At the meeting of the executive board )f the Vermont Federation of Women's Clubs it was voted to work out some plan whereby money could be raised by the clubs to pay the original purchase price of the book-wagon, which has been operated by the free nublic library com aiission this summer. The car was paid lor out of interest which had accumu lated' from a fund left to the commis sion several years ago, to lie used to fur her the interests of small libraries, but his gift from the federation will release his money so that it may bo used for ther special purposes, not covered by he regular state appropriation.

In l.s;0, five years after the estab ishment of the free public library com mission, the federation members felt that he commission should have a traveling library department, and until the legis ature met in 1JM)0 the federation raised noney so that eight traveling libraries .vere bought and loaned.

The interest of the federa ion did not cease with this achievement, lowever, and for several years since hen sums of money have been voted to be used by the commission in the pur hase of school libraries.
