SUCCESS OF RURAL SCHOOL LI BRARIES IN NORTH CAROLINA. Not only docs the rtirul school li brary develop the reading habit__it develops it along the right lines. Since, as Emerson says, "the ancestor of every action is a thought," how important it is that the literature that is to provoke thought be wholesome and well balanced! In our city li braries, fiction has much too large a place, many women and young people read nothing else. But while these rural libraries contain a few great novels, the chief effort is to develop a proper appreciation of choice works of science, travel, nature-study, his tory, poetry, biography, and mythol ogy. Even if the ehild formed the "reading haffit" outside the school, it would still be worth while for the State to have these libraries for the sole purpose of turning his new-found love of literature into right channels of truth and beauty. Nor have the beys and girls been the only beneficiaries of the new movement. It has opened up a new world for many of the parents, and has done incalcuable good in contin uing the education of persons too old or too poor to longer attend school. The superintendent of schools for Dunham county says that the books are used almost as much by the par ents as by the children themselves, and the Pitt county superintendent says that the libraries have caused hitherto indifferent parents to become deeply interested in reading and in the education of their children. "The peculiar value of the school library," as the New York Evening Post right ly observes, "lies in the fact that it educates the younger generation as well as the older." All in all, the North Carolina plan has proved a strikingly successful in novation, and we are moved to won der that our educational leaders did not long ago perceive the value of ru ral library work, or, realizing it, did not think of the ease with which it may be conducted in connection with the public school. We are now not far from the time when no house where children meet for study,whether in town or country, will be regarded as even tolerably equipped without a small collection of the best, books.— From "Rural School Libraries in North Carolina," by Clarence H Poe, in the American Monthly Review of Reviews for September.
