Cupboards and shelves behind the
glittering mahogany bars, which once
housed rowa of variegated bottles, now
shelter rows, of hooka of all sorts. The
former saloon has become, in many in
stances, the corner library for the serv
ice of the neighborhood.
In many places, former saloons have
been turned into stores in which have
been installed collections of thebest
sort of reading matter as branches of
the main public library or, a in com
munities which have lacked library
service, adjuncts to the library of the
nearest city. This extension of service
is encouraged by the American Library
association, in its "Books for Every
body" movement, now under way
throughout the nation and it has met
general approval. The enlarged pro
gram of the association purpose to
spread the doctrine of self-education
through libraries by opening avenues of
opportunity heretofore closed to a large
percentage of the people. It ia esti
mated that 60,000,000 persons in the
I'nited States to-day have inadequate
library service and to remedy this,
wlththe aid of other library agencies,
the association aims to bring the best
of reading matter within easy access
of every man, woman and child in the
country, .
Those in charge of the collections es
tablished in those places which were
once saloons report a large demand for
books, both fiction and on technical
subjects. Persons who have never had
much acquaintance with books are be
coming regular patrons and the cir
culation is constantly growing. Promo
tion of this oliHse of soreadinir Ameri
can ideals through self -instruction is
one of the principal aims of the Amer-1
ican Library association. To carry on
the work, librarians, library trustees
and friends of libraries are obtaining
a fund of $2,000,000 in May and June,
11120. Barre'B quota is $434.49. j
