Several  changes  in  form  of  entry  for  items  in  the  index  have  been  effected, 
as  follows : 

Specific  headings  and  direct  paging  have  been  used  in  place  of  numerous 
cross-references. 

Libraries  have  been  listed  alphabetically  by  name  rather  than  under  location 
in  this  index,  since  they  are  arranged  alphabetically  under  county  and  city  in  the 
October  issue,  Neivs  Notes  of  California  Libraries. 

The  personal  name  index  has  been  augmented  in  that  all  chief  librarians  have 
been  listed,  with  direct  page  reference  to  their  libraries. 

Counties  and  many  cities  have  been  listed,  with  page  references.  For  loca- 
tion of  county  free  library  branches  and  stations  see  "Place  Index,"  pages  140-170, 
this  volume.

chairman  of  the  Christmas  party  com- 
mittee and  the  other  members  were  Mar- 
garet Bennett,  Grace  Murray,  John

A  number  of  librarians  from  other 
states  and  countries  visited  us  during 
the  quarter.  The  last  week  in  October 
Miss  Ella  V.  Aldrich,  on  leave  of  ab- 
sence from  the  University  of  Louisiana 
Library,  was  in  northern  California. 
Miss  Aldrich  was  making  a  study  of 
county  and  regional  libraries  on  an  A.  L. 
A.  fellowship.  She  met  Miss  Gillis  in 
Yreka  and  returned  with  her  to  Sacra- 
mento, where  she  spent  several  days  in 
the  State  Library  before  starting  a  series 
of  visits  to  the  county  libraries  of  Cali- 
fornia. On  October  28  Dr.  F.  D.  Hugo, 
Director  of  Education,  Natal,  South 
Africa,  visited  the  State  Library.  Dr. 
Hugo  was  especially  interested  in  the 
California  county  library  service  to  the 
rural  schools.  The  last  week  of  Novem- 
ber James  Goodwin  Hodgson,  a  special- 
ist in  government  documents  in  the  Uni- 
versity of  Chicago  Libraries,  spent  sev- 
eral days  in  the  Government  Documents 
Section  of  the  State  Library.  Dr.  G.  H. 
Sciholefield,  parliamentary  librarian  of 
New  Zealand,  was  a  State  Library  vis- 
itor November  26  and  27,  and  Dr.  Leon 
Carnovsky,    instructor    in    the    Graduate 


Library  School  of  the  University  of 
Chicago,  stopped  on  his  way  east  De- 
cember 23  to  see  the  State  Library. 

LIBRARY     HOURS 

Week  days 9  a.m.  to  5  p.m. 

The  library  closes  at  noon  on  Satur- 
days except  during  sessions  of  the  Legis- 
lature. 

BOOKS   FOR  THE   BLIND   SECTION 

Mabel  R.  Gillis,  in  charge. 

Embossed  books  in  the  various  types 
are  sent  to  any  blind  resident  of  Cali- 
fornia upon  application.  Circular  and 
finding  lists  with  Call  slip  postal,  will  be 
sent  on  request.  Writing  appliances  and 
games  for  the  blind  are  loaned  as  samples 
to  those  wishing  to  buy  such  articles,  so 
that  the  different  kinds  can  be  tried  be- 
fore they  are  ordered.  Addresses  of  firms 
supplying  all  articles  loaned  will  be  fur- 
nished on  request. 

Books  sent  to  individuals  from  an  in- 
stitution distributing  embossed  literature 
are  carried  free  through  the  mails. 

A  catalog  of  all  books  in  Moon  type 
in  the  Library  up  to  October  1,  1926,  and 
one  including  all  books  in  Braille  up  to 
April  1,  1927,  will  be  sent  to  anyone 
requesting  it.  News  Notes,  reprinted 
from  Neivs  Notes  of  California  Libraries, 
carrying  a  list  of  additions  to  the  Library 
each  quarter,  is  sent  to  each  blind  reader. 

The  State  Library  will  be  glad  to  have 
borrowers  who  care  to  do  so  write  any 
letters  or  requests  for  books  to  the  Li- 
brary in  Braille  or  New  York  point. 

Attention  of  the  borrowers  is  drawn  to 
the  fact  that  books  for  return  to  the  Li- 
brary should  always  be  placed  inside 
mail  boxes  and  not  left  on  top  of  them. 

Again  we  request  borrowers  not  to 
send  post  card  receipts  or  requests  to  the 
Library  inside  of  books.  When  books  are 
returned  they  often  go  out  very  quickly 
again  and  the  pages  are  not  opened  up 
one  by  one.  Therefore,  a  request  sent  in 
that  way  can  very  easily  be  lost  for  many 
months.  The  post  cards  should  be  sent 
in  the  mail  separately. 

Borrowers  are  requested  neither  to 
turn  down  the  corners  of  pages  nor  to 
fold  over  the  page.  Places  should  be 
kept  by  some  sort  of  book-mark. 

Books  may  be  kept  one  month.  At  the 
end  of  that  period  they  will  be  renewed 
on  request  unless  the  demand  for  them  is 
so  great  that  renewal  is  not  feasible. 

At  the  1931  session  of  Congress  an  an- 
nual appropriation  of  $100,000  was  made 
for  providing  books  for  adult  blind.  In 
1935  an  additional  $75,000  was  appropri- 
ated for  talking  books.  This  work  is 
handled  by  the  Library  of  Congress  with 
the  books  printed  at  or  purchased  from 
various  printing  houses.  The  California 
State  Library  has  been  designated  as 
one  of  the  centers  to  receive  the  books

Hereafter  tbe  list  of  state  publications

tinued, as  it  is  a  duplication  of  items  in

ENCE   SECTION

CALIFORNIA    STATE    LIBRARY

A  catalog  of  all  books  in  Moon  type 
in  the  Library  up  to  October  1,  1926,  and 
one  including-  all  books  in  Braille  up  to 
April  1,  1927,  will  be  sent  to  anyone  re- 
questing- it.  News  Notes,  reprinted  from 
News  Notes  of  California  Libraries, 
carrying  a  list  of  additions  to  the  Library 
each  quarter,  is  sent  to  each  blind  reader. 

The  State  Library  will  be  glad  to  have 
borrowers  who  care  to  do  so  write  any 
letters  or  requests  for  books  to  the  Li- 
brary in  Braille  or  New  York  point. 

Attention  of  the  borrowers  is  drawn  to 
the  fact  that  books  for  return  to  the  Li- 
brary should  always  be  placed  inside 
mail  boxes  and  not  left  on  top  of  them. 

Again  we  request  borrowers  not  to 
send  post  card  receipts  or  requests  to  the 
Library  inside  of  books.  When  books  are 
returned  they  often  go  out  very  quickly 
again  and  the  pages  are  not  opened  up 
one  by  one.  Therefore,  a  request  sent  in 
that  way  can  very  easily  be  lost  for  many 
months.  The  post  cards  should  be  sent 
in  the  mail  separately. 

Borrowers  are  requested  neither  to 
turn  down  the  corners  of  pages  nor  to 
fold  over  the  page.  Places  should  be 
kept  by  some  sort  of  book-mark. 

Books  may  be  kept  one  month.  At  the 
end  of  that  period  they  will  be  renewed 
on  request  unless  the  demand  for  them  is 
so  great  that  renewal  is  not  feasible. 

At  the  1931  session  of  Congress  an  an- 
nual appropriation  of  $100,000  was  made 
for  providing  books  for  adult  blind.  In 
1935  an  additional  $75,000  was  appropri- 
ated for  talking  books.  This  work  is 
handled  by  the  Library  of  Congress  with 
the  books  printed  at  or  purchased  from 
various  printing  houses.  The  California 
State  Library  has  been  designated  as 
one  of  the  centers  to  receive  the  books 
printed  from  this  appropriation.  Many 
titles  have  been  received  and  are  reported 
currently  in  the  list  of  books  added  with 
the  note  that  they  are  provided  by  the 
United  States  government  through  the 
Library  of  Congress.     See  page  80. 

The  first  book  was  loaned  June  13, 
1905.  There  are  now  3662  blind  bor- 
rowers, 55  borrowers  having  been  added 
during  January,  February  and  March.

OUTLINE  OF  STATE  LIBRARY  SERVICE  TO  OTHER 
LIBRARIES 


Introduction 

The  aim  of  the  State  Library  is  to  supplement  the  resources  of 
other  libraries  of  the  state.  Our  plan  is  to  purchase  the  unusual,  rare 
or  expensive  volumes,  and  other  material  that  is  urgently  needed  occa- 
sionally, but  not  necessarily  needed  often.  Material  which  may  be 
expected  to  be  in  frequent  demand  should  be  purchased  by  local  libra- 
ries. As  time  goes  on  and  local  collections  develop  with  well- 
rounded  reference  collections  and  with  general  material  selected  to  fit 
the  peculiar  needs  of  each  community,  it  should  be  increasingly  true 
that  the  State  Library  is  called  on  only  for  specialized  and  supple- 
mentary material,  and  for  advanced  research  service.  It  is  with  the 
above  points  in  view  that  the  State  Library  purchases  only  one  copy 
of  any  book.  Classes  of  material  not  represented  in  the  State  Library 
collection  are  English  fiction,  children's  books  and  medical  books. 

A  fundamental  point  in  State  Library  service  is  that,  in  a  com- 
munity7 where  there  is  a  library,  all  requests  be  sent  to  the  State  Library 
through  the  local  library.  In  a  county  where  there  is  a  county  library, 
branch  libraries  must  send  in  their  requests  through  the  central  office 
of  the  county  library.  Municipal  libraries  not  belonging  to  county 
library  systems  send  requests  direct  to  the  State  Library.  High  school 
libraries  not  belonging  to  county  library  systems  may  send  their 
requests  directly  to  the  State  Library  or  may  borrow  through  their 
local  municipal  libraries.  There  are  several  reasons  for  insisting  that 
requests  be  handled  by  libraries  whenever  possible :  the  local  librarian 
knows  local  resources  and  whether  or  not  the  request  can  be  handled  at 
home ;  the  local  librarian  thus  learns  what  local  needs  she  can  not  yet 
supply ;  time  and  expense  are  saved  for  the  State  Library  if  the  number 
of  centers  through  Avhich  communications  come  in  are  minimized.  In  a 
community  where  there  is  no  library  an  individual  may  apply  directly 
to  the  State  Library  and  receive  service  upon  presenting  an  application 
card  signed  by  a  state  officer  as  guarantor,  or  upon  making  a  deposit 
of  five  dollars. 


PART  1 

Requests — How  to  Make 

The  following  outline  gives  the  pro- 
cedure that  should  be  followed  in  making 
State  Library  requests.  If  this  is  care- 
fully studied  and  explicitly  followed  the 
highest  degree  of  speed  and  satisfaction 
in  service  will  be  secured. 

I.  General  suggestions. 

1.   Secure  as  much  information  as  pos- 
sible    from     borrower     requesting 


material  and  forward  all  essential 
points  to  State  Library. 

2.  Send  in  all  requests  on  slips  supplied 

by  State  Library,  using  a  separate 
slip1  for  each  author  request  and 
a  separate  slip>  for  each  subject 
request.  Notes  of  explanation  may 
be  attached  to  slips. 

3.  Use  author  request  slips  for  author 

requests  and  subject  slips  for  sub- 
ject requests. 

4.  Make  three  copies   of  each  request. 

Send  two  copies  to  State  Library 


(89) 


90 


NEWS    NOTES    OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES 


[July,  1936 


and  keep  one  copy  on  file  under 
heading  "Requested  from  State 
Library." 

5.  Never   advise    a    borrower    to    write 

direct  to  State  Library.  All  com- 
munications should  be  handled  by 
local  library. 

6.  Sign  all  slips. 

II.  Author  requests. 

1.  Give  authors  full  name,  if  possible. 

Be  sure  spelling  is  correct. 

2.  Give  complete  and  correct  title.     If 

title  is  very  long,  parts  may  be 
omitted,  but  first  few  words  should 
always  be  given. 

3.  Give  place   of  publication,   name  of 

publisher  and  date  of  publication. 

The  above  information  can  in 
most  cases  be  found  in  the  United 
States  Catalog  and  Cumulative 
Book  Index.  We  ask  that  those 
sources  be  checked  for  every  title 
before  the  request  is  sent  in. 

If  your  borrower  has  found  an 
advance  notice  of  a  current  book 
not  yet  listed  in  the  ordinary  trade 
lists,  or  a  review  in  some  unusual 
place  such  as  the  book  review 
section  of  a  technical  magazine, 
tell  us  where  the  notice  or  review 
was  found. 

If  you  are  not  able  to  find  the 
imprint  of  the  book,  find  out  from 
the  borrower  the  approximate  date 
of  publication  and  some  descrip- 
tion of  the  subject  matter.  In- 
clude this  on  your  request  slip. 

4.  Indicate   whether   the   exact   edition 

mentioned  is  required,  or  whether 
an  earlier  edition,  or  one  by  a 
different  editor  will  serve. 

5.  Underline  the  proper  words  on   the 

request  slip. 

a.  Branch  or  Central  library. 

b.  Immediate  need  or  later. 

If  it  is  known  that  the  book 
will  be  useful  to  your  bor- 
rower whenever  available,  un- 
derline the  word  "later"  on  tne 
request  slip.  If  the  book  is  in 
it  will  be  sent  immediately.  If 
the  book  is  out  the  report  will 
be  sent  to  that  effect,  indi- 
cating when  the  book  is  due, 
and  that  it  will  be  sent  later. 
Unless  the  word  later  is  under- 
lined on  the  request  slip,  the 
State  Library  does  not  reserve 
the  book. 

If,  however,  you  find  that 
your  borrower  can  use  the  book 
later,  after  having  asked  for  it 
as  an  immediate  need,   and  re- 


received  the  report  that  it  was 
out,  return  the  slip  to  the  State 
Library,  with  the  note,  "Send 
when  available,"  and  the  book 
will  then  be  sent  as  soon  as  itl 
comes  in. 

It  is  well  to  explain  to  your 
borrower  that  the  State  Library 
buys  only  one  copy  of  a  book, 
and  that  in  the  case  of  a  very 
popular  book  it  is  liable  to  be 
a  long  time,  sometimes  several 
months,  before  the  book  will  be 
available.  If  at  any  time  you 
find  you  no  longer  need  a  book 
which  you  have  asked  to  have 
reserved  for  you,  please  notify 
us  to  that  effect. 

c.  Exact  book  or  substitute. 

Suggest  to  your  borrower 
that  the  State  Library  is  will- 
ing to  select  a  substitute  if  the 
specific  title  is  out  or  not  in  its 
collection. 
6.  Give     State     Library     call     number 

when  you  can. 

III.  Subject  requests. 

1.  Indicate  purpose  for  which  the  mate- 

rial is  to  be  used :  club  paper, 
high  school  debate,  etc. 

2.  Give  as  much  information  as  possible 

as  to  exact  phase  of  subject 
wanted. 

3.  Define  words  when  there  is  a  chance 

of  ambiguity,  i.e.,  pattern  drafting 
may  mean  dress  patterns  or  sheet 
metal  work. 

4.  As    far    as    possible    indicate    what 

material  has  been  supplied  by  local 
library. 

Do  not  send  in  requests  without 
first  trying  your  own  resources. 

5.  Lists — when  asking  for  lists  be  par- 

ticularly careful  to  state  exact 
phase  of  subject  wanted. 

PART  2 

Requests — How  Answered 

The  method  followed  by  the  State  Li-  j 
brary  in  handling  requests  is  given  below. 

I.  Author  requests. 

1.  Books  in  State  Library. 

a.  If  the  book  requested  is  in  the 
State  Library,  the  call  number 
is  added,  and  dates  sent  and 
<  In  c  are  stamped  on  request 
slip. 

Law  books,  books  not  yet 
cataloged  and  government  pub- 
lications do  not  have  call  num- 
bers. 


VOl.  31,110.  3]  OUTLINE    OF    LIBRARY    SERVICE    TO    OTHER    LIBRARIES         91 


b.  If  the  State  Library  edition  is 
of  a  different  date  than  the  one 
requested,  or  varies  in  other 
ways,  editor,  translator,  etc., 
that  fact  is  noted.  If  the  dif- 
ference is  slight,  or  no  other 
library  has  the  requested  edi- 
tion, the  State  Library  copy  is 
sent  at  once,  but  if  the  differ- 
ence is  considerable,  the  report 
is  sent,  with  the  expectation 
that  the  requesting  library  will 
notify  us  if  our  edition  can  be 
used. 

2.  Books  not  in  State  Library. 

a.  Requests  are  checked  with 
union  catalog.  If  the  title  is 
listed  in  the  union  catalog,  we 
supply  any  omissions  on  re- 
quest slip,  such  as  author's  full 
name  and  imprint,  and  indicate 
what  libraries  in  the  state  own- 
the  book. 

For  a  description  of  the 
union  catalog,  see  Part  6,  sec- 
tion IV. 

b.  If  the  book  requested  is  not 
listed  in  the  union  catalog,  re- 
quests are  checked  through  the 
trade  catalogs  back  as  far  as 
1900.  A  particular  effort  is 
made  to  discover  whether  the 
book  wanted  is  a  current  pub- 
lication not  yet  listed  in  the 
obvious  sources. 

Unless  a  special  request  is 
made  for  the  full  imprint  we  do 
not  search  through  earlier  trade 
catalogs,  foreign  lists  nor  li- 
brary catalogs  such  as  the 
British  Museum  catalog. 

c.  Each  title  requested  is  consid- 
ered as  a  possible  purchase. 

If  it  is  decided  to  buy  the 
title,  this  is  reported  to  the 
requesting  library. 

II.  Subject  requests. 

Oall  numbers,  authors  and  titles  of 
books  sent  are  given  on  the  subject 
slips,  with  dates  due  and  sent 
stamped  on. 

III.  Rubber    stamps    used    in    answering 

requests. 
When   a   stamp  consists   of  more  than 
one  line,   a   check   is   typed   in  front 
of    the    line    which    applies    to    the 
request. 

1.    NOT   IN    STATE   LIBRARY 
ORD.    BUT   NOT   REC'D 
OUT.      DUE 
WILL    SEND   LATER 


Unless  a  check  has  been  typed  in 
front  of  the  "Will  send  later,"  we 
are   not   holding   your  request. 

2.  NO    LIBRARIES    LIST 
FOLLOWING   LIBRARIES  LIST 

When  many  libraries  list  a  title  we 
indicate  only  those  close  to  the 
requesting  library. 

3.  BEING    REPAIRED 
WILL   SEND   LATER 

This  means  that  the  book  is  being 
rushed  through  the  repair  section 
and  will  be  sent  just  as  soon  as 
possible. 

4.  STATE   LIBRARY   COPY   MISSING 

When  our  copy  of  a  book  can  not 
be  found  we  report  what  libraries 
list  in  union  catalog. 

5.  REFERRING    REQUEST    TO    SUTRO 

This  applies  mainly  to  requests  for 
genealogical  material. 

6.  FICTION 

State  Library  does  not  buy  English 
fiction,  except  California  titles 
which  are  kept  as  a  reference 
collection  and  do  not  circulate. 

7.  THIS  BOOK  DOES   NOT  CIRCULATE 

Books  not  available  for  circulation 
are 

(1)  Reference  tools. 

(2)  Valuable   books   which   could 
not  be  replaced  if  lost. 

(3).  Californiana  items. 

In  case  of  urgent  need  we 
sometimes  make  exceptions  to 
the  above  rule  and  lend  such 
books  for  a  limited  time,  with 
the  understanding  that  they 
are  to  be  used  only  in  the 
library. 

8.  DUPLICATE    OF    REQUEST    REPORTED 

OUT    DUE 

ORDERED NOT    RECEIVED 

WILL  ORDER 
WILL   SEND  LATER 

When  a  book  is  sent  out  which  has 
been  requested  as  a  "later,"  and 
about  which  we  have  reported 
"Will  send  later,"  a  duplicate  of 
the  original  request  slip  is  typed, 
with  the  above  legend  stamped  on, 
properly  checked. 

9.  WILL   SOON    BE   AVAILABLE 
DO  YOU   STILL  WANT? 

Because  the  State  Library  buys  only 
one  copy  of  a  book  it  is  sometimes 
several  months  before  a  given 
title,    requested    as    a    "later,"    is 


92 


NEWS    NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES 


[July,  1936 


available.  After  a  request  is 
three  months,  old,  a  duplicate  of 
the  original  request  is  sent  to  the 
borrowing  library,  with  the  above 
legend  stamped  on.  If  libraries 
will  check  up  on  outstanding  re- 
quests from  time  to  time,  and  can- 
eel  those  for  books  no  longer 
needed,  it  will  save  time  at  the 
State  Library. 

PART  3 

Handling  of  Books  and  Records  by 
Borrowing  Libraries 

I.  Request  slips. 

One  copy  of  the  two  slips  sent  to  the 
State  Library  is  kept  in  a  permanent 
file.  The  other,  filled  out  as  out- 
lined above,  is  returned  to  the  bor- 
rowing library. 

The  request  slips  indicating  that  books 
have  been  sent  from  the  State  Li- 
brary should  be  filed  in  "date  due" 
file,  and  after  the  books  have  been 
returned  to  the  State  Library  in  per- 
manent author  or  subject  file  of 
material  borrowed  from  the  State 
Library.  Keeping  this  permanent 
file  of  requests  gives  the  librarian 
some  idea  of  what  is  available  at  the 
State  Library  and  enables  her  to 
supply  the  State  Library  call  num- 
ber when  requesting  a  book  a  second 
time,  thus  saving  time  at  the  State 
Library.  If  it  is  found  necessary  to 
borrow  the  same  book  over  and  over, 
such  a  title  should  be  considered  for 
purchase  for  the  local  collection. 

Slips  for  books  not  in  State  Library 
should  also  be  kept  in  this  permanent 
file  to  show  the  librarian  what  mate- 
rial is  not  available  at  the  State 
Library. 

II.  Receipt  postals. 

For  each  package  of  books  sent  out  a 
double  postal  is  typed,  listing  each 
item  in  the  package.  The  return 
postal  should  be  carefully  checked 
with  the  books  in  the  package  and 
mailed  to  the  State  Library  as  a 
receipt.  If  the  shipment  is  to  the 
main  office  of  a  county  library  or  to 
a  city  library,  the  return  postal  is 
addressed  to  the  State  Library,  but 
if  the  shipment  is  to  a  branch,  the 
return  postal  is  addressed  to  the 
county  library.  When  the  county 
library  receives  the  return  postals 
they  should  then  be  sent  on  to  the 
State    Library    after    any    necessary 


records   are   made  at   county   library 
headquarters. 

III.  Missing  books. 

If  a  book  is  missing  from  a  shipment 
or  the  entire  package  is  not  received, 
or  there  is  any  sort  of  mistake, 
notify  the  State  Library  immediately. 
It  is  much  easier  to  check  up  on 
mistakes  at  once  than  after  several 
weeks  have  passed,  especially  when 
it  is  necessary  to  send  a  tracer 
through  the  post  office. 

IV.  Wrapping  packages. 

When  books  leave  the  State  Library 
they  are  carefully  wrapped  in  cor- 
rugated board  and  a  stout  wrapping 
paper,  with  a  cardboard  tag  tightly 
pasted  on.  When  returning  books 
use  the  same  or  similar  corrugated 
board  and  equally  stout  paper. 
Serious  damage  to  books  has  resulted 
from  careless  wrapping.  The  ad- 
dress tag  which  has  "California 
State  Library"  printed  on  the  other 
side  should  be  reversed  and  care- 
fully pasted  onto  the  package. 

V.  Return  slips. 

When  returning  books,  insert  a  return 
slip,  in  the  pocket  of  each  book.  This  1 
slipi  should  contain  the  name  and 
address  of  the  borrowing  library,  the 
call  number,  author  and  title  of  the 
book,  and  dates  due  and  sent. 

When  the  book  is  received  at  the  State 
Library,  this  slip  is  stamped  "Re- 
turned" with  the  date,  and  sent 
back  to  the  library.  Keep,  these 
slips  as  a  permanent  file  to  settle 
any  questions  that  may  arise. 

Books  should  reach  the  State  Library 
on  date  due  except  when  being  re- 
newed. 

VI.  Renewals. 

If  you  find  shortly  before  the  book  is 
due  that  your  borrower  is  not 
through  with  it  you  may  request  a 
renewal.  The  same  slip,  is  to  be  used 
as  when  the  book  is  returned,  giving 
the  same  information,  except  that 
the  phrase  "are  returning"  is  crossed 
out,  and  the  phrase,  "wish  renewal 
on"  is  underlined.  This  slip  will  be 
stamped  with  the  date  due,  two 
weeks  ahead,  and  returned  to  you. 
When  a  slip  is  marked  "not  renew- 
able" it  means  that  we  have  a  re- 
serve on  file  for  the  book  in  ques- 
tion and  so  are  not  able  to  extend 
the    time.       Requests    for    renewals

should  reach  the  State  Library  the 
day  the  books  are  due. 

While  all  request  slips  should  be  sent 
in  in  duplicate,  only  one  copy  of 
renewal  and  return  slip  is  needed. 

Overdue  notices  are  sent  out  on 
postals  one  week  after  the  books  are 
due.  Second  postal  notices  are  sent 
one  week  later.  Ten  days  after  that 
a  letter  is  sent  out,  stating  that  un- 
less the  books  are  returned  or 
renewed  within  a  week  a  bill  will  be 
sent.  If  no  reply  to  the  letter  is  re- 
ceived within  the  week,  a  bill  is  sent. 
Please  keep  your  records  up^to-date 
and  save  for  other  matters  the  time 
spent  on  overdue s. 

PART  4 

Transportation  Charges 

The  State  Library  pays  the  transpor- 
tation charges  on  outgoing  shipments 
when  lending  to  municipal  libraries, 
county  libraries  and  branches,  and  the 
borrowing  library  pays  on  return  ship- 
ments. High  school  libraries,  not  belong- 
ing to  the  county  library  system,  college 
libraries  and  individual  borrowers  pay 
transportation  charges  both  ways. 

A  special  postage  rate  is  allowed  by 
the  Post  Office  on  library  books.  The 
ruling  is  given  in  United  States  official 
postal  guide,  vol.  15,  p.  15,  July  1935. 

PART  5 

Notices  About  Branches 

Immediately  after  a  county  library 
branch  is  established  the  State  Library 
should  be  notified  so  that  full  informa- 
|  tion  as  to  the  address  may  be  added  to 
our  files.  Notify  us  at  once,  also,  of  a 
change  in  the  address  of  a  branch,  and 
when  a  branch  has  been  discontinued. 

"New  branch"  slips  are  sent  out  upon 
request.  Use  these  slips  for  this  pur- 
pose, since  information  given  upon  re- 
quest slips  is  liable  to  be  overlooked. 

PART  6 

Special    Services    of    State   Library 
I.  Foreign  books. 

The  State  Library  collection  of  foreign 
books  includes  titles  in  the  following 
languages : 

Bohemian  Greek,  Modern  Russian 
Danish  Hungarian  Spanish 

French  Italian  Swedish 

German         Portuguese  Yiddish 


These  books  may  be  borrowed  in  col- 
lections of  ten  or  fifteen  volumes  and 
kept  for  three  months,  to  allow  time 
for  them  to  be  passed  around  among 
the  whole  group1  of  foreign  readers. 

When  asking  for  foreign  books  let  us 
know  whether  your  borrowers  would 
enjoy  poetry,  drama,  etc.,  as  well  as 
fiction. 

From  time  to  time  we  have  published 
in  News  Notes  of  California  Li- 
braries lists  of  titles  in  the  various 
languages.  A  list  of  these  lists  is 
given  in  News  Notes  for  April  1936. 

II.  Pictures. 

The  collection  of  pictures  consists 
of  several  hundred  reproductions  of 
the  works  of  the  masters,  with  a  few 
examples  of  modem  work.  Many  of 
them  are  the  colored  Medici  or  This- 
tle prints,  and  all  are  framed  in 
buckram  and  equipped  with  eyelets 
so  that  they  may  be  hung. 

As  many  pictures  as  are  needed  may 
be  borrowed  at  one  time. 

Since  pictures  are  usually  wanted  for 
one  club  meeting,  or  other  special 
occasion,  they  are  lent  for  one  week, 
but  may  be  renewed  if  needed  longer. 

All  requests  for  pictures  should  reach 
the  State  Library  at  least  one  week 
in  advance  of  the  date  needed. 

A  printed  list  of  the  pictures  available 
for  circulation  is  to  be  found  in 
News  Notes  of  California  Libraries, 
January  1923,  p.  9-34.  A  copy  of 
this  list  may  be  borrowed  from  the 
State  Library.  Since  the  list  was 
printed  a  few  reproductions  of  the 
works  of  modernistic  painters  have 
been  added  to  the  collection. 

When  requesting  pictures,  each  picture 
should  be  listed  on  a  separate  slip'  the 
same  as  books,  giving  the  call  num- 
ber, and  the  artist's  name  and  title 
of  the  picture. 

III.  Lists  of  accessions. 

The  State  Library  has  no  recent  printed 
catalog  of  its  collection,  but  prints 
in  each  issue  of  News  Notes  of  Cali- 
fornia Libraries  a  list  of  the  acces- 
sions  during   the   preceding   quarter. 

Reprints  of  this  list  of  accessions  are 
issued  and  two  copies  sent  to  each 
county  library,  or  other  library  re- 
questing them.  The  idea  is  that  the 
two  copies  should  be  clipped,  each 
item  mounted  on  a  slip,  and  the  slips 
filed  alphabetically.  The  value  of 
such   a   file  is  evident   along  several 


94 


NEWS    NOTES    OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES 


[July,  1936 


lines.      State   Library    call    numbers 
are  given  in  these  lists. 

IV.  Union  catalog. 

The  union  catalog  is  an  important  asset 
to  the  inter-library  loan  system 
existing  among  California  libraries. 
The  foundation  of  this  catalog  is  the 
file  of  Library  of  Congress  printed 
cards,  for  which  the  State  Library 
is  a  depository.  To  this  file  is 
added  a  copy  of  the  author  card  of 
every  book  in  the  county  libraries, 
and  in  several  of  the  municipal  li- 
braries. The  University  of  Cali- 
fornia Library  and  Stanford  Uni- 
versity Library  also  send  us  a  record 
of  their  accessions,  and  some  other 
universities  and  colleges  send  cards 
for  selected  additions  to  their  col- 
lections. 
From  outside  the  state,  we  receive 
cards  for  the  union  catalog  from 
Harvard  University  Library 
University  of  Chicago  Library 
Michigan  University  Library 


Olin  Memorial  Library,  Wesleyan 

University 
John  Crerar  Library,  Chicago 

When  a  book  requested  is  not  in  our 
collection,  we  report,  from  the  in- 
formation given  in  the  union  catalog, 
in  what  libraries  in  the  state  it  may 
be  found.  If  requested  to,  we  will 
also  report  whether  it  is  to  be  found 
in  any  of  the  above  mentioned  li- 
braries outside  the  state. 

The  State  Library  does  not  borrow 
from  one  library  for  another  library. 

The- county  libraries  and  many  munici- 
pal libraries  maintain  a  generous  sys- 
tem of  inter-library  loans.  The  two 
university  libraries  are  willing  to  lend 
to  other  libraries  but  ask  a  service 
charge  of  5(W  on  the  first  volume, 
and  25<£  on  each  additional  volume  in 
a  package.  The  University  of  Cali- 
fornia College  of  Dentistry  and  Med- 
ical School  Library,  and  the  Lane 
Medical  Library  are  willing  to 
cooperate  in  their  special  fields.

questing  it.  News  Notes,  reprinted  from 
Netos  Notes  of  California,  Libraries, 
carrying  a  list  of  additions  to  the  Library 
each,  quarter,  is  sent  to  each  blind  reader. 

The  State  Library  will  be  glad  to  have 
borrowers  who  care  to  do  so  write  aDy 
letters  or  requests  for  books  to  the  Li- 
brary in  Braille  or  New  York  point. 

Attention  of  the  borrowers  is  drawn  to 
the  fact  that  books  for  return  to  the  Li- 
brary should  always  be  placed  inside 
mail  boxes  and  not  left  on  top  of  them. 

Again  we  request  borrowers  not  to 
send  post  card  receipts  or  requests  to  the 
Library  inside  of  books.  When  books  are 
returned  they  often  go  out  very  quickly 
again  and  the  pages  are  not  opened  up 
one  by  one.  Therefore,  a  request  sent  in 
that  way  can  very  easily  be  lost  for  many 
months.  The  post  cards  should  be  sent 
in  the  mail  separately. 

Borrowers  are  requested  neither  to 
turn  down  the  corners  of  pages  nor  to 
fold  over  the  page.  Places  should  be 
kept  by  some  sort  of  book-mark. 

Books  may  be  kept  one  month.  At  the 
end  of  that  period  they  will  be  renewed 
on  request  unless  the  demand  for  them  is 
so  great  that  renewal  is  not  feasible. 

At  the  1931  session  of  Congress  an  an- 
nual appropriation  of  $100,000  was  made 
for  providing  books  for  adult  blind.  In 
1935  an  additional  $75,000  was  appropri- 
ated for  talking  books.  This  work  is 
handled  by  the  Library  of  Congress  with 
the  books  printed  at  or  purchased  from 
various  printing  houses.  The  California 
State  Library  has  been  designated  as 
one  of  the  centers  to  receive  the  books 
printed  from  this  appropriation.  Many 
titles  have  been  received  and  are  reported 
currently  in  the  list  of  books  added  with 
the  note  that  they  are  provided  by  the 
United  States  government  through  the 
Library  of  Congress.     See  page  127. 

The  first  book  was  loaned  June  13, 
1905.  There  are  now  3653  blind  borrow- 
ers, 34  borrowers  having  been  added  dur- 
ing April,  May  and  June,  and  43  borrow- 
ers lost  by  death  from  July  1,  1935,  to

In    Standard    English    Braille 

These  are  the  books  that  use  the  con- 
tractions adopted  by  the  English  speaking 
nations  as  the  standard  Braille  system. 
The  contractions  have  been  gradually 
introduced  in  our  American  periodicals 
and  books.  Since  all  books  in  this  type 
are  contracted  the  "c"  in  front  of  the 
author's  name  is  omitted.

CALIFORNIA  LIBRARIES— ANNUAL  STATISTICS 


In  June  annual  report  blanks  were  sent  to  all  California  libraries 
listed.  Statistics  from  these  annual  reports  are  printed  in  this  issue. 
Except  when  otherwise  noted,  statistics  are  for  the  period  from  July  1, 
1935,  to  June  30,  1936. 

The  assessed  valuation  as  given  for  each  county  does  not  include 
the  value  of  intangible  property,  a  third  of  the  tax  on  which  goes  to  the 
county. 

Population  statistics,  as  of  1930,  are  given  for  all  towns  having 
municipal  libraries. 

New  forms  of  annual  report  blanks  were  used  this  year,  with 
separate  forms  for  municipal  and  county  libraries  so  that  requests  for 
statistics  would  apply  more  specifically  to  the  needs  and  conditions  of 
each  type  of  library.  As  nearly  as  possible  these  forms  were  made  in 
accordance  with  the  A.  L.  A.  statistical  report  blanks. 

In  response  to  a  demand  for  statistics  regarding  juvenile  collections 
and  service,  Ave  have  included  such  figures  in  every  instance  reported 
from  municipal  libraries. 

Branch  library  statistics  are  omitted  under  the  names  of  various 
branches.  They  are  included,  however,  in  the  general  figures  given 
under  the  main  library.  For  this  reason,  statistics  for  their  own  books 
only  and  not  for  county  service  are  shown,  as  a  rule,  by  high  school, 
public  and  other  libraries  which  are  affiliated  with  a  county  free  library. 

An  effort  is  made  to  have  the  statistics  uniform  in  reference  to 
number  of  branches  and  stations.  For  purposes  of  statistics  in  this 
publication,  the  following  definitions  and  requirements  have  been 
applied : 

The  total  number  of  distributing  I  books.  A  school  which  is  served  by  the 
agencies  of  a  municipal  library  includes  j  county  library  and  has  not  a  central  li- 
the main  library  as  well  as  its  branches  brary  room  meeting  the  conditions  of  a 
and  stations.  branch  is  a  school  station.     It  is  counted 

The  central  office  of  a  county  library  I  just  as  one  even  though  the  books  may 
is  counted  in   total  number   of  distribut-    be   divided    into    a   number    of   classroom 


ing    agencies    only    if    it    gives    the    same 
service  as  a  branch. 

A  community  or  school  branch  is  an 
auxiliary  library,  with  a  permanent  foun- 
dation collection  of  books,  reading  room 
facilities,    and    at   least    one   librarian    or 


collections. 

A  school  branch  or  station  which  gives 
community  service  is  designated  by  (c) 
following  the  name  of  such  distributing 
agency  of  the  county  library.  A  com- 
munity branch  or  station  which  is  merely 


custodian    in    charge    at    time    open.      It  located  in  a  school  building  and  not  con- 
must  meet  all  three  of  these  requirements,  nected  otherwise  with  the  school  library 
A    deposit    station    is    a    book    lending  service    is    listed    only    as    a    community 
agency    with    a    changing    collection    of  agency. 

In  order  to  keep  statistics  given  herein  consistent  with  figures 
given  by  the  State  Department  of  Education,  we  have  counted  all  dis- 
tricts in  a  union  district  as  separate  districts  in  number  of  "active

139 


school  districts  that  have  joined"  county  libraries,  but  not  in  total 
number  of  distributing-  agencies. 

Under  county  library  statistics  "school  average  daily  attendance" 
has  been  given  in  an  attempt  to  show  more  accurately  the  number  of 
users  of  the  library.  Similarly,  in  an  effort  to  make  the  circulation  as 
given  more  nearly  correct,  some  county  libraries  count  the  use  of  sup- 
plementary books.  Only  in  instances  where  this  figure  is  an  actual  and 
not  estimated  count  of  supplementary  books  circulated  for  home  use 
has  it  been  reported  in  statistics. 

All  libraries  are  listed  except  elementary  public  school  and  church 
libraries  and  those  which  belong  to  private  individuals.  They  are 
arranged  alphabetically  by  place  under  counties  and  counties  are 
arranged  alphabetically.  To  determine  the  county  in  which  any  place 
is  located  see  list  following  these  introductory  paragraphs.  This  list 
includes  locations  of  branch  and  station  libraries,  although  they  are 
listed  only  under  the  main  library. 

The  libraries  marked  in  text  with  an  asterisk  (*)  are  not  free  to
