Report of County Free Library Sign 
Committee. 

The "Sign" Committee humbly and re- 
spectfully submits another report. 

The real secret of our trouble in supply- 
ing the signs was not discovered until 
November 1, when the Chairman visited 
the Chicago office and talked with Mr 
►Simmons, the president of the Enameled 
Steel Sign Company. 

She found that the company were job- 
bers, having the work done in many enam- 
eled steel factories. Our piece of work 
was contracted for with a Pennsylvania 
factory which, ever since the placing of 
the order, has had great difficulty in get- 
ting and keeping skilled workmen. (They 
say our sign is the most particular they 
have ever done.) They are near the 
munition factories and their workmen are 
daily invited to better wages in the muni- 
tion plants. 

They only made this the excuse for 
delay until last September, when they 
refused to fulfill the contract with the Chi- 
cago company, reserving all their working 
force for their larger less difficult orders. 

In direct conversation with Mr Sim- 
mons (the correspondence through their 
Pacific Coast agent had complicated 
rather than simplified the matter) it was 
apparent that he could place our future 
orders with another factory and that he 



vol. 12, no. 1] 



COUNTY LIBRARIANS' CONVENTION. 



could promise satisfactory workmanship 
and reasonable delivery. 

Of course the prices are greatly ad- 
vanced except for the unfilled part of the 
original order. 

This is the new schedule : 

"If 100 signs are ordered and 
shipped in the lot price to be $2.30 
each. 

If 250 signs are ordered and shipped 
in the lot price to be $2.06 each. 

If 500 signs are ordered and shipped 
in the lot price to be $1.94 each. 

Prices net f. o. b. factory, signs to be 
same as those we have been furnish- 
ing you and screws to be charged for 
extra. 

These prices are for immediate ac- 
ceptance and subject to market 
changes in the future. 

Signs to. be delivered in about three 
(3) months from receipt of order by 
Chicago office. 

Unfinished original order to be filled 
at original price. — " 

There has been some talk of using a 
suit 'sign giving the name of the branch, 
size to be 3" by 12". The price will be 
$2.95 each f. o. b. factory. Each sign's 
showing a different name accounts for the 
high price. 

Mrs Frances Burns Linn, 

Chairman. 

Report of Forms and Blanks Committee. 

At this stage in County Library devel- 
opment it is important that statistics 
should accomplish two things — they should 
show uniformity and should indicate the 
growth. Perhaps more statistics are 
needed now than will be later. Figures 
seem to help greatly in organizing and 
developing and in making arguments foi 
more funds. 

Now that we are developing so greatly 
in regard to school library service, should 
not that service have a separate count 
distinct from a community branch, which 
may or may not be in the school building? 
Should they not at this stage of develop- 
ment be counted as two branches ? How 
else can we show that community service 
is given through a certain number of cen- 
ters and school service through a certain 
number, and how else can we compare one 
county with another when both have the 
same number of branches but one serving 
community alone, the other both school 
and community through a branch? This 



may not be the final decision but for the 
present, to bring out the development, this 
plan which is outlined on page 592 of 
July News Notes of California Libraries, 
has been adopted. 

As to the date of establishment of a 
branch it is counted that a community 
branch is established when all arrange- 
ments are perfected and a school district 
branch as established on the date the dis- 
trict joins. 

It is very difficult to decide definitely 
what statistics are essential, but the points 
to be brought out are those which show 
the activities of the library and the tend- 
encies of its growth and use. For this, 
we need to know — 

Receipts and itemized expenditures. 

Accessions and withdrawals 

Books and other material shipped to 

and returned from branches 
Number and kind of branches 
Number of cardholders 
Use of books, magazines and other 

material 
Special requests, assistance received 
from State Library and other inter- 
library loans 

More work has been done by the com- 
mittee on forms and blanks than the re- 
sults show. It is a difficult thing to decide 
on a uniform blank which will apply to 
the needs of the varyingly different libra- 
ries, and at a period of county library 
growth When new developments are con- 
tinually occurring. 

At the County Librarians' convention 
at Sacramento in January, 391G, a group 
of interested county librarians meeting 
informally with the committee decided 
upon the following : 

Choice between — ■ 

(1) Ordinary accession record 

(2) Record showing summary of ac- 

cessions 

(1) Ordinary shelf-list record 

(2) Combination accession and shelf 

record 

Work is being done on the statistics 
sheet. 

Anne Hadden, 

Chairman.

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 $ 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 J are Library of Congress 
card depositories. This information was 
revised in March, 1916. 

Branches of the county free library re- 
ceive supplementary library service from 
the State Library free of transportation 
charges with the exception of those 
branches where the name is in italic. 
When the branch has a reading room, it 
is indicated by r.r. in the list of branches 
under county free library. 

The months are abbreviated as follows : 



January Ja 
February F 
March Mr 
April Ap 
May My 
June Je 



July Jl 
August Ag 
September S 
October O 
November N 
December D 



Statistics are printed for the quarter. 
In order that the figures for circulation 
may be uniform, current magazines are 
included in the total whether reported 
that way or not. 

An effort is being made to have the 
statistics uniform in reference to number 
of branches. Any distributing point 
through which service is given directly 
from headquarters is counted as a branch. 
For example, in a school with several 
class rooms, if service is given directly to 
each class room separately, each room 
served is counted as a branch. But, on 
the other hand, if a school district has 
joined and both school and community 
service are given from one location, such 
service is counted as two branches. 

Blanks for October, November and 
December statistics were sent to all li- 
braries, except county teachers' libraries. 



in December. Statistics for county teach- 
ers' libraries were taken from the annual 
reports of county superintendents of 
schools on file in the office of the State 
Superintendent of Public Instruction. 

There are in California 88 county free 
libraries (35 iu operation) ; 3 library dis- 
trict libraries ; 4 high school district li- 
braries ; 134 libraries supported by city

public libraries that are included in 
county free library service (23 under sec. 
3; IS under sec. 16; 14 under Pol. C. 
sec. 4041) ; 66 law libraries, of which 55 
are county law libraries ; 58 county teach- 
ers' libraries ; 357 libraries in educational 
institutions, of which 6 are universities, 
7 colleges, S normal schools, 271 public 
high schools, 65 private schools and other 
institutions ; 45 miscellaneous institution 
libraries and 66 association or society 
libraries ; 33 subscription libraries. In 
connection with the above libraries are 
2444 branches and deposit stations.

SAN FRANCISCO— Continued. 

Other features also supplementary to 
the service of other libraries of California 
are to be added. For example, the Sutro 
Branch has offered to act as a depository 
for the publications of California pub- 
lishers. The response to this invitation 
has been most enthusiastic and shows 
that the publishers will make this plan a 
success. The publications thus deposited 
will be for the reference use of those 
considering purchase and also for infor- 
mation in reference to the work of the 
California publishers. 

The California Genealogical Society is 
considering depositing its Library in the 
Sutro Branch and several individual 
owners of private genealogical collections 
are also planning to deposit. If this is 
done, further plans will be carried out 
toward making the Branch the head- 
quarters for information about the loca- 
tion of genealogical material in the state. 

Another plan is that important Cali- 
fornia historical material that is in San 
Francisco and vicinity be located and 
gathered in when possible in order to 
have it in fireproof quarters and in that 
way be sure that it is preserved for the 
present and future student of California 
history. Charles B. Turrill has been 
engaged to take charge of this part of 
the work of the Branch. 

The blind borrowers in San Francisco 
are invited to telephone their requests 
for embossed books to the Branch (West 
3046) and these requests will be imme- 
diately forwarded to the State Library 
in Sacramento for attention.
