^ LEGISLATION FOR THE INCORPORATION OF LIBRARY ASSOCIATIONS, 

SOCIETIES, ETC. 

The library, like OTory other institution of organized society, is dependent upon 

legislation for its existence and development. The progress of library development 

^ at lirst was very slow. It has grown from very small beginnings. It is an outgrovrth 

I of a demand of the people. In the beginning, the existence of the library was rocog- 

:^ nized by legislation. In the next place, the preservation of the library was a special 

object of legislation. As an exami)le, the library of the Rev. Thomas Bray, D. D., 

founder of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, may be 

) mentioned. The legislative assembly of South Carolina, on November 16, 1700, passed 

'^ an act in behalf of this library. In 1715 North Carolina passed a similar law for the 

preservation of a library sent over by Dr. Thomas Bray to the town of Bath, for the 

^ nse of the inhabitants of the parish of St. Thomas in Pamlico. 

• In 1731 a movement began which resulted in the formation of the Philadelphia 

V Library Company, called '^ the mother of all North American subscription libraries.'' 
This company was incorporated in 1742, some ten years after its organization. In 
1741 the Charleston, S. C, Library Company was organized, but did not receive its 
charter of incorporation until 1755. 
r From 1776 to 1826 many libraries were established which, though city institutions 

or otherwise limited, were in a general way important factors in the library move- 
■* meut, and were necessary and logical steps toward the free public library. The 
J. earliest legislation regarding libraries took the form of general laws which provided 
N for the incorporation of cooperative library associations, generally known as proprie- 
^ tary, social, subscriiition, or oven public libraries. There is now in a number of the 
States a general law providing for the incorporation of such libraries, namely : Col- 
orado, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Massa- 
chusetts, Mississipin, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, 
Wisconsin, and there may l)e some others in which similar provisions prevail. 

These libraries were intended to be free, and in fact many of them were substan- 
tially free public libraries. They were not supported by public taxation. As another 
evidence of the interest that the i)eo])le manifested in this movement, libraries of a 
certain size were exempted from taxation. This is an indirect though often an effi- 
cient way of legislating for libraries. The libraries of associations, societies, or 
corporations, together with the buildings owned by such associations, are exempt 
from taxation in the following States : Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, 
Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, 
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, and 
Wyoming— in all twenty-two. The increased interest in the subject is still further 
shown by legislative enactment in the following States: District of Columbia, 
Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts. New Jersey, West Virginia, Wisconsin, by Avhich 
private libraries of a certain value are exempt from attachment as well as from tax- 
ation. Many libraries began under such encouragement.

n. 

(a) DISTRICT LIBRARIES. 

In tliis chapter it is proposed to discuss mamly the dovelopment of legislation 
regarding school district libraries. Governor DeWitt Clinton, of New York, in liis 
message to the legislature in 1826, made a recommendation for the establishment of 
district libraries. In 1835 a law was passed by the legislature of that IState estab- 
lishing school district libraries. These are not to bo understood as libraries for the 
schools, but for the people in the districts corresponding generally in areas with the 
school districts. In each district the voters were authorized to levy a tax amount- 
ing to the sum of $20 with which to start a library, and $10 annually thereafter for 
the support of the same. 

In 1838 a law was passed appropriating the sum of $55,000 annually from the 
income of the United States deposit fund. This fund at tlie expiration of three 
years might bo used for the purchase of books, or for the payment of teachers' sala- 
ries, if the district so decided. In 1843 a special library fund was granted by law 
to the school districts for the purchase of school apparatus and the payment of 
teachers under certain conditions. 

These school-district libraries increased in number until 1853, when they con- 
tained an aggregate of 1,601,210 volumes. This, says one writer, *' was the high- 
water mark," for, according to the report of the State superintendent of public 
instruction for 1895, there was a general decrease until 1884, when the number oi 
Yolumes reported in these libraries was only 701,437. From 1885 to 1891 there 
appears to have been a gradual improvement. From 1853 to 1894 the State expended 
on district libraries alone the sum of $1,706,144.36. 

The example of New York was followed by a number of other States, whicli also 
passed laws for the establishment of school-district libraries. Among these States 
were Massachusetts and Michigan in 1837, Connecticut in 1839, Iowa and Rhode 
Island in 1840, Indiana in 1841, Maine in 1844, Ohio in 1847, Wisconsin in 1818, Oregon 
in 1854, Kansas and Virginia in 1870, New Jersey in 1871, Minnesota and Kentucky 
in 1873, Colorado in 1876. This system did not prove a success in all of these States ; 
in fact it did not prove an entire success in any of them, for the coucurreut testi- 
mony from all is that the scheme was a failure. The want of success is attributed 
to various reasons. First, because the unit (the district) was too small; secoud, the 
amount of money annually raised in each district was insufficient; tliird, the number 
of volumes in each was too small to secure anything like public interest in the care, 
preservation, or circulation of the books. 

Out of the failure of this system the States which enacted laws for the encourage- 
ment of the school-district libraries learned from experience that additional legis- 
lation was necessary. Hence many of the States subsequently i>assed statutes 
providing for township libraries. That is, the town was made the unit, and local 
taxation became the means of support, in whole or in part, for these libraries. 

(&) TOWNSHIP LIBRARIES. 

The Massachusetts general court in 1848 passed an act authorizing the city of Bos- 
ton to levy a tax of $5,000 for the establishment of a free public library. This was 
a special act affecting only Boston, but it was the initial step. In 1851 this act was 
made to apply to all the towns and cities in the State. The act of 1848 for Boston 
is really the germ out of which has grown much of the library legislation in this 
as Avell as other countries. Mr. Fletcher, in hie ''Public libraries in America," says : 

"The first step in the movement for establishing public libraries * * ^ scnis 
to have been tftken by the Hon. Josiah Quincy, jr., mayor of Boston, in October, 
1847. He proposed to the city council, and they passed, a request to the legislature 
that Boston be allowed to lay a tax to establish a free library. The legislature 
assented the same winter, and this was probably the beginning of such legislation 
in any part of the world. In 1851, other cities and towns claiming the same permis- 
sion, the law was made general. The interest in libraries excited throughout England 
by the parliamentary investigation ^ already referred to (of which I shall say more 
presently), was perhaps the immediate cause of similar legislation in that country, 
but the leaders of the movement there confessed that the idea came to them from 
America." 

New Hampshire, on July 7, 1849, passed a general law for free public libraries in all 
the towns of the State. It was the first law of its kind known in the history of 
library legislation. There is an interesting feature connected with library legislation 
'in this State which it is well enough to mention. The town of Peterboro, in 1833, 



* In 1847 a parliamentary commission was appointed ; in 1850 commission made a report* 



LIBBABY LEGISLATION IN THE UNITED STATES. 525 

establislied a free public libraxy wbich ia still in existence. This library was main- 
tamed for many years in whole or in part by municipal authority, and is entitled to 
the credit of being one of the first, if not the first, public library in the United States 
supported by public taxation. Under date of August 7, 1875, the Commissioner of 
Education at Washington, D. C, wrote in a letter to the late Prof. Albert Smith, of 
this town : 

"The first free public libraiy supported or aided by taxation of which this Bureau 
has any account was established at Wayland, Mass., and was opened to the public in 
August, 1850. The second, at New Bedford, Mass., was opened in March, 1853. If 
the Peterboro town library was free to the inhabitants of the town prior to August, 
1850, whether supported by municipal taxation or by the income of invested bonds, 
it furnishes the first example of a free library, and we shall bo glad to give it the 
credit," In another letter, of August 12, 1875: *^So far as any data are at present 
known to us, your library is the earliest of its kind. Should we obt^iin information 
of an earlier enterprise of the same kind, you will be duly informed." 

(c) FREE PUBLIC LIBRARIES SUPPORTED BY THE STATE. 

The legislation in New Hampshire and Massachusetts had the effect of stimulating 
the movement in other States, and general library laws were passed as follows : 

Maine adopted a general library law in 1854; Vermont in 1865; Ohio in 1867; 
Colorado, Illinois, New York, and Wisconsin in 1872; Indiana and Iowa in 1873; 
Texas in 1874; Connecticut and Rhode Island in 1875; Michigan in 1876; Nebraska 
in 1877; California, Minnesota, and New Jersey in 1879; Montana in 1883; New 
Mexico in 1884 ; Missouri in 1885 ; Kansas and Wyoming in 1886 ; North and South 
Dakota and Pennsylvania in 1887; Washington in 1890, and Mississippi (embodied 
in a municipal law) in 1892. 

In the District of Columbia,' Delaware, Kentucky, Nevada, North and South Caro- 
lina, and Oregon there has been no general library legislation. Provision is made by 
the Government for State libraries in the Territories. These libraries are for the use 
of the legislatures and the courts. In Kentucky general library legislation is now 
pending. 

It may not be out of place here to call attention to the, subject of school libraries. 
Two States are selected, and the legislation from these may be taken as typical of 
legislation with regard to this subject in other States. The provision invariably 
takes one of two forms, namely : 

1. Permission is given to the school district (almost always our local educational 
unit) to tax itself for the purpose of securing a school library, or 

2. The fund which is created by the State may be distributed to districts that have 
secured a certain number of books, or have taxed themselves to procure such books. 

It will be observed that there are some general principles upon which the States 
have encouraged the formation of school libraries, but there have been different 
methods of operating them to secure the object for which they were founded. For 
instance, the two adjoining States of Michigan and Wisconsin deal with the subject 
in a somewhat different way. 

In Michigan a ** township library shall bo maintained in each organized township, 
which shall be the property of the township, but be in charge of the township board 
of school inspectors." But then it is added that " any school district by a two- thirds 
vote at any annual meeting may establish a district library, which shall be entitled 
to its just proportion of books from the library of any township in which it is situ- 
ated, and also to its equitable share of any library moneys remaining unexpended 
in such township at the time of the establishment of such district library, or shall 
afterwards be raised by tax or apportionment." 

In Wisconsin **the treasurer of each town (not township) may withhold annually 
from the money secured from the State school fund for the several school districts 
an amount equal to 10 cents for each person of school age residing in the town for 
the purchase of books for a school library.'' Under this law more than one-half of 
the districts in Wisconsin have been supplied with helpful libraries. *• Year by 
year," quoting the State superintendent, *'as teachers and pupils learn to use these 
libraries to better advantage, they are becoming of greater value as educational 
agencies." 

The States which passed these laws evidently recognized the principle that lies at 
the foundation of all legislation for free public libraries, that the library is and 
should be an essential part of the system of public education of the State, and, as 
such, should be maintained by public taxation; that it is the duty of the State to 
educate its citizens, and for that purpose public schools should be maintained. The 
public laws of many of the States had already recognized this principle. Here we 
see clearly set forth that the public library should complement the public school and 
be maintained in the same way as the public school. 

1 Since the above waa written Congress has passed a general library law. 



526 EDUCATION REPORT, 1895-96. 

An efficient school system is hardJy possible without the public library. From 
what has been said we see the tendency in library legislation. Encouragement and 
help on the part of the State has become more and more prominent. From 1849 to 
1889 the laws enacted in many of the States granted to the cities, towns, and com- 
munities nothing more than the right to establish and maintain public libraries. 
Permissive laws were unsatisfactory, and mandatory ones began to take their place. 

About the year 1890 a new era began to dawn. The State becomes more than a 
passive agent ; it takes action; it begins to manifest interest in the establishment 
of these libraries; it approj)riates money for their support by appointing library 
commissions and providing, in some cases, for instruction in library economy, man- 
agement, eto. Henceforth the establishment and maintenance of the public library 
is declared to be a proper object of municipal expenditure. Massachusetts, on May 
28, 1890, passed such a law; New York, April 27, 1892; New Hampshire, March 22^ 
1893; Maine, March 31, 1893; Connecticut, June, 1893; Wisconsin, April 19, 1895, 
and the District of Columbia March 18, 1896. Kentucky and New Jersey have such, 
laws pending, so that most of the States now recognize fully the importance of 
making the library free, and are already carrying out the idea so beautifully set forth 
by Mr. George Ticknor in his letter to Edward Everett in 1851, which is as follows: 

'*I would establish a library which differs from all free libraries yet attempted — 
I mean one in which auy popular book tending to moral and intellectual improve- 
ment shall be furnished in such number of copies that many persons can be reading 
the same book at the same time ; in short, that not only the best books of all sorts, 
but the present literature of tho day, shall bo made accessible to the whole people 
when they most care for it, that is, when it is fresh and new. I would therefore 
continue to buy additional books of this class almost as long as they are asked for, 
and thus, by following the popular taste— unless it should demand somethin<r inju- 
rious — create a real appetite for healthy reading. The appetite once formed will take 
care of itself. It will, in a great majority of cases, demand better and better books," 

(d) RECENT STATE LIBRARY LAWS. 

Tho following observations and suggestions on this subject have been contributed 
by Mr. Frank C. Patten, librarian of the Helena public library, Helena, Mont. : 

The new educational movement for public libraries is everywhere a very rapidly 
growing one. These libraries are fast increasing in size and usefulneps as well as in 
number. For the promotion of the best interests of this great movement experience 
shows that a good State library law is a very important factor. Such a law, by laying 
out apian, encourages the establishment and promotes the growth of public libraries. 
It is easier in any community to awaken interest in a library project if there is set 
forth in the State law a way of organizing the library that has proved successful 
elsewhere. The West is not behind in other educational good works, and it need not 
be in the matter of library legislation. 

Every year several of the States either make new library laws or make amendments 
to existing laws. The advance in library legislation in the last few years is as marked 
as is the growth of libraries. The following are believed to be the 

BEST RECENT STATE LIBRARY LAWS. 

MassachuseitSf 1890, — To be obtained from State librarian, Boston, who is chairman 
of Massachusetts library commission. 

Illinois, act amended 1891.— To be obtained from librarian Public Library, Chicago. 

New York, 189^.— To be obtained from State libarian, Albany. 

Connecticutj 1893, — To be obtained from Miss Carolina M. HeVins, librarian Public 
Library, Hartford, who is secretary of Connecticut public library committee. 

New Hampshire, act amended 1893.— To be obtained from State librarian, Concord, 
who is a member of State board of library commissioners. 

TFisconsin, 1895.— To be obtained from secretary State Historical Society, Madison, 
who is a member of the State library commission. 

Michigan, 1895.— To bo obtained from State librarian, Lansing. 

In attempting the enactment of any new library legislation or of any amend- 
ments to existing laws a clear idea should be had of the essentials of a good State 
library law. The following provisions are in liAe with the dictates of experience 
in those States where most attention is given to public libraries : 

(1) A SURE AND STEADY REVENUE. 

The law should provide that, on the petition of, say, twenty -five taxpayers, the 
rate of taxation for public library support in any city, town, or other political unit 
shall bo submitted to vote at general or special election. The rate should not be 
changed without another vote. This plan provides for what is of the utmost 
importance^ a sure and steady library revenue, not subject to changes of city council 



LIBRARY LEGISLATION IN THE UNITED STATES. 527 

action. Under Buch a plan there need be no limit of rate placed in the State law, as 
no city will vote to tax itself too high for library support. A small place will, in 
fact, often fail to realize that in order to raise money enongh to accomplish the 
object the tax must be at a much higher rate than in a large place. In Illinois the 
tax is in some places as high as 3 mills on the dollar. 

(2) CAREFUL A.TSD CONSECUTIVE MANAGEMENT. 

In order to remove public library management from the influence of party politics 
the library and its property should be wholly left to the control of trustees selected 
from citizens of recognized fitness for such duties. Experience seems to show that 
in cities the proper board of trustees can best be secured by appointment of the 
mayor and confirmation by the council. Probably the best way is to provide for 
seven trustees, two to be appointed each year (one the fourth year) for a term of four 
years. This number is large enough to be representative and small enough to avoid 
the great difl&culty in securing a quorum if the number is large. The length of term 
in connection with yearly appointment secures the mucli-needed continuity of man- 
agement, and yet there is sufficient change of officers so that the board will not be 
too far removed from the public will. 

(3) A STATE CENTER FOR LIBRARY INTERESTS. 

Within a very few years each of several States has provided for a State library 
commission, to be in some sense the head of public library interests for the State. 
By having small traveling libraries of fifty or one hundred volumes each to lend for 
a few months to localities that have no libraries, and by having a little State aid to 
distribute wisely, the commission is able to encourage communities to do more for 
themselves in the matter of a library than they otherwise would. The commission 
gives advice concerniug organization and administration whenevei it is asked, and 
a yearly report is made of their work and of library progress in the State. The 
State library commission has proved to be a useful agency wherever tried, and the 
plan seems likely to spread throughout the country. The most complete State sys- 
tem has been provided in New York, where all center in the State library at Albany 
as headquarters. The library system of New York seems to be working very success- 
fuUy. 

New Hampshire was the first State to pass a compulsory law (1895) obliging each 
town to provide a public library. 

The following outline gives the 

IMPORTANT PROVISIONS FOR A STATE LIBRARY LAW. 

General. — Purpose of public library broadly stated, perhaps in the form of a 
definition. It may include loan, reference, reading room, museum, lecture, art, and 
allied educational features. It may have branches. Mode prescribed for changing 
form of organization of a library to conform to new law,^ 

Establishment of public Hhraries, — Any political body authorized to levy and collect 
taxes may establish the library itself alone, or conjointly with other such bodies, by 
vote at any election. Vote of electors given for special tax or bonds to provide 
rooms or grounds and buildings. 

Maintenance. — By annual rate of taxation voted by electors to continue until 
changed by vote. 

Management. — Wholly in hands of trustees constituting a board so formed as to be 
independent of party political control. Appointment by mayor and confirmation 
by council a good plan in cities. Membership to change gradually— one or two changes 
each year. Term of trustees not less than three years. Number of trustees not 
less than five. All property to be acquired, held, managed, or transferred by trus- 
tees. Requests and donations to the library to be held and managed for the public 
good by the trustees. 

Protection. — Penalties for theft, mutilation, overdetention, and disturbance. 

State publications, — All publications of the State to be distributed free to public 
libraries. 

State library commission. — A body to be at the head of public library interests of the 
State, preferably to have the management of the State library and to center its 
work in that institution. The State university library might be a good center for 
the work. Members might be appointed by governor and confirmed by senate for a 
term of five years — one appointment each year. 

> Libraries for scboolrooma to bo composed of reference books, books for supplementary reading, 
Glass duplicates, aud books for teachers should be proTided for in the public school law. School funds 
Bhould be used and school authorities should manage these libraries. The business of lending books 
for home use is better and more economically managed by a public library organization. 



528 EDUCATION REPORT, 1895-96. 

feiv • ■ ^ 

IFhat may le done hy the commission, — Give advice and instruction in organization 
and administration. Receive reports from all public libraries of the State and ren- 
der report. Manage the distribution of State aid. Manage system of traveling^ 
libraries. 

Counties or school districts may wish to establish and maintain libraries, and a law 
should be worded as to allow it. It is probably most convenient to have the library- 
year correspond with the calendar year. It is well to have the trustees appointed 
and the report of the library made at a different time of the year from either the 
spring or fall elections. The library is thus more likely to be freed from the influ- 
ences of party politics. To have a library treasurer is probably the better plan, but 
library money may be kept in the hands of the city or town treasurer as a separate 
fund, and be paid out by order of the board of trustees only. 

Special conditions peculiar to each State often dictate modifications of any general 
plan for a State law. Anyone interested in the matter for his own State could read 
the general articles upon the subject and the various State laws, and then, with the 
assistance of the best legal talent to be obtained, frame an act appropriate to con- 
ditions of his State.

RESUME OF LIBRARY LEGISLATION. 

Alabama and Arlcansas have no legislation on libraries. 

Arizona, in its school laws passed in 1885, permits school trustees in townships 
where there areta hundred school children to use $50 of the school fund and any 
donations they may receive for the purchase of books for the school libraries, which 
are to be free to the teachers and pupils and to residents on the payment of such 
sums as may be prescribed by the trustees. 

California, in 1854, adopted a district library law similar to that of the State of 
New York. In 1878 a law was passed modeled after the Illinois statutes (see statutes 
of California). In 1880 an act was passed authorizing towns and cities to levy and 
collect taxes as in all other cases for the maintenance and establishment of public 
libraries and reading rooms. See page 533 of this Report. 

Colorado* — In 1872 Colorado enacted a law modeled after the Illinois plan, but the 
towns and cities did not take advantage of this law. In 1893 an act was passed 
authorizing the school board in any district to levy a tax not to exceed one-tenth of 
1 mill, the proceeds of which shall be used exclusively for the purchase of books for 
a library, to be open to the public under such rules as the district board may i>re- 
Bcribe. The laws now in force are given on page 536 of this Report. 

Connecticut. — In 1839 Connecticut passed a school library law, and a town library 
law in 1869. The public library laws of 1875 and 1876 permit towns and cities to 
establish libraries, but make no provision for their support by taxation. In 1881 a 
law was passed permitting towns to levy a tax of 2 mills on the dollar of valuation, 
the funds thus raised to be used for the support of public libraries ; the fines for 
penal offenses may also be applied for the same purpose. In 1893 a law was passed 
making the State board of education a State library committee. This committee 
has the entire control of the public libraries of the State. (See p. 321 of the Public 
Acts of the General Assembly of Connecticut, 1893.) A full text of the law is given 
on page 538. of this Report. 

Delaware, — The only library legislation in Delaware is an act to establish a State 
library. 

District of Columhia. — A bill authorizing a municipal appropriation for the support 
of a public free library was passed by the House of Representatives on March 9, 1896. 
This bill carried an amendment assessing the cost of maintenance on the District and 
exempting Government property. On March 11 the Senate refused to concur in the 
amendment and the bill was laid over for conference of the two Houses. The bill, 
a copy of which may be found on page 539 of this Report, became a law June 3, 1896. 

Florida. — In 1895 the legislature of Florida provided for the division of any county 
or counties into convenient school districts, and that any incorporated town or city 
might constitute a school district, and that money might be raised by taxation for 
the purchase of school libraries and text-books, for the salaries of teachers, and for 
other educational purposes. This act also provides that the school commissioners 
may perform all acts reasonable and necessary for the promotion of the educational 
interests of the county or district and for the general diffusion of knowledge among 
its citizens. 

Georgia.— This State has no general legislation on the subject of public libraries. 
The law requires that "money derived. from fines for nonattendance at the county 
institutes shall be used in purchasing teachers' libraries for the counties in which the 
fines are collected.^' In this way an attempt has been made to gather under the 



LIBRARY LEGISLATION IN THE UNITED STATES. 529 

county superintendent of education a library in eacli county in the State, but as the 
law has but recently been put in operation, very little has been done as yet toward a 
collection of books. 

Idaho, — Idaho has no direct mandatory legislation as to public libraries ; still there 
is a permissivo act which gives the school districts the right to make purchases of 
library material, to an amount not exceeding 25 per cent of the school fund for any 
one year. 

UlinaU. — ^In 1872 Illinois enacted a law with minute details for the establishment, 
gOYcmment, and management of public libraries, and this law has been substantially 
copied by many of the Western States. It provides for a board of nine directors, 
an independent body nominated by the mayor and approved by the citj'' council. 
This board has exclusive control of the library, with power to erect or lease build- 
ings; etc. Towns and villages may levy a tax for the support of public libraries, the 
tax not to exceed 2 mills on the dollar. Cities of less than 100,000 inhabitants, 1 
mill; cities over 100,000 inhabitants, one-fifth of a mill. The full text of this law 
may be found on page 540 of this Report. 

Indiana. — ^In 1871 Indiana passed a law making provision for public libraries. 
This law is claimed to be one of the simplest and most concise of any legislation up 
to that date. In 1873 the library association law was extended so that the towns and 
cities were authorized to have libraries. In 1883 the old library legislation was so 
extended that the trustees of the town where a library was desired might levy a tax 
of not less than one-fourth nor more than three-fourths of a mill on the dollar of 
assessed valuation for the support of the same. 1'ho money thus raised was to be 
paid over to the officers of the library for the purchase of books and library equip- 
ment. See page 541 of this Report. 

Iowa. — In 1840 Iowa enacted a district library law. In 1873 a town library law, 
embod^ring a single section, was enacted authorizing any city or town to levy a tax 
of 1 mill on the dollar of valuation for the support of a free public library. 

Kansas, — On February 28, 1870, Kansas passed an act for the ostablishmeut of dis- 
trict school libraries. This proved unsatisfactory, as usual, and a free public library 
law was passed in 1886. 

Kentucky, — In 1875 Kentucky adopted a general library law, but little progress was 
made nnder that law. A bill prci)ared by the alumnae of the Louisville high school 
providing for the establishment of a State library commission is now pending in the 
Kentucky legislature. It provides for the appointment by the governor of iive com- 
missioners who shall serve during 1896, without salaries, and shall make a careful 
study of libraries in other States, extending their inquiries into organization, main- 
tenance, legislation, State systems, educational results of the work of libraries, and 
any other matters pertaining to the modern library movement. Not later than Jan- 
nary 15, 1897, the commission shall make a report in writing to the governor, embody- 
ing the results of their inquiry and recommending such plans and legislation as in 
their Judgment will best promote the educational interests of the people of the State 
through libraries. (A copy of this bill could not be obtained.) 

Louisiana, — There is no library legislation in Louisiana, except that which per- 
tains to the State library and to library associations. See library laws, page 546 of 
this Report. 

Maine. — In 1854 Maine passed an act that provides that any town or city may raise 
by taxation $1 on each ratable poll for the establishment of a free public library, 
and 25 cents annually thereafter for its maintenance. Under this law nothing was 
done^ from the fact that the allowance was so meager that without aid from private 
individuals nothing could be done. By an act approved March 21, 1893, it was pro- 
vided that any town may establish a free public library therein for the use of its 
inhabitants, and provided suitable rooms therefor, under such regulations for its 
government as the inhabitants from time to time may prescribe. See library laws, 
page 548 of this Report. 

Maryland.— The Maryland Code, article 77, section 87, provides as follows: '* For 
further encouragement of education, district school libraries should be established in 
each schoolhouse district, under the care of the teacher as librarian. For this purpose 
the sum of $10 per annum is ordered to be paid by the board of county school com- 
missioners, out of the city school funds, to any schoolhouse district as library money 
as soon as the people of the district raise an equal amount annually." See library 
laws, page 549 of this Report. 

Massachusetts. — Massachusetts began in 1851 with a law similar to that of Maine. 
In 1859 a larger tax was allowed, and in 1866 a law was enacted similar to that of 
New Hampshire, allowing any city or town to raise any sum which it deemed nec- 
essary. An act in 1870 ** for the establishment of districts for maintaining street 
lamps/^ granting power to ''maintain street lamps, establish and maintain libraries, 
and maintain sidewalks." The law of 1890 provides for a library commission. Mas- 
sachusetts seems to be the only State that has made and published a compilation 
of its library laws. The historical value of this compilation justifies its republica-

tion. On page 549 of this Report will be found the library legislation of Massacha- 
setts from 1798 to 1890. 

Michigan. — Michigan stands alone in having in the first constitution of the State 
the following clause : *'The legislature shall also provide for the establishment of 
at least one library in every township." A school-district library law was enacted 
in 1859. This plan proved a failure, as it had done in all the other States which 
adopted it. In 1877 a free public library law, similar to that of Illinois, was passed. 
In 1881 an act was passed authorizing the qualified voters of any school district in 
which a district library ^* may hereafter be established, to vote a district tax for the 
support of said library," the tax to be levied and collected in the same manner as 
other township and school-district taxes. See library laws, page 566. 

Minnesota. — Minnesota passed a district library law in 1867. In the same year a 
law was passed exempting libraries and their buildings from taxation, and in 1875 
an act was passed for their protection. See library laws, page 568. 

Missouri. — In 1885 Missouri passed a public library law very similar in character 
to that of Illinois. This law was prepared by Mr. Crunden, of the St. Louis Public 
Library, and follows the Illinois law, with slight variations. The law regarding 
district libraries is given on page 568. 

Mississippi. — In 1892 Mississippi enacted a general library law (embodied in the 
municipal laws). 

Montana. — In 1883 Montana passed a general library law, modeled after the Illinois 
plan. It provided that the municipal authorities of any incorporated town or city 
may establish a free public library, and may levy a tax for its support not exceeding 
1 mill on the dollar of assessed valuation. The law provides that the question of 
establishing a library must first be submitted to the voters of the district for accept- 
ance or rejection. 

Nebraska. — In 1877 Nebraska enacted a general library law, also modeled after the 
Illinois plan, but going more minutely into details. See library laws, page 568. 

N<no Hampshire. — As has been noted elsewhere the first free public library (sup- 
ported by municipal authority) was established in New Hampshire in 1833. This 
State enacted the first general free public library law in 1849. This law is very simple 
in form, and its main features remain unchanged. Any town may raise and appro- 
priate money for establishing and maintaining a library without limitation as to 
amount and as to management (the money to be raised by ordinary taxation). In 
1877 an act was passed for the protection of public libraries, and in 1891 the public 
statutes of New Hampshire, chapter 8, sections 21 to 26, provides a law for the suj)- 
port of free public libraries by the State. See page 571. 

Xeio Jersey. — New Jersey, following the example of many other States, has modeled 
her library laws after Illinois. An act was passed in 1884 which provides that upon 
the api)roval of a majority of voters at a special election it shall be the duty of the 
authorities to levy a tax of one-third of a mill on the dollar of assessed valuation 
for a public library fund. The board of trustees, composed of the mayor, superin- 
tendent of public instruction, and five others appointed by the mayor is made a 
corporate body to servo without pay. The act further empowers three or more per- 
sons to organize a corporation for the purpose of establishing a free public library. 
See school library laws, page 572. 

New Mexico. — New Mexico, under an act of 1884 with regard to municipal corpora- 
tions, allows the council or trustees of any city or incorporated town to appropriate 
money for a public library, ])rovidedthe annual appropriation shall not exceed 1 mill 
on the* dollar of assessed valuation, and the law further provides that no appropria- 
tion shall be made until the proposition has been submitted to a popular vote. 

Nevada.-r-So far as can be learned, Nevada has no library legislation of any kind. 

New York. — As has been noted fully elsewhere, New York passed a district public 
library law in 1835. In 1838 the general assembly appropriated $55,000 annually 
for the support of these libraries. As elsewhere, however, these district libraries 
proved a failure. Under a provision of the school law in 1847, there were a number 
of free libraries supported indirectly by taxation. In 1872 a public library law was 
passed providing that upon the written petition of the majority of all the taxable 
inhabitants of any village, town, or city, its common council, board of trustees, 
or town auditors, may establish and maintain a free public library, each qualified 
voter being required to pay $1 for the foundation, and 50 cents annually thereafter 
for its maintenance. In 1885 the law was amended so as to include public reading 
rooms with or without libraries. It is not known that a single library was estab- 
lished under this law. In 1886 a law was passed to encourage the growth of free 
circulating libraries in the cities. On May 13, 1887, an act was passed providing for 
libraries in towns and cities of loss than 30,000 inhabitants. In 1892, an act for the 
encouragement of common school and public libraries was passed and approved by 
the governor on May 14. See library laws, page 572. 

North Carolina. — This State has no recent legislation other than that pertaining to

tli# State library. On page 576 will be found the laws in full, beginning in 1715, and 
including all legislation in regard to libraries. 

North Dakota, — In 1890 the leeislatureof North Dakota passed a law for the estab- 
lishment and maintenance of a law library for the State University. In 1891 a law 
was passed for the purchase of reference and pedagogical books for a State educa- 
tional library iu the office of the superintendent of public instruction. In the same 
freay a. law was passed for the establishment of district school board libraries. For 
ibrary laws, see page 584. 

Ohio,— The first public library laws in Ohio were passed in 1867. Other laws were 
enacted in 1873 and 1875. Under the school library law of 1853 the State had an 
experience similar to that of New York, and in 1868 it was a question what to do 
with the books of the school libraries of the State. The present free public library 
law authorizes towns and cities to raise money by taxation for the establishment and 
maintenance of libraries. The law further provides that in cities of 20,000 inhabi- 
tants and over, the board of education may appoint a library commission of tliree 
who shall have entire control of the library, its administration, appointment of 
officers, etc., and even the levying of taxes for the support and increase of the 
library, but this commission is amenable to the board of education. See library 
laws, page 585. 

Oregon.— The only information obtained from this State is the following regarding 
school libraries, taken from the school laws of 1893: 

"Section 37a. The directors of school districts are hereby allowed to purchase 
from time to time, with the common school fund for their districts, such books of 
reference and apparatus as the interests of the school demand ; and the books of 
reference and apparatus shall be kept at the schoolhouse during each term of school, 
for the use of the teachers and pupils : Providedj That the yearly expenditures 
therefor shall not exceed $50 in districts receiving $500 or over from the common 
school fund, and 10 per centum thereof in districts receiving less than $500 
therefrom." 

^Penn8ylvania, — Pennsylvania has a district library law passed in 1864, and a gen- 
eral library law for the incorporation of library associations was passed in 1874. A 
law has been passed by the legislature appropriating all taxes on dogs for the sup- 
port and maintenance of public libraries now organized, provided the library com- 
pany shall provide and maintain a free reading room for the town, city, or borough 
where established. See library laws, page 587. 

Rhode Island, — In 1867 Rhode Island gave the towns power to establish public 
libraries, and in 1869 a law was passed empowering two towns to combine and form 
a library jointly. In 1875 a free public library law was passed. Any town or city 
may levy a tax of 2| mills on the dollar of valuation for the establishment of a 
library, and tAvo-tenths of a mill annually thereafter for the maintenance of the same. 

South Carolina. — On November 16, 1700, the legislative assembly passed an act look- 
ing to the preservation of the library of the Rev. Thomas Bray, D. D., founder of 
the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. There has been no 
other legislation, except for the State library. 

Tennessee, — There is no legislation in this State regarding public libraries. There 
are in Tennessee, as in a number of other States, general acts for the iucori)oration 
and protection of libraries. 

Texas, — Texas enacted a law in 1874 which provides that any incorporated town or 
city may establish a free public library and may make such regulations and grant 
such parts of its revenues for the maintenance and increase thereof as the municipal 
government of the town may determine. 

Utah, — On March 9, 1896, the legislature of Utah passed a bill which provides that 
the common council of a city or town may levy a tax for the establishment and 
maintenance of free public libraries. See page 590 for legislation in full. 

'Vei'mont. — In 1865 Vermont established a law similar to that of New Hampshire, and 
in 1867 modeled a law after that of Maine. It provides 50 cents per poll annually 
for the maintenance of the library. In 1869 a library -aKsociation law was passed. 
In 1884 the general library law was amended by raising the legal limit of expenditure 
from $1 to $3 per poll for the establishment of a library, leaving the tax per poll at 
50 cents thereafter for the maintenance of the same. On November 9, 1894, a law 
was passed creating a library commission. Section 1 of that act reads as follows: 

*'The governor shall appoint five persons, residents of the State, who shall consti- 
tute a board of library commissioners. The governor shall designate the chairman 
thereof. One member of said board shall be appointed for the term of five years, 
one for four years, one for three years, one for two years, and one for one year, and 
thereafter the term of office of the commissioners shall be five years. All vacancies 
of said board, whether occurring by expiration of term or otherwise, shall be filled 
by the governor." 

Washington, — So far as learned, there has been no general library legislation in 
Washington. 



532 EDUCATION REPORT, 1895-96. 

West Virginia. — ^Nothing reported from this State. 

Wisconsin, — In 1868 Wisconsin passed a law permitting towns and cities to raise 
by taxation annually $150 for the purchase of books. In 1872 a law was enacted 
similar to that of Illinois, by which towns and cities were authorized to levy a tax 
of 1 mill on the dollar for the establishment and support of free public libraries. 
In 1876 an excellent law, prepared by the American Library Association, was passec 
for the establishment and maintenance of libraries in towns and villages. The 
substance of the law is as follows : 

"The common council of every city not exceeding in population 50,000 inhabi- 
tants, and the village board, or board of trustees, of every village, and the town 
board of every town containing over 2,000 inhabitants, shall have power to estab- 
lish and maintain a public library and reading room, and for such purposes may 
annually levy, and cause to be collected as other general taxes are collected, a tax 
not exceeding 1 mill on each dollar of taxable property of such city, town, or vil- 
lage, or may set aside and appropriate a sum not to exceed 10 per cent of the money 
received in any year for license issued for vending or dealing in spirituous, vinous, 
or fermented liquors, to constitute a library fund, which fund shall be kept by the 
treasurer separate and apart from other money of the city, town, or village, and 
to be used exclusively for such purposes : Provided, That no tax shall bo levied with- 
out the same first be submitted to a vote and bo approved by a majority of the 
votes cast at such election in such city, town, or village on such question." 

For the government of such free public libraries the law provides for a board of 
nine directors who shall be appointed by the mayor, president of the town council, or 
chairman of village trustees, and approved by the general council of the city or town, 
the said directors to serve without compensation. The law of 1895, appointing a 
library commission, will bo found on page 596. 

Wyoming. — The public library law of Wyoming, as it appears in the revised stat- 
utes of 1887, reads as follows: 

" Section 684. When the county commissioners of any county have received proper 
and sufficient guarantees, whether in the form of conveyances or bonds of citizens, 
or associations or corporations, that a suitable place shall bo penuanenlly furnished 
for the protection and use of a public library, as a condition i)reccdent to thoir own 
action, under the provisions of this section it shall bo their duty to levy annually a 
tax of not less than one-eighth Of a mill nor more than one-half of a mill on the dol- 
lar on all taxable property in the county for the establishment and maintenance of 
a public library to be located at tho county seat of such couutj-." 

The law also provides that tho county commissioners may appoint three trustees to 
constitute a library board, the same to have entire charge of the organization and 
management of the library. The law further provides tnat no part of the library 
fund shall be expended for sectarian or professional books, and that not more than 
25 per cent of said fund shall be expended for works of fiction, but that the books 
purchased '^shall be of a kind best suited to inform the mind and improve the char- 
acter of the reader." For library laws of the State, see page 597.

STATE LIBRARY LAWS. 

An effort has been made to collect the library laws of the various States and 
Territories. The success of this effort may be judged from what appears in the 
pages which follow. This effort, it is hoped, may be the means of stimulating States 
which heretofore have taken no action with regard to library legislation. The 



LIBRARY LEGISLATION IN* THE UNITED STATES. 533 

information from many of the States is fragmentary and not altogether satisfactory, 
but it is given for what it is worth. In other States it appears that the library laws 
have never been compiled, so that it would require an extensive search to ascertain 
what laws regarding public libraries have been enacted. 

Massachusetts seems to be tho only State that has published a compilation of her 
library laws. This compilation is of great historical value, and is given in full as a 
sample for other States desiring to make a compilation of their library laws. The 
laws of North Carolina are given at great length, as much on account of their 
qnaintnesB as on account of the light which they throw upon the early history of 
tiie State. 

The more recent public library laws of several of tho States are given as samples 
for other States that may be contemplating the establishment of public libraries. 
It may also be seen from this compilation what progress has been made in tho several 
States regarding tho establishment and maintenance of public libraries. 

The courtesy of the various State officials who have so kindly and promptly replied 
to letters of inquiry is hereby acknowledged.

COLORADO. 
[From Public Library Handbook, Denver, Colo.] 

Colorailo's library law is not in a very satisfactory condition. Statutes and parts 
of statutes passed at different times seem in part to contradict and in part to dupli- 
cate one another. Just what may and may not be done under the existing laws it 
would probably be impossible to determine except through judicial interpretation. 
The following digest may serve a good purpose in making it plain that our present 
library law is very obscure. 

The establishment and maintenance of free public libraries is doolari'd to be a 
proper objeot of municipal expenditure. The trustees of any city or incorporated 
town may appropriate money for a public library if at a previous election a majority 
of the people have voted in favor of such action : Provided, No such appropriation 
shall exceed one mill upon the dollar. Every city or incorporated town in which 
such a library shall bo maintained shall be entitled to receive a copy of the laws, 
JournalH, and all other works published by the authority of the State after the 
establishment of such a library, for the use of such library, and the secretary of 
state is authorized to furnish the same from year to year to such city or incorporated 
town. (Mills's Annotated Statutes, kcc. 4403, par. 76.) 

The clear proceeds of certain fines and penalties may be applied to the establish- 
ment and support of a public library. (Mills, 2815.) 

The council or trustees of any city or town may, if they boo fit, a^ply any part 
of the clear i)roceeds of certain fines in aid of any library association for the benefit of 
the public: Provided, Such library association give the council or trustees such rep- 
resentation in its board of management as the latter may ask. (Mills, 2821 ,) 

The city council of any incorporated city may establish and maintain a pul)lio 
library and reading room, and may levy a tax for such iiurpose of not to exceed one 
mill on the dollar annually ; in cities of over one hundred thousand inhabitants this 
tax is not to exceed ono-lialf of one mill on a dollar annually. (Sess. Laws, 1893, 
Chan. CXV, sec. 1.) 

When any city has established a library under the foregoing section, the mayor 
shall appoint six persons, who, together with the mayor, shall constitute the library 
board. The appointments must be approved by the city council. (Sess. Laws, 1893, 
Chap. CXV, sec. 2.) 

One-half of these directors hold office for one year and one-h.ilf for two years 
from the first of July following their appointment. The mayor shall annually there- 
after appoint three directors, and shall fill all vacancies. Any director may be 
removed by the mayor and council for cause. (Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, sees. 3 
and 4.) 

No directors shall receive compensation. (Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, sec. 4.) 

Each director shall give a bond of five hundred dollars. (Mills, 2319.) 

The mayor is president of the board. The board elects other officers, and makes 
rules and by-laws, has exclusive control of the expenditure of all money, and the 
management of all grounds, buildings, rooms, etc., owned, leased, or set apart for 
library purposes. The library fund must be deposited in the city treasury. The 
board has power to appoint a suitable librarian and assistants and to iix their com- 
pensation. (Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, see. 5.) 

All libraries established under this act shall be forever free. The board may 
exclude any person who wilfully violates the library rules. The use of the library 
may be extended to persons residing outside of the city, but within the State. 
(Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, sec. 6.) 

The board of directors must make an annual report to the city council. (Sess. 
Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, sec. 7.) 

The city council of any city has power to pass ordinances imposing suitable penal- 
ties for the punishment of persons injuring any book or other property of the library, 
or for the failure to return books borrowed. (Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, sec. 8. ) 

Any person may make any gift, donation, etc., to the library, by vesting the title 
of the same in the library board, as special trustees. (Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, 
sec. 9. ) 

If 'fifty legal voters of any incorporated town present a petition asking that an 
annual tax be levied to establish and maintain a free public library, and a majority 
of the legal voters vote in favor of such action at the next annual election th<^ ^n-^ 



LIBRARY LEGISLATION IN THE UNITED STATES. 537 

mentioned in the petition shall be collected and known as the ** library fund/' Snch 
tax shall cease whenever the majority of legal voters so determine. (Sess. Laws, 
1893, Chap. CXV, sec. 10.) 

At the next regnlar election after any town shall have voted to establish a free 
public library, a board of six directors shall bo elected, one-half to serve one year 
and one-half to serve two years. The board shall have the same powers as are con- 
ferred on the library board in a city. (Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, sec. 11,) 

The board of any school district may order a levy of not to exceed one-tenth of 
one mill, the proceeds of which shall be used exclusively for the purchase of books 
for a library which shall be open to the public. (Mills, 4032.) 

Any library association can sell or lease its property in any manner it may desire 
to the board of directors of any public library upon the vote of the majority of its 
subscribers or stockholders. (Sess. Laws, 1893, Chap. CXV, sees, 12 and 13.) 

Public libraries are exempt from taxation. (Mills, 3766^ constitution of Colorado, 
Art. X, sec. 4.) 

The State librarian is directed to turn over to the librarian of any free public 
library in this State, if desired for public use therein, and to take the receipt of such 
librarian therefor, one copy of each and every such book, pamphlet, or periodical 
published by the State as can be spared, now on hand, or which shall be published 
by the State from time to time hereafter. (Mills, 2822.) 

THE STATE LIBRARY. 

The State superint^mdent of public instruction is ox oflScio librarian for the State. 
The State library is open to the public from ten a. m. to twelve m., and from two 
p. m. to four p. m. each day, except Sundays and holidays. (Mills, 2802. \ 

The librarian has charge of all books, etc., and keeps a regular file of all such State 
newspapers as may be donated. (Mills, 2803. ) 

He may employ an assistant librarian who shall have charge of the State library, 
under such regulations as may be prescribed by the State librarian or by law. The 
salary of the assistant librarian is one thousand dollars ^er annum. (Mills, 3979.) 

All books sent by other States are received and properly labeled ^nd arranged by 
the librarian. (Mills, 2804. ) 

Receipt of each book, etc., is acknowledged and a record kept. (Mills, 2805.) 

The librarian makes rules and regulations. (Mills, 2806.) 

Statutes, journals, legislative documents, and other books are to be exchanged with 
other legislative bodies and State libraries as the librarian deems proper. (Mills, 
2807.) 

All persons are permitted to visit the library, examine and read the books therein, 
and may take out any book and retain the same three weeks on depositing with the 
librarian, to insure its safe return, a sura of money equal to double the value of the 
book. State and county officers have free access to the library, but they may not 
obtain books for persons not engaged in public work. (Mills, 2808.) 

The State librarian makes a full and complete report to the general assembly. 
(Mills, 2809.) 

The librarian must file a bond. (Mills, 2814.) 

SCHOOL LIBRARIES. 

The qualified electors of any district of the third class, when assembled at any 
regular or special meeting, may order a sufficient levy on all the taxable i^roperty of 
the district to procure libraries for the schools. (Mills, 4027. See also p. 159, Mills, 
4032.) . 

[Section G7 of the school laws of the State of Colorado as amended to date, 1893.] 

Section 67. On or before the day designated by law for the commissioners of each 
county to levy the requisite taxes for the then ensuing year, the school board in 
each district shall certify to the county commissioners the number of mills per dollar 
which it is necessary to levy on the taxable property of the district to raise a special 
fund for any of the purposes specified in section fifty-one of this chapter, and the 
county comimissioners shall cause the same to be levied at the same time that other 
taxes are levied, and the amount of such special tax which shall be assessed to each 
taxpayer of such district shall be placed in a separate column of the tax book, which

of the third class shall not certify, as above, to a higher rate than fifteen mills per 
dollar. There shall also be a column in said tax book in which shall be designated

TOWNSHIP LIBRARIES. 
[1865, page 3. Approved and in force March 6, 1865.] 

4529. (Township trustee in charge.) Such library shall be in charge of the town 
ship trustee, shall be deemed the property of the township, and Khali not be subject 
to sale or alienation from any cause whatever. 

4530. (Trustee's duties.) Such trustee shall be accountable for the preservation of 
said library; may prescribe the time of taking and tho period of retaining books; 
assess and recover damage done to them by any person ; and adopt regulations neces- 
sary for their preservation and usefulness. Ho shall provide bookcases ; also, blank 
books, ruled, in which to keep an account of books taken out and returned; and 
report the number each year to the county superintendent. At the commencement 
of each school term, at each schoolhouse in the township, he shall cause a notice to 
be posted up, stating where the library is kept, and inviting the free use of the 
books thereol by the persons of the township. 

4531. (Use of books.) Every family in the township shall be entitled to the use 
of two volumes at a time from said librarj'^, whether any member of such family shall 
attend school or not. 

4532. (Where kept.) The trustee may deposit the library at some central or eligi- 
ble place in tho township, for the convenience of scholars and families, and may- 
appoint for that purpose a librarian to have tho care and superintendence thereof. 

1. (Pay of librarian.) When the township trustee employs a township librarian, 
he has authority to make a contract to pay him so much* a year. The power to 
appoint a librarian gives the trustee the power to secure tho acceptance of such 
appointment by paying a sufficient, but reasonable, compensation. There is no 
stattito fixing a fee for such work, but the same is to be paid for out of the town- 
ship's general fund for ordinary township purposes. (Baldwin, attorney-general.) 

4533. (When open.) Tho library shall bo open to all persons entitled to its privi- 
leges throughout the year without regard to school sessions, Sundays and holidays 
excepted.

4533a. (Tax levy for library.) Any township in which there has been or may here- 
after be established by private donations a library of the value of one thousand 
dollars or more for the use and benefit of all the inhabitants thereof, the township 
trustee of such township shall annually levy and collect not more than one cent ou 
the hundred dollars upon tho taxable property within the limits of such township, 
which shall bo paid to tho trustees of such library, and be applied by them to the 
purchase of books for said library, and may, with tho consent of the board of com- 
missioners of the county, when it shall become necessary to erect or enlarge a library 
building, annually, for such period as may be necessary, levy and collect not more 
than five cents on the one hundred dollars upon the taxable property of said town- 
ship for not more than three years successively, which shall bo expended by the trus- 
tees in the erection or enlargement of a library building. 

1. When the Young People's Reading Circle books shall, collectively, even though 
they may bo distrihuted to the several district schools in the township, amount to 
one thousand dollars in value, I think the trustee of such township would be war- 
ranted by tho above statute in levying a tax of one cent on the one hundred dollars 
of taxables for the support and addition to such library. (H. D. Tories, superintend- 
ent of public instruction.) 



LIBRARY LEGISLATION IN THE UNITED STATES. 545 

2. If the people of the several districts, or the pupils of the several schools, should 
appoint trustees, in some uniform way, as they may choose, I think the intent of the 
above section would be fully complied with. (H. D. Vories, superintendent of publio.

five thousand dollars or more, including the real estate and buildings used for said

become necessary to purchase additional ground for the extension or protection of 
library buildings already established by such private donatiou, annually levy and 
collect not more than five cents on the hundred dollars upon all taxable property of 
said township for not more than three years successively, which shall be expended 
by said trustees in the purchase of said property and the erection and enlargement 
of the library building thereon. (School Laws of Indiana, 1895, pp. 184-190.)

MARYLAND. 

The Maryland Code, article 77, section 87, provides as follows: **For the further 
encouragement of education, district school libraries ought to be established in each 
schoolhouse district, under the care of the teacher as librarian. For this purpose 
the sum of ten dollars per annum is ordered to be paid by the board of county school 
commissioners, out of the State school fund, to any schoolhouse district ns library 
money as long as the people of the district raise the same amount annually. The 
books must be selected by the board of district school trustees.'' 

To aid in tho execution of this law, the State board of education resolved some 
months since to publish a list of books suitable for school libraries, and requested 
the undersigned to prepare a list to be submitted to the board. The several mem- 
bers of the board famished valuable lists, and from these, aud by aid of the cata- 
logues of the principal publishers of the country, and of published lists for public 
school libraries, prepared by the State superintendents of public instruction of several 
of the States, who kindly furnished us the results of their labor, this list has been 
compiled. 

It is arranged under tliree general heads, viz: (1) Books suitable for primary 
grades; (2) books suitable for grammar school grades, aud (3) books suitable for 
high school grades. 

Under the first head the subdivisious are fiction and miscellaneous; under the 
second and third, history, biography, travels, science and natural history, fiction, 
poetry, and miscellaneous. A list of reference books and one of professional books 
for teachers are added. 

We have endeavored to exclude all sectarian and partisan books. 

Tho books for primary grades have been selected with special care, and we hope 
will be found to bo especially interesting and instructive. We have aimed to include 
the works of only the best writers of each class of books. 

The list gives tho retail price of each book. Baltimore booksellers have agreed to 
furnish the books on the list to public school libraries at a discount of from 10 to SZ^ 
per cent. We respectfully recommend you to deal with them. Some publishers " 
allow a larger discount to dealers than others, and we consider the above offer fair 
and liberal. You can select a list of books and send it io your bookseller for net 
prico3 before purchasing. 

It is recommended that libraries be kept in substantial bookcases, and that books 
be covered with stout paper before they are used. 

This list will bo furnished to district schools having libraries or proposing to pur- 
chase libraries, through the school examiner or directly from this office, upon applica- 
tion, inclosing 4 cents in postage stamps. — E. B. Pkettyman, State sujyerintendent

as provisions necessary for the convenience and prosperity of the schools. 

e. Boards of education may purchase "school or reading charts" for use in schools of their respec- 
tive districts, and are not limited to the amount authorized to be expended by the provisions of section

and their effects on the human svstem, in connection with the subject of physiology and hygiene, in 
all erades of the schools, and which makes it the duties of boards of education to make provision for. 
Bucn instruction, it seems a reasonable construction of the ect that such boards are authorized to pur* 
chase such anatomical studies and charts as they may deem it necessary to give this instruction sue* 
oeasfuUy without regard to limitations as to tho amount to be expendetl, set forth in thi& ^^^As^'v^^'^k.

STATISTICS FOR 1900. 

The number of public, society, and school libraries in the United States of 1,000 
volumes and over is 5,383, according to reports collected by this Bureau in 1900. 
This shows an increase of 1,357 libraries in less than five years. The number of 
volumes in the 5,383 libraries was 44,591,851 as compared with 33,051,872 in th6 
4,026 libraries reported at the beginning of the year 1896, the remarkable increase of 
11,539,979 volumes or almost 35 per cent in the five years. 



924 EDUCATION REPORT, 1899-1900. 

The statistics of libraries for 1900 will be found summarized in tables 1 to 9 and 
the statistics in detail for each library will be given in the concluding pages of this 
chai>ter. Tables 10 to 14 reproduce the rnost important items in similar tables for 
1875, 1885, 1891, and 1896. 

Table 1 gives the number of libraries, the number of volumes, and the number of 
pamphlets reported from each State and shows the increase in number of libraries 
and volumes and the percentage of increase in volumes in each State and geograph- 
ical division. The North Atlantic Division has 2,473 of the 5,383 libraries and a 
million more than half the number of volumes in the United States. New York 
alone has 718 libraries with 7,496,509 volumes; Massachusetts, 571 libraries with 
6,633,285 volumes, and Pennsylvania, 401 libraries with 3,974,577 volumes. 

The N(jrth Central Division has 1,728 libraries with 11,211,710 volumes. Illinois 
has 309 of tliese libraries with 2,472,710 volumes; Ohio, 266 libraries with 2,055,589 
volumes, and Michigan, 193 libraries with 1,298,708 volumes. 

The South Atlantic Division has 421 libraries with 5,303,237 volumes. Maryland 
has 80 of these libraries with 1,175,253 volumes, and the District of Columbia 74, with 
2,504,783 volumes, one million of these being in the Library of Congress. 

The South Central Division has 374 libraries with 1,886,731 volumes. Kentucky 
has 76 libraries with 425,729 volumes, and Tennessee, 77 libraries with 392,221 
volumes. 

The Western Division has 387 libraries with 2,779,596 volumes. California has 212 
of these libraries with 1,781,858 volumes, and Colorado 54, with 363,866 volumes. 

The last column of table 1 shows the jyer cent of increase in the number of vol- 
umes in each State since 1896. The per cent of increase for the whole country w*as 
almost 35; for the North Atlantic Division nearly 33; for the South Atlantic Division 
32; for the South Central Division nearly 39; for the North Central Division almost 
40, and for the Western Division about 38. Oklahoma shows the greatest per cent 
of increase, 379. The following States and Territories show percentages of increase 
above 100: West Virginia, Arkansas, Indian Territory, Oklahoma, North Dakota, 
South Dakota, and New Mexico. 

Table 2 shows that of the 5,383 libraries, 3,036 had 209,412 periodicals in their 
reading rooms, 3,684 had added 2,156,992 volumes during the year, and 1,455 had 
added 549,326 pamphlets. The number of volumes issued for home u?e during the 
year by 2,405 libraries was 48,410,128, and the number issued for use in 783 libraries 
was 9,609,632. 

Table 3 indicates the sources of support and the classification of the libraries report 
ing. Only 1,040 libraries occupy their own buildings; 592 occupy rented buildings. 
Of the 3,751 not answeiing the question in regard to this item, s<*hool, college, and 
other libraries occupying buildings or rooms rent free comprise the greater propor- 
tion. The nmnber of libraries supported by taxation is 2,375 and the number by 
subscription, 2,870. Only 138 are reported as Ijeing supported by both taxation and 
subscription. The number reported as entirely free to the public is 2,734, the num- 
ber free for reference only 1,735, and the number of subscription libraries 914. 
There are 447 libraries classed as circulating, 1,148 as reference, and 3,788 as both cir- 
culating and reference. 

Table 4 shows a general classification of the libraries reporting. There are 1,979 
general libraries, 1,725 school, and 689 college libraries. The remaining libraries are 
divided among 15 classes. 

In Table 5 the libraries are classified according to size. There are 4 libraries 
having over 500,000 volumes each, 3 between 300,000 and 500,000, and 47 between 
100,000 and 300,000. The number of libraries having below 5,000 volinnes is 
3,654. 

Table 6 is a summary of the income of libraries from various sources, their endow- 
ments, value of buildings, and the amount expended for books during the year. 



PUBLIC, SOCIETY, ANB SCHOOL LIBBAEIE8. 925 - 

Very few librarians made complete reports, but the number reporting on each item 
is given in the table. Of the 5,38S libraries, 988 received $2,213,715 directly from 
taxation, 1,016 received $2,349,294 from State, county, or city appropriations, 714 
received $1,198,955 from endowment funds, 962 received $448,130 from membership 
fees and dues, 294 received $50,742 from book rents, 819 received $551,522 from dona- 
tions, and 1,474 received $1,000,048 from sources not stated. The total income of 
3,115 libraries was $7,812,406. 

The aggregate of the endowment funds reported by 645 libraries is $25,267,643, and 
the value of buildings owned by 710 libraries is $47,083,805. The amount expended 
for books during the year by 2,972 libraries WEts $2,056,675. 

It is shown in Table 7 that there is one library to every 14,118 people in the United 
States, and that there are 59 books to every. 100 population. The North Atlantic 
Division has a library to every 8,510 persons, and the South Central Division a library 
to every 37,647 persons. 

The District of Columbia has 899 volumes to every 100 of population; Massachu- 
setts, 236; New Hampshire, 176; Connecticut, 170; Khode Island, 163; Nevada, 157; 
California, 120; New York, 103, and Maine, 101 volumes to each 100 population. 

Table 8 is a summary of the statistics of 3,878 public, society, and school libraries 
of 300 volumes and over and less than 1,000 volumes. These libraries have 2,018,658 
volumes. The number of libraries free to the public included in the above number 
is 2,611; free for reference, 684, and subscription, 619. Of the total number, 3,189 
are school libraries, 88 college, 382 general, and 219 other libraries. 

In Table 9 are combined the statistics of Tables 1 and 8. The number of libraries 
having 300 volumes and over is 9,261, and the number of volumes in these libraries 
46,610,509. This is a gain of 2,077 libraries and 12,014,251 volumes since 1896. 

Tables 10, 11, and 12 are comparable with Table 9, giving the statistics of libraries 
of 300 volumes and over for 1875, 1885, a^d 1896. 

Tables 13 and 14 are comparable with Table 7, giving the statistics for 1891 and 
1896. In 1891 the number of volumes to every lOO people was 41, in 1896 the num- 
ber was 47, and in 1900 the number of volumes to the 100 population was 59. 

Table 15 is comparable with Table 1. It gives the statistics for 1896, showing that 
from 1891 to 1896 there had been an increase of a little over 27 per cent in the num- 
ber of volumes. Table 1 shows the remarkable increase of nearly 35 per cent between 
1896 and 1900. 

Following the fifteen tables of summarized statistics already mentioned will be 
found the list of the 5,383 libraries of 1,000 volumes and over reporting to this OflSce 
in 1900. It is not claimed that none have been omitted, but certainly every reason- 
able effort was made to obtain a complete list. The Office had a trial list of over 
12,000 names of libraries. To many of these libraries a second, third, and fourth 
request for information was sent, requiring the use of more than 20,000 blank forms. 
After classifying the returns, it was found that 5,383 libraries had 1,C00 volumes or 
over, 3,878 had 300 volumes and over, but less than 1,000, while several thousand 
had less than 300 volumes each. From several hundred no information could be 
obtained. Some libraries printed in the list for 1896 failed to make any report for 
1900. In such cases letters of inquiry were addressed to the postmasters, and where- 
ever the library was found to be still in existence its name was retained in the list 
and the 1896 statistics repeated. 

In every Annual Report from 1867-68 to the present year has appeared information 
relating to college and school libraries, and periodically the Bureau has published 
detailed statistics of public libraries. The Annual Report for 1870 contained a list of 
161 principal libraries not including college libraries. The Report for 1872 contained 
a list of 1,080 libraries of 1,000 or more volumes. A special effort was made in 
1875 to obtain a list of all the libraries in the United States having 300 volumes. lissA. 
over. The list as printed in the Report for that yea.T \Tis\\v^'^'i,^A^^^"cay^^ ^ss^$^^

these 2,039 had 1,000 or more volumes. This list was also published in the great 
special report issued by this OflSce in 1876. That report was a volume of about 
1,200 pages devoted to ** Public libraries in the United States of America, their 
history, condition, and management. '' The volume contained 39 chapters by as 
many as twenty eminent specialists in subjects relating to libraries. In the Annual 
Report for 1884-85 was published a list of 5,338 libraries of 300 or more volumes; 
2,988 of these libraries had 1,000 or more volumes. This list was reprinted in a 
pamphlet of about 100 pages. A valuable chapter of about 70 pages appeared in 
the 1886-87 report devoted to "Libraries in the United States.'* The statistics of 
1,779 libraries were published in seven tables, classified as follows: (1) Free public 
lending libraries, (2) free public reference libraries, (3) free public schopl libraries, 
(4) free corporate lending libraries, (5) libraries of clubs, associations, etc., (6) sub- 
scription corporate libraries, and (7) circulating libraries proper. In 1893 this 
Bureau published 20,000 copies of a circular of information of 213 pages, giving the 
statistics of 3,503 public libraries in the United States having 1,000 volumes and 
over. The statistics collected were for the year 1891. Also in 1893 the Bureau pub- 
lished 20,000 copies of '* Catalogue of A. L. A. Library, 5,000 volumes for a public 
library selected by the American Library Association and shown at the World's 
Columbian Exposition." So great was the demand for this publication that a second 
edition was printed in 1896. This special report contained about 600 pages. The 
papers prepared for the American Library Association for its annual meeting held 
at Chicago in 1893, and read before the World's Library Congress at the Columbian 
Exposition, were printed in the Education Report for 1892-93. These papers, 
which were prepared by about twenty leading members of the association, occupy 
324 pages of the above-mentioned Report, pages 691-1014. A small edition of the 
matter was reprinted in a separate pamphlet. One of the most popular publica- 
tions of this Bureau is Cutter's Rules for a Dictionary Catalogue, which was p!ub- 
lished in 1876 as Part II of the special library report of that year. The third edi- 
tion was published in 1891 in a pamphlet of 140 pages. The special report issued 
by this Bureau in 1886 on "Educational Exhibits and Conventions at the World's 
Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition, New Orleans, 1884-85," contained 
much valuable matter in relation to libraries. This report is now out of print, as 
are all the earlier reports above mentioned. In addition to the statistics of college 
and school libraries published every year in the Annual Reports of this Bureau since 
1870, many of the Reports have contained valuable facts concerning libraries in 
foreign countries. This is particularly true of the Reports from 1888-89 to 1899-1900.
