The Trustees of the Library of
nnwan unuer tne Act o t t li e
Legislature -making appropriations
for the maintenance and support of
the Library are directed to provide
a n d maintain branch libraries,
offices or places for the distribution
of books and periodicals through
out the Territory, and otherwise to
provide ways and means for placing
the Library as far as possible with
in reach of all residents throughout
the Territory. The Trustees
realize both the importance and
the difficulty of this part of their
work, and therefore wish to make
the following public statement of
their tentative plans and to request
suggestions from all persons in
terested. The available funds are
limited, and the Trustees can
therefore for the present merely
make a start in developing the
desired system o f Island libraries
In the modern public library the
agencies fjir reaching ueople who
nuot visit the central library tnav
take the following forms:
A branch library has its own
collection of books, supplementing
its resources from the central
library. It may be
(a) Practically an
branch operated a s
(b) A pait of a perfectly cen
tralized system where theoidering,
c;ftalogueing, etc . is all done at
the central library and librarians
at the branch library are only as
sistants in charge.
In either case a branel
involves a building, a librarian and
a considerable number of-books
kept permanently at the branch.

from 20 to 50 or more books scut
periodically from place to place.
These libraries may be made up
(a) In ficcd collections.
(b) Out of a general loan collec
tion from which traveling libraries
are selected to meet specific needs.
The fixed collections are made
up of the best popular books of
fiction, history, travel, biography,
sociologv. literature, useful arts,
fine arts and science. A number
of children's books are included.
These traveling libraries are
generally p u t i u charge of a
volunteer librarian. Such a collec
tion nia be kept three mouths, or
a longer time on special applica
tion, and then returned t o the
central library in ..exchange for
another collection. They should
be in charge of an interested per
son and be kept at a place centrally
located where people will feel free
These traveling libraries arc
usually shipped in strong packing
cases with the necessary supplies
for keeping records of circulation.
On the return of a collection to the
central library it is checked up, a
record o f circulation taken,
necessary repairs made, and then
the library is forwarded to another
