To His Honor Patrick A. Collins, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

The Trustees of the Public Library of the City of Boston 
present the following report of its condition and activities 
for the year ending January 31, 190-1, being the fifty-second 
annual report. 

Dr. Thomas D wight, whose term expired on April 30, 
1908, oas reappointed a Trustee for five years, from May 1, 
1903. The Board was organized in jNIay, 1903, by the 
election of Mr. Solomon Lincoln as President and James 
De Normandie, D.D., as Vice-President. Miss Delia Jean 
Deery was re-elected Clerk of the Corporation. 

In accordance with the ordinance of the city directing that 
an Examining Committee shall be appointed annually by the 
Trustees to examine the Library and make report of its con- 
dition, the Trustees appointed the follownig persons for the 
present year : 



Charles S. Hamlin, 

Chairman^ 
Miss Mary Boyle O'Eeilly, 

Secretary, 
Mrs. John A. Bellows, 
Frank H. Briggs, 



John S. Concannon,

and their report which is herewith submitted has received 
tlie careful consideration of the Trustees. It represents the 
views and suggestions of a large committee who reside in all 
parts of the city, who look at the Library from a different 
standpoint from those who are daily engaged in its adminis- 
tration, and whose recommendations may be of real value to 
the Trustees. 

The reports of all the departments of the Library will be 
found joined to this report, giving a full account of the regu- 
lar operations of the Library during the present year, with 
all the information the public can desire to have in regard to 
the practical results and the needs of the Library, and it is 
only b}^ a careful examination of these that the public can 
understand the varied interests and the large and increasing 
place the Library fills in the literary and educational interests 
of the city. 

The Trustees invite special attention to the valuable and 
interesting report mIucIi the Librarian makes of the first year 
of his charge of the Library, and to the careful and wise 
views he presents in regard to each department, to fiction, to 
the Branches and Stations, to the work with the schools, and 
the information about purchase, circulation, and home use of 
books, newspapers, and manuscripts, the bulletins, the lec- 
tures, the examinations, and the gifts the library has 
received. 

The following figures exhibit the receipts and expendi- 
tures during the past year :

There lias been, during the year, a large increase in the 
stations and delivery agencies of the Library. There are 
now one hundred and eighty-five in place of one hundred 
and fifty-six last year, largely due, as w^ill be seen by the 
Librarian's report, to the work in the schools; but it is evi- 
dent that the very generous appropriation of the city cannot 
be equal to these multiplying demands to have stations so 
near together. It is not always an unminglecl literary interest 
which makes these petitions, and the early enthusiasm often 
dies away, while the expenses steadily grow. When a station 
does not maintain nor increase its usefulness it becomes a 
serious question whether it should not be merged with some 
neighboring one, where the rooms for children and for 
adult readers may be larger, the light better, the air purer, 
with a larger supply of books and journals and papers, 
making the whole much ampler in its Library accommoda- 
tions ; in other words, whether the number of small stations 
is not out of proportion to their usefulness. 

The number of volumes added to the Library during the 
year was 39,280, and the year before 34,635. The number 
of volumes in the Library at the end of the year was 848,884, 
so that we are now rapidly approaching the v^st total of one 
million volumes. 

Tlie Trustees have to record with great gratitude the 
receipt during the year of the legacy of one hundred thou- 
sand dollars from the estate of Mr. Robert C. Billings, an 
estimable Boston merchant, and also in addition the sum 
of eight thousand nine hundred and two dollars from his 
executor for the medallion bust of Mr. Billings by Mr. St. 
Gaudens, which is now in the court of the Library. The 
Trustees also record with gratitude the gift of five thousand 

*Thi8 balance is composed of certain items of trust fund income, accrued interest 
on deposit, etc., as shown in the Auditor's detailed statement, Appendix I., page 63. 



4 City Document Xo. 24. 

dollars from Mrs. Elizabeth Lewis of Boston, and they have 
established the same as a fund to be designated the Mrs. 
John A. Lewis Fund, the income of which shall be used to 
increase the collection known as the John A. Lewis Library. 
The Library needs these gifts to supplement the generosity of 
the city, and the Trustees would appeal to its friends to 
remember that the appropriation of the city can never be 
entirely equal to its effective w^ork. It needs, and will 
always need, other funds to procure at rare opportunities 
and without delay valuable collections of books, libraries of 
special students, works of historical or literary or artistic 
merit, which give to a Library great distinction. 

The Trustees feel that one purpose of the Library is to aid 
our rapidly increasing foreign population to find here good 
reading in the English language, which they are all so eager 
to understand, and that older persons, who can never become 
quite familiar with it, should have a fair proportion of l)ooks 
in their mother tongues. 

In the early days. Public Libraries were looked upon with 
much favor as helping young persons in every literary way 
after they had finished their school years. The aid the 
Library might give in all the work of the schools, or the 
encouragement and enjoyment it might afford almost before 
the school life begins, was not realized. The Trustees look 
with interest and satisfaction upon the opportunities the 
Library is offering to children — a field wliich is capable of 
great expansion and usefulness. 

While the Trustees would offer proper opportunity for 
entertainment and information to the superficial inquirer, 
they also regard it as of the greatest importance that stuJents 
in every branch of investigation, — scientific, pliiloso[)hical, 
historical, artistic, geographical, or in the dep;ntments of 
travel and biography — not provided for in other special 
libraries, should here have ample opportunities to pursue 
their work. Nature 5<ometimes bestows the rarest gifts upon 
children in the humblest homes, in even the lowest haunts of 
city life, and tlie Public Library should be a place where any 
such children may have developed those springs of genius 
which shall one day be the city's greatest {)ride and homu'; 
and this is the reason for buying books which the general 
public may never want, nor know of tiie beneficent opportunity 
they afford in making careful and valuable investigation. 

The Trustees also mark with much satisfaction the com- 
paratively few complaints — although these are constantly 
invited — made about the Library service. .V large amount 
of the work of the Librarv is carried on in rooms where. 



Library Department . 6 

quietly and ploddingly, faithful men and women pursue their 
tasks co)i amove, while others have to deal immediately with 
the public, meeting those who are sometimes exacting and 
impatient. Occasionally, no doubt, incidents occur, not 
without provocation upoi;i each side, which are very trying 
even to the most saintly natures ; but we desire and are 
determined that each year the entire service of the Library 
shall improve. 

The rapid increase in the number of libraries, and of the 
new fields opening to their usefulness, make them assume 
each j-ear the character of a profession, and of a very imjjor- 
tant profession, which in all its higher departments calls for 
better preparation to meet the constantly increasing demands 
of the public for information and guidance. 

The Trustees beg leave to return their grateful acknowl- 
edgment to the City Government for its liberal support of 
the Library, and yet it is plain that year by year the appro- 
priation must be increased in order to carrj^ on to advantage 
the work expected of so great an institution, and the City 
may reasonably require renewed efforts to make it worthy of 
such constant generosity. We are confident it will receive 
the intelligent and ungrudging support which has carried it 
on thus far, and the popular assurance will deepen that no 
part of the City's expenditure will give a richer return to 
the public, and the I^ibrarj^ will be accepted as a necessary 
instrument in the beginning and completion of our whole 
system of public education, and more and more justify the 
mottoes: "The Public Library of the City of Boston. Built 
by the People and dedicated to the Advancement of Learn- 
ing.'" " The Commonwealth requires the Education of the 
People as the Safeguard of Order and Liberty."

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Trustees : 

The report of the Librarian for the year ending January 
31, 1904, is hereby submitted. 

THE LIBRARY SYSTEM. 

The Library system includes : 

The Central Library on Copley Square. 

Ten branch libraries with permanent collections of books. 

Twenty-two delivery stations (of which thirteen are read- 
ing rooms), and, also, as places of deposit or delivery, thirty- 
eight engine houses, twenty city institutions, eighty-live 
public and ten parochial schools, making a total of one hun- 
dred and eighty-five agencies, as against one hundred and 
fifty-five a year ago. 

FINANCE. 

A record of the receipts and payments for the year is to be 
found in the statement of the Library Auditor (Appendix I.). 

BUILDINGS, EQlll'MENT, AND GENERAL 
ADMLXISTRATION. 

At the central building tlie boilers have been in daily 
operation, and tiie service has been found satisfactory. The 
motors have been operated regularly throughout the year, and 
are in good condition. The piping throughout is in proper 
order, but repairs will be required during the summer upon 
the four-inch main connected with the heating service. 
iNlinor repairs upon' boilers, air compressor, feed pumps, ele- 
vators, and elevator pumps have been made as needed, with- 
out materially interfering with the service. 

The refitting of the room and galleries occupied by the 
Statistical Department required the installation of sixty addi- 
tional electric lamps, and forty others have been placed else- 
where in the buildino;. 

No important changes in construction or in equi}mient 
have been found necessary. The ordinary routine repairs on 



Library Department. ^ 7 

the central building have been carried out and the branch 
buildings put in good order, as detailed hereinafter. 

The consumption of soft coal, necessary while the coal 
strike continued, was abandoned April 1. The deface- 
ment of the building externally from smoke was apparent, 
and the deposits of soot internally required much unusual 
cleaning. Although we are now using hard coal, neverthe- 
less the increasing amount of soft coal smoke in the city is a 
constant menace to the valuable collections in the possession 
of the Library. At times, e.speciall}^ when the windows are 
open communicating with the stacks and Special Libraries, 
great care is required to prevent damage from this source. 

The severe winter has entailed much greater expense than 
is usual for removing snow and ice at the central building 
and branches, and the roof gutters have required constant 
attention to prevent leaks. During the coming season 
repairs should be made upon the roof tiling at Copley 
square, and additional steam pipe provided through the 
gutters to prevent accumulations of ice therein. 

Works of Art. 

In April the Library received from the estate of the late 
Robert. Charles Billings of Boston the sum of $100,000 as a 
permanent fund for the purchase of books, and the additional 
sum of •?'8,902 to be used for the purchase of a bas-relief of 
Mr. Billings, Under the conditions attached to this gift a 
bronze bas-relief by Augustus St. Gaudens has been placed 
in the wall of the building on the north corridor of the 
court yard. 

The Library has accepted from donors representing ten 
States a portrait bust of the late Lucy Stone, in marble, by 
Anne Whitney. This has been placed opposite the alcove 
occupied by the Galatea Collection. 

Books Received. 

The total accessions for the 3-ear 1903-04 from all sources 
amount to 39,280 volumes as against 34,635 volumes for the 
year preceding. 

The work of selection for purchase has required the regu- 
lar examination of numerous periodicals and catalogues, the 
personal inspection of the more important current publica- 
tions in the English language, sent to the Library on approval 
as they come from the press, and the systematic reading of 
nearly GOO English and American sales catalogues. In this 
work the Librarian has had the continued assistance of Mr. 



8 City Document No. 24. 

James L. Whitney, as well as that of certain chiefs of depart- 
ments and members of the staff who devote particular atten- 
tion to specialties. Mr. Thomas S. Perry has been entrusted 
with the examination of current European Continental pub- 
lication lists and catalogues. The plan of submitting current 
fiction as received for examination, to be read by a volunteer 
committee not connected with the official staff, has been 
continued as usual. 

The conservative policy which the Library is now pursuing 
with respect to the purcliases of current fiction has restricted 
recent accessions in that class to works by authors of estab- 
lished reputation, or to volumes which have been before the 
public long enough to have demonstrated their merit. It 
should be borne in mind, however, that the Library already 
contains an extensive collection of English and foreign fiction, 
and selections for home reading have been facilitated by con- 
tinuing the open fiction desk in the Delivery Room, supplied 
with representative works, constantly changed. The publi- 
cation of a new finding list of English prose fiction has also 
been found very useful. A similar list of German fiction 
and a special list of historical fiction are in preparation. 
There is therefore no dearth of fiction in the Libraiy. easily 
accessible, much of which is superior, not only as literature 
but in general interest to the average reader, to the larger 
part of that recently published. 

It is not intended to underestimate the value of fiction as 
a department of literature, or the place of the novel in 
modern literary development. There are doubtless wiiters of 
fiction in our day who are worthy to rank with the recognized 
masters. It may be conceded, also, that it is one of the func- 
tions of literature to afford pure amusement to the reader, or, 
through the pathway of romance, to open to him a world 
apart from our strenuous modem life, and that this may be 
done by means of the novel as in no other way. Neverthe- 
less it remains tiue that out of a thousand volumes of fiction, 
more or less, that came from the press last year, there were 
few which were of more than ordinary merit. 

The demand for these books is stimulated by persistent 
advertising, and with few exceptions they are out of vogue 
within a short time after imblication. The Library should 
serve all classes of readers, but, although the demand for 
current fiction is insistent, due jn-oportion must be observed 
in tlie various classes, of which fiction is but one. 

The practical considerations, if there were no other — of 
providing for accessions upon our shelves, of keeping the 
catalogue within reasonable limits, financial limitations, the 



Library Department. 9 

constant increase in our fixed charges due to the natural 
growth and expansion of our work, — these necessarily restrict 
purchases within somewhat conservative limits. 

In the aggregate, 680 volumes of current fiction passed 
under consideration during the year. Of the entire num- 
ber not more than 200 were by authors who are at all 
widely known. Authors whose reputation is more than local 
represented a much smaller number. Unless much restricted, 
purchases in duplicate sufficient to supply the Central Library 
and branches, to say nothing of deposit work, would liave 
gone far toward exhausting our available funds. Out of the 
whole, 135 titles were accepted, many of which should be 
classed as fiction for young re'aders. 

Naturally the restriction of purchases of curient fiction 
has somewhat diminished the aggregate circulation, but, 
excluding English fiction drawn by adults, the circulation 
_ shows a slight gain. 

For example, in the direct circulation for home use from 
the Central Library there was a decline of 2.98 per cent in 
1903-0-i as compared with the preceding year, and the circula- 
tion of English fiction drawn by adults declined 11.51 per 
cent. On the other hand, the circulation of books other than 
English fiction drawn by adults increased 2.42 per cent, or 
nearly as much as the aggregate circulation declined. 

It is impossible to make a similar comparison with regard 
to the circulation through all of the agencies of the Library, 
since the recording system employed at the stations and at 
two of the branches does not permit the separation of adult 
fiction from the total. It may be done for eight of the 
branches, however, and at these the total circulation for home 
use declined 3.49 per cent in 1903-04 as compared with 
1902-03; the direct circulation of English fiction drawn 
by adults declined 9.22 percent, and, excluding English fic- 
tion drawn by adults, the circulation remained practically 
unchanged, increasing slightly, or from 359,101 to 359,703 
volumes. 

In combination, these statistics of direct circulation for home 
use from the Central Library and eight imj^ortant branches, 
covering in the aggregate 872,873 volumes in 1903-04 and 
902,785 in 1902-03," show a decline of 3.31 per cent in the 
total circulation in the later as compared with the former 
year; a decline of 10.01 per cent in the circulation of 
English fiction drawn by adults ; and a gain of nearly one 
per cent (0.95) in the circulation excluding English fiction 
drawn by adults. 

The reports from the Issue and Branch Departments, from 



10 City Document No. 24. 

which extracts hereinafter appear, present other interesting 
data relative to circulation, and especially relating to the 
use of fiction. 

A report prepared by Miss Theodosia E. Macurdy, Chief 
of the Ordering Department, contains the following as to the

REVIEW OF PURCHASES. 

In reviewing the accessions, the most noteworth}' purchases 
appear to be those of early American newspapers, together 
with broadsides and manuscripts of the same general period, 
i.e., the Eighteenth Century. Closely allied to these in 
importance and also in cost are works relating to the fine and 
industrial arts, while subjects especially strengtliened are 
psychology and philosophy, genealogy, electricity, the Shake- 
speare collection, the Artz collection of first editions, and 
the history and literature of the Philippine Islands. 

No very large collection of books on any one subject has 
been bought, with the exception perhaps of genealogy, and first 
editions of Nineteenth Century writers, but an unusually large 
quantity of rare tracts, published in New England and else- 
where, has been secured, some valuable sets of periodicals 
obtained, and a number of first and good editions of non- 
current books culled from the sales catalogues of book 
dealers. The selections from these lists of the older books 
gradually supply the missing volumes needed to complete 
our collection ; they are bought in most cases at a low price, 
and are the " aftermath " for which the Library could afford 
to wait. 

The general, or what may be called the routine accessions, 
consisting of books in all classes of literature currently issued

tions of the year, 

NEWSPAPERS.

tially covering the years 1739 to 1784 have been secured.

the j)eriod during which the Gazette was published by 
Franklin, and contain Washington's Embass}- to the Indians, 
Notes on the Expedition against Cape Breton, and notice

The body of the Monthly Bulletin consists as usual of the 
list of newly added books and of items of general library 
interest. Besides this have been published a description of 
Sargent's latest decoration (The Dogma of the Redemption), 
written by Sylvester Baxter, and reprinted from the "Boston 
Herald" (March, 1908); a Special Summer Finding List 
(June, 1903), which was reprinted in an edition of 1600 ; 
the Programme of Exhibition of Fine Arts at the Central 
Library and branches for 1903-04 (October, 1903) ; Titles 
suggested in connection with Free Lectures on Dante, given 
under the auspices of the Circolo Italiano (October, 1903) ; 
and a List of Books in the English Language on the Fine 
and Decorative Arts, suitable for small libraries, with prices 
added (December, 1903). The following lists of books for 
reading in connection with lectures before the Lowell Listi- 
tute, in each case suggested by the lecturer, and edited with- 
out cost to the Library, have also appeared :

shows a constant increase from year to year, its standard of 
efficiency has not been lowered.

publications. 



Distribution of Documents and Supplies. 

The Stock Department, in charge of Mr. George V. 
jNIooney, Custodian, has distributed 78,064 Library publica- 
tions during the year. The number of blank forms distrib- 
uted aggregates 2,142,339, including 1,748,400 call slips of 
various kinds. 

Registration. 

The total number of borrowers' cards outstanding and 
available for use, i.e., "live cards," so-called, on January 31, 
1904, was 70,138, as against 72,815 at the corresponding 
date in 1903. This shows a loss of 2,677, which may be 
proportionally distributed through the Central Library and 
branches and the delivery stations. This loss is partly due 



24 



City Document No. 24. 



to the failure to renew a considerable number of cards 
issued to children under 12 years of age in 1901. The 
amount of material handled by the Registration Department, 
and the number of persons whose needs have been attended 
to therein, have increased approximately fifteen per cent as 
compared with the preceding year, notwithstanding the loss 
in the aggregate number of cards outstanding. 

The usual tables prepared b}' Mr. John J. Keenan, Chief 
of the Registration Department, showing in detail the 
statistics of registration, may be found in Appendix VI.

Other details relating to the circulation in 1903-04 are as 
follows :

Department issue), 12 hours, March 7, 1903 3,338 

The English fiction drawn by adults coming to the Central 
Library, not applying through the branches or stations, for 
the year 1903-04, comprised 107,882 volumes, as against 
121,914 volumes, for the year 1902-03. 

The total number of volumes recorded as issued for hall 
use, chiefly in Bates Hall, 1903-04, is 3,007,006.* 

LOSS OF FICTION FROM' OPEN SHELVES. 

Owing to the unusual loSs of novels from the open shelves 
in 1902-03, a closer supervision was provided this year. 
During the months of June, July, and August, novels were 
kept on the screen near the desk of the Custodian of Bates 
Hall. Formerly they have been left in the case in the 
Delivery Room. 

The loss of fiction, according to Shelf Department records, 
is this year, 221, as against 349 volumes in 1902-03. 

SUMMER READING. 

During the summer the experiment was made of allowing 
certain books (not in active demand and not fiction) to be 
drawn and held for three months without incurring fines. 

A printed list of nearly a thousand titles of biographies, 
histories, travels, etc., was issued, but in the haste of com- 
pilation it was not feasible to make a carefully selected list. 
It may have been due to the fact that it lacked balance that 
it was not as largely used as might have been expected. 
INIore than one-half of the number of borrowers who availed 
themselves of the extended time preferred to make requests 

*Thls does not include the use of books from open shelves in Bates Hall, the num- 
ber of volumes so used being unrecorded. 



26 City Document No. 24. 

for other books than those included in the list. Each re- 
quest was examined to see if the volume was available 
for issue, and then submitted to the Librarian for approval. 
The issue was confined to books in the Central Library. The 
total number of volumes issued under this privilege was 364. 

The .Children's Rooms. 

The Children's Department at the Central Library has 
become one of the important agencies of our work. A report 
prepared by INIiss Alice M. Jordan, Custodian, presents the 
following statistics and other details covering the operations 
of the year : 

ISSUE. 

The number of books issued to applicants in the Children's 
Department during the past year was 57,727 as against 
63,993 for the year previous. The number of books issued 
through the branches from the Children's Department has 
increased from 12,797 in 1902 to 13,889, the highest figure 
yet reached by daily issue to the branches. It is interesting 
to note that during the months of July and August no fall- 
ing off is apparent from year to year. 

BRANCH REQUESTS. 

The decrease in the personal applications here is undoubt- 
edly due to the expansion of the Branch and deposit system. 
The Children's Department at the Central Library is no 
longer unique in providing accommodations for children — a 
fact which in tlie early days swelled tl)e circulation and 
crowded the rooms. It is, so far as provision of books is 
concerned, only one in a large number of agencies for juvenile 
supply. 

DEPOSITS. 

So long as books of all kinds are provided by deposit to 
schools, especially to those schools which are near the 
Librar}^ from which the latter naturally draws its youthful 
clientele, there is an additional cause for decrease in circula- 
tion from the Children's Department. Cooperation between 
the Branch and Children's Departments exists, however, and 
is to be desired. 

Four collections have this 3'ear been sent from the Chil- 
dren's Room to Home Library groups under the supervision 
of the Children's Aid Society. A new experiment is here 
involved — one for which this department is responsible and 



Library Department. 27 

which is possible only to a limited degree and under certain 
definite conditions. Requests for these deposits were re- 
ceived from the older circles which had read and outgrown 
the extremely juvenile books furnished by the Children's 
Aid Society. Three clubs of girls were supplied twenty 
books each, the collection to be kept at the home of one of 
the members and opened only by the visitor, once a week. 
The other group to which books were sent is a self-govern- 
ing club of boys — drivers, messengers, etc., working during 
the day and meeting nightly in their own club rooms. By 
no other method would the Library reach them. 

Another established practice, easier to comply with since 
its employment is required only in the dull summer season, 
is that of sending books to the vacation schools and play- 
grounds. Last year eight collections of twenty books each 
were thus sent. 

WORK OF THE CHILDREN'S DEPARTMENT IN CONNECTION 
WITH SCHOOLS. 

In the face of these problems of circulation it is a gratifica- 
tion to feel that never has the Library touched a greater 
number of children than during the* past year — touched in 
a way that is likely to make a more lasting, impression than 
the mere drawing of books from the Children's Rooms. 
Twelve hundred and fifty pupils have listened to instruction 
upon the Library and its use in 1903. These lessons have 
taken the form of a teaching exercise, lasting forty or fifty 
minutes, and at different times the following subjects were 
considered : Arrangement of the Library ; How to take out 
books ; Use and peculiarities of the card catalogues ; Ele- 
mentary reference books and how to use them. One class, 
which by previous visits here, had already received this 
instruction was given simple advice on what and how to 
read . 

Of the classes which have thus visited this building, the 
larger numbers have come from the two upper grades 
of tlie grammar schools in different parts of the city. 
Two classes from the normal school have also been present, 
and from these lessons to future teachers far-reaching 
consequences may reasonably be expected, since much of 
the guidance in the use of books belongs properly to the 
teacher. Occasionally a difficulty arises because of the great 
distance from which certain schools must come in order to 
reach the Library. In one case this was met by going to the 
school in Dorchester and giving practically the same exercise 



28 City Document No. 24. 

to a class of 120. Such an arrangement would be gladly- 
accepted by not a few others, but would destroy one of the 
prime objects in the whole plan, that of bringing children to 
the Library itself. Progress has been noticed not only by^ a 
batter unclerstanding of the use of books and catalogue by 
the children, but by a wider knowledge of the children on 
the part of the Custodian, and an added power to compre- 
hend their needs and to help in their school work. 

FINDING LIST OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS. 

In 1901 a reprint of the selected list of juvenile books 
was made to supply a demand for a printed catalogue of 
children's books. This list is now rendered valueless by the 
changes and additions of recent years. Work on a new list 
has been confined to the Children's Department, and has been 
subject to unavoidable delays. It is, however, now ready for 
the Editor. 

GIFTS TO THE CHILDREN'S ROOMS. 

It has been a pleasure during the year to see the interest 
felt in this department as evinced by the gifts which it has 
received from v.arious friends. In February two casts were 
given by^ Miss Elizabeth Thacher of Roxbury, figures from 
the Luca della Robbia Singing Gallery. Miss Thacher was 
one of the ladies who kept the room bright with flowering 
plants last winter, and wlio has given others this year. We 
are also indebted for plants to Mrs. John E. Hudson, Miss 
Emily Osgood, Mrs. Francis Greene and ^liss lieal. 

PICTURE BULLETINS. 

No large exhibits have been held, but the display of 
picture bulletins has continued. While comparatively little 
labor has been thns expended, it has been possible to provide 
a sufficient number of these bulletins to loan to stations 
when wanted. 

Bates Hall. 

It is impossible to indicate the amount and character of the 
work performed in Bates Hall by anv presentation of 
statistics. It is the principal reading and reference room of 
the Library and large numbers are daily supplied there with 
books from the stacks or from the open shelves in the hall 
itself. The number of volumes directly accessible to readers 



Library Department. 29 

from the open shelves increases constantly, and these are 
extensively used. A selected collection of the new accessions 
is each week placed upon the screen in the catalogue room. 
The reference shelves have suffered a loss of 49 volumes 
during the year, while but 43 volumes have disappeared from 
the screen. This shows a considerable diminution in losses 
as compared with previous years. 

Mr. Oscar A. Bierstadt, the Custodian, reports as follows 
upon certain phases of his work that are not perhaps so 
obvious, as that relating to the distribution of books to 
readers : 

The attendants in the catalogue room devote part of every 
morning to looking up shelf numbers for readers' requests 
from the branch libiaries * * * Man}' letters asking 
for information have been referred to this department. All 
large libraries receive such inquiries in abundance * * * 
The re-arrangement of the reference books in Bates Hall 
may be regarded as virtually finished. One or two sections 
need some slight replenishment, and as new reference works 
are bought they must be given a place on. these shelves so 
that individual changes will never end. The reference 
collection is believed now to be second to none in the 
country. 

Special Libraries. 

The following statements are taken from the report of 
Mr. Otto Fleischner, in charge of the Special Libraries : 

ACCESSIONS. 

During the year, 3,564 volumes were added, distributed 
as follows : 

Vols. 

Fine Arts , . 924 

Industrial Arts 583 

Music, General Collection 472 

Music, Brown Library 309 

Special Libraries 992 

U. S. Documents 190 

British Documents 94 

Total 3,564 

There are now located on the Special Libraries floor, 
111,428 volumes. This number includes all the State and 
City documents which were transferred during the year to 
relieve the stacks, but does not include the collection of 
maps and the Tosti engravings. 



30 City Document No. 24. 



PHOTOGRAPHS. 

The sum of ^258.44 has been expended for the purchase 
of 647 photographs. There are now in the collection 15,818 
photographs, 424 colored photographs, and 6,250 process 
pictures. 

The catalogue of the photographs, by artists, is kept up to 
date, but as yet no time has been found to make a catalogue 
by subjects. 

The shelf and accession list of photographs on cards has 
been completed during the year, and that for the process 
pictures is about half completed. 

CIRCULATION. 

There were 13,820 volumes issued for home use from the 
Fine Arts Department during the year. The recorded hall 
use is 37,800 volumes. This does not show the complete 
use of the books in this department : for example, the 
system of laying out collections for classes from the different 
art schools cannot be represented by statistics. Such collec- 
tions remain on the tables for days and sometimes for weeks 
and frequently the same volume is used by a hundred pupils 
in succession while only a single entry of use may be 
recorded. The custom of laying out books for special occa- 
sions has been continued. 

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND. 

The collection of books and curient periodicals has been 
kept on the shelves and tables in the south gallery for two 
years for the accommodation of the adult blind ; but there is 
practically no use made of this collection. 

THE BARTON-TICKNOR ROOM. 

During the past year the card catalogues in the Barton- 
Ticknor Room have been re-arranged. The main catalogue 
was in four sections formerly ; these have been combined so 
that the cards are now arranged under one alphabet. The 
new case doubles the numlier of drawers, and gives room for 
the future growth of the catalogutj. The map catalogue has 
been put into a larger case, and brought out into the desk 
room. The cards have been punched and fastened with 
rods. 

The number of books issued for hall use during the year 
was 12,053 ; the number of maps, 943. 



Library Department. 31 

The use of stack books in the Barton-Ticknor Room is 
increasing. A record for fifty weeks gives a total of 7,945, 
with a weekly average of 158. Many of these books are 
reserved on the tables for readers who come in day after day. 
According to a record taken twice each week the average 
number of books reserved has been 195, the smallest number 
reserved at any one time being 20 (June 20, 1908), the 
largest 342 (March 7, 1903). 

ALLEN A. BIIOWN LIBRARY. 

The statistics for the Music Room are briefly as follows : 

Volumes added 309 

Headings written on 878 packages (about 35,000 cards). 

Cards filed 17,680 

Volumes catalogued in the Music Room .... 112 

A slight decrease in the number of books issued is probably 
due to the improvement in the catalogue, which makes it 
possible for applicants to find exactly what they want much 
more readily. The effort to push the catalogue still nearer 
com.pletion has occupied the greater part of the year's time, 
and a month or two more will bring it to an end. In addi- 
tion, the entire index to Mr. Brown's collection of magazine 
articles (about 2,500 cards) has been copied on large cards 
and revised so as to be uniform with the index to the current 
periodicals. Indexes have been supplied to four volumes of 
clippings and programmes. 

The additions during the year have been chiefly prompted 
by a desire to keep the Library abreast of musical progress 
here and in Europe. Two scores by American composers — 
Converse's " Festival of Pan" and Parker's " Hora Novis- 
sima " — and Dohnany's Symphony in D minor, Debressy's 
"• La demoiselle elue," and Elgar's " Dream of Gerontius " 
are worthy of mention. The addition of a volume of pro- 
grammes of concerts given by Theodore Thomas in Boston, 
practically completes a series of programmes of orchestral 
concerts in this city from 1833 to the present time. 

Lectures. 

The following lectures have been given in the Lecture 
Hall: 

1903. 

March 6. " The Heart of the Rockies," by Mr. Arthur K. Peck. Illus-

Department of Documents and Statistics. 

The space allotted to this Department has been much in- 
creased by the opening of the new Patent Room, noted in the 
report last year. Under the restrictions which formerly 
existed, order, system, and effective management were im- 
possible. Since the change, however, it has been possible to 
more fully meet the needs of those wiio, in constantly increas- 
ing numbers, use this special collection. Students and 
writers on subjects connected with economics and sociology, 
persons seeking commercial, financial, and historical data, 
attendants at colleges and schools who have in preparation 
theses or essays, find here material assistance in their work. 

The report of Mr. James L. Wliitney, the Chief of this 
Department, contains the following: 

During the year 1,080 volumes have been added as new 
accessions or by transfer from other departn)ents of the 
Library. The gifts through the American Statistical Asso- 
ciation (whose library, placed in our custody, formed part of 
the original collection) numbered 924 volumes and about 
2,000 parts. The entire collection, exclusive of the Con- 
gressional documents of the United States, and the Parlia- 
mentary documents of Great Britain, now numbers nearly 
11,000 volumes. To bring the collection into order, and 
make it in its new setting as accessible and helpful as 
possible, has been the desire of those in charge. 



LiBRAEY Department. 33 

Manuscripts. 

The Chief of the Department of Documents and Statistics, 
Mr. Whitney, has custody of the general collection of manu 
scripts. As to the more important documents received dur" 
ing the year, he reports as follows : 

Prominent among the historical documents received is a 
collection of manuscripts, once in -the possession of the 
Hancock family, presented to this Library by the executors 
of the will of the late Alfred T. Turner. These papers 
number about seventy-five, and include letters written by 
John Hancock, or to him, and other contemporary papers. 
With these may be mentioned numerous letters from Gov- 
ernor Shirley, and other prominent persons in the early 
history of New England, including a letter from Governor 
Bellomont to Captain Kidd, inviting him to come to Boston, 
and promising to intercede with the King for his pardon. 

In the "Life and correspondence of Henry Ingersoll 
Bowditch, by his son," is an account of George Latimer, who 
was held in Leverett-street jail in Boston, as an alleged fugitive 
slave, and of the efforts of Dr. Bowditch and others in his 
behalf. The documents issued at this time, in manuscript 
and in print, were preserved by Dr. l^owditch, and regarded 
by him as very significant. His son. Dr. Vincent Y. Bow- 
ditch, has given them to this Library. 

From Miss Louise Imogen Guiney have been received 
copies, made from the Hardwicke manuscripts, of unpub- 
lished papers of Robert Emmet, in regard to the insurrection 
planned at Dublin, July 23, 1803. 

A brief list of the manuscript accessions acquired by pur- 
chase is as follows : 

Six manuscript journals, of some 175 pages each, kept by 
William Russell while a prisoner of war in Mill Prison, 
Plymouth, England, 1779 to 1782. (Russell was Sergeant- 
Major of the Massachusetts State Train of Artillery, raised for 
the defence of Boston, under the command of Col. Thomas 
Crafts and Paul Revere in 1777.) 

Lieutenant-Governor Hutchinson's Reply to the Committee 
of fifteen gentlemen chosen in Town Meeting the morning 
after the Massacre, to request him to issue his orders for 
the immediate withdrawal of the troops. Manuscript letter 
signed by T. Hutchinson, dated Council Chamber, 6 March, 
1770. 

Letter from Richard Gridley to General Washington, dated 
Boston, December, 1776, on the subject of the fortifications 
around Boston. 



34 City Document No. 24. 

Twenty-four official letters, dated 1774 to 1776, signed by 
Governor Shirley. 

Autograph letter, signed, of Barlow Trecothick to the 
Selectmen of Boston, May 10, 1770. 

Manuscript note-book kept by William Russell at the 
home of Mr. Easterbrook in Ashburton, County of Devon- 
shire, in England. Begun May 2, 1813. Contains also 
" Account of provisions expended on board the Cartel-Brig 
Ann Maria on her passage from Dartmouth to America with 
51 prisoners." 

The orderly book of Nathan Alden of Roxbury, 1776. 

Journals and records of the monthly meetings of the Bos- 
ton Artists' Association from the beginning in 1841 to 1851. 
2 vols. 

Original manuscript instructions from the Department of 
State of the Confederacy to Wm. L. Yancey, Pierce A. Ross 
and A. Dudley iSIann, Commissioners to Great Britain, 
France, Russia and lielgium. Signed by Robt. Toombs. 

Letters of ^Margaret Fuller to James Nathan, 1844-46, 
for the Galatea Collection. 

It may be well to point out that the Library now contains 
the following manuscrij)ts : 

I. The Prince Collection, which was bequeathed by the 
Rev. Thomas Prince to the Old South Church, and is now 
deposited in this T^ibrary. An analysis of these manusciipts 
is in the published Catalogue of the Prince Library. 

IL The Chamberlain Collection, bequeathed to this Li- 
brary by the Honorable ]\Iellen Chamberlain, its former Libra- 
rian. A description of these manuscripts has been published, 
and there is also an author index to a part of them and fuller 
descriptions of the remainder.. 

IIL In the Allen A. Brown I^ibrary of Music are tran- 
scripts of many manuscript orchestral scores of the great 
composers. The catalogue of these is nearl}^ complete. 

IV. Most of the manuscripts added to the general collec- 
tions of the Library are enteied in the card catalogue in 
Bates Hall, under the name of the author, the subject, and 
the heading "Manuscripts in this Libraiy." Certain special 
collections, more recently received, such as the anti-slavery 
manuscripts, given by the Garrison family and others, are 
being arranged and bound. 

The manuscripts in the Library can l)e consulted for 
serious study under necessary restrictions.

The Patent Room. 

The convenience of the new Patent Room is manifest, and 
apparently appreciated by those who use it. The lighting is 
excellent, and the location of the room apart from the more 
frequented parts of the building insures quiet. 

The catalogue of the patent collection is in process, and, it 
is expected, will be entirely revised and rewritten within the 
coming j^ear. Trade catalogues, which are found of use in 
connection with the patent collection, of which we have but 
few at present, have been arranged and temporarily cata- 
logued. It is proposed to increase the number gradually, 
and to index them regula^l3^ 

The number of volumes in the Patent Room February 1, 
1904, was 9,740. During the year the number of books con- 
sulted was 47,659, the number of visitors being 2,937. 

Periodicals. 

No part of the Library is more constantly used than the 
Periodical Room, and the attendance increases from year to 
year. The following statement permits a comparison between 
the two latest years : 

Attendance at

The number of bound volumes consulted during the day 
for each of the two years compared was, 1903-04, 25,651; 
1902-03, 23,557. The number consulted during the even- 
ing and Sunday, 1903-04, 6,769 ; 1902-03, 6,921.- The use 
of newly published, i.e., current periodicals is not registered. 
The number of unbound back numbers consulted during the 
day aggregates 17,796 for the year, and the number con- 
sulted in the evening and upon Sunday 10,269. 

Newspapers. 

As in the Periodical Room, a large attendance is usual in 
the Newspaper Reading Room, and on Sundays this room is 
frequently too crowded. To a certain extent the adjacent 
Periodical Room is used on such occasions. The number of 
papers represented in the room February 1, 1903, was 323.

The Branch System. 

The report of j\Ir. Langdon L. Ward, the Supervisor of 
Branches and Stations, contains the following statement as 
to the activities of the Branch system : 

The total recorded circulation of the branch system, includ- 
ing the branch libraries and the stations, is 1,158,588 
volumes. This represents a loss as compared with the pre- 
ceding year of one and four-tenths per cent. 

BRANCH libraries. 

The total recorded circulation of the branch libraries this 
year, 742,262 volumes, is one and tliree-tentlis per cent less 
than shown in the year preceding. The East Boston, South 
Boston, and West End Branches, however, have gained. The 
loss has been chiefl}^ in the circulation of fiction for adults, 
where we should expect to find it. The following compari- 
son of the average percentages of fiction and non-fiction cir- 
culated from eight branches in two successive years is inter- 
esting : 

i;i03-04. 190-2-03. 

Fiction for adults 38.0 41.8 

Non-fiction for adults 20.3 19.3 

Fiction for juvenile readers .... 29.2 27.6 

Non-fution for juvenile readers . . .11.6 11.3 

Total circulation 100.0 100.0 

The average percentage of fiction, as a whole, is 68^^ as 
against 69^'^ a year ago ; and the percentage of fiction 
for adults only is 38^^^ as against 41^*'^^ a year ago. 

It is a matter of encouragement that the loss in the recorded 
home use of the branches has been so slight. The attempt 
to furnish adult readers witli standard fiction and as much 
attractive non-fiction as possible seems to have had some 
success. The attention given to the school children, also, is 
a factor in increasing the use of the branches. 



Library Department. 37 

But, on the other hand, the probable influence of deposits 
at the schools in decreasing the total circulation should be 
noted. For while such deposits call attention to the Library 
and bring children to it, the fact must be taken into account 
that the books themselves would have had a much greater 
recorded use if they had remained on the shelves of the 
branch than they receive under the conservative method of 
computing the school use. Thus, one custodian, by careful 
experiment in the case of certain popular books of which 
there were copies both at the schools and at the branch, found 
that there was a recorded use of such books at the branch 
of 1,500 for a definite period, as against 318 at the schools. 

DEPOSIT WORK. 

To distribute collections of books to the institutions of 
their districts, chiefly to the schools, is now as legitimate a 
function of the branches as to distribute books to individ- 
uals. Eighty-one different places have been supplied this 
year. Fifty-seven schools are regularly provided for by the 
branches as against 40 last year. The total number of vol- 
umes sent on deposit for the year is 15,187 as against 
11,107 in the year 1902. 

Several schools which were once supplied from the Cen- 
tral Library have been assigned to branches, leaving the 
former more free to supply schools in the heart of the city 
and those situated near reading rooms, and to meet the calls 
for special deposits which the branches cannot farnish. 
There are now several districts in the city in which every 
grammar and high school is supplied by the branch. 

BRANCH QUESTIONS. 

The method of instruction of employees by means of 
papers of questions on library science as applied to the 
branches of this Library was fully described in the last annual 
report of the department. Several additional lists of questions 
and answers have been issued during the year. When an 
examination in Grade B for employees was recently given, a 
part of the paper was based on the branch questions which 
had been issued up tp that time. The result in most cases 
showed that the questions had been thoroughly studied. 

PICTURE BULLETINS AND PICTURES. 

The making of picture bulletins and collections of 
mounted pictures has gone on steadily at certain branches, 



38 City Docujment Xo. 24. 

and there has been established this year a system for lending- 
these bulletins and pictures among the branches and stations, 
by which the reading rooms particularly will profit. 

The monthly exhibits of pictures from the Special Libra- 
ries have continued to be of great use at the branches and 
reading rooms. The colored photographs are especially 
popular. 

One hundred and fifty -nine portfolios of pictures have 
been sent to public schools, most of them in response to 
applications through the branches and stations. 

BOOKS. 

The new books purchased for the branches number 6,007 
volumes as against 4,559 volumes in 1902. There were 
3,513 volumes of replacements, and in the previous year 
only 2,719 volumes. The number of volumes of current 
fiction bought was 972, representing 90 titles, as compared 
with 711 volumes, with 63 titles, in 1902-1903. 

HOURS. 

The branches were closed at 6 P.M. this year from July 
15 to August 31 only, instead of from July 1 to September 
14. The use from 6 to 8 P.M. was good in June, and, 
though not large in July and August, seemed sufficient to 
justify the extension of hours, and perhaps further extension. 

Seven branches were opened on Sunday for the winter, 
beginning with November as usual. The hours are from 
2 to 9 P.M. instead of from 2 to 10 P.M. as in former years. 
The Sunday use of the branches has been more satisfactory 
during the last three months of the year than during the 
first three. But while the number of books issued has 
everywhere increased, the percentage of adults who attend 
shows a substantial decrease at four branches. In conse- 
quence of this, and in order to encourage the Sunday use of 
the branches by adults, children under twelve years of age 
are hereafter to be entirely excluded on Sundays. 

By a recent decision, children under twelve years of age 
are also excluded after 7 P.]\I. every day from the branches 
and stations. 

REPAIRS AND I]\rPROVEMENTS. 

The interior of the Brighton Branch has been repainted 
above the basement, tlie tin roof repKaced by a new one, the 
brick and stone work repointed, and the external wood work 



Library Department. 39 

repainted. At the West End Branch the ceih'ng has been 
whitened and the paint and woodwork cleaned throughout 
the interior. The external woodwork also has been repainted 
and the roof thoroughly repaired. The building of the West 
Roxbury Branch has been repainted by the Public Buildings 
Department, and outside shutters placed on the windows as 
a protection against fire. The same department has also 
laid a granolithic walk from the street to the entrance of 
Curtis Hall, where the Jamaica Plain Branch has its 
quarters. 

Ventilators of uniform pattern have been placed in several 
branches, and have proved to be of great service. 

The Children's Room at the South Boston Branch has 
been enlarged and surrounded by a higher fence. A lunch 
room for the employees has been made by means of 
partitions. 

At the Dorchester and East Boston Branches the gas 
fixtures have been largely replaced by new ones, and addi- 
tions made. Additions have been made to the steam- 
heating apparatus at East Boston. 

MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVITIES. 

The registrations at the branches this year are naturally 
fewer, since the thorough visitations to the schools during 
the past' two years. 

Reference work with children increases in importance at 
the branches, with a better supply of juvenile books and 
greater interest in the Library on the part of the teachers. 

THE BRANCH DEPARTMENT AND THE SCHOOLS. 

The work of the branch department with the schools has 
been so fully described in previous reports that there remains 
little to note this year except its greatly increased volume. 
All the former activities have been continued. 

There have been sent on deposit to the public schools 
during the past year from the Central Library and the 
branches 18,082 volumes, as against 12,261 volumes in 
1902. There is, therefore, an increase of 4:1 per cent, which 
represents not only a much larger number of teachers who 
have been supplied but a greater frequency of exchange. 

Though some questions remain to be settled, and many 
improvements to be made, the present system seems satisfac- 
tory to the teachers. Under it they receive freely, so far as 
the resources of the Library permit, just what they need for 
their classes, with only so much formality as the safety of 



40 City Document No. 24. 

the books requires. When, as is often the case, the request 
from a teacher is general in its nature, the books are chosen 
by the custodian. To avoid burdening the teachers the use 
of the books is estimated, but well within the limit of actual 
use as determined by various tests. 

STATIONS. 

The total circulation of the stations, schools, and institu- 
tions is 419,523 volumes, which is one and six-tenths per 
cent less than the number of volumes circulated in 1902. 
The reading rooms A, B, C, F, and U, and the shop stations 
M and Q show a gain. No change has taken place during 
the year in the number or location of the shop stations. 

SERVICE STATIONS. 

A new reading room. Station 22, the North Street Reading 
Room, was opened on June 9 at the North End, in a large 
room of the Guild House of St. Charles Borromeo. The 
use of the room, together with light, heat, and service, was 
given, through the agency of the Rev. Roberto Biasotti, 
rector of the Italian Church of the Sacred Heart, by the 
Society of St. ^Nlark. The placards announcing the opening 
were printed in Italian as well as English. The reading 
room has a small permanent collection of Italian books and a 
considerable deposit of Italian fiction, as well as books in 
English. Besides the usual periodicals, four Italian maga- 
zines and two Italian newspapers are received regularly. 
The station is open every day from 1 P.M. to 6 P.M., and 
on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 7 P.M. to 9 
P.M. With the establishment of this reading room the 
number of service stations becomes fourteen. It should also 
be noted that Station 22 is the sixth cooperative station of 
the Library, the others being Stations C, N, S, U, and W. 
The use of the station by adults, though not so great as 
could be wished, seems to be increasing. The total circula- 
tion for the month of January was 1,120 volumes, which 
was more than that of Stations A, D, H, L, ]\I, Y, and Z 
for the same month. 

The increase of the service stations in numbers, equip- 
ment, and functions has been fully noticed in the recent 
annual reports of this department. Since 1897, no shop 
station has been established, while two shop stations have 
been converted into reading rooms and one abolished. But it 
is noteworthy that no new station since 1897 has been estab- 



Library Departivient. 41 

lished, nor any station changed in essential character, with- 
out either municipal or private cooperation with the Library 
in the matter of expense. 

It is with municipal aid that the next reading room is 
likely to be opened, at Upham's Corner, where the city has 
provided a large room for the Library in the new municipal 
building on Columbia road. The furniture asked for has 
been already installed, but a considerable collection of books 
will be needed. 

Plans have been drawn for a city building at Codman 
square, Dorchester, for which an appropriation of $35,000 is 
available, and in which rooms are to be provided for the 
Library. The books of the permanent collection of Station B, 
the Roslindale Reading Room, now number nearly 3,000 
volumes. Its circulation for the year is over 43,000 volumes. 
The reading room has had a considerable amount of new 
shelving this year. A regular assistant has been appointed. 
The hours have been extended, so that the station is open 
continuously from 2 to 9 P.M. The charging system which 
is in use in the branches has been installed. 

At the other large reading rooms, Mt. Bowdoin, Broadway 
Extension, and Roxbury Crossing, conditions in general are 
excellent. 

At Station W, by meetings held under the auspices of the 
Industrial School, and by a deposit of books on sociological 
subjects, placed in the reading room for adults, the interest 
of the teachers and educators of the district has been much 
increased. The Library sent a deposit of books to be used 
in connection with Mr. Copeland's lectures on English litera- 
ture at the Hancock School. Several Italian newspapers 
have been sent regularly of late from the Central Library. 
A continued effort has been made to attract adults, and with 
some success. 

Owing to the pressing needs of the branches and of the 
deposit collection, the service stations have received as addi- 
tions to their permanent collections only 1,519 volumes this 
year as against 1,890 volumes in 1902. But Stations B and 
P have had more than last year, and Station F has had 94 
volumes. The smaller reading rooms have already, however, 
very serviceable collections of reference books, though these 
need to be enlarged. 

There are missing from the permanent collections of the 
service stations 109 volumes, as against 59 in 1902 ; from 
the deposit books, Central and branch, 101 volumes, as 
against 173 volumes in 1902. A large number of the 
missino: books are from Stations F and P. 



42 City. Document No. 24. 

The monthly meetings of custodians, useful as a means of 
instruction, have been continued. The Branch Questions 
and Answers are sent to all custodians of service stations. 

Records of the property of the Library at each service sta- 
tion have been made by the custodians and verified by the 
Central Library records. 

In the course of a fire, the walls and ceilings of Station D 
were damaged by water. They have since been re-tinted by 
the trustees of the building. The work of the station was 
only partially interrupted for two or three days. 

OTHER AGENCIES. 

The Franklin Park Reading Room has a recorded circula- 
tion for the year of nearly 5,000 volumes, if the home use of 
the periodicals furnished by the Park Commissioners be 
included with that of the books of the Library. This is 
about two-thirds of the circulation of the smallest station of 
the Library system, yet the use of the -reading room may be 
estimated to be about double what it was in the first months. 
The lack of artificial light, which compels early closing in 
winter, is a drawback. It is chiefly adults who use the read- 
ing room. The deposit of Library books has been increased 
to 500 volumes, and includes a small set of reference books 
which were bought specially for this purpose in February 
last. The reading room was rearranged and made more con- 
venient last June by the Park Commissioners, in consulta- 
tion with the Library. They still provide the means for a 
delivery from the Central Library three times a week. 

Two engine-houses have been added to our list, and two 
Home Libraries, on account of exceptional conditions, are 
being supplied for the first time. 

The Anna Ticknor Library furnishes, in part at least, the 
books for several institutions, among them tlie A\''ells Memo- 
rial Institute and the People's Institute. 

A deposit of 500 volumes has been sent to the Plant Shoe 
Factory, and they have circulated well among the 2,700 em- 
ployees. Mr. Plant has bought duplicate copies of many of 
the books. The manager aims to apply commercial methods 
to the circulation of books, and advertises them in various 
ingenious ways. To the Social Club for the employees at 
Messrs. Filene's store, the Library has sent 125 volumes. 
At the last exchange the social secretary reported that con- 
siderable interest had been shown in tlie books. Both the 
above deposits are experiments. In each case the conditions 
are unusual and very interesting. 



Library Department. 43 



DEPOSIT WORK. 



There have been sent out on deposit from the Central 
Library through this department during the past year, 35,727 
volumes, as against 31,382 volumes in 1902, the gain 
being 14 per cent. Forty-five per cent of these books 
were fiction, while last year the percentage was 46. The 
additions to the deposit collection number 4,346 volumes, as 
against 5,618 last year. But as the Anna Ticknor Collection 
is included in the latter number, the additions for specific 
needs are much greater this year. The net gain of the 
deposit collection is 3,200 volumes, 1,146 volumes having 
been condemned. Books devoted to such uses as these 
naturally wear out very fast. The collection now consists 
of 24,421 volumes, but is not yet adequate to the work 
which it performs. All but two volumes were accounted for 
at the shelf reading, and one of these this department has no 
record of having received. The shelf reading of the Anna 
Ticknor Collection has not yet taken place. This collection 
has proved valuable and has a moderate use. Probably 
from 800 to 1,000 of its volumes are out on deposit at 
present. 

The deposit work responds more readily to initiative and 
guidance than the daily issue, and hence steadily progresses. 
It is more satisfactory than last year, both in the frequency 
and nature of the requests received and in our ability to 
meet them. The reference work done by some of the assist- 
ants is of a high order. 

THE DAILY ISSUE. 

The daily issue to the branches and stations from the 
Central Library amounts this year to 100,538 volumes, and 
represents a loss of seven and three-tenths per cent. For 
the last four months, however, the issue shows an average 
increase of four per cent a month. The percentage of un- 
successful cards is forty-six and six tenths, the same as that 
of last year. The loss has been due, therefore, to decreased 
applications. 

The decrease aggregates 8,016 volumes, classified as 
follows : 

Fiction for juvenile readers 3,250 

Non-fiction for juvenile readers 2,439 

Fiction for adults 737 

Non-fiction for adults 1,590 

The proportions of fiction and non-fiction in the books 
issued are as follows :

Total circulation 100.0 100.0 

The decrease is therefore chiefly in the books for juvenile 
readers, both fiction and non-fiction. The deposits at the 
schools may partly account for this, and the lack of a printed 
uvenile list has had an important influence. But the disap- 
pointments caused by lack of sufficient copies at the Central 
Library must not be overlooked. It should not l)e forgotten 
that the branches play a very small part in the daily issue, the 
overwhelming majority of applications coming from stations 
where there is a very small supply of books of any class. 
This makes the claim of borrowers upon the Central Library 
a strong one. 

A systematic examination into the unsuccessful applica- 
tions was begun last May and continued from month to 
month, with the purpose of supplying deficiencies by recom- 
mending duplicates, at least of the non-fiction, of good qual- 
ity which was most in demand. Many additional copies of 
such books, including juveniles, were recommended and 
bought. Possibly this action may have had a small part in 
the recent increase of the issue. It is almost certain that 
the new English Prose Fiction List has had an influence by 
encouraging accurate applications for books which could be 
furnished. 

It is interesting to note that while the circulation of 
fiction for adults has declined both absolutely and relatively 
at the branches, in the issue from the large Central collec- 
tion, by means of written applications, it has gained relatively, 
and declined very little absolutely.

DISTRIBUTION OF PERIODICALS. 

Twenty-one thousand and twenty-five copies of periodicals 
have been distributed as usual to city institutions as against 
20,325 copies in 1902. 

COST OF BRANCHES AND STATIONS. 

The aggregate expense of the branches for the year is 

1,745.30, an increase of $5,266.52 as compared with the 
preceding year. The principal items of increase are : Admin- 
istration, $1,134.53 ; books and periodicals, $2,106.21 ; fuel, 
$2,992.09 ; repairs, $2,434.61. The increase in expense of 
administration, comprising the amount paid for services, is 
unavoidable with the increase in the demands of the service ; 
and the expenditure for books and periodicals justifies itself 
in the legitimate enlargement of the collection and in fact 
is not greatly larger than in 1901. The unprecedented 
increase in the amount spent for fuel is due not only to the 
high price of coal but to the fact that no large purchases 
were made in the preceding year. The increase in the expen- 
diture for repairs is due largely to extensive repairs carried 
out at the Brighton and West End Branches. The amount 
expended for furniture shows a decrease of $1,119.54 as 
compared with the preceding year. 

The cost of the stations for the year was $21,567.11, or 
$256.68 less than for the preceding year. This does not 
include the cost of distribution to the schools and engine- 
houses which was $355.34 as against $251.15 in 1902; these 
small amounts representing chiefly the proportional shares of 
the expense of the delivery wagons. 

There has been an expenditure of $1,043.13 for the new 
North Street Reading Room, but no other important new item. 

The Use of Books. 

The table contained in Appendix VII. exhibits the circula- 
tion for home use throughout the Library system for the 
year. The aggregates are :

Sunday and Evening Service. 

The usual evening service has continued throughout the 
year. The Sunday attendance contuiues large, the circula- 
tion gaining from year to year. Following the practice of 
recent years the Library has been opened in the afternoon 
and evening on two holidays (Washington's Birthday and 
Patriot's Day), with a slight increase in circulation on 
each. ]Mr. Frank C. Blaisdell, Chief of the Sunday and Eve- 
ning Service, has prepared the tables which follow, showing 
comparisons of circulation upon Sundays and holidays for the 
years 1903-04 and 1002-03.

REPORT OF THE EXAMINING COMMITTEE 
FOR 1903-1904. 



The Chairman of the Examinms; Committee for 1903-04, Hon. 
Charles S. HamUn, has transmitted to the Trustees the reports of 
the sub-committees, from which the following are taken, embody- 
ing the suggestions or conclusions based upon the examination of 
the Library. 

1. Administration (Rev. James N. Supple, Chairman). — 
Your committee visited the Central Library in all its departments. 
Our examination was necessarily superficial and somewhat hast}', 
yet we could not fail to see the great machinery of this institution 
working in its quiet and systematic manner as one body. Good 
order, discipline, and attention to duty are very noticeable. The 
public is well served, and the wants of all supplied. We appre- 
ciate the magnitude of the work, and conse(iuently give i)raise, 
well merited, to those who have brought it to the perfection it has 
now attained. 

2. . Branches and N'ew Modes of Distribution (Rev. James 
A. Walsh, Chainnan). — This committee recommends: a. A 
larger supply of standard fiction, b. Greater dui)lication of copies 
of books in active demand. c. Prompt replacement of books 
reported as missing from the shelves, d. An enlarged appropri- 
ation for salaries at the branches, e. A new reading-room in 
Ward 19. /". AVidcr advertising of the advantages presented by 
the branches and stations. 

General Hazard Stevens of the connnittee presented an inili- 
vidual report embodying the result of his personal visits to 
various branches, and suggesting various improvements, especially 
the more extended use of plants and i)ictures at the reading 
rooms to make them more attractive, larger jiurchases of books 
for certain statiuns ; and remedial measures to diminish the pro- 
portion of unsuccessful card applications for books from the 
Central Library from ai)plicants through the branches and stations. 

3. Catalogues., JiuUetins, and I^^inding Lists (Hon. John 
Lathroi", C/iairinan). — The sub-connuittee finds this dei)artment 
of the Library in good condition, and the work satisfactorily 
done. 

4. T^tnance (Mr. J. Montgomery Sears, Chairman). — The 
present Library building covers an area, approximately, of 51,000 
square feet. The old Library building on Boylston street covered 
about 12,000 square feet. The area in scjuare feet, therefore, of the 
new Library, is over four times greater tlian tliat of the old 
Boylston street building. The yearly a])]noiiriation of the city 
when the Library Avas in the old building (1894), was about. 



Library Department. 49 

S180,000. The appropriation for the j^ear 1902-03 was $300,000, 
not twice the amount appropriated in 1894. When the Library 
occupied, the old building in 1894 there were employed in all 
its branches 185 persons. There were employed in 1902-03 
in all branches about 378 persons. To sustain the branch 
libraries and stations, which have increased greatly, new books 
are constantly needed ; there is also the extra expense of rent, 
binding, cataloguing, and transportation of books between 
the Central Library and its branches and delivery stations. 
The repair items have increased from about $3,600 in 1895 to 
$15,400 in 1902-03. Salaries have increased from $94,139.34 
in 1894 to about $191,350.44. The character of the office in the 
Library should determine the amount of the salary, and not the 
person holding the office. This increase in salaries is largely due 
to increased help, both in the Central Library and the new 
branches. With all this increase in expense, the increase in 
yearly appropriations has not been proiwrtionate. The Board of 
Trustees give their ser\dces, and their task is not a light one. 
They do their work well ; and as the Library is for the City of 
Boston, the City of Boston can ill afford to be other than very 
liberal in carrying on this good work. 

5. Printing and Binding (Mk. D. O. S. Lowell, Chair- 
man). — The Committee on Printing and Binding finds that the 
new linotype machine has done excellent work, but that it should 
he supplemented by the purchase of a new press, in order to 
prevent the congestion of work. As arrangements can be made 
so that an automatic rotary press may be bought on the instalment 
plan, the committee repeats its recommendation of last year, that 
such a press be bought as soon as possible. 

The work in the Bindery is in a thoroughly satisfactory condi- 
tion. 

6. Fine Arts (Mr. Frederic P. Vinton, Chairman). — The 
committee suggested the addition of certain Fine Art periodicals ; 
more extended advertising of the resources of the Art Depart- 
ment, and the purchase of the larger carbon reproductions of the 
works of the masters, to be systematically arranged under the 
advice of artists to be appointed by the Trustees. 

7. Books (Mr. John C. Gray, Chairman.) — The com- 
mittee has examined especially the selection of new books placed 
in Bates Hall, and has been much pleased with the wide variety 
and judicious choice. 

The committee has but one suggestion to make. The practice 
of bookbinding, not merely as a useful but as a fine art, is 
ra})idly increasing in this city, and in no art are good examples 
more instructive. The committee is aware how expensive good 
specimens of binding by the great masters, either ancient or 
modern, have l)ecome. The Library, although it has some 
remarkable pieces of bookbinding, is, upon the whole, not rich in 
this respect. We think the acquisition of beautiful bindings, so 
far as a moderate expenditure will permit, would answer to a real 
need.

After the receipt of said sum, the City is required to spend not less than 
one thousand dollars in every five years during the twenty-five years 
next succeeding (i.e., the income of four thousand dollars, at the rate 
of five per cent, per annum), in the purchase of books in the Spanish 
and Portuguese languages and literature, five years old in some one edi- 
tion. At the end of twenty-five years the income of said sum is to be 
expended annually in the purchase of books of permanent value, either

may be deemed expedient by those having charge of the Library.

APPENDIX VIII. 



TRUSTEES FOR FIFTY-TWO YEARS. 

The Hou. Edward Everett was President of the Board of 
Trustees from 1852 to 1864; George Tickuor in 1865; William 
W. Greenough, from 1866 to April, 1888; from May 7, 1888, 
to May 12, 1888, Prof. Henry AV. Haynes ; Samuel A. B. 
Abbott, May 12, 1888, to April 30, 1895; Hon. F. O. Prince, 
October 8, 1895, to May 8, 1899; Hon. Solomon Lincoln has 
served since -May 12, 1899. 

The Board for 1852 was a preliminary organization ; that for 
1853 made what is called the first annual report. At first it con- 
sisted of one alderman and one common councilman and five 
citizens at large until 1867, when a revised ordinance made it to 
consist of one alderman, two common councilmen, and six citizens 
at large, two of w^hom retired, unless reelected, each year, while 
the members from the City Council were elected yearly. In 1878 
the organization of the Board was changed to include one alder- 
man, one councilman, and five citizens at large, as before 1867; 
and in 1885, by the provisions of the amended city charter, the 
representation of the City Government upon the Board by an 
alderman and a councilman was abolished, leaving the Board 
as at present, consisting of five citizens at large, appointed by the 
Maj^or.
