berkeley, 
therefore  the  library  must  be  first  class. 
The  Southern  Branch  is  borrowing  very 
generously  from  Berkeley,  far  more  than 
we  could  from  any  other  librarJ^  In 
making  purchases  we  must  consider  what 
shall  be  excluded.  In  accepting  gifts  we 
must  determine  whether  the  same  stand- 
ards shall  be  applied  as  we  apply  to  pur- 
chases. The  responsibility  of  selection 
lies  in  large  measure  with  college  faculties. 
The  library  buys  largely  for  non-labora- 
toi-y  departments,  but  producing  scientific 
men  are  those  who  insist  upon  first  class 
laboratory  equipment  and  first  class  maga- 
zines and  books." 

Miss  Helen  T.  Kennedy,  assistant  libra- 
rian of  the  Los  Angeles  Public  Library, 
conducted  a  very  lively  symposium  on  the 
modern  novel. 

The  afternoon  program  consisted  of 
music    by    local    artists,    stories    told    by

Seventh    District    Meeting. 

The  Seventh  District  of  the  California 
Library  Association  held  its  annual  meet- 
in°-  Saturday,  April  12,  1924,  at  the 
Humboldt  County  Free  Library,  Eureka. 
The  meeting  was  preceded  by  an  informal 
luncheon. 

Those  in  attendance  were  :  Mrs  Florence 
MeClaske.v.  president ;  Miss  Ida  M. 
Reasan,  Miss  Mona  Kinney,  Miss  Edna 
Davis,  Miss  Georgia  Davis.  Humboldt 
County  Free  Library ;  H.  A.  Kendall, 
Mrs'  Helen  Bartlett,  Eureka  City  Library  ; 
Miss  Eva  Manning,  Eureka  High  School : 
and  Miss  Ruth  Larimer,  Humboldt  State

iliss  Ida  M.  Reagan  was  elected  nomi- 
nator and  H.  A.  Kendall,  alternate,  to 
attend  the  annual  meeting  at  Pasadena. 

After  the  business  session  there  fol- 
lowed a  rouuid  table  discussion  of  the 
program  of  the  annual  meeting  of  the 
association  which  had  arrived  that  morn- 
ing. The  members  present  were  inter- 
ested in  the  program  numbers  and  ex- 
pressed themselves  as  wishing  it  were 
possible  for  them  to  attend. 

Georgia  A.  Davis,  Secretary. 

Ninth    District    Meeting, 

The  members  of  the  Ninth  District  of 
the  California  Library  Association  attend- 
ing the  meeting,  which  was  held  in  Yreka 
February  1  and  2,  1924,  arrived!  there 
late  Friday  afternoon,  and  were  met  at 
the  train  by  Miss  Thelma  Braekett,  presi- 
dent of  the  district,  who  had  made 
arraagements  for  the  entertainment  of 
the  members  in  private  homes.  Later  all 
gathered  and  again  were  grateful  to  Miss 
Braekett  for  her  thoughtfulness  when  as 
her  guests  they  partook  of  a  turkey 
dinner. 

At  S  p.m.  the  meeting  was  formally 
called  to  order  in  the  public  librai"y.  Miss 


Braekett  presiding.  After  a  cordial  wel- 
come to  the  members  and  friends,  the 
president  introduced  Milton  J.  FergTison, 
State  Librarian,  who  made  a  few  general 
remarks,  and  then  delighted  his  listeners 
by  reading  a  clever  satire  on  Geoi'ge 
Washington,  Mary  Queen  of  Scots,  and 
U.  S.  Grant,  from  Tom  Masson's  Annual 
for  1923'. 

"The  door  in  the  wall"  was  the  subject 
chosen  by  a  "far-away"  borrower,  Mrs 
Clarence  Soule,  for  her  inspiring  talk. 
The  "door"  proved  to  be  the  county 
library  and  the  books  that  had  been  made 
available  to  her  and  her  family  through 
the  agency  of  that  institution.  She  de- 
scribed in  a  delightful  manner  the  syste- 
matic way  she  had  read  and  studied  for 
years. 

At  10  a.m.  February  2,  the  second  ses- 
sion was  called  to  order.  J.  W.  Millei-, 
Superintendent  of  Schools,  who  had  lived 
and  taught  in  Siskiyou  before  the  era  of 
the  county  library,  spoke  most  apprecia- 
tively of  what  had  been  accomplished 
througih  the  library  service  to  schools. 

Mrs  Lila  G.  Adams  was  the  speaker  on 
children's  books.  Her  experiment  of  per- 
sonally sending  postals  to  all  the  school 
children  in  Trinity  County  during  Chil- 
dren's Book  Week  and  asking  them  to 
write  descriptions  of  their  favorite  books 
was  most  interesting  and  the  audience 
was  certainly  entertained  by  the  reading 
of  a  few  of  the  cards  she  received  in  reply. 

In  the  absence  of  Miss  Edna  Hewitt, 
Librarian  of  Sutter  County,  who  was  to 
have  led  the  round  table.  Miss  BlancOie 
Chalfant  opened  the  discussion.  Problems 
that  are  always  present  in  every  library 
were  discussed  to  the  advantage  of  all 
present. 

Mrs  Lila  Adams  was  elected  nominator 
for  the  district,  with  Miss  Chalfant  as 
alternate. 

Several  custodians  of  Siskiyou  County 
were  in  attendance,  also  a  number  of 
local  people.  Yreka  being  rather  far  from 
the  center  of  population,  made  it  difficult 
for  some  members  to  attend.  The  meet- 
ing, however,  made  up  in  enthusiasm  wliat 
it  lacked  in  attendance.

EuDOKA  Gaeoutte,  in  charge. 

The  California  Department  aims  to

liooks  on  the  history  and  description, 
resources  and  industries  of  the  State,  as 
well  as  the  works  of  California  authors 
in  all  departments  of  literature.  These 
!'e  made  accessible  by  means  of  a  card 
•■ifalog.  Full  names'  and  biographical 
si  clclu'.s  of  California  authors,  artists, 
musicians,  pioneers  and  early  settlers  are 
bein?  secured,  together  with  Iheir  phoro- 
grapl  s.  The  collection  of  bound  poi'I- 
odicals  is  quite  large.  The  Department 
also  contains  about  9000  bound  volumes 
of  newspaper;,',  a  file  of  which  is  being 
indexed  with  reference  to  the  history  of 
the  State.  Students  will  be  assisted  in

Pioneers  and  Early  Settlers. 

The  card  of  Fordyce  J.  Benjamin  is 
most  interesting.  Mr  Benjamin  was  a 
member  of  Stevenson's  famous  regiment 
which  arrived  in  1847.  He  settled  in 
Sonoma  County  but  in  1876  moved  to 
Lassen  County,  where  he  was  a  highly 
respected  resident  until  his  death  which 
occurred  at  Susanville  in  1S9G. 

The  card  of  Mrs  Benjamin  has  also 
been  received.  Martha  Anna  (Moi"g-'an) 
Benjamin  arrived  with  her  parents'  in 
1849  and  was  married  in  retahnna  to 
Fordyce  .1.  Benjamin  in  1850. 

William  Oscar  Carpenter  arrived  in 
1850.  His  experiences  in  tlie  mines  and 
in  business  in  Sacramento  were  both 
exciting  and  imique.  His  letters  home 
were  unusually  illuminating  as  to  the 
life  of  the  times.  Extracts  from  these 
letters  have  recently  been  published  under 
the  title,  "A  California  Pioneer  of  the 
Fifties."  Mr  Carpenter  returned  to  his 
home  in  Michigan  where  he  spent  the 
remainder  of  his  life.  In  the  '80's  he 
revisited  the  scenes  of  his  California 
experiences   and  expressed  regret  that  he

SARATOGA  SPRINGS  AGAIN. 


By  Milton  J.  Ferguson,  Librarian,  California  State  Library. 


Do  .voii  remember  ]!I18  at  Saratoga 
Springs?  War.  World  swayiug  projects. 
Growing  onthusinsm  for  tlie  tasks  be- 
queathed by  Louisyille  in  1917.  Uni- 
formed librarians  \ylio  someho\y  had 
acquired,  ahuost,  a  martial  stride.  The 
book,  a  fulcrum  on  which  to  elevate  a 
nation  to  a  higher  plane  of  virtue  and 
wisdom,  (xreed  began  the  great  conflict ; 
knowledge,  the  printed  word  should  end  it. 

The  records  of  the  A.  L.  A.  set  out 
that  (>20  persons  attended  that  191S  con- 
ference. But  in  that  year  there  was  a 
largeness,  of  ideas,  of  ideals,  if  not  of 
numbers,  which  filled  the  old  political 
convention  hall,  and  made  a  grand  com- 
Ijany  of  those  who  thrice  daily  passed 
beneath  the  crystal  chandeliers  and  on 
irito  that  oc-ean  of  a  dining  room.  Some- 
tliing  was  at  stake.  Tomorrow  might  see 
a  great  victory — for  none  could  contem- 
plate defeat — 'and  each  must  he  ready  to 
d()  or  die. 

Is  it,  I  wonder,  that  quality,  or  trait, 
or  knack  of  the  imagination  which  subtle- 
transforms  the  yesterdays  into  perfect 
(lays,  or  was  it  fact  which  makes  me  be- 
lieve today  that  in  li'n.S  librarians  regis- 
terefl  at  Saratoga  Springs  went  to  meet- 
ings with  puritanical  regularity  and 
Ijunctuality?  I  can  not  recall  whether  at 
that  war  conference  golf  had  not  yet 
broken  out  in  the  ranks,  or  whether  the 
task  in  hand  was  so  all  absorbing  that 
sticks  had  been  forgotten  in  the  cloak 
closet  back  home.  Certainly  I  have  no  recol- 
liction  of  hearing  anyone  boast  that  he 
had  a  perfect  score  in  session  attendance  : 
ever.v  meeting  avoided. 

B.v  1!>24,  war,  in  libi-arv  circles,  had 
l)ecome  a  memory.  Enthusiasms  were  in 
leash.  Attendance  had  doubled  over  six 
years  earlier  but  the  convention  hall  had 
become  a  reechoing  barn,  which  towards 
the  end  of  the  conference  President  Jen- 
nings showed  good  judgment  in  abandon- 
ing. Uniforms  had  taken  refuge  among 
the  moth  balls.  Golf  had  become  a  pas- 
sion. Section  meetings  were  more 
numerous  than  ever,  and  perhaps  more 
scantily  attended.  Bookmen,  book- 
binders, caterers  to  library  needs  were  in 
force,  and  really  had  much  of  excellent 
\  alue  to  show,  if  one  had  time  and  energj- 
to  see.  Five  o'clock  tea  was  substituted 
for  war-like  feiTor.  And  the  book  itself 
had  taken  the  military  feather  out  of  its 
cap,  and  become  a  genial  old  friend, 
(h»l)endable,  safe  and  sane,  but  incapable 
of  leading  the  charge  in  the  face  of  big 
l)erthas   and  mustard  gas, 

Saratoga  Springs  is  a  nice  old  town, 
set  down  in  the  fold  of  gentle  rolling 
hills,   made  green   with   tine  trees.     Some 

33352 


of  its  residences  reflect  the  glory  of  an 
amititious  past.  Without  any  wish  to  be 
unfair,  one  might  deduce  that  it  rather 
slumbered  during  a  greater  part  of  the 
year,  and  awoke  on  our  national  birthday 
to  gather  in  the  fruits  of  July  and  August. 
Then  the  summer  visitor  comes,  bringing 
with  him  the  babel  of  tongues  spoken  on 
the  sidewalks  of  New  York  and  in  its 
foreign  quarters  but  strangely  old  world 
sounding  to  western  ears.  The  race  tra<k 
becomes  alive  again.  Crowds  throng  and 
hope,  and  hope  again  :  ponies  are  variable 
stars.  The  springs  still  bubble;  and 
visitors  quaff  the  waters  from  open  faucet 
or  from  prettily  labeled  bottle,  according 
to  their  economic  philosophy :  now,  in 
solemn  belief  that  it  will  reduce  an  out  of 
bounds  girth  line,  or  take  the  limp  out  of 
;i  rlieitmatic  foot :  then,  as  a  stunt  on  a 
summer  picnic,  just  to  feel  the  rising 
carbonated   bubbles   tickle  the  nose. 

The  old  (irand  Union  Hotel  is  worth 
one  visit  to  the  little  cit.v,  where  I  suppose 
a  certain  potato  dish  got  its  name,  and 
where  histor.v  tells  ns  Benedict  Arnold 
showed  himself  a  dashing  hero  ;  I  should 
not  care  to  argue  the  affirmative  for  a 
second  visit.  It  seems  to  date  Itack  a 
century  or  longer  to  Israel  Putnam  whose 
v.olf-capturing  episode  pictured  on  an  old 
swinging  sign  board  told  the  traveler 
where  to  alight.  This  board  is  still  to  be 
found  on  the  back  veranda  of  the  old 
hostelry  :  one  can  puzzle  over  the  serious- 
ness of  that  adventure  in  which,  if  the 
iirtist  be  not  at  fault,  the  General  all  but 
lost  his  pants  but  not  through  the 
ferocity  of  the  wolf.  Those  endless 
\erandas  speak  of  a  day  before  the  auto- 
mobile came,  of  a  day  when  the  rocking 
chair  had  not  escaped  from  domesticity. 
The  high  ceilings  and  spacious  bedrooms 
'■emind  us  that  once  building  was  cheaj) : 
but  the  absence  of  private  baths  makes  us 
know  that  there  was  a  time  when  the 
Saturday  ])ath  was  an  institution  and  not 
a  vaudeville  joke.  And  were  it  not  for 
the  fact  that  it  became  a  sort  of  prison  in 
which  one  served  an  indeterminate  sen- 
tence thrice  daily,  the  dining  room  would 
have  been  an  interesting  place  :  if  for  no 
other  reason  that  that  it  harbored  a  larger 
numlier  of  negro  captains,  waiters,  and 
Inis  boys  of  greater  diversity  of  color, 
iige,  figure  and  gait  than  can  probably  be 
found,  in  a  single  body,  elsewhere  in  con- 
tinental America.  I  can  shut  m.v  eyes 
now  and  see  that  endless  room  fading 
away  towards  a  far  distant  kitchen, 
whence  it  were  sometimes  doubtful 
whether  a  colored  man  would  ever  return. 
Reason  alone  argued  that  he  would,  in 
hope,  no  houbt,  that  the  diner  like  a 
certain  traveler  of  old  might  have  buried

[July,  1924 


a  talent,  more  or  less,  beneath  his  napkin. 
But  if  food  came  slowly,  talk  \yas  abun- 
dant :  bass  and  treble,  laughter,  solemn 
declaration,  chatter,  shop  talk  and  talk,  so 
intermingled,  such  a  hash  of  sound  that 
one  coming  into  the  room  unaware  could 
not  have  told  race,  business,  or  belief  of 
the  assembled  diners. 

That  old  convention  hall,  I  wonder 
w'hat  stories  it  could  tell.  It  must  have 
peen  men  and  sights  to  furnish  material 
for  a  dozen  political  novels.  With  up  state 
and  down  crowded  into  its  five  thousand 
seats,  it  was  probably  a  satisfactory  place 
to  speak  in  ;  but  with  a  thousand  librar- 
ians sprinkled  over  its  ground  floor  it  was 
anything  but  inspirational  to  the  speaker. 
Somehow  his  Avords  seemed  inclined  to 
come  tumbling  back  at  him.  The  first 
part  of  a  sentence  hopefully  launched 
reached  the  further  walls  and  rolled  back 
in  a  fairly  successful  attempt  to  choke 
.the  period  down  the  orator's  throat. 
There  was  something  pathetic  in  our  effort 
to  use  that  giant's  reading  stand.  One 
questioned  whether  Tammany  tigers  were 
tall  enough  to  read  from  it  in  comfort,  or 
wbether  their  stuff  was  all  extempo- 
raneous. The  paper  covering  which  once 
concealed  roof  beams  had  yawning  holes, 
here  and  there ;  and  these  ragged 
streamers  murmured  of  ghosts  of  bygone 
days,  and  men,  and  customs.  It  was 
like,  to  speak  in  modern  terms,  a  bottle 
of  ginger  ale  the  next  morning,  tepid,  the 
fizz    all   gone. 

As  a  sort  of  echo  of  the  year's  activi- 
ties of  the  Temporary  Library  Training 
Board,  the  first  general  session  was  de- 
voted to  the  subject  of  education  for  li- 
Inarianship.  W^hile  the  speakers  differed 
in  the  handling  of  their  topics,  there  was 
unanimity  in  the  conviction  that  training 
is  essential.  One  could  not  tell,  however, 
Avhether  that  session's  doings  would  be 
the  powder  train  leading  to  the  dynamite 
of  the  evening's  council  meeting  which 
should  blow  the  works  to  that  same  far 
region,  the  graveyard  of  the  enlarged 
program.  At  New  York  in  April  some  of 
the  library  school  people  were  in  bullish 
mood :  they  wanted  to  toss  the  Avhole 
business.  But  when  the  council  gathered, 
the  rules  of  the  game  Avere  stated — who 
could  A'ote  and  avIio  niitst  simply  listen — • 
Avhen  the  report  of  the  temporary  board 
Avas  read,  and  its  recommendations,  not 
a  voice  was  raised  in  opposition.  Some, 
seemingly,  were  armed  with  formidable 
antagonistic  documents ;  and  word  had 
gone  the  rounds  that  the  fight  would  be  to 
the  finish.  But  quietly,  soberly,  motion 
Avas  made  accepting  the  recommenda- 
tions and  thanking  the  committee  for  its 
excellent  Avork.    When  the  vote  was  taken 


the  uo&s  Avere  unanimously  absent,  or 
speechless.  Thus  did  the  A.  L.  A.  in  its 
somewhat  ponderous  fashion  take  another 
definite  step  towards  the  library  of 
tomorrow. 

Henceforth  training  for  librarianship 
becomes  the  business  of  associated  li- 
brarians. It  is  easily  to  be  seen  that  the 
success  of  the  profession,  in  its  primary 
intent  to  give  book  service  to  a  nation, 
will  be  gaged  very  largely  by  the  results 
of  tliis  combined  effort  to  secure  a  better 
trained  personnel.  What  may  become  of 
the  Association  of  Library  Schools,  which, 
Avhile  no  doubt  it  has  accomplished  much, 
has  seemingly  been  deeply  interested  in 
building  a  high  barricade  about  its  own 
corporate  body,  rQmains  yet  to  be  deter- 
mined. Business  men,  note  the  action  of 
the  Carnegie  Corporation  on  this  subject, 
agree  that  in  any  field  the  first  considera- 
tion must  be  given  to  the  man  on  the  job. 
Good  as  has  been  the  product  of  the  li- 
brary schools  of  the  past,  it  must  be  made 
better.  We  may  now  reasonably  hope 
that  the  makeshifts  and  scrimpings  of  the 
schools  may  be  replaced  by  modern 
machinery.  Poverty  is  after  all  not  one 
of  the  cai'dinal  virtues. 

President  Jennings  deserves  high  praise 
for  his  restraint  in  framing  general  ses- 
sions. He  kept  them  down  to  four ;  and 
even  then  one  Avas  a  joint  affair  with  the 
College  and  Reference  Section,  and  the 
Special  Libraries  Association.  Further- 
more, this  executive  whom  Ave  of  the  west 
claim  as  our  own  had  a  presidential  mes- 
sage of  excellent  merit.  In  a  spirit  of 
kindly  humor,  he  pointed  out  some  of  the 
pitfalls  Avhich  yawn  before  the  library 
world  so  eager  to  undertake  community 
tasks  of  all  kinds  Avhether  by  any  stretch 
of  authority  they  rightfully  come  within 
the  library  field.  Flaws  are  easily  noted : 
the  other  fellow's  mote  becomes  a  granite 
Ijoulder.  But  Mr.  Jennings  went  further : 
in  logical,  understandable  manner,  he  set 
doAvn  some  of  the  things  which  libraries 
should  undertake  Avith  renewed  vigor  and 
enthusiasm.  Adult  education  took  such 
Ijrominence  that  it  may  be  designated  as 
the  keynote  of  the  convention — that,  with 
training  for  librarianship  as  a  harmonious 
minor.  No  doubt  this  fine  presidential 
message  Avill  soon  find  Avide  circulation  in 
one  of  the  library  publications ;  as  I  hope, 
too.  may  the  able  confirming  words  of  Dr. 
Alexander  Meiklejohn  who  so  splendidly 
rounded  out  the  program  on  the  evening 
of  July  4. 

But  if  general  sessions  were  fewer,  the 
average  Avas  kept  up  by  the  multiplicity 
of  meetings  of  round  tables,  sections  and 
allied  organizations.  What  i*ecourse  is 
there    for   a    poor   librarian    with    but   a

sins:li'  sot  of  brains  when  he  sees  such 
teiuptius  food  simultaueoiisly  disphiyed 
ou  tables  so  far  apart?  If  he  goes  one 
phice  he  may  not  be  in  another ;  and  as 
yet  it  is  scarcely  the  custom  to  drop  in, 
say,  at  the  Children's  Librarian's  Section 
for  a  mental  cocktail,  pass  on  to  Catalog 
Section  for  an  inspiring  entree,  hurry  for- 
ward for  the  roast  l>eef  served  by  the  Law 
Librarian,  and  settle  cosily  down  for 
dessert  and  demi-tasse  with  the  vSpecial 
Librarians.  We  may  come  to  such  a  pass. 
On  no  half  day,  excepting,  of  course, 
when  general  sessions  wei'e  held,  were 
there  fewer  than  seven  meetings  in  prog- 
ress ;  the  maximum  was  ten.  We  were 
put  to  it  in  our  childhood  to  get  our 
money's  worth  at  a  three  ring  circus :  at 
the  A.  L.  A.  we  cash  in  on  that  early 
training. 

Personally,  I  took  pleasure  in  finding 
f  ut  what  people  are  reading  in  Boston  : 
find  count  the  effort  on  that  evening  worth 
while  in  that  it  gave  me  opportunity-  to 
know  Frank  Chase,  a  sort  of  fellow  con- 
sj^irator,  who  made  out  a  good  case  for 
iIk^sh  people  of  the  great  cod  fish  center. 
Hooks  speak  a  language  intelligible  to 
nil  sections  of  our  great  commonwealth. 
And  if  we  have  acquired  the  monotony  of 
uniformity  in  dress,  habits  and  thought, 
we  at  the  same  time  profit  by  the  strength 
inherent  in   national   homogeneity. 

But  I  would  be  insincere  if  I  did  not 
confess  particular  satisfaction  in  the  meet- 
ing of  the  League  of  Library  Commissions. 
Tlie  program  was  brief  and  pointed.  It 
had  certain  Gallic  qualities :  it  was 
divided  into  three  parts.  There  was  pro- 
pounded the  query  what  is  the  respon- 
sibility of  the  League  for  the  machinery 
of  our  library  system,  its  personnel,  and 
its  return  to  the  stockholders  in  the  cor- 
poration, the  people.  The  new  state  li- 
brarian of  Pennsylvania,  Miss  Anna  A. 
ISIacDonald,  responded  to  part  one, 
Charles  E.  Ru.sh  of  Indianapolis  took 
the  second,  and  Sydney  B.  Mitchell  of 
the  L^niversity  of  California  concluded. 
When  these  three  excellent  papers  appear 
in  print  I  earnestly  recommend  that  they 
be  given  the  study  and  attention  to  which 
they  are  entitled. 

The  A.  L.  A.  is  busily  engaged  planning 
for  its  fiftieth  birthday  in  1020.  It  is 
thinkin?  of  a  permanent  home  which  shall 
become  an  informational  and  inspirational 
library  center  for  America.  It  is  looking 
forward  and  working  toward  a  member- 
ship of  10,000  persons.  It  is  planning 
surveys,  catalogs  and  exhibits,  all  of  which 
may  reasonably  l>e  considered  a  part  of 
the  semi-centennial  festival.  Every  item 
in  this  program  will  repay  the  profession 
for  the  pains  and   labor  necessary  in  its 


accomplishment.  But  in  this  well  doing 
let  us  not  forget  that  complete  success 
will  only  come  to  the  library  forces  when 
every  American  is  potentially  served  with 
information  and  books.  Not  every  citizen 
ol  this  nation  will  care  to  become  a  book 
worm  for  profit  or  for  pleasure  ;  but  the 
system  must  nevertheless  be  completed. 
As  the  count  stands  today  half  of  our 
population  has  no  book  service  ;  and  it  is 
probably  the  part  which  stands  in  great- 
est need.  ^len,  women,  and  children  in 
scattered  rural  sections,  out  on  the  great 
plains  of  the  west,  in  the  hills  of  the 
southern  states,  in  forest  and  back 
country,  in  hamlet  and  small  town,  those 
who  lack  the  inspirational  influences  of 
bigness  in  the  cities,  and  have  lost  touch 
with  the  fresh  charm  of  a  new  land :  to 
these  millions  of  our  population  the  li- 
brary must  minister.  Can  not  the  A.  L. 
A.  evolve  a  plan  by  which  such  sections 
of  our  country  may  be  enabled  to  help 
themselves?  It  will  require  money,  per- 
haps in  no  small  sums,  it  will  take  hard 
work  on  the  part  of  fai"-seeing  executives, 
it  may  involve  extensive  demonstrations 
of  a  nature  so  removed  from  the  habits  of 
the  past  as  to  appear  revolutionary  :  but 
the  task  must  be  grappled  with.  The  A. 
L.  A.  alone  is  in  position  to  act :  singly  or 
in  smaller  groups  fair  results  ma.v  not  be 
readily  won.  In  certain  favored  states  the 
library  and  the  child  are  arriving  at  an 
understandable  basis  :  adult  education  will 
develop  and  flower  with  increasing  vigor. 
What  we  need  now  is  to  make  the  move- 
ment more   or  less  uniformly   national. 

This  year  entertainment  was  not 
stressed :  some  comparatively  few  stole 
away  now  and  then  for  a  round  of  golf : 
the  children's  librarians  served  a  cup  of 
tea  as  a  sort  of  stimulant  to  renewed  talk 
on  library  i>roblems :  and  after  tea  for  an 
hour  or  two  a  group  tried  the  charms  of  a 
syncopated  orchestra  for  that  stiffness 
contracted  from  long  sitting  on  wooden 
chairs.  Yaddo  opened  its  hospitable  doors, 
and  the  members  in  utmost  freedom  en- 
joyed its  art  treasures,  its  books,  its  wide 
flung  lawns  and  magnificent  views ; 
though  they  were  probably  saddened  at 
the  stor.y  of  the  burden  of  calamity 
heaped  upon  its  builder,  the  Trask  family. 
Lake  George  called  the  early  risers  for  a 
pleasant  motor  trip  over  rolling  hills.  The 
view  from  Mount  MacGregor.  where 
President  Grant  passed  his  last  days, 
repaid  the  spin  to  its  crest.  But  other- 
wise it  was  a  business  meeting,  working 
smoothly  because  of  the  growing  efficiency 
and  wisdom  of  the  headquarters  .staff,  a 
business  meeting  of  quality,  with  lots  of 
unprosrammed  talk  mornin?,  noon  and 
night.

THE  ANNUAL   MEETING  OF  THE   CALIFORNIA   LIBRARY  ASSOCIATION 
AND  OF  THE   CALIFORNIA   COUNTY   LIBRARIANS. 

By  Stella  Huntington,  Librarian,  Santa  Clara  County  Free  Library. 


The  twenty-ninth  annual  meeting  of  the 
California  Library  Association  was  held 
at  the  Hotel  Huntington,  Pasadena,  April 
28-30,  1D24.  The  California  County  Li- 
brarian.s'  joined  their  fifteenth  annual  con- 
vention with  the  C.  L.  A.,  but  had  a 
special  county  program  on  May  1st. 

The  sessions  opened  at  10.00  a.m.  on 
Monday  in  the  lovely  ballroom  of  the 
hotel.  Miss  Jeanette  M.  Drake,  president, 
presided.  As  the  maj^or  was  out  of  town, 
Mr  J.  W.  Wood,  chairman  of  the  advisory 
library  board,  welcomed  the  visitors  to 
I'asadena.  There  wa.s  a  short  business 
meeting.  The  members  present  voted  to 
have  a  "Convention  registration  fee"'  of 
.$1.00  for  each  annual  meeting,  to  be  paid 
by  each  meml>er  in  attendance  so  that  the 
increased  expense  of  the  meetings  may  be 
])aid  by  the  members  that  attend  the 
meetings  and  get  the  benefit  and  pleasure 
from  them.  Miss  Ethel  Richardson,  assist- 
ant state  superintendent  of  public  instruc- 
tion of  California,  gave  a  most  interesting 
talk  on  "Adult  education  :  the  significant 
factor  in  American  life."  Dr.  Archibald 
Ronton,  Dean  of  College  of  Arts  and 
I'ure  Science,  New  York  L'niversity,  gave 
a  scholarly  and  interesting  paper  on 
"The  function  of  literature." 

On  Monday  afternoon  Miss  Junia  M. 
"Wolff,  music  supervisor  of  the  Pasadena 
Public  Schools,  led  the  librarians  in  a 
community  sing.  The  favorite  song  seemed 
to  be  "Marcheta."  This  was  followed  by 
an  address,  "River  of  life,"  by  Miss  Madge 
.Tension,  of  "Sunwise  turn"  fame.  After 
this  general  session  the  "Municipal  libra- 
ries'" section  met,  presided  over  by  Miss 
Ethel  Carroll,  president  for  the  past  year 
of  the  section  and  librarian  of  the  Oxnard 
Public  Librai"j'.  Rook  mutilation  was  dis- 
cussed by  Harvej-  J.  Addams,  special 
investigator  of  the  Los  Angeles  Public 
Library.  Decreasing  the  temptation  for 
l)ook  thefts  and  mutilation  was  the  i-emedy 
offered  for  this  perplexing  problem  by  Mr 
Addams.  He  asserted  that  persons  often 
take  books  on  very  slight  pretext  and 
might  not  do  so  if  the  opportunity  did  not 
present  itself.  As  concrete  remedies  for 
this  problem  he  recommended  closer  super- 
vision of  stacks  and  reading  rooms  ;  verifi- 


cation of  applicants  for  cards ;  the  inter- 
ception of  fraudulent  cardholders ;  closer 
scrutiny  of  satchels,  hand  bags,  etc.  He 
gave  several  examples  of  curious  places  in 
which  missing  books  were  found.  One 
book,  reported  lost  for  seven  months,  was 
found  doing  duty  for  a  missing  caster 
under  the  leg  of  an  office  desk.  Mr  Greene 
of  the  Oakland  Library  thought  that  the 
association  should  protest  to  the  school 
authorities  against  the  making  of  scrap 
books  for  the  schools.  He  said  that  chil- 
dren have  been  known  to  cut  pictures  out 
rf  valuable  books,  encyclopedias  and  maga- 
zines for  this  purpose  and  that  the  prac- 
tice tended  to  make  vandals  of  the  chil- 
dren. Miss  Althea  AVarren  of  the  San 
Diego  Public  Library  gave  an  interesting 
talk  on  entertainment  material.  Patrons 
crowd  to  the  library  to  know  how  to  cele- 
brate some  holiday  fittingly  and  the  libra- 
rian is  often  puzzled  to  make  her  material 
go  around.  Miss  Warren  gave  sources  for 
l)lays.  games,  recitations,  etc.  "In  this 
branch  of  library  work,"  she  said,  "it  is 
sometimes  necessary  to  lower  our  stand- 
ards somewhat,  for  when  a  patron  wants 
'The  face  on  the  bar-room  floor,'  that's 
\\hat  he  wants,  not  some  classical  poem." 
]\Iiss  Eleanor  Hague,  an  authority  on  folk- 
lore, presenied  valuable  material  on  folk 
songs,  and  Miss  Maryette  O.  Mackey  of 
the  Los  Angeles  Public  Library  discussed 
the  work  with  foreigners.  In  closing.  Miss 
Mackey  made  a  plea  for  the  laying  aside 
of  an  attitude  of  sui>eriority  when  dealing 
with  foreign  pati'ons  of  libraries,  for  they 
honestly  believe  that  their  nation  and  their 
literature  outranks  or  equals  that  of  any 
other  nation. 

Two  round  tables  were  also  held  on 
^Monday  afternoon,  one  on  school  libraries 
and  the  part  that  they  can  play  in  the 
building  of  Citizenship  and  Americaniza- 
tion was  discussed  by  Dr.  Frederick 
Woellner  of  the  University  of  California, 
Southern  Rx-anch.  Miss  Winifred  F. 
Skinner  of  the  Pasadena  High  School 
Library  presided  at  this  meeting.  Miss 
Helen  E.  Haines  gave  one  of  her  delight- 
ful talks  before  this  group  on  "Interesting 
new  books  for  High  School  libraries." 
Mrs  Nettie  K.  Gravett,  librarian  of  the

U.  8.  Veterans'  Hospital  No.  24,  at  Palo 
Alto,  pres-ided  over  the  Plospital  Libraries 
liouud  Table,  and  the  principal  speaker 
was  Dr.  Josephine  Jackson,  famous  nerve 
specialist  of  Pasadena.  Hospital  libraiy 
work,  iirs  Gravett  reported,  is  a  result 
'.;f  the  war  when  interest  was  stimulated 
in  supplying  hospitals  with  books.  Libra- 
ries are  now  assisting  in  the  work  and  it 
is  spreading  to  private  hospitals  and 
l)romises  to  be  a  very  important  phase  of 
library    work. 

Mouda.v  evening  a  marionette  show  was 
given,  '  ■  S  n  o  w  -  w  h  i  t  e  and  the  seven 
dwarfs,"  by  the  municipal  players  of  the 
Los  Angeles  playground  department.  It 
was  very  well  put  on  and  much  enjoyed. 
This  was  followed  by  an  Italian  carnival 
which  was  a  great  success.  Some  were 
masked  and  some  were  hard  to  recognize 
even  without  masks.  The  dignified  State 
Librarian  was  finally  found  in  the  role  of 
an  Italian  organ  grinder.  He  was  assisted 
in  his  labors  by  a  well-known  bookbindex*. 

Mr  H.  O.  Parkinson  presided  at  the 
I  bird  general  session  on  Tuesday  morning. 
Miss  Helen  E.  Haines  of  the  Los  Angeles 
library  school  read  a  most  interesting 
luiper  on  "Modern  fiction  and  the  public 
library."  "Librarians  seldom  regard  fic- 
lion  with  si-renity,"  .Miss  Haines  said, 
and  many  of  the  librarians  smiled.  She 
told  of  one  very  excited  lady  who  returned 
to  the  library  a  copy  of  Fabre's  "Social 
life  in  the  insect  world"  and  demanded 
that  it  be  withdrawn  from  circulation  be- 
cause it  contained  "One  very  passionate 
chapter"  !  "Selection  and  not  censorship 
is  the  i)roblem  confronting  the  librarian 
and  the  public  library  should  disclaim  cen- 
sorship and  practice  selection"  ^liss 
Haines  continued.  It  was  a  very  sane 
and  practical  paper  on  the  question  that 
is  always  upiiennost  in  every  library. 
I'dlowing  comiuunity  singing,  led  by  Miss 
Wolff,  interesting  book  symposiums  were 
given  by  noted  authorities  on  varied  sub- 
j'cts.  Sydney  B.  Mitchell,  associate  li- 
brarian of  the  University  of  California, 
spoke  on  architecture  applicable  to  Cali- 
fornia. "California  history  and  desciip- 
ti'On"  was  the  subject  of  Laura  C.  Cooley, 
assistant  reference  librarian  of  th(>  Los 
Angeles  I'ublic  Library.  Francis  ]M. 
FultJC,  author  of  the  "Elfin  forest,"  spoke 
on  "California  out-of-doors.'"  Each  of 
these  last  three  speakers  had  short  printed 


lists  of  books  on  their  special  subjects 
which  were  much  appreciated  when  they 
were  distributed  to  the  librarians.  At  the 
m'srning  business  session  the  delegates 
endorsed  a  resolution  favoring  the  adop- 
tion of  a  uniform  system  of  lettering  on 
bound    magtizines. 

Miss  Jasmine  Britton  of  the  city 
school  library  of  Los  Angeles  spoke  on 
the  restoration  of  the  library  of  the 
T'niversity  of  Louvain.  Money  is  much 
needed  to  complete  buildings  to  house  the 
books  already  collected.  Pledges  were  dis- 
tributed which  members  were  asked  to 
fill  out  and  send  in. 

The  general  session  on  Tuesday  after- 
noon was  omitted  because  of  the  fact  that 
Benjamin  F.  Pearson  of  the  Southern 
California  Edison  Company,  who  was  to 
luavt*  spoken,  was  unable  to  be  present 
on  account  of  illness.  The  afternoon 
was  devoted  to  the  round  table  meet- 
ings beginning  at  three  o'clock.  All 
those  who  attended  the  "Children's 
round  tal)le"  considered  themsel\-es 
very  fortunate  to  hear  the  .splendid 
discussions  on  nature  study  material, 
books  for  the  intermediate  grades,  children 
and  poetry,  and  esiwcially  Miss  Frances 
Clarke's  delightful  account  of  her  exjieri- 
ences  in  the  children's  room  of  the  New 
York  Public  Library.  The  other  rountl 
tables  for  the  afternoon  were  the  "Cata- 
loging and  reference  round  table,"  pre- 
sided over  by  E.  Louise  Pec-k  of  the  San 
Diego  Public  Library  ;  and  "Buildings  and 
equipment."  in  charge  of  Miss  Helen  T. 
Kennedy  of  the  Los  Angeles  P  u  b  1  i  c 
Library. 

Tuesday  evening  there  were  many  li- 
brary school  and  group  dinners,  a  jolly 
crowd  that  filled  the  big  dining  room  to 
overflowing.  Miss  Madge  Jenison  gave  an 
after  dinner  address  on  the  "Sunwise 
turn,"  and  after  dinner  the  whole  party 
adjourned  to  the  ballroom  where  Mr  Don- 
ald K.  Dickey  gave  a  natural  history  film, 
■'Game  trails  of  the  North."  He  showed 
us  how  he  took  the  pictures  of  wild 
animals  in  their  native  haunts  and  it  made 
a  thrilling  and  most  interesting  evening. 

On  AVednesday  Ma-  H.  J.  Stonier,  Ex- 
ecutive Secretary,  T"nivei"sity  of  Southern 
California,  talked  on  the  "Literature  of 
a  changing  government."  "America  needs 
less  law  and  more  law  enforcement.  We 
have  reached  the  saturation  point  in  law," 


190 


NEWS   NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES.  [ July,  1924 


Mr  Stonier  said.  "The  superabundance  of 
laws  in  America  today  leads  to  a  feeling 
among  the  so-called  criminal  class  that 
the  law  does  not  mean  what  it  says.  Li- 
brarians have  a  place  in  eliminating  this 
condition  by  aiding  in  satisfying  the  in- 
creasing inquisitiveness  of  American  peo- 
ple in  regard  to  forms  and  functions  of 
government."'  Committee  reports  followed. 
Mr  Sydney  B.  Mitchell  was  elected  as  a 
delegate  from  the  C.  L.  A.  to  the  meeting 
of  the  A.  L.  A.  The  Nominating  Com- 
mittee presented  its  report  and  the  new 
ofEjcei-s  for  the  year  1924-25  unani- 
mously elected  were :  Mr  H.  O.  Parkinson, 
librarian  Stockton  Public  Library,  pres- 
ident ;  Miss  Helen  T.  Kennedj%  assistant 
libi'arian  Los  Angeles  Public  Library,  vice 
president;  Miss  Hazel  G.  Gibson,  Sacra- 
mento County  Library,  secretary-treas- 
urer. Resolutions  were  also  adopted  prais- 
ing the  work  of  Miss  Drake,  the  retiring 
president.  "Wednesday  morning  there 
were  three  round  tables.  "University- 
College  Round  Table,"  presided  over  by 
Mr  J.  E.  Goodwin,  Librarian  of  the  Uni- 
versity of  California,  Southern  Branch. 
A  "I^ending  round  table,"  in  charge  of 
lUanche  I'nterkirc-her  of  the  Los  Angeles 
I'ublic  Library,  which  discussed  the  pur- 
pose the  library  should  serve  to  the  pub- 
lic ;  and  the  obligations  of  the  librarian  to 
the  public.  Miss  Littlejohn  in  her  short 
talk  on  "fatigue  study"  emphasized  the 
importance  of  the  librarian  keeping  physi- 
cally fit  in  order  best  to  meet  these  obliga- 
tions. Miss  Van  "Waters  of  the  Juvenile 
Court  of  Los  Angeles  County  told  vei"y 
effectively  in  what  ways  the  librarian 
can  assist  with  the  work  of  the  Juvenile 
Court.  At  the  "Publicity  round  table" 
Mr  Joeckel  of  the  Bei-keley  Public  Library 
demonstrated  the  use  of  graphs  as  vivid 
means  of  showing  the  development  of  a 
librarj'.  Newspaper  and  other  types  of 
publicity  were  also  discussed. 

The  members  of  the  Association  had 
the  privilege  in  the  afternoon  of  visiting 
the  Henry  E.  Huntington  Library  at  San 
Marino.  Arrangements  were  made  by  the 
Chamber  of  Commerce  for  the  transporta- 
tion of  the  visitors  from  the  hotel  to  the 
San  Marino  estate  of  Mr  Huntington 
where  the  world-famous  library  is  located. 
Dr.  George  "^^'^atson  Cole,  librarian  of  the 
Huntington  LibraiT,  was  host  to  the 
large  group  of  visitors  during  the  after- 


noon. The  Gutenberg  Bible  was  one  of 
the  very  special  treasures  on  view.  After 
leaving  the  Huntington  Library  the  visit- 
ore  had  a  drive  around  Pasadena  and  tea 
was  served  at  the  Spanish  room  of  the 
Yroman  bookstore.  The  trip  was  a  de- 
lightful ending  to  a  very  interesting  meet- 
ing. There  was  a  record  attendance,  about 
480  librarians  and  friends  being  present 
during  the  meeting.  The  thanks  of  the 
members  are  due  the  officers  of  1923^1924, 
Miss  Drake,  Mr  Parkinson,  and  Miss  Gib- 
son,   for  such   as  successful   meeting. 

On  Thursday,  May  1st,  the  County 
Librarians  met  for  a  special  session  on 
county  library  work,  Mr  Ferguson  pre- 
siding. 

The  county  librarians  responded  to  roll 
call  with  a  two-minute  statement  of 
"something  accomplished,  something 
done."  but  as  the  present  writer  is  not  a 
shorthand  reporter  it  is  imiwssible  to 
give  a  full  account  of  all  the  interesting 
things  that  they  are  doing. 

Mrs  Linn  reported  for  the  sign  commit- 
tee that  the  county  library  signs  may 
again  be  obtained.  The  price  is  .$4.7r) 
each  in  lots  of  ten  or  more,  or  .$.").!. ")  in 
smaller  numbers. 

Miss  Provines,  the  treasurer,  reported 
•f'.jT.SiO  in  the  treasury  and  reminded  us 
that  the  convention  fee  of  one  dollar  was 
now  due  and  payable. 

After  luncheon  there  was  a  discussion 
of  several  interesting  library  questions. 
Most  interesting  of  all,  to  judge  from  the 
discussion,  was  the  question  of  a  visiting 
instructor  in  book  mending,  the  general 
opinion  being  that  if  it  were  possible  to 
have  such  an  instructor,  it  would  be 
most  useful. 

Miss  McCardle  read  a  paper  on  "The 
best  new  books  for  the  teachei-s'  library," 
which  she  informed  us  was  written  by 
Anne  Bell  Bailey  of  her  staff.  She  also 
agreed  to  send  to  any  librarian  a  copy  of 
the  list  of  books  recommended  which  will 
be  very  useful  to  all  of  us. 

Miss  JNIargaret  W.  Smith  of  the  Santa 
Clara  County  Library  told  of  "A  new 
assistant's  experience  with  school  work," 
telling  of  her  work  with  the  schools  this 
past  year. 

^Nliss  Provines  told  in  a  delightful  way 
of  her  work  with  the  State  Prison.

Mrs  Babcock  read  the  report  of  the 
resohitious  committee  on  the  resignation 
of  Miss'  Celia  Gleason  as  county  librarian 
of  Los  Angeles  County,  as  follows : 

"We,  the  County  Librarians  of  Califor- 
nia in  convention  assembled,  desire  to 
express  to  Miss  Celia  Gleason  our  profound 
appreciation  of  her  years  of  faithful  and 
efficient  service  as  Librarian  of  the  Los 
Angeles  County  Free  Library,  our  un- 
shaken and  unsliakable  confidence  in  her 
integrity,  lienor,  and  ability  as  a  woman, 
as  an  executive,  and  as  a  public  official. 

"We  desire  to  assure  her  of  our  love, 
our  loyalty,  and  our  profound  regret  and 
sorrow  over  her  resignation  as  Librarian 
of  the  Los  Angeles  County  Free  Librarj', 
whicli  under  her  skillful  and  efficient  man- 
agement has  developed  into  tlie  largest 
and  most  effective  institution  of  its  kind, 
not  only  in  California,  but  in  the  United 
States,  and  in  which  we,  as  County  Li- 
brarians, feel  a  deep  professional  pride 
and  appreciation,  because  of  its  remarka- 


ble    development    and     snlendid    achieve- 
ment." 

The  county  librarians  and  their  assist- 
ants had  dinner  together  on  Wednesday 
night,  followed  by  Miss  Hadden's  Mon- 
terey County  Library  film,  a  moving  pic- 
ture taken  by  Miss  Hadden's  brother  of  a 
trip  over  Monterey  County,  visiting 
branches  and  schools.  It  made  some  of 
the  librarians  who  do  not  ride  horseback 
feel  that  Miss  Hadden  has  some  special 
problems  in  her  county. 

There  is  one  really  dreadful  thing 
about  a  County  Library  meeting  and  that 
is  the  saying  good-bye  for  another  year, 
but  it  had  to  be  done  and  the  fifteenth 
annual  California  County  Librarians'  con- 
vention was  over. 


HOW    THE    CALIFORNIA    STATE     LIBRARY    CAN     BE    OF    ASSISTANCE 
TO    LOCAL   LAW    LIBRARIES,   COURTS  AND  ATTORNEYS. 

By  Herbert  Y.  Clayton,  Law  and  Legislative  Reference  Librarian, 
California    State    Library. 


The  local  law  libraries  of  California — 
county,  bar  association,  and  private  law 
Iil>raries — vary  greatly  in  the  extent  and 
variety  of  their  contents,  from  those  con- 
taining possibly  nothing  but  a  fairly  re- 
cent edition  of  our  codes,  and  maybe  also 
one  or  more  of  our  recent  statutes,  up  to 
the  county  law  library  containing  some 
fifty  thousand  or  more  volumes. 

As  is  said  by  Frederick  C.  Hicks,  li- 
brarian of  the  Columbia  University  Law 
Library,  in  his  recent  book  entitled 
"Materials  and  Methods  of  Legal  Re- 
search," on  pages  283  and  284  : 

"Few  lawyer's  are  able  to  possess  all  of 
the  law  books  that  they  would  like  to 
have.  The  young  lawyer  especially  must 
limit  himself  to  a  selection  of  books. 
Often  he  can  not  own  what  he  considers 
to  be  the  desirable  minimum ;  such  as  the 
reports  of  the  highest  court  of  his  state, 
the  latest  revision  of  laws,  the  codes,  local 
practice  books,  and  a  few  treatises.  Many 
can  add  to  the  above  only  a  set  of  anno- 
tated reports  covering  a  wide  I'ange  of 
cases  and  containing  useful  comments  on 
other  cases,  or  the  National  Reporter  cov- 
ering their  own  and  adjoining  states. 
Others  possess  also  a  comprehensive  di- 
gest, or  an  alphabetically  arranged  text ; 
such  as  Ruling  Case  Law,  or  Corpus 
Juris.    But   whatever  the  scope   of  one's 


personal  collection,  the  time  usually  comes 
when  it  will  not  suffice.  The  needs  of 
legal  research  are  often  very  extensive,  so 
that  recoui"se  must  be  had  to  large  law 
libraries." 

What  ]Mr  Hicks  says  iu  regard  to  pri- 
vate law  libraries  is  also  just  as  true  of 
the  smaller  county  law  libraries,  and  even 
the  largest  of  them  are  at  times  unable 
to  supply  all  of  the  books  and  other 
material  that  their  patrons  need.  When 
liiis  situation  arises,  why  shouldn't  they 
call  upon  other  law  libraries  in  their  vicin- 
ity for  the  desired  publications,  and  if 
they  are  not  available  locally,  Avhy  not 
then  check  the  matter  up  to  the  State 
Library?  That  is  in  the  main  the  system 
now  followed  in  the  county  free  libraries; 
and  should  not  the  local  law  libraries, 
upon  which  the  average  well  trained  judge 
and  lawyer  place  so  much  reliance  for 
material  upon  which  to  base  their  opinions 
or  arguments,  follow  a  somewhat  similar 
procwlure?  The  local  law  library  can  not 
ordinarily  afford  to  own  all  of  the  law 
books  that  its  patrons  need,  even  if  it 
were  possible  for  it  to  procure  them. 
Many  law  books  are  out  of  print,  or  rare, 
and  costly  and  their  purchase  even  when 
available  is  not  advisable  for  any  but  the 
larger  law  libraries.  The  books  that 
should  be  purchased  by   the  attorney,  or 


192 


NEWS   NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES. 


[July,  1924 


the  local  law  library,  are  those  that  he, 
or  its  patrons,  need  most ;  and  those 
that  he  or  it  can  not  afford  to  own  should 
be  borrowed  from  other  law  libraries  as 
the  need  for  them  arises. 

The  county  law  library  should  know 
what  books  are  possessed  by  the  other 
law  libraries  of  that  particular  county. 
This  can  be  accomplished  by  means  of  a 
union  card  catalog-  maintained  in  the 
county  law  library.  This  catalog  should 
contain  at  least  one  card  for  each  law 
book  (not  each  coi>y  of  ^ai  book)  to  be 
found  in  th^  various  law  libraries  in  the 
county.  Upon  this  card  (either  upon  its 
face  or  back,  or  upon  a  supplemental 
card)  should  be  stamped  or  written  the 
names  of  tlie  libraries  containing  that  par- 
ticular book  (or  edition  thereof).  The 
patrons  of  all  of  the  law  libraries  in  the 
county  would  soon  come  to  realize  the 
extreme  value  of  the  union  catalog  and 
would  insist  on  its  always  being  kept  right 
up  to  date.  The  woi'k  of  preparing  and 
maintaining  such  a  catalog  Avould  be  com- 
paratively light,  and  even  in  the  more 
heavily  populated  counties  should  not 
prove  burdensome. 

Besides  the  resources  of  all  the  law 
libraries  in  the  county,  there  should  be 
availalile  to  the  courts  and  •  attorneys 
thereof,  through  the  county  law  library, 
the  resources  of  the  county  free  library 
and  also  of  the  various  independent  cit.y 
libraries  of  the  county.  It  is  frequently 
necessary  for  an  attorney  to  use  scientific 
treatis'es  in  the  preparation  and  argu- 
ment of  his  cases,  political  and  economic 
works  and  general  literature  in  the  prep- 
aration of  addresses  for  special  occasions, 
and  a  wide  variety  of  material  with  wlaich 
to  keep  abreast  of  the  times.  Wliy  should 
he  not  obtain  these  through  the  one  li- 
brary in  the  county  with  which  he  has 
almost  daily  contact?  Such  a  system  of 
ihterlibrary  book  loans  within  the  coun- 
ties themselves  is  certainly  both  feasible 
and  practicable.  Even  with  such  an 
arrangement  there  would  frequently  be 
times  when  it  would  be  advisable  to  call 
upon  the  State  Library  for  assistance. 

In  the  law  department  of  the  California 
State  Library  are  to  be  found  a  practi- 
cally complete  collection  of  the  reports  of 
the  decisions  of  the  courts',  digests  of  deci- 
sions, the  codes,  statutes,  and  session  laws, 
and  the  legal  periodicals,  not  only  of  this 


country  but  of  all  the  countries  of  which 
English  is  the  official  language.  General 
digests  and  legal  encyclopedias  of  the 
United  States  and  of  England  are  also 
available.  A  large  number  of  the  text- 
books published  in  this  country,  and  a 
good  selection  from  those  pu^blished  in 
Canada  and  England  are  there  also.  Most 
of  the  printed  proceedings  of  the  bar  asso- 
ciation of  the  various  states  are  on  its 
shelves,  as  is  also  a  collection  of  legal 
miscellany  covering  trial  tactics,  legal 
history,  legal  essays,  etc.  It  also  has  a 
very  good  collection  of  trials.  Last,  but 
not  least  in  value  to  courts  and  attorneys, 
it  has  a  bound  collection  of  the  printed 
records  and  briefs  filed  in  the  California 
Supreme  Court  and  in  the  California  Dis- 
trict Courts  of  Appeal  dating  back  to  the 
early  clays  of  those  courts  and  coming 
right  down  to  the  last  published  volumes 
of  the  reports  of  decisions  thereof.  There 
are  some  sixty  thousand  books  all  told  in 
the  law  department  of  the  California 
State  Library. 

The  general  reference  department  of 
that  librai*y  with  its  extensive  resources 
in  all  fields  of  literature,  useful  arts, 
sciences,  engineering,  history,  etc.,  is  a 
veritable  mine  of  valuable  information  on 
almost  any  subject  that  is  liable  to  engage 
tlie  attention  of  any  of  our  law  library 
patrons.  The  constitutional  histories, 
biographies  and  speeches  of  eminent 
.iudges,  lawyers  and  statesTaen  of  all  ages, 
books  on  handwriting,  forgery,  inks, 
poisons,  chemistry,  medicine,  debating,  and 
surveying  are  all  books  that  lawyers  fre- 
quently need  to  consult,  and  are  there 
waiting  to  serve  them. 

Tlie  documents  department,  as  is  re- 
peatedly stated  in  News  Notes  of  Cali- 
fornia Libraries,  "aims  to  collect,  arrange 
and  make  available  government  publica- 
tions, federal,  state,  city  and  foreign." 
Of  its  collection  those  probably  of  most 
interest  to  judges  and  lawyers  are :  Inter- 
state commerce  commission  reports,  Treas- 
ur,v  decisions.  Public  land  decisions.  Court 
of  claims  reports.  Patent  decisions,  Deci- 
sions of  the  Comptroller  of  the  Treasury. 
Treasury  decisions  under  internal  revenue 
laws  of  the  U.  S.,  Opinions  of  the  Attor- 
neys General  of  the  LT.  S.,  Opinions  of  the 
.Judge  Advocates  General  of  the  Army, 
reports  of  the  various  oflicers,  boards, 
commissions,    departments,    etc.,    of    this

statr,  of  tha  several  states  in  the  Union 
and  of  the  United  States  government,  the 
Congressional  Record,  and  the  legislative 
bills  and  resolutions  of  our  own  state 
Ic.aislature  and  of  Congress. 

The  California  department,  to  quote 
again  from  Netcs  Notes  of  Galifornm 
Libraries,  "aims  to  have  a  thoroughly 
good  collection  of  books  on  the  history  and 
description,  resources  and  industries  of  the 
slate,  as  well  as  the  works  of  CaJifomia 
authors  in  all  departments  of  literature. 
These  are  made  acces'sible  by  means  of  a 
card  catalog.  Full  names  and  biographical 
sketches  of  California  authors,  artists, 
musicians,  pioneers  and  early  settlers  are 
being  secured,  together  with  their  photo- 
graphs. The  collection  of  bound  periodi- 
cals is  qnitv^  large.  The  department  also 
contains  aliout  7000  bound  volumes  of 
newspapers,  a  file  of  which  is  being  in- 
dexed with  reference  to  the  histoid  of  the 
state."  The  newspapers  are  to  the  lawyer 
undoubtedly  the  most  valuable  material  in 
the  department.  They  may  not  be  with- 
drawn from  the  library,  l)ut  cameragraph 
copies  of  legal  notices  and  other  matter 
therein  will  he  furnished  by  the  library 
at  cost. 

The  Books  for  tlie  Blind  dei)artmenl 
contains  some  fifteen  thousand  books  em- 
bossed in  the  various  types  in  common  use 
among  blind  readei-s.  While  none  of  the 
books  is  of  a  legal  nature  still  many  of 
them  would  undoubtedly  be  a  welcome 
addition  to  the  reading  of  the  attorneys 
of  this  state  wlio  are  afflicted  with 
blindness. 

The  great  hulk  of  the  material  in  the 
State  Library  is  subject  to  loan  at  any 
time.  The  material  not  Loaned  consists  of 
encyclopedias,  digests,  dictionaries,  in- 
dexes to  periodicals,  and  other  reference 
material,  much  of  which  will  be  found  in 
almost  any  library.  It  also  includes  news- 
papers, rare  books,  some  government  pub- 
lications, and  some  unbound  material. 
However,  the  court  reports,  statutes, 
codes,  session  laws,  legal  textbooks, 
periodicals,  bound  court  records,  and  legal 
miscellany,  belonging  to  the  law  depart- 
ment, and  most  of  the  material  in  the 
other  depai'tments  of  the  library  that  law- 
yers would  be  liable  to  have  occasion  to 
use,  are  available  for  circulation. 

Material  to  be  used  away  from  Sacra- 
mento   should    be    requested    through    the 


county  free  library  in  counties  having  such 
a  library,  otherwise  through  the  nearest 
city  library.  The  request  may  be  filed 
with  the  county  law  library,  or  with  the 
local  city  library,  which  will  foi-ward  it 
to  the  county  free  library.  In  cas'e  it  has 
the  requested  material  on  its  shelves,  or 
at  one  of  its  branches  not  too  distantly 
removed,  the  request  will  if  possible  be 
filled  therefrom ;  otherwise  the  request 
will  be  forwarded  to  the  State  Library. 
The  local  library  will  forward  the  request 
direct  to  the  State  Library  in  case  there 
is  no  county  free  library  in  that  county. 
In  forwarding  the  request  to  the  State 
Library  the  county  free  library  may  desig- 
nate that  the  material  is  to  be  sent  direct 
to  the  library  originally  requesting  it,  the 
county  fi-ee  library  in  any  case  guarantee- 
ing the  return  of  the  material.  Transpor- 
tation on  books  is  paid  by  the  borrowing- 
library.  Books  are  Loaned  for  a  period 
of  five  weeks,  subject  to  renewal  for  an 
additional  period  of  two  weeks,  with  the 
understanding,  however,  that  they  may  be 
recalled  by  the  State  Library  in  case  they 
are  needed  by  a  state  officer,  or  if  in  the 
opinion  of  the  state  librarian  a  recall  is 
fair  and  expedient.  State  officers  (judges 
of  .superior  courts  included)  are  entitled 
to  borrow  books  direct  from  the  State  Li- 
brary, and  attorneys  are  accorded  the 
same  privilege  upon  the  presentation  of  a 
request  signed  l)y  a  supreme,  appellate 
or  superior  judge,  or  other  state  oflSicer. 

The  State  Library  maintains  a  free 
employment  bureau  that  helps  to  bring  in 
touch  with  each  other  librarians  and  li- 
brary assistants  desiring  employment  or  a 
change  of  location  and  libraries  having 
vacancies  on  their  staffs  to  fill.  This 
service  is  for  law  librarians  and  law 
libi'aries  and  other  special  libraries  as  well 
as  for  general  libraries  and  those  trained 
for  that  line  of  library  work.  It  is  a 
service  that  should  be  taken  advantage  of 
by  all  kinds  of  libi'aries  and  librarians. 

The  State  Library  will  at  any  time  be 
pleased  to  give  advice  to  other  law  libra- 
ries of  the  state  regarding  the  purchase 
of  additional  books.  Libraries  desiring 
to  avail  themselves  of  this  service  should 
indicate  in  a  general  way  just  what  their 
present  collection  consists  of,  what  books 
they  have  calls  for  and  do  not  have,  and 
an  estimate  of  the  amount  of  money  that 
they    will    haA'e    available    for    additions.

NEWS   NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES. 


[  Juljr,  1924 


Funds  should  ordinarily  be  invested:  (1) 
in  boolis  that  will  be  of  permanent  value ; 
(2)  in  books  of  reference  that  may  in  the 
course  of  a  fev^r  years  become  more  or 
less  out  of  date  but  that  will  in  the  mean- 
time be  used  sufficiently  to  justify  their 
purchase,  and  (3)  in  standard  textbooks. 
Most  textbooks,  codes  and  statutes  of 
other  states  and  countries,  foreign  reports, 
and  American  side  reports  (reports  other 
than  those  containing  the  decisions  of  the 
courts  of  last  resort  of  the  various  states) 
can  be  borrowed  from  the  State  Library 
whenever  needed,  and  their  purchase  by 
the  smaller  library  is  ordinarily  a  waste 
of  funds. 

The  State  Library  has  citators  for  the 
United  States  reports.  National  Reporter 
System,  and  most  of  the  state  reports, 
and  Rose's  Notes  on  United  States  Re- 
ports and  similar  sets  covering  the  reports 
of  some  of  the  states.  Some  of  these  pub- 
lications include  constitutional  and  statu- 
tory citations;  and  the  library  also  has 
exten.sively  annotated  sets  of  codes  and 
compiled   statutes  of  other  states. 

If  anyone  wants  to  know  where  a  con- 
stitutional or  statutory  provision  has  been 
cited  or  construed,  or  a  case  has  been 
cited,  affiirmed,  reversed,  modified,  or  dis- 
tinguished, he  may  write  to  the  State  Li- 
brary, and  the  desired  information  will  be 
immediately  forwarded  to  him. 

The  California  Law  Review  should  be 
in  every  law  library  in  the  state  that  con- 
tains more  than  five  hundred  volumes. 
Other  legal  periodicals  may  be  borrowed 
from  the  State  Library  or  consulted  at  it 
or  at  one  of  the  other  large  law  libraries. 

Every  law  library  that  contains  more 
than  one  thousand  volumes  should  own 
a  set  of  the  indexes  to  legal  periodicals, 
the  current  volumes  of  which  are  pub- 
lished by  the  American  Association  of 
Law  Libraries.  They  are  a  set  of  keys 
that  will  unlock  for  the  lawyer  an  ex- 
tremely valuable  mine  of  information,  and 
that  will  help  him  to  keep  abreast  of  the 
current  developments  of  the  law.  These 
indexes  ai"e  issued  quarterly  and  then 
cumulated  each  year  into  annual  volumes. 
They  index  practically  all  of  the  leading 
legal  periodicals  of  the  United  States  and 
of  the  British  Empire,  as  well  as  the  pro- 
ceedings of  the  various  bar  associations  of 
the  United  States  and  Canada.   Some  ai'ti- 


cles  of  a  semilegal  nature  published  in 
other  periodicals  are  also  covered. 

If  a  library  does  not  contain  a  set  of 
these  indexes  and' it  wishes  to  know  what 
has  been  published  in  the  legal  periodicals 
along  any  particular  line,  a  request  may 
be  sent  to  the  State  Library  the  same  as 
for  a  book,  the  request  stowing  the 
specific  subject  to  be  looked  up,  the  period 
of  time  to  be  covered,  whether  merely  a 
list  of  the  articles  published  is  desired  or 
a  list  and  one  or  more  of  the  leading 
articles. 

Every  law  library  of  more  than  one 
thousand  volumes  should  contain  at  least 
one  legal  directory  of  comparatively  re- 
cent publication.  The  two  leading  ones 
(Hubbell's  and  Martindale's)  contain  not 
only  lists  of  attorneys  practicing  in  the 
various  cities  of  this  and  other  states  and 
the  Canadian  provinces,  but  also  excellent 
summaries  of  the  laws  of  those  states  and 
provinces,  of  the  outlying  possessions  of 
the  United  States,  and  of  Mexico  and  a 
few  other  'foreign  jurisdictions.  The  State 
Library  will  be  pleased  to  furnish  any  of 
the  information  contained  in  these  publi- 
cations, except  that  relating  to  the  stand- 
ing of  the  various  attorneys  listed  therein 
— which  information  the  library  agrees 
with  the  publishers  not  to  circulate. 

The  State  Library  also  maintains  in 
connection  with  its  law  department  a 
legislative  reference  service  whose  pur- 
pose is  to  supply  members  of  the  legisla- 
ture with  information  relative  to  past, 
current,  and  prospective  legislation.  While 
this  service  is  primarily  for  the  members 
of  the  legislature  the  law  libraries  and 
attorneys  of  the  state  are  also  urged  to 
make  use  of  it. 

The  State  Library  maintains  a  "Union 
Catalog"  in  which  are  to  be  found  cards, 
alphabetically  arranged,  covering  practi- 
cally all  of  the  books  to  be  found  in  the 
county  free  libraries  of  the  state,  in  some 
of  the  city  libraries,  and  many  in  the  gen- 
eral librai'ies  of  the  University  of  Cali- 
fornia, Leland  Stanford  University,  and 
the  University  of  Southern  California. 
When  the  State  Library  receives  a  request 
for  a  book  that  it  does  not  have  in  its 
own  collection  this  Union  Catalog  is  con- 
sulted and  the  library  or  individual  re- 
questing the  book  is  notified  as  to  where 
it  may  be  found.  So  far  it  contains  but 
few  cards  for  law  books  as  only  a  conj-

STATE    AND    LOCAI.    LAW    LIBRARIES.

Ijaratively  few  law  books  are  to  be  found 
iu  the  general  libraries  of  the  state,  and 
to  date  only  a  very  few  of  the  law  li- 
braries of  the  state  have  sent  in  cards 
covering  their  collections. 

It  is  not  necessary  that  one  have  a 
highly  developed  imaginative  faculty  in 
order  to  be  able  to  visualize  the  general 
benefit  to  the  law  libraries  of  the  state 
of  having  in  one  place  a  catalog  covering 
all  of  the  law  books  to  be  found  in  all 
of  the  public  libraries  of  the  state.  The 
larger  law  libraries  contain  many  law 
books  the  use  of  which  is  infrequent  and 
the  cost  of  which  is  prohibitive  to  the 
smaller  libraries.  These  boojfs  would  be 
just  as  valuable  to  the  libraries  that  own 
them,  and  of  more  value  to  the  courts  and 
the  lawyers  of  the  state  in  general,  if 
they  were  all  listed  in  the  Union  Catalog 
at  the  State  Library,  from  which  they 
could  be  readily  located  for  anyone  in 
any  part  of  the  state. 

A  short  time  ago  the  State  Library 
received  a  request  for  the  laws  of  the 
Republic  of  Honduras  relating  to  aliens 
and  their  property.  The  library  did  not 
l)ossess  the  desired  book  or  books  and  the 
Fnion  Catalog  contained  no  cards  for 
Honduras  statutes  or  codes.  It  imme- 
diately wrote  to  four  of  the  larger  law 
libraries  of  the  state  to  ascertain  if  they 
])ossessed  a  book  or  books  giving  the  de- 
sired information,  but  by  the  time  that  it 
had  received  a  favorable  response  from 
one  of  them  the  party  for  whom  the  in- 
formation was  desired  had  referred  the 
matter  to  an  attorney  in  a  large  eastern 
city.  If  cards  for  the  desired  books  had 
been  in  the  Union  Catalog  one  California 
attorney  would  have  earned  a  fee  that,  as 
it  was,  went  to  an  eastern  attorney. 

The  main  things  that  the  public  law 
libraries  of  the  state  lack  at  the  present 
time  are:  (1)  a  vision  of  a  more  exten- 
sive as  well  as'  a  more  intensive  service 
in  their  own  communities,  and  (2)  a 
spirit  of  cooperation  that  will  link  them 
up  with  the  other  public — general  as  well 
as  law — libraries  of  the  state.  They 
buy  books  and  hoard  them  up,  apparently 
for  no  other  puii)Ose  than  their  use  right 
in  the  local  library  itself.  Most  of  the 
county  law  libraries,  however,  do  permit 
attorneys  to  withdraw  books  for  use  be- 
fore courts  in  session  in  the  court  house, 


but  at  least  one  such  librarj'  is  reported 
as  charging  a  fee  for  the  privilege.  Most 
of  them  not  only  will  not  loan  books  to 
other  libraries  but  they  seem  to  consider 
it  to  be  entirely  beyond  their  sphere  to 
supplement  their  own  collections  with 
books    borrowed   from    other  libraries. 

Why  should  not  a  county  law  library 
freely  loan  its  books  to  any  and  all  of  the 
judges,  lawyers,  law  students,  and  county 
officials  and  enuijloyees  of  the  countj', 
whether  located  at  the  county  seat  or 
elsewhere?  The  books  therein  are  public 
property  and  undoubtedly  the  general  pub- 
lic would  be  better  served  by  the  above 
mentioned  classes  were  they  allowed  a 
wide  latitude  in  the  use  of  such  books. 
Those  people  have  ordinarily  to  be  at 
their  own  places  of  business  during  li- 
brary hours  and  can  frequently  make 
better  use  of  the  books  away  from  the 
library  than  they  can  at  it.  W(ho  is 
there  in  the  state  today  among  the 
patrons  of  the  county  free  libraries  who 
would  advocate  that  those  libraries  should 
discontinue  the  loaning  of  books?  As  a 
nratter  of  fact,  why  should  not  the  books 
in  the  county  law  libraries  circulate  just 
as  freely  as'  the  books  in  the  county  free 
libraries?  Are  the  books  in  the  county 
law  libraries  any  the  less  public  property 
than  the  books  in  the  county  free  libra- 
ries? 

If  a  young  man  or  a  young  wom'an  in 
a  remote  part  of  a  county  desires  to  study 
law,  why  should  not  he  or  she  be  allowed 
to  borrow  the  necessary  books  through  the 
local  branch  of  the  county  free  library? 
We  have  no  law  prohibiting  county  law 
libraries  from  loaning  their  books  through 
the  county  free  libi'aries  and  their 
branches.  Would  it  not  be  better  for  the 
books  to  be  worn  out  than  for  them  to 
stand  idle  on  the  shelves  of  the  libraries 
week  after  week  and  month  after  month? 

Undoubtedly  the  librarians  and  library 
boai'ds  that  are  unwilling  to  cooperate  with 
other  libraries  do  not  realize  the  value  of 
cooperation.  This  is  an  age  of  coopera- 
tion and  nowhere  is  it  more  extensively 
practiced  on  a  large  scale  than  in  this 
state.  We  hear  it  discus&ed  on  every 
hand.  The  county  free  library  system  of 
the  state  is  a  cooperative  scheme,  and 
the  county  free  libraries  hare  certainly 
prospered.  Why  should  not  the  county 
law  libraries  of  the  state  fall  into  line  and

NEWS    NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES. 


[July,  1924 


render  a  service  that  will  be  comparable 
to  that  I'endered  by  their  sister  libraries  V 

In  the  county  free  library  law  there  is 
a  section  making  possible  a  close  connec- 
tion between  the  county  law  library  and 
the  county  fi'ee  library.  It  provides  that 
the  board  of  supervisors  may  enter  into 
a  contract  or  agreement  with  the  board  of 
law  library  trustees,  whereby  the  law  li- 
brary may  be  conducted  by  the  county 
librarian  and  her  staff  for  a  compensation 
to  be  named  therein.  Such  an  arrange- 
ment assures  the  county  law  library  of 
expert  library  service.  Some  of  the  coun- 
ties are  now  working  under  this  plan, 
Fresno  and  Kern  counties  being  striking 
examples  of  the  practical  utility  thereof. 

ilodern  appliances  and  modern  methods 
should  be  installed  in  the  public  law 
libraries  of  th«  state  just  as  they  have 
been  in  the  majority  of  the  other  public 
libraries  thereof.  They  are  certainlj 
Ijroving  their  value  in  the  libraries  that 
have  adopted  them. 

Every  law  library  of  any  size  should 
have  a  good  card  catalog  covering  all  of 
the  books  in  its  collection  ;  and  the  books 
should  lie  cataloged  according  to  approved 
library  methods.  The  writer  recommends 
that  textbooks,  casebooks,  and  series  of 
rep'Orts  on  special  subjects  be  classified 
according  to  the  Dewey  decimal  classifica- 
tion scheme.  This  was  done  in  the  Kern 
County  Law  Library  when  Mrs  Julia  G. 
Babcock,  librarian  of  the  Kern  C'Ounty 
Free  Library,  took  it  under  her  supervi- 
sion ;  and  a  year's  experience  in  that  li- 
brary converted  the  writer  from  an  advo- 
cate of  the  author  arrangement  of  text- 
books and  legal  miscellany  to  that  of  an 
advocate  of  the  arrangement  thereof 
according  to  the  decimal  classification. 
While  that  classification  is  not  as  satis- 
factory for  law  books  as  it  might  be,  yet 
his  experience  is  that  it  is  a  big  improve- 
ment over  the  commonly  accepted  author 
arrangement. 

In  regard  to  the  subject  headings  to  be 
used  in  your  card  catalog  the  writer  sug- 
gests that  you  procure  from  the  Library 
of  Congress  its  Tentative  Headings  and 
Cr0iss-R?feren'ces  for  a  Subject  Cata- 
logue of  American  and  English  Law,  and 
that  it  be  your  guide.  You  will  most 
likely  find  it  necessary  to  add  subject 
headings  and  cross-references  from  time 
to  time,  but  do  not  substitute  other  head- 


ings for  those  used  therein  unless  you 
are  firmly  convinced  that  it  will  help  to 
make  your  catalog  more  usable.  Always 
bear  in  mind  that  a  subject  heading  suit- 
able for  use  in  general  catalogs  may  when 
used  in  a  law  catalog,  on  account  of  a 
difference  between  the  popular  and  the 
egal  meaning  thereof,  apply  to  an  entirely 
different  •ov  more  limited  class  of  books. 
On  L.  C.  cards  you  will  find  that  the 
subject  headings  to  be  used  in  law  cata- 
logs are  enclosed  by  brackets.  A  law 
dictionary  is  also  one  of  the  necessary 
tools    of   a   cataloger   of   law   books. 

Every  public  law  library  should  also 
have  in  operation  a  good  modern  system 
of  charging  books  to  borrowers,  and  of 
notifying  borrowers  when  books  are  over- 
due. 

It  pays  to  advertise  in  a  law  library  as 
well  as  elsewhere.  New  books  should  be 
displayed  in  a  conspicuous  place  in  the 
library  for  a  few  weeks.  It  would  be  well 
to  post  above  or  near  them  a  label  calling 
particular  attention  to  the  fact  that  they 
are  new  books.  One  or  more  bulletin 
boards  should  also  occupy  conspicuous 
places  in  the  liljrary.  One  of  them  might 
well  bear  the  heading:  Books  Recently 
Ordered  ov  Received.  The  other  might  lie 
headed  :  Books  That  Will  Be  Borrowed 
From  State  Library  Upou  Request.  Be- 
low the  respective  headings  can  be  dis- 
played publishers"  circulars  regarding  new 
or  forthcoming  books  that  may  be  of 
interest  to  patrons  of  the  library. 

Do  not  be  afraid  to  stimulate  a  desire 
for  publications  that  your  library  does 
not  possess  and  has  not  the  money  to 
purchase — the  books  in  your  State  Li- 
brary are  at  your  service.  Also  please 
feel  perfectly  free  to  check  up  to  the 
State  Library  at  any  time  any  and  all  of 
your    vexatious    library    problems. 

As  law  librarians,  do  not  neglect,  to 
read  the  current  literature  relating  to 
library  work  in  genei'al  as  well  as  that 
devoted  specifically  to  law  libraries  and 
other  special  libraries.  Library  problems 
are  pretty  much  the  same  in  law  libraries 
and  in  other  special  libraries  as  they  are 
in  general  libraries ;  and  methods  and 
practices  successfully  applied  in  one  li- 
brary can  ordinarily  be  readily  adapted  so 
as  to  accomplish  the  same  end  in  almost 
any  other  library.  You  can  test  this  out 
for  yourself  by  borrowing  from  the  State

Library,  and  reading',  any  i>iii'  ui"  more  of 
a  uuinlnT  of  t-urrout  books  aud  iiamphlet.s 
on  library  economy.  In  addition  you 
should  by  all  meau.s  own.  study,  and  use 
a  copy  of  Hicks'  Materials  and  ^lethods 
of  Tjegal  Research.  It  treats  of  law  li- 
braries, and  of  law  books  and  their  use, 
and  contains  an  excellent  bibliographical 
nTanual.  It  is  a  guide  that  law  librarians 
have  long  needed. 

The  librarians  of  the  county  free  li- 
braries of  the  state  meet  in  convention 
each  year,  usually  at  the  same  place  as. 
and  immediately  preceding  or  following 
the  sessions  of,  the  California  Library 
Association.  There  they  discuss  their 
work  and  learn  to  know  each  other  better. 
A\1!iy  would  it  not  be  a  fine  thing  for  the 
law  librarians  of  the  state  to  hold  a  con- 
vention each  year  at  the  same  place  and 
time  as  the  convention  'of  the  librarians 
III"  the  county  free  libraries?  There  is  a 
iinlional  organization  of  law  librarians 
known  as  the  American  Association  of 
Law  Libraries.  It  holds  its  annual  con- 
\-entions  at  the  same  time  and  place  as 
the  American  Library  Association.  ]Many 
of  the  leading  law  librarians  of  the  coun- 
try attend  these  sessions.  It  is  due  to  its 
efforts  and  encouragement  that  the  in- 
dexes to  legal  periodicals  covering  the 
period  of  from  1S98  to  date  have  been 
iniblished.  It  was  also  responsible  for 
the  recent  issuance  of  a  check  list  of  the 
bar  a.ssociation  proceedings  of  the  L^nited 
States  and  Canada.  The  problems  dis- 
cussed at  its  meetings  are  those  of  the 
smaller  law  libraries  as  well  as  the  lai'ger. 
Its  proceedings,  including  the  papers  read 
at  its  various  sessions,  have  been  pub- 
lished in  the  Law  Library  .Tournal  which 
is  issued  as  a  supplement  to  the  numbers 
of  the  Index  to  Legal  Periodicals,  and 
Mhich  is  also  now  being  issued  separately. 
A   perusal  of  its  pages  will  be  a  help  to 


.uiy  law  iibrarian  in  llic  way  of  inspira- 
tion aud  new  ideas  of  value  in  his  daily 
work.  A  state  association  of  law  libra- 
rians would  necessarily  be  more  limited  in 
its  sphere  of  action,  but  the  law  libra- 
rians of  this  state  certainly  have  prob- 
lems enough  confronting  them  to  devote 
two  days  each  year  to  their  discussion  in 
a  convention  where  there  would  be  a  free 
interchange  of  ideas  and  plans.  Not  only 
that,  but  they  would  become  acquainted 
with  each  other,  and  cooperation  would 
follow  just  as  naturally  as  night  follows 
day. 

A  library  organizer  from  the  State  Li- 
brary goes  out  over  the  state  to  assist  in 
the  organization  of  new  county  free  li- 
braries, and  to  help  all  of  them  to  do 
better  and  more  effective  work.  She 
discusses  their  problems  with  them,  tells 
them  what  other  libraries  are  doing  and 
how  they  are  doing  it,  and  helps  them 
in  any  and  eveiy  way  that  slie  can. 
When  advisable  she  talks  to  the  memljers 
of  their  boards,  to  clubs,  to  societies,  and 
to  others  that  are  or  may  be  interested 
in  the  work  that  the  county  library  is 
doing  or  should  be  doing  in  their  com- 
munities. At  the  presient  time  there  is 
not  sufficient  demand  to  warrant  a  similar 
service  to  county  law  libraries.  But  if 
the  time  should  come  when  such  a  work 
could  profitably  be  taken  up,  the  State 
Library  will  make  every  effort  to  provide 
such  service.  Whatever  we  do  to  build 
up  our  local  law  libraries  and  cause  them 
to  render  better  service  to  the  courts  and 
attorneys  of  the  state  will  be  a  helji 
toward  the  better  and  more  efficient  ad- 
ministration of  justice  therein.  May  the 
day  speedily  come  when  all  of  the  law 
liliraries  of  the  state  will  be  working  har- 
moniously together  on  the  problems  that 
confront   them.

The  School  Dei>artment  has  had  a 
busy  quarter  with  the  closing  of  the  most 
of  the  schools  and  the  opening  of  those 
in  the  mountains.  It  has  been  necessary, 
on  account  of  lack  of  room  at  the  main 
library,  to  leave  mojt  of  the  books  at  the 
school-house  through  the  summer.  The 
books  have  been  checked  up  and  this  has 
taken  a  great  deal  of  time. 

There  has  been  excellent  co-operation 
from  the  teachers  and  most  of  the  school 
libraries  were  in  good  condition. 

The  new  district  of  Pinedale  has  joined 
the  library.  This  was  formerly  served  as 
a  part  of  the  Lincoln  District. 

The  Cantua  School  on  the  West  Side  is 
issuing  books  to  the  people  of  the  com- 
munity through  the  summer  months.

his  position  the  first  of  May  to  care  for 
an  invalid  sister  in  Long  Beach.  On  the 
twenty-ninth  of  May  he  died  quite  sud- 
denly of  heart  trouble.  Mr  Fee  was  a 
member  of  the  C.  L.  A.  for  years  and  was 
quite  proud  of  the  fact. 

Boys'  Week  was  observed  in  the  Juve- 
nile Department  with  collections  of  books 
and  lists  calculated  to  interest  them  in 
books  written  for  their  si)ecial  tastes. 

We  have  a  new  custodian  at  the  Fire- 
baugh  Branch,  Mrs  Walter  Bishop,  and  at 
Miller  Branch,  Mrs  Emma  Coates.  Cen- 
ter Branch,  located  in  the  Hospitality 
Center  of  the  Y.  W.  C.  A.,  has  been 
closed  for  the  summer  as  the  association 
will  not  carry  on  their  work  there  during 
those  months. 

Several  trips  have  been  made  to  the 
mountain  branches  and  these  have  been 
found  in  good  condition.  Mrs  Lofberg, 
who  has  charge  of  the  camp  libraries  for 
the  Southern  California  Edison  Company, 
is  doing  a  fine  work  and  the  men  appre- 
ciate the  books  very  much.  They  read  a 
remarkably  good  class  of  books,  many 
carrying  on  their  studies  through  the 
library.

On  April  23  Mr  Bertram  Grosvenor 
Goodhue,  Architect  of  the  Central  Library 
building,  died  suddenly  in  New  York  City 
of  heart  failure.  His.  death  was  a  severe 
loss  to  'the  architectural  profession  in 
general  and  was  a  grievous  shock  to  his 
friends  in  Los  Angeles  and  to  the  members 
of  the  Library  Board.  Fortunately  plans 
for  the  Central  Library  building  were 
practically  completed,  which  simplified  the 
situation  arising  after  his  death.  After 
conferences  with  the  legal  representatives 
of  all  parties  concerned,  an  agreement  has 
been  reached,  in  accordance  with  which 
the  Associate  Architect,  Mr  Carleton  J\I. 
Winslow,  will  complete  the  contract  with 
the  Library  Board  and  will  furnish 
detailed  drawings  and  the  necessary  super- 
vision during  construction.  In  fact  the 
plans  and  specifications  have  ah'eady  been 
completed  and  bids  have  been  advertised 
for  and  August  13  set  as  the  day  on 
which  they  should  be  received. 

Early  in  June  ihe  contract  for  th<^ 
rough  grading  of  the  Central  Library  site 
and  excavation  for  foundations  was  com- 
pleted, about  75,000  cubic  yards  having 
been  removed  at  a  cost  of  approximately 
$56,000. 

The  City  Council  has  sold  the  balance 
of  the  bonds  of  the  1921  issue,  amounting 
to  $1,333,000,  and  also  the  entire  issue 
of   1023,    amounting   to    $.500,000,    which

was  voted  for  the  purpose  of  acquiring 
rlie  Flower  .street  frontage  of  the  Central 
I-.ibrary  site. 

Owing  to  certain  conditions  attached, 
Ihe  City  Council  saw  fit  to  reject  the 
pi'oposed  gift  of  Miss  Arline  Barnsdall. 
This  was  eight  acres  of  ground  surround- 
ing her  residence  on  Olive  Hill,  and  the 
residence  itself  which  she  intended  for  a 
branch  library. 

On  May  Gth,  by  an  overwhelming 
majority,  the  voters  of  Los  Angeles,  ap- 
itrovcd  a  new  City  Charter.  In  this 
charter  the  library  tax  rate  is  increased 
tive  cents  to  seven  cents  on  every  one  hun- 
dred dollars  worth  of  assessed  valuation. 

On  .June  10th  the  last  of  the  branch 
libraries  to  be  constructed  from  funds 
appropriated  from  the  1921  bond  issue 
was  opened.  This  was  the  branch  at  10th 
and  Gaffey  Streets  in  San  Pedro.  The 
total  cost  was  approximately  .$75,000,  of 
which  .$10,000  was  spent  for  the  site. 

During  this  quarter  two  branches  have 
been  removed  to  larger  quarters,  the  El 
Sereno  Branch  to  -5022  Huntington  Drive 
and  the  Gardena  Branch  to  827^  Palms 
Street,  Gardena.  In  these  new  locations 
it  is  expected  that  they  will  enter  upon  a 
new  period  of  usefulness. 

On  the  first  of  .Tune  the  library  suffered 
a  great  loss  in  the  resignation  of  Miss  M. 
Grace  Smitli,  principal  of  the  fiction  de- 
partment, who  was  forced  to  give  up  her 
work  on  account  of  poor  health.  In  her 
place  Miss  Katharine  D.  Kendig  was  ap- 
IKjiuted.  Miss  Kendig  had  been  acting  as 
principal  of  the  Cahuenga  Branch  Li-

The  building  has  been  painted  and 
tinted  outside  and  in,  and  some  odds  and 
ends  of  cabinet  work  have  been  done 
which  have  added  very  much  to  ease  of 
working  for  the  staff. 

A  garage  to  shelter  four  motors  has 
been   built,  for  the  use  of  the  staff. 

We  hung  the  Syracuse  Public  Library's 
"Map  of  Good  Stories"  conspicuously  in 
our  rotunda,  and  displayed  the  novels 
alluded  to  on  a  nearby  table.  This  was 
siTch  a  success  that  in  a  day  or  so  we 
had  to  take  down  the  map,  for  lack  of 
any  more  novels. 

In  May  we  displayed  in  our  sliowcase 
some  books  which  had  been  subjected  to 
improper  handling.  On  each  was  a  ticket, 
to  explain  its  presence.  On  top  of  the 
showcase  was  a  card  giving  the  cost  of 
replacement  of  these  books  whose  working 
life  had  been  shortened  by  abuse,  not  by 
legitimate  wear.  The  newspapers  gave

During  the  first  week  in  April  instruc-

in  the  use  of  reference  books.  We  feel

Miss  Susan  T.  Smith,  Lib'n. 

The  most  important  development  dur- 
ing the  la.st  quarter  has  been  a  change  in 
quartei-s  for  the  Elmhurst  and  Oak  Park 
branches.  Through  the  courtesy  of  the 
City  Board  of  Education,  the  Library 
was  given  permission  to  partition  off  one 
half  of  a  bungalow  on  the  Coloma  School 
grounds,  making  a  distinct  room  for  the 
Library.  The  walls  were  covered  with 
gray  beaver  board,  new  shelving  and  fur- 
niture added,  which,  with  the  bright  col- 
ured  posters  and  pictures,  have  made  the 
room  most  attractive,  A  corner  was  set 
apart  for  a  special  collection  of  children's 
books.  An  experiment  was  made  in  open- 
ing the  room  Saturday  afternoon  with 
Miss  Miller  in  charge,  while  Miss  Chiles 
of  the  Periodical  Department  told  stories 
every  other  Saturday.  The  story  hour 
was  ^iven  a  most  enthusiastic   reception

and    the    increase    in    circulation    for   two 
months  was  over  600. 

A  three  years'  lease  was  taken  of  a  one- 
story  building  on  Sacramento  Boulevard 
and  on  June  1st  the  Oak  Park  Branch 
was  moved.  Tlie  gray  tinted  walls  and 
newly  polished  furniture  have  transformed 
the  branch.  An  increas'e  of  500  in  the 
circulation  for  June  indicates  that  the 
change  was  advisable. 

Margaret  Chiles  has  taken  charge  of  liiu 
]McKinley  Park  Branch  since  the  resigna- 
tion of  Mrs  Thwaites.  She  still  remains 
Head  of  the  Periodical   Department. 

A  library  publication  called  The  Slaff 
made  its  appearance  the  1st  of  June. 
It  is  edited  and  mimeographed  by  members 
of  the  staff  and  shows  much  latent  literary 
ability.

In  addition  to  this  service  some  of  the

periud  than  the  last  three  months  inas- 
niiich  as  the  apportionment  for  the  year 
is  .i^lOlMJ  more  than  last  year  and  part  of 
it  was  received  in  February.  However, 
eveiyone  will  no  doubt  rejoice  with  those 
benefited  even  though  the  news  be  late. 
Contrary  to  wihat  mig:ht  be  expected  iwssi- 
bly,  no  advance  in  salaries  was  made 
because  those  in  authority,  at  the  sugges- 
tion of  the  librarian,  thought  the  ^^-iser 
tliinjr  to  do  was  to  tint  the  interior  and 
\nrnish  the  woodwork  and  on  the  outside 
paint  all  wood.  As  nothing  had  been  doue 
txcept  vairnish  the  floors  three  or  four 
limes  since  the  building  was  opened  to  the 
public  in  Aiugust,  1913,  it  seemed  that 
much  good  would  be  the  result.  Block 
lettei-s  have  been  placed  on  the  building 
notifying  the  public  that  this  is  the 
'■UPLAND  PUBLIC  LIBRARY,"  a 
great  addition  and  really  adding  to  the 
beauty  of  the  building  as  it  looks  as 
though  it  had  always  been  there.  Awn- 
ings also  have  been  placed  on  the 
^^  est  side  over  the  three  groups  of  win- 
dows and  ventilators,  making  the  room 
cooler  for  readers  and  making  a  softer 
light  alsfl.  Since  the  city  ti'ustees  and 
city  engineer  have  moved  down  town,  the 
room  formerly  used  by  tlie  city  engineer 
has  been  transformed  into  a  Baby  Con- 
ference room,  beautifully  decorated  and 
furnished  by  the  Red  Cross  Chapter. 
This  is  open  every  Tuesday  for  the  benefit 
of  the  babies  of  this  vicinity  and  is  in 
charge  of  the  city  nurse,  Mrs  Lottie  Fuller, 
and  Dr.  Mary  Craig  "Williamson.  A  long 
closet  used  formerly  by  the  city  engineer 
has  had  a  door  cut  through  one  end  and 
shelving  put  up  and  in  there  are  kept 
magazines  that  may  not  be  kept  in  filing 
cases  as  their  value  may  be  only  tempo- 
raiy. 

The  first  inventory  ever  taken  of  the 
library  was  in  January,  1924,  and  to  the 
eredit  of  all  concerned  may  it  be  said  that 
but  87  books  were  missing  that  could  not 
be  accounted  for  in  some  way. 

^liss  Aurelia  Ilarwood  made  a  gift  of 
a  $100  check  to  the  library  fund  for  books 
and  R.  R.  Harrington  one  of  $50  for  the 
same   ])urpose.      Blessed    be    our   friends !

on  the  west  side  of  the  library  and  two 
evergreens  at  the  front  I'ecently.  Upland 
Public  Librai7'  is  in  the  only  park  in  the 
city  consequently  it  is  used  for  piiblic

Mrs  Henry  Lippitt,  president  of  our 
Board  of  Librai^y  Trustees,  and  ten  of  our 
staff  attended  the  annual  meeting  of  the 
California  Library  Association  at  Pasa- 
dena April  2Sth  to  30'th.  Miss  Louise 
Peck,  head  of  our  catalog  department, 
planned  and  conducted  the  program  of  the 
combined  catalog  and  reference  sections. 
]Miss  Lena  Hunzicker,  head  of  our  refer- 
ence department,  was  chairman  of  a  com- 
mittee to  investigate  the  practicability  of 
a  uniform  method  of  marking  bound  maga- 
zines which  presented  recommendations 
and  an  exhibit.  Miss  Helen  Dysart,  our 
children's  librarian,  spoke  on  books  for 
the  intermediate  age  at  the  meeting  of  the 
children's  section.  Miss  Warren  spoke  on 
entertainment  material  at  the  municipal 
section.  Mrs  Mary  Fraser,  head  of  our 
business  department,  contributed  a  side 
show  to  the  Mondaj'  night's  carnival. 

That  the  library  workers  of  San  Diego 
who  could  not  go  to  the  C.  L.  A.  meeting 
might  hear  Miss  Madge  Jenison,  our  li- 
brary combined  with  the  San  Diego 
branch  of  the  American  Literary  Associa- 
tion to  have  her  for  dinner  and  a  talk  on 
the  evening  of  April  29th.  As  a  result  of 
our  president's  attendance  at  the  C.  L.  A. 
in  Pasadena  in  April  the  Board  of  Library 
Trustees  has  adopted  a  resolution  that  in 
the  future  the  librarian's  expenses  are  to 
be  paid  to  all  annual  library  meetings. 
This  has  not  before  been  the  policy. 

East  San  Diego,  the  largest  incorpora- 
ted city  next  to  San  Diego  in  our  county, 
last  fall  voted  to  become  a  part  of  San 
Diego.  The  election  was  contested,  how- 
ever, and  annexation  can  only  be  assured 
by  decision  of  the  supreme  court.  As  a 
temporary  expedient  the  San  Diego 
County  Free  Librai-y  has  agreed  to  run 
the  East  San  Diego  Library,  under  con- 
tract with  the  city  of  San  Diego,  until 
January,  1925.  Tlie  San  Diego  city 
council  has  by  special  ordinance  appro- 
priated funds  to  remunerate  the  county 
for  current  expenses.  By  next  year  it  is 
expected  that  the  controversy  will  be  set- 
tled  by   a   court   decision.

Old  Town,  the  P.  T.  A.  of  the  Fremont 
School  secured  the  use  of  a  room  in  a  dis- 
used school  building  from  the  Board  of 
Education,  fitted  it  with  book  cases  and 
reading  tables,  and  for  a  year  paid  one  of 
the  women  of  the  neighborhood  to  issue 
books  to  children  and  grown-ups  two 
afternoons  a  week.  The  books-  were  sup- 
plied by  our  stations  department.  Their 
use  has  justified  the  library  trustees  in 
taking  over,  from  July  1,  1924,  all  ex- 
penses of  the  little  branch.  Tlie  Parent

Mrs  Millar,  who  has  been  conducting  a 
course  in  "Special  Libraries"  at  the  Uni- 
versity of  California  Library  School, 
brought  her  class  on  a  tour  of  inspection 
to  our  library.  We  showed  them  the  little 
there  was  to  see,  but  tried  to  convey  the 
far  reaching  field  for  service  open  to  a 
library  in  any  big  corporation  or  banking 
institution  and  that  the  service  given 
should  not  be  measured  by  the  extent  of 
equipment. 

Through  the  cooperation  of  the  State 
and  County  libraries  a  scheme  is  being 
tried  out  whereby  the  employees  of  the 
Bank  of  Italy  throughout  our  84  branches 
may  be  put  in  touch  with  the  best  finan- 
cial and  economic  literature.  A  list  of  the 
best  books  on  banking,  intended  mostly 
for  the  junior  employees,  was  compiled  by 
us,  and  distributed  by  Mr  Ferguson  to  all

the  fuiinly  librarians  asking-  tlieni  to  cliock 
those  they  had  and  to  add  to  the  list  any 
suitable  substitute.  A  letter  was  sent  to 
(be  jjranch  manajjvrs  and  to  every  member 
of  our  staff,  advising-  them  of  the  scheme 
and  asking  for  their  cooperation. 

We  are  anxious  to  know  whether  the 
results  will  justify  the  work  this  has  en- 
tailed. It  did  seem  as  if  this  scheme 
might  bring  a  number  of  young  business 
men  in  touch  with  their  local  libraries  and 
that  coming  for  professional  books  they 
might  learn  of  the  number  of  other  treas- 
ures that  every  library  holds  for  those  who 
know  how  to  use  it.

Tlie  County  Libraries'  representative

Agencies  at  Agriculture  Hall,  June  11, 
1024. 

The  purpose  of  the  meeting,  as  stated 
l>y  the  chairman,  was  to  become  more 
familiar  with  the  plan  of  work  of  each 
representative ;  to  know  how  it  is  being 
(lone  and  to  see  if  opportunity  offers  to 
correlate  the  work  at  any  point  better 
than  it  is  at  present. 

In  order  to  cover  the  program  a  short 
talk  was  given  by  each  organization's 
representative  answering  three  suggested 
questions  : 

1.  Purpose  or  goal  of  the  organization 
as  regards  rural  life  in  California. 

2.  In  what  way  it  touches  nutrition 
Avork. 

3.  Facilities  of  your  organization  for 
accomplishing  this  work. 

Contra  Costa  County  was  asked  to 
demonstrate  its  progress  in  nutrition  work 
in  its  different  departments,  this  county 
having  been  used  by  the  Agricultural 
Department  as  a  demonstration  unit  for 
nutrition  work.  Miss  Helen  Burling, 
Home  Demonstration  Agent,  acted  as 
chairman  of  this  discussion.  Mrs  M.  M. 
Garrett,  representing  the  Farm  Bureau 
Centers ;  Mrs  Mabel  Tikiob,  a  project 
leader,   and  Mrs  Alice   G.   "\^^litbeck,   the 


County  Librarian,  all  gave  interesting 
notes  on  nutrition  as  they  saw  it.  Mrs 
AYhitbeck  siK»ke  of  their  library  buying 
health  posters  and  books  for  the  use  of 
their  Home  Demonstration  Agent  and 
County  Nurse,  an  interesting  work  and 
one  that  no  doubt  most  of  the  county 
librarians  are  doing. 

Some  very  interesting  agencies  were 
represented  there  and  all  reported  on 
their  interest  and  connection  with  nutri- 
tion work.  The  American  Red  Cross  was 
reported  on  by  William  Carl  Hunt,  man- 
ager Pacific  Division.  Avho  gave  a  very 
enlightening  talk  on  their  connection  with 
nutrition  work  in  California,  The  Cali- 
fornia Federation  of  Women's  Clubs' 
interest  was  given  by  Mrs  Sarah  Rails- 
back.  California  Tuberculosis  Associa- 
tion's important  work  was  told  by  Mrs 
Ethel  D.  Watts,  Mrs  Grace  Stanley, 
Commissioner  of  Elementary  Schools, 
presented  the  interest  of  that  department 
in  nutrition.  The  State  Board  of  Health 
was  represented  by  Ellen  E.  Stadtmuller, 
M.D.,  Director  of  Child  Hygiene.  A 
very  definite  connection  with  nutrition 
work  was  presented  by  her.  The  State 
Library's  facilities  and  willingness  to 
help  in  this  nutrition,  as  well  as  every 
other  good  woik  for  California,  was  well 
presented  by  Helen  M,  Bruner,  Sutro 
Branch  of  the  State  Library.  The  State 
Farm  Bureau  Federation  was  represented 
by  F.  L.  Selleck.  The  Dairy  Council 
work  was  given  by  S.  H.  Greene.  Mrs 
Hugh  Bradford,  State  President  of  tho 
Parent-Teachers'  Associations,  gave  a 
very  interesting  outline  of  the  close  con- 
nection of  their  clubs"  interest  in  nutri- 
tion, especially  in  the  schools.  The  county 
library's  purpose  and  goal  were  presented 
by  County  Librarian  Mary  Barmby.  She 
emphasized  the  fact  that  the  county  libra- 
ries are  the  channels  through  which  much 
of  interest  and  value  is  constantly  being 
sent  to  all  parts  of  the  state  and  that  if 
county  libraries  could  send  cases  of  bees 
or  a  skeleton  on  call  they  would  no  doubt 
gladly  help  to  send  nutrition  in  the  form 
of  books,  charts,  posters  and  lists.

County   Libraries'   Representative.

accounts  of  meetings  of  the  various 
library  clubs  and  similar  organizations 
throughout  the  state.  Previously  such 
accounts  have  been  printed  under  the 
library  where  they  have  been  held  or  the 
library  where  the  president  or  secretary 
was  located.  This  new  arrangement 
should  make  these  articles  more  available. 
News  items  of  the  various  clubs  are 
solicited.

SPECIAL   LIBRARIES  ASSOCIATION 
OF    SOUTHERN     CALIFORNIA. 

The  annual  business  meeting  of  the 
Special  Libraries  Association  of  Southern 
California  wa.s  held  on  June  24,  1924,  in 
the  Library  of  the  First  National  Bank 
with  Miss  Alice  Scheck  as  hostess.  The 
meeting  was  called  to  order  at  seven 
o'clock  by  the  President,  Mr  Marion. 

The  election  of  officers'  resulted  as 
follows : 

President,  Miss  Alice  Scheck,  Fii-st  Na- 
tional Bank,  Vice-Pres.,  Mr  B.  E.  EM- 
warAs,  Standard  Oil  Company ;  Sec- 
Treas.,  Miss  Rose  Marie  Purcell,  Southern 
California  Edison  Co. ;  Executive  Commit- 
tee, OflBcers  and  Mr  Guy  E.  Marion  and 
Miss  Mary  Ramona  Bean. 

A  letter  from  Mr  Redstone,  President  of 


the  Special  Libraries  Association,  was  re- 
ported by  Mr  Marion,  who  gave  the  sub- 
stance of  it  as  concerning  the  vote  of  this 
Association  on  the  change  of  the  Consti- 
tution to  be  acted  upon  at  the  Annual 
Meeting  of  the  Special  Libraries  Associa- 
tion and  asking  that  we  request  affiliation 
if  the  change  was  adopted.  This  brought 
about  much  discussion  as  to  the  intent  of 
the  law  and  how  it  would  affect  this 
organization.  Miss  Scheck  moved  that 
Mr  Marion  write  for  specific  information 
on  the  subject.  The  motion  was  carried 
and  the  following  suggestions  were  made 
as  to  points  to  be  submitted  :  Proportion 
of  dues  to  be  refunded,  what  proportion  of 
members  must  pay,  how  would  institu- 
tional membership  be  handled,  if  member- 
ship by  institutions  were  taken  might  it 
not  be  arranged  for  more  than  one  to  be 
member,  etc. 

Committee  Reports:  Miss  Fossler  re- 
ported for  the  Committee  on  the  Union 
List.  Miss  Fossler  said  that  more  assist- 
ance would  be  needed  soon  to  put  lists 
together.  She  asked  for  instinictions  on 
symbols,  etc.  Miss  O'Toole  reiwrted  for 
the  Membership  Committee,  in  the  absence 
of  Miss  Bean,  Chairman.  She  told  of 
letters  sent  out  to  the  various  libraries 
and  gave  list  of  names  of  those  becoming 
members.  Miss  Scheck,  Chairman  of  the 
Methods  Committee,  reported  the  trial  of 
a  plan  for  each  meeting  of  a  short  discus- 
sion of  methods  and  spoke  of  the  work 
planned  for  the  committee  if  we  affiliate 
with  the  Special  Libraries  Association. 
Mr  Marion,  chairman  of  the  Directory 
Committee,  reported  that  one  meeting  had 
been  held,  a  questionnaire  prepared  which 
would  soon  be  ready  for  distribution.  Miss 
Scheck  reported  for  the  Special  Commit- 
tee appointed  to  act  at  the  meeting  of  the 
California  Libraries  Association.  There 
was  no  Special  Libi-aries  Section  and  the 
failure  to  have  meeting  was  not  the  fault 
of  Miss  Drake,  President,  as  program  had 
to  be  printed  before  arrangements  had 
been  made. 

Mr  Marion  closed  his  term  of  office 
with  a  few  words  of  thanks  for  co-oi)era- 
tion  during  his  tej."m,  introduced  the  new

the  honor  given  her  and  pledged  her  wil- 


lingness to  carry  out  the  wishes  of  the

There  being  no  other  business  the  meet-

LAW  AND   LEGISLATIVE   REFER- 
ENCE   DEPARTMENT. 

Herbert  V.  Clayton,  in  charge. 

The  Law  and  Legislative  Reference 
Department  is  fully  equipped  with  the 
latest  reports,  digests,  encyclopedias  and 
textbooks,  the  statutes  of  other  states, 
the  United  States,  Great  Britain,  Can- 
ada, Australia  and  certain  other  foreign 
countries,  and  briefs  of  counsel  in  cases 
decided  in  the  California  Supreme  and 
Appellate  courts.  State  officers  are  en- 
titled to  borrow  books,  and  private  indi- 
viduals are  accorded  the  same  privilege 
upon  presentation  of  a  request  signed  by 
a  Supreme,  Appellate  or  Superior  Judge, 
or  other  state  officer.  Books  may  be  kept 
three  weeks',  and  will  be  once  renewed 
for  two  weeks.  All  books  are  subject  to 
recall,  if  required  by  a  state  officer,  or  if, 
in  the  opinion  of  the  Librarian,  a  recall 
is  fair  and  expedient. 

In  addition  to  special  service  to  mem- 
bers of  the  Legislature,  information  on 
the  laws  of  California  and  other  states 
and  countries  is  given  on  inquiry  from

REFERENCE    DEPARTMENT. 

Beulah  Mumm,  in  charge. 

The  Reference  Department  furnishes 
information  to  any  inquirer.  It  furnishes 
books  to  public  libraries  on  request  of 
the  librarian,  and  to  any  other  educa- 
tional institution  on  request  of  its  official 
head  or  its  librarian ;  to  individuals 
through  the  signature  of  a  state  officer, 
of  the  Librarian  of  the  local  library  or 
of  the  official  head  of  any  other  educa- 
tional institution  or  on  receipt  of  a  $5.00 
deposit :  to  a  club  or  grange  on  request 
of  its  president,  secretary  or  librarian. 
In  counties  having  county  free  libraries, 
all  requests  must  be  made  through  the 
county   free   library. 

The  questionnaire  sent  out  in  May 
dealing  with  the  use  of  the  two  copies 
of  the  reprint  of  recent  accessions 
from  Xeics  Xotes  of  California  Libraries 
showed  conditions  that  seem  worth  dis- 
cussion. A  few  libraries  reiwrt  that  the 
two  copies  are  clipped  and  mounted 
according  to  the  plan  adopted  long  ago. 
Several  libraries  report  that  this  is  not 
done  on  account  of  lack  of  time — a  situa- 
tion easily  imagiued.  Answers  from 
many  of  the  libraries,  however,  show  that 
the  purpose  of  sending  out  two  copies  has 
not  been  understood. 

The  plan  is  that  the  two  copies  should 
be  clipped  and  mounted  and  the  items 
filed  alphabetically.  This  would  provide 
for  each  librai-j'  an  author  catalog,  with 
call  numbers,  of  the  accessions  to  the 
State  Library.  Such  a  file  should  prove 
useful  along  many  lines.  Primarily  it 
would  save  time.  In  making  requests  the 
librarian  would  be  saved  looking  up 
author's  full  name  and  injpriut,  and  the 
State  Library  would  be  saved  looking  up 
the  call  number.  As  an  aid  in  book  selec- 
tion it  should  be  of  value.  The  positive 
assurance  that  a  certain  title  is  in  the 
State  Library  might  often  be  sufficient 
reason  for  not  purchasing.  Since  the 
author's  full  name  and  the  cla.ssification

local  libraries. 

While  the  reprints  of  recent  accessions 
were  first  made  at  the  request  of  some  of 
the  county  librarians,  they  will  gladly 
be  sent  to  any  of  the  city  libraries  also, 
that  care  to  clip,  mount  and  file  them  for 
the  uses  suggested. 

In  ^•iew  of  the  fact  that  the  plan  in 
regard  to  recent  accession  reprints  was 
not  entirely  understood  by  all  librarians 
the  State  Library  has  decided  to  prepare 
a  letter  to  send  out  to  all  new  county 
librarians  upon  taking  office.  The  letter 
will  attempt  to  cover  in  full  all  the  points 
of  State  Library  service.  Any  sugges- 
tion as  to  details  that  .should  be  included 
in  such  a  letter  will  be  gladly  considered.

Among  the  gifts  of  the  last  quarter 
have  been  over  a  hundred  volumes  in 
French  and  a  few  in  English  from  the 
I'ermanent  Blind  Relief  War  Fund,  and 
Ihe  first  few  titles  of  the  sixty-eight  to 
be  donated  by  the  U.  S.  Veterans' 
Bureau.  Both  these  collections  are  in- 
tended primarily  for  blinded  war  vet- 
erans, but  their  use  is  also  for  blind 
civilians  as  soon  as  the  demand  from 
veterans  has  been  filled.  As  there  are 
but  few  blinded  veterans  in  California, 
the  use  of  these  two  fine  donations  is 
])raetically  at  once  available  for  all  the 
blind  of  the  state.
