That the tastes of the reading- public
are changing from books of fiction to
the more solid works on educational
subjects, and that there Is a constant
ly Increasing- demand for books for
home reading. Is stated In the annual
report of George F. Bowermn, Ubar
lan. just made.
Besides the main building at the cor
ner of Eighth and New Tork Avenue,
there were 158 sgencles engaged dur
ing the past year In dispensing books,
and "through these agencies," ' Mr.
Bowerman reports, "s30,5!" volumes
were circulated Into the homes of
readers as compared with 601.717 vol
umes for the previous year, a rain of
48,810 volumes, or 8 per cent. In ad
dition. M.56S mounted pictures were
circulated, an Increase of 12.448, or 30
per cent" The report continues In
part as follows
"In each annual report It has been
possible to record a reduction In the
percentage of fiction circulated from
that ot the previous year. Last year
the reduction was from CO per cent to
58 per cent. The total reduction in
eight years has been 2i per cent; that
Is. from 84. the percentage In 1904, to
58. The ambition is held ultimately to
reduce the percentage of fiction circu
lated by the library to SO or even less.
The factors that have produced tile re
sults thus far achieved include. In addi
tion to the possible changing tastes or
reader;, the personal help and guidance
given by assistants at the information
desk and elsewhere, the progressive ex
tension of the open shelves, the display
on such open shelves of selected groups
of books on various subjects, frequently
changed, and especially the potent sug
gestions cf tbe book case labeled "Some
Readable Books. '
The fifth ear's experience In conduct
ing the industrial department In a sepa
rate reading room has only served to af
ford more-convincing proof than ever of
its complet utility. Although there has
not bees as Isrgr a proportionate gain
in use over the previous year as has been
shown in earlier reports, yet the Increase
has been sufficient to make tt desirable to
move the department to larger quarters.
