Sherarta •••••••••••••••••••••••••a any schools of the county have no libraries, and several schools that have libraries would be better oft with out them. The value of a good library ought to appeal to the intelligence of every patrun of the schools. The boys and girls are being taught to read and to think. What they think depends largely oil what they read. How im portant it is then that a good supply of the very best food for thQught be fur nished to them. The child that has been taught to read and to think, then left without guidance in the selection of ma ted il for thought, has been deprived of a most important part ol his education. This is an age of books. There are books everywhere, of every character, gcod and bad. To train a child to read and think, and then to place him in the midst of this almost infinite variety of lit erature, without the fortification ol an in telligent knowledge of what is good, is to invite destruction upon the work that -has been accomplished by the education given him. Give a child power to read and train ing in thinking, thoughts in varying pro fusion are certain to follow. These thoughts may not be healthy thoughts, nor the habits of thinking good habits— they are more liable to be the opposite, Unless care is taken. Theonlyv way to banish'urihealihy and uncl&n thoughts from the mind is to replace them with thoughts that are pure and clean. It is hfere that a well-selected school library shows its value. It furnishes food lor clean, healthy thoughts at the time when the enlarging powers of the child mind begin to reach out for material for thought. It turnishes the inducement for the formation of good-habits of think ing at the time when the habits are being formed. •The Pupi's' Reading Circle board of this state doing good: work in supply ing good reading lor the children of the state. 1 lie books tecomtnended by the hoard can be placed tu the hands of our bf\ and girls with the assurance that they will be ttgtfcr ^md "stronger after .routing then? thin before.
