LIBRARY HOURS 

Week days 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Prints 

Room is closed between 1 and 2 p.m. daily. 

The Library closes at noon on Saturday. 

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 

Mrs. Virginia S. Simpson, in charge. 

Embossed books in the various types are 
sent to any blind resident of California 
upon application. Lists of material avail- 
able for loan will be sent on request. 
Writing appliances and games for the 
blind are lent as samples to those wishing 
to buy such articles, so that the different 
kinds can be tried before they are ordered. 
Addresses of firms supplying all articles 
lent will be furnished on request. 

Books sent between blind persons and an 
institution distributing embossed litera- 
ture are carried free through the mails. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type iii 
the Library up to October 1, 1926, and one 
including all books in Braille up to April 
1, 1927, will be sent to anyone requesting 
them. Catalogs of Braille and Moon 
books received through the Library of Con- 
gress Project, Books for the Adult Blind, 
are also available upon request for the 
period 1931-1942. IVetrs Notes, reprinted 
from Neivs Notes of California Lihraries, 
carrying a list of additions to the Library 
each quarter, is sent to each blind reader. 
The State Library will be glad to have 



borx'owers who care to do so write any let- 
ters or requests for books to the Library in 
Braille. 

Attention of the borrower is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside mail 
boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to send 
post card receipts or requests to the Li- 
brary inside of books. When books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up one 
by one. Therefore, a request sent in that 
way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Under the provisions of an Act entitled 
"An act to provide books for the adult 
blind," approved by Congress in 1931, and 
subsequentlv amended, an annual appro- 
priation of $350,000 is authorized, $100,- 
000 for books in raised characters, and 
$250,000 for sound-reproduction records. 

The Library of Congress distributes to 
the various printing houses for the blind 
the assignments of printing books for the 
blind readers of the United States. The 
California State Library has been desig- 
nated as one of the centers to receive the 
books and the talking book records sup- 
plied from these appropriations. Many 
titles have been received and are reported 
currently in the list of books added, with 
the note that they are provided by the 
United States government through the Li- 
brary of Congress. See page 43. 

Since May, 1936, the State Library has 
had the responsibility of assigning 984 
talking book machines in California and 
Nevada to blind persons unable to pur- 
chase such machines for themselves. These 
machines were made as a W. P. A. project 
and are distributed as loans for an indefi- 
nite period. Those persons who are inter- 
ested in borrowing them should write to 
the State Library. They will be sent ap- 
plication blanks in turn as more machines 
are available for distribution. 

A word of explanation regarding the 
various grades of Braille will clarify the 
following accession and circulation figures. 
Prior to 1932 there was only one Braille 
Grade 2 type, which was known as Eui-o- 
pean Braille. Books in the English lan- 
guage printed in this type were published 
only in England. The United States pub- 
lishing houses printed most books for the 
blind in Revised Braille, or Braille Grade 
li. In 1932 the Uniform Type Commis- 
sion, representing all English speaking 
countries, met in New York and agreed to 
adopt Standard English Braille, or Braille 
Grade 2, as the standard type for press- 
Braille books for adults. Standard Eng- 
lish Braille Grade 2 is a modified form of 
European Braille, having 189 contractions. 
There will be no further additions to the 
European Braille collection. 

The first book was lent June 13, 1905. 
Total accessions are now 46,427, as fol- 
lows : European Braille books 2,918 ; 
Moon books 11,-539 ; Braille Grades 1 and 
li books 14,232; Braille Grade 2 books

Home Teaching 

Catharine J. Morrison is home teacher 
for the blind in the southern- part of the 
State. Her home address is 2215 W. 6th 
Street, Los Angeles. Her telephone num- 
ber is FItzroy 3251. She gives lessons 
regularly in Los Angeles and vicinity and 
makes occasional trips to San Diego. 

Mrs. Juliet Bindt, home teacher for the 
northern part of the State, is located in 
Berkeley at 2730 Garber Street, telephone 
THornwall 8680. She gives lessons in the 
San Francisco Bay area and down the 
peninsula, with occasional trips to other 
places. 

From October 1 to December 30, the 
home teachers gave 403 lessons in the 
homes of the blind and 16 lessons in li- 
braries. They made 366 visits and calls 
in connection with the work for purposes 
other than giving lessons. 

During_the quarter Mrs. Bindt and Miss 
Morrison spent 557 hours on correspond- 
ence and preparing lessons. They wrote 
343 letters and 272 postals, and received 
236 letters and 100 postals. They also 
answered and made 702 telephone calls. 
The various other activities in connection 
with the work of the home teachers can not 
easily be tabulated. 

CALIFORNIA SECTION 

Caroline Wenzel, Supervising Librarian. 
The California Section of the State Li- 
brary has a working collection of printed 
and .manuscript sources dealing with the 
history of the State in its many phases. 
This section collects and preserves books, 
manuscripts, maps, periodicals, newspa- 
pers, photographs, and other material 
bearing upon the development of Califor- 
nia. The entire collection is available for 
reference and much of it also circulates. 
The staff of the department, by maintain- 
ing a familiarity with the material in its 
specialized field and by preparing indexes 
and other keys, is able to give expert as- 
sistance to students, authors, librarians, 
and others interested in the State's his- 
tory. 



Among the valuable reference tools in 
the Section is the newspaper card index, 
being chiefly an index to the California 
material in a file of San Francisco newspa- 
pers beginning with 1847, but also contain- 
ing references to the earlier Californian 
(first published in 1846 at Monterey) and 
to portions of a few other files. The index 
card gives a brief reference to the article, 
the name of the paper, the date, page, and 
column. 

An extensive information index is also 
maintained. This index is of great assist- 
ance in locating sketches of California 
persons and places and items of local his- 
torical interest. 

The collection of California newspapers 
now numbers over 17,000 bound volumes, 
and there are numerous files of California 
periodicals. For many years biographical 
information pertaining to California pio- 
neers, authors, artists and musicians has 
been collected, and this now comprises a 
unique source of such data. Other spe- 
cialties are the collection of California fic- 
tion, dramatic material, printed indexes to 
the great registers of voters of the State, 
business papers, and letters and diaries of 
pioneers. 

During the past quarter, 116 catalog, 
1482 information, and 7769 newspaper 
cards have been added to the indexes ; 
30 processed books and pamphlets, 66 
bound volumes of periodicals, and 28 
bound volumes of newspapers have been 
made available in the Section. 146 let- 
ters requiring research, 66 letters regard- 
ing vital statistics, and 40 subject request 
slips were answered. 

Pioneers and Early Settlers 

The following pioneer cards, for persons 
arriving in California before the year 
1860, have been received during the past 
quarter : 

Franklin Bedwell, 1840. 
Thomas Henry Epley, 1859. 
Clovis Augustus LaGrave, 1852. 
William Thomas Martin, 1850. 
David Myers, 1853. 
Stanton Mvers, 18.53. 
Wesley Myers, 1853. 
Robert Tustin Seavey, 1849. 
Joseph Henry Smith, 1850. 
Charles Stanford, 1849. 

CATALOG SECTION 

Olive Swain, Supervising Librarian. 

The work of the Catalog Section con- 
sists of classifying and cataloging the new 
material ' acquired by the Library and 
maintaining the public catalog, the ofiicial 
catalog, the shelf list, and the Union Cata- 
log. The Union Catalog consists of the 
printed cards from the Library of Con- 
gress, cards from various university libra- 
ries (including those of the University of 
California and Stanford University), and 
from the county libraries and various city 
libraries in California. At present, one

member of the Catalog Section has charge 
of the Periodicals Section, which handles 
all newspapers and magazines received by 
the library, recording their receipt, distrib- 
uting theni to the proper sections of the 
library, and collecting them for binding. 
During October, November and Decem- 
ber, 851 books were cataloged and 5846 
cards were added to the file. 14,036 
cards were filed in the Union Catalog. 

CRAFTS AND SHIPPING SECTION 
William H. Lugg, Supervisor. 

Book repair work, photostating and pho- 
tography, the handling of library supplies 
and shipments of books on interlibrary 
loans are all centered in this section. 

GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS 
SECTION 

Evelyn Huston, Supervising Librarian. 

The Government Documents Section 
administers the Library's collection of 
official publications of federal, state, 
county, municipal and foreign govern- 
mental units. Its function is to select, 
acquire, arrange and make available this 
material. 

In accordance with the provisions of 
the state law, distribution of 48 Cali- 
fornia state publications was made to a 
selected list of libraries during October, 
November and December, 1943. 

Under the 1933 law the State Library 
is entitled to receive copies of all munici- 
pal and county publications. Recent ac- 
cessions are listed on pages 35, 40 and 42. 

LAW AND LEGISLATIVE 
REFERENCE SECTION 

Herbert V. Clayton, Supervising Libra- 
rian. 

The Law and Legislative Reference Sec- 
tion is fully equipped with the latest re- 
ports, digests, encyclopedias, and text- 
books, the statutes of other states, the 
United States, Great Britain, Canada, 
Australia and certain other foreign coun- 
ti-ies and briefs of counsel in cases decided 
in the California Supreme and Appellate 
courts. State officers are entitled to bor- 
row books and private individuals are ac- 
corded the same privilege upon presenta- 
tion of a request signed by a Supreme, 
Appellate or Superior Judge, or other 
State officer. All books are subject to re- 
call, if required by a State officer, or if, in 
the opinion of the Librarian, a recall is 
fair and expedient. 

In addition to special service to members 
of the Legislature, information on the laws 
of California and other states and counties 
is given on inquiry from libraries and in- 
dividuals. 

Recent accessions to the Section will be 
found listed under the heading "Law" on 
page 35. 



ORDER SECTION 

Auguste Fruge, Supervising Librarian. 

The Order Section places orders for all 
books, periodicals and other publications 
purchased by the State Library. It also 
receives these materials, accessions them 
and forwards them to the Catalog Section. 

The selection of books for the Library is 
done by the Order Librarian jointly with 
the Reference Librarian. Advice on selec- 
tion is given by other members of the staff, 
particularly in fields relating to their work. 

The policy of the California State Li- 
brary, funds permitting, is to furnish 
needed books to the various state depart- 
ments and to maintain an adequate collec- 
tion of standard and scholarly works in 
nearly all fields. This collection is used to 
fill local requests and to furnish extension 
service through the city and county libra- 
ries of California. It is assumed that the 
smaller libraries will be able to buy fiction 
and light non-fiction to fill the needs of 
their communities. The State Library 
makes an effort to supplement this service 
with the books which many small libraries 
cannot buy. Our purchasing is therefore 
rather closely limited to the more substan- 
tial non-fiction, including technical books 
and scholarly works in all fields except 
medicine. 

During October, November and Decem- 
ber 1897 books and 25 prints were ac- 
cessioned. 



PRINTS SECTION 

Bertha S. Taylor, "Librarian. 

The Prints Section is housed in a spe- 
cially planned and equipped room, in 
which are kept the prints acquired by the 
State Library. In display cases can be 
shown about 50 prints at a time and 
exhibits are constantly maintained. Visi- 
tors are invited. 

Twenty-six prints were cataloged dur- 
ing the quarter, making the total number 
in the collection 412.3. The book-plate 
collection now totals 3086, 23 plates hav- 
ing been added and cataloged during the 
quarter. 

Visitors to the Prints Room during the 
past three months numbered 313. 

The October exhibition was material 
on Soviet Russia loaned by the American 
Russian Institute for Cultural Relations 
in San Francisco. Books on Russian art 
and Russian children's picture books be- 
longing to the library were shown on the 
reading tables in the Prints Room. In 
observance of American Art Week in 
November, prints by American artists 
from the library's collection were shown. 
On November 5, twenty-two members of 
Pro Arts Club and the Art Section of the 
Tuesday Club met in the Prints Room to 
hear a talk by the librarian, who discussed 
the prints being .shown. In December, 
the exhibition was from the Print Makers 
Society of California.

are sent to any blind resident of Cali- 
fornia upon application. Lists of material 



60 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIPOIINIA LIBRAEIES [April, 1944 



available for loan will be sent on re- 
quest. Writing appliances and games for 
the blind are lent as samples to those 
wishing to buy such articles, so that the 
different kinds can be tried before they 
are ordered. Addresses of firms supply- 
ing all articles lent will be furnished on 
request. 

Books sent between blind persons and 
an institution distributing embossed lit- 
erature are carried free through the 
mails. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type 
in the Library up to October 1, 1926, and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone re- 
questing them. Catalogs of Braille and 
Moon books received through the Library 
of Congress Project, Books for the Adult 
Blind, are also available upon request 
for the period 1931-1943. ISIews Notes, 
reprinted from News Notes of California 
Libraries, carrying a list of additions to 
the Library each quarter, is sent to each 
blind reader. The State Library will be 
glad to have borrowers who care to do so 
write any letters or requests for books 
to the Library in Braille. 

Attention of the borrower is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside mail 
boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to send 
post card receipts or requests to the Li- 
brary inside of books. When books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent 
in the mail separately. 

Under the provisions of an Act en- 
titled "An act to provide books for the 
adult blind," approved by Congress in 
1931, and subsequently amended, an an- 
nual appropriation of $350,000 is author- 
ized, $100,000 for books in raised char- 
acters, and $250,000 for sound-reproduc- 
tion records. 

The Library of Congress distributes to 
the various printing houses for the blind 
the assignments of printing books for the 
blind readers of the United States. The 
California State Library has been desig- 
nated as one of the centers to receive the 
books and the talking book records sup- 
plied from these appropriations. Many 
titles have been received and are reported 
currently in the list of books added, with 
the note that they are provided by the 
United States Government through the 
Library of Congress. See page 94. 

Since May, 1936, the State Library has 
had the responsibility of assigning 984 
talking book machines in California and 
Nevada to blind persons unable to pur- 
chase such machines for themselves. 
These machines were made as a WPA 
project and are distributed as loans for 
an indefinite period. Those persons who 
are interested in borrowing them should 
write to the State Library. They will be 



sent application blanks in turn as more 
machines are available for distribution. 

A word of explanation regarding the 
various grades of Braille will clarify the 
following accession and circulation fig- 
ures. Prior to "1932 there was only one 
Braille Grade 2 type, which was known 
as European Braille. Books in the Eng- 
lish language printed in this type were 
published only in England. The United 
States publishing houses printed most 
books for the blind in Revised Braille, or 
Braille Grade li. In 1932 the Uniform 
Type Commission, representing all Eng- 
lish speaking countries, met in New York 
and agreed to adopt Standard English 
Braille, or Braille Grade 2, as the stand- 
ard type for press-Braille books for 
adults. Standard English Braille Grade 
2 is a modified form of European Braille, 
having 189 contractions. There will be 
no further additions to the European 
Braille collection. 

The first book was lent June 13, 1905. 
Total accessions are now 46,555, as fol- 
lows : European Braille books. 2,918 ; 
Moon books, 11,561 ; Braille Grades 1 and 
1* books 14,246; Braille Grade 2 books 
11,738 ; all other types 32 ; Braille books 
about music and BraiUe music scores 
2,389 ; appliances 90 ; games 63 ; maps 40 ; 
talking books (containers) 3,654. There 
are 14,843 magazines available in Moon, 
Braille, and New York Point. 

During January, February and March 
8,337 books, etc., were lent as follows : 
Braille Grades 1 and 1* 903; Braille 
Grade 2 1,412; Moon 1,530; all other 
types 3 (including appliances, games, 
maps); magazines 539; talking books 
(containers) 3,916. 

Home Teaching 

Catharine J. Morrison is home teacher 
for the blind in the southern part of the 
State. Her home address is 2215 W. 6th 
Street, Los Angeles. Her telephone 
number is FItzroy 3251. She gives les- 
sons regularly in Los Angeles and vicin- 
ity and makes occasional trips to San 
Diego. 

Mrs. Juliet Bindt, home teacher for the 
northern part of the State, is located in 
Berkeley at 2730 Garber Street, telephone 
THornwall 8680. She gives lessons in 
the San Francisco Bay area and down 
the peninsula, with occasional trips to 
other places. 

From January 1 to March 31, the home 
teachers gave 457 lessons in the homes 
of the blind and 29 lessons in libraries. 
They made 314 visits and calls in con- 
nection with the work for purposes other 
than giving lessons. 

During the quarter Mrs. Bindt and 
Miss Morrison spent 609 hours on corre- 
spondence and preparing lessons. They 
wrote 357 letters and 374 postals, and 
received 301 letters and 100 postals. They

also answered and made 841 telephone 
calls. The various other activities in con- 
nection with the work of the home teach- 
ers can not easily be tabulated. 



CALIFORNIA SECTION 
Caroline Wenzel, Supervising Librarian. 

The California Section of the State Li- 
brary has a working collection of printed 
and manuscript sources dealing with the 
history of the State in its many phases. 
This section collects and preserves books, 
manuscripts, maps, periodicals, newspa- 
pers, photographs, and other material 
bearing upon the development of Cali- 
fornia. The entire collection is available 
for reference and much of it also circu- 
lates. The staff of the department, by 
maintaining a familiarity with the mate- 
rial in its specialized field and by prepar- 
ing indexes and other keys, is able to give 
expert assistance to students, authors, 
librarians, and others interested in the 
State's history. 

Among the valuable reference tools in 
the Section is the newspaper card index, 
being chiefly an index to the California 
material in a file of San Francisco newspa- 
vpers beginning with 1847, but also contain- 
ing references to the earlier Californian 
(first published in 1846 at Monterey) and 
to portions of a few other files. The index 
card gives a brief reference to the article, 
the name of the paper, the date, page, and 
column. 

An extensive information index is also 
maintained. This index is of great assist- 
ance in locating sketches of California 
persons and places and items of local his- 
torical interest. 

The collection of California newspapers 
now numbers over 17,000 bound volumes, 
and there are numerous files of California 
periodicals. For many years biographical 
information pertaining to California pio- 
neers, authors, artists and musicians has 
been collected, and this now comprises a 
unique source of such data. Other spe- 
cialities are the collection of California fic- 
tion, dramatic material, printed indexes to 
the great registers of voters of the State, 
business papers, and letters and diaries of 
pioneers. 

During the past quarter, 136 catalog, 
1646 information, and 7940 newspaper 
cards have been added to the indexes ; 38 
processed books and pamphlets, 23 bound 
volumes of periodicals, and 15 bound vol- 
umes of newspapers have been made avail- 
able in the Section. 154 letters requiring 
research, 81 letters regarding vital statis- 
tics, and 149 subject request slips were 
answered. 

Pioneers and Early Settlers 

The following pioneer cards, for persons 
arriving in California before the year 



1860, have been received during the past 
quarter : 

Joshua Tatman Bailey, 1852 

Isaac Elphenstone Davis, 1849 

George Osgood Gunn, 1852 

Beverly Kelsey, 1849 

David Stocking Kelsey, 1849 

James M. Palmer, 1849 

Justus Schomp, 1856 

David Jackson Staples, 1849 



CATALOG SECTION 
Olive Swain, Supervising Librarian. 

The work of the Catalog Section con- 
sists of classifying and cataloging the new 
material acquired by the Library and 
maintaining the public catalog, the official 
catalog, the shelf list, and the Union Cata- 
log. The Union Catalog consists of the 
printed cards from the Library of Con- 
gress, cards from various university libra- 
ries (including those of the University of 
California and Stanford University) and 
from the county libraries and various city 
libraries in California. At present, one 
member of the Catalog Section has charge 
of the Periodicals Section, which handles 
all newspapers and magazines received by 
the library, recording their receipt, distrib- 
uting them to the proper sections of the 
library, and collecting them for binding. 

During January, February and March, 
797 books were cataloged and 5605 cards 
were added to the file. 25,583 cards were 
filed in the Union Catalog. 



CRAFTS AND SHIPPING SECTION 
William H. Lugg, Supervisor. 

Book repair work, photostating and pho- 
tography, the handling of library supplies 
and shipments of books on interlibrary 
loans are all centered in this section. 

GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS 
SECTION 

Evelyn Huston, Supervising Librarian. 

The Government Documents Section 
administers the Library's collection of 
official publications of federal, state, 
county, municipal and foreign govern- 
mental units. Its function is to select, 
acquire, arrange and make available this 
material. 

In accordance with the provisions of 
the state law, distribution of 74 Cali- 
fornia state publications was made to a 
selected list of libraries during January, 
February and March, 1944. 

Under the 1933 law the State Library 
is entitled to receive copies of all munici- 
pal and county publications. Recent ac- 
cessions are listed on x>af^e 86.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES [April, 1944 



LAW AND LEGISLATIVE 
REFERENCE SECTION 

Herbert V. Clayton, Supervising Libra- 
rian. 

The Law and Legislative Reference 
Section is fully equipped with the latest 
reports, digests, encyclopedias, and text- 
books, the statutes of other states, the 
United States, Great Britain, Canada, 
Australia and certain other foreign coun- 
tries and briefs of counsel in cases decided 
in the California Supreme and Appellate 
courts. State officers are entitled to bor- 
row books and private individuals are ac- 
corded the same privilege upon presenta- 
tion of a request signed by a Supreme, 
Appellate or Superior Judge, or other 
State officer. All books are subject to re- 
call, if required by a State ofiicer, or if, in 
the opinion of the Librarian, a recall is 
fair and expedient. 

In addition to special service to mem- 
bers of the Legislature, information on 
the laws of California and other states and 
counties is given on inquiry from libraries 
and individuals. 

Recent accessions to the Section will be 
found listed under the heading "Law" on 
page 85. 

ORDER SECTION 
Auguste Fruge, Supervising Librarian. 

The Order Section places orders for all 
books, periodicals and other publications 
purchased by the State Library. It also 
receives these materials, accessions them 
and forwards them to the Catalog Section. 

The selection of books for the Library is 
done by the Order Librarian jointly with 
the Reference Librarian. Advice on selec- 
tion is given by other members of the staff, 
particularly in fields relating to their work. 

The policy of the California State Li- 
brary, funds permitting, is to furnish 
needed books to the various state depart- 
ments and to maintain an adequate collec- 
tion of standard and scholarly works in 
nearly all fields. This collection is used to 
fill local requests and to furnish extension 
service through the city and county libra- 
ries of California. It is assumed that the 
smaller libraries will be able to buy fiction 
and light non-fiction to fill the needs of 
their communities. The State Library 
makes an effort to supplement this service 
with the books which many small libraries 
cannot buy. Our purchasing is therefore 
rather closely limited to the more substan- 
tial non-fiction, including technical books 
and scholarly works in all fields except 
medicine. 

During January, February and March, 
1400 books and 15 prints were accessioned. 

PRINTS SECTION 

Bertha S. Taylor, Librarian. 

The Prints Section is housed in a si)e- 
cially planned and equipped room, in 
which are kept the prints acquired by the 



State Library. In display cases can be 
shown about 50 prints at a time and 
exhibits are constantly maintained. Visi- 
tors are invited. 

Fifteen prints were cataloged during 
the quarter, making the total number in 
the collection 4138. The book plate collec- 
tion now totals 3128, 42 plates having 
been added and cataloged during the quar- 
ter. 

Visitors to the Prints Room during the 
past three months numbered 308. 

The annual exhibition of the California 
Society of Etchers scheduled for January 
was continued through February and 
March. 

REFERENCE SECTION 
Beulah Mumm, Supervising Librarian. 

The Reference Section has the responsi- 
bility for circulation of books and maga- 
zines, except those borrowed from the Law 
and Legislative Reference Section and 
from the Books for the Blind Section. It 
also handles all requests for books and 
information except those referred to the 
specialized departments of the Library. 

All the general reference books are 
shelved in James L. Gillis Hall, the main 
reading room of the Reference section. 

The policy of the State Library is to 
lend books through other libraries where 
possible. Individuals in communities 
without local library service may borrow 
directly upon making arrangements with 
the State Library. 

With the thought that military maga- 
zines are an up-to-date, authentic source 
of information in regard to the war, the 
Library has subscribed to the following 
titles : 

Army Ordnance 
Cavalry Journal 
Coast Artillery Journal 
Field Artillery Journal 
Infantry Journal 
Military Affairs 
Military Engineer 
Military Review 
Quartermaster Review 
Royal United Service Institu- 
tion, London, Journal 
United States Naval Institute, 
Annapolis, Md., Proceedings 

SUTRO BRANCH 

Helen M. Bruner, Supervising Librarian. 

The Sutro Branch occupies space in the 
Public Library, Civic Center, San Fran- 
cisco, and is open every day, except Sun- 
day, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

STATISTICS 

A list of California libi-ai-ies is pub- 
lished in the annual statistics number of

books, pamphlets and periodicals from

sent to any blind resident of California 



39, no. 3] 



CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY

upon application. Lists of material avail- 
able for loan will be sent on request. 
Writing appliances and games for the 
blind are lent as samples to those wishing 
to buy such articles, so that the different 
kinds can be tried before they are ordered. 
Addresses of firms supplying all articles 
lent will be furnished on request. 

Books sent between blind persons and an 
institution distributing embossed litera- 
ture are carried free through the mails. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library up to October 1, 1926, and one 
including all books in Braille up to April 
1, 1927, will be sent to anyone requesting 
them. Catalogs of Braille and Moon 
books received through the Library of Con- 
gress Project, Books for the Adult Blind, 
are also available upon request for the 
period 1931-1943. Neics Notes, reprinted 
from News Notes of California Libraries, 
carrying a list of additions to the Library 
each quarter, is sent to each blind reader. 
^The State Library will be glad to have 
iborrowers who care to do so write any let- 
fters or requests for books to the Library in 
Braille. 

Attention of the borrower is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
lirary should always be placed inside mail 
liuxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to send 
pi)8t card receipts or requests to the Li- 
l)rary inside of books. When books ai-e 
returned they often go out very ouicklj' 
again and the pages are not opened up one 
l)y one. Therefore, a request sent in that 
way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should' be sent in 
(he mail separately. 

Under the provisions of an Act entitled 
f"An act to provide books for the adult 
iblind," approved by Congress in 1931, and 
isubsequentlv amended, an annual appro- 
[priation of '$500,000 is authorized, $100,- 
iOOO for books in raised characters, and 
[$400,000 for sound-reproduction records. 
The Library of Congress distributes to 
the various pi-inting houses for the blind 
the assignments of printing books for the 
blind readers of the United States. The 
California State Library has been desig- 
nated as one of the centers to receive the 
books and the talking book records sup- 
plied from these appropriations. Many 
titles have been received and are reported 
currently in the list of books added, with 
the note that they are provided by the 
United States government through the Li- 
brary of Congress. See page 147. 

Since May, 1936, the State Library has 
had the responsibility of assigning 984 talk- 
ing book machines in California and Ne- 
vada to blind persons unable to purchase 
such machines for themselves. These ma- 
chines were made as a W. P. A. project 
and are distributed as loans for an indefi- 
nite period. Those persons who are inter- 
sested in borrowing them should write to 
the State Library. They will be sent ap- 
plication blanks in turn as more machines 
are available for distribution. 

A word of explanation regarding the 
various grades of Braille will clarify the 



following accession and circulation figures. 
Prior to 1932 there was only one Braille 
Grade 2 type, which was known as Euro- 
pean Braille. Books in the English lan- 
guage printed in this type were published 
only in England. The United States pub- 
lishing houses printed most books for the 
blind in Revised Braille, or Braille Grade 
11. In 1932 the Uniform Type Commis- 
sion, representing all English speaking 
countries, met in New York and agreed to 
adopt Standard English Braille, or Braille 
Grade 2, as the standard type for press- 
Braille books for adults. Standard Eng- 
lish Braille Grade 2 is a modified form of 
European Braille, having 189 contractions. 
There will be no further additions to the 
P^uropean Braille collection. 

The first book was lent June 13, 1905. 
Total accessions are now 47,119, as fol- 
lows : European Braille books 2,929 ; 
Moon books 11,595 ; Braille Grade 1 and 
li books 14,312; Braille Grade 2 books 
11,899 ; all other types 32 ; Braille books 
about music and Braille music scores 
2,389 ; appliances 90 ; games 63 ; maps 40 ; 
talking books (containers) 3,770. There 
are 15,241 magazines available in Moon, 
Braille, and New York Point. 

During April, May and June 8,732 
books, etc., were lent as follows : Braille 
Grades 1 and 1* 995; Braille Grade 2 
1,723 ; Moon 1,647 ; magazines 549 ; talk- 
ing books (containers) 3,850. 

Home Teaching 

Catharine J. Morrison is home teacher 
for the blind in the southern part of the 
State. Her home address is 2215 W. 6th 
Street, Los Angeles 5. Her telephone 
number is FItzroy 3251. She gives les- 
sons regularly in Los Angeles and vicinity 
and makes occasional trips to San Diego. 

Mrs. Juliet Bindt, home teacher for the 
northern part of the State, is located at 
2730 Garber Street, Berkeley 5. Her tele- 
phone number is THornwall 8680. She 
gives lessons in the San Francisco Bay 
area and down the peninsula, with occa- 
sional trips to other places. 

From April 1 to June 30, the home 
teachers gave 463 lessons in the homes of 
the blind and 40 lessons in libraries. They 
made 430 visits and calls in connection 
with the work for purposes other than 
giving lessons. 

During the quarter Mrs. Bindt and Miss 
Morrison spent 576 hours on correspond- 
ence and preparing lessons. They wrote 
286 letters and 337 postals, and received 
267 letters and 114 postals. They also 
answered and made 680 telephone calls. 
The various other activities in connection 
with the work of the home teachers can not 
easily be tabulated. 

CALIFORNIA SECTION 

Caroline Wenzel, Supervising Librarian.

brary has a working collection of printed 
and manuscript sources dealing with the 
history of the State in its many phases.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



[July, 1944 



This section collects and preserves books, 
manuscripts, maps, periodicals, newspa- 
pers, photographs, and other material 
bearing- upon the development of Cali- 
fornia. The entire collection is availal;le 
for reference and much of it also circu- 
lates. The staff of the department, bj^ 
maintaining a familiarity with the mate- 
rial in its specialized field and by prepar- 
ing indexes and other keys, is able to give 
expert assistance to students, authors, 
librarians, and others interested in the 
State's history. 

Among the valuable reference tools in 
the Section is the newspaper card index, 
l)eing chiefly an index to the California 
material in a file of San Francisco newspa- 
pers beginning with 1847, but also contain- 
ing references to the earlier Californian 
(first published in 1846 at Monterey) and 
to portions of a few other files. The index 
card gives a brief reference to the article, 
the name of the paper, the date, page, and 
column. 

An extensive information index is also 
maintained. This index is of great assist- 
ance in locating sketches of California 
persons and places and items of local his- 
torical interest. 

The collection of California newspapers 
now numbers over 17,000 bound volumes, 
and there are numerous files of California 
periodicals. For many years biographical 
information pertaining to California pio- 
neers, authors, artists and musicians has 
been collected, and this now comprises a 
unique source of such data. Other special- 
ties are the collection of California fic- 
tion, dramatic material, printed indexes to 
the great registers of voters of the State, 
business papers, and letters and diaries of 
pioneers. 

During the past quarter, 406 catalog, 
1240 information, and 5659 newspaper 
cards have been added to the indexes ; 63 
processed books and pamphlets, 58 bound 
volumes of periodicals, and 402 bound 
volumes of newspapers have been made 
available in the Section. 193 letters re- 
quiring research, 71 letters regarding 
vital statistics, and 64 subject request 
slips were answered. 



Pioneers and Early Settlers 

The following pioneer cards, for persons 
arriving in California before the year 
1860, have been received during the past 
quarter : 

Lucius Billings, 1849

CATALOG SECTION 

Olive Swain, Supervising Librarian. 

The work of the Catalog Section con- 
sists of classifying and cataloging the new 
material acquired by the Library and 
maintaining the public catalog, the ofiicial 
catalog, the shelf list, and the Union Cata- 
log. The Union Catalog consists of the 
printed cards from the Library of Con- 
gress, cards from various university libra- 
ries (including those of the University of 
California and Stanford University) and 
from the county libraries and various city 
libraries in California. At present, one 
member of the Catalog Section has charge 
of the" Periodicals Section, which handles 
all newspapers and magazines received by 
the library, recording their receipt, distrib- 
uting them to the proper sections of the 
library, and collecting them for binding. 

During April, May and June, 1114 books 
were catalogued and 6855 cards were 
added to the file. 12,671 cards were filed 
in the Union Catalog. 

CRAFTS AND SHIPPING SECTION 
William H. Lugg, Supervisor. 

Book repair work, photostating and pho- 
tography, the handling of library supplies 
and shipments of books on interlibrary 
loans are all centered in this section. 



GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS 
SECTION 

Evelyn Huston, Supervising Librarian. 

The Government Documents Section 
administers the Library's collection of 
official publications of federal, state, 
county, municipal and foreign govern- 
mental units. Its function is to select, 
acquire, arrange and make available this 
material. 

In accordance with the provisions of 
the state law, distribution of 46 Cali- 
fornia state publications was made to a 
selected list of libraries during April, May 
and June, 1944. 

Under the 1933 law the State Library 
is entitled to receive copies of all munici- 
pal and county publications. Recent ac- 
cessions are listed on page 139. 

LAW AND LEGISLATIVE 
REFERENCE SECTION 

Herbert V. Clayton, Supervising Librar- 
ian. 

The Law and Legislative Reference 
Section is fully equipped with the latest 
reports, digests, encyclopedias, and text- 
books, the statutes of other states, the 
United States, Great Britain, Canada, 
Australia and certain other foreign coun- 
tries and briefs of counsel in cases decided 
in the California Supreme and Appellate 
courts. State officers are entitled to bor- 
row books and private individuals are ac- 
corded the same privilege upon presenta- 
tion of a request signed by a Supreme, 



vol. 39, no. 3] 



CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY

I Appellate or Superior Judge, or other 
I State officer. All books are subject to re- 
call, if required by a State officer, or if, in 
the opinion of the Librarian, a recall is 
fair and expedient. 

In addition to special service to mem- 
bers of the Legislature, information on 
I the laws of California and other states and 
I counties is given on inquirj' from libraries 
I and individuals. 

Recent accessions to the Section will be 
found listed under the heading "Law" on 
page 1.37. 

ORDER SECTION 

Auguste Fruge, Supervising Librarian. 

The Order Section places orders for all 
hooks, periodicals and other publications 
purchased by the State Library. It also 
receives these materials, accessions them 
and forwards them to the Catalog Section. 
The selection of books for the Library is 
done by the Order Librarian jointly with 
the Reference Librarian. Advice on selec- 
tion is given by other members of the staff, 
particularly in fields relating to their work. 
The policy of the California State Li- 
lirary, funds permitting, is to furnish 
needed books to the various state depart- 
ments and to maintain an adequate collec- 
tion of standard and scholarly works in 
nearly all fields. This collection is used to 

' fill local requests and to furnish extension 
service through the city and county li- 

1 braries of California. It is assumed that 
the smaller libraries will be able to buy 
fiction and light non-fiction to fill the 
needs of their communities. The State 
Library makes an effort to supplement this 
service with the books which many small 
libraries can not buy. Our purchasing is 
therefore rather closely limited to the more 

j substantial non-fiction, including technical 
books and scholarly works in all fields ex- 

j cept medicine. 

During April, May and June, 1979 books 
and 1 print were accessioned. 

PRINTS SECTION 

Bertha S. Taylor, Librarian. 

The Prints Section is housed in a spe- 
cially planned and equipped room, in 
which are kept the prints acquired by the 
State Library. In display cases can be 
shown about 50 prints at a time and 
; exhibits are constantly maintained. Visi- 
' tors are invited. 

No prints were cataloged during the 

quarter, so the total number in the col- 

, lection remains 4138. The book plate 

j collection now totals 3142, 14 plates having 

been added and cataloged during the quar- 

ter. 

j Visitors to the Prints Room during the 
'past three months numbered 506. 

The sixth annual exhibition of the Sierra 
Camera Club was held in April. On the 
j 25th of that month the Prints Room was 
I opened in the evening for the benefit of 
j the Club members, 71 of whom were in 
attendance. During May and June water- 
colors of California wild flowers by Cor- 



nelia Cunningham were selected from the 
Library's collection and shown in the ex- 
hibit cases. 

REFERENCE SECTION 

Beulah Mumm, Supervising Librarian. 

The Reference Section has the responsi- 
bility for circulation of books and maga- 
zines, except those borrowed from the Law 
and Legislative Reference Section and 
from the Books for the Blind Section. It 
also handles all requests for books and 
information except those referred to the 
specialized departments of the Library. 

All the general reference books are 
shelved in James L. Gillis Hall, the main 
reading room of the Reference section. 

The policy of the State Library is to 
lend books through other libraries where 
possible. Individuals in communities 
without local library service may borrow 
directly upon making arrangements with 
the State Library. 

On June 15 an exhibition of "Old Maps 
of Modern War Fronts" replaced the dis- 
play of books on China in the cases in the 
main reading room. Material shown in 
each exhibit came from the Library's own 
collection. 

SUTRO BRANCH 
Helen M. Bruner, Supervising Librarian. 

The Sutro Branch occupies space in the 
Public Library, Civic Center, San Fran- 
cisco, and is open every day, except Sun- 
day, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

EMPLOYMENT REGISTRATION 

The State Library registers all library 
workers in California who are looking for 
positions and who wish to receive such as- 
sistance as this registration can supply. 

The State Library 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, es- 
pecially in regard to time positions must be 
filled and salary offered. 

A librarian who wishes to be dropped 
from the Employment Registration list 
and a library that fills a position for 
which it has asked a recommendation will 
help the work greatly by notifying the 
State Library at once. 

For further information, write to the 
State Library, Sacramento 9, California.

cerning these positions may be obtained

vol. 39, no. 4] California libraries — annual statistics 157 



CALIFORNIA LIBRAEIES— ANNUAL STATISTICS 



Annual report blanks were sent in June to all California libraries 
except elementarj^ public school and church libraries and those which 
belong to private individuals and are not open to the public. Except 
when otherwise noted, statistics from the public library annual reports 
cover the period from July 1, 1943, to June 30, 1944. The school year 
1943-44 is used as the time basis for school library reports. All reports 
are arranged under city and county by name of library, and counties 
are arranged alphabetically. To determine the county in which any 
place is located see the place index, page 160, which includes locations 
of branch and station libraries that are listed elsewhere only under the 
main library. For arrangements of libraries by subject or type refer 
to the annual Index Supplement to News Notes of California Libraries. 

The Public Library Statistical Report, a standard form for gather- 
ing statistics on city, county and district libraries throughout the United 
States, is at present out of print. This year, therefore, we have dis- 
tributed mimeographed forms based on that standard report, along with 
supplementary sheets, to gather more detailed statistics on library con- 
ditions peculiar to California,'particularly of the significant service given 
by county libraries to schools. Special forms on postal cards were again 
used for annual reports from all other types of libraries. 

Problems in regard to the collecting of library statistics center 
chiefly on three objects : currency of news, accuracy of information, and 
uniformity in methods of calculating totals. For accomplishment of these 
objects, directories, professional journals and printed items about Cali- 
fornia libraries (as gathered by a newspaper clipping agency) are 
checked constantly for facts in addition to those reported directly to the 
State Library each year by librarians. Chief librarians listed under 
names of libraries are those most recently reported in office up to the 
time of publishing these statistics. 

In order that libraries will compile the totals they report in a 
uniform manner, the following requirements and definitions have been 
applied : 



The assessed valuation as given for each 
county does not include the value of in- 
\ tangible property, a third of the tax on 
I which goes to the county. Figures for 
) assessed valuation are based on the annual 
f statement No. 16, California State Con- 
i troller's Dept. 

I Population statistics are given for coun- 
j ties and for ail towns having municipal 
(libraries. Federal government population 
j figures as of Apx-il 1, 1940 have been used. 

i Covnty law lilraries are all supported 
i by income received from the $1.00 fee for 
I filing papers in civil suits, so this informa- 
ii tion is not stated with statistics for each 
j of them. 

I For the purpose of this publication, a 

j municipal or city free library is one which 

has been legally established by city ofR- 

/cials, is supported by income from taxa- 



tion or other public funds, and has its own 
trustees or other civil governing body. 

An agency is any place, such as a cen- 
tral library, branch, station, or book auto- 
mobile station, that, as an integral part of 
the public library system, distributes books 
or otherwise renders library service to the 
public. 

The total numher of distributing agen- 
cies of a public library includes the cen- 
tral library as well as its branches and 
stations. To avoid duplication in count, 
then, the central office of a county library 
is neither counted nor listed as a separate 
community branch or station, regardless 
of the type of service it gives to the com- 
munity in which it is located. 

A branch is an auxiliary library with 
separate quarters, a permanent basic col- 
lection of books, a permanent staff, and a 



158 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



[Oct., 1944 



regular schedule. It must meet all of these 
requirements. 

A station is a place from which books 
are distributed, but at which there is no 
permanent collection or library staff. 

A school which is served by a public 
library and has not a central library room 
meeting the conditions of a branch is a 
school station. It is counted just as one 
agency even though the books may be 
divided into a number of class-room col- 
lections. 

While the uniform report blank has 
centered interest on housing of agencies, 
this State Library is interested in type of 
service given in agencies (e.g. school and 
community). For our purpose a branch 
housed in a school but giving service 
entirely to the community is something 
very different from a school agency affili- 
ated for school service. The first is counted 
as a community agency, the second as a 
school agency. 

A school branch or station which gives 
some comDiunity service is designated by 
(c) following the name of such distribut- 
ing agency of the county library. A com- 
munity branch or station which is merely 
located in a school building and not con- 
nected otherwise with the school library 
service is listed only as a community 
agency. 

Municipal, district and high school li- 
hraries which have affiliated with a county 
library for service are counted in total 
number of distributing agencies of that 
county library although listed sepai-ately 
from both its branches and stations. 

Branch library statistics are omitted 
under the names of various branches. 
They are included, however, in the gen- 
eral figures given under the central library. 
For this reason, circulation and other 
statistics for their own books only and 
not for county service are shown, as a rule, 
by high school, municipal and other libra- 
ries which are affiliated with a county free 
library. 

Total circulation is the count of books, 
pamphlets and periodicals lent for home 
use, from the central library or any 
agency, and the count of each renewal. A 
county library includes in its total circu- 
lation the count of supplementary books 
lent from schools for home use, but not 
those used in class rooms onlj-. It also 
includes the circulation of county library 
books from all its agencies (including 
affiliated libraries, which should not in- 
clude such count in their own annual 
report totals) . 

Inter-lihrary loans between libraries 
which are an integral part of the same 
system (branches, stations and affiliated 
libraries) are not counted in total circu- 
lation, but rather in shipments from a 
central library. State Library books bor- 
rowed are included in count of inter- 
library loans and also in circulation of the 
borrowing library. 



A shipment from the central library is 
the lot of items sent to one agency at one 
time. One shipment might be two pack- 
ages or a dozen, and is really a count of the 
times books and other material have been 
sent to branches and stations. The total 
items shipped would be a count of the indi- 
vidual books or articles in the packages 
sent. 

We consider a special request to be a 
request emanating from an individual bor- 
rower, for the central library to supply, 
through its branch or station, a specific 
book or material on one subject. In this re- 
gard community service only is considered, 
because practically all school requests 
seem to be special requests. A requesr 
from a custodian or borrower for "more 
detective stories" would not count as a 
special request. The count is to be made 
of actual number of requests received at 
the central library, because all the re- 
quests forwarded are worked over by the 
headquarters staff even if they can not all 
be filled. (Items sent to agencies in re- 
sponse to requests are counted under ship- 
ments.) 

Janitors and building force, as well as 
untrained custodians of community 
branches and stations (of whom some are 
unpaid), are included in the total count 
of employees. 

Affiliated libraries: 

Free public libraries in 55 towns or
