[Jan., 1924 



A CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK PARTY. 



By Frances Burkbt, Librarian 

"Fools rush in where angels fear to 
tread." During the days preceding 
Children's Book Week, my assistant and 
I felt that these words had been written 
expressly for us. The book party grew 
out of a desire to do something for the 
children that would increase their inter- 
est in books and at the same time be a 
bit out of the ordinary. We have had 
book talks, essays and book displays 
every year, and while the results have 
always been gratifying, we longed to do 
something different. We did. 

In a moment of mental aberration we 
decided on a party, the guests to be the 
children from all parts of the county. I 
explained my plans — Avhich were very 
meager at this stage — to the general 
supervisor and asked her cooperation. 
Her report after visiting several schools 
was terrifying, for we thought that if we 
could interest sixty or seventy children 
in the plan, we would do well. We issued 
invitations to every elementary school, 
whether or not it was cooperating with 
the county library. Every child was re- 
quested to come dressed to represent some 
character from a book he had read, and 
was to be prepared to tell the story. 

As the library was too small to accom- 
modate our guests, we asked permission 
to use the Woman's Club Room, thinking 
this would be large enough. As our 
acceptances poured in, we were driven to 
hunt still larger quarters. My assistant 
came to the rescue with the idea of hold- 
ing the party in the open, which would 
be ideal providing the weather was fine. 
The spot selected was in an oak grove at 
the edge of town and afforded plenty of 
space for games and contests. There was 
only one drawback and that was the 
weather. It was cold and looked like 
'■ain, but the Fates were on our side for 
November 11th proved one of the most 
delightful days of the Fall. 

Our invitations read "from two to 
four in the afternoon" but when we 
arrived at the clubroom before one 
o'clock of the eventful day, we were 
greeted by a witch, the queen of hearts 
and several other celebrities. They en- 
tertained themselves by looking at the 
Kook Week posters we had arranged in 



, Amador County Free Library. 

the room. These had been made by the 
children in the rural schools and were 
most attractive. By two o'clock over a 
hundred and twenty-five children, be- 
sides teachers, mothers and fathers, had 
arrived. 

I had pressed the Boy Scouts into 
service and they were all present in full 
uniform. We wished to observe Armis- 
tice Day in .some manner, so the patrol 
leader gave a short talk on the meaning 
of the holiday and led the audience in 
the salute to the flag. After this each 
child in turn walked to the center of the 
room and the rest guessed the character 
represented. Only one from each school 
told his story for the time wa.s limited. 
It was splendid to see how the children 
entered into the spirit of the affair and 
without a great amount of trouble had 
made costumes which could be easily 
recognized as belonging to some well 
known book character. 

They were all there from the elaborate 
Ozma of Oz — in trailing white and glit- 
tering tinsel — to the little Austrian girl 
(her father was one of the victims of 
the Argonaut disaster) who came dressed 
in a clean gingham dress, but told me she 
was "the little white rabbit." The Old- 
Fashioned Girl, Rebecca of Sunnybrook 
Farm, Helen's Babies, Jack the Giant 
Killer, the Gingerbread Boy, a Signer of 
the Declaration of Independence, Dr. 
Doolittle and dozens of other favorites 
made their bow to the audience. 

At the request of the business men and 
other grown-ups, we formed a procession 
and marched through Main street out to 
the grove. The formation was unique. 
At the head of the procession rode the 
Knight of the X Bar B. Following him 
came the drum corps, next the Boy 
Scouts, then by twos the rest of the com- 
pany. We gathered more children as we 
went through the streets, so that by the 
time we arrived at our destination, we 
had a much larger crowd than when we 
started. 

For an hour, games were played and 
later refreshments of ice-cream cones, 
cookies and candy were served. It was 
after four o'clock when the first guests 
left, and by five the hostesses had gathered

up the remains of the feast and departed 
for their homes. 

Apart from the social side of the 
affair, which alone was worth the trouble, 
the book party accomplished the very 
thing we had hoped for. Increased inter- 
est in reading more and better books was 
noticeable in the towns, hut the results 
were more gratifying in some of the 
rural districts. One teacher brought four 
of her pupils in a Ford over many miles 
of rough roads. This was the fir.st time 
these children had been outside their com- 



munity. They visited the library before 
they went home and chose the books they 
wanted from the shelves. Prior to this 
there had been practically no home 
reading done in that school, but since 
that time we have sent them several 
shipments. This is but one of several 
instances. 

It seemed a big undertaking, but i; 
really proved a success from every stand- 
point, and the next one — for there will 
be another as the children have asked for 
one next year — will not be such an effort, 
for we have a basis on which to work.

During the quarter the principal item 
of interest was the book review contest 
held as a feature of Children's Book 
Week. The Board of Library Trustees 
offered three prizes, each a beautiful 
book, one to the sixth, one to tlie seventh, 
and one to the eighth grade pupils for the 
best book re^^ews submitted. 

The school department, under the direc- 
tion of Superintendent of Schools C. J. 
Du Four, assisted in every possible way. 
On the Friday evening of Book Week, an 
entertainment yras held at the Main Li- 
brary with about 300 children in attend- 
ance. The successful competitors read 
their reviews after which the prizes were 
awarded. The contest did so much to 
stimulate interest m children's reading 
that it will probably become a yearly 
feature of our work.

Director of the Public Health Center, and

Miss Mary Barmby, County Librarian, 
has adopted the library as a sort of step- 
child and has been very helpful with 
advice and assistance. The library is 
maintained by the Public Health Center, 
which is a county institution, but as a 
part of the Health Education Depart- 
ment it receives assistance from the 
Community Chest. 

As to the services rendered : The library 
contains at present 362 books on public 
health topics, as General Public Health, 
Child and Maternal Hygiene, Personal 
Hygiene, Mental Hygiene, Communicable 
Diseases, Poods and Nutrition, etc. In 
purchasing the books the bibliography on 
public health issued last spring by the 
National Health Council was used as a 
basis for selection and all the books 
recommended were purchased with the 
exception of a few technical volumes. To 
this nucleus have been and are being 
added books which are carefully chosen 
on authoritative recommendations. In 
addition to the books we have about 1000 
pamphlets arranged in two files, a sub- 
ject file and a source and information file. 
The collections are designed to give in- 
formation in recent pamphlet form on 
public health topics and to show what 
material can be obtained from the various 
health and welfare organizations, national 
and local. On the magazine table are 
displayed current numbers of all the 
leading public health and welfare maga- 
zines and bulletins, some forty coming 
to the library each month. Books, 
pamphlets and magazines all circulate. 

In addition to these usual library ser- 
vices the Public Health Librai-y has a 
portable motion picture machine and 
three films, a balopticon and a collection 
of lantern slides, a set of food models, a 
collection of anatomical models and 
charts, and a collection of nearly 200 
posters. All of this material is loaned 
for lectures, exhibits and classroom use. 

The library is open to any interested 
resident of Alameda County. School 
teachers, school nurses, visiting nurses,

social workers, mothers, university and 
high school students, grade pupils, parent- 
teacher associations and mothers' clubs 
are all numbered among our borrowers. 
The library is being used more and more 
each month as the public health workers 
discover what very real help we can give 
them, and it is the hope of the Public 
Health Center that the Public Health 
Library may be an influence for better 
public health in Alameda County.

The annual Custodians' Meeting was 
held in the Branch Department at the 
main library on October 31st, beginning 
at ten o'clock. There were twenty-two 
custodians and the entire staff from the 
main library in attendance. Miss Mc- 
Cardle presided and made the opening 
address, introducing the new custodians 
and calling the roll of all present so that 
everyone would feel acquainted. The 
rest of the morning was taken up with 
short talks bj^ members of the staff on 
different phases of the work, followed by 
open discussions on each. Luncheon was 
served at the library by the staff, all re- 
maining to meet the visitors and get in 
closer touch during this social hour. 
After luncheon Miss Yager, Children's 
Librarian, gave a talk on her work. Miss 
Newcomet, Reference Librarian, reviewed

one of the new books on biography. She 
was followed by Miss Essae Culver, Li- 
brarian of Merced County and President 
of the Fourth District of the California 
Library Association, who gave a most 
inspiring talk. Miss Culver made every- 
one feel that her work, no matter how 
small, was a very valuable part of the 
whole scheme of county library service. 
The meeting closed with talks by the 
custodians on the ways they are em- 
ploying to attract the people to the 
library. 

Children's Book Week was observed 
November 11th to the 18th in all the 
larger branches and a good many schools. 
A book contest was held in the upper 
grades, each grade having a problem 
which included an essay about some char- 
acter in one of the books read. There 
were many essays sent in and the prizes 
of illustrated books have been awarded 
to three children and honorable mention 
to three others. The week was observed 
in different ways in the branches, b,y 
book displays in conspicuous places, 
visits to the schools, story hours, etc. 

Christmas was celebrated in several of 
the larger branches. Fresno had a large 
tree in the main reading room, the gift 
of one of the lumber companies. At 
Sanger Branch there was a tree for the 
story hour children in the children's 
room on the Saturday before Christmas. 
Christmas stories were told and each 
child received a gift. Reedley Branch 
also had a tree donated and decorated by 
some of the interested people of the town. 
At the main library the staff enjoyed a 
tree of their own. The party was held 
in the big room downstairs and each one 
received a gift, generally a joke on the 
recipient. After the distribution of the 
gifts the staff had luncheon together. 

Hopewell School District and Butler 
School District have suspended this year. 
Lerona District, which Avas served last 
year as an emergency school, is now an 
independent school and has joined the 
library. Las Deltas, a new district, has 
also come in. We are now serving two 
emergency schools, the Nutritional Home 
and the Chiwanakee School. 

The work having been completed at 
some of the lower camps of the Southern 
California Edison Co., the branches at

The Glenn County Library this year 
held during- Children's Book Week attrac- 
tive exhibits of new juvenile books, in 
Bayliss, Hamilton City and Orland 
branches and at the Main Office in Wil- 
lows. A story hour was held for the 
children in each of these branches by 
Martha June Coleman, of the County 
Library Staff. At Bayliss and Hamilton 
City the children came to the library 
during school hours with their teachers. 
At Orland a general invitation was ex- 
tended to the children of the 3d, 4th, 5th 
and Gth grades. At the hours appointed 
the Library was filled to the brim with 
eager boys and girls. To judge from the 
enthusiasm of children and custodians 
these story hours were a great success. 

December 3d the Librarian read a 
paper on some of the new books of the 
season before the Monday Afternoon 
Club of Willows. 

The County Library Branch at Artois 
has been reopened in an attractive library 
room at the grammar school, with Mr 
Stanley Thompson as custodian. Mrs 
W. W. Koehler is the new custodian at 
Ord Branch. 

The staff of the Library is each week 
arranging an attractive window display 
for the main office in Willows ; Miss 
Coleman supplies the newspapers of the 
county with reviews, etc., of the books 
thus displayed. The many requests re- 
ceived for these books prove again that 
■'it pays to advertise."

We feel very much encouraged because 
the members are not only very much in-

member has withdrawn. We have been 
holding the class regularly since October 
1. and have finished the artists on the 
H. W. Wilson Study Outline on Italian 
Art, through the loth century. 

The pictures have been a great help 
and inspiration to the class, especially 
during the two lessons in which we 
studied them intensively. The members 
have come in also during the week to 
study the pictures, as well as the gen- 
eral public. The most interesting people 
who came to see them were twenty high 
school girls and their teacher. Only four 
of them did not seem to be interested. 
The pupils came in small numbers dur-

interested, we gave a short sketch of each

Miss Aline Barnsdall has offered to 
the city her magnificent estate on tlie 
summit of Olive Hill at the corner of 
Vermont Avenue and Hollywood Boule-

of ground which is intended as a park, 
and her residence designed by the famous

wishe-s this residence to be maintained by 
the I'ublic Librarj' for the people of the

way between Miss Barnsdall, the City 
Council, the Park Commission and the 
Library Board which it is hoped will 
result in a satisfactory adjustment of all 
conditions so that the citizens of Los

Barnsdall's splendid gift not later than 
this summer. 

Through the generosity and public 
spirit of Mr F. W. Braun the Public 
Library has been able to open a new

disposal of the library two of his store- 
rooms, rent free for two years, and has 
offered to contribute $500 a year toward 
expen.ses. The Library accepted his gift 
and the branch was opened early in 
December.

This last year has been one of the 
greatest in activities since the organiza- 
tion of the Association. The member- 
ship has increased and the research work 
grown. Through the generosity of Dr 
Barlow there has been much binding of 
magazines, old files being filled out by 
gifts from the Lane Library and the 
Mayo Clinic, as well as by purchase from 
publishers and gifts from individuals. 
There has been a^ gift of many foreign 
magazines, and books added by gift and 
purchase.

Seven beautiful bronze tablets have re- 
cently been placed in the library in token 
of appreciation of seven very valuable 
collections of books and manuscripts, that 
have been placed with the Society during 
the past few years. The gifts are the 
following : 

In 1910 Gen. John Green Ballance, 
U. S. A., of Los Angeles, gift of Army 
records. 

In 1915 Capt. Joseph Davis, of Holly- 
wood, gift of New England and other 
historical records. 

In 1918, a large number of members of 
the various chapters of the Daughters of 
the American Revolution, not only of 
California, but in many parts of the 
United States, began to give valuable 
historical and genealogical records to the 
library of the California Society. This 
has since been regularly added to. 

In 1920, the heirs of the late Hon. 
WUliam Matthew Marine of Baltimore, 
Maryland, gave a valuable collection of 
historical and reference works on the 
southern states and on the civil war. 

In 1921, Warren Chamberlain Tudbury, 
of Berkeley, California, his entire collec- 
tion of valuable genealogical and his- 
torical manuscripts and reference works. 

In 1922, Mrs Elizabeth K. Hills, of 
Marblehead, Massachusetts, the very valu- 
able collection of her late brother, Wil- 
lard Aetherton Nichols, of Redlands, Cali- 
fornia.

Government in various foreign countries 
as its agricultural authority, his dis- 
tinctive collection of American history 
and allied works. 

Many others have given valuable small 
collections to the Society. But these 
above represent the great gifts of value 
and importance so far received by the 
Society. Frequently inquiry is made as 
to whether the Society will accept col- 
lections either large or small. The 
Society does everything it can to encour- 
age placing in the library either large or 
small collections.

The Library of the Research Depart- 
ment of the Los Angeles Chamber of 
Commerce is classifying all of the studies, 
surveys, and compilations which it makes 
for the members of the Chamber as well 
as for outside inquirers in accordance 
with the best library practise. 

This will make the finding of all data 
an easy matter when the cataloging of 
all the literature in the Chamber's files is 
brought into one uniform system. The 
library contains statistical data of every 
sort, covered by books, pamphlets, trade 
literature, clippings, maps, charts, etc. 
Cataloging of all the large collections 
already owned by the Chamber will soon 
be undertaken.

Miss Beryl Lewis and Miss Violet

library to students in the two junior high 
schools in November and December. 
These lessons were given in the English 
periods at the school buildings, instead 
of at the library as heretofore. This 
was at the request of the teachers, who 
had found class trips to the library to 
consume too much time. Lessons to the 
lower grades ai'e to be given later in the 
year. 

Children's Book Week was observed as 
usual. The novel features this year were 
a table of good juvenile periodicals, of 
inexpensive editions, of Bible stories and 
editions of the Bible for a child's own 
possession, and of colored prints suitable 
for a child's room, but very inexpensive. 
Ten inches of display space were engaged 
in each new.spaper. In addition, we were 
given a generous amount of space for 
write-ups. Probably the prints and the 
Bible stories were the most popular

Our efforts during November were con- 
centrated on Children's Book Week and 
Education Week which we combined in 
our posters and publicity. We had the 
usual exhibits of books for parents and 
children to look over until after Christmas 
and many gifts were selected in this way. 
A parade of the "Best sellers of long 
ago" was put on at the weekly luncheon 
of the Ad Club, girls from the county, 
state and city, libraries participating. In 
choosing the characters which each was 
to represent, their likeness to the originals 
was used as the basis of selection. As 
each book was taken from the shelf by 
the Juvenile Librarian of the City Li- 
brary, it needed no printed caption for 
the audience to recognize old favorites, 
so excellent was the makeup of each one. 

An entirely voluntary contribution was 
made to the week's activities by the David 
Lubin School. Under the direction of the 
teachers, a book pageant was presented 
in which over 200 children participated. 
Characters from Mother Goose, history 
and literature, legendary heroes and hero- 
ines, fascinating fairies and horrible gob- 
lins, in a series of four reels, stepped 
through the pages of an enormous book, 
forming a colorful picture not soon to be 
forgotten. 

These two events gave more widespread 
publicity to the purpose of the week than 
anything we have done, and developed a 
fine spirit of civic consciousness, since 
they brought into close cooperation the 
business world, the home, the school and 
the library.

During Children's Book Week, Novem- 
ber 11 to 17, there were special displays 
of recommended books. An essay contest 
was held in the 4th,' 5th audi 0th grades 
of the city, the children submitting com- 
positions on the subject "My favorite 
book and why." A winner from all the 
4th grades, from all the 5th and all the 
6th was chosen and to each was given an 
illustrated copy of the book about which 
he or she wrote. On Saturday morning 
of this week a special matinee was held 
at one of the local theaters and the pic- 
ture Huckleberry Finn was shown. About 
400 children attended. Talks on chil- 
dren's books were given at some of the 
clubs. Special emphasis has been placed 
on the purchase of children's books and 
the result has been an increased interest 
in the children's department. There have 
been between eighty and one hundred 
children present at story-hour each Satur- 
day ; it has been held out in the park 
every Saturday but two this winter. 

Much interest, has also been shown in 
the work with the grade schools in teach- 
ing the children the use of the library. 
For two months three grades a week have 
been coming to the library and have 
received instniction under Miss Pew, the 
Children's Librarian. A new deposit sta- 
tion was established at the Lincoln Gram- 
mar School, making a total of four schools 
served ja this way.

Miss Sarah Williamson, formerly of 
the Staff but now attending the University 
of California, supplied during the Christ- 
mas vacation and catalogued 492 French 
bookB, an anonymous gift to the library. 
This very valuable collection of books, 
published in France, contains the complete 
works of Voltaire, Rousseau, Florian, 
Crebillon, and many others. All the 
volumes are bound in calf. 

Miss Inez Smith, a graduate of the 
University of Redlands, completed her

The San Diego Public Library has been 
allowed by the city council a budget of 
7A cents on each $100 worth of property 
valuation for 1924. This amounts to 
$75,000. Of it $50,000 is to be spent for 
salaries. The book fund, which is partly 
made up of fines, approximates $12,000. 
The periodical fund, including magazines 
for nine branches and stations as well as 
the main circulating and reference collec- 
tions, is $2000, and the bindery cTiarges 
are $6000. 

Our annual report for 1923 which has 
recently been filed with the mayor phowg

an annual circulation of 919,104 books. 
This is a per capita average of 17.5 books 
a year for each registered boiTower. As 
our increase in 1923 was nearly 10 per 
cent over the total circulation of 1922, 
we expect to reach the million mark in 
the present year. 

To compare our records today with 
those of a decade ago shows that in 1913 
each book issued cost the taxpayer 12i 
cents, while last year the cost per volume 
circulated was less than S cents, an espe- 
cially encouraging decrease in view of the 
fact that the government reports an aver- 
age rise of 5tt per cent in the cost of all 
commodities in the last ten years. 

The overcrowded conditions in the main 
libraiy are to be partially relieved the 
first of March when the reading-room, 
children's department and catalog depart- 
ment are to be moved to a new annex. 
They will occupy the entire second floor 
of the Streicher Building, diagonally 
across E street from the main library at 
the southwest corner of Eighth and E 
streets. They have been secured on a 
three years' lease. At the end of that 
time we optimistically believe that bonds 
for a new main building will have been 
achieved. An attempt is to be made to 
put the library bonds on the ballot at the 
next general election, in March, 1925. 

Five members of our staff. Miss Peck, 
Miss Woodworth, Miss Patridge, Miss 
Dysart and Miss Warren, went to Alham- 
bra for the Gth district meeting of the 
C. L. A. on January 26. 

Miss Mary Van Wagenen, who has been 
head of our business and documents de- 
partment since 1919, was married on 
Christmas to Mr Howard Fraser of San 
Diego. Fortunately for the library, Mrs 
Fraser will remain on our staff.

The library has replaced its former

signed in keeping with the facade of the 
building itself and producing a miniature 
effect. (Picture on file at State Library 
for lending.) The cases, which are 
located on either side of the main entrance 
to the library, have three exi>osures, fac- 
ing respectively the street, the west side- 
walk approach and the east sidewalk 
approach. The miniature character of 
the structures themselves proves an 
attraction. 

The contents are automatically re- 
newed, each book, when called for, being 
replaced by another at the time. This 
keeps the display continuously fresh, as 
no one book ever remains long in the case 
before requested.

San Luis Obispo- — Continued. 

On December 31 the San Luis Chamber 
of Commerce staged a library luncheon. 
A delightful program of music and recita- 
tion was given, after which Miss Flo 
Gantz told of library service in the county 
and Mrs E. L. Kellogg gave a talk on the 
service rendered by the city library. It 
was an excellent opportunity for the best 
kind of library publicity — ^talking library 
before the business men of the community 
— and good results have been noted. 

The twelve-hour service inaugurated 
recently is proving very popular and is 
bringing to the library patrons who for- 
merly found it inconvenient or impossible 
to avail themselves of library privileges. 

Just before Thanksgiving the librarian 
told a group of stories appropriate to the 
holiday to a large audience of children 
at the Weekly Bible School of the Presby- 
terian Church. The Saturday after 
Thanksgiving a story hour was held at 
the library for children of the first, 
second, and third grades. Stories were 
told by the librarian and first assistant 
and were greatly enjoyed by a good sized 
audience.

In order to furnish framed pictures to 
each of the many elementary schoolrooms 
in the county, the help of manual training- 
classes of various schools was enlisted. 
The first set of twenty-five frames, made 
by the McCloud High School, has reached 
the library. The Yreka High School also 
is making twenty-five, and the Weed 
Grammar school thirty-seven. The frames 
now ready are of oak, very well made, at 
a cost to the library of only 40 cents a 
frame. Thus the cooperation of the 
schools is a great aid in stretching funds.

The State Library registers all 
library workers in California who are 
looking for positions and all from outside 
the state who wish to come here. Also 
it will be glad to know of libraries' that 
want head librarians or assistants in any 
branch of their work. In writing for 
recommendations, libraries are urged to 



be as specific as possible, especially in 
regard to time position must be filled and

DISTRICT MEETINGS. 
First District Meeting. 

The meeting of the First District of the 
California Library Association in Oak- 
land, on November 17, 1923, was of a 
"progressive" nature, the guests assem- 
bling at the Public Museum at 10 o'clock, 
proceeding from there to the Snow 
Museum, and then to the Hotel Oakland 
for luncheon and the afternoon's session. 

After a welcome from the Mayor's 
Secretary, the moving pictures of the 
H. A. Snow African Expedition were 
shown at the museum, Mr Snow himself 
being present and contributing greatly to 
the enjoyment of the guests by his 
explanations and reminiscences. With 
interest whetted by the pictures, the dele- 
gates journeyed to the Snow Museum, 
where Mr Snow's trophies are displaj-ed

in a most attractivo maniipr, from the 
skins and habitat gronps inside the build- 
ing:, to tlie animals and birds wliich dwell 
in the spacious grounds, presided over by 
the two lion cubs who roared a greeting 
in the most approved fashion. 

A short walk brought the company to 
the Hotel Oakland, where, after luncheon, 
the afternoon session was held in the south 
room. "Art in the Library" was the gen- 
eral sub.iect of the meeting, and the audi- 
ence was again treated to a visual exposi- 
tion of the topic by the display of two 
beautiful pictui'es painted by Miss Calthea 
Vivian, an artist of note, who was the 
first speaker. After a brief talk on mod- 
ern art, which she has recently studied in 
Europe, Miss Vivian gave the audience a 
bibliography of the subject, her scholarly 
reviews and keen comments proving so 
interesting that everyone present must 
have resolved not only to purchase all of 
the books for his or her library, but to 
read them as soon as possible. A second 
bibliography covered general books on art 
appreciation, especially some of the more 
recently published titles. 

Miss Florence Browne, formerly Chil- 
dren's Librarian of the Oakland Free 
Library, led the discussion of the next 
topic, "The circulation of art books and 
pictures in the library." Miss Browne 
gave a histoi'y and description of the Oak- 
land Library's picture collection, which 
now totals more than 70,000 pieces and 
consists of mounted pictures, clippings, 
stereographs, post cards and posters. Miss 
lone Tucker, Children's Librarian of the 
Berkeley Public Library, described the 
picture collection on file there, and spoke 
of its growth and rapidly increasing use- 
fulness. The San Francisco Public Li- 
brary, Miss E. J. Sturges reported, does 
not have a picture collection at present, 
but books and magazines are indexed by 
the Reference Department, and pictures 
on many subjects thus made avaiilable. 
The Alameda Public Librai-y has just 
started a picture collection. 

Two groups of songs sung by Miss 
Beulah Masterson of the Fruitvale Branch 
of the Oakland Library were most appro- 
priate additions to a program with this 
subject, being beautiful selections, artisti- 
cally rendered. 

Reports on recent and interesting events 
in First District libraries were given by 



representatives from each library, after 
which the meeting adjourned. 

Lucie C. Nye, Secretary. 

Second District Meeting. 

The Second District meeting of the 
California Library Association was held 
at Santa Cruz at Casa del Rey Hotel, 
November 17, 1923. Upon arrival lunch- 
eon was served in the dining room or the 
hotel. The guests found at their places 
charming photographs of scenery in and 
about Santa Cruz, autographed by the 
artist. The tables were most artistically 
decorated with baskets of zinnias and 
autumn foliage. Mr Samuel Leask made 
a few remarks of welcome. 

After the luncheon the meeting was 
called to order by Miss Norah McNeill, 
the president of the district. Chairs were 
grouped around the piano in the lobby of 
the hotel. Mr Kunitz delighted the audi- 
tors with a solo, very graciously respond- 
ing to an encore. 

Karl x^dams. Superintendent of Schools 
of Santa Ciiiz, took for the subject of his 
address, "Books and a child," in which he 
gave some pleasant reminiscences of his 
own reading as a child. His talk covered 
a wide range, dealing with the child's 
reading, the work with the schools, the 
advantages that teachers may have in 
what is offered the schools by the library, 
and the desirability of closer cooperation 
between the library workers and teachers 
as many of their problems are basically 
the same. 

Mrs Coates of Santa Cruz gave two 
readings — a humorous monologue and a 
poem, "Home," by Edgar Guest. 

The subject of Children's Book Week in 
rural communities was taken up, Mrs A. 
G. AVhitbeck, of Contra Costa County 
Free Libiary, leading. Miss Mary Barmby, 
of Alameda County Free Library, reported 
that with the cooperation of the Superin- 
tendent of Schools the teachers were 
directed to have the childreia make posters 
for each of their branch libraries to be 
sent later to the county office for judging 
and public notice. Books were shown in 
nine branches and story hours held in five 
and book lists sent to each branch. 

Miss Stella Huntington, of Santa Clara 
County Free Library, reported that they 
sent out collections of books to four large 
branches, a copy of the "Bookshelf" to all 
branches and schools and maintained in

tlae main library an exhibit of books, 
featuring the moderately priced book. 
Miss Anne Hadden, of Monterey County 
Free LibraiT, reported through Miss 
Esther R. Ross that they celebrated the 
week rather early at Santa Oruz at the 
Teacher's Institute. They showed both 
the old classics and the newer and cheaper 
editions. Miss McNeill explained the 
book-week contest as conducted by iie 
library and the schools in Richmond. 

Mrs Whitbeck told of her program which 
was extended over the entire month of 
November and in which she visited as 
many clubs and P. T. A. meetings as she 
could, speaking sometimes both afternoon 
and evening. She carried about 200 books, 
showing the vei-y lovely new editions as 
well as the moderately priced book. In 
addition copies of the '"Bookshelf" were 
distributed to parents and teachers. 

H. O. Parkinson, of Stockton Public 
Library, talked of his many novel ways 
of advertising. Among them were the pay- 
ing of a man ($3.00) to distribute leaflets 
not only to houses but to lodges, lunch 
rooms, etc., placing them in hat bands 
and pockets when possible. How he adver- 



tised by mail, by collecting lists of pros- 
pects from school, chamber of commerce 
lists, etc. ; checking these with the bor- 
rower's file and then sending only to non- 
borrowers. Practically 10 i)er cent re- 
sponded to their mail list. He advocated 
the use of the book plate as a source of 
information instead of for the printing of 
rules. Tliey have a column in the news- 
paper under the caption, "Under the read- 
ing lamp." Telephoning to children proved 
very effective. They did this for t^vo 
hours each Saturday for ten weeks and 
reached 237 children. About 70 per cent 
responded. A home reading scene was 
staged at the county fair. There seems 
to be no end to the novel and original ways 
of advertising that Mr Parkinson has 
devised. In each case he was able to show 
results. 

A few of the librarians who waited for 
a later train were treated to a wonderful 
drive with Miss Doeltz over the residen- 
tial district. The views at many points 
were marvelous and left a very lovely 
impression of the town and its setting.

Hon. Mu.ton J. Fergu.son. 

State Librarian, 

Sacramento, California. 
My Deak Mr Ferguson : 

I have sent out many an inquiry and 
questionnaire, but in all my life I have 
never had such a generous resiwnse as the 
response that has come from the librarians 
from the county libraries of California. 

It is a remarkable illustration of the 
generous largeness of California, which 
means the generous largeness of your 
people. The librarians have not only 
sent printed materials in great abundance, 
but they have taken the pains to write 
letters giving minute details regarding 
their work. 

In my career it is all unexampled. \\"e 
are grateful to you for your good letter 
and for the materials you send. 

We are organizing Study Centers for 
teachers in the counties throughout the 
state. The movement is marvelous. The 
Study Center, of course, is the first step 
toward a covinty library. California's 
example will be of incalculable service. 

We are grateful to you, to your libra- 
rians and to the great people you rep- 
resent. 

Ever with best wishes, 
Sincerely yours,

FORMER TRUSTEES. 

During the past few months two former 
members of the Board of Trustees of the 
State Library have died. Judge W. C. 
Van Fleet, who passed aAvay on Septem- 
ber 3, 192.3, found time iu a very busy 
life to serve the state as trustee from 1900 
to 1912. Mr R. M. Richardson, who died 
on November IS, 1923, became a member 
of the board iu 1910 and continued to 
serve until the board was abolished by 
legislative action in 1921. These two 
men gave unsparingly to the state of the 
high judicial and economic qualities which 
marked their life-work on the bench and 
in the counting-house. Even after they 
had retired as officers of the State Library, 
their interest in its development remained 
unabated, and their counsel might freely be 
had.

Miss Mumm represented the Library at 
tJie meeting of the First District of the 
California Library Association at Oakland 
on November 17. 



Miss Susan T. Smith, librarian of the 
Sacramento' City Library, assisted by girls 
of her staff, of the Sacramento County 
Library staff and by Miss Alice Chenu, 
Miss Angelina Grant and' Miss Alice Miller 
of the State Librai"y, put on a program 
in celebration of Children's Book Week 
before the Sacramento Ad Club on Novem- 
ber 13. The g'irls in appropriate costume 
took part in a "Parade of the best sellers 
of years ago." This was repeated later 
for the Soroptomist Club and on Novem- 
ber 23 it was given for the State Library 
staff meeting. 

The staff had a Christmas party on 
December 19. A vaudeville perfoi*mance, 
with an old-fashioued minstrel parade and 
setting, furnished the entertainment, while 
a beautifully decorated tree and refresh- 
ments appropriate to the season gave the 
Christmas touches. 

It becomes necessary to record that the 
State Library has had the experience of 
having to bring charges of insubordination 
against a member of its staff, before the 
State Civil Service Commission, of going 
through a trial, ami, in the end, of drop- 
ping the defendant from its roster. This 
sort of thing is not common in the library 
profession, because, no doubt, of the high 
ethical standards of library assistants, 
which would ordinarily move them either 
to work in harmony with their chief, or 
else decently to resign. 

When Mrs Suggett was dropped from 
the staff of the State Library June 1, 
1923, Miss Ruth McLaughliu, who for 
several years had been a member of our 
Sutro Brancli staff, was made assistant 
in charge. It became evident, after a 
little while, that she was more responsive 
to the former branch iibrarian than she 
was to the State Librarian. As a matter 
of protection of the interests of both the 
State Librai-y and also of Miss McLaugh- 
lin hei'self — 'though quite obviously she 
did not appreciate the thought given to 
her welfare — she was directed to report, 
on October 1, 1923, for duty in Sacra- 
mento. This order she at first attempted 
to ignore ; she sought to involve her ch'ef 
in a letter writing contest ; and through it 
all persisted in remaining on duty in San 
Francisco. It finally became necessary to 
file charges of insubordination against her 
on two counts : failure to appear in Sac- 



vol. 19,110. 1]

raraenttv, and persistence in appearing in 
San Francisco. 

On Novembur -5 the case came to trial. 
Miss McLanglilJn was represented by an 
attorney. The State Librarian app?ared 
both as appellant and as attorney in his 
case. Mnch testimony that was quite 
irrelevant was introduced by the defense. 
The appellant was content to present 
documentary evidence which conclusively 
proved his contention. 

At the end of the hearing the Civil 
Service Commission direored the parties 
to submit briefs. And after due delibera- 
tion thereon it Avas decided by the Com- 
mission that Miss McLaughlin was guilty 
of insubordination on the two counts 
charged ; and she was dismissed from the 
service. Milton J. Ferguson,

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. 



[Jan., 1924 



As a means of securing the most efficient 
sei'viee we suggest that a prompt notifica- 
tion be sent in of all changes in the address 
of branches. We find that we are some- 
times sending packages to the wrong place, 
because we have not been notified of the 
change of location of the branch. This 
infoi'mation should be given on a "new 
branch" slip. When given on the request 
slip it is liable to be overlooked by the 
shipping department. "New branch" 
slips will be fui'nished on request.

CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT. 

EuDORA Gaboutte, 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 departments of literature. These 
are made accessible by means of a card 
catalog. Full names' and biographical 
sketches of California authors, artists, 
musicians, pioneers and early settlers are 
being secured, together with their photo- 
graphs. The collection of bound peri- 
odicals is quite large. The Department 
also contains about 90OO bound volumes 
of newspapers', 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. 

Royal H. Waller was born in Vermont 
and came to California in 1849, making 
the trip around the Horn. Mr Waller 
settled in San Francisco and in 1854 was 
elected City Recorder, which office at that 
time was the same as police judge. He 
was later School Director, U. S. Land 
Receiver and Pension Agent in the U. S. 
Army with rank of Major. He was an 
active and honored citizen of San Fran- 
cisco up to the time of his death in 1866. 

Joseph Curtis Bufifum arrived in '49, 
making the trip across the plains. Mr 



Buffum's diary of the events of this trip 
and of his early life in San Francisco is 
a most valuable document. After making 
several trips back East he finally returned 
to California in 1897, where he perma- 
nently remained until his death which 
occurred in 1904. 

Henry Hovey Hyde also arrived in 
1849. The cards of those who reached

THE MECHANICS'-MERCANTILE LIBRARY.* 



By Byron Mauzt, President Mechanics' Institute, San Francisco. 



You have asked me to, present a pic- 
turesque history of the Mechanics'-Mer- 
cantile Library. 

It is not difficult to picture in words 
the history of the Mechanics' Institute 
with its various activities from its incep- 
tion to the present day, if one had the 
artistic literary ability to portray it. 
Material is indeed abundant and even our 
English language is full enough to paint 
a picture of glowing colors that would win 
the approval of the most critical among 
you, if one could so blend them together. 
As a business man and not an artist in 
words, I am obliged to present you, in- 
deed, only a very salient picture which I 
have secured through the courtesy of our 
able Secretary and our very efficient 
Librarian. 

lam quite sure that what your program 
committee reallj' expected was an account 
of tlie Mechanics' Institute, and of the 
Mercantile Library Association, eacli of 
which, in the early days of San Francisco, 
established and maintained a separate 
library under its own management, there- 
being no connection whatever between 
them until January, 190'6, when the 
Mercantile Library Association went out 
of existence and, under an agreement with 
its Diembers, its books were taken over by 
the Mechanics' Institute ; the libraries 
were combined and thereafter operated 
undci the name of the Mechanics'-Mer- 
cantile Library until April, 1906, when 
the San Francisco fire wiped both collec- 
tions out of existence. 

Inasmuch as I represent the Mechanics' 
Institute as its president, but more par- 
ticularly because its history is of a dis- 
tinctly different type from that of the 
Mercantile Library Association, I shall 
begin with its organization, progressing 
as far as the amalgamation of the two 
associations. in 1006, when we will go back 
over the years and review the story of 
the Mercantile Library. 

To begin, as its name implies, the 
Mechanics' Institute was established as 
an aid in the advancement of the 
mechanic arts and science ; its organizers 
were mechanics who felt the need of self- 
improvement and who were willing to put 
their shoulders to the wheel to get this 



advancement for themselves and to pro- 
vide it for others. These men met in the 
office of the then tax collector on Decem- 
ber 11, 1854, completed their organization, 
and devised a plan of operation. Several 
subsequent meetings were held at which 
the plan was further worked out ; on 
March 6, 1855, a constitution was pre- 
sented and adopted \^■hich set forth that 
the designs and objects of the association 
were to cultivate a social feeling of friend- 
ship and an educational improvement 
among its members ; the dissemination of 
information and useful knowledge by the 
establishment of a library of circulation 
and reference, a museum and reading 
room, the formation of classes and delivery 
of lectures for tuition, the collection of 
cabinets, scientific apparatus, works of 
art, the purchase of property and the 
erection of buildings for the requirements 
of the Institute, or for any scientific, 
mechanical or literary purpose ; and it 
was further provided that no individual 
right in its property should exist or be 
acquired, and that the property should be 
held in trust for the association and 
never be diverted from the purposes and 
intention for which it was acquired. 

Its library opened on April 5, 1855, 
with the gift of the following four books : 
the "Constitution of the United States," 
an "Encyclopaedia of Architecture," 
"Curtis on Conveyancing," and a copy 
of the Bible. Within a few months a 
room was rented on the fourth floor of 
the Express Building, at California and 
Montgomery streets, where the Kohl 
Building now stands, where, with varying 
ups and downs, it remained until 1858, 
when, with a libary of 900 volumes, it 
moved to larger quarters on Montgomery 
street, between Pine and California. 

During this time its members were not 
unmindful of the objects for which they 
had organized and after much considera- 
tion it was decided that, in addition to its 
other activities, it should further the city's 
interests by the holding of an exhibition 
of the manufactures and industries, not 
only of the city but of the entire state. 

At this time there was no structure of 
sufficient size to house the proposed ex- 
hibit, so, in addition to arranging for the

exhibit itself, it became necessary to 
provide a building therefor. The avail- 
able funds of the Institute Avere limited to 
a few hundred dollars but, due to the 
courage and enterprise of its founders, 
the use of the James Lick lot, on Mont- 
gomery street, was secured without pay- 
ment of rental, and a building covering 
20,000 square feet, and costing some 
$7000, was erected. From this beginning 
grew the annual so-called Mechanics' 
Fair, for which other and larger buildings 
were from time to time erected, and which 
speedily became the leading feature in 
the city's educational and social life. 
These faii-s were discontinued in 1899, it 
having become apparent that they had 
served their pui-pose in bringing to the 
attention of the world the resources and 
manufactures of the state. 

The management of the Institute was 
in the hands of a board of trustees 
elected from its membership, and the suc- 
cess and popularity of the fairs were not 
allowed to interfere with the progress of 
the other work provided for in the con- 
stitution. Additions were constantly 
made to the rapidly growing library, and 
in I860 the Institute purchased its first 
real estate, a lot on California street, 
between Kearny and Montgomery, upon 
which a Jiuildiug Avas erected and into 
which it moved its .5000 volumes. The 
library remained here some three years, 
and in 18GG the Post street lot (the site 
of our present building) was purchased 
and a building erected thereon which Avas 
occupied by the library until destroyed by 
the fire of April, 3906.. 

During all of this time the educational 
aims of the Institute were featured to the 
fullest extent which its funds Avould 
permit. Lectures upon technical, scien- 
tific, and other subjects, by the best men 
in their respective lines, Avere provided, 
and classes in mechanical and free-hand 
drawing, and allied subjects were main- 
tained where the apprentice or mechanic 
could, at a minimum of expense, provide 
himself Avith the knoAvledge necessai'y for 
his Avork. This feature of the Institute's 
activities placed it faA'orably and pi-omi- 
nently hefore the public as an educational 
institution and it Avas, no doubt, respon- 
sible to a great extent for the section in 
the charter of the University of Cali- 
fornia, providing that the President of the 



Mechanics' Institute should be ex officio 
a regent of the State University. 

Perhaps the outstanding feature in the 
Institute's history, in the light of its 
relation to its finances, was the purchase 
in ISSl of the block of land bounded by 
Larkin, Playes, Polk and Grove streets 
for $175,000. For some years previous 
to this time the Institute had been holding 
its industrial exhibitions in its pavilion 
at Eighth and Mission streets (where noAV 
stands the Crystal Market), the land for 
which it had leased at one dollar per year 
and the payment of the taxes thereon. 
The building on this lot was moved to the 
uew site and I'emained there until de- 
stroyed in the conflagration of 1906. In 
1913 this land was sold to the city and 
county of San Francisco for the purpose 
of erecting thereon the present Municipal 
Auditorium, the purchase price being 
$700,000. 

The library in its Post street quarters 
continued to hold its place in the public 
esteem, and in the early part of 1906 it 
had upon its shelves considerably over 
100',000 volumes, comprising a general 
library Avith an exceptionally fine scien- 
tific and technical collection. At this 
time came the consolidation Avith the 
Mercantile Library and the taking over 
of its collection of books Avhich brought 
the number of volumes, in the combined 
libraries, to over 200,000, many of them 
rare, priceless volumes. 

At this point, as I said earlier, let us 
go back over the years and review the 
story of the Mercantile Library. This 
association was organized by the mer- 
chants of San Francisco in December, 
1S52, and after considerable discussion as 
to the need of such an association the 
committee reported a pledged sum of 
$n0O0. With this encouragement it was 
thought advisable to commence operations, 
and on the tAventy-fifth. of January, 1853, 
a meeting Avas called for the election of 
oHiccrs. The Library began with the 
l)ur(l)ase of a private collection of about 
2.""i'nO Ijooks and pamphlets. Rooms were 
secured in the California Exchange Build- 
ing at the northeast corner of Clay and 
Kearn.A' streets, and opened to readers 
early in February, 1853. 

The early history of this library shows 
that while there was a constant growth 
in the number of volumes, there Avas

alwa.As the woriy about finances. In 
1805 the association decided to erect its 
own building and a lot was purchased on 
Bush street, between Montgomery and 
Sansome streets, at a cost of $50,000. A 
loan of $100,000 was then negotiated, the 
lot and proposed building given as security 
therefor, and additional loans to the 
amount of $100,000 were effected. The 
buildiug was completed and dedicated on 
the eighteenth of June, 1868, at which 
time the total indebtedness was $240,000. 
Various means to raise the amount were 
tried but with very little success. To 
quote from an annual report of that 
period : "the prospects were most gloomy ; 
it was impossible to obtain a supply even 
of the cheap current literature ; and the 
mortgagee had commenced a suit of fore- 
closure." Temporary relief was had, 
liowever, from a musical festival which 
])rovided the association with nearly 
$20.(100. 

A bill, which became a law February 
20, 1870, was passed by the legislature 
authorizing the association to hold three 
gift concerts. These were in reality 
lottery drawings, known as the "Mercan- 
tile Library Lottery," which netted a 
profit of $310,120 with which the entire 
indebtedness of the association was paid, 
leaving a balance of $20,(KX>. The con- 
certs were given at the California Theatre 
and the drawings of the lottery were held 
in the Mechanics' Institute pavilion, then 
located on the present Union Square. 

In time its collection of books became 
known as one rich in treasures of art, 
literature, and rare editions, but its 
financial condition did not prosper, and 
seveial attempts were made to consolidate 
the association with the Mechanics' Insti- 
tute but without avail. It was finally 
decided to purchase a lot on the northeast 
corner of Van Ness and Golden Gate 
avenues and to erect a new library build- 
iug thereon ; the cornerstone was laid on 
March 28, ISO'l. The library remained 
in this location until 1901 when it w^as 
moved back to the business center, into 
quarters secTired on Sutter street between 
Kearn.v street and Grant avenue. Its 
consolidation with the Mechanics' Insti- 
tute was effected early in 1908 but its 
usefulness was not fated to last long, for 
on April 18, 1906, the city was destroyed 
by the greatest fire in the world's history 



and' with it the combined library contain- 
ing a ])riceless collection of books. 

The Mechanics' Institute trustees im- 
mediately started the collection of 
another library and by August, 1900, a 
temporary building bad been erected on 
the former JNIechanics' Fa\ilion lot at 
Grove and Polk streets and over 5000 
volumes installed therein. Early in 1909 
a contract was entered into for the erec- 
tion of the present Post street building 
and by July, 1910, the library was back 
to the location it had occupied prior to 
lOOiG since 1866. 

Early in its existence the Institute 
established a chess center at which gath- 
ered all of the more prominent playere 
of the day. Chess is, as you know, more 
than an ordinary game — ^very much in 
the nature of a mathematical calculation 
— and its practice makes for the develop- 
menl of a keen intellect. This feature 
has steadily grown, and today the 
Mechanics' Institute's Chess Club is known 
in every part of the world where chess is 
discussed. Practically all of the world's 
best known players have at one time or 
anotiier made visits to this club and 
pitted their skill against that of players 
whose training was had in our chess 
club. I am proud to say that the science 
of our local players was, in a great many 
instaiices, superior to that of our visitors 
and that the Mechanics' Institute's Chess 
CIu'o liolds many records for skillful and 
daring playing. 

The sale of the pavilion lot to the city 
in 3913 provided the Institute with a 
handsome endowment which has enabled 
the trustees to carry out more fully the 
aim of the founders of the Institute to 
disseminate information and useful knowl- 
edge at the least possible effort to the 
seeker and to advance the Mechanics' 
Institute as an educational center. 

I trust that this paper may prove of 
interest to you and that you will gather 
from it this fact, that the progress of the 
Mechanics' Institute and of the Mercantile 
Libra r.v Association from nothing to 
something important was due to the 
indomitable will and determination of 
those early-day workers and to the con- 
scientious labor of those who followed 
them. Without this spirit there would 
have been no Mechanics'-Mercantile 
Library.

The library of the School for the Blind 
has ceased to be a circulating library and 
is now used only for school purposes. 

AD books in line letter and New York 
point have been discarded in compliance 
with the resolution of the American 
Association of Instructors for the Blind 
for the adoption of a uniform system of 
(Mubossed literature. Books in American 
Braille are retained for the older pupils 
who still read that system. All new 
purchases consist of books in the Revised 
Braille. 

The School will add to its library this 
year some five hundred volumes of new 
material. These are purchased chiefly 
under the National Subsidy fund but a 
fairly large number will be purchased 
under the provisions of the budget 
measure of 192.3. The new accessions are 
confined to school books and books for 
supplementary use in language, literature, 
science and history.

The County Librarians of the Fourth

Coaliuga Library and the heads of depart- 
ments of the Fresno County Fi-ee Library, 
have formed a luncheon chib which meets 
every two months in Fresno, as the most 
central location. The first luncheon was 
held in January. It is proving a very 
pleasant way of getting together and 
talking over the work, each librarian tell-

ing of the new things she is doing and all 
taking part in the discussion of problems. 

We have opened several new branches 
during the quarter. One is at the Cheney 
Pumping Station on the West Side and 
is in charge of Mrs D. C. Keyser in her 
home. We have had a small collection in 
the school near here and this has been 
moved to the regular branch. Another 
interesting branch is in the contagious 
ward at the General Hospital and is in 
charge of the head nurse of the ward. 
We send only discards, which are kept at 
the hospital. The rest of the branches 
are at the Southeru California Edison 
Company's camps and at Power House 
No. 8 of the same compaiay. We have 
visited these branches, with the exception 
of Camp 5 which is at the top of the 
incline and can only be reached by train. 
The branch at Power House No. 8 is 
called Schewanikee and will be a perma- 
nent branch. It is located in the power 
house until the club house is built, the 
club holding themselves responsible for 
the books. 

Miss Kate Foley, State Teacher of the 
Blind, visited Fresno in January and met 
a number of the blind in this vicinity, 
teaching some to read and inspiring others 
to keep up their studies. She spoke to 
sevei-al of the luncheon clubs and the 
Rotary Club joined the California Society 
for the Blind in a body. She also spoke 
at St. Paul's Church and at the State 
College. We had the pleasure of having 
her talk to the staff and meeting her 
afterwards. 

The County Superintendent of Schools 
and his supervisors held sectional insti- 
tute? all during the month of February 
and we had a representative at each to 
tell the teachers about our work with the 
schools. Seventeen sessions were held and 
we feel that much will be gained by this 
personal contact with the teachers. 

I\[is3 Bailey and Miss Yager have started 
their class in School and Library Cooper- 
ation at the State College. This course is 
given to the normal students who wish 
to take it and credits are given them 
for their work. The course includes 
general library administration, selection 
of children's books and County Library 
law with special reference to the service 
to the schools. A good deal of time

is spent in the study of the county 
manual also. We think that this class is 
most important as it gives the new teach- 
ers a right understanding of our work 
with the schools and simplifies our rela- 
tions with them when they go into the 
county schools which belong to the library. 
We find that the teachers who take this 
course have a much more intelligent idea 
of the County Library scheme than those 
who have not. 

Miss McCardle and a number of the 
staff attended the meeting of the Fourth 
District at Merced on the 27th of Feb- 
ruary. The meeting was most interesting 
and a very pleasant and profitable day 
was spent. 

On the 19th of March we held a district 
institute for custodians at Reedley. The 
custodians from Fowler, Selma, Kings- 
burg, Clovis, Sanger, Del Rey, Parlier, 
Xavelencia. Orange Cove and Reedley 
were in attendance. We left Fresno 
with two machines and took along 
a number of assistants from the main 
library to take the places of the custo- 
dians whom we took on to the meeting. 
They took charge of the branches for the 
day and on their return made a written 
report of the conditions which they found, 
thus giving us a better understanding of 
how the work is being carried on. We 
took our luncheons and spent the day in 
the Reedlej' library, which is a model for 
arrangement and neatness. The work of 
a branch library was taken up point by 
point, filing, children's work, work with 
the schools, etc. We expect to hold two 
other institutes in the near future, group- 
ing the branches which are close together.

place in the library. Miss Kavanaugh is 
not a stranger in our midst as she had 
charge of our Holtville Branch just last 
year. She is so interested in library work 
that she quit Normal School to accept the 
position. Her mother, Mrs John Kava- 
naiigh, is one of the rural supervisors 
and a great booster for county libraries. 
Miss Julia Foncanon resigned March 1

Work on the new Court House Building, 
in \\hich the library is to have new quar- 
ters, is progressing rapidly, but it will be 
some time before it will be ready for use. 
However it gives one quite a satisfied

place are going to materialize.

nine hundred books on the first day open. 
The building consists of one room 40 x 60 
feet with two small rooms for office and

seven thousand volumes. There is an 
enclosed patio which will be used as an 
out-of-door reading room. An attractive 
scheme of landscaping is being developed 
and the grounds and patio are to be made 
as beautiful as possible. 

The libi'ary is conducting a series of 
weekly book talks during January and

Miss Sarali M. Jacobus, Lib'n. 

The series of talks about books given in 
tlio fall at the Y. W. C. A. by the libra- 
rian was so well attended that a second 
series was asked for. This is weekly 
through February, March, and April. 
Instead of being given by the librarian 
alone, the senior members of the staff are 
each giving one talk. This alteration has 
proved to be popular with the class. It 
is good policy, too, for it makes very 
evident to the community how capable 
are all their library workers. 

Several rather notable musical events 
have occurred in Pomona this winter. In 
preparation for these the library has 
advertised that anyone might have the 
records of the concert numbers played 
for them at any time. This is to meet the 
necessities of those who can not come to 
a stated phonograph concert. The re- 
sponse to this invitation was quite good. 

At a Board meeting held January 19, 
it was voted that the staff be classified 
into three groups, with graded salaries 
in each group and no advancement from 
group to group except upon further train- 
ing. Miss Beryl Lewis (Riverside 1022) 
was made head of the Circulation Depart- 
ment. The salaries of department heads 
were increased ten and fifteen dollars per 
month, according to the schedule of 
salaries adopted at the same meeting. 
These increases took eft'ect as from Janu- 
ary first. 

The local historical collection has re- 
ceived from Mrs Mel Campbell of Pomona 
a coujplete history of the Pomona Woman's 
duo with a file of its programs and

port their circulation is seriously affected 
because people can not get to the library

more than ever and that the guards on

The library has been the center of a 
number of school activities during the past 
few months. Parent Teacher Association 
parties have been given for the three 
upper classes in High School, and one for 
the Freshmen is to be held shortly. The 
Junior College has also had a party and 
the library was used for the games and 
general entertainment. In February a 
picture framing "bee" was held here and 
the results were extremely gratifying. 

We are glad to be able to report that 
we are now binding many of our maga- 
zines. 

Riverside will have co-education in the 
high schools next year, and as that will 
mean the combining of the two libraries, 
we are hoping for larger quarters in the 
new high school building. The new Junior 
College building provides for a large li- 
brary, but for the present this room will 
be used as an assembly hall. Eventually 
however, this will be the location of the 
combined High School and Junior College 
Library.

January was a busy month for the 
Sacramento County Free Library. On 
.January 35, Mis.s Hazel Burk, a graduate 
of the University of Chicago, and of the 
Los Angeles Library Training School, 
arrived to take charge of the Branch De- 
partment of the Library, but, owing to 
the congested condition of our catalog 
department, has been largely employed in 
that department since coming to us. 

On January 9, a branch was established 
in the Arcade District in the Del Paso 
store, with Mrs Anna Zentgraf in charge. 
The Arcade B^ranch has done a flourishing 
business ever since its establishment. On 
January 18, a branch was established at 
Greenhorn Camp, Shasta County, for the 
use of the prisoners from Folsom State 
Prison, who are working on the highway 
construction in Shasta County. The 
branch is an extension of the Folsom 
State Prison Branch, all books and com- 
munications passing through Represa to 
the branch. The branch was first estab-

lished in the hospital building, but was 
soon moved to a building of its own, 
where a reading room has been estab- 
lished. Thirteen magazines have been sub- 
scribed for, and many of the men have 
private donations of books and maga- 
zines, and the patronage, both of the 
books and of the reading I'oom facilities, 
has been heavy. One of the men acts as 
custodian, freely giving of his spare time 
for the benefit of his fellows. It is the 
one library in our county system which 
has neither "rules nor locks," and from 
which nothing has been lost ! i^''iction 
is at a discount, and the demand is for 
books in every line of general literature, 
with science and history predominating. 

A branch was established at Point 
Pleasant on January 23, in the home of 
Mrs F. G. Sprock, who acts as custodian. 
As this is not a heavily populated com- 
munity, it was not expected that the de- 
mand would be heavy, but the original 
shipment of 50 books proved all too 
small, and four additional shipments 
have been sent. On February 15, a 
branch was established in the County 
Jail, for the use of the prisoners. This 
has not been as largely served as it 
should be, but it is expected that better 
service will be established in the near 
future. 

Tbe Rio Linda Branch, having out- 
grown the quarters which it so long 
occupied in the store of H. Herring, was 
moved on February 29 to the Telephone 
Exchange, where more commodious quar- 
ters were available for it, with Mrs Belle 
Dennis in charge. 

Mrs J. K. Harder, having resigned as 
custodian of the North Sacramento 
Branch, Mrs W. J. Hoskins was appointed 
to succeed her on March 1. 

During the quarter, the County Li-

Since the union of other school districts 
with ChafEey, making the greater Chaffey 
district, a demand has arisen for books 
of quality adapted to younger readers. To 
meet this demand some four hundred 
volumes have been placed in the Chaffey 
Library and are now being used by the 
boys and girls of the outer districts. 
These books are sent out in numbers of 
twenty-five, in special containers designed 
for the purpose. The books are placed 
under the care of the teachers of the 
schools, who are responsible for them. 
They are then issued to the pupils, in a 
manner similar to the way books are 
handled in any library. Each consignment 
of books is returned in four weeks and 
others are then taken our. In this way 
from fifty to one hundred volumes are 
continually in circulation. 

This plan of getting good books into 
the hands of boys and girls who may not 
have the opportunity of coming in touch 
with them has been adopted by the 
Chaffey Library. It is believed in this 
way that the young people of our schools 
will be helped in the acquirement of the 
reading habit and will learn some of the 
essential lessons of life. 

The books designed for this class of 
readers will be covered by the following 
heads : Mechanics for boys, Outdoor 
sports, Hero stories, Stories of industries, 
Stories of other lands, Stories of ad- 
venture. Animal stories, Nature stories, 
Stories of real people. Stories of the sea. 
Games for young people. Poetry for 
young people.

which were quotations while the fourth 
was a graphical representation of certain

for the main entrance of the Public 
Library, which has been awaited since 
the building was erected in 1917, has 
been completed. Last year a friend of 
the library save half the fund necessary 
and the City Council appropriated the 
other half. 

Tli^ overdoor is of wood, carved, gilded 
and painted in color. The design is in a 
restrained Spanish baroque to harmonize 
with the building in general. The theme 
is that of the coat-of-arms of the city of 
Santa Barbara, surrounded by the devices 
of four famous and ancient libraries of 
the old world, and with idealized statues 
of Plato and Aristotle placed at either 
side of the central coat-of-arms as sup- 
porters. At the extreme bottom is a 
sacramental symbol to represent the 
religious purpose which inspired the 
Mission Fathers, flanked by the castles 
of Spain. The cockleshells appearing in 
several places are the symbol of the 
Apostle, Saint James the Great, the 
patron saint of Spain and of the Spanish 
colonies. Plato at the left and Aristotle 
at the right typify philosophy and science 
and represent the source of modern litera-

personally conducted by Miss Huntington, 
who gets homesick for the State Library 
at times, and the party included Miss 
Wheeler, Miss Ward, and Miss Margaret 
Smith of the Santa Clara County Free 
Library, Miss Patterson of the Palo Alto 
Public Library, and Miss King of the San 



SANTA CLARA CO.— Continued. 
Benito County Library. We left San Jose 
at four o'clock Thursday afternoon. While 
we were waiting at Xiles for the Sacra- 
mento train we visited the branch there 
of the Alameda County Library. A 
splendid collection of books and a charm- 
ing custodian who kept the library open 
an extra half hour for the visitors sus- 
tained our pride in the county library 
system. 

Friday morning we spent in the State 
Library, meeting various members of the 
staff, visiting the cataloging, documents, 
newspaper, reference, and circulation 
departments, and discovering Santa C^ara 
Coimty cards in the union catalog. In 
the afternoon we saw the Sacramento 
County, Yolo County, and Woodland 
Public Libraries. Miss Laugenour and 
her staff gave us a very nice tea in the 
Yolo County Library. In the evening 
we called on Mr and Mrs Ferguson in 
their delightful new home. Saturday 
morning, after Miss Susan Smith had 
taken us over the beautiful Sacramento 
City Library, we returned to the State 
Library to "do" the law, blind, shipping, 
and California departments. Each de- 
partment seemed more interesting than 
the last and if it had not been for the 
prospect of luncheon with Miss Gillis we 
should probably still be bombarding the 
staff with questions and receiving very 
wise and helpful answers. 

This account may sound a bit like the 
society notes of the local newspaper, but 
Miss Huntington's tour not only gave a 
great deal of pleasure to its members bat 
quite equaled a whole course at a library 
school in educational value. It gave to 
us new ideas for our own library and 
greater professional interest in library 
work through the contacts with other 
libraries and librarians. It also helped 
us to a more intelligent understanding 
and appreciation of the splendid system 
and wonderful work of the California 
State Library, and of the share of the 
county library in that system and work.

Santa Clara Co. Law Library. Miss 
rx)uise Jennie Spencer, Sec. and Lib'n. 

The San Jose Law Library, established 
in 1874, became the Santa Clara County 
Law Library in January, 1924. The 
original charter was to endure for .50 
years and would expire March 20, 1924. 
Accordingly the supervisors took action to 
establish a library under the state law 
providing for county law libraries. The 
old law ]ibrai"y trustees were appointed 
as the new library board. Mr Owen D. 
Richardson being named president at a 
meeting on February 25. Miss Louise J. 
Spencer was continued as librarian and 
all property was transferred. 

The San Jose Mercury-Herald of Feb- 
ruary 27 gives the above facts as well as 
a complete history of the organization of 
the law library. 

Mount Hamilton (No exp office). 

Lick Observatory Library. W. W. 
Campbell, Director. Dr R. G. Aitken, 
Associate Director, in charge. 

Miss Lona Crane (U. C. 1923) was 
employed as Library Assistant for the 
period July 1, 1923, to March 1, 1924. 
In this interval she brought the card 
catalog of the bound volumes in the 
librai-y (on the Dewey Decimal System) 
up to date, rearranged' the shelving, and 
sorted and rough classified the large col- 
lection of pamphlets. An accurate count 
has not been made recently, but the bound 
volumes number at least 8500, and the 
pamphlets approximately 5000. 

There is no special fund for the sui> 
port of the library ; appropriations from 
the regular budget of the observatory are 
made for it as required.

room has been used as a study room, with 
all the attendant difficulties and incon- 
veniences of administration, so now the 
chance to develop a real high school 
library is very welcome. I have a library 
training class of five who help me in the 
Ubrary, and we have now started our 
revised card catalog, using L. C. cards. 
Up to this time, I have preferred to use 
my time for pei'sonal work with the 
students rather than in tlie more technical 
library practices, and now it is with 
enthusiasm that we are planning our 
work.

$§||Leland Stanford Junior Univer- 
sity Library. Dr Ray Lyman Wilbur, 
Pres. George T. Clark, Director of the 
University Libraries. 

At a recent meeting of the Board of 
Trustees, Mr Clark's title was changed 
from "university librarian" to that of 
"director of the university libraries." The 
change seemed to be desirable for several 
reasons, but ch'efly to indicate better his 
administrative responsibilities for a system 
including not only the university library 
proper, but such distinct units as the Law 
Libraiw, the Lane Medical Library, and 
the Hoover War Library, comprising 
altogether some 400,000 volumes. 

The Hoover War Library now numbers 
over 40.000 volumes. Its policies will be 
determined by a directorate composed of 
Herbert Hoover, its founder, the President 
of Stanford University, the Director of 
the University Libraries, .representatives 
from the departments of History, Eco- 
nomics, Political Science, and Food Re- 
search Institute, with Professor E'. D. 
Adams of tlie department of History as 
chairman. The Hoover War Library has 
its own budget and its own staff, and its 
endowment will permit it to continue the 
acquisition of material relating to the 
world war and reconstruction on a liberal 
scale. George T. Clark, 

Director of the L'niversitr Libraries.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. 



[April, 1924 



siou was called to order by Miss Xorah 
McNeill, librarian of the Richmond Public 
Library and president of the Second 
District. The first speaker was Byron 
Mauzy, i^resident of the Mechanics Insti- 
tute, who gave a history of the Mechanics' 
Mercantile Librai-j'. (»S'ee p. ^5.) 

Mrs Elizabeth Gray Potter, librarian of 
Mills College, who recently returned from 
Frarce, spoke on the American Library in 
Paris. . She gave a very illuminating idea 
of the work as carried on by the staff 
of librarians. 

Harry Xoyes Pratt, editor of the Over- 
land Monthly, reviewed briefly the history 
of the magazine and voiced the hope that 
he might be able to restore its old-time 
literaiy flavor. 

Milton J. Ferguson. State Librarian, 
spoke briefly of the change in the loca- 
tion of the Sutro Branch of the State Li- 
brary from the Lane Medical Library 
Building to its present quarters in the 
San Francisco Public Library, Civic 
Center. 

Miss Mary Barmby, Chairman of Com- 
mittee on Seaman's Library, announced 
that in April a plea, for books for sailors 
would be made and asked the help of all 
librarians pre.sent. 

The question of personal and institu- 
tional membership was discussed by Miss 
Stella Huntington and a member from the 
First District. 

Cliarles S. Greene was elected nomina- 
tor for the First District, with Miss Edith 
Coulter, as alternate. 

Luncheon was served to about one 
hundred and twenty guests. Miss Carol 
Donnan favored the assembly with two 
violin solos and Miss Melva Farwell with 
two flute solos. Miss Farwell explained 
that the music of her second number, a 
phantasy, was obtained from the music 
department of the San Francisco Public 
Library and was the only place from 
which she could obtain it. 

Oharles S. Greene, librarian of the 
Oakland Free Librairy and president of 
the First District presided at the after- 
noon ses'sion. He introduced Mrs Mary 
Roberts Coolidge who spoke on "The 
author and his audience." Mrs Coolidge 
said in part that all the arts had one 
thing in common, that they must have 
an audience. 



A letter of regret that illness would 
prevent his attendance was read from 
Charles G. Yale, librarian of the Bohe- 
mian Club, who was to have talked on 
Bohemian authors. Dane Coolidge very 
kindly took his place on the program and 
talked on Western authors and writers 
of western stories. 

Charles Caldwell Dobie, author and 
short story writer, related humorously 
his early experiences as a writer ; he 
closed his remarks by saying that he had 
talked uix)n all subjects except that 
assigTied him, his novel, "The blood red 
dawn." 

Frederick O'Brien told how he wrote 
his "\STiite shadows in the South Seas" 
and recounted many humorous incidents 
connected with his sojourn there. 

Present day poets and poetry was the 
theme of Mrs Edwin Markham of New 
York. Mrs Markham has been the presi- 
dent of the Poetry Society of New York 
for many years and was able to give 
freely of her wide experience. 

Miss Edith Hibberd of the Oakland 
Public Library sang two groups of songs 
in her very delightful way. The musical 
program for the day was arranged by Miss 
Fredericks, head of the music department 
of the San Francisco Public Librai"j'. 
The meeting was well attended, both dis- 
tricts being represented. 

AxicE G. Whitbeck, Secretary. 

Third District Meeting. 

The annual meeting of the Third Dis- 
trict of the California Library Association 
was held on Saturday, March 8, 1924. 
at the Vallejo Public Librai"y. Miss 
Estella De Ford, president of the district, 
presided, and in the absence of Miss Clara 
B. Dills, Miss Marjorie Chilberg acted as 
secretary. 

A word of welcome was given by S. A. 
Copper, president of the Board of Trustees 
of Yallejo Public Librarj'. and also by A. 
H. Draughon, Mayor of the City of 
Yallejo. 

A short business meeting was held at 
which Miss Leta Hutchinson was elected 
nominator for the district, with Miss 
Clara B. Dills as alternate. Following, 
an informal discussion of library prob- 
lems was held, and each member present 
was asked to name the most interesting

book lie had read recently aud tell in a 
few words something about the book. 
The meeting then adjourned till after- 
noon. 

Those present were taken to ^Nlare 
Island where, through the courtesy of the 
Commandant, they were guests of the 
Vallejo Public Library at a luncheon 
served in the yard cafeteria. 

Lunch over, the party was escorted 
about the island by Chaplain Hayes. This 
proved most interesting inasmuch as 
very few had visited the island before. 
The Rodman Naval Club Library and 
U. S. Hospital Library and recreation 
rooms were of special interest. The party 
then returned to Vallejo where the meet- 
ing was continued. 

Mrs Zoe D. Moore of the Seven Ai'iS 
Reading Room in the Palace of Fine 
Arts in Sian Francisco talked briefly 
regarding the work of the organization 
and extended a welcome to the use of the 
valuable material housed there. 

A most delightful talk was then given 
by Mrs Elizabeth Gray Potter, of Mills 
College, on the work in the American Li- 
brary in Paris. The library was estab- 
lished by the American Librai-j- Associa- 
tion during the war for the use of the 
men in service. With the end of the war 
it was to have been discontinued, but so 
many requests were made to keep it open 
that various means are now being taken 
to make it a war memorial. All nationali- 
ties and classes of people are using the 
library and it is felt that America and 
American literature will be better under- 
stood as the library continues. 

Christopher Nixon of Stag's Leap. Napa 
County, then spoke on "Tbe library from 
the borrower's view-point." A graduate 
of Oxford, ^Ir Nixon has had access to 
the British Museum, the B'odleian Li- 
brary and other large libraries of Europe. 
He said, however, that nowhere was he 
able to get better service than in the 
State of California. 

An interesting day was concluded by 
Miss Hastings of Sather Gate Book Shop. 
She told of her work with children, and in 
her charming manner told one of the old 
Persian hero tales, "The Birth of Rustam." 

The meeting was the largest ever held 
in this district, 52 being present, and 
much credit for the success of the meet- 
ing should go to the Vallejo library and 



its trustees for their cooperation aud 
hospitality. Marjopje Ciiilberg, 

Acting Secretary. 

Fourth District Meeting. 

On Wednesday, February 27, 1924, the 
annual meeting of the Fourth District of 
the California Library Association con- 
vened in Merced with eighty-five li- 
brarians from the ten San Joaquin Valley 
counties comprising the district in attend- 
ance. 

The morning session, which was held at 
the County Library, opened at 10.30 with 
the greetings to the visiting librarians, 
followed by a brief business session at 
which the nominator and alternate were 
elected, to serve at the annual election 
of officers of the association. Miss Essae 
M. Culver and Miss Gretcheu Flower 
were unanimously elected. 

The first speaker on the program was 
Miss Julia Steffa, Librarian of Kings 
County Free Library, who described 
some of the literary shrines visited on a 
recent trip through Eui'ope. Beginning 
with the librai*y carried on shipboard she 
'od us on to the Americau Library in 
Paris : the Vatican ; the burial place of 
Michael Angelo and the monument of 
Dante in Florence ; the British Museum ; 
Uni\"ersity of Oxford : Shakespeare's birth- 
place : to Scotland and the home of Burus, 
then hack through ^lontreal to the United 
States and home. All of her beai'ei-s 
cherish a hope of visiting the shrines of 
which so attractive a glimpse was given. 

Miss Ida Huntington, of the Stanislaus 
County Library staff, gave an allegorical 
presentation of "The sad and merry tale 
of a county library assistant." In a 
humorous and whimsical way she pre- 
sented for consideration many ideas and 
ideals of library service, and her paper 
was original and greatly appreciated. 

A round table discussion on library 
problems under the direction of Miss 
Mary Harris, of Fresno County, was next 
carried on. ]Mi.>--s Pauline Yager, of 
Fresno County, spoke on children's li- 
braries, and contrasted the advantage of 
a small library with a larger one. Miss 
Martha Johnson, of the Taft Library, 
spoke on "How to interest the public in 
ucufiction books" and ^Irs Lucile Isak- 
.son of Madera led a discussion on special 
requests.

Board of Trade rooms in the Yolo County 
Courthouse. 

The meeting was called to order at

wex'e read, after which the nominators

of the Sacramento Countj^ Free Library, 
altornate. 

Miss Marjorie Richards of the Sacra- 
mento City Library gave an intei'esting 
talk on "The attitude of the library 
worker toward his work." Miss Pearl 
Blurdell of the San .Toaquin County Free 
Library told of the "Information contest" 
which the library held. Four hundred and 
eighty questions were received during two 
weeks, one hundred and fifteen of this 
number required some research, two could 
not be answered and two were doubtful. 
A few minutes were given to informal 
diiscussion on questions of general interest 
to librarians, after which the meeting

Lily M. Tii.den, Secretary. 

Sixth District Meeting. 

The Sixth District of the California 
Library Association met at Alhamhra on 
January 26, 1924. There were about 300 
prestnt. that being 100 more than last 
year. The morning session was opened 
by an invocation by Rev. S. J. Kennedy, 
a member of the Alhambra Library Board. 
.T. L. Davidson gave the address of wel- 
come. He said, "In books lies the soul 
of all past time. If libraries could settle 
some of the unsettled problems of today 
through these books, it would be a fine 
thing." 

Tlie secretary read the part of the con- 
stitution applying to the election of a 
memlier of the nominating committee. 
Mrs Brewitt nominated Miss Artena M. 
Chapin, who was unanimoxisly elected. 
Miss Faith Smith was elected as alter- 
nate. Communications Avere read from

the California Library Association, from 
Miss Zaidee Brown with reference to her 
"Lantern Lists," and greetings from 
Charles S. Greene, president of the First 
District. 

Miss Jeannette M. Drake, president of 
the California Library Association, gave 
the plans for the annual meeting in April. 

Miss Marion J. Ewing, assistant libra- 
rian, Pomona College Library, gave a 
very illuminating talk on libraries and 
other things in China. She said in part : 
"Although China is a very dirty place, the 
tourists look in vain on the streets for 
scraps of paper bearing Chinese charac- 
ters. T'here is great reverence for printed 
words even among illiterates, and papers 
are taken to nearby shrines to be rever- 
ently burned. The story of libraries 
begins with Confucius, who lived about 
250 years before the Alexandrian Library 
was built. For two hundred years after 
Confucius, literature flourished. Then 
Prince Chen wished to abolish feudalism, 
and in order to do this he commanded 
that all books be destroyed, and that the

scliohirs be boheadod ; but some of the 
sciiolars mauasod to conceal a large 
quautity of Ooufiician literature in a Avell, 
so that this was savetl. Literature flour- 
isheil aaain iu the Ilan dynasty about 
200 years A. D. when the emperor ordered 
the Chinese classics to be engraved on 
stone tablets, or pillars, so that they 
never could be destroyed. Real libraries 
were established. About 1773 Emperor 
Chun Ijiing decided that literature was 
not appreciated. He ordered that his 
subjects should turn in all manuscripts 
of any value. He appointed a director 
who read thousands of these and from 
them chose 3.500 works. One thousand 
five hundred clerks were employed for ten 
year.j to make seven copies of each of 
these. Only three of these are left, and 
the Chinese are very eager to have them 
copied, but it would cost $10,000 for 100 
copies. No Chinese publishing house is 
willing to undertake this. One collection 
occupies one-fifth of a mile, and is classi- 
fied by a scheme made 60O years before. 
The same classification is used in libraries 
now. but the Chinese are not satisfied Avith 
the scheme. At the present time libraries 
may be divided into tliree cla.'^ses : Old 
libraries ; libraries connected with foreign 
inissions ; and government and municipal 
librai-ies influenced by foreigners. 

Among the old libraries are 30 Buddhist 
libraries, exact duplicates of one another. 
Priests are allowed to take one book at a 
time from rheso collections. Once a year 
the public may look at these books under 
the supervision of the priests. The books 
are in old Chinese characters seldom used 
now. There is a public library in Nan- 
king in an old building, with glass cases, 
used only by scholars. One must give 
notice a day in advance when one wishes 
to use certain books. Scholars have their 
own private libraries of Chinese classics 
of great age. An outgrowth of the libra- 
ries of the missions was a library school 
started by Miss Elizabeth Wood at Han- 
kow, which is the Chi(;ago of China. Miss 
Wood's graduates lect'ire on library work. 
She is trying to have some of the in- 
demnity money spent on a natioml 
libra; y. A governmenv: library is situated 
at Nanking where Mr Hung is librarian. 
He is a graduate of the New York State 
Library School and his library is like an 
American library. An imposing new 



library building is in course of erection. 
A very impressive library building may 
be seen at Soochow where a charming 
lilirarian shows one through the different 
rooms, but not a book is to be seen. 
China is in the imitative stage of library 
work and educational work. They will 
accept the best and eliminate the worth- 
less, and will surely create something that 
will be a real contribution to the world of 
letters." 

J. E. C4oodwin, librarian of the Southern 
Branch of the University of Califom'a, 
spoke on some of the problems in his 
library. He said : "I left my membership 
in the California Library Association in 
1912 and went to Texas. I returned to 
library work in California this year. 
When asked to speak at this meeting I 
\-isualized an informal gathering of one- 
third the number here. In Texas a meet- 
ing of the whole state is attended by about 
seventy-five. Because I have come from 
there so recently, I bring you greetings 
from that small association. I deeply 
appreciate the very cordial welcome re- 
ceiA'ed from Miss Fargo and other members 
of the staff of the University Library. 
Our problems are paralleled in any sizable 
college or university in the country, and 
they are the same as those in the in- 
structional departments. Our physical 
plant is inadequate and not susceptible to 
extension. The university has announced 
that instruction shall be maintained on 
the same high standard as at Berkeley, 
therefore the library must be first class. 
The Southern Branch is borrowing very 
generously from Berkeley, far more than 
we could from any other librarJ^ In 
making purchases we must consider what 
shall be excluded. In accepting gifts we 
must determine whether the same stand- 
ards shall be applied as we apply to pur- 
chases. The responsibility of selection 
lies in large measure with college faculties. 
The library buys largely for non-labora- 
toi-y departments, but producing scientific 
men are those who insist upon first class 
laboratory equipment and first class maga- 
zines and books." 

Miss Helen T. Kennedy, assistant libra- 
rian of the Los Angeles Public Library, 
conducted a very lively symposium on the 
modern novel. 

The afternoon program consisted of 
music by local artists, stories told by

Seventh District Meeting. 

The Seventh District of the California 
Library Association held its annual meet- 
in°- Saturday, April 12, 1924, at the 
Humboldt County Free Library, Eureka. 
The meeting was preceded by an informal 
luncheon. 

Those in attendance were : Mrs Florence 
MeClaske.v. president ; Miss Ida M. 
Reasan, Miss Mona Kinney, Miss Edna 
Davis, Miss Georgia Davis. Humboldt 
County Free Library ; H. A. Kendall, 
Mrs' Helen Bartlett, Eureka City Library ;

and Miss Ruth Larimer, Humboldt State 
Teachers College, Areata. 

iliss Ida M. Reagan was elected nomi- 
nator and H. A. Kendall, alternate, to 
attend the annual meeting at Pasadena. 

After the business session there fol- 
lowed a rouuid table discussion of the 
program of the annual meeting of the 
association which had arrived that morn- 
ing. The members present were inter- 
ested in the program numbers and ex- 
pressed themselves as wishing it were 
possible for them to attend. 

Georgia A. Davis, Secretary. 

Ninth District Meeting, 

The members of the Ninth District of 
the California Library Association attend- 
ing the meeting, which was held in Yreka 
February 1 and 2, 1924, arrived! there 
late Friday afternoon, and were met at 
the train by Miss Thelma Braekett, presi- 
dent of the district, who had made 
arraagements for the entertainment of 
the members in private homes. Later all 
gathered and again were grateful to Miss 
Braekett for her thoughtfulness when as 
her guests they partook of a turkey 
dinner. 

At S p.m. the meeting was formally 
called to order in the public librai"y. Miss 



Braekett presiding. After a cordial wel- 
come to the members and friends, the 
president introduced Milton J. FergTison, 
State Librarian, who made a few general 
remarks, and then delighted his listeners 
by reading a clever satire on Geoi'ge 
Washington, Mary Queen of Scots, and 
U. S. Grant, from Tom Masson's Annual 
for 1923'. 

"The door in the wall" was the subject 
chosen by a "far-away" borrower, Mrs 
Clarence Soule, for her inspiring talk. 
The "door" proved to be the county 
library and the books that had been made 
available to her and her family through 
the agency of that institution. She de- 
scribed in a delightful manner the syste- 
matic way she had read and studied for 
years. 

At 10 a.m. February 2, the second ses- 
sion was called to order. J. W. Millei-, 
Superintendent of Schools, who had lived 
and taught in Siskiyou before the era of 
the county library, spoke most apprecia- 
tively of what had been accomplished 
througih the library service to schools. 

Mrs Lila G. Adams was the speaker on 
children's books. Her experiment of per- 
sonally sending postals to all the school 
children in Trinity County during Chil- 
dren's Book Week and asking them to 
write descriptions of their favorite books 
was most interesting and the audience 
was certainly entertained by the reading 
of a few of the cards she received in reply. 

In the absence of Miss Edna Hewitt, 
Librarian of Sutter County, who was to 
have led the round table. Miss BlancOie 
Chalfant opened the discussion. Problems 
that are always present in every library 
were discussed to the advantage of all 
present. 

Mrs Lila Adams was elected nominator 
for the district, with Miss Chalfant as 
alternate. 

Several custodians of Siskiyou County 
were in attendance, also a number of 
local people. Yreka being rather far from 
the center of population, made it difficult 
for some members to attend. The meet- 
ing, however, made up in enthusiasm wliat 
it lacked in attendance.

Fordyce .1. Benjamin in 1850. 

William Oscar Carpenter arrived in 
1850. His experiences in tlie mines and 
in business in Sacramento were both 
exciting and imique. His letters home 
were unusually illuminating as to the 
life of the times. Extracts from these 
letters have recently been published under 
the title, "A California Pioneer of the 
Fifties." Mr Carpenter returned to his 
home in Michigan where he spent the 
remainder of his life. In the '80's he 
revisited the scenes of his California 
experiences and expressed regret that he

SARATOGA SPRINGS AGAIN. 



By Milton J. Ferguson, Librarian, California State Library. 



Do .voii remember ]!I18 at Saratoga 
Springs? War. World swayiug projects. 
Growing onthusinsm for tlie tasks be- 
queathed by Louisyille in 1917. Uni- 
formed librarians \ylio someho\y had 
acquired, ahuost, a martial stride. The 
book, a fulcrum on which to elevate a 
nation to a higher plane of virtue and 
wisdom, (xreed began the great conflict ; 
knowledge, the printed word should end it. 

The records of the A. L. A. set out 
that (>20 persons attended that 191S con- 
ference. But in that year there was a 
largeness, of ideas, of ideals, if not of 
numbers, which filled the old political 
convention hall, and made a grand com- 
Ijany of those who thrice daily passed 
beneath the crystal chandeliers and on 
irito that oc-ean of a dining room. Some- 
tliing was at stake. Tomorrow might see 
a great victory — for none could contem- 
plate defeat — 'and each must he ready to 
d() or die. 

Is it, I wonder, that quality, or trait, 
or knack of the imagination which subtle- 
transforms the yesterdays into perfect 
(lays, or was it fact which makes me be- 
lieve today that in li'n.S librarians regis- 
terefl at Saratoga Springs went to meet- 
ings with puritanical regularity and 
Ijunctuality? I can not recall whether at 
that war conference golf had not yet 
broken out in the ranks, or whether the 
task in hand was so all absorbing that 
sticks had been forgotten in the cloak 
closet back home. Certainly I have no recol- 
liction of hearing anyone boast that he 
had a perfect score in session attendance : 
ever.v meeting avoided. 

B.v 1!>24, war, in libi-arv circles, had 
l)ecome a memory. Enthusiasms were in 
leash. Attendance had doubled over six 
years earlier but the convention hall had 
become a reechoing barn, which towards 
the end of the conference President Jen- 
nings showed good judgment in abandon- 
ing. Uniforms had taken refuge among 
the moth balls. Golf had become a pas- 
sion. Section meetings were more 
numerous than ever, and perhaps more 
scantily attended. Bookmen, book- 
binders, caterers to library needs were in 
force, and really had much of excellent 
\ alue to show, if one had time and energj- 
to see. Five o'clock tea was substituted 
for war-like feiTor. And the book itself 
had taken the military feather out of its 
cap, and become a genial old friend, 
(h»l)endable, safe and sane, but incapable 
of leading the charge in the face of big 
l)erthas and mustard gas, 

Saratoga Springs is a nice old town, 
set down in the fold of gentle rolling 
hills, made green with tine trees. Some 

33352 



of its residences reflect the glory of an 
amititious past. Without any wish to be 
unfair, one might deduce that it rather 
slumbered during a greater part of the 
year, and awoke on our national birthday 
to gather in the fruits of July and August. 
Then the summer visitor comes, bringing 
with him the babel of tongues spoken on 
the sidewalks of New York and in its 
foreign quarters but strangely old world 
sounding to western ears. The race tra<k 
becomes alive again. Crowds throng and 
hope, and hope again : ponies are variable 
stars. The springs still bubble; and 
visitors quaff the waters from open faucet 
or from prettily labeled bottle, according 
to their economic philosophy : now, in 
solemn belief that it will reduce an out of 
bounds girth line, or take the limp out of 
;i rlieitmatic foot : then, as a stunt on a 
summer picnic, just to feel the rising 
carbonated bubbles tickle the nose. 

The old (irand Union Hotel is worth 
one visit to the little cit.v, where I suppose 
a certain potato dish got its name, and 
where histor.v tells ns Benedict Arnold 
showed himself a dashing hero ; I should 
not care to argue the affirmative for a 
second visit. It seems to date Itack a 
century or longer to Israel Putnam whose 
v.olf-capturing episode pictured on an old 
swinging sign board told the traveler 
where to alight. This board is still to be 
found on the back veranda of the old 
hostelry : one can puzzle over the serious- 
ness of that adventure in which, if the 
iirtist be not at fault, the General all but 
lost his pants but not through the 
ferocity of the wolf. Those endless 
\erandas speak of a day before the auto- 
mobile came, of a day when the rocking 
chair had not escaped from domesticity. 
The high ceilings and spacious bedrooms 
'■emind us that once building was cheaj) : 
but the absence of private baths makes us 
know that there was a time when the 
Saturday ])ath was an institution and not 
a vaudeville joke. And were it not for 
the fact that it became a sort of prison in 
which one served an indeterminate sen- 
tence thrice daily, the dining room would 
have been an interesting place : if for no 
other reason that that it harbored a larger 
numlier of negro captains, waiters, and 
Inis boys of greater diversity of color, 
iige, figure and gait than can probably be 
found, in a single body, elsewhere in con- 
tinental America. I can shut m.v eyes 
now and see that endless room fading 
away towards a far distant kitchen, 
whence it were sometimes doubtful 
whether a colored man would ever return. 
Reason alone argued that he would, in 
hope, no houbt, that the diner like a 
certain traveler of old might have buried

NEWS NOTES OP CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. 



[July, 1924 



a talent, more or less, beneath his napkin. 
But if food came slowly, talk \yas abun- 
dant : bass and treble, laughter, solemn 
declaration, chatter, shop talk and talk, so 
intermingled, such a hash of sound that 
one coming into the room unaware could 
not have told race, business, or belief of 
the assembled diners. 

That old convention hall, I wonder 
w'hat stories it could tell. It must have 
peen men and sights to furnish material 
for a dozen political novels. With up state 
and down crowded into its five thousand 
seats, it was probably a satisfactory place 
to speak in ; but with a thousand librar- 
ians sprinkled over its ground floor it was 
anything but inspirational to the speaker. 
Somehow his Avords seemed inclined to 
come tumbling back at him. The first 
part of a sentence hopefully launched 
reached the further walls and rolled back 
in a fairly successful attempt to choke 
.the period down the orator's throat. 
There was something pathetic in our effort 
to use that giant's reading stand. One 
questioned whether Tammany tigers were 
tall enough to read from it in comfort, or 
wbether their stuff was all extempo- 
raneous. The paper covering which once 
concealed roof beams had yawning holes, 
here and there ; and these ragged 
streamers murmured of ghosts of bygone 
days, and men, and customs. It was 
like, to speak in modern terms, a bottle 
of ginger ale the next morning, tepid, the 
fizz all gone. 

As a sort of echo of the year's activi- 
ties of the Temporary Library Training 
Board, the first general session was de- 
voted to the subject of education for li- 
Inarianship. W^hile the speakers differed 
in the handling of their topics, there was 
unanimity in the conviction that training 
is essential. One could not tell, however, 
Avhether that session's doings would be 
the powder train leading to the dynamite 
of the evening's council meeting which 
should blow the works to that same far 
region, the graveyard of the enlarged 
program. At New York in April some of 
the library school people were in bullish 
mood : they wanted to toss the Avhole 
business. But when the council gathered, 
the rules of the game Avere stated — who 
could A'ote and avIio niitst simply listen — • 
Avhen the report of the temporary board 
Avas read, and its recommendations, not 
a voice was raised in opposition. Some, 
seemingly, were armed with formidable 
antagonistic documents ; and word had 
gone the rounds that the fight would be to 
the finish. But quietly, soberly, motion 
Avas made accepting the recommenda- 
tions and thanking the committee for its 
excellent Avork. When the vote was taken 



the uo&s Avere unanimously absent, or 
speechless. Thus did the A. L. A. in its 
somewhat ponderous fashion take another 
definite step towards the library of 
tomorrow. 

Henceforth training for librarianship 
becomes the business of associated li- 
brarians. It is easily to be seen that the 
success of the profession, in its primary 
intent to give book service to a nation, 
will be gaged very largely by the results 
of tliis combined effort to secure a better 
trained personnel. What may become of 
the Association of Library Schools, which, 
Avhile no doubt it has accomplished much, 
has seemingly been deeply interested in 
building a high barricade about its own 
corporate body, rQmains yet to be deter- 
mined. Business men, note the action of 
the Carnegie Corporation on this subject, 
agree that in any field the first considera- 
tion must be given to the man on the job. 
Good as has been the product of the li- 
brary schools of the past, it must be made 
better. We may now reasonably hope 
that the makeshifts and scrimpings of the 
schools may be replaced by modern 
machinery. Poverty is after all not one 
of the cai'dinal virtues. 

President Jennings deserves high praise 
for his restraint in framing general ses- 
sions. He kept them down to four ; and 
even then one Avas a joint affair with the 
College and Reference Section, and the 
Special Libraries Association. Further- 
more, this executive whom Ave of the west 
claim as our own had a presidential mes- 
sage of excellent merit. In a spirit of 
kindly humor, he pointed out some of the 
pitfalls Avhich yawn before the library 
world so eager to undertake community 
tasks of all kinds Avhether by any stretch 
of authority they rightfully come within 
the library field. Flaws are easily noted : 
the other fellow's mote becomes a granite 
Ijoulder. But Mr. Jennings went further : 
in logical, understandable manner, he set 
doAvn some of the things which libraries 
should undertake Avith renewed vigor and 
enthusiasm. Adult education took such 
Ijrominence that it may be designated as 
the keynote of the convention — that, with 
training for librarianship as a harmonious 
minor. No doubt this fine presidential 
message Avill soon find Avide circulation in 
one of the library publications ; as I hope, 
too. may the able confirming words of Dr. 
Alexander Meiklejohn who so splendidly 
rounded out the program on the evening 
of July 4. 

But if general sessions were fewer, the 
average Avas kept up by the multiplicity 
of meetings of round tables, sections and 
allied organizations. What i*ecourse is 
there for a poor librarian with but a

sins:li' sot of brains when he sees such 
teiuptius food simultaueoiisly disphiyed 
ou tables so far apart? If he goes one 
phice he may not be in another ; and as 
yet it is scarcely the custom to drop in, 
say, at the Children's Librarian's Section 
for a mental cocktail, pass on to Catalog 
Section for an inspiring entree, hurry for- 
ward for the roast l>eef served by the Law 
Librarian, and settle cosily down for 
dessert and demi-tasse with the vSpecial 
Librarians. We may come to such a pass. 
On no half day, excepting, of course, 
when general sessions wei'e held, were 
there fewer than seven meetings in prog- 
ress ; the maximum was ten. We were 
put to it in our childhood to get our 
money's worth at a three ring circus : at 
the A. L. A. we cash in on that early 
training. 

Personally, I took pleasure in finding 
f ut what people are reading in Boston : 
find count the effort on that evening worth 
while in that it gave me opportunity- to 
know Frank Chase, a sort of fellow con- 
sj^irator, who made out a good case for 
iIk^sh people of the great cod fish center. 
Hooks speak a language intelligible to 
nil sections of our great commonwealth. 
And if we have acquired the monotony of 
uniformity in dress, habits and thought, 
we at the same time profit by the strength 
inherent in national homogeneity. 

But I would be insincere if I did not 
confess particular satisfaction in the meet- 
ing of the League of Library Commissions. 
Tlie program was brief and pointed. It 
had certain Gallic qualities : it was 
divided into three parts. There was pro- 
pounded the query what is the respon- 
sibility of the League for the machinery 
of our library system, its personnel, and 
its return to the stockholders in the cor- 
poration, the people. The new state li- 
brarian of Pennsylvania, Miss Anna A. 
ISIacDonald, responded to part one, 
Charles E. Ru.sh of Indianapolis took 
the second, and Sydney B. Mitchell of 
the L^niversity of California concluded. 
When these three excellent papers appear 
in print I earnestly recommend that they 
be given the study and attention to which 
they are entitled. 

The A. L. A. is busily engaged planning 
for its fiftieth birthday in 1020. It is 
thinkin? of a permanent home which shall 
become an informational and inspirational 
library center for America. It is looking 
forward and working toward a member- 
ship of 10,000 persons. It is planning 
surveys, catalogs and exhibits, all of which 
may reasonably l>e considered a part of 
the semi-centennial festival. Every item 
in this program will repay the profession 
for the pains and labor necessary in its 



accomplishment. But in this well doing 
let us not forget that complete success 
will only come to the library forces when 
every American is potentially served with 
information and books. Not every citizen 
ol this nation will care to become a book 
worm for profit or for pleasure ; but the 
system must nevertheless be completed. 
As the count stands today half of our 
population has no book service ; and it is 
probably the part which stands in great- 
est need. ^len, women, and children in 
scattered rural sections, out on the great 
plains of the west, in the hills of the 
southern states, in forest and back 
country, in hamlet and small town, those 
who lack the inspirational influences of 
bigness in the cities, and have lost touch 
with the fresh charm of a new land : to 
these millions of our population the li- 
brary must minister. Can not the A. L. 
A. evolve a plan by which such sections 
of our country may be enabled to help 
themselves? It will require money, per- 
haps in no small sums, it will take hard 
work on the part of fai"-seeing executives, 
it may involve extensive demonstrations 
of a nature so removed from the habits of 
the past as to appear revolutionary : but 
the task must be grappled with. The A. 
L. A. alone is in position to act : singly or 
in smaller groups fair results ma.v not be 
readily won. In certain favored states the 
library and the child are arriving at an 
understandable basis : adult education will 
develop and flower with increasing vigor. 
What we need now is to make the move- 
ment more or less uniformly national. 

This year entertainment was not 
stressed : some comparatively few stole 
away now and then for a round of golf : 
the children's librarians served a cup of 
tea as a sort of stimulant to renewed talk 
on library i>roblems : and after tea for an 
hour or two a group tried the charms of a 
syncopated orchestra for that stiffness 
contracted from long sitting on wooden 
chairs. Yaddo opened its hospitable doors, 
and the members in utmost freedom en- 
joyed its art treasures, its books, its wide 
flung lawns and magnificent views ; 
though they were probably saddened at 
the stor.y of the burden of calamity 
heaped upon its builder, the Trask family. 
Lake George called the early risers for a 
pleasant motor trip over rolling hills. The 
view from Mount MacGregor. where 
President Grant passed his last days, 
repaid the spin to its crest. But other- 
wise it was a business meeting, working 
smoothly because of the growing efficiency 
and wisdom of the headquarters .staff, a 
business meeting of quality, with lots of 
unprosrammed talk mornin?, noon and 
night.

[July, 1924 



THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE CALIFORNIA LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 
AND OF THE CALIFORNIA COUNTY LIBRARIANS. 

By Stella Huntington, Librarian, Santa Clara County Free Library. 



The twenty-ninth annual meeting of the 
California Library Association was held 
at the Hotel Huntington, Pasadena, April 
28-30, 1D24. The California County Li- 
brarian.s' joined their fifteenth annual con- 
vention with the C. L. A., but had a 
special county program on May 1st. 

The sessions opened at 10.00 a.m. on 
Monday in the lovely ballroom of the 
hotel. Miss Jeanette M. Drake, president, 
presided. As the maj^or was out of town, 
Mr J. W. Wood, chairman of the advisory 
library board, welcomed the visitors to 
I'asadena. There wa.s a short business 
meeting. The members present voted to 
have a "Convention registration fee"' of 
.$1.00 for each annual meeting, to be paid 
by each meml>er in attendance so that the 
increased expense of the meetings may be 
])aid by the members that attend the 
meetings and get the benefit and pleasure 
from them. Miss Ethel Richardson, assist- 
ant state superintendent of public instruc- 
tion of California, gave a most interesting 
talk on "Adult education : the significant 
factor in American life." Dr. Archibald 
Ronton, Dean of College of Arts and 
I'ure Science, New York L'niversity, gave 
a scholarly and interesting paper on 
"The function of literature." 

On Monday afternoon Miss Junia M. 
"Wolff, music supervisor of the Pasadena 
Public Schools, led the librarians in a 
community sing. The favorite song seemed 
to be "Marcheta." This was followed by 
an address, "River of life," by Miss Madge 
.Tension, of "Sunwise turn" fame. After 
this general session the "Municipal libra- 
ries'" section met, presided over by Miss 
Ethel Carroll, president for the past year 
of the section and librarian of the Oxnard 
Public Librai"j'. Rook mutilation was dis- 
cussed by Harvej- J. Addams, special 
investigator of the Los Angeles Public 
Library. Decreasing the temptation for 
l)ook thefts and mutilation was the i-emedy 
offered for this perplexing problem by Mr 
Addams. He asserted that persons often 
take books on very slight pretext and 
might not do so if the opportunity did not 
present itself. As concrete remedies for 
this problem he recommended closer super- 
vision of stacks and reading rooms ; verifi- 



cation of applicants for cards ; the inter- 
ception of fraudulent cardholders ; closer 
scrutiny of satchels, hand bags, etc. He 
gave several examples of curious places in 
which missing books were found. One 
book, reported lost for seven months, was 
found doing duty for a missing caster 
under the leg of an office desk. Mr Greene 
of the Oakland Library thought that the 
association should protest to the school 
authorities against the making of scrap 
books for the schools. He said that chil- 
dren have been known to cut pictures out 
rf valuable books, encyclopedias and maga- 
zines for this purpose and that the prac- 
tice tended to make vandals of the chil- 
dren. Miss Althea AVarren of the San 
Diego Public Library gave an interesting 
talk on entertainment material. Patrons 
crowd to the library to know how to cele- 
brate some holiday fittingly and the libra- 
rian is often puzzled to make her material 
go around. Miss Warren gave sources for 
l)lays. games, recitations, etc. "In this 
branch of library work," she said, "it is 
sometimes necessary to lower our stand- 
ards somewhat, for when a patron wants 
'The face on the bar-room floor,' that's 
\\hat he wants, not some classical poem." 
]\Iiss Eleanor Hague, an authority on folk- 
lore, presenied valuable material on folk 
songs, and Miss Maryette O. Mackey of 
the Los Angeles Public Library discussed 
the work with foreigners. In closing. Miss 
Mackey made a plea for the laying aside 
of an attitude of sui>eriority when dealing 
with foreign pati'ons of libraries, for they 
honestly believe that their nation and their 
literature outranks or equals that of any 
other nation. 

Two round tables were also held on 
^Monday afternoon, one on school libraries 
and the part that they can play in the 
building of Citizenship and Americaniza- 
tion was discussed by Dr. Frederick 
Woellner of the University of California, 
Southern Rx-anch. Miss Winifred F. 
Skinner of the Pasadena High School 
Library presided at this meeting. Miss 
Helen E. Haines gave one of her delight- 
ful talks before this group on "Interesting 
new books for High School libraries." 
Mrs Nettie K. Gravett, librarian of the

LTBRARV ASSOCIATION MEETINGS.

U. 8. Veterans' Hospital No. 24, at Palo 
Alto, pres-ided over the Plospital Libraries 
liouud Table, and the principal speaker 
was Dr. Josephine Jackson, famous nerve 
specialist of Pasadena. Hospital libraiy 
work, iirs Gravett reported, is a result 
'.;f the war when interest was stimulated 
in supplying hospitals with books. Libra- 
ries are now assisting in the work and it 
is spreading to private hospitals and 
l)romises to be a very important phase of 
library work. 

Mouda.v evening a marionette show was 
given, ' ■ S n o w - w h i t e and the seven 
dwarfs," by the municipal players of the 
Los Angeles playground department. It 
was very well put on and much enjoyed. 
This was followed by an Italian carnival 
which was a great success. Some were 
masked and some were hard to recognize 
even without masks. The dignified State 
Librarian was finally found in the role of 
an Italian organ grinder. He was assisted 
in his labors by a well-known bookbindex*. 

Mr H. O. Parkinson presided at the 
I bird general session on Tuesday morning. 
Miss Helen E. Haines of the Los Angeles 
library school read a most interesting 
luiper on "Modern fiction and the public 
library." "Librarians seldom regard fic- 
lion with si-renity," .Miss Haines said, 
and many of the librarians smiled. She 
told of one very excited lady who returned 
to the library a copy of Fabre's "Social 
life in the insect world" and demanded 
that it be withdrawn from circulation be- 
cause it contained "One very passionate 
chapter" ! "Selection and not censorship 
is the i)roblem confronting the librarian 
and the public library should disclaim cen- 
sorship and practice selection" ^liss 
Haines continued. It was a very sane 
and practical paper on the question that 
is always upiiennost in every library. 
I'dlowing comiuunity singing, led by Miss 
Wolff, interesting book symposiums were 
given by noted authorities on varied sub- 
j'cts. Sydney B. Mitchell, associate li- 
brarian of the University of California, 
spoke on architecture applicable to Cali- 
fornia. "California history and desciip- 
ti'On" was the subject of Laura C. Cooley, 
assistant reference librarian of th(> Los 
Angeles I'ublic Library. Francis ]M. 
FultJC, author of the "Elfin forest," spoke 
on "California out-of-doors.'" Each of 
these last three speakers had short printed 



lists of books on their special subjects 
which were much appreciated when they 
were distributed to the librarians. At the 
m'srning business session the delegates 
endorsed a resolution favoring the adop- 
tion of a uniform system of lettering on 
bound magtizines. 

Miss Jasmine Britton of the city 
school library of Los Angeles spoke on 
the restoration of the library of the 
T'niversity of Louvain. Money is much 
needed to complete buildings to house the 
books already collected. Pledges were dis- 
tributed which members were asked to 
fill out and send in. 

The general session on Tuesday after- 
noon was omitted because of the fact that 
Benjamin F. Pearson of the Southern 
California Edison Company, who was to 
luavt* spoken, was unable to be present 
on account of illness. The afternoon 
was devoted to the round table meet- 
ings beginning at three o'clock. All 
those who attended the "Children's 
round tal)le" considered themsel\-es 
very fortunate to hear the .splendid 
discussions on nature study material, 
books for the intermediate grades, children 
and poetry, and esiwcially Miss Frances 
Clarke's delightful account of her exjieri- 
ences in the children's room of the New 
York Public Library. The other rountl 
tables for the afternoon were the "Cata- 
loging and reference round table," pre- 
sided over by E. Louise Pec-k of the San 
Diego Public Library ; and "Buildings and 
equipment." in charge of Miss Helen T. 
Kennedy of the Los Angeles P u b 1 i c 
Library. 

Tuesday evening there were many li- 
brary school and group dinners, a jolly 
crowd that filled the big dining room to 
overflowing. Miss Madge Jenison gave an 
after dinner address on the "Sunwise 
turn," and after dinner the whole party 
adjourned to the ballroom where Mr Don- 
ald K. Dickey gave a natural history film, 
■'Game trails of the North." He showed 
us how he took the pictures of wild 
animals in their native haunts and it made 
a thrilling and most interesting evening. 

On AVednesday Ma- H. J. Stonier, Ex- 
ecutive Secretary, T"nivei"sity of Southern 
California, talked on the "Literature of 
a changing government." "America needs 
less law and more law enforcement. We 
have reached the saturation point in law," 



190 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. [ July, 1924 



Mr Stonier said. "The superabundance of 
laws in America today leads to a feeling 
among the so-called criminal class that 
the law does not mean what it says. Li- 
brarians have a place in eliminating this 
condition by aiding in satisfying the in- 
creasing inquisitiveness of American peo- 
ple in regard to forms and functions of 
government."' Committee reports followed. 
Mr Sydney B. Mitchell was elected as a 
delegate from the C. L. A. to the meeting 
of the A. L. A. The Nominating Com- 
mittee presented its report and the new 
ofEjcei-s for the year 1924-25 unani- 
mously elected were : Mr H. O. Parkinson, 
librarian Stockton Public Library, pres- 
ident ; Miss Helen T. Kennedj% assistant 
libi'arian Los Angeles Public Library, vice 
president; Miss Hazel G. Gibson, Sacra- 
mento County Library, secretary-treas- 
urer. Resolutions were also adopted prais- 
ing the work of Miss Drake, the retiring 
president. "Wednesday morning there 
were three round tables. "University- 
College Round Table," presided over by 
Mr J. E. Goodwin, Librarian of the Uni- 
versity of California, Southern Branch. 
A "I^ending round table," in charge of 
lUanche I'nterkirc-her of the Los Angeles 
I'ublic Library, which discussed the pur- 
pose the library should serve to the pub- 
lic ; and the obligations of the librarian to 
the public. Miss Littlejohn in her short 
talk on "fatigue study" emphasized the 
importance of the librarian keeping physi- 
cally fit in order best to meet these obliga- 
tions. Miss Van "Waters of the Juvenile 
Court of Los Angeles County told vei"y 
effectively in what ways the librarian 
can assist with the work of the Juvenile 
Court. At the "Publicity round table" 
Mr Joeckel of the Bei-keley Public Library 
demonstrated the use of graphs as vivid 
means of showing the development of a 
librarj'. Newspaper and other types of 
publicity were also discussed. 

The members of the Association had 
the privilege in the afternoon of visiting 
the Henry E. Huntington Library at San 
Marino. Arrangements were made by the 
Chamber of Commerce for the transporta- 
tion of the visitors from the hotel to the 
San Marino estate of Mr Huntington 
where the world-famous library is located. 
Dr. George "^^'^atson Cole, librarian of the 
Huntington LibraiT, was host to the 
large group of visitors during the after- 



noon. The Gutenberg Bible was one of 
the very special treasures on view. After 
leaving the Huntington Library the visit- 
ore had a drive around Pasadena and tea 
was served at the Spanish room of the 
Yroman bookstore. The trip was a de- 
lightful ending to a very interesting meet- 
ing. There was a record attendance, about 
480 librarians and friends being present 
during the meeting. The thanks of the 
members are due the officers of 1923^1924, 
Miss Drake, Mr Parkinson, and Miss Gib- 
son, for such as successful meeting. 

On Thursday, May 1st, the County 
Librarians met for a special session on 
county library work, Mr Ferguson pre- 
siding. 

The county librarians responded to roll 
call with a two-minute statement of 
"something accomplished, something 
done." but as the present writer is not a 
shorthand reporter it is imiwssible to 
give a full account of all the interesting 
things that they are doing. 

Mrs Linn reported for the sign commit- 
tee that the county library signs may 
again be obtained. The price is .$4.7r) 
each in lots of ten or more, or .$.").!. ") in 
smaller numbers. 

Miss Provines, the treasurer, reported 
•f'.jT.SiO in the treasury and reminded us 
that the convention fee of one dollar was 
now due and payable. 

After luncheon there was a discussion 
of several interesting library questions. 
Most interesting of all, to judge from the 
discussion, was the question of a visiting 
instructor in book mending, the general 
opinion being that if it were possible to 
have such an instructor, it would be 
most useful. 

Miss McCardle read a paper on "The 
best new books for the teachei-s' library," 
which she informed us was written by 
Anne Bell Bailey of her staff. She also 
agreed to send to any librarian a copy of 
the list of books recommended which will 
be very useful to all of us. 

Miss JNIargaret W. Smith of the Santa 
Clara County Library told of "A new 
assistant's experience with school work," 
telling of her work with the schools this 
past year. 

^Nliss Provines told in a delightful way 
of her work with the State Prison.

Mrs Babcock read the report of the 
resohitious committee on the resignation 
of Miss' Celia Gleason as county librarian 
of Los Angeles County, as follows : 

"We, the County Librarians of Califor- 
nia in convention assembled, desire to 
express to Miss Celia Gleason our profound 
appreciation of her years of faithful and 
efficient service as Librarian of the Los 
Angeles County Free Library, our un- 
shaken and unsliakable confidence in her 
integrity, lienor, and ability as a woman, 
as an executive, and as a public official. 

"We desire to assure her of our love, 
our loyalty, and our profound regret and 
sorrow over her resignation as Librarian 
of the Los Angeles County Free Librarj', 
whicli under her skillful and efficient man- 
agement has developed into tlie largest 
and most effective institution of its kind, 
not only in California, but in the United 
States, and in which we, as County Li- 
brarians, feel a deep professional pride 
and appreciation, because of its remarka- 



ble development and snlendid achieve- 
ment." 

The county librarians and their assist- 
ants had dinner together on Wednesday 
night, followed by Miss Hadden's Mon- 
terey County Library film, a moving pic- 
ture taken by Miss Hadden's brother of a 
trip over Monterey County, visiting 
branches and schools. It made some of 
the librarians who do not ride horseback 
feel that Miss Hadden has some special 
problems in her county. 

There is one really dreadful thing 
about a County Library meeting and that 
is the saying good-bye for another year, 
but it had to be done and the fifteenth 
annual California County Librarians' con- 
vention was over. 



HOW THE CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY CAN BE OF ASSISTANCE 
TO LOCAL LAW LIBRARIES, COURTS AND ATTORNEYS. 

By Herbert Y. Clayton, Law and Legislative Reference Librarian, 
California State Library. 



The local law libraries of California — 
county, bar association, and private law 
Iil>raries — vary greatly in the extent and 
variety of their contents, from those con- 
taining possibly nothing but a fairly re- 
cent edition of our codes, and maybe also 
one or more of our recent statutes, up to 
the county law library containing some 
fifty thousand or more volumes. 

As is said by Frederick C. Hicks, li- 
brarian of the Columbia University Law 
Library, in his recent book entitled 
"Materials and Methods of Legal Re- 
search," on pages 283 and 284 : 

"Few lawyer's are able to possess all of 
the law books that they would like to 
have. The young lawyer especially must 
limit himself to a selection of books. 
Often he can not own what he considers 
to be the desirable minimum ; such as the 
reports of the highest court of his state, 
the latest revision of laws, the codes, local 
practice books, and a few treatises. Many 
can add to the above only a set of anno- 
tated reports covering a wide I'ange of 
cases and containing useful comments on 
other cases, or the National Reporter cov- 
ering their own and adjoining states. 
Others possess also a comprehensive di- 
gest, or an alphabetically arranged text ; 
such as Ruling Case Law, or Corpus 
Juris. But whatever the scope of one's 



personal collection, the time usually comes 
when it will not suffice. The needs of 
legal research are often very extensive, so 
that recoui"se must be had to large law 
libraries." 

What ]Mr Hicks says iu regard to pri- 
vate law libraries is also just as true of 
the smaller county law libraries, and even 
the largest of them are at times unable 
to supply all of the books and other 
material that their patrons need. When 
liiis situation arises, why shouldn't they 
call upon other law libraries in their vicin- 
ity for the desired publications, and if 
they are not available locally, Avhy not 
then check the matter up to the State 
Library? That is in the main the system 
now followed in the county free libraries; 
and should not the local law libraries, 
upon which the average well trained judge 
and lawyer place so much reliance for 
material upon which to base their opinions 
or arguments, follow a somewhat similar 
procwlure? The local law library can not 
ordinarily afford to own all of the law 
books that its patrons need, even if it 
were possible for it to procure them. 
Many law books are out of print, or rare, 
and costly and their purchase even when 
available is not advisable for any but the 
larger law libraries. The books that 
should be purchased by the attorney, or 



192 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. 



[July, 1924 



the local law library, are those that he, 
or its patrons, need most ; and those 
that he or it can not afford to own should 
be borrowed from other law libraries as 
the need for them arises. 

The county law library should know 
what books are possessed by the other 
law libraries of that particular county. 
This can be accomplished by means of a 
union card catalog- maintained in the 
county law library. This catalog should 
contain at least one card for each law 
book (not each coi>y of ^ai book) to be 
found in th^ various law libraries in the 
county. Upon this card (either upon its 
face or back, or upon a supplemental 
card) should be stamped or written the 
names of tlie libraries containing that par- 
ticular book (or edition thereof). The 
patrons of all of the law libraries in the 
county would soon come to realize the 
extreme value of the union catalog and 
would insist on its always being kept right 
up to date. The woi'k of preparing and 
maintaining such a catalog Avould be com- 
paratively light, and even in the more 
heavily populated counties should not 
prove burdensome. 

Besides the resources of all the law 
libraries in the county, there should be 
availalile to the courts and • attorneys 
thereof, through the county law library, 
the resources of the county free library 
and also of the various independent cit.y 
libraries of the county. It is frequently 
necessary for an attorney to use scientific 
treatis'es in the preparation and argu- 
ment of his cases, political and economic 
works and general literature in the prep- 
aration of addresses for special occasions, 
and a wide variety of material with wlaich 
to keep abreast of the times. Wliy should 
he not obtain these through the one li- 
brary in the county with which he has 
almost daily contact? Such a system of 
ihterlibrary book loans within the coun- 
ties themselves is certainly both feasible 
and practicable. Even with such an 
arrangement there would frequently be 
times when it would be advisable to call 
upon the State Library for assistance. 

In the law department of the California 
State Library are to be found a practi- 
cally complete collection of the reports of 
the decisions of the courts', digests of deci- 
sions, the codes, statutes, and session laws, 
and the legal periodicals, not only of this 



country but of all the countries of which 
English is the official language. General 
digests and legal encyclopedias of the 
United States and of England are also 
available. A large number of the text- 
books published in this country, and a 
good selection from those pu^blished in 
Canada and England are there also. Most 
of the printed proceedings of the bar asso- 
ciation of the various states are on its 
shelves, as is also a collection of legal 
miscellany covering trial tactics, legal 
history, legal essays, etc. It also has a 
very good collection of trials. Last, but 
not least in value to courts and attorneys, 
it has a bound collection of the printed 
records and briefs filed in the California 
Supreme Court and in the California Dis- 
trict Courts of Appeal dating back to the 
early clays of those courts and coming 
right down to the last published volumes 
of the reports of decisions thereof. There 
are some sixty thousand books all told in 
the law department of the California 
State Library. 

The general reference department of 
that librai*y with its extensive resources 
in all fields of literature, useful arts, 
sciences, engineering, history, etc., is a 
veritable mine of valuable information on 
almost any subject that is liable to engage 
tlie attention of any of our law library 
patrons. The constitutional histories, 
biographies and speeches of eminent 
.iudges, lawyers and statesTaen of all ages, 
books on handwriting, forgery, inks, 
poisons, chemistry, medicine, debating, and 
surveying are all books that lawyers fre- 
quently need to consult, and are there 
waiting to serve them. 

Tlie documents department, as is re- 
peatedly stated in News Notes of Cali- 
fornia Libraries, "aims to collect, arrange 
and make available government publica- 
tions, federal, state, city and foreign." 
Of its collection those probably of most 
interest to judges and lawyers are : Inter- 
state commerce commission reports, Treas- 
ur,v decisions. Public land decisions. Court 
of claims reports. Patent decisions, Deci- 
sions of the Comptroller of the Treasury. 
Treasury decisions under internal revenue 
laws of the U. S., Opinions of the Attor- 
neys General of the LT. S., Opinions of the 
.Judge Advocates General of the Army, 
reports of the various oflicers, boards, 
commissions, departments, etc., of this

statr, of tha several states in the Union 
and of the United States government, the 
Congressional Record, and the legislative 
bills and resolutions of our own state 
Ic.aislature and of Congress. 

The California department, to quote 
again from Netcs Notes of Galifornm 
Libraries, "aims to have a thoroughly 
good collection of books on the history and 
description, resources and industries of the 
slate, as well as the works of CaJifomia 
authors in all departments of literature. 
These are made acces'sible by means of a 
card catalog. Full names and biographical 
sketches of California authors, artists, 
musicians, pioneers and early settlers are 
being secured, together with their photo- 
graphs. The collection of bound periodi- 
cals is qnitv^ large. The department also 
contains aliout 7000 bound volumes of 
newspapers, a file of which is being in- 
dexed with reference to the histoid of the 
state." The newspapers are to the lawyer 
undoubtedly the most valuable material in 
the department. They may not be with- 
drawn from the library, l)ut cameragraph 
copies of legal notices and other matter 
therein will he furnished by the library 
at cost. 

The Books for tlie Blind dei)artmenl 
contains some fifteen thousand books em- 
bossed in the various types in common use 
among blind readei-s. While none of the 
books is of a legal nature still many of 
them would undoubtedly be a welcome 
addition to the reading of the attorneys 
of this state wlio are afflicted with 
blindness. 

The great hulk of the material in the 
State Library is subject to loan at any 
time. The material not Loaned consists of 
encyclopedias, digests, dictionaries, in- 
dexes to periodicals, and other reference 
material, much of which will be found in 
almost any library. It also includes news- 
papers, rare books, some government pub- 
lications, and some unbound material. 
However, the court reports, statutes, 
codes, session laws, legal textbooks, 
periodicals, bound court records, and legal 
miscellany, belonging to the law depart- 
ment, and most of the material in the 
other depai'tments of the library that law- 
yers would be liable to have occasion to 
use, are available for circulation. 

Material to be used away from Sacra- 
mento should be requested through the 



county free library in counties having such 
a library, otherwise through the nearest 
city library. The request may be filed 
with the county law library, or with the 
local city library, which will foi-ward it 
to the county free library. In cas'e it has 
the requested material on its shelves, or 
at one of its branches not too distantly 
removed, the request will if possible be 
filled therefrom ; otherwise the request 
will be forwarded to the State Library. 
The local library will forward the request 
direct to the State Library in case there 
is no county free library in that county. 
In forwarding the request to the State 
Library the county free library may desig- 
nate that the material is to be sent direct 
to the library originally requesting it, the 
county fi-ee library in any case guarantee- 
ing the return of the material. Transpor- 
tation on books is paid by the borrowing- 
library. Books are Loaned for a period 
of five weeks, subject to renewal for an 
additional period of two weeks, with the 
understanding, however, that they may be 
recalled by the State Library in case they 
are needed by a state officer, or if in the 
opinion of the state librarian a recall is 
fair and expedient. State officers (judges 
of .superior courts included) are entitled 
to borrow books direct from the State Li- 
brary, and attorneys are accorded the 
same privilege upon the presentation of a 
request signed l)y a supreme, appellate 
or superior judge, or other state oflSicer. 

The State Library maintains a free 
employment bureau that helps to bring in 
touch with each other librarians and li- 
brary assistants desiring employment or a 
change of location and libraries having 
vacancies on their staffs to fill. This 
service is for law librarians and law 
libi'aries and other special libraries as well 
as for general libraries and those trained 
for that line of library work. It is a 
service that should be taken advantage of 
by all kinds of libi'aries and librarians. 

The State Library will at any time be 
pleased to give advice to other law libra- 
ries of the state regarding the purchase 
of additional books. Libraries desiring 
to avail themselves of this service should 
indicate in a general way just what their 
present collection consists of, what books 
they have calls for and do not have, and 
an estimate of the amount of money that 
they will haA'e available for additions.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. 



[ Juljr, 1924 



Funds should ordinarily be invested: (1) 
in boolis that will be of permanent value ; 
(2) in books of reference that may in the 
course of a fev^r years become more or 
less out of date but that will in the mean- 
time be used sufficiently to justify their 
purchase, and (3) in standard textbooks. 
Most textbooks, codes and statutes of 
other states and countries, foreign reports, 
and American side reports (reports other 
than those containing the decisions of the 
courts of last resort of the various states) 
can be borrowed from the State Library 
whenever needed, and their purchase by 
the smaller library is ordinarily a waste 
of funds. 

The State Library has citators for the 
United States reports. National Reporter 
System, and most of the state reports, 
and Rose's Notes on United States Re- 
ports and similar sets covering the reports 
of some of the states. Some of these pub- 
lications include constitutional and statu- 
tory citations; and the library also has 
exten.sively annotated sets of codes and 
compiled statutes of other states. 

If anyone wants to know where a con- 
stitutional or statutory provision has been 
cited or construed, or a case has been 
cited, affiirmed, reversed, modified, or dis- 
tinguished, he may write to the State Li- 
brary, and the desired information will be 
immediately forwarded to him. 

The California Law Review should be 
in every law library in the state that con- 
tains more than five hundred volumes. 
Other legal periodicals may be borrowed 
from the State Library or consulted at it 
or at one of the other large law libraries. 

Every law library that contains more 
than one thousand volumes should own 
a set of the indexes to legal periodicals, 
the current volumes of which are pub- 
lished by the American Association of 
Law Libraries. They are a set of keys 
that will unlock for the lawyer an ex- 
tremely valuable mine of information, and 
that will help him to keep abreast of the 
current developments of the law. These 
indexes ai"e issued quarterly and then 
cumulated each year into annual volumes. 
They index practically all of the leading 
legal periodicals of the United States and 
of the British Empire, as well as the pro- 
ceedings of the various bar associations of 
the United States and Canada. Some ai'ti- 



cles of a semilegal nature published in 
other periodicals are also covered. 

If a library does not contain a set of 
these indexes and' it wishes to know what 
has been published in the legal periodicals 
along any particular line, a request may 
be sent to the State Library the same as 
for a book, the request stowing the 
specific subject to be looked up, the period 
of time to be covered, whether merely a 
list of the articles published is desired or 
a list and one or more of the leading 
articles. 

Every law library of more than one 
thousand volumes should contain at least 
one legal directory of comparatively re- 
cent publication. The two leading ones 
(Hubbell's and Martindale's) contain not 
only lists of attorneys practicing in the 
various cities of this and other states and 
the Canadian provinces, but also excellent 
summaries of the laws of those states and 
provinces, of the outlying possessions of 
the United States, and of Mexico and a 
few other 'foreign jurisdictions. The State 
Library will be pleased to furnish any of 
the information contained in these publi- 
cations, except that relating to the stand- 
ing of the various attorneys listed therein 
— which information the library agrees 
with the publishers not to circulate. 

The State Library also maintains in 
connection with its law department a 
legislative reference service whose pur- 
pose is to supply members of the legisla- 
ture with information relative to past, 
current, and prospective legislation. While 
this service is primarily for the members 
of the legislature the law libraries and 
attorneys of the state are also urged to 
make use of it. 

The State Library maintains a "Union 
Catalog" in which are to be found cards, 
alphabetically arranged, covering practi- 
cally all of the books to be found in the 
county free libraries of the state, in some 
of the city libraries, and many in the gen- 
eral librai'ies of the University of Cali- 
fornia, Leland Stanford University, and 
the University of Southern California. 
When the State Library receives a request 
for a book that it does not have in its 
own collection this Union Catalog is con- 
sulted and the library or individual re- 
questing the book is notified as to where 
it may be found. So far it contains but 
few cards for law books as only a conj- 



vol. 19, 110. 3] 



STATE AND LOCAI. LAW LIBRARIES.

Ijaratively few law books are to be found 
iu the general libraries of the state, and 
to date only a very few of the law li- 
braries of the state have sent in cards 
covering their collections. 

It is not necessary that one have a 
highly developed imaginative faculty in 
order to be able to visualize the general 
benefit to the law libraries of the state 
of having in one place a catalog covering 
all of the law books to be found in all 
of the public libraries of the state. The 
larger law libraries contain many law 
books the use of which is infrequent and 
the cost of which is prohibitive to the 
smaller libraries. These boojfs would be 
just as valuable to the libraries that own 
them, and of more value to the courts and 
the lawyers of the state in general, if 
they were all listed in the Union Catalog 
at the State Library, from which they 
could be readily located for anyone in 
any part of the state. 

A short time ago the State Library 
received a request for the laws of the 
Republic of Honduras relating to aliens 
and their property. The library did not 
l)ossess the desired book or books and the 
Fnion Catalog contained no cards for 
Honduras statutes or codes. It imme- 
diately wrote to four of the larger law 
libraries of the state to ascertain if they 
])ossessed a book or books giving the de- 
sired information, but by the time that it 
had received a favorable response from 
one of them the party for whom the in- 
formation was desired had referred the 
matter to an attorney in a large eastern 
city. If cards for the desired books had 
been in the Union Catalog one California 
attorney would have earned a fee that, as 
it was, went to an eastern attorney. 

The main things that the public law 
libraries of the state lack at the present 
time are: (1) a vision of a more exten- 
sive as well as' a more intensive service 
in their own communities, and (2) a 
spirit of cooperation that will link them 
up with the other public — general as well 
as law — libraries of the state. They 
buy books and hoard them up, apparently 
for no other puii)Ose than their use right 
in the local library itself. Most of the 
county law libraries, however, do permit 
attorneys to withdraw books for use be- 
fore courts in session in the court house, 



but at least one such librarj' is reported 
as charging a fee for the privilege. Most 
of them not only will not loan books to 
other libraries but they seem to consider 
it to be entirely beyond their sphere to 
supplement their own collections with 
books borrowed from other libraries. 

Why should not a county law library 
freely loan its books to any and all of the 
judges, lawyers, law students, and county 
officials and enuijloyees of the countj', 
whether located at the county seat or 
elsewhere? The books therein are public 
property and undoubtedly the general pub- 
lic would be better served by the above 
mentioned classes were they allowed a 
wide latitude in the use of such books. 
Those people have ordinarily to be at 
their own places of business during li- 
brary hours and can frequently make 
better use of the books away from the 
library than they can at it. W(ho is 
there in the state today among the 
patrons of the county free libraries who 
would advocate that those libraries should 
discontinue the loaning of books? As a 
nratter of fact, why should not the books 
in the county law libraries circulate just 
as freely as' the books in the county free 
libraries? Are the books in the county 
law libraries any the less public property 
than the books in the county free libra- 
ries? 

If a young man or a young wom'an in 
a remote part of a county desires to study 
law, why should not he or she be allowed 
to borrow the necessary books through the 
local branch of the county free library? 
We have no law prohibiting county law 
libraries from loaning their books through 
the county free libi'aries and their 
branches. Would it not be better for the 
books to be worn out than for them to 
stand idle on the shelves of the libraries 
week after week and month after month? 

Undoubtedly the librarians and library 
boai'ds that are unwilling to cooperate with 
other libraries do not realize the value of 
cooperation. This is an age of coopera- 
tion and nowhere is it more extensively 
practiced on a large scale than in this 
state. We hear it discus&ed on every 
hand. The county free library system of 
the state is a cooperative scheme, and 
the county free libraries hare certainly 
prospered. Why should not the county 
law libraries of the state fall into line and 



196 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. 



[July, 1924 



render a service that will be comparable 
to that I'endered by their sister libraries V 

In the county free library law there is 
a section making possible a close connec- 
tion between the county law library and 
the county fi'ee library. It provides that 
the board of supervisors may enter into 
a contract or agreement with the board of 
law library trustees, whereby the law li- 
brary may be conducted by the county 
librarian and her staff for a compensation 
to be named therein. Such an arrange- 
ment assures the county law library of 
expert library service. Some of the coun- 
ties are now working under this plan, 
Fresno and Kern counties being striking 
examples of the practical utility thereof. 

ilodern appliances and modern methods 
should be installed in the public law 
libraries of th« state just as they have 
been in the majority of the other public 
libraries thereof. They are certainlj 
Ijroving their value in the libraries that 
have adopted them. 

Every law library of any size should 
have a good card catalog covering all of 
the books in its collection ; and the books 
should lie cataloged according to approved 
library methods. The writer recommends 
that textbooks, casebooks, and series of 
rep'Orts on special subjects be classified 
according to the Dewey decimal classifica- 
tion scheme. This was done in the Kern 
County Law Library when Mrs Julia G. 
Babcock, librarian of the Kern C'Ounty 
Free Library, took it under her supervi- 
sion ; and a year's experience in that li- 
brary converted the writer from an advo- 
cate of the author arrangement of text- 
books and legal miscellany to that of an 
advocate of the arrangement thereof 
according to the decimal classification. 
While that classification is not as satis- 
factory for law books as it might be, yet 
his experience is that it is a big improve- 
ment over the commonly accepted author 
arrangement. 

In regard to the subject headings to be 
used in your card catalog the writer sug- 
gests that you procure from the Library 
of Congress its Tentative Headings and 
Cr0iss-R?feren'ces for a Subject Cata- 
logue of American and English Law, and 
that it be your guide. You will most 
likely find it necessary to add subject 
headings and cross-references from time 
to time, but do not substitute other head- 



ings for those used therein unless you 
are firmly convinced that it will help to 
make your catalog more usable. Always 
bear in mind that a subject heading suit- 
able for use in general catalogs may when 
used in a law catalog, on account of a 
difference between the popular and the 
egal meaning thereof, apply to an entirely 
different •ov more limited class of books. 
On L. C. cards you will find that the 
subject headings to be used in law cata- 
logs are enclosed by brackets. A law 
dictionary is also one of the necessary 
tools of a cataloger of law books. 

Every public law library should also 
have in operation a good modern system 
of charging books to borrowers, and of 
notifying borrowers when books are over- 
due. 

It pays to advertise in a law library as 
well as elsewhere. New books should be 
displayed in a conspicuous place in the 
library for a few weeks. It would be well 
to post above or near them a label calling 
particular attention to the fact that they 
are new books. One or more bulletin 
boards should also occupy conspicuous 
places in the liljrary. One of them might 
well bear the heading: Books Recently 
Ordered ov Received. The other might lie 
headed : Books That Will Be Borrowed 
From State Library Upou Request. Be- 
low the respective headings can be dis- 
played publishers" circulars regarding new 
or forthcoming books that may be of 
interest to patrons of the library. 

Do not be afraid to stimulate a desire 
for publications that your library does 
not possess and has not the money to 
purchase — the books in your State Li- 
brary are at your service. Also please 
feel perfectly free to check up to the 
State Library at any time any and all of 
your vexatious library problems. 

As law librarians, do not neglect, to 
read the current literature relating to 
library work in genei'al as well as that 
devoted specifically to law libraries and 
other special libraries. Library problems 
are pretty much the same in law libraries 
and in other special libraries as they are 
in general libraries ; and methods and 
practices successfully applied in one li- 
brary can ordinarily be readily adapted so 
as to accomplish the same end in almost 
any other library. You can test this out 
for yourself by borrowing from the State

Library, and reading', any i>iii' ui" more of 
a uuinlnT of t-urrout books aud iiamphlet.s 
on library economy. In addition you 
should by all meau.s own. study, and use 
a copy of Hicks' Materials and ^lethods 
of Tjegal Research. It treats of law li- 
braries, and of law books and their use, 
and contains an excellent bibliographical 
nTanual. It is a guide that law librarians 
have long needed. 

The librarians of the county free li- 
braries of the state meet in convention 
each year, usually at the same place as. 
and immediately preceding or following 
the sessions of, the California Library 
Association. There they discuss their 
work and learn to know each other better. 
A\1!iy would it not be a fine thing for the 
law librarians of the state to hold a con- 
vention each year at the same place and 
time as the convention 'of the librarians 
III" the county free libraries? There is a 
iinlional organization of law librarians 
known as the American Association of 
Law Libraries. It holds its annual con- 
\-entions at the same time and place as 
the American Library Association. ]Many 
of the leading law librarians of the coun- 
try attend these sessions. It is due to its 
efforts and encouragement that the in- 
dexes to legal periodicals covering the 
period of from 1S98 to date have been 
iniblished. It was also responsible for 
the recent issuance of a check list of the 
bar a.ssociation proceedings of the L^nited 
States and Canada. The problems dis- 
cussed at its meetings are those of the 
smaller law libraries as well as the lai'ger. 
Its proceedings, including the papers read 
at its various sessions, have been pub- 
lished in the Law Library .Tournal which 
is issued as a supplement to the numbers 
of the Index to Legal Periodicals, and 
Mhich is also now being issued separately. 
A perusal of its pages will be a help to 



.uiy law iibrarian in llic way of inspira- 
tion aud new ideas of value in his daily 
work. A state association of law libra- 
rians would necessarily be more limited in 
its sphere of action, but the law libra- 
rians of this state certainly have prob- 
lems enough confronting them to devote 
two days each year to their discussion in 
a convention where there would be a free 
interchange of ideas and plans. Not only 
that, but they would become acquainted 
with each other, and cooperation would 
follow just as naturally as night follows 
day. 

A library organizer from the State Li- 
brary goes out over the state to assist in 
the organization of new county free li- 
braries, and to help all of them to do 
better and more effective work. She 
discusses their problems with them, tells 
them what other libraries are doing and 
how they are doing it, and helps them 
in any and eveiy way that slie can. 
When advisable she talks to the memljers 
of their boards, to clubs, to societies, and 
to others that are or may be interested 
in the work that the county library is 
doing or should be doing in their com- 
munities. At the presient time there is 
not sufficient demand to warrant a similar 
service to county law libraries. But if 
the time should come when such a work 
could profitably be taken up, the State 
Library will make every effort to provide 
such service. Whatever we do to build 
up our local law libraries and cause them 
to render better service to the courts and 
attorneys of the state will be a helji 
toward the better and more efficient ad- 
ministration of justice therein. May the 
day speedily come when all of the law 
liliraries of the state will be working har- 
moniously together on the problems that 
confront them.

The School Dei>artment has had a 
busy quarter with the closing of the most 
of the schools and the opening of those 
in the mountains. It has been necessary, 
on account of lack of room at the main 
library, to leave mojt of the books at the 
school-house through the summer. The 
books have been checked up and this has 
taken a great deal of time. 

There has been excellent co-operation 
from the teachers and most of the school 
libraries were in good condition. 

The new district of Pinedale has joined 
the library. This was formerly served as 
a part of the Lincoln District. 

The Cantua School on the West Side is 
issuing books to the people of the com- 
munity through the summer months.

member of the C. L. A. for years and was 
quite proud of the fact. 

Boys' Week was observed in the Juve- 
nile Department with collections of books 
and lists calculated to interest them in 
books written for their si)ecial tastes. 

We have a new custodian at the Fire- 
baugh Branch, Mrs Walter Bishop, and at 
Miller Branch, Mrs Emma Coates. Cen- 
ter Branch, located in the Hospitality 
Center of the Y. W. C. A., has been 
closed for the summer as the association 
will not carry on their work there during 
those months. 

Several trips have been made to the 
mountain branches and these have been 
found in good condition. Mrs Lofberg, 
who has charge of the camp libraries for 
the Southern California Edison Company, 
is doing a fine work and the men appre- 
ciate the books very much. They read a 
remarkably good class of books, many 
carrying on their studies through the 
library.

On April 23 Mr Bertram Grosvenor 
Goodhue, Architect of the Central Library 
building, died suddenly in New York City 
of heart failure. His. death was a severe 
loss to 'the architectural profession in 
general and was a grievous shock to his 
friends in Los Angeles and to the members 
of the Library Board. Fortunately plans 
for the Central Library building were 
practically completed, which simplified the 
situation arising after his death. After 
conferences with the legal representatives 
of all parties concerned, an agreement has 
been reached, in accordance with which 
the Associate Architect, Mr Carleton J\I. 
Winslow, will complete the contract with 
the Library Board and will furnish 
detailed drawings and the necessary super- 
vision during construction. In fact the 
plans and specifications have ah'eady been 
completed and bids have been advertised 
for and August 13 set as the day on 
which they should be received. 

Early in June ihe contract for th<^ 
rough grading of the Central Library site 
and excavation for foundations was com- 
pleted, about 75,000 cubic yards having 
been removed at a cost of approximately 
$56,000. 

The City Council has sold the balance 
of the bonds of the 1921 issue, amounting 
to $1,333,000, and also the entire issue 
of 1023, amounting to $.500,000, which

was voted for the purpose of acquiring 
rlie Flower .street frontage of the Central 
I-.ibrary site. 

Owing to certain conditions attached, 
Ihe City Council saw fit to reject the 
pi'oposed gift of Miss Arline Barnsdall. 
This was eight acres of ground surround- 
ing her residence on Olive Hill, and the 
residence itself which she intended for a 
branch library. 

On May Gth, by an overwhelming 
majority, the voters of Los Angeles, ap- 
itrovcd a new City Charter. In this 
charter the library tax rate is increased 
tive cents to seven cents on every one hun- 
dred dollars worth of assessed valuation. 

On .June 10th the last of the branch 
libraries to be constructed from funds 
appropriated from the 1921 bond issue 
was opened. This was the branch at 10th 
and Gaffey Streets in San Pedro. The 
total cost was approximately .$75,000, of 
which .$10,000 was spent for the site. 

During this quarter two branches have 
been removed to larger quarters, the El 
Sereno Branch to -5022 Huntington Drive 
and the Gardena Branch to 827^ Palms 
Street, Gardena. In these new locations 
it is expected that they will enter upon a 
new period of usefulness. 

On the first of .Tune the library suffered 
a great loss in the resignation of Miss M. 
Grace Smitli, principal of the fiction de- 
partment, who was forced to give up her 
work on account of poor health. In her 
place Miss Katharine D. Kendig was ap- 
IKjiuted. Miss Kendig had been acting as 
principal of the Cahuenga Branch Li- 
brary. To succeed her there Miss Alice

Plans for next year include special work 
in the Library of Congress classification, 
which is being used in many university 
libraries, and special courses for children's 
librarians. The demand for catalogers 
and children's librarians increases, and it 
is hoped that these courses will prepare 
more persons for such positions.

The building has been painted and 
tinted outside and in, and some odds and 
ends of cabinet work have been done 
which have added very much to ease of 
working for the staff. 

A garage to shelter four motors has 
been built, for the use of the staff. 

We hung the Syracuse Public Library's 
"Map of Good Stories" conspicuously in 
our rotunda, and displayed the novels 
alluded to on a nearby table. This was 
siTch a success that in a day or so we 
had to take down the map, for lack of 
any more novels. 

In May we displayed in our sliowcase 
some books which had been subjected to 
improper handling. On each was a ticket, 
to explain its presence. On top of the 
showcase was a card giving the cost of 
replacement of these books whose working 
life had been shortened by abuse, not by 
legitimate wear. The newspapers gave 
us plenty of publicity, and the books told 
their own story to library visitors.

The most important development dur- 
ing the la.st quarter has been a change in 
quartei-s for the Elmhurst and Oak Park 
branches. Through the courtesy of the 
City Board of Education, the Library 
was given permission to partition off one 
half of a bungalow on the Coloma School 
grounds, making a distinct room for the 
Library. The walls were covered with 
gray beaver board, new shelving and fur- 
niture added, which, with the bright col- 
ured posters and pictures, have made the 
room most attractive, A corner was set 
apart for a special collection of children's 
books. An experiment was made in open- 
ing the room Saturday afternoon with 
Miss Miller in charge, while Miss Chiles 
of the Periodical Department told stories 
every other Saturday. The story hour 
was ^iven a most enthusiastic reception

and the increase in circulation for two 
months was over 600. 

A three years' lease was taken of a one- 
story building on Sacramento Boulevard 
and on June 1st the Oak Park Branch 
was moved. Tlie gray tinted walls and 
newly polished furniture have transformed 
the branch. An increas'e of 500 in the 
circulation for June indicates that the 
change was advisable. 

Margaret Chiles has taken charge of liiu

tion of Mrs Thwaites. She still remains

periud than the last three months inas- 
niiich as the apportionment for the year 
is .i^lOlMJ more than last year and part of 
it was received in February. However, 
eveiyone will no doubt rejoice with those 
benefited even though the news be late. 
Contrary to wihat mig:ht be expected iwssi- 
bly, no advance in salaries was made 
because those in authority, at the sugges- 
tion of the librarian, thought the ^^-iser 
tliinjr to do was to tint the interior and 
\nrnish the woodwork and on the outside 
paint all wood. As nothing had been doue 
txcept vairnish the floors three or four 
limes since the building was opened to the 
public in Aiugust, 1913, it seemed that 
much good would be the result. Block 
lettei-s have been placed on the building 
notifying the public that this is the 
'■UPLAND PUBLIC LIBRARY," a 
great addition and really adding to the 
beauty of the building as it looks as 
though it had always been there. Awn- 
ings also have been placed on the 
^^ est side over the three groups of win- 
dows and ventilators, making the room 
cooler for readers and making a softer 
light alsfl. Since the city ti'ustees and 
city engineer have moved down town, the 
room formerly used by tlie city engineer 
has been transformed into a Baby Con- 
ference room, beautifully decorated and 
furnished by the Red Cross Chapter. 
This is open every Tuesday for the benefit 
of the babies of this vicinity and is in 
charge of the city nurse, Mrs Lottie Fuller, 
and Dr. Mary Craig "Williamson. A long 
closet used formerly by the city engineer 
has had a door cut through one end and 
shelving put up and in there are kept 
magazines that may not be kept in filing 
cases as their value may be only tempo- 
raiy. 

The first inventory ever taken of the 
library was in January, 1924, and to the 
eredit of all concerned may it be said that 
but 87 books were missing that could not 
be accounted for in some way. 

^liss Aurelia Ilarwood made a gift of 
a $100 check to the library fund for books 
and R. R. Harrington one of $50 for the 
same ])urpose. Blessed be our friends !

The city trustees planted a pepper tree 
on the west side of the library and two 
evergreens at the front I'ecently. Upland 
Public Librai7' is in the only park in the 
city consequently it is used for piiblic 
affairs more than many libraries and the

Mrs Henry Lippitt, president of our 
Board of Librai^y Trustees, and ten of our 
staff attended the annual meeting of the 
California Library Association at Pasa- 
dena April 2Sth to 30'th. Miss Louise 
Peck, head of our catalog department, 
planned and conducted the program of the 
combined catalog and reference sections. 
]Miss Lena Hunzicker, head of our refer- 
ence department, was chairman of a com- 
mittee to investigate the practicability of 
a uniform method of marking bound maga- 
zines which presented recommendations 
and an exhibit. Miss Helen Dysart, our 
children's librarian, spoke on books for 
the intermediate age at the meeting of the 
children's section. Miss Warren spoke on 
entertainment material at the municipal 
section. Mrs Mary Fraser, head of our 
business department, contributed a side 
show to the Mondaj' night's carnival. 

That the library workers of San Diego 
who could not go to the C. L. A. meeting 
might hear Miss Madge Jenison, our li- 
brary combined with the San Diego 
branch of the American Literary Associa- 
tion to have her for dinner and a talk on 
the evening of April 29th. As a result of 
our president's attendance at the C. L. A. 
in Pasadena in April the Board of Library 
Trustees has adopted a resolution that in 
the future the librarian's expenses are to 
be paid to all annual library meetings. 
This has not before been the policy. 

East San Diego, the largest incorpora- 
ted city next to San Diego in our county, 
last fall voted to become a part of San 
Diego. The election was contested, how- 
ever, and annexation can only be assured 
by decision of the supreme court. As a 
temporary expedient the San Diego 
County Free Librai-y has agreed to run 
the East San Diego Library, under con- 
tract with the city of San Diego, until 
January, 1925. Tlie San Diego city 
council has by special ordinance appro- 
priated funds to remunerate the county 
for current expenses. By next year it is 
expected that the controversy will be set- 
tled by a court decision. 

Valuable help in the development of our 
station and branch system is being given

the library by the Parent Teachers Asso- 
ciation. In the Spanish quarter, known as 
Old Town, the P. T. A. of the Fremont 
School secured the use of a room in a dis- 
used school building from the Board of 
Education, fitted it with book cases and 
reading tables, and for a year paid one of 
the women of the neighborhood to issue 
books to children and grown-ups two 
afternoons a week. The books- were sup- 
plied by our stations department. Their 
use has justified the library trustees in 
taking over, from July 1, 1924, all ex- 
penses of the little branch. Tlie Parent 
Teachers Association of the Florence 
School is, as part of a vacation play- 
ground in one of the richer sections of the 
city, making the same experiment this 
summer. If the circulation is sufiicient 
the public library will establish a commu- 
nity branch, with a trained librarian at 
the Florence School.

Mrs Millar, who has been conducting a 
course in "Special Libraries" at the Uni- 
versity of California Library School, 
brought her class on a tour of inspection 
to our library. We showed them the little 
there was to see, but tried to convey the 
far reaching field for service open to a 
library in any big corporation or banking 
institution and that the service given 
should not be measured by the extent of 
equipment. 

Through the cooperation of the State 
and County libraries a scheme is being 
tried out whereby the employees of the 
Bank of Italy throughout our 84 branches 
may be put in touch with the best finan- 
cial and economic literature. A list of the 
best books on banking, intended mostly 
for the junior employees, was compiled by 
us, and distributed by Mr Ferguson to all

the fuiinly librarians asking- tlieni to cliock 
those they had and to add to the list any 
suitable substitute. A letter was sent to 
(be jjranch manajjvrs and to every member 
of our staff, advising- them of the scheme 
and asking for their cooperation. 

We are anxious to know whether the 
results will justify the work this has en- 
tailed. It did seem as if this scheme 
might bring a number of young business 
men in touch with their local libraries and 
that coming for professional books they 
might learn of the number of other treas- 
ures that every library holds for those who 
know how to use it.

CONFERENCE OF SOME CO-OPER- 
ATING AGENCIES CONCERNING 
METHODS IN A NUTRITION 
PROGRAM FOR CALIFORNIA. 

Tlie County Libraries' representative 
sat in conference with the Co-operating 
Agencies at Agriculture Hall, June 11, 
1024. 

The purpose of the meeting, as stated 
l>y the chairman, was to become more 
familiar with the plan of work of each 
representative ; to know how it is being 
(lone and to see if opportunity offers to 
correlate the work at any point better 
than it is at present. 

In order to cover the program a short 
talk was given by each organization's 
representative answering three suggested 
questions : 

1. Purpose or goal of the organization 
as regards rural life in California. 

2. In what way it touches nutrition 
Avork. 

3. Facilities of your organization for 
accomplishing this work. 

Contra Costa County was asked to 
demonstrate its progress in nutrition work 
in its different departments, this county 
having been used by the Agricultural 
Department as a demonstration unit for 
nutrition work. Miss Helen Burling, 
Home Demonstration Agent, acted as 
chairman of this discussion. Mrs M. M. 
Garrett, representing the Farm Bureau 
Centers ; Mrs Mabel Tikiob, a project 
leader, and Mrs Alice G. "\^^litbeck, the 



County Librarian, all gave interesting 
notes on nutrition as they saw it. Mrs 
AYhitbeck siK»ke of their library buying 
health posters and books for the use of 
their Home Demonstration Agent and 
County Nurse, an interesting work and 
one that no doubt most of the county 
librarians are doing. 

Some very interesting agencies were 
represented there and all reported on 
their interest and connection with nutri- 
tion work. The American Red Cross was 
reported on by William Carl Hunt, man- 
ager Pacific Division. Avho gave a very 
enlightening talk on their connection with 
nutrition work in California, The Cali- 
fornia Federation of Women's Clubs' 
interest was given by Mrs Sarah Rails- 
back. California Tuberculosis Associa- 
tion's important work was told by Mrs 
Ethel D. Watts, Mrs Grace Stanley, 
Commissioner of Elementary Schools, 
presented the interest of that department 
in nutrition. The State Board of Health 
was represented by Ellen E. Stadtmuller, 
M.D., Director of Child Hygiene. A 
very definite connection with nutrition 
work was presented by her. The State 
Library's facilities and willingness to 
help in this nutrition, as well as every 
other good woik for California, was well 
presented by Helen M, Bruner, Sutro 
Branch of the State Library. The State 
Farm Bureau Federation was represented 
by F. L. Selleck. The Dairy Council 
work was given by S. H. Greene. Mrs 
Hugh Bradford, State President of tho 
Parent-Teachers' Associations, gave a 
very interesting outline of the close con- 
nection of their clubs" interest in nutri- 
tion, especially in the schools. The county 
library's purpose and goal were presented 
by County Librarian Mary Barmby. She 
emphasized the fact that the county libra- 
ries are the channels through which much 
of interest and value is constantly being 
sent to all parts of the state and that if 
county libraries could send cases of bees 
or a skeleton on call they would no doubt 
gladly help to send nutrition in the form 
of books, charts, posters and lists.

County Libraries' Representative.

tional Bank, Vice-Pres., Mr B. E. EM- 
warAs, Standard Oil Company ; Sec- 
Treas., Miss Rose Marie Purcell, Southern 
California Edison Co. ; Executive Commit- 
tee, OflBcers and Mr Guy E. Marion and 
Miss Mary Ramona Bean. 

A letter from Mr Redstone, President of 



the Special Libraries Association, was re- 
ported by Mr Marion, who gave the sub- 
stance of it as concerning the vote of this 
Association on the change of the Consti- 
tution to be acted upon at the Annual 
Meeting of the Special Libraries Associa- 
tion and asking that we request affiliation 
if the change was adopted. This brought 
about much discussion as to the intent of 
the law and how it would affect this 
organization. Miss Scheck moved that 
Mr Marion write for specific information 
on the subject. The motion was carried 
and the following suggestions were made 
as to points to be submitted : Proportion 
of dues to be refunded, what proportion of 
members must pay, how would institu- 
tional membership be handled, if member- 
ship by institutions were taken might it 
not be arranged for more than one to be 
member, etc. 

Committee Reports: Miss Fossler re- 
ported for the Committee on the Union 
List. Miss Fossler said that more assist- 
ance would be needed soon to put lists 
together. She asked for instinictions on 
symbols, etc. Miss O'Toole reiwrted for 
the Membership Committee, in the absence 
of Miss Bean, Chairman. She told of 
letters sent out to the various libraries 
and gave list of names of those becoming 
members. Miss Scheck, Chairman of the 
Methods Committee, reported the trial of 
a plan for each meeting of a short discus- 
sion of methods and spoke of the work 
planned for the committee if we affiliate 
with the Special Libraries Association. 
Mr Marion, chairman of the Directory 
Committee, reported that one meeting had 
been held, a questionnaire prepared which 
would soon be ready for distribution. Miss 
Scheck reported for the Special Commit- 
tee appointed to act at the meeting of the 
California Libraries Association. There 
was no Special Libi-aries Section and the 
failure to have meeting was not the fault 
of Miss Drake, President, as program had 
to be printed before arrangements had 
been made. 

Mr Marion closed his term of office 
with a few words of thanks for co-oi)era- 
tion during his tej."m, introduced the new

officers and gave the meeting into the 
hands of the incoming President, Miss 
Alice Scheck. 

^liss Scheck thanked the members for 
the honor given her and pledged her wil- 



lingness to carry out the wishes of the 
society and serve to the best of her 
ability. 

There being no other business the meet- 
ing was adjourned until fall.

REFERENCE DEPARTMENT. 

Beulah Mumm, in charge. 

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

The questionnaire sent out in May 
dealing with the use of the two copies 
of the reprint of recent accessions 
from Xeics Xotes of California Libraries 
showed conditions that seem worth dis- 
cussion. A few libraries reiwrt that the 
two copies are clipped and mounted 
according to the plan adopted long ago. 
Several libraries report that this is not 
done on account of lack of time — a situa- 
tion easily imagiued. Answers from 
many of the libraries, however, show that 
the purpose of sending out two copies has 
not been understood. 

The plan is that the two copies should 
be clipped and mounted and the items 
filed alphabetically. This would provide 
for each librai-j' an author catalog, with 
call numbers, of the accessions to the 
State Library. Such a file should prove 
useful along many lines. Primarily it 
would save time. In making requests the 
librarian would be saved looking up 
author's full name and injpriut, and the 
State Library would be saved looking up 
the call number. As an aid in book selec- 
tion it should be of value. The positive 
assurance that a certain title is in the 
State Library might often be sufficient 
reason for not purchasing. Since the 
author's full name and the cla.ssification 
number are given, the list would help in 
cataloging and classifying. To the pub- 



lic eye it would Ix' an crt'ectivc deuion- 
stration of cooperation Ijelwccn state and 
local libraries. 

While the reprints of recent accessions 
were first made at the request of some of 
the county librarians, they will gladly 
be sent to any of the city libraries also, 
that care to clip, mount and file them for 
the uses suggested. 

In ^•iew of the fact that the plan in 
regard to recent accession reprints was 
not entirely understood by all librarians 
the State Library has decided to prepare 
a letter to send out to all new county 
librarians upon taking office. The letter 
will attempt to cover in full all the points 
of State Library service. Any sugges- 
tion as to details that .should be included 
in such a letter will be gladly considered.

The California Department aims to 
have a thoroughly good collection of 
books on the li i s t o r y and description, 
resources and indusries of the State, as 
well as the works of California authois 
in all departments of literature. These 
are made accessible by means of a card 
catalog. Full names' and biographical 
sketches of California authors, artists, 
musicians, pioneers and early settlers are 
being secured, together with their photo- 
graphs. The collection of bound peri- 
odicals is quite large. The Department 
also contains about 9000 bound volumes 
of newspapers', a file of which is being 
indexed with reference to the history of 
the State. Students will be assisted in 
their work.

Among the gifts of the last quarter 
have been over a hundred volumes in 
French and a few in English from the 
I'ermanent Blind Relief War Fund, and 
Ihe first few titles of the sixty-eight to 
be donated by the U. S. Veterans' 
Bureau. Both these collections are in- 
tended primarily for blinded war vet- 
erans, but their use is also for blind 
civilians as soon as the demand from 
veterans has been filled. As there are 
but few blinded veterans in California, 
the use of these two fine donations is 
])raetically at once available for all the 
blind of the state.

tion for the Library during the present 
two years home teaching for the blind was 
discontinued by the Liljrary on June 30,

On December 1, 1923, home teaching 
was officially reinstated under the State 
Board of Control. Persons knowing of 



I>ossible pupils may communicate with the 
State Library, or, if in the bay district,

=The income as given does not include balance in fund July 1, 1923. 

'Includes elementary and high. Formerly number of "high schools" was given in county siiperintendents' reports 
instead of number of high school districts. This year both are given but this table includes number of high school districts 
only. This accounts for apparent radical decrease in number of active school districts in some counties. 



[;80 NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. [Oct., 1924 

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES— ANNUAL STATISTICS AND 
QUARTERLY NEWS ITEMS. 



Before Octoiber 1 annual report blanks were sent to all California 
libraries listed. Statistics from these annual reports are printed in 
this issue. Except when otherwise noted, statistics are for the period 
from July 1, 1923, to June 30, 1924. 

According to the plan adopted last year, branch library statistics 
are omitted under the names of the various branches. They are 
included, however, in the general figures given under the main librar3^ 

On account of the above, high school, public and other libraries, 
which are affiliated with a county free library, show, as a rule, statistics 
for their own books only and not for county service. 

The annual statistics are followed hy quarterly news items covering 
the periled July to October, 1924. News items from the annual reports 
are given at the end of the statistics, except those that have already 
been given in quarterly issues. 

In order to keep statistics given herein consistent with figures given 
by the State Department of Elducation, and in order that there may not 
appear to be a great unexplained drop in the number of school districts 
belonging to the county libraries (due to the formation of union dis- 
tricts), we have counted all districts in a union district as separate 
districts in "number of active school districts that have joined county 
libraries." There will in some counties, however, appear to be a 
decrease on account of the fact that high school districts this .year 
represent the exact number of "districts," while in former years the 
County Superintendents' reports have listed number of high schools 
rather than districts. Under County Teachers' Libraries number of 
districts and number of high schools are both given. 

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 
Uie county in which any place is located 
see list following these introductory para- 
graphs. This list includes locations of 
branch libraries, although the branches 
are listed only under the main library. 

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 Jf are Library of Con- 
gress card depositories.. This information 
was rcA-ised in October, 1920. 

When a branch has a reading room, it 
is indicated by r. r. in the list of branches 
under county free library. 

The months after newspaper clippings 
are abbreviated as follows :

In order that the figures for circulation 
may be uniform, current magazines are 
Included iu 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 
classrooms, if ser\ace is given directly to 
each classroom 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. 

There are in California 42 county free 
libraries : 4 library district libraries ; 4 
union high school district libraries ; 13S 
libraries supported by city taxation ; .59 
towns or districts with free public 
libraries that are included in county free 
library service (3.3 under Sec. 3, 2 under 
Sec. 4. 12 under Sec. 16,' 12 under Pol. C. 
Sec. 4041 ) : 08 law libraries, of which 56 
are county law libraries: .58 county 
teachers" lihrai'ies: .378 libraries in edu- 
cational institution.'*, of which 6 are uui- 
xcrsitios, 7 colleges, 7 state teachers col- 
leges, 301 jiublic high schools, 57 private 
schools and other institutions ; 01 mis- 
cellaneous institution libraries : 00 asso- 
ciation or .society libraries and 26 sub- 
scription libraries. In connection with 
the above libraries are 4483 branches 
and deposit stations. 

There are 246 library buildings, of 
which 174 were gifts, and of these gifts 
144 are from Andrew Carnegie. 

As the libraries are listed under coun- 
ties, the following alphabetical list by 
place, giving count.y, is printed. List 
includes places mentioned under County 
Free Libraries as having branches.
