This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

THE LIBRARY AND READING-ROOMS. 

OPEN EVERY AFTERNOON AND EVENING 

FROM 2 TO 9 O'CLOCK. 

EXCEPT ON SUNDAYS FROM 3 TO 9 O'CLOCK. 

THE LIBRARY 15 CLOSED ON HOLIDAYS. 



The lower reading-room is for the use of all persons who ob- 
serve the common rules of good behavior. • 

Newspapers, popular journals, mechanical, manufacturing and 
building periodicals may be found in places prepared for them. 
Bound sets of Harper's Magazine, of the Atlantic Monthly, of 
Popular Science Monthly, of some other periodicals, of some 
Cyclopaedias, and other books of reference may be found on the 
shelves. These may be examined freely and should be returned 
to their places in good order. Poole's index can be had in either 
reading-room on application. 

A limited number of the more popular periodicals will be cir- 
culated for short periods of time (some for three days, a few for 
seven days) as soon as they are received. 

Almost all periodicals are bound as soon as the volumes are 
completed and are then circulated as books. 

Minors, properly recommended by parent or others who will 
be responsible for them, may have cards and the full use of the 
library. 

It is desired to emphasize the fact that persons looking for 
special information, not readily found, will, on application, be 
gladly assisted to books by the Librarian, or may have, for limited 
periods, special facilities in the use of the resources of the 
library. 

CATALOGUES. 

The Catalogue of 1881, containing the larger portion of the 
books of the librai^, for sale at the desk, in paper covers, for 30 
cents. Copies of the annual supplements will be given as long 
as they last, to purchasers of the Catalogue. 

Single supplements, 5 cents. 

The Fiction Catalogue, in paper covers, 10 cents. 

The Fiction Catalogue, in flexible cloth, 25 cents. 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE FREE 
PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



In their report of another year of the library's history the 
Trustees are contined to a brief statement concerning the con- 
struction of the stack-room. This work, begun in August, is 
now practically conlpleted. It is estimated that the change will 
more than double the capacity of the library for the storage of 
books: certainly, it will be many years before the question of 
space will have to be considered again. 

The progress of the work has involved changes in heating, 
lighting and plumbing and has suggested other improvements 
which it is the purpose of the Trustees to carry forward in keep- 
ing with the improved character of the building. In their plans 
are included the furnishing of the large reading room in the new 
section built by Mr. Hunnewell, and a change in the color of the 
interior of the delivery room. 

They are encouraged to V>elieve that the money for this extra 
work will come from private sources and that no request will 
have to be made to the town. 

As a matter of much importance to the library, the Trustees 
would ask the town to consider the purchase of the land adjoin- 
ing the library lot and now owned by the heirs of Samuel 
Walker. In their opinion, it would be a mistake to allow this 
land to pass into other private ownership. 

The death of Mr. A. C. Stock in takes away another early 
Trustee of the library, his service covering the years 1872-1884, 
during which time he acted for two years as Secretary of the 
Board. 

Reference is made to the very full report of the Librarian for 
the executive portion of the year's work, and to the Treasurer's 
report for details of the finances. 

An appropriation of $4,500 and the dog tax is asked for the 
regular expenses of the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. H. BLSTIX, Jr., 

Chairman.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



lo the 7 rus tees of the Free Public Library of Watertown :-^ 

Gentlemen, — In reporting to you the condition of the library 
and reading-rooms and their contents, and in reference to the 
various duties imposed upon him and the various interests en- 
trusted to him, your Librarian would beg leave to submit the fol- 
lowing statements, as briefly as may be, in accordance with the 
requirements of Article IX. of the revised rules and regulations of 
the Library. 

Before proceeding to take up the details of my report, allow 
me a few words of tribute to the memory of one of the library's 
early friends and most earnest supporters, now recently passed 
away. Abner C. Stockin was elected to your Board in March, 
1872, and served until 1884, twelve years, — two years as your 
secretary. He was in public and in private, everywhere an ear- 
nest, — a strenuous, — advocate of liberal support to the library. 
Actively engaged in improving and introducing the best educa- 
tional works, especially into the schools, present at all great edu- 
cational meetings and in sympathy with the spirit of the most en- 
terprising and progressive, and in touch with the best educational 
leaders of his time, he was ever desirous that our young people 
should be furnished with the best helps and incentives, and es- 
pecially that our library, which his own children used, should do 
its part well in building up the character of the young and in 
furnishing their minds with the rich treasures of literature which 
might be for them a lasting and an enjoyable possession. 

He was always genial ; his face flushed with good nature ; he 
was helpful in conversation ; and with an unfailing fund of good 
stories, he was always prompting to good thoughts and good 
deeds. His cheering presence we often enjoyed as he sat at the 
tables among the young people during many an afternoon of his 



libraeian's report. 9 

last declining years, even until within a few days of his finai and 
sudden call to other scenes. He loved the library, he loved to 
linger within its precincts. 

CHANGES IN THE BUILDING AND ITS ROOMS. 

It is not necessary to remind you who have had so much to do 
with the changes going on in the building, or the general public 
who have borne with great patience the inconvenience of the 
temporary arrangements made imperative, that my assistants 
have worked during the whole of the past year at considerable 
disadvantage in performing their ordinary duties. They desire 
to serve the public as fully as possible. They do not complain of 
the difficulties which must be apparent to all, hoping soon to see 
realized the improvements which will be of so great use and such 
a delight to all. 

With the mass of books re-arranged in the new stack, with the 
stock of reference books increased and well brought up. to the 
present condition of knowledge and progress in the various de- 
partments, and located in the shelves of the new reference read- 
ing-room where the best facilities for reading and study should be 
furnished, with the separate quarters for children with their own 
books for free selection and use in the children's rrK>m, with 
the Pratt reading-room freed from the presence of the youngest 
readers who will be better cared for elsewhere, we may 
soon hope to see the library entering upon a new period in its 
htstor\', a period which promises more for valuable educa- 
tional work than any \et experienced The iiSrary in this town

thirty public libraries. It has always kept this origin in view 
during its whole history, and now in its latest form of develop- 
ment will be better fitted than ever to do in this town whatever 
will help most towards the education and the upbuilding of its 
people. 

THE NEW STACK AND NEW CLASSIFICATION. 

The new stack, now about completed, will for many years en- 
able the library force to arrange books in a logical and usable 
manner, so that whatever is on hand on any particular subject 
may be easily found together. The work of re-classifying our 
more than twenty-six thousand volumes has been begun and is 
being carried on as rapidly as our means will allow. We 
shall be ready within the present year to publish a new finding 
list of biography, history, geography and travel, if the town 
will furnish the printing. Another year, we shall be ready with 
a similar list of science, literature, religion and philosophy, in- 
cluding the new science of sociology with its many branches now 
developing in the work of reform, political and social, education, 
and general improvement, which the new spirit of the time is 
pushing on so rapidly. 

PRINTED CATALOGUES. 

The re-arrangement of fiction was made four years ago and a 
new fiction catalogue was then printed. The edition of five 
hundred copies is now nearly exhausted. A new edition which 
should contain the additions of the last four years will probably 
be soon demanded. 

These special lists are less pretentious, less costly than a large 
full catalogue, and will serve a purpose fairly well. The full card 
catalogue, which can be used only in the library building, how- 
ever, is kept well up to date. We, in common with the other 
libraries of the country, are about to receive great help from 
printed cards furnished through the American Library Associa- 
tion by the National Library at Washington, now under the 
management of Mr. Herbert Putnam, who will have every new 



librarian's report. 11 

book published in the country as it is presented for copy-right 
properly catalogued, and who intends also to catalogue prominent 
foreign books. This will enable us to give more personal atten- 
tion and assistance to our readers. 

LIBRARY AGENCIES. 

The agency at East Watertown has taken on a new activity 
and bids fair to reach a larger number of people. We have 
during the past few weeks sent five times as many books as the 
average of the past year. 

The people at Bemis have shown, as far as we know, no inter- 
est in a similar movement in that part of the town. ' They are 
probably waiting for the initiative of some interested person. I 
have no doubt that an agency once started there would soon, by 
the advantages we could easily give the people, win their hearts 
and prove a blessing. Of course, as a matter of right, taxpayers 
in that part of the town are entitled to the advantages we could 
give them. It would, too, be a further extension of the work of 
our library. 

Probably before our library was established there was no great 
popular call for it. A few people thought it well to establish a 
library, and they gave of their means and induced others to give 
of their means, till six thousand dollars was raised to offer to the 
town on condition that the town would expend it for books, pro- 
vide a place to receive them and furnish persons to care for them. 
But even at this stage one of the prominent town's clergymen 
said *' there was evidently a great state of unpreparedness for such 
an institution" in the town. Fortunately, there were people who 
were not disheartened by such pessimistic views, who went for- 
ward to establish what this town would not now willingly give 
up, and probably ftw other towns in the state would be willing to 
give up. 

This consideration has its bearing on the establishment of an 
agency at Bemis, or in any other portion of the town remote from 
the central library. I am of the opinion that we might establish 



1'2 libkarian's ebport. 

practical agencies in each large school, as we have partially and 
practically done in the High school. Forty-five books, carefully 
selected by the teachers of that school, were just sent to this 
school. 

SUNDAY OPENING OF THE LIBRARY. 

The Sunday opening of the library proves to be useful to quite 
a large number of people during a large part of the year. During 
June and a portion of September, when the warm weather invites 
to out of door enjoyment, the number of frequenters of the library 
is so greatly diminished, that it may be well to lengthen the sum- 
mer closing on Sunday duringthree or four months rather than the 
two months of July and August. The Sunday readers in the up- 
per portion of the building have been restricted to the one small 
room which we propose to devote to the children. This, in a 
measure, accounts for no great increase in the number of Sunday 
visitors, as well as for a decreased use of reference books at the 
library during the past year. When the cases are removed from 
the other portion of the upper reading-room, and especially when 
the new larger reference room is furnished and opened for public 
use, we may confidently expect a larger number of Sunday read- 
ers as well as an improvement in the* character of the hooks read. 

ADDITIONS OF NEW BOOKS. 

By Appendix i it will be seen that a larger number of bound 
books has been added during the past year than for several years, 
although not a larger number has been purchased. The larger 
increase is due to the large number of periodicals bound, three 
hundred and forty-nine (349) volumes having been obtained in 
this way by binding several thousand periodicals. You have 
completed the set of the Scribner's Monthly,' the Century, Har- 
per's, the Atlantic, the American Naturalist, and the Popular 
Science Monthly for the Pratt reading-room, besides adding to 
several other sets. I hope you will obtain a special appropria- 
tion for the binding of one each of the best daily papers of Boston 



ijbrakian's report. 13 

and New York, a long file of which we have with some difficulty 
tried to preserve during the renewal of our building. A file of a 
good newspaf>er of a hundred years ago would be invaluable to 
the student of our past history. It is a duty to try to preserve 
something of the perishable but valuable historic material of the 
present for the use of those coming after us. 

The preparation of the valuable indexes which William F. 
Poole started, has made the contents of sets of periodicals avail- 
able and valuable, and I hope we may go on completing some 
sets which are still imperfect, especially in the earlier portions. 

ASA PRATT FUND. 

Our library is fortunate beyond most libraries in towns of the 
size of ours in the possession of this useful fund. Its founder 
planned for its perpetual increase, and rising generations will 
bless the name of the dutiful son who modestly affixed his father's 
name to what he thought might perpetuate that name as of a use- 
ful citizen and a faithful worker. There is an opportunity for 
any man's son to do likewise and thus secure the kindly wishes 
and gratitude of unborn generations. Our library has several 
great needs of funds which we would be willing to disclose to any 
philanthropically disposed. 

It is possible to fill considerable shelving with our valuable 
bound sets of periodicals which are good for reference. It will 
be seen that the principal of the Pratt Fund is now over $6,700, 
and that we are this year using $175 of the income for the pur- 
chase of periodicals. This will soon be increased to $200. 

ART CLUB EXHIBITS. 

We have had fewer exhibitions this year than usual, for want 
of space to properly show the pictures. The number of such ex- 
hibitions of excellent photographs will correspondingly increase 
with the completion of our rooms. 



14 librarian's report. 

READERS. 

It will be seen by the same Appendix (i) that the number Of 
perHf>nfe who have taken out cards is larger than for any year since 
ihe prst one, when the number was only 776, not twice as large 
an this year. This increase is due partly to an increase in the 
number of those using the East Watertown agency, but more 
probably from the accession of younger book-takers, you having 
removed the age limit. It is possible now for any child whose 
parents will be responsible for his or her use or abuse of books 
to have a card and choose such books as he or his parent or 
teacher decides desirable. 

And who shall say that a child of eight or ten years even may 
not choose as wisely or read with as great edification under a par- 
ent's or an earnest teacher's direction as a person who has reached 
the a{<e of manhood or womanhood, who reads, as many do, 
merely for entertainment. Practically, I see no objection to the re- 
moval of the limitation of age. 

THE children's ROOM. 

We have made a beginning. I wish we had a larger store of 
clean, well illustrated and instructive books to put into our new 
shelves. I have no doubt that the testimony of those who have 
tried the experiment will prove true in our case, that children will 
choose better books where they can look them over and select for 
themselves. The clioice of the room, a choice which the children 
have for the want of a better already made for themselves, is not 
an ideal choice. A larger room would be better for them and 
less troublesome for older readers if it were more remote from the 
general delivery. If a larger room, well lighted and well fur- 
nished could be found in the basement with a separate entrance 
at the side, or even the rear, it would provide well for the 
younger readers and interfere less with adult students. 

Perhaps we shall have to wait for such a room, a room ideal 
- jjjg jind in location, until some generous son of the town pro- 



librarian's report. 15 

vides the means for the other wing on the East side. We do not 
forget that the ideal building for which the architects have already 
furnished the plan uses all we have now, but extends the build- 
ing by an East wing as a counterpart to the West wing now 
completed. It would not require a very large bequest to make 
this ideal real. 

The present structure however, will for some years to come, if 
it is fully utilized provide for the pressing needs of the library 
and make it possible to render a inuch greater service to the 
public than ever before. 

APPROPRIATIONS. 

In view of the great needs of the children's room and of the 
new reference room for a larger stock of new books to enable 
them to do their proper work, and for printed catalogues for use 
at home and especially at the agencies, I huve looked over the 
matter of town expenses, especially the school and library appro- 
priations for the last thirty-three years to see if the library was 
keeping pace with the growth of the schools and of population. I 
have made a table showing for each of these years, in order, the 
total town expenditure, the amount appropriated to schools and 
the amount appropriated to the library. I have also included ex- 
traordinary expenditures in separate columns, as for instance, the 
amounts expended for school buildings and library building. 
I have also added a column showing what percentages the 
library appropriations are of the school Appropriations. This 
shows the fluctuations in the support given the library. If 
the library appropriation had increased in the same ratio as that 
for the schools, and this is only in propoition to the demands of 
an increasing population, we should now have granted to us 
considerably more than for the past few years. 

I give a part only of this table here, the part that shows the 
percentages of library to school appropriation. This was for 
1868, only a half year of preparation, 6 3-10 per cent of the

ist 10 yrs. .990 2d 10 yrs. 1.228 3d 10 yrs. 1.285 

An average of .099 per cent for the first 10 years. 
Average .123 for 2d. 10 years. 
Average of 1.285 ^^^ 3*"^ '^ years. 

Of course the small percentages of the first ten years should in 
reality be increased by the cost of heating, lighting, and caring 
for the rooms which the Town generously granted without ex- 
pense to the library appropriation. Likewise the young library 
had the use without cost to these appropriations, of more than 
six thousand dollars worth of new Vjooks, and a half as many 
more given by the earnest friends of the young institution. So 
the small percentages noted in the table were even more effective 
than the somewhat larger percentages of the last ten years. 

These figures are eloquent, if one notes their variations and 
reflects upon their meanin^r. For instance in 1879 some one 
thought a thousand dollars quite enough for the Library. The 
next year the Town voted the largest percentage in its history. 
This rate one-tenth of one percent above that of 1891, but more 
than Hive per cent above that of 1898, would have given for the 
last year nearly seven thousand dollars. The average for the 
third period of ten years would have given the library $5,202, 
instead of $4,000 and the dog tax. 



librarian's report. 17 

An increase of a thousand dollars in the appropriation could 
not be burdensome, and it would provide for the printing of the 
new finding list of history, biography and travel, beside adding 
materially to the stock of new books. 

CIRCULATION. 

Appendix i shows an increase in home circulation of books, 
indeed it shows that the library has surpassed itself in all former 
years. The margin is not large however. That the number 
consulted in the rooms is smaller than for several years past, is 
due to the small space available for such work and to the disorder 
and confusion incident to the necessary work of mechanics 
making the alterations. 

With the new reference reading room devoted to its proper 
work and properly furnished, we may expect to see the amount 
of this work very largely increased as well as its quality raised 
to a higher standard. 

Appendix 2 shows the circulation by classes, the percentage 
varying through narrow and yet significant limits. That the 
percentage of fiction and juveniles is a little larger than last year 
can be understood without fearing a continued increase. This 
table reflects the condition of the opportunities for choice which 
we have been able to ofler. 

SUNDAY SERVICE. 

Appendix 3 shows Sunday by Sunday the number of people 
visiting the Library. These numbers include both rooms where 
separate accounts are kept. It is possible that the same person 
may be counted sometimes in each room, though not if we know 
that a person passes through one room to get to the other. 

DONORS. 

Appendix 4 shows that the Library is remembered by its 
friends in the way of donations of books, pamphlets, and papers 
and to what extent, it gives a list of the donors with the number 
of volume** or other publications given by each.

LIST OF PERIODICALS. 

Appendix 5 shows a few changes in the list of periodicals 
taken. It is desirable to continue the files of the best ones that 
we by binding may have continuous sets for reference. Several 
new and attractive additions have been made to the list, notably, 
Country Life, published in London ; Brush and Pencil, 
published in Chicago ; Murray's New Monthly Review, and 
World's work. The Critic and Camera Notes and the Boston 
Cooking School Magazine were added to the list last year. 

We have continued to receive a supply of excellent covering 
paper as a gift from the Union Bag and Paper Company. This 
by the courtesy of Mr. Frederic H. Robie. 

I cannot not allow this opportunity to pass so soon afler the 
loss by death of our faithful janitor, without speaking a word of 
deserved praise of his long and improving service. Beginning 
as a boy of scarcely a dozen years as a helper, he came in the 
last years to do far more and better than any who have before 
served us in this capacity. Not strong in body he made up by 
faithful endeavor and constant application. This too during the 
last two years when necessarily the demands upon him were 
greater than ever before. 

HOPE FOR GREATER USEFULNESS. 

In closing this report I express the confident hope that we 
shall during the coming year see the building completed, all its 
parts furnished and put into full working order; see the books 
re-classified and re-arranged in the new stack, and at least one 
additional list of books printed and in use, that of history, biog- 
raphy and geography, including travels; see the children's 
room and the new Hunnewell Hall — the new reference reading- 
room — furnished and occupied as a student's room ; and, on the 
whole, see an increased use of the entire library. To this end we 
need as large appropriations as the Town can grant. We can use 
any amount of additional help from benevolent individuals, for 
new books, notably for reference books, including science, art. aiul

music. The opportunity for the wise use of money was never 
greater in the history of the library. 

I wish to thank my assistants for hearty cooperation during 
the past year, under at times trying conditions and bespeak for 
them your hearty support. The amount of work must increase 
and probably the number of helpers also. 

Thanking you for personal aid and long continued courtesy, I 
respectfully submit this my thirty-third report of our progress 
with the hope and prayer that you may not be hampered by in- 
sufficient means in the complete finishing and furnishing of all 
the rooms of our building. May this work be so well done that 
it will be a pleasure and pride to our citizens, as ever to you 
who have taken so much interest in its accomplishment. 
Respectfully submitted, 

SOLON F. WHITNEY, 

Librarian,

NOTE. 



Certain reference books, iucluding bound sets of Harper's magazine and other 
periodicals, may be found on the open shelves of each reading room. These should 
be carefully used and returned to their places. 

In th« new Hunnewell hall, our new reference reading room, will be found a 
large number of reference books on a great variety of subjects. This room, when 
open, will be for the use of students or any one reading the books of the library 
for information. The periodical and newspaper reading rooms will be main- 
tained as before. 

Those who find it tedious looking through the nineteen printed supplements be-

EEPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THE FREE PUBLIC 

LIBRARY. 



There have been no changes in the work of the library diu"! ng 
the year. This report, therefore, must deal with the progress and 
-completion of plans for the improvement of the building itself 
with which the year began. 

A new room for the meetings of the trustees has been made in 
the rear of the building, beneath the stack-room, leaving the 
large room in the basement of the new section, which was tem- 
porarily occupied by the Trustees, for such uses as the future 
shall determine. 

A necessary change in the color of walls and ceiling of the 
delivery room has increased the attractiveness of that room and 
will add to the comfort of readers. 

Early in the summer, Mr. Frederick B. Pratt, of Brooklyn, 
N. Y., visited the library. This visit resulted in a gift of $2,750 
for alterations in the Pratt reading-room and better equipment 
for its special work. 

In addition to the gift from the estate of Charles Pratt, the 
Trustees are indebted to other friends of the library for money 
with which to forward the furnishing of Hunnewell Hall. With 
the exception of this room all the work undertaken within the 
year has been completed. 

The library has now greatly increased its capacity for useful- 
ness, and it is to be hoped that greater demands will be made 
upon it. 

By the will of the late Benjamin H. Pierce, a bequest of 
$1,000 has been made to the library. It is the opinion of the 
Trustees that this bequest, when received, should be named the 
**' Benjamin H. Pierce Fund," and the income be used for the 
purchase of books. 



4 REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 

Miss Lois G. Fitch, resigned from her position as Second 
Assistant, in August, and Miss Lydia W. Masters was chosen 
to fill the vacancy. 

An appropriation of $4,500 and the dog tax will be needed 
for the expenses of the coming year.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the Public Library of Watertown : — 

Gentlemen, — The past year has seen considerable changes 
in the interior appearance of our library. The building has not 
been closed to the public, although the public has sometimes 
been put to some inconvenience in getting books and especially 
in consulting papers and other periodicals. This fact is reflected 
in the smaller number of books consulted in the reading-rooms 
and in the smaller number of periodicals read on Sundays as 
well as on week days. That the library, however, has not been 
less useful to the people on the whole is shown by the fact that 
there has been quite an increase in the number of books issued 
for home reading. This increase has been 15.8 per cent, larger 
than the last year, which was larger than it had ever been before. 
If we include the number of books read in the library which I 
have said for various reasons was smaller than usual, still the 
•whole number of books in use during the year is larger than 
it has ever been before, being 11.28 per cent, larger than last 
year. The number issued for home reading will be seen by 
Appendix I. to have been 43,321, the number consulted in the 
reading-rooms besides dictionaries, cyclopedias and other works 
to which people freely help themselves, and so are not counted, 
was 3,058, making the entire number counted 46,379 against 
41,086 last year. 

The population of Watertown is increasing, now over 9,000 ; 
of course the library should give increased facilities for reading, 
and will easily be able to do so in time with its larger rooms and 
its growing collection of books and periodicals. As you will 
describe to the town what changes you have already made 
and what further changes you propose to make in the arrange- 
ment and the furnishing of the rooms of the library, it will not 



S librarian's report. 

be necessary for me to enter more fully here upon this matter, a 
subject that has occupied much of my thought for several years. 
I would suggest that when the improvements are complete, we 
take some public notice of the fact by a formal opening, a re- 
ception to the donors of funds used, an exhibition of the facilities 
of the library for the work which it is hoped to do with the 
cooperation of all good citizens. 

STACK COMPLETED. 

Now that the new stack is at last completed and furnished, the 
librarian and his helpers are working early and late to finish the 
re-classification and consequently the re-location of the more 
than twenty-seven thousand volumes belonging to the librarv. 
These volumes have necessarily been moved several times in the 
process of classification, changing the old numbers and marking 
the new, in which processes requiring much handling, any dust 
that had accuinukled, notably on some of the best of them, has 
been pretty thoroughly shaken out, while the old association of 
volumes according to si;ttj and date of purchase has been replaced 
by a kinship of subject matter which is conducive to ease and 
pleasure in use^ 

NEW CLASSIFICATION. 

As a library grows in numbers, minute classification becomes 
more and more imperative. We feel that we have adopted a 
system of classification, "^ the expansive classification," which 
will never need to he changed, except in minor details, although 
the coUection of books may expand to the hundreds of thousands. 
Our people have gracefully submitted to some delays and other 
inconvenience in getting books during the necessary changes, 
and we shall have to ask them for a few months longer to call 
for books by the name of the author and the title of books desired, 
rather than by the old numbers hitherto in use. 

CATALOGUES. 

The call numbers on the cards of the public catalogue will 
now be quickly changed, and such new printed lists as the town 



librarian's report. 9 

may direct and make special appropriation for, even if for a full 
new catalogue, may now be had, as little but the work of a type- 
writer will be required to make it ready for the printer. People 
living at a distance from the library feel the need of a printed 
catalogue. 

We have had a Fiction Catalogue, printed five years ago, 
which has been in such demand that the copies are now entirely 
exhausted. Half the circulation is from books in this list. A 
new edition is called for. The purchases of the last five years 
might be incorporated. 

PRINTED CATALOGUES. 

If the library were a private corporation, the new edition would 
of course be printed at once, for the success of the library as an 
investment would be seen to depend largely upon it. There can 
be no doubt of the wisdom of printing other lists of books, nota- 
bly the one we have been making preparation for, " History, 
biography, and travel." The work of cataloguing and re-classi- 
fication has gone so far that it is possible to prepare copy for the 
printer, not only of the new edition of the Fiction list, but also a 
Catalogue of children's books, and the Finding list of history, 
biography and travel, during the spring and summer months, and 
^ven a complete catalogue of the entire library. While five hun- 
dred dollars would pay for the former, say a thousand dollars 
would pay for the first three, the entire catalogue would probably 
be a matter of fifteen hundred or two thousand dollars for the 
printer. These are rough estimates, accurate enough for con- 
sideration while determining whether the town cares to invest so 
much in addition to the necessary amount required for the regular 
purposes of a rapidly growing library. 

SUPERIOR FACILITIES IN THE LIBRARY BUILDING FOR READERS. 

We can dispense with all printed catalogues if readers them- 
selves will come to the library to select their books. Those who 
use many books, especially all who wish to see all the books 
they can on any given subject, must come to the library. They 



10 librarian's keport. 

will find ill the full card catalogue the full list of separate works 
on any subject, and by the use of Poole's indexes, can find refer- 
ences to the large collection of periodicals which the library is 
accumulating, and by sitting down in the reference rooms with 
the various encyclopedias and dictionaries in addition to the books 
on the reference shelves, and those previously mentioned, will 
* find themselves in an atmosphere more favorable to a growth in 
knowledge, more inspiring to original thought, more conducive 
to the writing of papers for other's edification and enjoyment than 
under less favorable surroundings. 

ADVANTAGE OF KNOWING WHAT MANY WRITERS HAVE WRITTEN. 

One cannot aftbrd to be original while ignorant of what others 
have thought and said on any subject. One might as well spend 
in his own factory or workshop or in his own study his days and 
nights in working out some curious or useful invention without 
consulting the volumes of the United States patents in our Patent 
room, to find when his models and drawings and specifications- 
wrought out with never so much cunning and art during no mat- 
ter how great privation and self-denial reach the examiners* 
rooms in Washington, if when he has paid the cost of such exam- 
ination he has to learn that several inventors have been all over 
the work before him and perhaps have offered some more in- 
genious solution of his problems, some more simple or more use- 
ful device to accomplish the same purposes. He has misapplied 
a part of his time. He has gone through a process of thought 
useful to himself, it is true, like ploughing in the sand for exer- 
cise, if it does not discoui-age him from trying more wisely again,, 
but he has missed his expected reward. So with the writer or 
converser who does not first inform himself as to what others 
have thought or written on his subject. Originality of thought 
is a mark of genius if it goes beyond the thought of others. It 
is often grotesque and ludicrous if it falls far behind it. 

NEW REFERENCE ROOMS. 

Our growing people will have fine opportunities, fine incentives tCK

wholesome growth in our new reference rooms. I could almost 
wish to live my youth over again to see what use I could make 
of the richly illustrated and scholarly works that I in my mind's 
eye already see filling the cases of these rooms and offered freely 
to all who have the wit to use them. Blessings upon the heads 
of the men and women of means who have contributed of their 
substance to provide a building, and furnishings, and the books 
themselves, to make such opportunities for youth possible. 

I once spent ten days or so in that paradise for the scholar who 
is looking up the fullest information in regard to almost any sub- 
ject. No library in America is so full of information on Ameri- 
can history as that of the British Museum. And no place per- 
haps in the wide world is so full of the spirit, and the facts, and 
the inspiration most conducive to the writing of any part of 
American history, to specify a single topic, as the study tables of 
the great circular reading-room of the British Museum. An 
immensely voluminous catalogue gives the clue, and the army of 
attendants put any volume at once upon your table at your ser- 
vice. What the reading-room of the British Museum does for 
London and its visitors from all parts of the world, our reading- 
room in a smaller way will try to do for our smaller numbers of 
people here at home. 

For those who desire such service as a traveling library would 
give, or expect while at home to send to our library for books by 
messengers or by the agencies, a printed catalogue is a neces- 
sity. The people, however, must vote to pay the price of printing 
as an extra, if they wish this necessary aid to home study . 

SPECIAL NEED OF FUNDS FOR BINDING. 

I should remind you that a decent sense of self-respect, to say 
nothing of the policy of preserving what will otherwise rapidly 
deteriorate in value, requires us on taking our books of reference 
from the alcoves when they are partially hid among their fellows 
to the open shelves of the reference reading rooms where they 
will be handled more frequently and by less skilled hands, to have 
their bindings well looked after and many of them replaced by 
more comely and more durable materials. The press of the past 



12 librarian's report. 

year has put off too, the binding of our periodicals, so that we 
shall have the accumulations fof two years to bind. We have 
some papers that should be put in binding or they will become 
useless. It seems to me that we should be prepared to spend 
eight hundred or a thousand dollars alone in binding during the 
coming year. 

LIBRARY SERVICE. 

I wish to thank my assistants for continued patient constant 
service during the year. The courtesy demanded at the table in 
answering the varied calls of all people is very well understood 
and appreciated. Not so well the patient research and painstak- 
ing labors of the little understood work of the cataloguer, classi- 
fier, and keeper of accounts. But the climax is reached in the 
work of getting ready for the binder any considerable number 
of periodicals. One long used to such work says the seeming 
monotony and yet the infinite diversity of numbers and parts 
each to be found and put in its exact place, produces after a cer- 
tain time, like the constant dropping of water upon a hard rock, 
an eflfect well nigh destructive to the strongest nerves. Long 
continued, it would lead to nervous prostration. This work, I 
should confess, however, will be greatly simplified by the new 
cases of drawers you are having made. 

I would like it understood that I value the labors of a faithful 
janitor. The work may be unappreciated. Some one has said 
that "it is easy to provide a preacher to fill the pulpit, or a 
teacher to fill a professor's chair ; but the good janitor has to be 
born to his work." His best work is out of sight where no one 
sees. All faithful work is honorable and should receive proper 
recognition and recompense. 

AGENCIES. 

The agency at East Watertown has continued its new and 
increased activity. Considering how little service our catalogues 
give to people, compared with a complete card catalogue or even 
with such lists as we expect to have, we ought to be encouraged 



librarian's report. 18 

to continue. The failure of the express messengers to connect 
or to carry the baskets with regularity is also a little discouraging 
to book-takers. 

In April, an agency was started at Bemis station. This has 
for the first year been fairly successful. In all, 1713 volumes 
were sent to East Watertown, and 289 volumes were sent to 
Bemis during the year 1901. 

SUNDAY OPENING OF THE LIBRARY. 

The changes at the library, the work going on in the rooms, 
and especially the closure of the Pratt Reading-room since early 
in December, has caused quite a diminution in the number who 
have frequented the rooms on Sunday. We may hope to see 
an increase in the number of students and readers from among 
those whose hands are occupied during the week, after the rooms 
are refurnished with cases and these are filled with useful books. 

It may be well to encourage children even to frequent the rooms 
on Sunday afternoons, partly to take them from the street, partly 
to lead them to form the habit of reading from the pleasure they 
may find in it, but I must confess that I find more satisfaction in 
welcoming to our reading tables the tired mothers even with 
their young children, with finety illustrated and entertaining 
books or periodicals, or the men young or old who employed 
during the week find this almost their only opportunity to refresh 
or inform their minds by coming even for a brief period in con- 
tact with the world of books and book makers. 

ADDITIONS OF NEW BOOKS. 

By Appendix I, it will be seen that a larger number of books 
has been purchased than for any other one of the last ten years. 
This is true, although long lists of names of people, twenty to 
fifty in number, are waiting patiently their turn to take out one 
of a dozen or more of our more popular stories. Of one of 
these we have seven copies, of the others, several copies. It is 
not possible for a small library like this to buy up books by the 
hundreds of copies as the Mudie Library in London does as a 



14 libbarian's report. 

matter of gain, to sell again at greatly reduced rates when the 
demand is over. Nor is it expected of us that this library should 
send around its books to the doors of its readers and return to the 
library the books no longer wanted. A larger appropriation for 
new books might however leave more money in town, might 
provide books more economically for our readers than they can 
provide for themselves. I must confess that I view, if not with 
alarm, yet with jealous eye the visits of private parties who are 
doing for gain the work we can easily do for our people. 

NBW BOOKS AND HOUSE DELIVERY. 

We might do as some other public libraries are doing, furnish 
extra copies of new books to people who are willing to pay a 
small sum for special choice or special delivery. One or two 
cents a day for immediate use of a few of the books in greatest 
demand, the demand limited only by the desire of the book-taker, 
would please a few who are willing to pay the small price, and 
would in no way interfere with the privileges of the regular 
unpaid circulation, for the books so used would be in addition to 
the regular purchases, would be quickly paid for by the special 
fees received, and when the call slackened would swell the num- 
ber for general use, and finally would be disposed of at reduced 
prices to any purchaser. I believe a few enterprising experi- 
ments in a small way might be safely made to the increased use- 
fulness of the library. We have twice only sent books on call to 
the school-houses of the town. The school-houses are so near, 
because the town is so small, that many prefer to come to the 
library to make their own selections. When we have printed 
new catalogues there may be a greater demand for delivery at 
the school-houses, as well as at the agencies, to say nothing of 
private houses. 

ASA PRATT FUND. 

This Fund has yielded $175 each year for the last five years for 
the purchase of periodicals. For the next five years the income 
-will be $200 each year. This increase no more than equally 



librarian's report. 15 

keeps pace with the increase in the production of and demand for 
this fresh and valuable class of literature. The list of periodicals 
purchased thus is given in Appendix V. Several beautiful and 
useful additions will be noted in the list. The principle of the 
Fund is now nearly $7,cxx>. 

THE BARRY FUND. 

This small fund has not yet been drawn upon. Its amount is 
therefore increasing. It has been suggested that it would be in 
keeping with the tastes and wishes of the donor to expend the in- 
come of this fund for valuable reference books to be added to the 
more permanent collection to be put upon the shelves of Hunne- 
well Hall reference reading room. Such disposal might be an 
incentive to oth«r benevolent persons who might desire to remem- 
ber their own town in the disposal of their accumulated property. 

ART CLUB EXHIBITS. 

These have been few in number the past year from want of 

room to show them. The' number of valuable photographs 

belonging to the Art Club to which our library belongs, i scon- 

stantly increasing, and they will be shown when there is proper 

opportunit)'. 

children's room. 

We have gone far enough to see that with the furnishing of 

suitable tables and chairs, the room at our disposal will be far 

from adequate in size. However, it will, even small as it is, 

prove a great boon to the children themselves and a relief to the 

readers in the other rooms. I have had to discourage children 

under twelve years of age from occupying the room designed for 

their future use, until it is furnished for them and until the rooms 

on the lower floor are opened to their elders. The present room 

will prove useful, when opened for this use, for a while at least, 

and will demonstrate the wisdom of making in the no distant 

future, provision for them in the basement of the new east wing, 

by which some benevolent son of Watertown will be moved to 

carry out the design of the architects in our completed building. 



16 libbabian\s report. 

APPROPRIATIONS. 

It is not necessary, though it might be wise, to repeat the argu- 
ment and exhibit of the last annual report in favor of enlarged 
appropriations. If, as there shown, the average in library appro- 
priations be made about Z2^ per cent, of the school appropria- 
tions, it would be now over five thousand dollars. I do not see 
how we can without detriment to the interests of the library do 
with less. Special needs made imperative by generous special 
private donations just now call for more. Of these donors you 
will say what you deem wise and just. 

GIFTS. 

Appendix 4 gives a list oPall donors, except doners of money, 
with the number of books or pamphlets which they have given. 
I should not fail to mention the fact that our representative in Con- 
gress, Hon. Samuel L. Powers, has secured the appointment of our 
library as a public depository of government documents, which se- 
cures to us fine leather-bound copies of nearly all the scientific and 
illustrated volumes published by our general government. We 
have already received a score or more such, which give maps and 
plans, photographic views and minute descriptions of our new 
possessions in Porto Rico and the Phillipines, as well as the scenes 
of operation of our forces in Cuba and in China. The last volume 
contains hundreds of maps minutely picturing the proposed deep 
water ship canals to connect Chicago and the cities of the West 
by the chain of lakes, and then through the rivers and lakes of 
New York to the Hudson, and so to the Atlantic Ocean. 

We have also received some valuable volumes and pamphlets 
from the State University of New York. Some of these are rare 
works on edible mushrooms ; some are on home education ; 
showing what the great state is doing by aid of libraries and 
pictures, to further the influence of literature and art in the homes 
of its people. 

The publishers of the Cambridge Tribune, the Newton Jour- 
nal, the Newton Graphic, Elliott's Magazine and Good Roads, 



I/IBRABIAN'S bbport. 17 

the New Church Messenger, the Christian Register, Our Dumb 
Animals, Tuft's Weekly, What to Eat, and the Watertown En- 
terprise, send regularly the periodicals which they issue. The 
Watertown branch of the Christian Temperance Union send 
regularly the Union Signal. Many libraries and colleges send 
regularly their published bulletins and reports. These and oth- 
ers are included in the tabular list of donations in Appendix 4. 
We hope to publish bulletins to exchange. 

I would like to acknowledge here the continued gift of excel- 
lent covering paper from the Union Bag and Paper Company by 
the courtesy of their agent, Mr. Frederic H. Robie. 

In closing, I must say that I cannot but hope that the town 
will appreciate and do all they can to make most profitable the 
earnest and long continued labor you have given to the improve- 
ment, to the almost reconstruction and re-furnishing of our build- 
ing, and the selection of books for its shelves. No one can 
understand the value of such labor better than I, who am so 
much in it all. The best work can find no fitting reward, it is 
true, except that which comes from the consciousness of doing 
good. But still more prompt and full action by others might 
encourage you. I would remind you that the Town is not 
insensible to the obligation they are under to those who so zeal- 
ously promote the general good. They have never refused to 
appropriate all the money you have ever asked for. They are 
more than willing to vote you the appropriations you deem can 
be wisely used in the education of their children or themselves. 

Thanking you for long-continued courtesy, I humbly submit 
this, my thirty-fourth annual report.

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THE FREE 
FUBUC LIBRARY. 



The library's work for the year has been free from the 
interruptions that had attended it during the alterations to the 
building. Within a few weeks of the printing of our last 
report the tables and cases were put into the new room, thus 
completing the plans begun in 1900. 

At first it seemed doubtful if this additional ^space could be 
supplied with books, but a creditable showing has been made 
with the reference books and bound volumes of magazines and 
reviews that have been put upon the shelves. In the purchases 
for the year regard has been given to the needs of this room, 
which in time musibecome most attractive to readers and students. 

All the changes and improvements in the interior of 
the building have been under the direction of Mr. Charles Brig- 
ham, and through his efforts money has been received which 
has made it possible to go beyond the first plans. 

No reference can be made to these matters without recalling 
the death of Mr. Hollis H. Hunnewell, which occurred in May 
last. In his contribution to the original fund and recent con- 
struction of the new section of the building, Mr. Hunnewell has 
proved himself the library's most generous friend. 

In the settlement of the estate of Mr. Benjamin H. Pierce 
the trustees have received eight hundred dollars ($800). This 
sum has been deposited in the Watertown Savings Bank, and 
if has been voted to treat this bequest as a fund, and to use the 
income for the purchase of books. 

The necessity of printing a new fiction catalogue, and that 
some attention should be given to the library grounds, warrants 
the trustees in asking for an appropriation of fifty-two hundred 
and fifty dollars and the dog tax. 

William H. Bustin, Jr., Chairman.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the Free Public Library of Watertown : 

Gentlemen : The use made of the improvements in the 
library building justifies the expenditure of the town and its 
friends as seen in the experiences of the past year. The feeling 
of security in the fire-proofing of the stack room gives more 
confidence in the permanency of the results of our labor on the 
collections of books, and the convenience of the shelving will 
become more evident as time goes on, both to those who labor 
on the arrangement of books and to those who wish to consult 
the library's collection of works on any given subject. 

The re-classification has gone on as rapidly as the more 
immediate and pressing interests have allowed ; and will, we 
hope, be completed the present year. 

The other rooms of the building have shown their adapti- 
bility to the work which is expected to be done in them. We 
may except the children's room, which is not ideal in size or in 
location, or yet in its furnishings. But the children are making 
very free use of their privileges, and would often fill the chairs 
twice over were they not crowded out into the adjoining spaces. 
It is frequently necessary to study how to accommodate fifty or 
sixty children at four tables with less than two dozen chairs. 
When some are sent into the periodical reading-room below or 
elsewhere they may have a feeling of disappointment that either 
children's books must be taken with them or that they must con- 
tent themselves with what is provided for their elders. I confess 
I do][not see just how best to provide for their wants without 
more space and without more assistance, especially on stormy 
Sundays. 

The collection of Patent Office publications is now in a 
room by itself, and must be of great value to our ingenious 



LIBRARIAN S REPORT. 7 

mechanics and inventors through all the future years. I know 
that all who might profit by its uRe are not yet aware of the extent 
of our collection, for not infrequently is surprise expressed on 
sight of the Patent room. How shall we best make the extent 
and character of this collection known to possible inventors? 

The Pratt reference room is being filled with works most 
valuable in their use on the social sciences and the useful arts. 
The shelving and furniture of this room are admirable and will 
last for a long period of time. 

The Hunnewell Hall has its shelving filled with useful 
books of reference. These will naturally change, in many 
lespects, as we have funds to purchase newer or more specific 
works. 

I should somewhere name the accessions to the shelves of 
this room which were purchased from the income of the Barry 
fund. This mention would have a double value if it should 
stimulate any to found other funds. 

Books purchased with a part of the income of the Barry 
fund are as follows : 

Gardens old and new, vol. 1 and 2. 

A finely illustrated edition of Natural history and antiquities 
of Selborn by Gilbert White. 

The furniture of our forefathers by Esther Singleton in two 
volumes quarto. 

Colonial furniture in America by Luke V. Lockwood. 

History and description of Chinese porcelain by Cosino 
Monkhouse. 

American gardens edited by Guy Lowell. 

Oriental rugs by John Kimberly Mumford. 

The Century book of gardening edited by E. T. Cook. 

These are all beautifully illustrated and, being rather large 
books, should be consulted in the library. They will form a part 
of the collection of books of art arranged in the glass cases in 
Hunnewell Hall. I shall be glad to insert the new engraved 
book plate when it is prepared. This bookplate will be a pleasant 
reminder of the source from which the funds were obtained for 
the purchase of each book containing it, as well as of the genial 
and benevolent founder of the fund. No books have as yet been 



8 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

purchased from the Benj. K. Pierce Fund. I may record the 
pleasure with which Mr. Pierce used to show me some literary 
antiquity and hope that his funds might go to celebrate the 
history of the past or his interest especially in gardening and 
farming. 

Our accession catalogue records the fact that Mr. Benj. H.' 
Pierce's first gift to the library was on the 20th of April, 1872, 
and I well remember the pleasure expressed in his face as he 
gave me twelve numbers of Tilton's Journal of Horticulture, and 
some rare numbers of the annual reports of the town officers 
of Watertown, some of them early numbers, earlier than any 
that were in the town house. He came occasionally, when asking 
for books, with some interesting historic document. 

Both his and Mr. Barry's final gifts were preceded by an 
exhibition of their lively interest in the library. Mr. Barry's 
first gift was a " Legal adviser of the business man," and three 
volumes of the " Common School Journal," edited by Horace 
Mann. This was followed by other educational and historic 
works. Our accession catalogue preserves the record of all 
gifts to the library of books and pamphlets or papers. It 
is a history of the kind feeling of the citizens of the town 
towards this library. It is our largest and most important book 
of records, for while it thus preserves much personal history, it 
contains a complete record of the acquisition of each and every 
book and other publication now in the library, whether purchased 
or given. We have filled one large volume and are half way 
through the second volume, and they thus far account for 
purchases and gifts of 28,369 volumes and 20,027 papers and 
pamphlets. 

Agencies of the Library* 

Books have been sent twice a week to East Watertown, as 
they were called for. The numbers have not increased as rapidly 
as I have expected. I think the calls for books from the homes of 
the people will not greatly increase until we print more catalogues. 
Those who come to the library may find in the card catalogue 
every title and author in the library, can find the books grouped 
under appropriate subjects, they can also find the new books in 



I^IBKARIANS REPORT. 9 

separate open shelves, and if children, they can examine their 
books until they are pleased; but our catalogue printed in 1881^ 
with its more than twenty supplements, is growing each year by 
one more supplement, with its different alphabet, more and more 
discouraging. There is no use in trying to forget this. If people 
are to make a selection of books in an expeditious manner with- 
out coming to the library, new catalogues must be printed. 

Catalogues* 

We could be ready in a few days or weeks at longest to- 
print a new edition of the fiction catalogue, the first edition of 
which was printed six years ago, and is now out of print. The 
five hundred copies are gone. The catalogue should be enlarged 
to contain the purchases of the last six years. 

What has been said in former reports of the necessity 
of printing at least aMist of biography, history and travel i& 
emphasized by each year's delay. 

Appendices* 

The statistics of growth of our collections and of their 
comparative use are given at the end of this report, with the list 
of books added during the year. 

I proposed to myself to make a much shorter report this- 
year than usual, that the town may be the more willing to print 
the needed catalogue. 

I wish however to thank Mr. Fred H. Robie of the Union 
Paper and Bag Company for his courtesy in keeping up our 
supply of excellent covering paper. I have had good service and 
much enthusiasm in good work from my assistants. I hope. all 
appreciate their good intentions and earnest efforts to realize a 
better library service. Especially is this true of our new janitor^ 
whose service deserves commendation. 

You will see from the first appendix that the number of 
volumes purchased this year, while smaller than last year, shows 
well in comparison with former years. We have added a large 
number of volumes by binding a considerable portion of our 
accumulation of periodicals. The work has been well done ; the 



10 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

volumes thus obtained are very valuable. Will it not be well to 
continue this with the next year's accessions, and the binding of 
at least two files of newspapers ? We have the Boston Transcript 
and the New York Herald for more than a dozen years. I should 
hope to include these another year with a slightly increased 
allowance for binding. 

This library having been made a government depository at 
the solicitation of our member of Congress, the Honorable 
Samuel L. Powers, is constantly receiving an accession of leather 
bound volumes, some of them of great value. Pamphlets, bulletins 
-of the various government departments are coming in considerable 
numbers. All these volumes and pamphlets come in registered 
packages according to printed lists, as to other depository 
libraries. 

The circulation, as you will see by figures in appendix one, 
is smaller than last year. 

These numbers take no account of the use of books in the 
reading rooms, the children's rooms or the reference rooms. 
About three thousand of our more expensive books, including 
encyclopaedias, dictionaries, and leading works on a great variety 
of subjects, are on the shelves of Hunnewell Hall. There are 
nearly three thousand volumes, not yet completely arranged, on 
the shelves of the Pratt reference room in the lower hall. These 
are on the various branches of the social sciences and the useful 
arts ; including with others sociology, economics, statistics, 
education, political science, law, agriculture, mechanic arts and 
engineering, domestic science including cooking. This room 
will contain a valuable collection of works which must be of use 
to practical men and women, and is such a collection, I think, 
as Charles Pratt would like to recommend to the young who 
are lo do the thinking and labor of the future. 

The books of our children's room, over a thousand in number, 
must wear out rapidly, and I have no doubt you will replenish the 
store from the finely illustrated and inexpensive books now 
produced by a large number of publishers. 

In closing may I ask you if you know how to induce the 
citizens of the town generally to come to the library in larger 
numbers to see how great reason they have for taking pride in 




librarian's report. 11 

the building now enlarged and admirably furnished, in the books 
on the shelves and the periodicals on the tables and in the racks, 
in fact, in all that is offered for their use and enjoyment. Only 
by the co-operation of all can the greatest good be accomplished. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Solon F. Whitney, 

Librarian.

Report of Trustees of the Free 
Public Library. 



The increase in the population of the town and the diversity of 
interests caused by the complex civilization of the present day con- 
tinually tend to change the scope of the library, and to extend the 
field of its usefulness. That the library has felt, and responded to 
the demands made upon it is manifested by the greatly increased 
facilities for enjojrment and mental culture that it now extends to 
its patrons. 

It is, of course, impossible for the trustees, with the money en- 
trusted to them by the town, to provide all the desirable books and 
magazines that are published, but it is their aim to supply as far as 
possible the needs of both the scholar and the reader for pleasure. 

The fiction catalogue has been completed during the year and is 
now offered for sale at a nominal price. Each family, whose mem- 
bers are interested in this class of literature, should buy a copy, as 
it contains a well arranged list of all the fiction in the library. 

The grounds about the library have been graded, and covered 
with loam. This long deferred improvement has greatly added to 
the attractiveness of the library grounds, and was well worth what 
it cost. 

A telephone was put into the library on the first of February, and 
the patrons of the library can now obtain information from the libra- 
rian, and reserve or renew books without putting themselves to the 
inconvenience of going in person to the library. It may be possible 
in the future to make some arrangement whereby books ordered by 
telephone can be delivered at the reader's house without too much 
expense to the library or the individual. 

It is the intention of the trustees to print a catalogue of biogra- 
phy, history, and travels during the coming year. Although this will 
be much larger than the fiction catalogue they expect to print it 
without asking for a larger appropriation than was granted last year. 

The trustees do not feel justified in asking for an increased ap- 
propriation, although several hundred dollars could be spent to ad- 
vantage on binding. They ask the town to appropriate for the var- 
ious needs of the library fifty-two hundred and fifty dollars and the 
dog tax, which is the amount of last year's appropriation.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the Free Public Library of Watertawn : 

Oentlemen : — The year just closing has been for the real work 
for which the library was established, the most active one in the 
thirty-six years of its history. The work of enlarging the building, 
refurnishing shelving and apparatus for the storage and care of books 
and periodicals having been nearly accomplished, attention has been 
given to the exhibition of the resources of the library, to the re-clas- 
sifying of its volumes, the rebinding of its i>eriodicals, the publication 
of the new edition of the fiction list, the preparation necessary to the 
publication of the Biography, History and Travel list, and to meet- 
ing the requirements of our growing number of readers. 

The largest gift of books has come from our national government. 
By the courtesy of our representative in Congress, Hon. Samuel L. 
Powers, our library has been made a government depository of public 
documents. This has given us very many valuable scientific and other 
volumes numbering two hundred and ninety (290), and nearly 
as many (266) pamphlets. These contain valuable matter for refer- 
ence and use, almost all of the volumes being bound in full sheep. 

The Isaac B. Patten Post, Cx. A. R., has given to the public library 
their set of the history of the " War of the Rebellion '* from the 
" Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies." This is 
now stored in our fire proof stack room, a fitting place for so valuable 
a work of reference, said to have cost over a million of dollars to 
prepare and to print. 

We have added 159 volumes already by binding our regular files 
of pamphlets and papers, while quite a number more are in the pro- 
cess of binding. Some of them are among the most valuable addi- 
tions to the library. 

The financial statement of the Treasurer shows how moneys have 
been appropriated. 



ubrarian's report. 7 

The Librarian has in constant mind the duties imposed upon him 
by Article IX of the Rules and Regulations of the library, and with 
the help of his able and faithful assistants has strenuously endeavored 
to comply not only with the letter, but also with the spirit of these 
requirements. 

All records have been kept faithfully as in former years. 

As custodian of the property of the library he has taken the ut- 
most pains to preserve it and save it from unnecessary deterioration. 

There is one duty imposed upon him for which he would like to 
ask assistance. Feeling the limit of his powers as well as the impos- 
sibility of his assistants doing all that must be done to get the best 
results, he would humbly and earnestly ask of all, whether readers 
or prospective readers of this collection which he sees is daily grow- 
ing in extent, in variety, in value, the hearty cooperation of all to 
the end that the library may extend more widely and more deeply, 
the benefit it is capable of doing. Will each and all who desire to 
use the resources of the library make known their wants to the 
Librarian or his assistants, as he and they propose the coming year 
with such aid to increase the use and usefulness of the library. Let 
each ask for anything. We will get them what we can. Some of 
the best books are little read. They must be sought. A gold 
mine must be worked to get gold, and worked by gold miners them- 
selves to give results. 

With this purpose in view, the Librarian is glad that the library 
has been connected with the New England Telephone circuit, and 
would suggest that any one be allowed to call for books or periodi- 
cals which might be retained a certain limited time, say a few hours 
or a day, the same as if the call were made in person for a book 
or periodical. 

I would also suggest the propriety of establishing a system of de- 
livery of books for a small fee within convenient distance. In some 
places it has been found practicable to deliver books for a few 
cents (2 or 3) each, to be paid by the person calling. 

We have delivered books for several years at the East Watertown 
Railroad station and also at the Bemis station free twice each week. 
We have sent to East Watertown station 1,251 volumes during 
the year, and 793 volumes to Bemis. We could send twice or thrice 



8 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

as many with little increase in the cost. When we get more new 
catalogues in print we may expect more frequent calls for other books 
than fiction. 

I would advise free delivery of books once or twice a week at any 
of the more distant school houses, or at any factory where books are 
wanted in considerable numbers at stated times. I know you are 
desirous that the benefits of this library may be distributed as widely 
as possible. 

The publication of at least one additional list of the most used 
books is called for in the interest of this greater use of the library. 
Yet, in this connection, while we express a wish to meet temporary 
and limited demands, by brief printed lists, we should not fail to 
try to impress upon all the greatly superior advantage of using, in 
the library itself, the full card catalogue, if time and opportunity 
will allow. 

In appendix one will be found a statement arranged in tabular 
form, so that a comparison can be easily made of the growth and 
use of the library. It will be seen that the increased number of 
volumes added to the library during the last year over the preceding 
ten years has been kept up, and that the store of periodicals is in- 
creasing. The list of periodicals subscribed for or contributed by 
the Asa Pratt Fund, or by the Magazine Club, or by individuals, is 
indicated in appendix 5. 

Appendix 2 gives the extent of the circulation during the different 
months of the year for each of the eighteen (18) principal classes of 
books, as well as the total library use of the same classes of books 
for the year. 

In regard to the extent of the use of books in the library it should 
be said that these numbers record only those calls made at the desk. 
The very large use of books in the children's room is not recorded. 
Here the seats are crowded, especially on Sunday afternoons, so that 
the settees of the delivery room are frequently all occupied while 
older children and young people are given seats in the reference 
rooms, lliese children are very active in examining a very large 
number of books. 

There are two or three thousand books on the wall shelves of the 
Hunnewell reference room, which are consulted freely by an in- 
creasing number of people. No record is taken of such use. Thus 



librarian's report. 9 

although the number, 1359 is the recorded number of books used in 
the building, this number should be doubled or trebled to show the 
actual number of books used in the building. 

The numbers of books and pamphlets or papers given to the 
library during the year are indicated with the names of the givers 
arranged alphabetically in appendix 4. 

The publishers of the Tribune Enterprise, the Cambridge Trib- 
une, the Newton Journal, the Newton Graphic, the Christian Regis- 
ter, Our Dumb Animals, What to Eat, Tufts Weekly, and a large 
number of libraries mentioned in supplement 4, have continued to 
send us their publications for our use free of charge. 

I should mention also in this connection the constant supply of 
excellent covering paper furnished us for many years, through the 
courtesy of Mr. Frederic H. Robie, by the Union Bag and Paper 
company. 

In looking over the list of books added during the year one can- 
not fail to see that all kinds of readers have been provided with in- 
teresting books and periodicals. 

If I should begin to describe them I should perhaps weary the 
patience of those who think the town reports already too long. I 
may remark that you have added *84 volumes of fiction, a part of 
which are among the best of the newer works, a part new editions of 
worn out volumes discarded, and 121 volumes of juvenile fiction and 
127 volumes not fiction but especially adapted to children. Many 
of these are more beautiful in print and in illustration than we, their 
elders, were accustomed to see in our childhood. You have added 
the thirteen volumes of Fumess's Variomm edition of Shakespeare, 
all now published, which must delight the most scholarly student ; 
the two fresh volumes of the new and enlarged edition of Chambers's 
Cyclopaedia of English literature ; Symonds seven volumes on the 
'Renaissance in Italy' of art and literature; Kugler's 'Italian schools 
of painting', and other works of art to explain and supplement our 
exhibitions of photographs of art ; Sven Hadin's Central Asia and 
Tibet ; Morley's life of Gladstone ; a new edition of Kipling ; Hel- 



*The number of volumes of fiction added in 1901 was 137| of juveniles, 56; the 
number of volumes of fiction added in 1902 was 78, of juveniles 61. Some of 
these were new copies or new editions of books worn out. 



10 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

molt's History of the World ; Yule's Marco Polo, and many other 
less expensive, tho' in many cases not less remarkable and interest- 
ing volumes. Are their titles not all given in the supplement? 

In closing, I wish to thank you, the town, and the donors for what 
is proving of greater and greater use for the practical work of the 
library; namely, the recent enlargements of the building and its 
furnishings and its fire proofing. May I express a hope that the 
provision of the town for the needs of the coming year will allow a 
new and improved catalogue case and a typewriting machine. 

There are some valuable encyclopaedias and sets of reference 
books waiting our purchase and use, especially as our purchases for 
the last few years have been somewhat restricted by other needs. A 
case for the display of maps and a large globe for reference, I would 
like to see. 

With great respect for your long continued valuable labors for the 
library, I humbly submit this, my thirty-sixth annual report. 

SOLON F. WHITNEY, Librarian.

Report of Trustees of Free Public Library. 



The work of the library during the past year has gone on 
quietly and effectively, and, judging from the increased use that 
the citizens have made of its books and magazines, to the satis- 
faction and profit of its many patrons. 

The catalogue of biography, history and travels that was prom- 
ised in last year's report has been completed, and is for sale at 
the library at a nominal price. The trustees advise all who 
wish to consult the books on these subjects to buy a copy of 
this catalogue. 

The trustees intend during the coming yoar to catalogue the 
books on fine arts, general literature, philosophy and religion, and 
they expect that this catalogue will be finished by the end of 
the year. 

After a trial of several years, the trustees concluded that the 
number of people using the library on Sundays was not sufficiently 
large to warrant them in keeping the whole library open on that 
day, and they therefore, decided to close the upper rooms, and to 
open the Pratt reading room from four in the afternoon to eight 
in the evening. 

The addition to the library given by Mr. Mollis H. Hunnewell 
has made it possible for classes in various subjects to meet and 
use the books without interfering with the ordinary routine use 
of the library. 

For the handsome and appropriate fittings, furnishings and dec- 
orations of the Hunnewell and Pratt reading rooms, the town is 
chiefly indebted to Mr. Charles Brigham, a long-time trustee and 
loyal friend of the library, who generously undertook to furnish 
these rooms, and who, with the assistance of Mrs. Edward Whit- 
ney, Mrs. Charles Gardner^ Mr. Frederick Pratt and Mr. H. Clay 
Derby raised and paid out for this purpose five thousand two 
hundred and eighty six dollars. I take it on myself on behalf of 



4 WATERIOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

the town to extend to these donors our grateful thanks, and to 
assure them that their liberal gift is fully appreciated by all the 
friends of the library. 

The trustees desire to call to the attention of the town that 
Mr. Hollis H. Hunnewell, now deceased, has given by several dona- 
tions in the past, twenty five thousand dollars to the library, and that 
he has caused to be placed in Hunnewell hall to the memory of his 
father a bronze tablet with the following inscription : 

IN MEMORY OF 

DOCTOR WALTER HUNNEWELL 

BORN IN CAMBRIDGE HE BECAME A RESIDENT OF WATER- 
TOWN IN 1798, WHERE HE PRACTICED MEDICINE FOR 
MORE THAN HALF A CENTURY AND WAS HIGHLY ESTEEMED. 
FOR MANY YEARS HE WAS THE ONLY PHYSICIAN IN THE 
TOWN. HE HAD A LARGE NUMBER OF PATIENl-S 
AMONG THE INHABITANTS OF NEWTON AND 
WEST CAMBRIDGE WHERE HE WAS EQUALLY 
WELL KNOWN AND RESPECTED. 
HE DIED IN 1855. IN HIS 87th YEAR. 

Mr. Hunnewell, with charactistic modesty has effaced himself 
in making these large donations ; and there is nothing in the 
library to perpetuate his personality. I would respectfully sug- 
gest that the town in recognition of his gracious gifts instruct the 
trustees to request permission of his family to copy his portrait 
and that the same be hung in the library. Although the 
trustees could spend to advantage a larger sum than has been ap- 
propriated in the past, yet they feel that the town with its many 
calls for money is spending all that it can wisely spare fox 
the library, and they therefore, recommend that the* town ap- 
propriate for the use of the library the same sum as last year, viz : 
fifty two hundred and fifty dollars and the dog tax.

the year. In warm, pleasant weather mos^ prefer to spendt heir 
time out-of-doors. In appendix 3 can be seen the number of per- 
sons who have made use of the facilities for Sunday reading 
offered. 

The usual information in regard to the working of the library is 
given as usual in the various appendices. Some little change has been 
made in the list of periodicals, owing to the death of some periodicals 
or the changing tastes of readers. Any who do not find the periodi- 
cals they would like to read are always invited to make known their 
wants in this particular as well as in regard to books. 

The building has been constantly looked after as well as the 
grounds. We hope the latter will be improved by the planting of 
shrubs, and we look for the cooperation of all good citizens in keep- 
ing them, when we get them, in order. Some improvements have 
been made in the roofs, though not yet with entire success. The 
proper skill to provide against leaks has not yet been found. Ice 
and snow and the rapid and constant changes in temperature, now 
building dams of ice, now filling lakes of water behind them, make 
a tight roof difficult to secure. 

The introduction of a telephone has proved useful. Probably all 
have not yet realized that they can when they have an instrument in 
their houses, by calling up (New 390) the Library's number, find 
out at once whether or not a desired book is on the shelves of the 
library, and so whether it can be retained for their use. A book may 
be renewed by the same means, unless some one has called for it 
previously. In this way books will be promptly renewed, or the 
holder will be notified of a previous call, and of the opportunity to 
take it as soon as it is returned. In such case, if the book is 
returned, it may be had again in turn. Books may be sent on call, 
on payment of the cost of sending — a small fee. 

The Bemis and the East Watertown agencies have been used to a 
certain extent. To the former we have sent 664 books and to 
East Watertown 1,563 volumes. Our catalogue of biography, his- 
tory and travels will be complete by the time this report is issued. 
It seems to me that the people who would take out books will be 
glad to pay the merely nominal charge which should be made for it 
to protect it for its fullest usefulness. The labor of the library force 



LIBRARIANS REPORT 13 

has been devoted for nearly a year for such of their time as could 
be spared from the regular administration of the library in prepar- 
ing copy and reading proof for this catalogue. 

That this work must of course absorb a large amount of time was 
foreseen by those who do the work of the library. That much of it 
has been done after library hours in the quiet of the midnight 
watches, is of course understood by those who pass the library late. 
Carlyle said that "the making of catalogues is a Herculean task, but 
catalogues must be made". We expect to see the value of this last 
list, as of the fiction list, in the greatly increased use of the portion 
of the library included, If the town would appropriate the necessary 
funds to pay for the printing, another class of books, say fine arts, 
general literature and philosophy and religion might be prepared and 
published the coming year, and then the remaining part, — science, 
the useful arts, agriculture and mechanics, sociology, economics, 
education and the rest of the library, might be printed the following 
year. 

It may seem best to wait for the regular force of the library to do 
this work in the intervals of time which may be gained from 
their regular work rather than incur the necessary expense 
of having extra people from outside. We can thus in two years 
complete a kind of catalogue of the whole library which will be avail- 
able to people who do not find it convenient to come to the library. 

The regular card catalogue in the library, which is after all the 
only perfect form of catalogue, has been kept well up to date, is 
ready at all times to be consulted by readers. This now comprises 
over a hundred and fifty thousand cards in both card catalogues and 
is fast outgrowing the cases in which they are kept. We have to use 
a line of drawers too high for the younger people, too high even for 
many ladies. One of the pressing needs of the library is a new and 
enlarged case for the public catalogue. The form of our case is 
antiquated. A new case for trays which will preserve them in order 
and yet allow the trays to be removed to the tables for consultation 
will be more convenient for use and can be consulted without inter- 
ference by a much larger number of people. This is a matter of 
expense of only three or four hundred dollars, the need is imperative, 
and I hope there will be no objection to the necessary appropriation 
to secure it at once. 



14 WATERTOWN PUBUC LIBRARY 

While speaking of the library in general and of the needs in build- 
ing and furnishing and for tools and appliances for better service we 
should not forget the most important things of all, namely, the books 
themselves for which alone all else has any value. 

The largest addition to the library the past year as in the previous 
year has been the gift of public documents from our member of 
Congress of which we spoke at length in our last report, the Hon. 
Samuel L. Powers. 

We have received this present year 234 volumes and 282 pamph- 
lets, the most of the volumes well bound in leather. These com- 
prise many valuable scientific reports of use to students and of inter- 
est to many ; as for instance, the reports on the Philippines, includ- 
ing a complete gazetteer of the islands, on Porto Rico, on Cuba, on 
Alaska with their statistics, their interesting descriptions of lands and 
peoples, with their maps and abundant photographic views. The 
reports of the fish commission on the various food fishes to be found 
in the waters along our coasts, of the animals and vegetable forms on 
which they feed, are exact, particuFar, useful, interesting, not only to 
fishermen, but to all who use sea products for food. 

To keep up the binding of valuable periodicals, since we have not 
been able to bind our full quota this past year, a somewhat larger 
appropriation will be required for this coming year, say five or six 
hundred dollars. 

Among the public documents received is one that seemed rather 
a departure from the regular form and still a greater departure in its 
matter. It ought to delight all democrats who are admirers of 
Thomas Jefferson — the very impersonation of true democracy — ^for 
it is a little volume which he prepared for his own use. It consists 
of photographic representations of the pages which he produced by 
cutting out from Greek, Latin, French and English testaments, such 
texts as he found particularly useful to guide him in his course of 
life ; a code of morals in the words of Jesus from the gospels and 
given in the four different languages arranged in parallel columns 
side by side. These he found would often explain each other, give 
him just the help he needed to understand what might not be clear 
in any one of them alone. One can not help thinking that if this 
book, as a public document, published at government expense, should 



ubrarian's report 15 

be scattered broadcast over the countries under our rule or influence 
and over aU our isles in the seas, would in time, with the growth of 
ability to read it, be worth more to the world and do far more to 
advance our influence than any naval vessel, or even fleet, however 
expensive that might be. 

Our set of Ruskin in the finest addition probably ever printed is 
growing. The 15th volume is the last received. Our edition of 
Fumess*s Shakespeare has now reached the 11th volume. Our set of 
John Fiske's works now number 24 volumes. 

It must not be forgotten that while some books never lose their 
value or usefulness, others by frequent use are worn out, or by the 
advance of knowledge become antiquated and comparatively useless. 
Encyclopaedias* and dictionaries and hand-books, atlases and books 
of statistics need to be renewed. Books of science must keep 
pace with the growth of knowledge. You have begun to revise our 
list of the latter. We need some addition to our supply of reliable 
books of reference. 

You have purposely added very sparingly to works of fiction. We 
shall do well to scent out the works of genius which are put in this 
form, for the life and light they give to all subjects, because of the 
avidity with which they are sought, the pleasure with which they kre 
read, the kindling power they give to enthusiasm in all the paths of 
life, the lift they sometimes give over the hard places of thought and 
experience in all callings, and the hope and the faith they sometimes 
inspire even in the bearing of the heavy burdens which one is called 
on to carry in this life often embittered by the wrong doing of others 
or the mistakes due to our imperfect and undeveloped humanity. 

I wish to say, notwithstanding the danger if being supposed to 
favor the purchase of much worthless trash, — I wish to say this 
word in favor of the poem and the novel. 

The Art Club, of the Massachusetts Library Association, continues 
to send to this library, as to all other member or associate libra- 
ries, sets of excellent photographs. We have been able to have 
an almost continuous exhibition of views, each being retained for 
a period of three weeks.

9. Durer. Albrecht Durer, of Nuremberg, most famous painter of Germany, 
1471-1628. 130 photographs. 

The number of exhibits the present year is fourteen and for last 
year nine, as may be seen by the above. 

While the chief value of these exhibits is to help students of art 
or those who are preparing to reap the benefits of travel, they may 



ubrarian's report 17 

be of interest to very many who by reading and the use of pictures 
avoid the expense and discomforts of an ocean voyage and yet gain 
substantial advantages. 

The libraiy has received, through the courtesy of Superinten- 
dent of the Union Bag and Paper company, Mr. Frederick H. 
Robie a supply of excellent covering paper for books which circu- 
late freely, for which our thanks are due. 

We have received from various editors and publishers copies of 
the local papers notably the Watertown Tribune-Enterprise, The 
Newton Journal, The Newton Graphic, The Cambridge Tribune and 
The and Brookline Chronicle. The publishers of the Watertown 
Tribune-Enterprise have always inserted our weekly lists of books 
without making charge. We have accepted this labor thinking 
that they found their pay in the increased circulation of their 
paper. Those who have subscribed for the paper for this season 
will confer a favor on the library by leaving their names at the 
library desk A long list of donors of books and pamphlets is 
given in Appendix 4. The Ancient and Honorable Artillery Com- 
pany of Boston has given to the library a set of four handsome 
. volumes of the history of their organization from the first, to 
whom our thanks are due, as well as to Captain Edward E. Allen, 
of this town. 

From the Smithsonian Institute we have received seven volumes 
and seven phamphlets, these are mostly valuable scientific reports. 
The report of the Smithonian Institution last year I should think 
would be of interest to most men as it gives for the year the 
particulars of discoveries or inventions made in the advance of the 
sciences and other fields of human inquiry and knowledge. 

The library thus by gifts and by the use of the appropriation 
granted to it each year is making progress, gradually accumulating 
a valuable library which now numbers over thirty thousand 
(30,345) volumes and over twenty four thousand (24,851) papers 
and pamphlets. 

The map stand and large globe for the reference room asked 
for last year seem more and more desirable. Perhaps some friend of 
the library would be willing to make a valuable contribution at no 



U

very great cost, of one or the other, since it would be of so 
much use. 

With thankfulness for all the many gifts we have received and 
are receiving, and renewed hope that the resources of the library 
may become better known and appreciated, and so more widely use- 
ful, while the broad catholic spirit of general helpfulness may be 
earnestly cultivated and exercised in all the common interests of this 
community, 

This report is humbly and hopefully submitted, 
Solon F. Whitney.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE FREE 
PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



At the last annual meeting the town authorized the trustees 
to procure a copy of the portrait of Mr. Hollis H. Hunnewell, 
by E. L. Ipsen, which now hangs in Horticultural Hall, Bos- 
ton. This copy has just been completed by Mr. Ipsen at a 
cost of $350.00, and will immediately find an appropriate 
place upon the walls of the library, which already bear 
an autograph letter of Mr. Htmnewell's, and the memorial 
tablet to his honored father. 

By bequest we have during the past year come into pos- 
session of the library of the late A. H. Groeschner, very ma- 
terial additions have been made to the children's library, a 
large globe has been placed in Hunnewell Hall, and a type- 
writer has been added to our equipment. 

The reduction of the hours of Sunday opening — now from 
4 to 8 p.m. — appears to meet all the requirements of the com- 
mtmity, the attendance having been well maintained. 

The value of the library as a meeting place for classes de- 
voted to the study of special subjects and the utility of our 
resources has again been demonstrated. For some months 
past nearly thirty members of the art class in connection 
with the Woman's Club have met periodically in Hunnewell 
Hall, where the works upon art relating to each particular 
period h^ave been arranged for convenience of access and use. 
The success of this class, now pursuing its third year of work, 
suggests the opportunities which the library and the librarian 
can so wisely afford for collective instruction in many other 
lines of study. 

With the completion of the new fire and police department 
building the entire tract of land from Cross Street to White's 
Avenue will appear substantially as a imit, marred only by 
the presence of a single residence in Saltonstall Park and the 
otherwise unnecessary public way of approach thereto. The 



4 WATBRTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

generous setting of shrubs made last year brings the library 
building into closer harmony with its surroimdings. 

The exceedingly limited degree to which the public has 
shown its interest in the laborious effort of publishing a spe- 
cial catalogue of biography, history and travel — the price of 
which is only fifteen cents — ^hardly seems to warrant the pub- 
lication of the classified catalogue of works on art, general lit- 
erature and science which has long been in preparation. The 
card index of the same, always accessible to those who visit 
the library, will, however, probably meet all possible require- 
ments. In fact, even more complete card classification of all 
the books in the library and the purchase of a much-needed 
and more convenient index cabinet should mark the next 
steps in the way of increasing the convenient use of the 
library. 

The trustees ask the town to appropriate for the needs of 
the library the sum of five thousand two hundred and fifty 
dollars and the dog tax. This amount is the same as appro- 
priated last year.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Trtistees of the Free Public Library of Watertawn: 

Gentlemen, — ^Article IX of the "revised rules and regu- 
ations" is quite specific in regard to the duties of the librarian. 
Among the things required of him is "an annual report." It 
is taken for granted that it is to be in regard to his performance 
of the duties placed upon him. "All books, pamphlets, and 
periodicals" have been "registered and prepared for use," "all 
necessary records" have been faithfully kept, "catalogues" 
have been "prepared" and it has been his endeavor and that 
of his assistants to "do all in their power for the convenience 
of those who come to the library as visitors, as readers, or as 
takers of books;" and especially has it been his effort "to 
take the utmost pains to preserve the property of the library 
and save it from unnecessary deterioration" while making it 
accessible and useful. % 

In the long series of annual reports, which he has had the 
honor to present, appeals have been made to you and through 
you to the town for increase in the store of books, periodicals, 
and pamphlets that he might become more useful to the 
people of the town. He has at times urged the enlargement 
of building or increase in furnishing, to enable him to more 
perfectly meet the needs already apparent or to suggest still 
ftirther needs in carrying out the spirit of the institution 
which he regards as second to no other in its dignity and 
importance. It stands for the uplifting of all. Its purpose 
includes the education of the young and generally the improve- 
ment of the intellectual and moral life of the town. It may 
be, — ^it ought to be, — a kind of tmiversity of the people. 
Its right to exist, to be supported by universal taxation, 
rests on its ability to serve as an important agency in pro- 
moting the common good, the safety of the town in good 
government, and in promoting the general welfare. 

You can judge whether in the past it has done anything in 



8 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

this direction, whether it is fitted to continue this work, and 
so is worthy of continued support. 

I wish, now that the equipment of the library has been 
furnished so fidly by the town and those most interested in the 
welfare of the library, to acknowledge my gratitude for all that 
has been done. The library has now a good building with 
fire-proof stack room for storage of books, and reading rooms 
with fine conveniences for the exhibition and use of its reference 
books and works of art. In the future, it is true, it will have 
a larger and more conveniently located room for the use of the 
children so that they may more perfectly pursue their search 
for amusement and information and trend less upon the 
comfort of their elders who also require to be considered. 
We need also a special room for the exhibition of works of 
art. It would be very convenient to have a better place to 
exhibit the beautiful and instructive series of photographs 
which we are receiving from the Library Art Club of which 
our library is a member. The following is a list of titles of the 
photographs exhibited the present year : 

1 and 2. Italian art, Nos. 1 and 2. Each of the two sets 
has 108 photographs. 

3. Great masterpieces. 16 photographs. 

4. Scotland, No. 1. Edinburg to the field of Flodden. 
102 photographs. 

5. India, from Bombay to Calcutta. 116 photographs. 

6. Switzerland, No. 1 Lake Geneva, Mont Blanc, and 
the valley of the Rhone. 92 photographs. 

7. Florence, No. 4. Italian art as represented in Florence, 
from Giotto to Lorenzo di Credi. 97 photographs. 

8. Denver and the Rio Grande. 

9. Velasquez, the most celebrated of Spanish painters. 
94 photographs. . 

10. China. 83 photographs. Lent to the club by the 
Southern Pacific Railroad. 

11. Yellowstone Park, Nos. 1, 2, and 3. A large collection 
of many beautiful photographs. 

12. Modem German Sculpture, Part 1. 46 photographs 



librarian's report 9 

13. Alaska. Views and maps. 51 photographs. 

We have a sketch of an enlargement of oiir building which 
would provide for both uses, a plan which has already received 
in a general way, the approval of a former board of trustees 
and which a well-disposed friend of means expressed a desire 
to assist in realizing. Some other persons of means may 
desire to give their assistance in carrying out such a plan in 
the future. 

You have added this year to the equipment of the library a 
type writing machine which my assistants are learning to make 
good use of, and also a large globe which will be of great use 
to everybody in giving true cojnparative ideas of the countries 
of which they read. 

The library has received a partial duplicate set of bound 
volumes of our local paper, the Tribune-Enterprise, from its 
publishers and editor, as well as numbers to help in completing 
for binding the last ten volumes of the same. These pub- 
lishers also furnish two copies of each number of the paper 
from week to week as it appears. We have now almost 
complete sets of all local papers which have been pubHshed 
in town. 

Our set of printed town reports is now more nearly 
complete than any other collection, not even excluding that 
in the town house. 

It is well understood that we are always desirous to secure 
any rare pamphlet or other printed decimient ever printed in 
the town or concerning the town or its interests or people. 

We are for another year indebted to the courtesy of Mr. 
Robie of the Union Bag and Paper Company, for a full supply 
of good covering paper for our books. 

Our thanks are due to our former representative in Congress, 
Mr. Samuel L. Powers, for many valuable public documents, 
as well as also to our present representative Mr. Weeks, for 
continuing to send similar docimients. Many of these volimies 
now numbering several hundred are of scientific and general 
interest, are strongly and neatly bound in leather, will be of 
permanent interest and value. 



10 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

Appendix IV gives the names of other generous donors, 
with the number of their gifts. 

While acknowledging the accumulating wealth of this 
library in its building and furnishings, I should speak of the 
rapidly growing card catalogue and remind you that it has 
really out-grown its cases and will require attention in the 
immediate future. 

I am chagrined to find that the newly printed catalogue of 
Biography, History, and Travel has not been purchased more 
commonly by the users of the library. It will render more 
accessible, in a convenient form, the best part, — that is the 
more interesting part, — of the Ubrary. The nominal price, 
fifteen cents — not one-tenth part of its cost, — should not 
prevent a copy being found in every house in town. 

The reading room with its full store of papers and period- 
icals has been open on Sunday afternoons for half of the year. 
The Pratt Reference room with its books on all sociological 
subjects, including good government, education, and political 
economy is also at the same time accessible to any one who 
wishes to use it. So also the collection of works on the 
mechanic arts. Any young man or young woman ambitious 
to fit himself to become a more able and successful citizen 
may with profit use a part of the leisure of his Sunday after- 
noons in this well equipped room. 

Your librarian will take great pleasure in developing in 
future more fully the possibilities of this part of the librar\'. 
This might be made usefid in fostering a kind of university- 
extension work, such as has been taken up with interest in 
England and in some parts of this country. 

The supplementary tables appended to this report show the 
comparative growth in the number and use of books and 
periodicals, the contributions from the special friends of the 
library, the extent of the branches, the number and atten- 
dance on Sundays, and the list of periodicals received at the 
Hbrary. Some of the best of the latter are perhaps less used 
than they might be, or would be, if those who would be inter- 
ested would call for them. Expensive illustrated works are 



librarian's report ' 11 

too costly to be handled much by the idly curious, while they 
are not too costly to be used by any who are prepared to be 
benefitted by their beautiful and often deUcate illustrations. 

There is no end to what an interested student may say to 
try to lead others to more profitable pastures. 

Enough has been said to indicate the spirit in which the 
library is administered by yourselves as well as by your libra- 
rian and his assistants. 

Respectfully submitted, 

SOLON F. WHITNEY, Librarian.

REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAir OF THE TRUSTEES. 



In the last report mention was made of the completion 
of the portrait of Mr. HoUis H. Himnewell. This has since 
been htmg in the library btiilding as an added memorial to 
his generous interest in the town of his birth. 

The working value of the library has been materially 
increased during the past year by the substitution of a modem 
index cabinet for the ponderous case of drawers which pre- 
viously contained the card catalogue. 

Additional plantings of shrubbery have been made along 
the eastern boimdary of the library lot as a shield to the 
objectionable adjoining aspect. It is, however, impossible 
to give the library a perfectly satisfactory setting while 
Thaxter Street and the single dwelling-house thereon still 
remain as a break in an otherwise continuous tract of open land. 

After seventeen years of faithful service especially marked 
by constancy and industry, Miss Mabel F. Learned resigned 
on July first from the position of first assistant. Miss Lydia 
W. Masters, previously acting as second assistant, was 
appointed to fill the vacancy, and the other assistants were 
correspondingly advanced. 

The library is now in excellent physical condition; impor- 
tant additions have been made during the past year to a 
collection of books whose character establishes our library 
among the best in the State. Systematic work has been 
undertaken in the children's room; additional books, mounted 
pictures, and classified lists of books have added much to the 
interest. 

The trustees recommend the same appropriation as last 
year; namely. $5250.00 and the dog tax.

Chairman.

the Board of Trustees."

WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 



LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the Free Public Library of WaterUmm: 

The appended tables of statistics will give you information 
which will enable you to compare in some particulars the work- 
ing of the library during the past year with other years. 
There has been a steady growth in the use of the library. 
Thi^ growth is probably greater in the use of the building and 
the reading rooms with their collections of reference books 
and periodicals and works of art, of which no exact record has 
been or can be taken, than in the number of persons who have 
taken out cards and who have taken out books for home use. 

If it were desirable, we might by establishing some means 
of recording numbers at the doors determine the number of 
people who pass into the building; but this would be of little 
value in comparison with the introduction of some contrivance 
now seeming impossible which would record the amount of use 
of our books within the library and especially the amount of 
uplift and inspiration obtained, or the amount of information 
which the visitors to the library are able to carry away with 
them. 

I fear that you will have to depend upon your observation 
and your general knowledge of the people of this town and of 
the probable result of placing before them and their children 
books and periodicals and works of art the character of which 
you make it your business to understand, for your estimate of 
the comparative value of such good work. You must add 
that large and hopeful faith in the improvability of human 
nature which those who have experienced it in their own lives 
have in greatest measure, when you attempt to weigh and 
estimate such values. While claiming full significance of the 
meaning of such statistics as we are able to keep, we may 
confess to the impotence of figures in helping us to a true 
estimate of values in some of the most important aspects of 
our work. 



LIBRARIAN S REPORT 7 

We might safely claim some credit for the work of the 
library in the general improvement in the town, as shown in 
its buildings and their surroundings, its streets and their 
adornment, and the increased attention given to the arts of 
living everywhere manifest. Not that we have reached any 
high state of perfection in these respects but we must confess 
that it is less easy to satisfy the awakening sentiment which a 
kindling intelligence is demanding in improved churches and 
school-houses as well as in more orderly dwellings, with whole 
streets turned into parks with their shrubbery and lines of 
trees. An appreciation of the natural advantages which 
nature has given the town with its river and hills and simny 
slopes is intensified by comparison with other places, with 
the aid of photographic representations of regions perhaps 
more favored with great wealth and the influence of great 
examples. 

If I am directed to confine my attention in my report to 
things obviously and incontrovertibly accomplished, it will 
certainly be in order to remind you of the increasing evidence 
that the library is at least in the line of giving aid and encour- 
agement in all good, helpful and beneficent work by calling to 
your mind that among those who have frequented these rooms 
and shown their appreciation of the values of the agencies you 
here install are sons and daughters of the people who in their 
own town or in other parts of our country show it by their 
works; among them are some who have been or are engaged 
in the most progressive of all the movements for general 
improvement. Among those who have engaged in good work 
outside our own borders are many who are now teaching in 
schools, — high schools and colleges, — are pastors and teachers 
in churches, are doing good work in some of the largest and 
best libraries of the coimtry. One is prominent in a distant 
city in manual training, one was an engineer for the com- 
mission engaged in this vicinity in the planning and laying out 
of the grandest system of parks in any American city, a move- 
ment that in the near future will reflect honor and fame on 
our immediate surroundings. Among the boys who used 



8 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

our library are men active in law and in the halls of legis- 
lation, boys who learning our methods of work have revolu- 
tionized the ways of business, and especially the methods of 
keeping accounts on cards, or modes of collecting and classi- 
fying knowledge, even in the hands of professional college 
teachers. 

This town has the honor of having the oldest mill in the 
Commonwealth for the grinding of grain for the food of its 
people, of mills for fulling and dressing of cloth woven in the 
hand looms of our ancient dames, and for the introduction 
in 1803 and 1805 of the earliest mills for the spinning of 
cotton, the manufacture of cotton duck and cotton cloths, 
preceding by eight years the erection of larger mills in Wal- 
tham by men who but a few years later in 1821 or 1822 laid the 
foundation of still larger mills in Lowell and which movement 
led later to the vast extension of this gigantic industry in 
which Massachusetts is now prepared to clothe the world. 
But who shall say that it is not a greater work for our engineers 
in interest of a growing hygienic and aesthetic movement to level 
some of these mills, fill up their sluice ways, cover the river 
banks with a park and drive ways and dredge out the river's 
shallow channels for the boats and floating palaces which it 
will bear on its bosom in no distant day when we shall become 
a prominent part of the vast and beautiful park-system that 
will give health and pleasure to imbom millions. 

If you will excuse me from repeating the mention of minor 
details common to my long line of reports, many of which 
details are during the past year more to our credit than ever 
before, I will close this report by a brief mention of the 
continued gift of the set of valuable public documents pub- 
lished in leather bindings by our national government from 
our respected member of Congress, a gift of valuable books 
from a former teacher of our schools, the continued gift of 
valuable paper manufactured in our town for library use, the 
promise of works of art, say a bust of Keats*, and other 

♦A copy of this bust of Keats, the work of Miss Annie Whitney, 
has been received and placed in position in Hunnewell Hall since the 
above was read to the trustees. 



librarian's report 9 

sculptures from artist daughters of our town and unnumbered 
kindnesses from prominent citizens which help and encourage 
the good work. Of course it is hard for me in trying to shorten 
this printed report to omit mention of our gratitude, growing 
with growing years, for the help we have had in the building 
and its furnishings which each year shows by its crowding 
adaptability, its fitness for all the uses of the library; the 
fire-proof stack for our books, the well-planned furnishings 
of our reading rooms grow in value as well as in usefulness. 

I could wish to crowd in a statement that we are enabled by 
our library to help by books and pictures to give aid to the 
progressive movement of our town's Woman's Club, for an 
increase of knowledge and art. First, a class of a dozen or 
more in the study of household science and the art of pre- 
paring food, met for a year or so in the Pratt reference room; 
now a class of 25 or 30 of the women are studying for the third 
year, the history of art, especially the history of the Ren- 
aissance of art in Italy. Also I might say that by our grow- 
ing collection of periodicals and books we could give similar 
aid to the classes in any of the branches of sociological studies, 
as in economics, constitutional history, political science, civics, 
the useful arts, or home industries. We have the room and 
the books. Let the people in such university extension 
studies, with the aid of some more advanced student from 
the colleges to assist them, make use of these advantages. Or 
we could well accommodate classes in history or literature if 
they would meet in the forenoon, both with room and books. 

We are hoping to start reading circles, to find some helpful 
readers especially to children, of stories and general literature. 

We look forward to the time when the library will have 
enlarged quarters for the children, and rooms for the exhi- 
bition of pictures of which we have had a dozen or more 
collections during the past year, with no room for their proper 
display except by crowding out of view most valuable sets of 
bound periodicals. Will not some one give us means for an- 
other wing to our library , a building similar to the Hunnewell 
wing? This would give on the east side of the building, on the 



10 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

ground floor, an adequate children's room and on the main 
floor a room for the exhibition of pictures. This we shall hope 
to have in the future. It would be most useful in its interior 
arrangement, and would restore harmony to the external 
structure. 

I may say in closing that it seems to me that we may get a 
better point of view for understanding our blessings in this 
direction by stepping outside of ourselves and looking, through 
the eyes of an intelligent foreigner, at the spirit which prompts 
and fills it with meaning. 

Baron von Stemburg says in an article in the October 
Forum, " It has frequently struck me in listening to impres- 
sions received in America by foreign travellers that the 
American in his deepest nature is a realist who strives for 
power and wealth and outer comfort; that the object of his 
life is to pile up the mighty dollar. People who speak thus 
seem to me blind to everything which lies below the surface. 
They seem to have studied the mills and factories of the 
industrial centers and to have neglected to read or understand 
the character of the American man or woman. They seem 
to have been bewildered by those outer symptoms which 
necessarily accompany the opening of a new land with great 
material resources, and to have been unable to fathom the 
real meaning and purpose of those energies which are active 
in the American people." ** Those who may contradict me can 
not have sounded the depths of the philosophy of Ralph 
Waldo Emerson, or studied that life and read the speeches of 
Abraham Lincoln, and considered their far-reaching effect on 
the American people. In Lincoln's great character nothing 
can be more striking than the way in which he combined 
reality^and the loftiest ideal, with a thoroughly practical 
capacity to'achieve that ideal by practical methods." **Ask 
any outsider to name the two most sincere representatives of 
Americanism. If he knows the American people he will tell 
you Lincoln and Emerson. Emerson made the heart of the 
New World beatjin Concord, and its impulses have penetrated 
into every limb of the body of this vast republic." 



librarian's report ' 11 

" The aim of all men and women whose philosophy amounts 
to anything has been and will be the same; the helpftd, up- 
lifting idea. One of the greatest gifts man has received from 
God is the opportunity to help his brethren. The best of 
them at times will need the helping hand. But in helping or 
in asking for help each man must work for himself, and tmless 
he so works no outside help can avail him. To be permanently 
effective, aid must always take the form of helping a man to 
help himself." This I take it describes quite truly the 
philosophy of this whole library movement. I will close by 
quoting one sentence more. " Nothing has been proved to 
the world more emphatically than the fact that it is only by 
idealistic action and by the will to do our duty that we can 
ever expect to gain real satisfaction and happiness." 

The history of this library shows that at least half of the 
expense of books, building and furnishings have been the free 
gift of individuals. It is by such giving and by corresponding 
appropriations and by altruistic co-operation on the part of 
all that the library will come into more active and effective 
work which the more hopeful seek. 

Respectfully yours, 
SOLON F. WHITNEY, Librarian.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES. 



Owing to the illness of Father Kelleher, Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees, the duty of making a report for the cur- 
rent year devolves upon the Secretary. 

There is nothing of an eventful nature to be recorded in the 
report of the Trustees for the past year — ^there have been no 
bequests of money and no important changes in any of the 
departments of the library. 

It was decided to close the library at eight o'clock instead of 
nine o'clock p.m. during the months of July and August, 
which change seemed agreeable to all. 

Hunnewell Hall has been thoroughly renovated and now 
presents a most attractive appearance. 

The routine work for the year has progressed smoothly and 
advantageously, showing the library to be in first-class condi- 
tion as a result of the many plans and suggestions for its 
improvement which now appear to have borne fruit in due 
time. The Trustees recommend the same appropriations as 
last year; namely, $5250.00 and the dog tax.

Secretary for the Trustees.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the Free Public Library of Waiertaum, 

Gentlemen: There is little to report in the history of this 
library, during the past year, of a remarkable character. The 
work of the library has gone on in its regular and useful way, 
growing more and more interesting to one really familiar with 
its many details of acquisition and improvement and with the 
hopeful relations which it has maintained to the people, both 
old and young, for whose benefit it was first endowed and for 
whom the town appropriates what it feels it can afford for its 
increase and administration. 

The usual statistics are tabulated in the several appendices 
to this report. 

On looking at the figures in Appendix 1. the casual observer 
will say at first that the addition to its stock of books (441 
volumes) is only about one-third that of the few yedrs preced- 
ing, and might hastily conclude that the most important 
feature of library life and growth was being neglected. This, 
however, is only apparent. For by looking one step further 
it will be seen that the number of volumes added by purchase 
during the past year (809) exceeds slightly the number of 
volumes purchased in any other one year since the first organi- 
zation of the library. From the fact that it has seemed wise 
to discard so many of the books, worn out by constant and 
increasing usage, over seven hundred volumes (more exactly 
747), the net gain falls to this low level. It is true that the 
large proportion of books discarded is among the most used 
and most popular books. Many more volumes also are fast 
approaching that condition of wear in which it must be said 
that they too are worn out. This is the result of use and a 
very conservative policy of holding on to books as long as they 
can be read. Some have already been replaced and more 



LIBRARIAN S REPORT 7 

should be soon replaced with either new copies or new books 
in the immediate future. 

You will see by the same appendix that two hundred and 
fifty (250) books have been given to the library during the 
year, and one hundred and thirty-four (134) volumes have 
resulted from the binding of a4)ortion (1448 numbers) of our 
periodicals. Even thus our stock of periodicals goes on 
increasing, although over three thousand are disposed of as 
not being desired for future binding. 

The recorded use of books used in the building is somewhat 
less than last year, the number of books taken home for read- 
ing or study about the same as the average for the last few 
years. There is an increasing number of books placed on the 
open shelves of the reading, rooms, the use of which is not 
shown in the figures reported. It would be possible to 
greatly increase the number of books taken away from the 
library by providing a larger number of duplicates of the more 
popular novels, or by increasing the number of the newer 
poptdar books called for. Whether it wotdd be good policy to 
lower the standard of books purchased to increase the number 
of readers is a question always debated by the boards of 
management in all the libraries. In different libraries this 
standard widely differs, and should always be considered in 
comparing the value of the circulation of different libraries 
with the number of books or readers. 

Other facts appear in the various appendices added to this 
report. The names of donors with the number of their gifts, 
whether volumes, pamphlets or papers, are given in Appendix 
4. , The titles of periodicals purchased or given to the library 
appear in alphabetical order in the final appendix. 

The library has received from the Union Paper and Bag 
Company this year, as for many years before, a supply of 
excellent book-covering paper. We mention with gratitude 
the several improvements made in furnishing the interior of 
the library within the year. The installation of a permanent 
system of lighting in place of the temporary and somewhat 
unsafe arrangement allowed to remain since our additions to 



8 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

the btiilding, the covering of the rather rough floor of the 
delivery room with linoleum, the placing of *large safe in the 
basement for the safe keeping of ,the most rare and valuable 
books, manuscripts and records, all serve to improve our 
plant. The possession of the safe should be publicly noted, 
for it will show the families and friends of the town that they 
may entrust now to the library, with a feeling of security, if 
they had any doubt before, any journals, letters, accounts, or 
other written documents that tend to illustrate or throw light 
upon the history of the past, until the time will come when 
they will be certainly sought by students of our earlier 
history, when all the witnesses of the persons and transactions 
mentioned shall have passed with the lives of those concerned. 

Everything should be done to preserve the record of sig- 
nificant transactions in our local history. Here may be pre- 
served beyond the chance of destruction, by fire or theft, 
documents the like of which in our earliest history we would 
now willingly sacrifice much to possess. 

The library is mainly the treasury house of books. Lest 
we forget the main thing, would it not be well to remind the 
public, by a few words beyond the mere enumeration in the 
supplemental catalogue, of the titles of books added the past 
year, which will be found with this report, of some of the more 
noted. You had at the beginning just added the fifteen 
volumes of the International Encyclopaedia and the completion 
of that very valuable work the Encyclopaedia Britannica by 
the purchase of the thirteen new volumes necessary to form 
the tenth edition. You have purchased the twelve volumes 
of " The Jewish Encyclopedia/' a work of great scholarship 
and learning, a treasure to all Biblical students, and later the 
only two volumes yet published of the equally erudite work 
** The Catholic Encyclopedia.*' Over against these heavy 
volumes I may point to the replacement for our youngest 
readers of new copies of sets of books adapted to their wants 
and graded to their capacities, the very sight of which must 
kindle kind emotions among the wrinkles of our hearts, when 
we think of our early youth or look into the pleased faces of 



librarian's report 9 

the little ones just beginning to climb the somewhat laborious 
hills of literature. 

Without taking space to name more specifically the many 
works of sociology and religion, of history and art, of biography 
and travel, of commerce and manufactures, of special mechan- 
ical application and of higher literary contents or literary 
criticism, I may invite very close and studious attention to 
the list of books, — the Supplementary catalogue, — ^appended. 

One will, of course, be sure to note some of the sets of works 
entered; for instance, Aldrich's nine volumes, Bagehot's five 
volumes, John Burroughs Riverby edition in 14 volumes, 
Donald G. Mitchell's works in 15 volimies, John Ruskin's 
library edition of his works, now reaching the thirty-first 
volume; Shakespeare in Fumiss' viariorum edition, the four- 
teenth and fifteenth volumes of which have just appeared; 
and the subscription edition of Thoreau in 20 volumes. 

Some of the smaller and less expensive works will probably 
claim and hold the attention of many readers, such as Ben- 
son's " Religion of the plain man," Hilty's ** Steps in life," 
Pier's " The young in heart," G. Stanley Hall's " Aspects 
of child life and education," and his ** Youth, its education, 
regimen and hygiene," Gulick's " The efficient life," ** Auto- 
biography of Benjamin Franklin " and his ** Life and services 
with some of the proverbs of I^oor Richard." Or, if one is 
interested in biography, Morgan's " Theodore Roosevelt, the 
boy and the man," or Owen Wister's " Seven ages of Washing- 
ton," or Bliss Perry's " John Greenleaf Whittier." Or, if one 
is inclined to look at nations rather than individuals, 
Blok's ** History of the people of the Netherlands," now filling 
four volumes, or Jameson's edition of " Original narratives of 
the early American history," which was begun last year and 
is continued this year in '* Spanish explorers in the southern 
states," or Helmolt's "History of the world" in eight volumes 
or Martin's " The awakening of China," or Weale's " The 
truce in the East and its aftermath," or in some of the volumes 
of Professor Hart's " American nation," now closing with the 
twenty-seventh volume, a good index of the whole. Perhaps 



10 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

one may be one of the many readers getting interested in some 
variety of social science. If so Goldwin Smith's " Labor and 
capital," or Burbank's " Training of the human plant/' or 
Page's " Rebuilding of old commonwealths," or Riis's 
** Peril and preservation of the home," or Gorst's " Children 
of the nation," or Root's " The citizen's part in govern- 
ment," or Porter's " Dangers of municipal ownership," or if 
he is inclined to wander more widely yet not fall a prey to 
fiction or the long list of children's books he may care to look 
into Wiley's ** Foods and their adidteration," Esther Single- 
ton's " Dutch and Flemish furniture," or Walter Crane's 
" An artist's reminiscences," Duncaa's ** Chemistry of 
commerce " has much that is new, as has Freeman and Chand- 
ler's *' The World's commercial products." 

Some valuable help may be found by prospective master 
mechanics in sets of illustrated technical volumes on engineer- 
ing or work-shop practice, published by the Armour Institute 
of Technology. Hunnewell Hall is gradually filling up with 
valuable works of reference. 

Our rooms have been graced this fourth year of art studies 
*by a large class of women from the Woman's Club, who with 
their teacher in hours when the library was not otherwise open, 
have made use of our considerable collection of books on art, 
have increased it, and otherwise made it more valuable and 
accessible to the rest of the town. 

The teachers of the town have brought many of the children 
of their classes to the library, shown its rooms and their books 
and treasures, and introduced the prospective readers by 
authenticating their cards and making them acquainted with 
the attendants. Teachers have sent their pupils for parcels 
of books, have referred the older ones to the reference works 
on our shelves, and have required of them the writing of 
themes which required the acquisition of knowledge obtained 
only from such sources. Thus have the schools and the 
library sought to co-operate in the work of education. 

The enthusiasm of my assistants does not lag. I hope you 



librarian's report 11 

will encourage them as much as you can by increasing their 
salaries somewhat, according to their deserts. 

The children's room proves by our constant experience to be 
too small, though if they can not have a special attendant, 
it is well located. Of course some other larger room with an 
attendant chosen for her training and fitness to deal with 
children's natures and children's wants, would by its quiet be 
better for the children and would relieve the business of the 
delivery desk from much confusion. 

The ideal librarian should be a bom teacher with all lit- 
erature at hand, with no weakness of body or of mind to pre- 
vent his making the most of each and any opportunity to 
bring its treasures to any seeker or enquirer. How can the 
work of such a one ever lose interest or be thought common- 
place or trivial? 

Your interest in this work must ever be on the increase, 
and from your larger knowledge of the greater public, of the 
sources from which comes our means of support, and your 
habit of gathering from the world of literature, science, aftid of 
art, continue to increase in a geometrical ratio as your years 
and experience increase. 

Most respectfully submitted, 

SOLON F. WHITNEY, Librarian.

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



The Trustees in presenting this their annual report of the 
year preceding, wish to state that they have endeavored to 
carry on the work of the Library in such a manner that it 
might meet with the fullest approval of the people who have 
at heart the best interests of the Town. 

We feel that this approbation is well deserved. In looking 
back we cannot recall any one very important thing under- 
taken nor any great changes effected — ^but the permanent 
good of the Library, the high standard of past years have 
always been before our eyes in influencing and directing us 
in all our deliberations. 

We have tried to put our Library on such a working basis 
as to effect the greatest possible good to all. That this in a 
very satisfactory manner in all departments has been accom- 
plished, we believe will be realized in perusing the report of 
our Librarian. 

The Trustees respectfully recommend that the Town appro- 
priate for the use of the Library the amount generally given, 
viz., fifty-two hundred and fifty dollars and the dog tax. 

JOHN F. KELLEHER. 

Chairman.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the Free Public Library of Waiertawn: 

Gentlemen : It is needless to say to you that this has been 
a year of constant struggle with economy in the administration 
of the library. We have as cheerfully as possible accepted 
the decrease in the appropriations and one and all of my assis- 
tants have assumed the increased labors involved in a smaller 
force and larger work and have tried to serve the public as 
fully as our abilities would enable us to do so. The circulation 
of books going from the library has been nearly ten per cent 
larger, and the increase in the attention we have been obliged 
to give the considerably larger number of children who have 
thronged our rooms has obliged the public to accept less 
prompt and less full attention to their calls. We hope that 
the change in the quarters given temporarily to the children, 
which are much larger and more isolated from the reading 
room for adults and from the general delivery, will work out 
a relief to all concerned. If your appropriations would allow 
the addition to the children's department of a lady with the 
training and knowledge which the town requires in each 
school-room and should require here of one who to a love of 
children and experience in managing a larger number, could add 
that general acquaintance of children's literature and ability 
to read their works aloud with some hint of their dramatic 
power which would inspire in unaroused minds some idea of 
their real interest, there would be seen a change in the attitude 
of the children which would be a pleasing revelation. We have 
room and means for this, if we could afford to hire the woman. 
Books can be given out to the children more conveniently 
in this new larger room down stairs. It relieves the pressure 
above, and removes the confusion necessary in the delivery 
room in serving with adults the less trained children. The 
other rooms below could on occasion be used for conferences 



LIBRARIAN S REPORT 7 

and readings with classes of children. Such a woman as pro- 
posed, a children's librarian, would be a great help to all the 
schools of the town; — by conference with the teachers, would 
assist them in their work by selecting books for the children 
and teaching them their use, would help in proper co-operative 
auxiliary reading and study; and, generally, would be of 
great service in the co-operation of library and the schools. 

The library should not only supply the books demanded 
by the public, but should, as it doubtless does to a certain 
extent, lead the public, both adult as well as the immature 
thinkers, to the choice and enjoyment of the best books. 

I am sure that a larger appropriation required for children's 
books and for a trained children's librarian would be found 
wise. This would be an expansion of our work in the direction 
now followed in nearly all of the neighboring libraries. One 
thousand dollars would give the additional librarian and pro- 
vide the necessary addition to the children's library with 
greater co-operation with all the schools. The more I think 
of this thing the more I think that there must be men of 
influence in the town who. seeing the meaning of this insistence 
upon the rights of children to the best help possible in this 
direction, would in the town meeting when the appropri- 
ations are under discussion, insist that this small sum, 
one thousand dollars, be raised and applied in this direction. 
Books should be purchased in sufficient abundance, and a 
trained teacher librarian should be employed. Children come 
in large numbers. It is not wise to turn them out because 
they come with dirty hands and empty minds; we should try 
to interest them. 

The assistant whose place has not yet been filled, Miss 
Nelson, was making a good beginning in her work with 
children. When seeking additional instruction during last 
summer vacation, at Simmons College, she broke down in 
health and has not been able to resume. A teacher with 
some experience in school as well as in library, is really re- 
quired for this position ; or one specially prepared for care of 
children and with a knowledge of children's literature. 



8 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

Having spoken to some length on this matter so important 
just now, I may abbreviate the rest of my report by saying 
that in all other departments of our work there has been con- 
stant progress and improvement. 

Our store of valuable reference works is on the increase. 
The shelves in Hunnewell Hall are full and we are improving 
their contents by removing the less used to the ample stack 
and as we are able adding newer or more valuable reference 
books. 

Our list of periodicals both for circulation and for use in 
the reading-rooms is being improved. The rooms themselves 
have beenimproved,the floors have been covered with linoleum, 
the walls and woodwork have been brightened up with paint 
and varnish, the furniture has been changed, a more cheerful 
and helpful atmosphere is apparent. 

I wish a feeling throughout the town, — ^in every house in 
town, — could be more common that it is pleasant to be served 
in the choice and the getting desirable books as it is in the 
library in meeting and serving a constantly increasing num- 
ber. We in the library are in it for what we can do; the larger 
the real service demanded, the better are we pleased. 

This, I know, is the spirit you encourage. The usual statis- 
tics will be found in the appendices. The large list of additions 
to the catalogue is as usual appended. Credit is given to our 
many donors. For other considerations, I might, to save 
cost of printing, refer to former reports. 

All of which is respectfully submitted, 

SOLON F. WHITNEY, Librarian.

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY 



The Trustees of the Watertown Public Library submit their 
annual report. Each succeeding year the library more fully 
and in a more satisfactory manner fulfills its allotted work — 
thereby deservedly meriting a greater confidence and a more 
willing support of the commimity at large. 

We realize that the efficiency of the library is best tested 
and procured by the constant and proper use of good books, 
which it happily possesses. Unless this is accomplished the 
library fails in its work. Our Librarian's report will prove 
that the primary object and purpose of the library are being 
attained. 

Handicapped by the pressure of economy we have, never- 
theless, purchased many valuable books during the year. 
We have not been unmindful of the library's obligations to the 
children. Their room has been brightened and made more 
attractive. Special efforts have been made to supply good 
and interesting reading for them. 

Much of the general success of the library is the result of 
the zeal, courtesy and spirit of helpfulness which have char- 
acterized our Librarian and his faithful assistants in the dis- 
charge of their various duties. 

It was a matter of great regret to the Trustees that Mr. 
Walter Snow felt obliged to withdraw from the membership 
of the Board. His services were invaluable. 

The Trustees respectfully recommend that the Town appro- 
priate for the use of the library the amount generally given, 
viz., S5250.00 and an additional $900.00 in lieu of the dog tax. 

JOHN F. KELLEHER, 
Chairman.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 



The changes in rooms for the children spoken of in the last 
report have proved, if not ideal in character, at least of great 
advantage, both to the children and to their elders in com- 
fort and convenience. The rooms have been repainted and 
relighted by the Trustees within the last few weeks, and I trust 
are more enjoyable and more useful to the children. The 
number of books has been considerably increased, while their 
character and style have been improved. The best that can 
be obtained are none too good for the use of the future citizens 
of the Town. Here the Town can best afford to invest any 
spare funds that can be obtained by economy in its other 
more material departments. Although it may be difficult to 
estimate the value of good books in entertaining and energizing 
thought to any individual child, there can be no imcertainty 
in the minds of clear thinkers as to the general trend of such 
things, and so of their great value as an educational force 
to the Town as a whole. Give them more and better books, 
all they can use. 

A wise economy might demand a larger degree of help in 
the conduct and administration of this room. There should be 
two in charge of so large a room and so large a number of 
books. One of such two attendants should be very familiar 
with children's literature, should be able to read well with 
enthusiasm and some dran:iatic force to groups of children to 
enlist their interest and s)anpathy in the printed page, and 
thus teach them to read any books with intelligence ; should 
have some time to visit their schools and keep in touch with 
their studies, as well as the spirit and work of their teachers. 
This, in furthering the usefulness of this department of the 
library, should be at once attended to. This is in line with 
the principal recommendation of last year's report. This 
would require a small addition to our appropriation. 

It would be well to submit this increased support with its in- 



LIBRARIAN S REPORT 7 

creased expense to the consideration of the people of the 
Town, especially to those who will be chiefly benefited, and 
whose good will and co-operation it is of importance to 
receive in the administration of this part of the work of the 
library. 

Would it not be well to call attention to the character of 
the books which are being added to our increasing store? In 
the first place will not users of the library, and others who in 
their own needs should become users of the library, be par- 
ticularly interested? If one knows exactly what he requires 
for his own use it wovdd be manifestly best to multiply specific 
works on limited fields of knowledge, technical works, treatises 
on specific subjects. To the yoimg and those whose acquaint- 
ance with literature is limited, encyclopaedias, covering large 
fields of knowledge in which specific matters are arranged in 
alphabetic order or on some other simple plan, so that the 
hunt for information may be abridged or shortened in time, 
are especially desirable. 

The library has quite recently increased and improved its 
sets of dictionaries. The volumes of Murray's Dictionary, 
that massive work on which its editors have been engaged for 
twenty-five years or more, have now reached the seventh in 
number, and words beginning with ** pyx *' have been added 
as published. Webster's newly enlarged dictionary with its 
more than 400,000 words has just been added. The new 
International Cyclopaedia is on the shelves. The new Jewish 
Cyclopaedia, with its vast accumulation of facts and treatises 
on the Bible, Bible coimtries, Bible names, Bible history, is 
among our newer acquisitions. The Catholic Encyclopaedia, 
a work of deep scholarship and intimate knowledge of the 
history, usages, doctrines and work of this part of the Christian 
church, is growing, having now reached the sixth volume. 
The Encyclopaedia Britannica, with its dozen new volumes, a 
monumental work in all departments of learning, is made 
available by its volume of maps, historical, political and 
geographical, and its elaborate volume of indexes. 

This last feature will make this great work usable, which 



8 WATERTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY 

some find it hard to use, if they will first consult its alphabetic 
array of special topics in the index volume. We have quite 
a store one will find, on examination, of such great accumula- 
tions of knowledge beginning with the penny cyclopaedia 
down to these here enumerated. 

But they are not for all time. One is no sooner written than 
it needs to be revised. On many questions of literature, 
antiquities and history the " Penny cyclopaedia *' prepared by 
the Society for the diffusion of useful knowledge nearly 
a hundred years ago is unsurpassed; yet on that most 
ancient of arts agriculture, as well as on chemistry, manu- 
factures, new inventions, the great strides in improved govern- 
ment and all the new social sciences, one would almost look 
in vain for anything needed to meet the new calls of the new 
day. 

The great interest of the people, not only in our own Town 
and State as well as in our country as a whole, has recently 
been stated by able men. If we can not meet the call for a 
vastly increased and improved production of agricultural 
products, if our lands can not 'be made to yield a greatly 
increased amount of food for instance, we must cease to ex- 
port such things to other countries, and our commerce will 
disappear. Every one is called on to do by greater knowledge 
and skill something for his country. Washington said that 
one who made two blades of grass grow where but one grew 
before was a patriot, a lover of his country. Give the people 
all the information they can take. Make it clear and as at- 
tractive as possible. Get the best books and periodicals 
possible on horticulture and agriculture. Let our children 
learn the present needs and the means to supply them by the 
most varied and attractive works. We have Bailey's Dic- 
tionary of Horticulture, we want his Dictionary of Agriculture 
and many of his handbooks on special fields of agriculture. 

In architecture of the past and the present we are slowly 
accumulating many very attractive books and periodicals. 

Our set of works on invention is steadily increasing. The 
Patent Office adds a dozen of its large volumes each year.

showing the active brains of oiir people. Some new and 
interesting books have been added to our list of juveniles dur- 
ing the past year, teaching the use of tools and stimulating 
to the use of the hands and brains of the young in making 
things usefiU as well as curious. 

Perhaps in no direction is the growth of our library more 
apparent than in the room devoted to sociology and the useful 
arts. Many of our people have yet to leam that there is such 
a room. Its shelves have the oldest and great foundation 
works that have stimulated, during the past few years, the 
multiplication of the vast number of treatises on every variety 
of progress and improvement in all that relates to the welfare 
of the people, to their government, mutual relations, social 
and individual betterment. The trend of thought and dis- 
cussion has turned from vague and technical theology, what- 
ever that may be, to the practical questions of growth and per- 
sonal interests of society and of help to its individual members. 
Our shelves faintly show something of the varied nature of 
this new interest. Here Hterature is so new and so rapidly 
changing we need constant acquisitions. 

I intended at this point to add some considerations and 
mention of notably valuable books in different departments 
of literature which have been added this year, and which 
will be foimd by title and author and subject in the supple- 
mentary catalogue, but forbear on account of the length of 
the Tovm report. Let each one carefully scan this printed 
list and select such as he might find useful in his own calling 
or reading or enjoyment. Some will be found immensely 
stimulating to the quick 'witted, some will open up new fields 
for the imagination, some will save strokes and steps for the 
plodding, — ^all will be for use or for pleasure to some one. If 
each should make good use of what the Town in its wisdom 
and from its hard-earned monies provides, invention, mental 
alertness, a more joyous, active intelligence, would help to lift 
the Town to a higher plane of rational and successful life. 

Our supply of periodicals is slowly increasing. If every 
one is not satisfied with their number and variety, it is his own

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE FREE 
PUBUC LIBRART. 

The sustained interest in the library shown by the with- 
drawal of books year by year is extremely gratifying to your 
Trustees. 

An earnest appeal is ever on our lips to increase this interest 
so that all may be in closer touch with the generous field of 
literature which is here offered. 

The feature of the year just past has been the special work 
done for the children. Your Trustees believe that if by any 
method the library can create in children a fondness for good 
books which later shall ripen into a genuine love for them, a 
great good will be done. Will you not assist us in this work 
by your help and encouragement at home? It is remarkable 
how a child's interest can be aroused by winning its attention 
in reading from or telling stories about a book. 

Your Trustees cordially invite at any time " suggestions " 
for the purchase of books and assure you that any specially 
desired volumes will receive our careful and respectful con- 
sideration. 

We respectfully recommend that the Town appropriate for 
the use of the library the amount generally given, viz.: 
16250.

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT. 

The past year, the forty-third of this library's experience, 
has been most interesting in its progress. While new questions 
are constantly arising, especially in our dealings with new 
individuals, the same greater subjects of interest hold on with 
a pertinacity due to deep-seated conditions of our nature 
and our relations to the rising generations of the young 
and the untaught. We have reasons for continued congratu- 
lations in our good fortune in having a site and a building 
convenient for our people as well as in the wisdom of its 
arrangement into rooms and its store of books and other 
works of art anci literature. I never tire of reminding you 
of the educational value of this institution, for this is the 
fundamental motive of our labors and sacrifices. 

The work for children has taken a new lease of interest and 
usefulness. You have made substantial response to sug- 
gestions of last year's report. A specially trained person to 
take charge of the children's room has had a chance to show 
the benefits of such additional attention. You have begun 
to make more liberal provision for the reading of the yotmg. 
You have bought more books. You have helped them by the 
skilled voice to understand better the printed page in greatly 
increased ntimbers, frequently in too large numbers for the 
assistants we have to take care of them. There are hours 
almost every day, when we need an additional attendant. 
I hope there is no doubt in the minds of all, especially of 
teachers and parents and all interested in education, of the 
necessity and the wisdom of making an increased appro- 
priation for this department. 

The greater use of the whole library is shown not only in 
our admirable children's rooms, by their frequently crowded 
condition, but in the whole library by the larger number of 
books and periodicals circulated. This has been for the 
year more than eleven per cent larger than it has ever been 

6 



librarian's rbport 7 

before, and for the last six months larger by even a greater 
percentage. 

It is my chief anxiety to meet this larger expectation of 
the people with larger supplies of books and periodicals and 
pictures, with better service and. more of it. 

In view of the fact that our Town book is large to handle, 
large to print and expensive as well, I think I will forego my 
desire to discuss with the Town the various interests of this 
library to which I have given the best years of my life, and 
ask the people to look over the former reports, visit the 
library each one of them and see if what we have done is of 
value, and what we might do with more help would be of 
still greater value, and leave the matter here. 

While neglecting no part of duty to the library in any way, 
let us take hold with a stronger hand of the children's part 
of it and give it a more liberal and more quickening impulse 
forward. 

Respectfully yours, 

SOLON F. WHITNEY.
