To His Honor George A. Hibbard, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

Sir, — The Trustees of the Public Library of the City of 
Boston present the following report of its condition for the 
year ending January 31, 1908, being their fifty-sixth annual 
report : 

Organization of the Board. 

The Board organized on May 17, 1907, by the election 
of Mr. Solomon Lincoln as President, Rev. Dr. James 
DeNormandie, Vice-President, and Miss Delia Jean Deery, 
Clerk. 

On the 17th of May Mr. Thomas F. Boyle was reappointed 
a member of the Board for five years. 

Mr. Lincoln, who had been a member of the Board for ten 
years, died October 15. The Board at its meeting, Friday, 
October 18, took action as follows : 

The Trustees of the Boston Pul>Hc Liln-ary desire to put upon 
their records their high estimation of Mr. Solomon Lincoln, for 
ten years a Trustee, and for eight years the President of the 
Board. 

A man of large affairs, he was always ready to give his pres- 
ence and advice upon everything relating to the welfare of the 
Lil)rary ; with good judgment and legal ability he helped us to 
decide all the difficult questions which arose at our meetings ; he 
presided with rare dignity, impartiality and genial temper, and we 
regard his death as a great personal and public loss. 



2 City Document No. 25. 

The vacancy in the Board was filled on December 30, 1907, 
by the appointment of Mr. William F. Kenney. Dr. DeNor- 
mandie was chosen President, and Mr. Josiah H. Benton, 
Vice-President, on January 31, 1908. 

Chapter 114 of the Laws of the Commonwealth of the year 
1878, as amended by chapter 60 of the Laws of 1887, con- 
stitutes the Trustees of the Public Library of the City of 
Boston a corporation, with authority to take and hold real 
and personal estate which may be given to it and accepted 
by the Trustees for the benefit of the Library or any branch 
thereof, or any purpose connected therewith. These acts 
require the Trustees to have the general care and control 
of the Central Public Library and of all branches thereof, 
and the fixtures connected therewith, and also all the expendi- 
tures of money appropriated therefor. 

The money which the Trustees can expend for Library 
purposes comes from two separate sources : Appropriations 
made by the City Council for maintenance of the Library 
and branches, and income from property given to the Trustees 
in trust for Library purposes. 

The use of much of the income from property held in trust 
by the corporation is restricted to specific purposes by the 
conditions of the several trusts under which it is received, 
and none of it is applicable to the general maintenance of 
the Library. The unexpended balances of this income are 
carried from year to year to meet payments made there- 
from in accordance' with the terms of the trusts. The 
income from this source during the last year has been 
$15,912. It will be seen, therefore, that the maintenance 
and general purposes of the Library must be met almost 
entirely by appropriations by the City Council. These appro- 
priations since 1900 have been as follows: 



1901 
1902 
1903 
1904 
1905 
1906 
1907 



$302,000

305,500 
305,000 
310,000 
324,550 
325,000 



The percentage of increase in these appropriations during 
these seven years has been less than the percentage of 
increase in the population of the city during that time. But 
although the Library service has been extended in various 
directions for the public convenience the Trustees have never 



Library Department, 3 

exceeded the amount appropriated for it, nor have they 
received by transfer, or otherwise, anything from the city 
treasury in addition to the amount of tlie appropriation in 
each year. 

The principal increase in the expense of the administration 
of the Library since 1901 has been caused by the establish- 
ment of reading rooms and delivery stations in different parts 
of the city, by means of which the people in outlying districts 
have the collections of the Central Library brought near to 
them, and may receive books tlierefrom, witliout the necessity 
of coming to the Central Library Building in Copley square. 
The work of the branches and stations, including impoitant 
work with the schools of the city, is, we believe, of much 
benefit to the various parts of the city in which they are 
located, and promotes the convenience of the public by 
extending their use of the Library advantages. 

The payments made from the city appropriations for the 
expenses of the Central Library, including the printing and 
binding departments, have increased in the past seven years 
only $4,026, being less than two per cent , while the pay- 
ments from the same source for the expenses of branches 
and stations have increased about twenty-five per cent.

4 City Document No. 25. 

This balance of ^22,152.04 is composed of income of trust 
funds and cash on deposit in London to pay for books pur- 
chased on foreign account. The Auditor's report to the 
Trustees, which is appended hereto, contains a detailed state- 
ment of the receipts and payments for the year. The 
methods of financial administration of the Trustees in the 
disbursement of moneys are shown by an appendix hereto, 
to which they invite the careful attention of the City Council 
and of all persons interested in the expenses of the Library. 

The report of the Librarian, appended hereto, contains 
detailed information as to the operation of the Library 
and its various departments during the year, and the 
Trustees refer thereto for information not given in their own 
report. 

The maintenance of the Library system requires the care 
and management of properties representing an investment of 
at least five million dollars in value. These properties con- 
sist of the Central Library building and grounds, four branch 
library buildings and grounds, and parts of various other 
buildings, together with the contents and equipment of them 
all. The care of the Central Library building alone com- 
prises the protection, repair, cleaning, and maintenance of a 
building which covers 65,000 square feet of land, and has a 
floor area in daily use of 150,000 square feet. The Central 
Library building is also an elaborate architectural monument, 
so notable that, as such, it has given distinction to the City of 
Boston, and attracts visitors from every part of the world. It 
contains fine marbles, rich woodwork, and elaborate and 
unique decorations, which must be carefully guarded and 
fittingly maintained. 

Even the mere maintenance of this building requires, 
among other things, the following : 

A heating, lighting, ventilating and power plant of three 
100-horse-power boilers ; two tandem compound engines, each 
of 150-horse-power ; two dynamos ; eight pumps ; four venti- 
lating fans ; eight electric motors ; twelve elevators and 
booklifts, and a vacuum cleaning apparatus. 

This plant requires about sixteen hundred tons of coal 
annually for its operation, and current is supplied by it for 
about four thousand electric lamps. The care of the build- 
ing and operation of the plant call for the constant service of 
a force of engineers and firemen, janitors and assistants, two 
watchmen, carpenter, painter, electrician and a marble 
cleaner. The cleaning of the building alone requires a ser- 
vice of about twenty-two thousand hours annually. 



Library Department. ■ 5 

The binding, rebinding and repair of books requires a 
bindery to be maintained with twenty-nine employees. The 
Trustees also maintain a printing office, in which all of the 
Library catalogues, cards, forms, finding lists, bulletins and 
publications are printed, and by means of which 71,421 
Library pul)lications were distributed to the citizens of Boston 
during the last year without chai'ge. 

The service of the Library to our people includes the 
proper protection, repair and administration in use of about 
nine hundred thousand books, and the proper selection, pur- 
chase, cataloguing and preparation for use of about thirty 
thousand books, either purchased or acquired by gift, each 
year. In addition, however, to books for ordinary and general 
use, the Library has the custody of manuscripts and other 
special material, invaluable historically, and priceless com- 
mercially. The donors of such collections as the Chamber- 
lain, the Prince, and the Garrison collections and others have 
selected the Boston Public Library as the place which is of 
all others in New England at once the most safe, honorable 
and useful. 

The Library also receives by gift public documents for 
which it is a depository selected for similar reasons. For 
instance, it receives in this way the specifications and draw- 
ings of patents from almost every civilized country having 
great industrial activities. It has the most complete collec- 
tion of such specifications and drawings in the United States 
outside of the City of Washington. This collection is being 
constantly used for service to the industrial interests of 
Boston and New England. It is, of course, the duty of the 
Trustees to accommodate, conserve and adequately administer 
all this material for public use. 

The real work of a great circulating and reference library, 
like the Boston Public Library, only begins when its books 
and other material are acquired. Books and manuscripts 
and other library material are only valuable for use, and the 
important work of a library is to provide for such use in a 
convenient and efficient manner. This requires a force of 
intelligent, educated, specially trained persons. The Trus- 
tees are glad to be able to say that they think the persons 
employed in the Library for this purpose fully meet this 
requirement. 

The primary purpose of a public library, supported by 
money raised by taxation, should be to give the use of good 
books and other educational library material to persons who 
might not othewise enjoy such use. But it is also of very 



6 City Document No. 25. 

great importance that the library should within the means at 
its cojnmand afford opportunity for study and research by 
scholars and students. In doing this the library supple- 
ments the work of the public schools and of the university. 
It places the highest special knowledge at the service of all 
our citizens without charge and without unnecessary detail 
or formality. It touches the elementary and common need, 
and begins with the child who has just learned to read and 
aids him in the common school. To most of the graduates 
of our grammar schools who pass at once into active life, the 
library stands in place of the high school, the academy and 
the college, and it is to them a university. In short, in the 
aggregate of all its services, the Boston Public Library is in 
itself a system of education for all and free to all. 

The Boston Public Library is not a single isolated collec- 
tion of books. It is a system of libraries. It includes not 
only the Central Library in Copley square, but also twenty- 
eight branches and reading rooms in different parts of the 
city, between the Central Library and which there is daily 
"delivery of books, so that persons residing in different parts 
of the city, removed from the Central Library, may upon 
application to the branches and reading rooms in their 
immediate vicinity draw books from the Central Library col- 
lection. The Trustees are regularly delivering books to 
eleven branches, seventeen reading rooms, forty-six engine- 
houses, thirty-one institutions, and one hundred and eight 
public and parochial schools in the city, and an average of 
four hundred volumes a day has been sent out by the delivery 
wagons of the Central Library this year. They supply 
books for general reading, free of charge, to the people of a 
city of six hundred and twenty-eight thousand inhabitants 
distributed over an area of forty-three square miles. 

The active work of the Library foice occupies every secu- 
lar day of the year excepting four, and one-half day on Sun- 
day. The active day's work of the Library force begins at 
nine o'clock in the morning, and lasts until ten o'clock at 
night at the Central Library, except in summer, when the 
Library closes at nine o'clock in the evening. 

The Trustees hold regular meetings each week, except 
during the summer months, and it is rare that anj' member 
of the Board is absent from a meeting. Much time is also 
given by committees of the Board in attention to matters 
requiring special investigation or consideration. 

We are glad to be able to commend the faithful, intelli- 
gent, and loyal service of the Librarian, the heads of depart- 



Library Department. 7 

ments, and all the employees of the Library. It is upon this 
service that the success of the Library in meeting the reason- 
able requirements of the public necessarily depends. 

An Examining Committee of twenty-one persons, citizens 
residing in different parts of the city, was appointed by the 
Trustees as required by the ordinance, and their report is 
published herewith.

APPENDIX. 



METHODS OF FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION. 



The financial administration of the Library is closely controlled, and 
subjected to definite checks and balances. In order that the system 
may be fully understood, the following detailed statement is presented : 

Income. 

The Trustees or their employees do not handle directly any funds save, 
first, the income from invested book funds when and if placed abroad 
to meet foreign bills ; and second, a small sum on deposit representing 
interest on former deposits and payments for lost books. The sum of 
$1,500, however, is advanced each year by the City Auditor to the 
Library Auditor, for the payment of petty expenses. 

Expenditures. 

The Trustees being a corporation,* the by-laws provide as follows : 

" Article 1, Section 2. — The President shall preside at all meetings 
of the corporation, sign all pay-rolls and all requisitions upon the City 
Treasurer, and all drafts or checks upon 'funds on deposit in London 
and in payment for purchases made by the Trustees. 

" Art. 1, Sect. 8. — In the absence or disability of the President, the 
Vice-President shall perform all the duties of the President. 

"Art. 4, Sect. 4. — The Auditor shall examine and audit all bills and 
accounts due from the Library, keep a record of receipts from fines and 
sales of catalogues and other sources, and prepare the pay-rolls, and all 
requisitions upon the City Auditor. 

" The Auditor shall also keep books of account showing accurately 
all expenditures of the city appropriation, the income of each of the 
trust funds and expenditures thereof ; and at the first regular meeting 
of the Trustees in each month shall make a report showing the receipts 
and expenditures of the Library for the previous month and for the 
current year, and its financial condition. She shall submit, also, monthly, 
for allowance with other bills presented, a statement, with voucher, of 
sums expended by her for postage, expressage, cleaning, bills for books 
whose total in each case does not exceed ten dollars, and other bills 
which she is required to pay in cash out of the Library moneys in her 
hands. 

" All bills and accounts audited by the Auditor if then approved by 
the Librarian shall be presented to, the Trustees for allowance at the 
meeting next preceding the 15th day of each and every month ; but in 
castes of special exigency bills may be presented for allowance at ather 
meetings of the Trustees." 

The fiscal year of the Library is from February 1st to January 31st. 

Authorization. 

At each weekly meeting of the Trustees the Librarian submits a type- 
written list of books and a list of supplies and miscellaneous articles 
which he asks authority to purchase, and of work which he asks author- 
ity to have done. A copy of the list of books is in the hands of each 

*See page 2 (nife. 



Library Department. 9 

Trustee a day Ijefore the meeting. A copy of the list of supplies, etc., 
is at th'e place of each Trustee at the date of the meeting. Both these 
lists are dated, and on the latter list each item is numbered and its esti- 
mated price affixed. The lists when authorized are transmitted to the 
Library Auditor, and together with them an attested copy of the entry 
in the Trustees' record of the vote of authorization, which reads in the 
following form : 

'' The Librarian was authorized to purchase according to the lists sub- 
mitted by him, and to be placed on file the following: Books chargeable 
to city money to the amount of $ ; chargeable to trust funds 

income, $ ; also miscellaneous supplies for Central Library and 

branches, to the amount of $ ; for Bindery, $ ; and for 

Printing Department, $ ." 

Orders, whether for goods or for labor, are in writing signed by the 
Librarian and numbered to correspond with a stub record kept. Upon 
the stub record are minuted the date of the list authorized by the Trus- 
tees on which the item appears, and the number of the item on that 
list. Bills rendered are checked up in the Librarian's office from the 
stub record, and to each item is prefixed a minute identifying that 
item by date and number with the item authorized by the Trustees. 
The receipt of the goods or the completion of the work is certified by 
the head of the department to which the goods are delivered or for 
which the work is done; or if the goods are for stock, their receipt is 
certified to by tlie custodian of the stock room. The bill then goes to 
the Library Auditor, who, upon finding that the bill is figured correctly, 
certifies to it as " Examined." It is then endorsed by the Librarian as 
"recommended for payment,'' and is presented to the Trustees for 
allowance under Article 4 of the By-Laws, supra. If allowed, it is 
signed by the President of the Trustees as " Approved for {$ )." 

It is also included in a list of bills chargeable to the same account, 
the requisition upon the City Auditor for the payment of which is 
signed by the President of the Trustees. This requisition is drawn by 
the Library Auditor upon receipt from the Clerk of the corporation of 
an attested copy of the vote authorizing the payment of such bills. 

The foregoing practice covers miscellaneous bills. 

Exceptions. — As to certain of the accounts the circumstances are 
peculiar. 

1. Book Billii. — Orders placed for books, though placed as per 
direction from the Librarian, go not from the Librarian's office, but 
from the Ordering Department, upon receiving an attested copy of the 
list authorized by the Trustees. The bills received do not have pre- 
fixed to the items the specific authority. Each bill is as a whole certi- 
fied to by the head of the Ordering Department. 

2. Bills for books payable out of the income of trust funds on 
deposit abroad. 

These are not paid through the City Auditor, but by special draft 
drawn upon funds on deposit in London, drafts being signed by the 
President of the Trustees, upon authorization by the Board. (See By- 
Laws, article 1, section 2, siq)ra.) 

3. Payments on Contracts. — Original of all contracts must be filed 
with the ('ity Auditor. A duplicate is on file with the Library Audi- 
tor. A copy of each contract is also deposited in the office of the 
City Clerk, under provision of chapter 343 of the Acts of 1907. 

4. Routine Accounts. — These include — 

(a.) Gas or electric light. 

(b.) Rents of branches or branch reading rooms. 

(c.) Work done and service rendered under what might be 
called open contracts, the price being agreed upon, but 
the amonnt of the work or service varying from month 
to month. Such are the transportation of books in 
so far as by local express between the Central Library 
and the branches and delivery stations. 



10 City Document No. 25. 

(d.) Minor Bills. — Bills not exceeding $10, including bills for 
books, are by direction of the City Auditor paid by 
the Library Auditor out of the cash in her hands. 
(See article 4, section 4, of the By-Laws, fiupra.) From 
such moneys also are paid in cash postage and express- 
age. For all such payments she requires a memo- 
randum in writing, certified by the employee, and 
approved for payment in writing by the Librarian. 
All book bills are rendered in duplicate, the original is transmitted 
with the requisition to the City Auditor, the duplicate being kept on file 
in the Ordering Department and used in place of an accession list. All 
bills, except book bills, entering into the monthly requisition upon the 
City Auditor are transcribed in full in the books of the Library Auditor 
under date of requisition. 

Actual payment of all bills transmitted with the requisition to the 
City Auditor is made by the City Treasurer upon a draft signed by the 
Mayor. 

Pay-kolls. (See article 4, section 4, supra.) 

. No person can be added to the pay-roll nor can the salary of any 
employee be increased without a vote of the Trustees in the form of an 
order, an attested copy of which must be filed Avith the City Auditor 
after passing through the hands of the Library Auditor. 

The evening and Sunday service employees are, however, paid by the 
hour, and for this branch of the service a schedule of the positions author- 
ized by the Trustees, the rate per hour to be paid, and the number of 
hours weekly for which the attendant may be employed is filed with the 
City Auditor and with the Library Auditor. The amount of this branch 
of the pay-roll varies somewhaf from week to week, and a statement of 
the persons employed and the amounts due to each under the schedule 
is drawn up weekly by the officer in charge of the evening service, is 
approved by the Librarian and transmitted to the Library Auditor, and 
if found to be in accord with the schedule authorized is incorporated in 
the pay-roll for that week. 

Absences for which deductions are to be made from the salaries of 
regular attendants are reported weekly to the Library Auditor by the 
Librarian's clerk and pro rata deductions made accordingly. 

Exceptions. — Janitor's pay-roll for cleaning. 

The scrub women employed at the Central Library and at the 
branches are not included in the ordinary pay-rolls. A statement is 
rendered weekly by the chief engineer at the Central Library giving the 
names of the women employed for that week and the number of hours 
of service rendered by each at the rate of 20 cents an hour. This state- 
ment is transmitted to the Library Auditor, who pays for this service 
out of the cash in her hands, taking as her voucher a special pay-roll 
receipted. 

Cleaning in the Branches. — Bills are rendered by the branch cus- 
todians, and if approved by the Librarian are paid directly by the 
Auditor. 

For all payments made by the Library Auditor out of cash as above, 
she submits monthly a bill with vouchers, which is audited by the 
Librarian, and, if approved by the Librarian, takes the course of other 
bills presented. (See article 4, section 4, of the By-Laws, supra.)

Method of Disbursing Suj)plies. 

The chief of the department for which any supply is needed draws a 
requisition. This requisition is stamped " Approved " by the Librarian 
and forwarded to the custodian of the stock room, who then supplies 
the article direct to the department. This applies to all articles used 
by the various departments, which may be denominated supplies, i.e., 
which are consumed in use, including oil, etc., for the engineer depart- 
ment, supplies for janitors, carpenter, painter and marble washer; stotJk 
of printing ofiBce and bindery. 

The custodian of the stock room keeps a record showing purchases, 
firm from whom purchased, and amounts paid, distribution by day, 
month and year to the several departments, and at the end of the year 
a summary account showing under each department the amount and 
cost of the various supplies furnished to it, itemized under the several 
articles.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Trustees: 

I respectfulh' submit my report for the year ending 
January 31, 1908. 

Finance. 

A record of the receipts and payments for the year is 
to be found in the statement of the Library Auditor (Appen- 
dix L). 

Buildings, Equipment and General Administration. 

No changes of importance have been made in the equip- 
ment at the Central Library, and the entire plant is in good 
order. The fire boxes of the three boilers have been re- 
lined, and the bridge walls rebuilt. These boilers are peri- 
odicall}" inspected, and their condition is pronounced satis- 
factory. The consumption of coal has slightly exceeded 
that for the preceding year, aggregating 1,650 tons. Addi- 
tional lamps have been installed in the Newspaper Room, 
improving the lighting there, and certain changes are under 
consideration affecting the lighting of the wall cases in Bates 
Hall, with a view to improvement. 

The vacuum cleaning system has been extended, and it 
is now applied to the cleaning of books and shelves in various 
parts of the building as well as in the stacks, and in sweep- 
ing on the Special Libraries floor. 

The exterior woodwork of the windows and doors through- 
out the building ought to be painted at an early day, or as 
soon as the financial resources of the department will permit. 

Repairs and Improvements at Branches. 

The repairs and improvements at the branches and read- 
ing rooms include a new boiler at the Brighton Branch, 
new exterior metal lamps at the front entrance, and a large 
glazed screen in the main hallway, to break drafts from the 
outer doors. The Charlestown and East Boston Branches 
have been repainted. At the Roxbury Branch a new boiler 
has been installed by the Trustees of the Fellowes Athe- 
naeum, who own the building. The Public Buildings De-

partment, which provides us with apartments at the Uphain's 
Corner and West Roxbury Branches, has repainted them, 
and similar improvements with other repairs have been 
made by our landlords at the Broadway Extension, Roxbury 
Crossing and Mt. Bowdoin Reading Rooms. At Roslindale 
the roof has been thoroughly repaired, the outside of the 
building painted, and the fence put in good order. 

One new reading room has been fitted up and opened 
at 1518 Tremont street, in a closely populated district. 
The discontinuing of the shop-station in Neponset, the last 
shop-station maintained by the Library, was immediately fol- 
lowed by the opening of a new reading room fitted up at 
"362 Neponset avenue to serve the needs of the same dis- 
trict. The Mattapan Reading Room was transferred in 
March to a new location at 727 Walk Hill street, nearer 
the centre of population in that district. 

The Upham's Corner Reading Room has been made a 
branch library. 

Fire Protection at the Central Library and in the 
Printing and Bindery Departments. 

This subject, referred to in the report of the Examining 
Committee, has, under your direction, been fully considered by. 
me, and a statement as to existing conditions follows. 

In the Central Library the carpenter's and painter's repair 
rooms are located in the basement, isolated, however, from the 
rest of the building. The book stacks occupy wings of the 
building apart from that portion of the structure which con- 
tains the boilers. 

The stacks contain nothing combustible except the books 
and shelving. They are constantly occupied, and, in effect, 
patrolled continuously during the day and evening, and peri- 
odically by a watchman during the night, his visits being 
made certain by the use of a watchman's register. The stacks 
are not particularly exposed to fire danger from without, and 
the walls, ceilings, and floors are of incombustible material. 

The carpenter's and the painter's rooms contain some com- 
bustible material, but these rooms are simply parts of the cellar 
of the building, with walls, ceilings, and floors of masonry. 
There are partitions of boards at each end shutting off the 
carpenter's and painter's rooms from the rest of the cellar, and 
only exposed to these other portions of the cellar, which are 
also constructed of masonry with incombustible ceilings, 
floors, and walls. No fire is allowed or is necessary in either the 
carpenter's or painter's rooms or in the stacks or anywhere 



14 City Document No. 25. 

adjacent thereto. The Hghting is by electricity, and all the 
wires here, as throughout the building, are run in metal tubes. 
No smoking is allowed in either place. A gas burner against 
a brick pier, and properly guarded, is used for heating glue in 
the carpenter's room. 

The entire building is under constant observation during ser- 
vice hours, day and evening, and periodically patrolled by the 
watchmen, two being on duty, throughout the night, ancl it is 
adequately provided with automatic fire extinguishers of the 
})est type, periodically tested and kept in working condition. 
The carpenter's room also has a hose connection, ready for 
immediate use therein or in the painter's room. 

I think the probability of a fire occurring anywhere in the 
building is remote. If there should be one, from incendiarism 
or other cause, the means of extinguishing it are ample and 
easily accessible, and the provisions for confining a fire to the 
apartment wherein it might occur seem to me ample. The 
board partitions across the corridors of the basement adjacent 
to the carpenter's and painter's rooms have now been covered 
with tin, on the room side, the only part exposed to combusti- 
ble material. 

The entire building is periodically inspected by the fire 
department patrol, and it has recently been inspected by the 
•underwriters' inspection department. There is, of course, no 
question of fire escapes to be considered at the Central build- 
ing, nor is the building open to danger from fire upon the 
outside. 

The Printing and Bindery Departments are contained in a 
brick building at 42 Stanhope street. This building is sepa- 
rated on three sides from other buildings by the width of a 
street or alley. Where adjacent to other buildings the win- 
dows have outside fke-resisting shutters of approved type. 

Each department has an adequate outside fire-escape, con- 
sisting of iron platforms- and stairs, well constructed ancl 
maintained in good condition. Gas jets are used for heating 
glue in the bindery, and in connection with the linotype 
machines but especial care is taken against fire due to any- 
thing in the building. The boilers supplying heat, electric 
light and power are not in the basement, but are located in an 
adjoining structure, and are in charge of a competent superin- 
tendent. 

Each of the departments has the following fire protec- 
tion: twelve iron pails, readily accessible, and each kept 
full of water; one automatic fire extinguisher, frequently 
tested, and kept in working order. The ceilings are equipped 
with a system of fusible automatic fire-alarm connections, 
signalling the Auxiliary Fire Alarm service, with which 



Library Department. 15 

every other apartment in the building is also similarly con- 
nected. Each department has a fire-alarm box of the pull- 
down lever type. 

If an alarm should occur in the night from the fusible plug 
system, the Auxiliary Fire Alarm Company is required to at 
once notif}^ the chief of the Printing Department, who is in tel- 
ephonic communication. The rooms are periodically inspected 
by the fire department patrol, the underwriters' inspectors, 
and the building inspectors who have supervision of the 
arrangement of exits and fire-escapes. 

These departments are insured against fire damage in the 
sum of $25,000, payable to the Trustees in case of loss. This 
amply covers any pecuniary risk on account of equipment, 
stock, or material in process, in either department. Each 
department has a safe. If rare or valuable books are sent to 
the bindery they are especially safeguarded, put in the safe at 
night, and returned to the Central Library as soon as possible. 

The Use of Books. 

Statistical tables will be found in Appendix VII. showing 
the circulation of books for use outside the Library buildings 
throughout the Library system. The following summary of 
this circulation is presented :

The extensive use of the Library, by means of its reference 
and reading-room service, in various departments, is not regis- 
tered statistically, but it is probably larger in the aggregate 
than the home use of books. The reference use, including that 
in co-operation with the schools, continually increases. 

It is our purpose to encourage the use of books within the 
Library as well as at home, and to make our books available 
with as little formality as possible. Thousands of carefully 
selected volumes may now be taken directly from the shelves 
for use at the reading tables, without the necessity of filling 
call slips, and therefore without appearing in the registered 
circulation.

These figures do not include the number of books which are 
sent to engine houses, institutions, and schools. 

Restricted Access to Open Shelves — Missing Books. 

The total number of books reported as missing at the close 
of the year's shelf reading was 1,742, as compared with 1,819 
in 1906-07. Experience has shown that about 30 per cent, 
of these will eventually be recovered, but the others, mainly 
cheap books, largely from the children's open shelves at the 
branches and reading rooms outside the Central Library, may 
be considered as permanently lost. 

The experiments in restricted access to open shelves, affect- 
ing only the younger readers, begun some months ago, and 
described in my last report, have now been tried long enough 
to enable us to judge of the results. As expected, fewer books 
have been lost than heretofore. The restriction is not particu- 
larly burdensome, and has caused no friction. Under it chil- 
dren below sixteen years of age are simply required to present 
a library card or identification ticket as a pre-requisite for 
admission to the open shelves at the branches or reading 
rooms. In some instances entrances and exits are controlled 
by turnstiles near the custodian's desk. 

The restriction has been in force satisfactorily at certain 
branches for nearly twelve months, and only 944 missing vol- 
umes have been recorded throughout the system, excluding the 
Central Library, as compared with 1,140 in the preceding 
year. These statistics, showing a decrease in losses amounting 
to 200 volumes, although encouraging and indicative, do not 
enable us to measure the full effect of the restriction, since they 
include some months before the new rule was adopted. 

But apart from the diminished losses, it has been found 
that the requirement of the use of a card before children are 
permitted access to the open shelves has had an important 
influence upon discipline. The crowding of the reading rooms 
at certain hours, by children who visit them, not for books, but 
for loitering, has largely ceased. 

The problem of preserving order in some of these rooms has 
at times taxed the energies of the custodians that should be 
devoted to other purposes. The restriction aids in its solu- 
tion. 

This improvement in discipline promotes the attendance of 
adults, who are disinclined to use rooms frequented by more 
or less disorderly crowds of children. In branches where sep- 
arate children's rooms can be maintained, no difficulty of this 
kind is found. But in the smaller reading rooms, where pro- 



18 City Document No. 25. 

vision for children consists only in separate tables reserved 
for them, order and quiet must be preserved or adult readers 
will not remain in the rooms. Hence the closer supervision 
of the children, possible under the new rule, encourages a 
serious use of the branches and reading rooms by adults. 

The new rule also promotes the home use of books. Since 
the children who use the open shelves must provide them- 
selves with library cards, they avail themselves of the privi- 
leges the cards carry, and take out books for home reading. 

The rule permitting the remission of fines incurred by chil- 
dren after the lapse of six months, which went into effect coin- 
cidently with the rule restricting the access to open shelves, 
has set free for use several thousand cards previously held 
without limit on account of the non-payment of such fines. 
It has been found also that it has stimulated the payment of 
fines before the six months' limit is reached. That the recov- 
ery of the card after a fixed time prevents the irregular taking 
of books from the open shelves is unquestioned. If the card 
with its privileges can be thus recovered by one who wishes 
to take books, the temptation to take them without having 
them charged as required by the rules is diminished. 

The change does not appear to have afTected the amqunt 
of fine money collected. During the year 1906-07, $2,131.16 
was received in fines at eleven branches, and during 1907-08, 
$2,166.30. These figures seem to confirm the opinion that 
fines due on children's cards permanently withheld were for 
various reasons not collectable, and that the withholding of 
such cards, depriving the young persons to whom they had 
been issued of the privileges of the Library without alterna- 
tive, was in its effect an excessive penalty, that might be remit- 
ted without other than a nominal money loss. 

Frequently, carelessness on the part of the child led to the 
fine. Carelessness is to be discouraged, but primarily the 
Library aims to promote the use of books, not to impose pen- 
alties for carelessness. If the non-payment of a fine in such 
cases is to lead, as it often led, to the permanent . loss of 
Library privileges by the card-holder, one of the objects for 
which the Library exists is defeated in order that carelessness 
may be punished. 

Books Received. 

In the routine work of selection of books for purchase I have, 
as heretofore, been materially assisted by Mr. James L. Whit- 
ney, who has regularly examined the current American and 
English announcements of new publications ; by Mr. Fleisch- 



Library Department. 19 

ner, Assistant Librarian, who has checked up and vakied pro- 
posed purchases from auction catalogues and sale lists of rare 
books; and by Dr. W. M. Arnolt and Mr. Murdoch, who have 
covered, respectively, the foreign and scientific lists and 
catalogues. To them, and to Miss Macurdy, of the Ordering 
Department, Mr. Bicrstadt, of the Reference Department, Mr. 
Ward, of the Branch Department, and Mr. Maiers, of the 
Ordering Department staff, my acknowledgments are due.

ENGLISH PROSE FICTION. 

The number of volumes of new English prose fiction pur- 
chased during the year was 1,623, costing $1,572.98. 
Replacements of fiction already on our catalogue and addi- 
tional copies for the Central Library, branches and stations, 
including juvenile fiction, required 8,123 volumes, costing 
S4,875. The total cost of fiction, current and non-current, 
amounted to 17.3 per cent, of the total amount expended for 
all books. 

Of current fiction, 759 different titles comprise the number 
of volumes sent to us for examination. These have been read 
usuall}^ by two, and frequently by three persons, and outline 
reports, indicating the character of the books, filed with the 
Librarian. Of the entire number, 147 were selected for 
purchase. The conservative policy of selection, pursued for 
some 5'ears, has, it will be seen, been maintained.

Total city money and funds expended 

The number of books bought in 1907-08, 30,727, exceeds by 
4,359 the number purchased in the preceding year, due to the 
larger number (4,518) added to the branches, stations and 
reading rooms. 

In addition to the list of noteworthy books given here by 
title, there have been purchased a collection of books in 
modern Greek, selected in part by a native Greek, Professor 
Ion, of Boston University; one of works in the Lettish language 
bought in response to a request made by a committee repre- 
senting the Letts in this city, and a collection of books for the 
Wind, chiefly pianoforte music, together with a few works on 
the literature of music, in New York point and Braille. 

Other special purchases not elsewhere noted arc a collection 
of genealogies obtained from Walford Brothers, England; a 
number of the publications of the Roxburghe Club; books 



Library Department. 21 

illustrating the printing art, i.e., works printed by Bodoni and 
those issued by the Essex House Press, including the Guild and 
School of Handicraft publications; books relating to the 
textile industries ; forty-one volumes of modern music selected 
by Mr. Allen A. Brown; seventy-five volumes of standard 
German fiction, and about one hundred volumes, additional 
copies of English literature and history, to meet the special 
needs of students in the Harvard-Lowell Institute Collegiate 
Courses. 

Another important accession is the ' ' Correspondencia de la 
Legacion Mexicana en Washington durante la Intervenacion 
Extrangera, 1860-1868," published, 1870-92, in ten volumes, 
and covering a period which has been called the most difficult 
in the annals of Mexican diplomacy, when Matias Romero was 
in office at the legation in Washington. 



EARLY AMERICAN ALMANACS. 

An unusually large number of early American almanacs 
were obtained, chiefly at auction sales, of which ten were pub- 
lished in Boston and Cambridge before 1700, viz. : Bracken- 
bury, 1667; Dudley, 1668; Browne, 1669; Richardson, 1670; 
Russell, 1671; Hobart, 1673; Sherman, 1674; Foster, 1675; 
Tully, 1690; Tully, 1695. 



EARLY AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS. 

The chief additions to the early newspaper files do not 
represent an outlay of money, but have been effected through 
exchanges of our duplicates with other libraries. In this 
way there have been secured 195 numbers of the Boston 
Evening Post, covering parts of the years 1767, '68, '71 to 
'74; 41 numbers of the Boston News Letter, 1763-75; 155 
numbers of the Boston Post Boy, 1753-74 ; 40 numbers of the 
Boston Gazette, 1756-57, or 431 numbers in all, representing a 
priced valuation of S523, and a piece-for-piece exchange of 165 
numbers.

BRANCHES AND STATIONS. 

There have been purchased 14,502 volumes for the branches 
and stations, or 4,518 more than in 1906-07. Of these 6,104 
were placed in the 17 stations and were bought chiefly to 
strengthen the permanent collections at the reading rooms. 
They included, besides books of reference and non-fiction, 
1,400 volumes of juvenile fiction, representing 108 titles, and 
143 volumes of the Lang Fairy books. 

Some purchases common to all the branches and stations 
were the Catholic Encyclopsedia, of which two volumes are 
issued, and the Children's Hour, a collection of stories in 10 
volumes, edited by Eva March Tappan. This last was bought 
from the income of the Ford fund, which is applicable to 
the purchase of books adapted to youth. A set of Dickens' 
works, in the Fireside edition, was bought especially for 
replacing worn-out copies. 

GIFTS. 

The givers for 1907-08 number 3,844, the volumes 14,030, 
and the number (serials) 23,471. Besides these, there were 



32 City Document No. 25. 

received by gift 80 newspaper subscriptions, 441 photographs, 
605 maps, 14 manuscripts, and 144 broadsides. 

The most notable gift of books in recent years was received 
in August when this Library came into possession of the valu- 
able private library of the late Abram E. Cutter of Charles- 
town. The collection, comprising 2,809 volumes, was, under 
the will of Mr. Cutter, subject to a life interest of his widow, 
Mrs. Elizabeth F. Cutter, executrix. Mrs. Cutter, however, 
relinquished her rights, and the books are now shelved tem- 
porarily on the Special Libraries floor. The collection as a 
whole is miscellaneous, with much material relating to Ameri- 
can history and biography, and while the larger part of the 
books is duplicated here, there are upwards of 700 volumes, 
many of them rare and important, which are lacking. The 
gift enabled the Library to make nine additions to its already 
large collection of Cotton Mather's works, as shown by the 
following titles: Speedy Repentance — A sermon. Boston, 
1689. Man of his Word — Essay on fidelity. Boston, 1713. 
Faithful Monitor — An Abstract of lawes. Boston, 1704. 
Malachi; or the Everlasting Gospel. Boston, 1717. Bron- 
tologia Sacra; The Voice of God in the Thunder. London, 
1695. Repeated Warnings — Essay to warn young people. 
Boston, 1712. Sailor's Companion and Counsellour. Boston. 
1709. Vigilantius; or a Servant of the Lord. Boston, 1706. 
Real and Vital Religion, served, etc. Boston, 1716. 

Other works are John Norton's Redeemed Captive, Boston, 
1748; Poor Richard's Almanac, 1746 (lacking in the Libraiy 
file); a perfect copy of the first Boston Directory, 1789; 
Samuel Johnson's Ethica, 1752, printed by Benjamin Frank- 
lin; a complete set of the Historical and Genealogical Society 
Register in 50 volumes; a set of the Proceedings and Collec- 
tions of the Massachusetts Historical Society in 74 volumes; 
the Prince Society publications, and the New York Historical 
Society Collections in 29 volumes. There are also 126 vol- 
umes made up by Mr. Cutter from various printed sources and 
illustrated with engravings and other matter relating to the 
particular subject. One of the features of the collection is' the 
beauty of the bindings, some of which were done by Zaehns- 
dorf and Riviere. 

These books supplement a gift of $4,000 received by the 
Library from the Cutter Estate in 1901. 

Another gift of note, received in May, was that of Mr. Louis 
Weissbein, a Boston architect, who gave his collection of works 
on architecture, numbering 146 volumes, 112 serials and 160 
photographs. Eighty-six volumes were placed in the Libraiy 
collection, and those which were duplicated here were ex-

changed for other books. Among the books retained were 
Schinkel's Sammlung Architektonischer Entwih'fe, Berhn, 
1866, 174 plates, in which the plans are taken from buildings 
in Germany, especially in Berlin; Hamburgs Neubaii von 
Charles Fuchs, 1844-68, 60 plates; and Das neue Anatomie- 
Gebaude zu Berlin, von Albert Cremer, Berlin, 1866.

graphs, scenes in San Domingo.

ing William Lloyd Garrison, 2 volumes, Bal'onial Halls

CATALOGUE CARDS FIXISHED AND FILED. 

The number of cards added to the catalogues during the 
year aggregates 206,589. Of these, 182,039 were added to the 
Central Library Catalogues. Of the cards filed in the Central 
Library Catalogues, 67,552 were placed in the Bates Hall 
public catalogue cabinets, the same number in the official 
catalogue, and 46,935 in the cabinets connected with the 
Special Libraries. 

THE ALLEN A. BROWN CATALOGUE. 

The work of printing the Catalogue of the Allen A. Brown 
Collection of Music has proceeded throughout the year. 
About one-fifth of the entire work is in type. It is proposed to 
issue this catalogue in parts, following each other, as com- 
pleted, until the work is done. It has required much care in 
order to secure the best presentation of the diversified 
material, and the preparation of the first section has 
involved delays that will not be repeated. 

Shelf Department. 

The annual statistics of the Shelf Department, prepared by 
Mr. W. G. T. Roffe, officer in charge, appear in Appendix IV. 

The number of volumes placed upon the shelves in the 
general collection for the year aggregated 15,309. The 
additions to the special collections number 2,076. The total 
number of volumes in the Central Library, January 31, 1908, 
was 723,075 as compared with 706,909 at the corresponding 
date in 1907. 

In the general collection the additions for the year in the 
principal classes are : Bibliography, ,362 ; History, Biography, 
and Geography — General, 393 ; American, 1861 ; English, 
982; French, 459; German and Scandinavian, 450; Oriental, 
494; Theology, Ecclesiastical History, etc., 1,316; Social 
Science, Political Economy, etc., 637; Mechanic Arts, 386;

Publications. 

Mr. Lindsay Swift, Editor of Library Publications, has pre- 
pared the following report as to the number and character of 
the documents which have passed under his editorial super- 
vision during the year : 

1. Monthly Bulletin, twelve issues, containing about 440 

pages for the year. The editions were 5,000 each month, 
except during June, July, and September, when 4,000 
. were issued. 

2. The Annual List, containing 307 pages, as against 272 

pages of the year preceding, was issued on January 1, 
1908, in an edition of 2,500 on common paper, and 200 
on bond paper for binding purposes. 

3. In February, 1907, in an edition of 500 copies, a 12"* 

" Description of the Mural Decorations" (pp. 36), wherein 
the various hitherto separate accounts were brought 
together and revised. 

4. Li April, 1907, in an edition of 250 copies, a " Catalogue of 

Selected Editions of the Book of Common Prayer . . . 
together with Illuminated Missals in Manuscript, Early 
Printed Books of Hours, and other Books of Devotion 
... on Exhibition at the Boston Public Library from 
August, 1906, until February, 1907" (pp. 52). The 
nuclei of the exhibition were loaned by Mr. Josiah H. 
Benton .(Prayer Books), and Miss Susan Minns (Missals 
and Books of Hours). 

This makes a total of 835 pages as against 714 pages for the 
year previous. Considerable time was also given to reading 
proof and conferring on the Allen A. Brown Music Catalogue. 

Besides the usual titles of new books, programmes of 
exhibitions, Library Regulations, hours of opening and closing, 
and lists of free lectures, etc., there were printed in the 
Monthly Bulletin the following special Hsts: 

1. Memorial Day: a list for the use of Schools. (In Bulletin 

for May, 1907, pp. 187, 188.) Compiled by Miss Jordan. 
Also the following Lists prepared by the lecturers them- 
selves in connection with the lectures during the season before 
in the Lowell Institute. These lists were brought before print- 
ing, into conformity with the established methods of the 
Library. 

2. Nutrition of Man, by Russell H. Chittenden, LL.D., 

Professor of Physiological Chemistry and Director of the 
Sheffield Scientific School of Yale University. (In 
Bulletin for March, 1907, p. 105.) 



Library Department. 39 

3. The Polish Nation and its Struggle for Freedom, by 

Wincenty Lutoslawski. (In Bulletin for October, 1907, 
p. 375.) 

4. The Protozoa, by Gary N. Calkins, Professor of Proto- 

zoology in Columbia University. (In Bulletin for 
November, 1907, p. 410.) 

5. The Philosophy of Loyalty, by Josiah Royce, LL.D., Pro- 

fessor of the History of Philosophy in Harvard Univer- 
sity. (In Bulletin for December, 1907, p. 460.) 

6. The Private Life of the Ancient Romans, by Morris H. 

Morgan, Professor of Classical Philology in Harvard 
University. (In Bulletin for January, 1908, pp. 28, 29.) 

7. The Early Church, by George Hodges, D.D., Dean of the 

Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge. (In Bulletin 
for February, 1908, p. 53.) 

8. The Early History and Recent Development of the 

Atomic Theory, by Theodore W. Richards, Professor of 

Chemistry in Harvard University. (In Bulletin for 

February, 1908, p. 54.) 

In connection with these lists, there also appeared from 

month to month the programme of the Lowell Institute 

Courses for the season of 1907-08, beginning with October, 

1907. 

The Bindery. 

Mr. Frank Ryder, Chief of the Bindery, reports to me the 
following statistics : 

Number of volumes bound during the year in various styles, 
30,761; volumes repaired, 1,897; volumes guarded, 522; maps 
mounted, 427; photographs and engravings mounted, 2,980; 
magazines stitched, 224; libraiy publications folded, stitched 
and trimmed, 74,949. A large amount of miscellaneous work 
has been done as usual. 

The total cost of operation of the bindery aggregated 
$25,942.01. If from this amount be deducted $2,191.80, the 
estimated value of the miscellaneous work done, there remains 
823,750.21, representing the cost of binding alone. This sum 
includes the binding of 2,230 pamphlets, 1,160 pieces of music 
and 179 broadsides in cheap covers costing in all $763. The 
total cost of volumes of books bound is therefore found to be 
$22,987.21. 

The Printing Department. 

The following comparative statement of the operations of 
this department has been compiled by Mr. Francis Watts Lee, 
Chief:

The Bulletins, regularly issued each month, and the other 
Library publications of the year, referred to in the statement 
of the Library Editor, and the Allen A. Brown Catalogue (so 
far as completed) have also been printed in the department. 

Distribution of Documents and Supplies. 

Mr. George V. Mooney, in charge of the Stock Department, 
reports that during -the year there have been 71,421 Libraiy 
publications distributed to the public ; and to the various de- 
partments, for official and public use, 2,278,000 blank forms, 
including 1,879,000 call slips. 

Registration. 

The statistical tables relating to the registration of borrow- 
ers, prepared by Mr. John J. Keenan, Chief of the Registration 
Department, appear in their usual form in Appendix VI. 
These tables give complete information as to the ages, sex, 
and distribution by wards of card holders. January 31, 1908, 
there were outstanding 79,662 active cards, an increase of 
2,880 over the number reported at the beginning of the year. 
The number of cards issued to replace others lost, spiled or 
filled was 43,133. 

Children's Department. — Central Library. 

The operations of this department, an important branch 
of the Central Library activities, have continued under the 
immediate direction of Miss Alice M. Jordan. From her 
report to me the following extracts are taken : 



Library Department. 41 



ISSUE. 

The past year shows an increase in the circulation of books 
from the Children's Department both directly to borrowers 
in the room and indirectly by daily issue through the Branch 
Department. There were 55,379 books issued in the room as 
against 51,373 the year previous, and 20,054 were sent through 
the Branch Department as against 17,262 in 1906. 

USE OF ROOMS. 

No estimate is possible of the users of the two rooms or of 
the books consulted in reference work by children and teach- 
ers. The marked attendance of adults in the Children's Ref- 
erence Room during the winter months was due especially to 
the collection of books on history and English literature 
shelved there temporarily for the benefit of students in the 
Lowell Institute-Harvard Collegiate Courses. These books 
have been extensively used and have required considerable 
care and attention. In this particular the Children's Depart- 
ment has shared in the general reference work of the Library. 
Of great importance also is the use by teachers of the perma- 
nent collection of educational books. The ease with which 
they may be consulted has been greatly appreciated.^ 

SCHOOLS. 

The Children's Department has continued its efforts to 
supplement the work of the schools so far as lies within its 
province. Twenty classes from the Boston grammar schools 
have received instruction at the Libraiy during the year; 
schools have been visited and parents' associations addressed. 
The establishment of perfect co-operation is slow, but each 
year shows progress. 

LISTS. 

Reqiiests for selected lists of children's books bring con- 
stantly increasing demands upon the department. While the 
"List of Books for BoyS and Girls," published in 1904, is still 
in print, and useful as a finding list, it fails to supply the needs 
of parents unfamiliar with the great mass of literature for 
young persons. Interviews with parents, and those with 
teachers, reflect the demand for short graded or selected 
lists. In part these requests are met by lists prepared to suit 
each case. A revision of the list of books on gardening was 
made for a second printing. 



42 City Document No. 25. 



STORY HOUR. 

To celebrate the Longfellow centennial a story hour for 
little children was held in the Lecture Hall on February 25. 
Miss Sarah Cone Bryant told stories, and about four hundred 
children formed the audience. Admission was by tickets, 
which were distributed through the schools in the vicinity. 

Bates Hall 

The Bates Hall Reading Room, as the principal reading 
room of the Library, is at times taxed to its fullest capacity. 
It is the reference centre of the Library, and its use in that 
respect constantly increases. During the year about half a 
million call slips for the table use of books have been used, 
and readers have also used 345,000 slips calling for books for 
home use. The maximum attendance of 322 readers at one 
time was reached on the afternoon of December 1, while at 
the other extreme is recorded the minimum attendance of 
91 on July 2L The average maximum attendance for the 
twelve months is 235, but since this figure is obtained by 
counting the number of readers at certain fixed hours, and 
individuals are constantly coming and going, it will be clear 
that the actual number of persons using the hall was much in 
excess of such an average. 

Although nearly 10,000 selected volumes are placed upon 
the permanent open shelves in this hall, available for use by 
readers without formality, only 55 have been reported as 
missing. The newest accessions to the general collection are 
placed upon open shelves here, temporarily, as received each 
week, for public examination, and only 52 volumes have been 
lost from these. 

The employees at the reference and centre desks have been 
faithful and efficient in attending to the wants of the public. 
The Reference Department is in charge of Mr. Oscar A. 
Bierstadt and his assistants. It is th-eir duty to point 
out the sources of information to the users of books, 
to help readers in every possible way, and to assist in 
the use of the card catalogue. They are required to 
answer thousands of questions in the course of their 
work, and, to serve the public acceptably, must possess 
not only a wide knowledge of many subjects, but complete 
information as to the resources of the Library. During 
the year a large number of letters is received requiring refer- 
ence work in reply, and this work is also performed by the 
attendants in this department, to whom the correspondence 
is referred. 



Library Department. 43 

The Centre Desk is in charge of Mr. Pierce E. Buckley and 
assistants, who have direct supervision of the Reading Tables 
in the Hall. The opportunity given to readers to have books 
reserved at this desk, obviating the need of repeated calls 
from day to day for books which are desired for continuous 
use, is apparently appreciated, since the number of persons 
availing themselves of the privilege continually increases. 

The Special Libraries. 

Mr. F. DeW. Washburn, first assistant in the Fine Arts De- 
partment, exercising general supervision of the Special Libra- 
ries, resigned September 8, 1906. Mr. Garrick M. Borden, of 
the staff of the Fine Arts Museiuii, was appointed to this 
position October 11, 1907, under an arrangement whereby he 
gave to us four-fifths of the regular service time, relinquishing 
one-fifth of the fixed compensation, and retaining for one- 
fifth of the time his connection with the Museum. This 
arrangement has permitted a certain amount of co-operation 
between the two institutions, while materially strengthening 
the Library staff. The work of the various departments in 
the group of Special Libraries may be seen from the following 
condensed individual statements. 

the fine arts department. 

Photographs. 

During the year the collection of photographs has been 
increased by the addition of prints, process pictures, and 
colored photochroms, bringing the aggregate number now 
shelf-listed to 18,865 photographs and 7,943 half-tones and 
other process prints. The figures do not include 251 pictures 
which have been placed in folios and given shelf numbers. 
These last include many portraits and historical pictures, and 
a set illustrating Alaskan and Esquimaux life. 

The process pictures especially are in great demand for 
school circulation, and the photographs are constantly em- 
ployed in class work in the Fine Arts Gallery and in exhibi- 
tions periodically arranged. 

Many new photographs and prints are still needed to fill 
gaps in the collection, especially American Art subjects and 
views of certain foreign countries now insufficiently repre- 
sented. 

Lantern Slides. 

The Library now possesses 2,158 lantern slides. These 
have been added from time to time for use in connection with 



44 City Document No. 25. 

our lecture courses, and have now been catalogued and may- 
be lent for school or other uses under such restrictions as may 
be necessary to preserve them in good condition. 

Circulation of Books. 

The circulation of books for home use from the Fine Arts 
Department continues to increase, reaching 17,282 volumes 
for the year, a gain of nearly 9 per cent, as compared with the 
preceding year. Of these, 6,257 were sent out through other 
departments. In order to obtain a figure indicative of the 
hall use of the books in the Fine Arts Reading Room a record 
was kept for one week in January. This showed an increase of 
about 500 volumes for the week as compared with a corre- 
sponding week in 1900. 

A new section for books on Chinese and Japanese Art has 
been formed on the reference shelves. Later editions have 
been substituted for some of the books in the reference collec- 
tion, and many out-of-date catalogues of noted picture gal- 
leries have been replaced by new issues. The periodical list 
has been revised and made more useful. 

Catalogues, Etc. 

The indexing of important articles relating to fine arts in 
current periodicals has continued. This index is found very 
useful to persons interested in the subjects covered. A large 
number of special catalogue cards have been filed. 

Circulation of Portfolios. 

The usefulness of the department in co-operation with the 
schools has been maintained and extended. The total number 
of portfolios of pictures sent to schools and study clubs has 
increased by nearly 100. 

There is a great difference in the relative demand for these, 
shown by the different schools. For example, out of 646 port- 
folios issued to 85 schools, about one-half went to 20 schools. 
During the year, 22 schools applied for pictures, never having 
received them before. The department, so far as its resources 
permit, is ready to extend all possible assistance to the 
teachers in this or in other directions within the scope of the 
subjects covered by it, and invites the largest possible use of 
its privileges. 

Visits of Classes. 

During the year 66 visits of study clubs were recorded in 
the department, with an attendance of 868 persons. There 



Library Department. 45 

were recorded,. also, 54 visits of private classes, with an attend- 
ance of 679 persons. These clubs and classes are assigned to 
tables, and material from the collection supplied freely for use 
in study under the direction of the teachers or conductors of 
the classes. 

The figures given do not include the constant visits of 
students from the Massachusetts Normal Art School, the 
Fine Arts Museum School, and other institutions in the 
vicinity. 

The work performed in this department is an important 
branch of the library service, and should be developed and

These figures indicate the important use that is made of the 
tables in the reading gallery connected with this room, and of 
the rare and valuable collections in the room itself. All of this 
service is of the highest grade, and the so-called ''reserves" 
represent books set apart for the use of persons engaged in 
authorship or serious research of a scholarly character. 

During the summer months of 1907 the entire collection of 
topographical maps was carefully examined, defects repaired 
and new covers provided. The stack books kept in the Barton 
Gallery have been re-classified. All the catalogue cards of

cabinets kept in the Barton-Ticknor room, and heretofore to 
be found only in the Fine Arts Catalogue Drawers, have now 
been completely copied for the Barton-Ticknor drawers. 
Arrangements have been made for the better preservation of 
broadsides in this room. 

ALLEN A. B^IOW^N MUSIC ROOM. 

For readers in this room, 6,601 volumes were issued during 
the year. The total number of volumes now contained in the 
collection is 10,805. 

The additions during the year were chiefly works of modern 
composers. The orchestral scores added include Bischoff's 
Symphony, Op. 16; Bossi's Intermezzi Goldomani; Franck's 
Redemption, and four overtures by Richard Wagner. The 
operatic scores include Strauss's Salome (full score); Mas- 
senet's Therese; Dukas's Ariane et Barbe-bleue; Messager's 
Fortunio; and Lehar's Die lustige Witwe. The gifts from 
Mr. Brown during the year number 211 volumes. 

The entire catalogue in this room has been re-arranged and 
re-labelled. 

LECTURES AND EXHIBITIONS. 

The free public lectures given in the Lecture Hall have been 
largely attended. Some of these were arranged in co-opera- 
tion with the Boston Architectural Club and with the Society 
of Printers. 

They have usually been co-ordinated with exhibitions of 
photographs and other material in the Exhibition Room of 
the Fine Arts Department. In some instances lectures of par- 
ticular interest to classes from the public schools have been 
repeated in the day time, for their especial benefit. The fol- 
lowing list shows the subjects and dates of the lectures and 
exhibitions :

Department of Documents and Statistics. 

This department is in direct charge of Mr. James L. Whit- 
ney. The number of volumes placed upon the shelves during 
the year has been 783; the entire collection now numbers 
14,714 volumes, exclusive of the Congressional documents of 
the United States and the Parliamentary documents of Great 
Britain. 

The gifts through the American Statistical Association, 
whose library is now in our custody, comprised 679 volumes 
and 2,197 numbers or parts of volumes. These have been 
received from various governments and societies and insti- 
tutions. 

By an Act of Congress, approved January 15, 1908, author- 
ity is given for the delivery of Congressional documents and 
reports of the United States to designated libraries as soon as 
issued. These publications as received by us are now placed 
within the reach of readers promptly, obviating the previous 
long delays. 

Manuscript Department. 

Mr. James L. Whitney, as Custodian of Manuscripts, 
reports that the use of the manuscripts during the past year 
has been greater than in recent preceding years; numerous 
visitors have come to the Library from distant places for their 
examination. 

A few purchases have been made of local documents and 
letters. Among the gifts received was a copy on parchment 
of the form of commission issued by the British Commissioners 
of Customs to the Custom Officers in Boston, before the Revo- 
lutionary War. A few impressions were printed from the 
original copper plate, which is said to be one of the few 
articles of antiquarian value which survived the destruction of 



50 



City Document No. 25. 



the London Custom House by fire in 1814. One of three 
copies sent to the Honorable Whitelaw Reid, American 
Ambassador to England, for institutions in the United States, 
has been given to the Library. 

Branches and Stations. 

The following details as to the work of the Branch Depart- 
ment are compiled from the report submitted to me by Mr. 
Langdon L. Ward, Supervisor. 



expenditures. 

The total expenditure for the branches and stations is 
),233.69, an increase of -13,513.95 over last year. Almost 
all of this increase is accounted for by the establishment of 
the Neponset and the Parker Hill Reading Rooms, and the 
raising of the Upham's Corner Reading Room to the status 
of a branch. Many of the branches and reading rooms have 
cost less than in the year 1906-1907. A careful analysis 
of expenditures would show that except where new agencies 
are undertaken or an enlargement of old ones made, the 
expenses of the branches and stations do not tend to increase 
materially from year to year, while on the other hand the 
amount of work performed steadily increases. 



circulation. 

The total circulation of the branches and reading rooms, 
including that from the Central Library, is 1,241,946 volumes, 
as against 1,188,856 volumes in 1906, a gain of four and 
two-tenths per cent. 

The circulation by classes of eleven branches for two years is 
as follows:

Juvenile non-fiction 


11.8 



The substantial gain in the issue of juveniles, both fiction 
and non-fiction, is due to several causes. One custodian says 



Library Department. 51 

in her report, "Four factors have contributed to make a gain 
in the juvenile issue: (1) restricted access, which fosters the 
use of the card ; (2) remission of fines incurred by those under 
sixteen, which has released 301 cards; (3) registration at 
schools, which advertises the branch annually among the 
children; (4) the generous supply of new, replacement, and 
additional copies of children's books." The last reason is 
probably the most important of the four. 

It is to be noted that fairy tales form an important and, as is 
generally allowed, a wholesome part of children's reading. 
One custodian reports that of the juvenile books issued in one 
month, 17 per cent, were fairy tales (the term includes folk- 
lore, myths, and hero-stories), and that this was more than 
the juvenile non-fiction for that month. 

In collections of 15,000 or more volumes, like those of the 
branches, the circulation is really based on a certain part 
only — the so-called " live " books — and it is an interesting 
question what proportion of the whole collection these con- 
stitute. It was found at certain branches that if live books 
were considered to be those that had circulated at least orlce 
during a year, the estimated proportion of such books to the 
whole was at one branch 46 per cent., at a second 55 per cent., 
at a third 56 per cent., and at a fourth 57 per cent. That is to 
say, at these branches at least 45 per cent., approximately, of 
the books have no direct relation to the home use. But these 
books include the reference books, using the term in a broad 
sense, and also the sets of bound periodicals. Many of 
the other books are too good in themselves to be discarded, 
and time is often lacking to transfer them and space to store 
them. Nevertheless, it is evident that the collections must 
be again materially reduced in the near future. The relative 
figures of -live books and circulation are interesting. At one 
branch, from an estimated number of 9,000 volumes of live 
books, or 57 per cent, of the total, there was a circulation of 
98,824 volumes for the year, that is, each volume went out 
theoretically eleven times. But actually the larger part of 
the circulation was from the books for younger readers, the 
popular fiction, and the new books of all kinds, perhaps from 
4,000 to 5,000 volumes in all. At one branch where the col- 
lection of books is less than 5,000 volumes and there is little 
dead material, each volume went out nominally sixteen times 
during the year. 

. DEPOSIT AVORK. 

The branches and the two largest reading rooms have sent 
out on deposit this year 16,352 volumes, distributed among 



52 City Document No. 25. 

124 places, as against 16,792 volumes, distributed among 112 
places last year. Of the total number of volumes, 12,285 
were sent to schools, as against 12,074 volumes in 1906. The 
number of schools suppHed has increased by ten, the number 
of teachers by thirty-two. That is, with practically the same 
number of volumes much greater results have been accom- 
plished. The books so thoroughly meet the needs of the 
schools that they are changed less often than formerly. In 
fact, the whole deposit work of the branches is increasingly 
satisfactory. They are reservoirs of supply for the schools and 
institutions of their districts. 

REFERENCE WORK. 

The relations with the school teachers, which grow closer 
year by year, the steady additions to the collections of refer- 
ence books, and the growing experience of the Library 
employees are all factors in the improvement of this most 
important department of the work of the branches and read- 
ing rooms. Each branch and station is visited in the latter part 
of the day by children from schools in the vicinity seeking help 
in connection with their lessons. At one grammar school the 
work of the custodian of the neighboring reading room as an 
unofficial instructor was recognized by her election at a 
teachers' meeting to an honorary membership in the teaching 
force of the school. 

As much reference help is given to adults as they desire. 
Some branches and reading rooms have been useful to neigh- 
boring study clubs, and to pupils of evening schools, who are 
largely adults. 

PICTURES. 

Pictures from the branch collections have been lent to the 
reading rooms, schools, and study clubs, to the number of 
9,626, as against 9,749 in 1906, and 4,849 in 1905. 

The portfolios of pictures from the Fine Arts Department, 
Central Library, issued through the branches and reading 
rooms to schools and study clubs have been mentioned on 
page 44 ante. There have been the usual useful monthly 
exhibitions of Central pictures at the branches and reading 
rooms, and a special exhibition during Old Home Week. 

The enlargement of the branch collections of pictures has 
gone on steadily. To encourage this a small yearly allowance 
for the purchase of material has been made to each branch and 
reading room. Most of the pictures added are naturally those 
asked for by teachers, and, as one custodian reports, are such 
as "illustrate industries, folk-lore, American history, etc." 



Library Department. 53 

Filing cabinets, in which the largest mounted pictures may 
be arranged in classified order, have been provided at most of 
the branches. 

BOOKS. 

The number of books added to the branches and stations is 
shown on page 19 ante. The needs of the schools make it 
necessary to have many copies of standard books. Hence in 
addition to new titles and replacements, during the latter part 
of the year approximately 4,000 volumes of duplicates were 
ordered for the branches and reading rooms; as well as 1,000 
volumes for the deposit collection. Only a part of them 
appear in this year's total. Included in these books were 
additions to the permanent collections of the smaller reading 
rooms of books in great demand for general reading, such as 
children's classics, both fiction and non-fiction. This was an 
innovation, for liitherto the permanent collections of the small 
reading rooms have consisted only of books for reference. 
Now they will have in addition to deposit books a small 
independent collection of books in every-day demand. 

A few months ago, the School Committee issued a pro- 
visional course of study for the elementary schools, and the 
books and poems mentioned in it began at once to be in great 
demand. Except in three or four cases, where the branches 
lacked any of these books, they were at once supplied, and 
existing copies were duplicated. 

THE SCHOOLS AND THE BRANCH DEPARTMENT. 

The total number of volumes sent on deposit to the 
schools this year from the Central Library and the branches 
is 19,555 volumes, as against 19,546 in 1906, and 19,092 in 
1905. The total, therefore, remains nearly constant. The 
number of schools, however, has increased, as well as the 
number of teachers supplied, and this is the real extension 
of the work. From the branches and reading rooms 358 
teachers were supplied this year, as against 326 in 1906, 
and 270 in 1905. Requests for books have come from the 
schools unsolicited, more freely and more promptly than 
ever before. The school circulation through the branches 
and reading rooms (estimated in the usual way) was 80,548 
volumes, as against 75,939 volumes the year before. Books 
have been reserved for the use of schools, at the branches 
and reading rooms, to the number of 1,985 volumes, on 121 
different occasions. 

As was noted in the last annual report, the work of the 
branches with the evening schools was systematized through 



54 



City Document No. 25. 



conferences with Mr. Lamprey, the Director. Last November, 
in a general conference between Mr. Lamprey and certain 
heads of departments, at which the Librarian presided, further 
plans of cooperation were made. These included talks on the 
use of the Library by Miss Jordan and certain custodians, 
and the sending of pictures. The conditions at the evening 
schools are so different from those at the day schools that 
some of the things which the Library undertakes in coopera- 
tion with the latter, and is prepared to do for the former also, 
are not recjuired. 

CENTRAL LIBRARY ACTIVITIES — BRANCH DEPARTMENT. 

Deposit Work. 

Books have been sent from the Central Library on deposit 
to 122 places, as against 117 in 1906-07. The number of 
volumes sent is 35,951, as against 34,049, the year before. Of 
the total this year, 7,270 volumes were sent to schools. The' 
percentage of fiction in the books sent on deposit was 43.8. 
The number of volumes in the deposit collection is 31,038, a 
gain of 1,136 volumes since Januaiy 31, 1907. There have 
been condemned 1,084 volumes. Of the additions, 976 vol- 
umes were books for children, 592 volumes were fiction for 
adults. In other classes the largest number of additions 
were in history and science. The estimated circulation of 
the books of the deposit collection is 106,046, as against 
87,337 in 1906. 

Daily Issue. 

The daily issue of Central Library books on cards sent 
by applicants through the branches and stations amounts 
to 86,181 volumes, which is an increase of 6,918 volumes over 
the previous year. The gain is in fiction, as was the loss the 
year before. There have been no undue additions of fiction, 
"however, to the Central Library this year. 

The classified issue for two years is as follows :

The percentage of fiction in the issue is necessarily high. 
Much of the juvenile fiction is of a high grade, and exactly 
the books children ought to read, in fact, to a- considerable 
extent, the books that the schools prescribe for them. 

Binding. 

The following figures represent the binding clone through 
this department :

Books bound in Bates Hall style: 
Branch and station books .... 1,441 2,102 

Of the 5,003 volumes of Central Library books, 2,486 
were from the deposit collection. 

The bindery clerk has received and disposed of 2,455 
volumes of condemned books from the branches, as against 
1,756 in 1906. 

As the collections of books at the branches and reading 
rooms grow, and as the use at these agencies and the schools 
increases, the number of volumes that come to binding and 
to be condemned will inevitably increase. 

Inter-Library Loans.

other libraries and the instances in which this Library has 
been a borrower:

There have- been added to the files 304 volumes of patents, 
bringing the aggregate number of volumes in the department 
to 10,170. The attendance and use of the room has increased 
as compared with the preceding year. The number of 
persons using the room was 5,954, as against 2,856 in 1906-07. 
There were 58,317 volumes consulted, as against 57,868 for 
the former year.

periodicals supplied to readers during the day, and 13,990 
during the evenings or on Sundays. These compare with 
23,835 and 13,580, respectively, during 1906-07. 

There were regularly filed in the several classes of periodi- 
cals currently taken, at the close of the year, 1,477 publica- 
tions, exclusive of Government and State publications and 
Library bulletins. 

The Newspaper Room, Central Library. 

Mr. Pierce E. Buckley, in charge of this department (as 
also of the Patent Department), has submitted to me a report 
relating to the current use of the room, and of the files, from 
which the following extracts are taken. 

The number of papers now on file in the reading room 
is 355; this does not include the trade newspapers and 
magazines, of which there are 93. Six papere were added 
during the year. 

The attendance of this room is always large ; the maximum 
for the year was 194 on October 27, 1907. A new table 
has been placed in the room to accommodate the women; 
it was needed badly to relieve the congestion which for- 
merly existed. A new case placed behind the attendant's 
desk will accommodate all the papers of the large cities, 
and the attendant will thus have within reach the most 
important papers most called for by the public. 

files. 

Early in the year the files room was equipped with extra 
shelving, making it possible to shelve 1,500 additional volumes. 
All the Boston papers, and in fact all papers preserved by 
binding, are in this room. All the sets are now placed to- 
gether, and, as now placed, there is room for more than ten 
years' growth. There were 221 volumes added to the files, 
making the total number of volumes in the room 6,651. 

This room was largely used during the year, 4,656 persons 
consulting the files, as against 2,380 for the preceding year. 

A list of all the duplicates has been made, including those 
which were at the Brighton Branch. In many cases breaks 
in our files can be made up from these volumes. Where 
the bindings and papers were superior to ours, the better copy 
has been substituted. 

Through an exchange we have received from .the Library 
of Congress 39 volumes of the Chicago Inter-Ocean. 

A large number of 18th century papers have been added 
to the files, largely through an exchange of our duplicates

with the Massachusetts Historical Society. From that so- 
ciety we received 67 Boston News-Letters, 50 Boston Ga- 
zettes, 142 Boston Evening Posts, 227 Boston Weekly Post 
Boys; in all there were 507 old papers added. A card 
check list of the 18th century papers has been made. 

The maximum attendance in the Newspaper Room upon 
selected days in each month is shown in the following table; 
the record was made at 5 o'clock P.M. on each day:

The following record of the number of books issued for 
home use on Sundays and holidays is compiled from the 
report of Mr. Frank C. Blaisdell, Chief of the Sunday and 
Evening Service. 

SUNDAY AND HOLIDAY* CIRCULATION. 

Sundays 

February 22 

April 19 

The reading room use of books on Sunday and during 
the evenings continues large. The reference work, of which 
we keep no statistical record, is apparently increasing, and 
fully occupies the staff employees who are in charge of it. 
The character of the use of the Library at this time plainly 
shows that a considerable number of persons who would not 
be able to visit the building on week days or in the daytime 
make diligent use of the Sunday and evening privileges. 

Resignations. 

The following resignations from the service have been 
received during the year:

Mrs. Nathaniel P. Beaman, 

Subsequent meetings of the committee were held on 
October 17, November 13, and January 15, 1908. 

At the final meeting (January 15) reports were received 
from the various sub-committees, and, after discussion upon 
them, they were given to the Chairman to be used by him 
in preparing the report of the whole committee. 

The Chairman herewith submits an abstract of these 
reports : 

The Library is in admirable condition, an institution of 
which the citizens may be justly proud. Large as is the 
appropriation annually made to it by the City Government, 
more money could be used to advantage, and it is to be hoped 
that the stream of bequests to its permanent funds, for 
special or general purposes, will not cease. 

Books. — The books are housed, arranged, and distributed 
in excellent fashion, and this in face of the fact that the 
present unoccupied book space has been obtained by resort- 
ing to the expedient of turning the basement to account for 
the stacking of books and documents least in demand, a pur- 
pose that part of the structure was not intended to meet. 

It is recommended, as soon as practicable, that metal 
book-frames with glass shelves be substituted for the present 
ones made of wood, a change which would increase the room 
for books, and decrease danger from fire; that woodworking 
machinery and paint materials be removed from the build- 
ing; that automatic fireproof doors be placed to separate the 
stacks wherever practicable, and that one of the employees 
receive appointment as a Fire Inspector, whose duty it shall 
be to visit every room of the Libraiy daily, to see to the 
proper disposition of waste, and to the order and condition 
of the fire appliances. The employees might occasionally 
receive instruction in the use of the hose and extinguishers. 

In Bates Hall some seats placed nearer the delivery desk 
would be serviceable, and a few more lights for those seeking 



62 City Document No. 25. 

books on the shelves would be of use. The case marked 
"New Books " might be kept more distinctly up to date. 

Branches. — The branches appear to be conducted with 
financial economy. The salaries of the younger attendants 
might perhaps be graded a little higher. The employees 
are found to be uniformly courteous and efficient. In many 
of the sub-stations the persons in charge are of great help to 
the children, understanding and sympathizing with their 
needs. More attention, however, should be paid to the venti- 
lation of all the reading rooms, and, indeed, also to many 
rooms of the main building. The Committee realize the 
difficulties attending the problem of securing sufficient fresh 
air, but hope that eventually those difficulties will be over- 
come. 

Catalogues. — The Catalogue Department continues in 
excellent condition. The Cooperative Catalogue experience 
proves to have been little used, and steps towards its 
discontinuance are now wisely in progress. The commend- 
able readiness of the attendants of this department to help 
all persons who have occasion to use its facilities has been 
favorably noted by many visitors. In view of the cost of 
card catalogues, it is to be hoped that further steps will be 
taken by librarians looking toward the ultimate standardiza- 
tion of the entire cataloguing system. American publishers 
could then, acting through a committee of expert cataloguers, 
prepare the proper cards for each book issued, and sell them 
to the libraries of the country. 

Finance. — The financial system under which moneys are 
received and expended in the Public Library leaves nothing 
to be desired. By a most careful system of checks and 
balances, the funds are accounted for and regulated. 

Binding. — A large amount of work is done in this depart- 
ment, and it includes much rebinding, and the mounting 
and binding of architectural prints. The quality of the work 
is entirely satisfactory. It is impossible to compare with 
absolute precision the cost of the binding done with what it 
would be if put out on contract, yet the Committee is satis- 
fied that even if the cost is somewhat higher the advantage 
to the Library in durability of output and convenience 
more than offsets any difference. 

Printing. — The making of the cards for the catalogue 
appears to be done with marked success both in composition 
and expedition. But the equipment of the department is 
one-sided. There is a large capacity in machine composi- 
tion, while the press work is restricted to a single cylinder, 
which is not of the style best adapted to the work required. 



Library Department. 63 

It is the opinion of the Committee that there is a real need of 
a new press in order to increase the output of printing with- 
out any material increase in the cost of labor. 

The danger from fire seems great in the printing and 
binding office. While ample fire-escapes are provided for 
the safety of the employees, a fire starting in any part of the 
building would probably destroy the whole of it. The 
Committee recommends securing quarters in some more 
fire-proof building. 

It is suggested to future examining committees that the 
usefulness of sub-committees might be increased if they 
could confer with the heads of departments, and have the 
benefit of their experience. In some cases this plan was 
followed, but it might be the general practice. 

In closing this report the Examining Committee wishes to 
express its full appreciation of the remarkable effectiveness 
of the Library machinery, the perfect adjustment of its parts, 
and the entire absence of friction in the different depart- 
ments, which are correlated in a noticeably smooth and 
harmonious manner. 

The Committee realizes that its suggestions can scarcely be 
met without increased funds. That so much is accomplished 
in keeping the Library up to the highest standard of useful- 
ness is a matter for unstinted praise. A spirit of wise and 
discriminating economy is everywhere apparent. 

In this connection the Committee also wishes to endorse 
the policy of a judicious limitation in the purchase of ephem- 
eral fiction, to the encouragement of a taste for better and 
more permanent literature. 

The Committee can only regret that a larger proportion of 
the community does not even yet fully comprehend the won- 
derful resources of the Library and its admirable methods of 
service, and how completely equipped it is to meet not only 
the most advanced demands of schools, study classes of all 
kinds and technical students, but to furnish the best general 
reading for the masses. It is hoped that in the near future 
a wider knowledge of the real value of the Library may in 
some way be extended to the public, with a view to better 
acquaintance with its fine educational collections so easily 
accessible. 

The Committee desires to thank the officers of the Libraiy 
for the full opportunities given to investigate its methods 
and aims. 

Reuben Kidner, 

Chairman.

APPENDIX VIII. 



TRUSTEES FOR FIFTY-SIX YEARS. 

The Hon. Edward Everett was President of the Board of 
Trustees from 1852 to 1864; George Ticknor, in 1865; William 
W. Greenough; from 1866 to April, 1888; Prof. Henry W. 
Haynes, from May 7, 1888, to May 12, 1888; Samuel A. B. 
Abbott, May 12, 1888, to April 30, 1895; Hon. F. 0. Prince, 
October 8, 1895, to May 8, 1899; Hon. Solomon Lincoln, May 
12, 1899, to October 15, 1907; and Rev. James De Normandie, 
D.D., elected January 31, 1908. 

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 citi- 
zens at large, two of whom retired, unless re-elected, each year, 
while the members from the City Council were elected 
yearly. In 1878 the organization of ,the Board was changed to 
include one alderman, 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 Mayor.
