less fortunate among our people do
not take as much interest in their chil

should; therefore this free library will
afford an opportunity for many chil
dren and youths to get a fair knowl
edge of hooks, besides being helped
along other lines of useful informs
i tlon. The people in the community
look upon this effort of Mrs. Langston
j as u commendable piece of philan
