CALIFORNIA    STATE    LIBRARY 


to  those  wishing  to  buy  such  articles,  so 
I  hat  the  different  kinds  can  bo  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  re- 
questing it.  Neivs  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 
borx'owers  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.  Since  that  time 
appropriations  for  both  purposes  have 
been  made  each  year.  This  work  is 
handled  by  the  Library  of  Congress  with 
the  books  printed  at  or  purchased  from 
various  iirinting  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  cur- 
rently 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  40. 

Since  May,  1936,  the  State  Library  has 
had  the  responsibility  of  assigning  several 
hundred  talking  book  machines  in  Cali- 
fornia and  Nevada  to  blind  persons  unable 
to  purchase  such  machines  for  themselves. 
These  machines  were  made  as  a  W.  P.  A. 
project  and  have  been  distribiited  as  loans 
for  an  indefinite  period.  Those  persons 
who  are  interested  in  borrowing  them 
should  write  to  the  State  Library.     They 


will  be  sent  application  blanks  in  turn  as 
more  machines  are  available  for  distribu- 
tion. 

The  first  book  was  loaned  June  13, 
1905.  There  are  now  4072  blind  borrow- 
ers, 79  borrowers  having  been  added  dur- 
ing October,  November  and  December. 
Total  accessions  are  44,828,  as  follows : 
New  York  point  books  2989 ;  New  Y(jrk 
point  music  188  ;  American  Braille  books

LIBRARY  HOURS 

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

The  Prints  Room  is  open  lAso  the  sec- 
ond Tuesday  evening  of  each  month  from

The  library  closes  at  noon  on  Saturdays, 
except  during  sessions  of  the  Legislature. 

BOOKS   FOR   THE   BLIND   SECTION 

Mrs.  Carol  I.  Alderson,  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  Mulshing  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  re- 
questing it.  News  Notes,  reprinted  from 
News  Notes  of  California  Liiraries, 
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  thnt  jjeriod  they  will  be  renewed 
on  request  unless  the  demand  for  them  is 
so  great  that  reneM'al  is  not  feasible. 

At  the  1981  session  of  Congress  an  an- 
nual appropriation  of  $100,0€0  was  made  . 
f"r  indviding  books  for  adult  blind.  In 
1935  an  additional  .$75,000  was  appropri- 
ated 'for  tn  Iking  books.  Since  that  time 
appropriations  for  both  purposes  have 
been  made  ea'h  year.  This  work  is 
handled  liy  the  Library  of  Congress  with 
th?  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  cur- 
rently 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  85. 

Since  May,  1936,  the  State  Library  has 
had  the  responsibility  of  assigning  several 
hundred  talking  book  machines  in  Cali- 
fornia and  Nevada  to  blind  persons  unable 
to  purchase  such  machines  for  themselves. 
These  ma  chines  were  made  as  a  W.  P.  A. 
project  and  have  been  distributed  as  loans 
for  an  indefinite  period.  Those  persons 
who  are  interested  in  borrowing  them  i 
should  w^rite  to  the  State  Library.  They  I 
will  be  sent  application  blanks  in  turn  as

CALIFORNIA    STATE   LIBRARY

was  occupied  in  August,  1928.  In  it  are 
kept  the  prints  acquired  by  the  State  Li- 
brary during-  years  past  and  now  for  the 
first  time  suitably  housed  and  displayed. 
In  display  cases  can  be  shown  about  fifty 
prints  at  a  time  and  exhibits  are  con- 
stantly maintained.     Visitors  are  invited. 

No  prints  were  catalogued  during  the 
quarter,  so  the  total  remains  3483. 
Visitors  for  the  last  three  months  nuni- 
]i.M-ed  610. 

Prints  shown  in  January  were  from 
fli!^  annual  exhibition  of  the  California 
Society  of  Etchers.  In  February  the 
exhibition  consisted  of  copper  plate  en- 
gravings by  Joseph  Hecht,  loaned  to 
the  library  by  G.  S.  Courvoisier  of  San 
Francisco.  Etchings  of  John  W.  Wink- 
ler, from  the  library's  own  collection, 
were  displayed  during  March. 

The  prints  librarian  made  two  talks 
during  the  quarter,  one  at  Gridley  and 
the  other  at  Jackson. 

On  March  eighth  was  inaugurated  the 
practice  of  opening  the  Pirints  room 
from  7  to  9  p.m.  on  the  second  Tuesday 
of  the  month. 

REFERENCE    SECTION 

Bexxlah   Mumm,    Supervising   Librarian. 

The  Reference  Section  furnishes  infor- 
mation to  any  inquirer.  It  furnishes 
books  to  public  libraries  on  request  of 
the  librarians,  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, 
or  on  receipt  of  a  $5.00  deposit ;  to  a  club 
on  request  of  its  president,  secretary  or 
librarian. 

The ,  interest  shown  in  the  exhibit  of 
rare  and  unusual  garden  books  now  on 
display  in  the  Reference  Room  leads  us 
to  call  the  attention  of  all  libraries  to 
our  collection  of  garden  books.  While 
our  reduced  book  fund  has  made  it  im- 
possible for  us  to  purchase  all  the  de- 
lightful current  gardening  books  that 
are  appearing  from  time  to  time,  we  do 
have  cause  to  take  pride  in  our  collection 
of  the  older  titles.  There  are  many 
volumes  dealing  with  the  history  of 
gardening  and  with  gardening  in  Eng- 
land and  other  foreign  countries.  There 
are  also  many  volumes  with  delightful 
colored  plates.  Two  items  now  on  display 
which  are  of  particular  interest  are  the 
three  volume  set  on  camellias  by  Berlese 
Iiublishfd  in  Paris  in  the  lS40's  and 
the  five  volume  set  on  geraniums  by 
Robert  Sweet  published  in  England  from 


1S20-1S30.  The  colored  plates  in  these 
two  sets  are  particularly  attractive. 
These  two  items  and  many  others  are 
too  valuable  for  circulation  but  are  al- 
ways available  for  inspection  at  the  State 
Library.  Thdre  are,  however,  many 
nicely  illustrated  and  interesting  vol- 
umes which  are  available  for  circulation.

LIBRARY  HOURS 

Week  days  9  a.m.  to  5  p.m.,  except  July 
and  August,  when  the  hours  are  8  a.m.  to 
4  p.m. 

The  Prints  Room  is  open  also  the  sec- 
ond Tuesday  evening  of  each  month  from 
7  to  9  p.m. 

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

BOOKS    FOR   THE    BLIND   SECTION 

Mrs.  Carol  I.  Alders  on,  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  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 
Libi-ary  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 
193.5  an  additional  $75,000  was  appropri- 
ated for  talking  books.  Since  that  time 
appropriations  for  both  purposes  have 
been  made  each  year,  $100,000  being  the 
appropriation  made  in  July,  1937  for 
the  production  of  talking  books.  This 
work  is  handled  by  the  Library  of  Con- 
gress v/ith  the  books  printed  at  or  pur- 
chased from  various  printing  houses.  The 
California  State  Library  has  been  desig- 
nated as  one  of  the  centers  to  receive  the 
books  and  the  talking  book  records  sup- 
plied from  this  appropration.  Many  titles 
have  been  received  and  are  reported 
currently  in  the  list  of  books  added  with 
tlip  note  that  they  are  provided  by  the 
United  States  government  through  the  Li- 
brary of  Congress.     See  page  135. 

Since  May,  1936,  the  State  Library  has 
had  the  responsibility  of  assigning  several 
hundred  talking  book  machines  in  Cali- 
fornia and  Nevada  to  blind  persons  unable 
to  purchase  such  machines  for  themselves. 
These  machines  were  made  as  a  W.  P.  A. 
project  and  have  been  distributed  as  loans 
for  an  indefinite  period.  Those  persons 
who  are  interested  in  borrowing  them 
should  write  to  the  State  Library.  They 
will  be  sent  application  blanks  in  turn  as 
more  machines  are  available  for  distribu- 
tion. 

The  first  book  was  loaned  June  13, 
1905.  There  are  now  4216  blind  borrow- 
ers, 79  borrowers  having  been  added  dur- 
ing April,  May  and  June.  Total  acces- 
sions are  47,637,  as  follows:  European 
Braille  books  4944;  Moon  books  10,375; 
Revised  Braille  books  14,329 ;  Standard 
English  Braille  books  7080;  all  other 
types  7050;  Braille  books  about  music 
and  Braille  music  scores  2295 ;  *  appli- 
ances 88  ;  *  games  58  ;  maps  35.  Total 
talking  books    (containers)    906. 

During  April,  May  and  June  11,021 
books,  etc.,  were  loaned  as  follows : 
Braille  grades  1  and  li  2347;  Braille 
grade  2  1560 ;  Moon  2649 ;  all  other  types

Bartunek,  F.  B.  Beans,  Mrs.  Olive  Bell, 
Mrs.  C.  W.  Brett,  W.  A.  Buckbee,  Ida

Heebert  V.  Clayton,  Supervising  Libra- 
rian. 

The  Law  and  Legislative  Reference

reports,  digests,  encyclopedias  and  text- 
books, the  statutes  of  other  states,  the 
L'nited  States,  Great  Britain,  Canada,

tries and  briefs  of  counsel  in  eases  de- 
cided in  the  California  Supreme  and  Ap-

are  accorded  the  same  privilege  upon 
presentation  of  a  request  signed  by  a 
Supreme,  Appellate  or  Superior  Judge,  or 
other  state  officer.     All  books  are  subject 


to  recall,  if  required  by  a  state  officer,  or 
if,  in  the  opinion  of  the  Librarian,  a  re- 
call 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  counties  is  given  on  inquiry  from 
libraries  and  individuals. 

Recent  accessions  to  the  section  will  be

A  handbook  of  Library  Laics  of  the

printed  for  distribution. 

ORDER  SECTION 

Myrtle  Ruhl,  Supervising  Librarian. 

During  April,  May  and  June,  1617 
books  were  accessioned. 

PRINTS   SECTION 

Bertha  S.  Taylor,  Librarian. 

The  Prints  Section  has  been  established 
only  since  the  new  State  Library  building 
was  occupied  in  August,  1928.  In  it  are 
kept  the  prints  acquired  by  the  State  Li- 
brary during  years  past  and  now  for  the 
first  time  suitably  housed  and  displayed. 
In  display  cases  can  be  shown  about  fifty 
prints  at  a  time  and  exhibits  are  con- 
stantly maintained.  The  Prints  room  is 
open  on  the  second  Tuesday  evening  of 
the  month,  from  7  to  9  as  well  as  during 
usual  library  hours.     Visitors  are  invited. 

No  prints  were  catalogued  during  the 
quarter,  so  the  total  remains  3483. 
Visitors  for  the  last  three  months  num- 
bered 1084. 

The  April  exhibition  consisted  of  pho- 
tographs representing  the  year's  best 
prints  of  the  Sierra  Camera  Club  of  Sacra- 
mento. Dr.  George  Joyce  Hall  donated  a 
prize  of  five  dollars  for  the  maker  of  the 
print  which  should  win  a  popularity  con- 
test. Each  visitor  to  the  Prints  room 
during  the  month  cast  a  vote  for  his  fa- 
vorite. The  result  was  a  tie  between 
"Magnolia  Blossoms"  by  Grant  Duggins 
and  "Woodland  Melody"  by  John  Pardee. 
The  exhibition  for  the  month  of  May  was 
from  the  Prairie  Print  Makers  of  Wichita, 
Kansas.  In  June,  prints  by  Perham  Wil- 
liam Nahl  were  shown.  Loaned  by  his 
daughter,  Miss  Marylee  Nahl,  the  collec- 
tion included  drawings,  monotypes,  litho- 
graphs and  etchings. 

Two  talks  were  made  by  the  Prints 
Section  Librarian  in  April.  One  was 
given  before  the  Applegate  Wednesday 
Club  and  the  other  before  the  Fine  Arts 
Section,  A.  A.  U.  W.,  in  Sacramento.

NEWS   NOTES   OF    CALIFORNIA   LIBRARIES 


[Oct.,  1938 


GIFTS  AND  BEQUESTS 


In  response  to  a  request  from  the  Friends  of  Libraries  Committee 
of  the  American  Library  Association,  we  have  attempted  to  gather 
information  on  gifts  and  bequests  to  California  libraries  during  the 
past  year. 


Approval  of  the  Executive  Board  of  the 
association  was  given  to  recommendations 
of  its  committees  as  follows: 

"That,  to  stress  the  value  of  li- 
brary gifts  and  to  make  the  public 
more  'gift-conscious,'  the  Committee 
recommends : 

(a)  That  the  Graduate  Library 
School  of  the  University  of  Chicago 
be  asked  to  assign  as  a  thesis,  a 
study  of  library  philanthropy ;  such 
a  study  to  include  not  only  mention 
of  gifts  which  have  been  made  but 
should  ascertain,  if  possible,  the  mo- 
tives back  of  the  gifts  and  how  they 
were  inspired. 

(b)  That  the  League  of  Library 
Commissions  be  asked  to  cooperate  in 
this  eifort. 

(c)  That  each  state  bulletin  de- 
vote one  issue  a  year  to  gifts  and 
bequests." 

Our  summary  of  information  on  gifts 
and  bequests  within  California  suggests 
that  more  publicizing  of  contributions 
could  well  be  tried  as  a  means  of  increas- 
ing their  number.  National  library 
periodicals  have,  from  time  to  time, 
offeretl  suggestions  on  such  publicity  as 
well  as  other  means  of  promoting  library 
benefactions.  While  universities  and 
colleges  generally  print  an  annual  list 
of  gifts  to  the  institutions,  it  appears 
that  few  of  our  public  libraries  even 
feature  a  paragraph  on  gifts  and  be- 
quests, simple  or  grand  as  they  may  be, 
in  their  regular  annual  reports  or  printed 
bulletins. 

To  a  letter  sent  out  from  the  State 
Library  to  all  municipal,  county  and  dis- 
trict libraries  in  June,  1938,  accompany- 
ing the  annual  report  forms  for  Cali- 
fornia libraries,  less  than  fifty  direct 
statements  have  been  received,  although 
additional  information  has  been  collected 
from  occasional  newspaper  items  and 
from  general  annual  reports  of  libraries. 


Our  request  for  listing  of  contributions 
suggested  inclusion  of  "outstanding  serv- 
ices rendered  by  individuals,  Friends  of 
the  Library  groups,  benefit  affairs  for 
library  funds,  loans  of  fine  exhibits,  etc., 
as  well  as  outright  bequests  and  gifts 
of  money,  land,  collections  of  books,  pic- 
tures and  music."  From  the  information 
available  we  find  that  many  libraries  have 
received  gifts  of  some  books  and  periodi- 
cals, but  only  fourteen  note  the  gift  of 
special  collections  or  individual  libraries 
of  books.  Paintings,  prints  or  other  art 
objects  were  reported  given  to  eleven 
libraries,  and  five  librarians  mentioned 
the  receipt  of  music  collections. 

There  are  now  nearly  two  hundred 
library  buildings  in  the  State  which  have 
been  wholly  or  partly  gifts,  and  during 
the  past  year  donations  of  a  building 
site  and  one  building  and  lot  have  been 
added  to  this  total.  Gifts  and  bequests 
of  money,  usually  for  purposes  stipulated 
by  the  donor,  have  been  reported  from 
fifteen  libraries,  with  benefit  affairs  add- 
ing to  this  total  from  several  sources. 
Many  librarians  gratefully  mention  the 
loan  of  fine  exhibits  for  library  purposes 
and  two  note  outright  gifts  of  collections. 
Additions  to  the  garden  and  landscaping 
of  two  buildings  were  included  in  gifts, 
and  surely  many  librai-y  rooms  have  been 
brightened  with  fresh  flowers  sent  in 
from  time  to  time,  although  only  one 
librarian  makes  written  acknowledgment 
of  this  courtesy.  Flags,  shrines  of  the

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, 
1937,  to  June  30,  1938. 

The  assessed  valutaion  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  are  given  for  all  towns  having  municipal 
libraries.  Figures  for  land  area  and  population  as  used  in  this 
publication  are  taken  from  statistics  in  the  U.  S.  Census  Population 
Bulletin,  1930. 

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  sho-wTi,  as  a  rule,  by  high  school, 
city  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  distributing  agencies  of  libraries.  For  purposes  of  statis- 
tics in  this  publication,  the  following  definitions  and  requirements  have 
been  applied. 


The  total  number  of  distributing 
agencies  of  a  municipal  library  includes 
the  central  library  as  well  as  its  branches 
and  stations. 

The  central  office  of  a  county  library 
i.s  counted  in  total  number  of  distributing 
agencies;  but  it  is  neither  counted  nor 
listed  as  a  separate  community  branch 
or  station. 

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 
custodian  in  charge  at  time  open.  It 
must  meet  all  three  of  these  requirements. 

A  deposit  station  is  a  book  lending 
agency  with  a  changing  collection  of 
books.  A  school  which  is  served  by  the 
county  library  and  has  not  a  central  li- 
brary room  meeting  the  conditions  of  a 
branch  is  a  school  station.  It  is  counted 
just  as  one  even  though  the  books  may 
be  divided  into  a  number  of  classroom 
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 
located  in  a  school  building  and  not  con- 
nected otherwise  with  the  school  library 
service  is  listed  only  as  a  community 
agency. 

Any  station  which  has  a  reading  room 
is  designated  by  (r.  r.)  following  the 
name  of  the  station. 

Municipal,  district  and  high  school  li- 
braries which  have  affiliated  with  a 
county  library  for  service  are  counted  in 
total  number  of  distributing  agencies  of 
that  county  library  although  listed  sepa- 
rately from  both  its  branches  and 
stations. 

In  order  to  keep  statistics  given  herein 
consistent  with  figures  given  by  the  State 
Department  of  Education,  wo  have 
counted  all  districts  in  a  union  district  as 
separate  districts  in  number  of  "active 
school  districts  that  have  joined"  county 
libraries,  but  not  in  total  number  of  dis- 
tributing agencies. 

Under  county  library  statistics,  "school 
average  daily  attendance"  for  schools 
served   by   the   county   library   has   been 


150

[Oct.,  1938 


given  in  an  attempt  to  show  more  ac- 
curately the  number  of  users  of  the 
library.  Similarly,  in  an  effort  to  make 
the  circulation  as  given  more  nearly  cor- 
rect, some  county  libraries  count  the  use 
of  supplementary  books.  Only  in  in- 
stances 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  elemen- 
tary public  school  and  church  libraries 
and  those  which  belong  to  private  indi- 
viduals and  are  not  open  to  the  public. 
They  are  arranged  alphabetically  by 
place  under  counties  and  counties  are 
arranged  alphabetically.  To  determine 
the  county  in  which  any  place  is  located 
see  list  following  these  introductory  para- 
graphs. This  list  includes  locations  of 
branch  and  station  libraries,  although 
they  are  listed  elsewhere  only  under  the 
main  library. 

The  following  are  special  depository 
libraries.
