SCHOOL NEWS NOTES
OF LAUREMS COUNTY
The Schools, Teachers and
How to establish a Bhool library:
Whenever the patrons and friends of
a public school raise by private sub
scription the sum of $10.00, the
county board of education will appro
priate $10.00 from the money belonging
to the district asking for the library,
and $10.00 from the general county
school fund, the county supt. will then
make application to the state hoard
of education and that hoard will re
mit to him $10.00. This gives $40.00
in all. Of that amount $10.00 must be
spent for a suitable bookcase, ami the
Other $30.00 for hooks suitable for
the school children. The trustees and
teachers will select the hooks and send
the list to the county supt. who will
order the books at once. The hooks
are purchased In Atlanta and come
very cheap. A list of books to select
from may he had on application at the
office of county superintendent of ed
There are only a few schools in th"
county that have not already estab
lished school libraries, and it is hoped
that the remaining few will take steps
in that direction at once. It is very
important that children read good
books. The teachers should encour
age that part of their education. Most
of the children are reading where they
have the library. In a great many
places they have read almost all the
hooks. In such cases the trustees and
teachers should enlarge the supply of
How to enlarge a library: When the
children and friends of n school raise
by private subscriptions the sum of
$r>.00, the county board of education
will appropriate from the funds of
that district $f>.00 and make applica
tion to the state board for $5.00, giv
ing a total Of $15.00. The hooks will
then be selected by the teacher and
trustees and the list sent to the conn,
ty superintendent who will order the
books. A great many of our libraries
ought to be enlarged since the child
ren have read most of the books they
now have, it is a good plan to ?et
the children to raise this library mon
ey. They will gladly and quickly do
p with the encouragement of the
teacher. When they raise the money
each little fellow reels that the library
is a product of Iiis own efforts and
lie will naturally read more and take
better care of the hooks. To encour
age this very important work among
the children tin; county supt. lias <lc
aided to offer a prize to each school
that will establish or enlarge a li
brary during this school session. The
plan is tills: The children must raise
the money. The teacher will assist
ami advise them. The teacher will
take the names of each child who
hrings in money for library and the a
moiinl each one brings. These names
and amounts will be sent to tho coun
ty supt. when the required amount is
raised, and the boy or girl who brings
in the most money to the teacher for
the library will be given a prize. This
prize will he a nice book suitahle to
the age of the child. The name of
the school, the list of hooks ordered,
the mime and amount of each child
who contributed, with special mention
of the one who wins the prize will
he published in The Advertiser. Lets!
sec what school and what child will
win the Ilrst prize.
