CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY SCHOOL. 



CIRCULAR AND ANNOUNCEMENT- 1915-1916. 



HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 
The California State Library School 
was established by resolution of the Board 
of Trustees of the California State Li- 
brary, adopted September 4. 1913. 

On December 8. 1913, the entrance 
examination for the first class was con- 
ducted by the California State Civil Ser- 
vice Commission, and was held simul- 
taneously in San Francisco, Los Angeles 
and Sacramento. The number of students 
was limited to the fifteen who passed 
with the highest average. The year's 
course was begun on January 14, 1914. 
The first term ended June 12, 1914, and 
the second term was from September 
23, 1914 to December 18, 1914. 

On September 2, 1914, the entrance 
examination for the second class was 
conducted in the same way and in the 
same cities as for the first class. Four- 
teen passed and were accepted as stu- 
dents. The terms are from September 
23, 1914, to December 18, 1914, and from 
January 4, 1915, to June 25, 1915. 

PURPOSE 

The purpose of the school is to help 
meet the demand for librarians in Cali- 
fornia. The demand in this state is 
largely for California librarians — those 
who are familiar and in sympathy with 
the conditions in California, who are well 
prepared technically to handle the tech- 
nical parts of the work, and who have 
developed judgment enough to fit the one 
to the other. So those who are not in- 
tending to enter the profession in Califor- 
nia are advised to consider entering some 
other library school. 

Perhaps no profession offers a more 
inspiring field for young men and women 
than will the library profession in Cali- 
fornia during the next twenty-five years. 
A plan has been worked out for complete 
and economical library service for Cali- 
fornia, and there is a great deal of con- 
struction work to be done to perfect the 
service at every point. The workers 
in every part of the field will need all 
of the best qualities for construction 



work — a good general educational foun- 
dation, executive ability, tact, judgment, 
energy, and an open, receptive mind in 
order to grasp the needs of the people. 

For the training, the California State 
Library offers : . 

1. A well equipped laboratory of about 
200,000 volumes, including its law library ; 
the collection of federal, state and mu- 
nicipal documents ; the collection of 
books for the blind ; and the special col- 
lection on California. The fact that all 
sorts of material are handled in one in- 
stitution is unusual, perhaps the only 
similar institution being the New York 
State Library. 

2. A viewpoint from which the stu- 
dent can see the working of not only 
the State Library but also the county 
free libraries and free public libraries, 
as they are all working together toward 
complete, economical and satisfactory 
service for the people of California. The 
State Library has voluntarily undertaken 
to supplement the libraries of the state 
and this is the reason of the close con- 
nection between this library and the oth- 
ers. California's service is unique in 
that the service from the State Library 
is given free even of transportation 
charges to county free libraries. 

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 
As the course is planned for one year, 
it has been found necessary to have at 
least a university or college graduation 
to build on, so the entrance requirement 
has been raised to university or college 
graduation beginning with the class that 
enters September 27, 1915. 

The applicant must pass an examina- 
tion which will be held in Los Angeles, 
May 29, 1915, and in San Francisco, 
May 31, 1915, and will be conducted by 
the California State Civil Service Com- 
mission. 

The examination will consist of a state- 
ment of the candidate's education, train- 
ing and experience as it appears in the 
application blank, and an oral' test to 
determine the cuudidalc's fitness for the 



news notes op calipornia libraries. [January, 1915 



library profession, both as to his person- 
ality and judgment and as to his fund of 
general information, including history, 
current events and literature. 

Applicants must be at least twenty 
years of age and under thirty on the day 
of the examination. 

The number of students will be limited 
to twelve. 

Two application blanks will be fur- 
nished on request, one for the State Li- 
brary and one for the state civil service. 
Both applications must be fully filled out 
and on file at least one week before the 
date of the examination. 

Students who are planning their courses 
of study in high school or college, or 
both, with the idea of taking up library 
work in California, are advised to include 
Spanish among the modern languages 
selected as it is of peculiar importance 
in this state. 

The typewriter is so much used in 
every part of library work that accepted 
applicants should plan to be proficient in 
its use. 

plan of the course 

The course is planned so that each 
student works in each of the departments 
a short time the first term and a longer 
time the second term. During these 
practice work hours, the student is given 
as far as possible, the actual work of the 
department and all work is carefully re- 
vised. 

Only such instruction is given in the 
form of lectures as can, to best advan- 
tage, be handled in that way. 

In order that the student may have 
practice in speaking on his feet and on 
varied subjects, current events, California 
history and literature and such subjects 
as library schools, library publications, 
buildings, etc., are looked up by the stu- 
dents and reported upon — without notes 
when possible — in class. This sort of 
work also gives the student practice in 
reference work, as the subjects are as- 
signed and the reports made before a 
member of the staff informed on the sub- 
ject of the report. This work is called 
student talks. 

During the second term it is planned 
that the student spend about 175 hours 
on a bibliography on some special sub- 
ject — the preference being given to a Cali- 



fornia subject that has not been worked 
up before. 

About 50 hours are spent on a special 
piece of indexing, preference being given 
to indexing some California periodicals 
that have not been indexed in any of the 
printed indexes to periodical literature. 

TUITION, EXPENSES AND COMPEN- 
SATION WORK 

There is no charge for the course of in- 
struction, and the necessary supplies and 
textbooks are supplied by the Library for 
the use of the student. 

As it is often difficult to take the time 
to specialize for a year after finishing a 
college course, the Library undertakes to 
furnish compensation work for those stu- 
dents who need it, such work to be done 
Saturdays and after library hours. Stu- 
dents are advised, however, not to under- 
take the extra work for compensation 
unless necessary. 

CERTIFICATE AND PROFESSIONAL 
STANDING 

A certificate will be given to those who 
complete the course satisfactorily. The 
certificate, under the state civil service, 
will be for positions as "library assist- 
ant." The year's course can not prepare 
any student for a higher position, but 
with experience afterward in some large 
library, or in a county free library, it 
may be possible in time to pass the 
examination for certification as county 
librarian, under the State Board of Li- 
brary Examiners. 

The class will be on probation during 
the first six weeks of the first term. At 
the end of that period only those who 
show qualities that would suit them to 
the library profession will be permitted 
to continue the course. 

LECTURERS 
Some special lecturers will be engaged 
for lectures on special subjects, especially 
on California subjects, but with these 
exceptions, the lecturers for the courses 
are the heads of the departments of the 
State Library.*

The Library has acquired for its local 
history collection a genealogical table of 
the Palomared family. 

As a matter of economy the printed 
bulletin has been suspended. 

A wood floor has been laid over the 
cement floor in the basement, and so far 
this has counteracted the dampness. 

The experiment of an outdoor bulletin 
board for new books has proved that it 
receives more attention than one within 
the building.

DIRECTORY FOR LIBRARY SUPPLIES AND OTHER 
ITEMS OF GENERAL INTEREST. 



Many public libraries waste a great 
deal of time and money before they find 
good places to get supplies. The plan is 
to give all libraries the benefit of the 
experience of the older libraries of the 
State by listing under different heads the 
houses that have been found to give sat- 
isfaction, the names and addresses being 
furnished by the older and larger libraries 
of California. In this way suggestions 
will be given as to where different sorts 
of books may be bought, where books may 
be rebound or periodicals bound, where 
library furniture may be bought, etc., 
both in California and in the East. 

If any information is needed about the 
firms listed below which can not be ob- 
tained from the firms themselves, the 
names of the libraries recommending the 
different ones will be sent to any library 
upon application to the State Library.

UNION CATALOG FOR CALIFORNIA 
AT THE STATE LIBRARY. 

The Union Catalog for California was 
started in 1909 with cards for the peri- 
odical files in most of the libraries of Cali- 
fornia. The Catalog aims to include an 
author card for every addition to every 
library in California. The county free 
libraries and some of the public libraries 
of the state are already sending cards for 
additions. Stanford University accessions 
since October, 1912, are included and 
cards are being received from the Univer- 
sity of California Library as the books 
are recataloged. 

The State Library is also a depository 
for cards from Harvard University Li- 
brary; the University of Chicago Library 
and the Library of Congress. 

Any infomation the Union Catalog or 
depository cards can give is furnished 
promptly to any inquirer.

DISTRICT MEETINGS. 
First District Meeting. 

The First District of the California 
Library Association met Friday evening, 
October 9, 1914, in the Children's room 



of the Oakland Free Library, J. C. 
Rowell presiding. About ninety people 
were present. 

With a few cordial words of welcome, 
Mr Rowell opened the meeting, and intro- 
duced as the first speaker Dr Edwin 
Wiley, of the University of California 
Library, who presented an interesting 
paper ou "How can the librarians 
broaden tbeir scholarship?" Dr Wiley 
treated his theme from the point of view 
librarians in the making, emphasizing 
their need of a breadth of training, in 
order that they might gain the knowledge 
of the terminology, at least, of a large 
range of subjects, and also, an acquaint- 
ance with bibliographies of these subjects. 
Indeed, the value of the work of the bibli- 
ographer is daily receiving greater recog- 
nition, and the demand for training espe- 
cially in that field is a constantly growing 
one. The desirability of offering in our 
university curricula opportunities for 
preparation to meet this demand was 
clearly brought out by Dr Wiley in his 
able presentation of his subject. 

President Rowell supplemented Dr 
Wiley's paper with a few well-chosen 
stimulating suggestions on "Broadening 
the scholarship of active librarians." He 
urged that librarians keep informed on 
current events ; read regularly one or two 
good magazines, such as the Atlantic, 
and the North American Review ; also 
that they read intensively along some 
definite line ; and, above all, begin young, 
while one has yet assimilative power. 

In planning the program the president 
had desired to make the meeting attrac- 
tive especially to library trustees, and so 
had chosen, as their representative, Pro- 
fessor L. J. Richardson, of the University 
of California, to speak on the subject, 
"Guiding principles in the selection of a 
librarian." As PrGfessor Richardson had 
just passed successfully through the 
throes of choosing a librarian for the 
Berkeley Public Library, one felt that his 
talk presented a practical, rather than a 
theoretical point of view. His informal 
address was most entertaining and help- 
ful, laying stress, first, on the essentials : 
a sound education, and executive ability ; 
then speaking of the relation of the li- 
brarian to the community ; his need of 
knowledge of a business office ; the need 
for certain social qualifications, tact and

patience, that would enable him to build 
up frank and direct relations with the 
city government ; further, of the correla- 
tion of the library with the special inter- 
ests of the city, as the Chamber of Com- 
merce, clubs, merchants' associations, etc. 
The librarian should be a comparatively 
young man, not one chosen to adorn an 
office, but one with creative work still 
ahead of him. Finally, he should repre- 
sent a high moral standard, be a force for 
good and righteousness. 

The meeting listened next to J. L. 
Gillis, of the California State Library, 
who, in a few words, direct and inspira- 
tional, spoke of the "California Library 
Association ; its growth and its purpose." 

The care of the American Library As- 
sociation in 1915 falls to the First Dis- 
trict, and the following Central Commit- 
tee was elected to make preparations for 
the conference : J. C. Howell, chairman, 
Messrs Clark, Gillis, Graves, Greene, 
Joeckel, Leupp, Rea, and Mrs Krauth. 
Mr Leupp, as chairman of the commit- 
tee on housing, made a preliminary re- 
port, and Mr Greene, as chairman, re- 
ported on entertainments and the expo- 
sition exhibit. 

The informal reception following the 
program was greatly enjoyed and appre- 
ciated by all present, and many new 
names were added to the roll of members. 
Pauline Gttnthokp, Secretary. 

Second District Meeting. 

A meeting of the second district was 
held in San Jose, Saturday, October 24, 
.1914. The morning session was held in 
the rooms of Santa Clara County Library 
in the Hall of Justice and the afternoon 
meeting in the children's room of the San 
Jose Public Library. Miss Nell McGin- 
ley, president of the district, called the 
meeting to order at 11 o'clock. 

The librarians were" welcomed to the 
city by Mrs A. A. Fowler, president of 
the city board of library trustees. J. L. 
Gillis of Sacramento, state librarian, 
responded in behalf of the librarians. "The 
word welcome," he said, "is one of the 
most cheering in the language, and I 
know we all deeply appreciate Mrs Fow- 
ler's words, and we thank her for them." 
Mr Gillis stated that every librarian 
should be a member of the California 
Library Association, for mutual aid and 
protection, giving that organization 



greater strength, so that it would be 
enabled to better the librarians' condi- 
tion in the way of better hours, better 
pay, which is now far out of proportion 
to that of teachers, and more rapid and 
continuous advancement. The American 
Library Association will hold its national 
convention in California next year, and 
every librarian in the state should be a 
member of the state association before 
that time. 

Mrs Alice G. Whitbeck, of Richmond, 
librarian of Contra Costa county, gave 
an interesting talk on "The Story Hour." 
Mrs Whitbeck was for a long time chil- 
dren's librarian at Berkeley, and is recog- 
nized as an authority on the subject con- 
cerning which she so entertainingly spoke. 
She is now instructing teachers in the 
schools so that they can utilize efficiently 
this method of expanding the minds of 
the little ones. The story hour, she said, 
is becoming universal, and librarians 
should cooperate with primary teachers, 
but should not be expected to give too 
much of their time for the mere amuse- 
ment of little children. 

Miss Stella Huntington, local county 
librarian, told what has been accom- 
plished in Santa Clara County. The su- 
pervisors had established a county library 
and she had already instituted ten 
branches in the county. These have 900 
borrowers, and as they have only 1100 
books it is plain that more books must be 
provided. The demand for books is over- 
whelming. 

After a luncheon at Hotel Montgomery, 
which was greatly enjoyed, the afternoon 
session was opened at 2 o'clock with a 
brief but exquisite musical program. 
Guy C. Miller, a library trustee of Palo 
Alto, read a paper on books, touching 
entertainingly on publishing, advertising, 
prices, copyrights, editions de luxe, 
dealers, reprints, second-hand books, out- 
of-print books, holiday books, extra edi- 
tions and a mass of detail that threw 
much light on the mechanical and bus- 
iness phases of the wide field of liter- 
ature. 

Miss Frances Patterson of Palo Alto 
was- elected as a member of the state 
nominating committee from the second 
district. A round table, in charge of Miss 
Barmby, concluded the session. The 
convention thanked all who had con- 
tributed to the success of the meeting

including those who added so much to 
the enjoyment of the afternoon session, 
by lending their talent as musicians.

Third District Meeting. 

A meeting of the Third District of the 
California Library Association was held 
in Fairfield and Suisun on Saturday, 
November 7, 1914. The morning session 
held in the Court House, Fairfield, was 
called to order by Miss Clara Dills, pres- 
ident of the District. The address of wel- 
come, instead of being made by Henry 
Widenmann, who was unavoidably de- 
tained out of town, was made by Miss 
Dills. 

J. L. Gillis gave a short address on 
the California State Library, and the 
county library and the benefits to be 
derived therefrom. 

Miss Stella Huntington was called 
upon to tell of her work in Santa Clara 
County Library, in which she is making 
a great success. 

Mrs A. G. Whitbeck gave an interest- 
ing talk on the advancement of the Con- 
tra Costa County Library, and stated 



the circulation of books at the end of 
nine months had reached 21,942. Later 
in the day Mrs Whitbeck was called 
upon to tell some children's stories, which 
were very interesting. 

Mrs J. G. Babcock's paper on "What 
libraries have done and are doing for the 
immigrant," pointed out the ways that 
libraries can help the foreigners in our 
midst. 

In accordance with the recently 
adopted amendment to the constitution, 
Miss Margaret A. Barnett of Santa 
Rosa was chosen nominator from the 
Third District. 

After the morning session the members 
present were the guests of Miss Dills at 
a luncheon at the Hotel Arlington, 
Suisun. The trip from Fairfield to 
Suisun was made in automobiles fur- 
nished by the Suisun Chamber of Com- 
merce. 

The afternoon session was held in 
Armijo Hall, Suisun, with the ladies of 
the Wednesday Club as hostesses. Before 
the meeting was called to order, Mrs 
Goodman, president of the club, spoke a 
few words of welcome, then Miss Dills 
called upon Dan White, County Super- 
intendent of Schools. Mr White told of 
the decided help he had gained already 
from the County Library and also stated 
that sixteen school districts had taken 
advantage of the County Library, and it 
has been but three months organized. 

Miss S. T. Smith spoke of the refer- 
ence work in the State Library and the 
books, pictures, etc., ready to be loaned 
on application. Charles S. Greene told 
of children's reading, urging the libra- 
rians to give them the best books to read. 
Miss Lillian D. Clark, Assistant in Agri- 
cultural Extension, University of Califor- 
nia, told of the difference in her work in 
the counties that had county libraries and 
the counties that had not. Miss Clark 
is an earnest advocate of the county 
library. 

Miss H. G. Eddy gave an interesting 
account of the growth of the county li- 
brary in California. Mr Gillis then 
thanked the people for their interest in 
library work and urged them to continue 
that interest and work harder for their 
libraries. Mr K. Jones followed with a 
well rendered musical selection. Charles 
S. Greene closed the meeting with the

news notes of California libraries. [January, 1915 



following resolutions, which were unani- 
mously adopted : 

Whereas, The Third District C. L. A. 
has met in Fairfield and Suisun under 
the most delightful circumstances and 
desires to put on record a small part of 
its gratitude ; 

Now be it resolved, that our earnest 
thanks are due to all those who have 
combined to make our visit pleasant, in 
particular to Messrs Long and Keene, 
the Chamber of Commerce, for automo- 
biles ; to Judge Buckles for the hospi- 
tality of his court room, to the faculty of 
the Armijo High School for showing us 
their beautiful building, to Miss Clark 
of University of California, to County 
Supt. White, to Mrs M. U. Goodman 
and the ladies of the Wednesday Club, 
and to the High School Glee Club, also 
Mr Kenneth Jones for making our after- 
noon session a charming experience. 

In especial manner would we thank the 
president of our district, Miss Clara B. 
Dills for her efforts in our behalf, and we 
congratulate the good people of Solano 
county on having as their County Libra- 
rian a lady so abundantly able and will- 
ing to render to them the signal service 
that the county library can give to all 
people.

L. G. Doyle, Secretary. 
Fifth and Ninth Districts Meeting. 

A joint meeting of the Fifth and Ninth 
Districts was held at the Public Library, 
Auburn, November 21, 1914, the meeting 
being called to order by Miss Carrie 
D. Todd, President of the Fifth District. 



Dr J. N. Ward of the local library 
board gave the address of welcome, 
which was fittingly responded to by J. L. 
Gillis, State Librarian. After paying a 
very high tribute to the work of Miss 
Todd, Mr Gillis urged cooperation on 
the part of all library workers through 
membership in the state association. He 
pointed out the fact that only through 
strong cooperation could there be hope 
of effectively raising library standards 
and the status of the library profession 
in California. An increased membership 
in the California Library Association was 
nrsed iu view of the coming joint meet- 
ing with the American Library Associa- 
tion in the spring in Berkeley. 

W. B. Lardner, another member of the 
Auburn library board was the next 
speaker. His subject was "Auburn Pub- 
lic Library." He gave a short history 
of the library movement in his town. 
Twenty years ago Mrs Lewis of Auburn 
started a reading room in an ex-saloon. 
Later the books were moved into larger 
quarters and more books purchased. The 
management became hopelessly involved 
and the books were taken for debt. 
While being thus held, they were de- 
stroyed by fire. In 1901 a boys' club 
called "The Crescent Club" started a 
little library from a donation given by 
Dr Rooney from his collection. After 
four years the club disbanded giving its 
books to the city. The formation of the 
"Auburn Library Association" was the 
next step in evolution of the local library. 
The first official meeting of the associa- 
tion was in August 1908. 1909 found 
the library permanently installed in its 
present quarters. From 1600 books in 
1909 the library has increased its acces- 
sions to 4103. 

Dr J. F. Engle of the local high school 
was then introduced. His talk was a 
very interesting account of the Placer 
County High School Junior College. 
The Junior College of Placer is one of 
eight or nine such institutions in the 
state and is the only one of its kind in 
northern California. This new educa- 
tional departure has only been on trial 
for four years in the state and is two 
years old in Auburn. The Junior Col- 
lege gives the Freshman and Sophomore 
work now given in our universities. Mr

Bngle's justification of it, aside from 
its undoubted success in Auburn, is that 
while aristocratic schools have their place 
in education they are for the few but 
that the public schools are for the people 
and should be made as useful to them 
as possible. If the first two years of 
university work were given by the high 
schools, those with restricted means could 
more easily afford the higher education 
of their children, as support at home is 
less than abroad. Thus the same insti- 
tution would reach thousands where now 
it reaches only hundreds. A second 
reason for this institution is that the 
instruction is often better given in the 
Junior College, because of the congested 
condition at the State University. The 
teachers that can be procured by the 
high schools are better prepared, more 
experienced, and have the time for more 
individual attention. A third reason for 
the continued existence of the Junior Col- 
lege is a moral one. The students now 
graduate at the age of comparative im- 
maturity and cannot be allowed to go 
beyond parental control without incurring 
danger. One argument against the 
Junior College is the taxes. Dr Engle 
pointed out that the benefit derived more 
than compensates for the additional out- 
lay. Let the universities confine them- 
selves mainly to research work, their 
proper field, and put the preparatory 
training upon the high schools. Dr 
Engle thought that six years ought to 
be time for a complete readjustment. 

The question box was found empty, 
but Mr Gillis succeeded in getting perti- 
nent questions from the audience which 
brought out many interesting features of 
California library work. Among the 
questions answered was how to get mate- 
rial on special subjects. In solving this 
the very important use of the county 
library system was emphasized. No 
longer do libraries make large private 
collections on special subjects but draw 
on other libraries to fill the demand. 
This is made possible at the State Li- 
brary through the Union Catalog started 
there which lists the books of some pri- 
vate and state institutions and all of the 
county libraries. 

After the morning session the libra- 
rians were the guests of the Auburn 
Library for an automobile ride through 



the city and surrounding country. The 
ride was greatly appreciated as the hills 
were beautiful in autumn tints and the 
drive revealed the resources of the place. 

The meeting was opened at 2.30 by 
Miss Todd in business session. Miss H. 
G. Eddy in pursuance of the amendment 
to the constitution of the California Li- 
brary Association which requires a repre- 
sentative from each library district to be 
elected to act with the past presidents of 
the C. L. A. as a nominating committee 
for the officers of the C. L. A. at the 
annual meeting, put Mrs Julia G. Bab- 
cock, Librarian of Yolo County, in nom- 
ination with the stipulation that if she 
be not able to attend the annual meeting 
the district president be empowered to 
name a substitute. The motion was sec- 
onded and carried. Miss Vera McDon- 
nell, president of the ninth district, then 
took the chair. Miss Ida Reagan of the 
Butte County Library was elected from 
the ninth district on a similar motion, 
by Miss Beulah Munini. 

The program was resumed by Miss 
Beulah Mumm, the newly appointed li- 
brarian of Glenn County. Her subject 
was the Glenn County Free Library. It 
was very interesting from the viewpoint 
of what a short time it takes to make a 
county library of immediate use to the 
people. With the present appropriation 
of $3000 only books can be supplied to 
patrons. The housing and care of the 
books so far is contributed, but Miss 
Mumm hopes by another year to be able 
to pay custodians. There were fifteen 
branches at the inception of the under- 
taking with the hope of a possible twenty. 
Seventeen branches were at work at the 
time of the reading of the paper. 

The address of Hon E. S. Birdsall fol- 
lowed. He gave a short resume of the 
work being done by the State Lunacy 
Commission pointing out especially the 
new methods of treating the insane. Miss 
Susan T. Smith very ably handled the 
question of the "California State Library 
and its resources." She briefly sketched 
the growth of the State Library from 
merely one of reference for legislators to 
a real state institution giving service to 
the whole state. Mrs May Dexter Hen- 
shall was not able to be present. Instead 
of her talk on the "Work of the Yolo 
County Library with the schools," Miss

Eddy was asked to speak on the county 
library system and gave a very clear ex- 
position of it. 

Mr Gillis closed the program with a 
talk on the county library. He laid 
stress upon the power of the supervisors 
in the founding of the same. He also 
spoke of the library exhibit at the exposi- 
tion. Moving pictures showing the 
county libraries in action is the theme. 
He closed with an account of the work of 
the Library School at the State Library. 

M. J. Ferguson of the State Library 
very fittingly closed the session with the 
resolution to follow : 

Whereas the fifth and ninth districts 
of the C. L. A. met in joint session at 
Auburn November 21, 1914, and 

Whereas the library and the people of 
Auburn through Miss Todd, Dr Ward 
and Mr Lardner extended to us such a 
hearty welcome and made the occasion 
of our visit to this beautiful little city, 
set -like a jewel in these wondrous foot- 
hills, one long to be remembered, therefore 
be it 

Resolved, That we thank the library 
authorities, the management of the Free- 
man Hotel, and the people of Auburn for 
the generous spirit with which they re- 
ceived us, and for the automobile joy- 
ride through the hills so richly lit with 
autumn coloring ; that we express our 
appreciation of the kindness of Dr Engle 
and of Senator Birdsall for their part in 
making the meeting a success ; and 
further be it 



Resolved, That while this occasion, 
the city of Auburn, and its people need 
no written inscription to impress them- 
selves upon our memory, these resolutions 
be spread upon the minutes of the meet- 
ing and a copy thereof sent to the Auburn 
press. 

The meeting stood adjourned and the 
guests were served with tea and cake, 
which was generously provided by the 
women of the Auburn Library Board.

REFERENCE DEPARTMENT. 

The Reference Department furnishes 
information to any inquirer. It furnishes 
books to public libraries on request of the 
librarian, and to any other educational 
institution on request of its official head 
or its librarian ; to individuals through the 
signature of a state officer, of the Li- 
brarian of the local library or of the 
official head of any other educational in- 
stitution or on receipt of a $5.00 deposit ; 
to a club or grange on request of its presi- 
dent, secretary or librarian. In counties 
having county free libraries, all requests 
must be made through the county library. 

The State Library pays the cost _ of 
transportation to any one borrowing 
through a county free library if he is a 
resident of any part of the county out- 
side of towns with public libraries that 
have not joined the county free library. In 
every other instance the charges both

ways are paid by the borrower. Wells 
Fargo Express Co. has granted a half- 
merchandise rate to the borrower on re- 
turn shipments, and a half-merchandise 
rate both ways on shipments sent to li- 
braries. 

In order to give better service to all 
high schools, it has been decided to loan 
debate material for two weeks only, with 
no extension of time and with no material 
on a new debate subject until the former 
record is clear. 

CATALOG DEPARTMENT. 

Sarah S. Oddie, in charge. 

The work of the Catalog Department 
is proceeding along two parallel lines ; the 
cataloging of the regular additions of new 
books, and the recataloging of much ma- 
terial needing a fuller treatment than it 
has heretofore received. 

During October, November and Decem- 
ber 2799 volumes were cataloged, adding 
8150 cards to the catalog. 

The increased need of an official cata- 
log is being met by supplementing the 
catalog department author and subject 
index with a complete author file of the 
books in the library. During December 
2929 cards were made for this official 
catalog. 

CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT. 

Eudora Garoutte, in charge. 

The California Department aims to 
have a thoroughly good collection of books 
on the history and description, resources 
and industries of the State, as well as the 
works of California authors in all de- 
partments of literature. These are made 
accessible by means of a cai'd catalog. 
Full names and biographical sketches of 
California authors, artists, musicians, 
pioneers and early settlers are being se- 
cured, together with their photographs. 
The collection of bound periodicals is 
quite large. The Department also con- 
tains about 6000 bound volumes of news- 
papers, a file of which is being indexed 
•with reference to the history of the State. 
Students will be assisted in their work. 

Pioneers and Early Settlers. 

No pioneer cards have been received 
during the last three months.

Catalog. 

Five hundred and fourteen cards have 
been added to the California catalog, Oc- 
tober, November and December, 1914. 

Donations. 

We note among the gifts received an 
old account book presented by Addison 
Perrine of Sacramento. In the back of 
the book are pasted old menus elaborately 
printed on white satin, also early pro- 
grams, cards and other interesting ma- 
terial. 

An old Woodwards Garden program, 
donated by Dr John Killeen, is unique. 
Books, pamphlets and pictures have been 
received as usual. 

Notes. 

A large collection of account books, 
manuscripts, autograph letters and pic- 
tures has been acquired by purchase 
from the heirs of William Heath Davis. 
Mr Davis was the author of Sixty Tears 
in California, a very valuable work. The 
material is most interesting and rare. 

The work of collecting, for preserva- 
tion, material relating to the dramatic 
history of the State has been inaugurated. 
Biographical cards are being sent out and 
general material gathered. The library 
has acquired by purchase and donation 
several hundred theatre programs and 
hand bills. Most of these were issued in 
the fifties and sixties and are exceedingly 
rare. Pictures of actors and of the old 
theatre buildings are being secured. We

Opinions About It. 



THE COUNTY FREE LIBRARY-INTRODUCTION. 

TI e county free library is a library 
■which is established by resolution of the 
supervisors, which is supported by the 
county, and which gives free service to 
every resident of the county. 

The headquarters are at the county 
seat and are in charge of a trained 
librarian, who holds a certificate from 
the Board of Library Examiners. 
Branches are established in various parts 
of the county in charge of custodians. 
The largest collection of books is placed 
where the demand is greatest. These 
collections are changed in part or as a 
whole when the community no longer 
uses them.* 

I. How to get county free library serv- 
ice for the schools. 

1. The law. 

Section 1715, Political Code, 
provides that any district school 
board of trustees may, if it wishes, 
transfer the library fund of the 
district to the county free library 
fund. It may also transfer books, 
and other property of the dis- 
trict library to the county free 
library. 

2. How to carry out the law. 
Any board of school trustees 

may, at any meeting, pass a reso- 
lution to have the school receive 
county free library service. A 
copy of this resolution must be 
sent to the county superintendent 
of schools to direct him to trans- 
fer the district school library fund 
to the county free library fund. 
(Copies of this resolution may 
be obtained from your county 
librarian or from the California 
State Library.) 

II. What it accomplishes. 
1. Pooling funds. 

The library money of each dis- 
trict is limited and has not the 
purchasing power when used sep-

County Free Library write to the State 
Library, Sacramento, for the pamphlet : 
California County Free Library : Two 
Questions Often Asked 



arately that it has when com- 
bined. Buying in quantities 
means lower prices. 

Every district in the county is 
liable to purchase the same books, 
need them only a short time, and 
then allow (hem to become inac- 
tive material upon the shelves. If 
one person (the county librarian) 
does the purchasing, only as many 
duplicates are bought as are 
needed. This decrease in the 
number of duplicates adds to the 
purchasing power of the money. 

The longer the district school 
libraries pool their funds the 
larger becomes the collection of 
books for the use of the schools, 
making it possible to give them 
an almost unlimited supply. 

One school with six teachers 
received during its third year of 
county library service over seven 
hundred books, although it had 
only fifty dollars of library money 
to transfer to the county free 
library. The smallest rural school 
received not less than one hundred 
books. 

2. An expert buys the books. (A 
person must be a book expert in 
order to be a county libra -ian.) 
Having the county librarian 

purchase the books for the schools 
results in better selection of 
material, better editions, better 
bindings, and better prices. 

3. System and uniformity in 
preparation of books for circu- 
lation. 

As the books are bought and 
equipped for circulation at one 
center, there is uniformity of 
charging system, listing, etc., 
which makes for more satisfactory 
loaning and use. 

4. Prompt receipt of books when 
needed. 

A box of books sufficient in 
number to meet the needs U sent 
when school opens. 

By getting the booKs they need 
and when they need them, the

teachers and the pupils avoid all 
loss of time. 

Special requests from teachers 
for books are given prompt atten- 
tion. (The cost of transportation 
is paid by the county free library.) 

One of the greatest demands 
upon the district library fund is 
for supplementary material. With 
county free library service the 
schools receive all necessary sup- 
plementary books as well as other 
books. 

All dictionaries, encyclopedias, 
maps and necessary apparatus are 
purchased by the county librarian. 

5. All books returned when no 
longer needed. 

The collections of books sent to 
the various schools are returned 
to the county free library in part 
or as a whole when the schools 
no longer need them and fresh 
ones are sent to them. In this 
way live material is kept in con- 
stant circulation through the 
schools by the county free library. 

When school district libraries 
are operated independently the 
books become dead stock upon the 
shelves. The only fresh material 
is the limited supply purchased 
each year. 

6. Equal service to all districts — 
the new as well as the old, the 
isolated as well as the more 
centrally located. 

New school districts that have 
county free library service receive 
books when school opens and have 
as good library service as the dis- 
tricts that have been long estab- 
lished. 

Districts that are isolated, or 
not near a branch of the county 
free library, find the county free 
library service in the schools a 
source of pleasure and benefit, 
not only to the children, out also 
to the people of the district. 

7. County librarian visits schools. 
The county librarian visits the 

schools and becomes acquainted 
with the teachers and the pupils. 
She consults with the teacher in 
regard to the needs of the children 
and then sends books and appa- 



ratus that will be of the greatest 
help to them. 

She advises the teachers in 
regard to the best and latest 
books for children. Knowing the 
pupils enables the librarian to 
cooperate with the teacher in giv- 
ing them the best service. 
S. Teachers' library may join 

county free library. 

The law gives a county superin- 
tendent of schools the power to 
transfer to the county free library 
fund all moneys payable to the 
teachers' library fund. He may 
also transfer to the county free 
library all books and other 
property belonging to the teachers' 
library. 

The first year that the district 
libraries receive county free 
library service the transfer of the 
books from the teachers' library 
to the county free library means 
direct and immediate assistance to 
the schools, because it forms a 
nucleus from which the county 
librarian can draw to meet the 
needs of the teachers and pupils. 

With county free library service 
these books are made available to 
the schools ; without it, they 
remain in the office of the superin- 
tendent of schools. 

III. Opinions about it. 

Extract from address of Dr. Margaret 
E. Schallenberger, Commissioner of Ele- 
mentary Schools, Department of Public 
Instruction, Sacramento, Cal., before the 
National Education Association, St. Paul, 
Minn., July, 1914: 

An all-powerful factor in the rural 
school may be the library. In California 
we thought we had an ideal system. From 
the beginning of its existence the rural- 
school library has had its special fund ; 
consequently, as would happen very natu- 
rally, there are some excellent rural 
libraries in California and some almost 
worthless ones. In the old days either 
the teacher or the trustees purchased the 
books until all the money appropriated 
therefor had been spent. Today, how- 
ever, no book may be bought unless it 
be found upon a list made by the county 
board of education, so purchases are now 
more rational ; and lately a new law per- 
mits any library in the county, including 
the district-school libraries, to affiliate 
with the county library where there is one.

SERVICE TO SCHOOLS. 



235 



About half the counties of California 
have county libraries, and the number is 
rapidly growing. The books of an affiliat- 
ing library are turned over to the county 
librarian, who takes comp'ete charge of 
them., mending and fumigating, if neces- 
sary destroying, and continually distribut- 
ing. The rural school may have prac- 
tically any or all books it needs. The 
teacher sends in her request to this central 
distributor, and is supplied by parcel post 
or express, charges paid. Moreover, if 
the books asked for are not to be found 
in the county library, the state library 
has b Q en meeting the demands. This we 
are finding one of the most effective 
cooperating forces for the rural school. 
The state and county librar'es are for the 
benefit of the peopl Q and the rural school 
children are thus formally recognized as 
a part of the people. Through the school, 
too. the adult population are granted the 
same privilege and are supplied almost 
without exception with any books 
requested. 

May 6, 1914.* 
Hon. J. L. Giixis, 

State Librarian. 
Sacramento. Cal. 
My Dear Mr. Gillis : 

Referring to your request for an 
opinion about schools becoming a part of 
county free libraries in those counties 
where county free libraries are estab- 
lished, and thus receiving full library 
service such as is being given to others 
in those counties of the state : 

I believe it is important that they 
should have this service, as it undoubtedly 
gives them greater opportunities than 
they can hope to receive from the pur- 
chasing and building up of a library of 
their own. I see no reason why school 
trustees should not enter into an agree- 
ment with boards of supervisors, whereby, 
upon the payment of their library fund, 
the schools may become a part of the 
county free library and receive the 
service. 

Trustees of school districts have author- 
ity to enter into these agreements, and 
as this service has been so successful, 
I believe that it is for the best interest 
of all schools to make this arrangement 
and I recommend that they do so wherever 
it is possible. You may show this letter 
to those who want to know what recom- 
mendations I have made in regard to 
county free library service for schools. 
Very truly yours, 
(S'gnecl) Edward Hyatt, 

S perintendent of Public Instruction. 

Martinez, Cal., March 24, 1915. 
Mr. J. L. Gillis. 

California State Librarian, 
Sacramento, Cal. 
Dear Sir : 

On February 13th you wrote me asking 
that I make a statement as to the advant- 
ages to be derived by schools from the

county free library service. I placed this 
letter aside to answer when I could give 
it more attention and it escaped my mind 
and I trust that it is not too late to make 
a statement for your publication. 

Permit me to say that in Contra Costa 
County the county free library has been 
in operation for less than two years and 
that in this time there are one-half of the 
districts taking service from the county 
free library and I know of no single in- 
stance of any dissatisfaction ; on the 
other hand I have a number of reports 
and statements from teachers praising the 
service in the very highest terms. 

The schools that are taking advantage 
of the library service are getting more 
than it was possible when each school 
bought separately ; there is also the ad- 
vantage of exchanging. For instance, 
where a school has had a set of supple- 
mentary books and the class have finished 
reading them it is possible to turn the used 
books into the library for use in some 
othe" school and have a fresh set sent to 
the first school. Aside from these advan- 
tages, the schools have counsel and expert 
advice from the county librarian and I 
have yet to find a case where our libra- 
rian was called upon and failed to 
respond. From a b isiness standpoint, I 
consider Ihe county free library as 
applied to schools will solve one of our 
most exasperating problems, and that is 
the countrv school library. 

In the first place, the books are bought 
at better prices by th° county librarian. 

Secondly, unsuitable books are pre- 
vented from getting into libraries. 

Thirdly, book agents find it impossible 
to get their wares into schools. Dead and 
useless district libraries are overhauled 
and useful books repaired and put in 
circulation and the useless ones put out 
of circulation. 

It is simply a proposition of having 
expert librarians handle the book prob- 
lem for the school. With each teacher 
doing the buying, we find that when ex- 
change of teachers occurs, that the books 
purchased by the first will often be dis- 
approved of or disregarded by the second, 
so I would estimate that in the average 
county school library that, about ten per 
cent of the books, other than supplement- 
ary, are in actual service. I find in other 
schools that no special attention has been 
paid to cataloguing and duplicate volumes 
purchased merely on account of lack of 
knowledge of what was actually in the 
libraries. Our library books should be 
selected for their established value and 
not upon the whim of each succeeding 
teacher or the urgent appeal of the agent. 

On the whole, I am enthusiastically in 
favor of the county library plan as ap- 
plied to the schools aud look forward to 
the time when all will take advantage of 
the opportunity offered. We find, of 
course, that we have to go up against 
difficulties in the way of local prejudice 
and the false impressions that trustees 
and teacheis labor under as regards the 
functions and value of district school

libraries, but encouraging headway is be- 
ing made and I hope that in the next few 
years that we will see practically all of 
our districts enjoying the benefits of the 
county free library. 

Tours very respectfully, 
(Signed) William H. Hanlon, 
County Superintendent of Schools. 

The following are extracts from letters 
received from teachers : 

"The advantages in favor of the county 
free library system are so obvious that, 
once used, I am confident it will never be 
abandoned." 

"To those who are considering the mat- 
ter of adopting the county free library 
plan I would say that it is a success in 
all ways in our county. It is long past 
the experimental stage. Every school is 
well satisfied with the new way. Not 
one would give it up." 

"The cooperation of the county free 
library and the school spells progress. It 
has infused new vigor into the country 
school." 

"The teacher can get from the county 
free library absolutely what she wants." 

"Many of the parents and friends of 
the children come to the school to draw 
books and then stay to visit the school, 
so we become better acquainted and more 
willing to work together for the good of 
the school. Even the social life of the 
community has advanced and it all 
started from establishing a branch of the 
county library in our school." 

A teacher who had taught in a county 
where the school district libraries were 
branches of the county free library went 
for a year to another county without a 
county free library. She writes of her 
experience as follows : 

"I found a vast difference last term in 
teaching in a county without a county 
free library. I was librarian for two 
rooms. Seldom was a book taken out. 
The pupils would look over the names 
of the books, say 'Oh, I've read every- 
thing in there,' and pass out." 

"The cooperation between the county 
free library and the schools means money 
wisely spent and an investment well cared 
for." 

"Apparatus can be purchased much 
cheaper through the county library." 

"The trustees are relieved of the bur- 
den of selecting the books and caring for 
the library." 

"Schools get a bigger and better selec- 
tion of books than when the teacher or 
trustees buy them." 

"Another benefit is the increased pur 
chasing power of the library funds. The 
librarian is a trained buyer and secures 
special prices so that she gets nearly 
double value over what the trustees could 
do in buying." 



"The books have been selected by a 
librarian who has made a special study 
of the subject and who thoroughly under- 
stands the needs of the children and 
knows just what books will be interesting 
to them." 

"It is better to have the selection of 
the books in the hands of an efficient 
librarian than in the hands of trustees or 
teachers, who, in many instances, have 
not made any study of the subject." 

"It gives each teacher the chance to 
select the books she wants with the help 
of one who knows good books." 

"It is a great relief to have the books 
chosen and sent us by an able and well 
informed buyer, in the person of the 
county librarian. It does away with the 
former evil of inappropriate and useless 
books which often result from unwise 
selections by those who formerly had to 
do with the choosing." 

"The children have the advantage of 
reading good books, chosen by one who 
understands, instead of by an inexperi- 
enced teacher, or perhaps one who is 
lacking in literary appreciation." 

"We get a greater number of books, 
get them oftener, and obtain exactly the 
books we need." 

"We get an unlimited supply of books 
for our school. We are always able to 
get these books when we wish them." 
(Rural school of forty pupils.) 

"Most of the books in our district 
library are for the older children. The 
fact that the little ones who are just 
beginning to read need interesting little 
stories is entirely overlooked. On the 
other hand the books sent by the county 
librarian are for all ages, exactly as much 
attention being paid to the needs of the 
little ones as to the older ones." 

"Since we are allowed to exchange the 
present list for a new one when desired 
the material is always new to the pupils." 

"Few teachers know all of the best 
supplementary books. The county libra- 
rian does, for she is thoroughly trained 
to know them. At any time during 
the term the teacher can send for any 
books she may need and they will be sent 
within a week." 

"It has never been my good fortune 
before to teach in a county where the 
teacher's requirements for supplementary 
books were so thoroughly met." 

"We have been able to get material 
that has made our history, literature, and 
nature study of real vital interest to us." 

"Having a branch of the county free 
library in our school has been a great aid 
in teaching, as through it we can obtain 
any reference or supplementary book 
needed. Under the old way our library 
fund was so small that we could not order 
half enough supplementary books." 

"The library is an invaluable aid in 
getting supplementary books. So far I 
have all I need in every branch of study 



vol. 10, no. 2]

231 



which I never had before.'' (Large rural 
school of eight grades.) 

"All teachers do not care for the same 
reference books. The county librarian 
gives the teacher the ones desired." 

"Special sets of readers, etc., can be 
obtained." 

"Our greatest pleasure is in the great 
number of supplementary readers .for pri- 
mary grades." 

"By the county free library system we 
have all the supplementary readers we 
need. When once read by the class it is 
a great advantage to be able to send them 
back and get new ones without any cost." 
(School with six teachers.) 

"The children have the advantage of 
receiving a fresh supply of literature 
without banishing the other books to the 
top shelf of a hardly ever used library." 

"The fact that new books are continu- 
ally coming in creates interest in reading." 

"New books inspire the children to read. 
Even my little first grade pupils ask for 
a new book on an average each of one 
every two days and have their parents 
read to them." 



"Frequent arrival of new books inspires 
a desire to read." 

"One of the benefits is the interest that 
the changing of books gives to the chil- 
dren. There is always great excitement 
when new books come. Children who do 
not care for reading become interested 
over the new books, are anxious to see 
them, look them over, and take one to 
read. In this way children become 
readers." 

"The attractive bindings of the new 
books attract the children." 

"The children grow tired of seeing the 
books in the school district library." 

"At the close of school all the books 
are packed and shipped to the county 
librarian. They are cleaned, repaired, 
and fumigated and ready to send to other 
schools. An entirely new library each 
year. No expense ! No trouble !"

free library service to schools, communi-

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



All libraries are listed except elemen- 
tary public school and church libraries 
and those which belong to private indi- 
viduals. They are arranged alphabetically 
by place under counties and counties are 
arranged alphabetically. To determine 
the county in which any place is located 
see list following these introductory para- 
graphs. 

Those libraries are marked with an 
asterisk (*) which are not free to the 
public for either loan or reference pur- 
poses. 

Libraries marked with J are United 
States depository libraries : those marked 
with § are depositories for the Official 
Gazette of the Patent Office ; those marked 
with || are geological depositories ; those 
marked with 2 are Library of Congress 
card depositories. This information was 
revised in September, 1913. 

The months are abbreviated as follows :

Statistics are printed for the quarter, 
but are sent in by the libraries for each 
month separately in most cases. So that 
the figures for circulation may be uni- 
form, current magazines are included in 
the total whether reported that way or 
not. 

In an effort to have the statistics uni- 
form in reference to number of branches, 
any distributing point through which 
service is given directly from headquar- 
ters is counted as a branch. For exam- 
ple, a community branch of a county free 
library may serve not only the community 
but also several schools. Such a case 
would be considered one branch. Service 
is sometimes given to several class rooms 
in a school by serving each class room 
directly from headquarters instead of 
through the principal of the school for 
all classes. In such cases each class room 
is counted as a branch. This method of 
counting branches is subject to change if 
a more satisfactory plan is agreed upon 
later. 

Blanks for January, February and 
March statistics were sent to all of the 
libraries in March. 

There are in California 27 county free 
libraries ; 2 library district libraries ; 3 
high school district libraries ; 132 libraries 
supported by city taxation ; 66 law li- 



braries, of which 55 are county law 
libraries ; 5S county teachers' libraries ; 
331 libraries in educational institutions, 
of which 6 are universities. 7 colleges, 8 
normal schools, 255 public high schools, 
65 private schools and other institutions ; 
15 miscellaneous institution libraries and 
72 association or society libraries ; 10 
subscription libraries. In connection 
with the above libraries there are 1379 
branches and deposit stations.
