tj vUeeh at Z/our JLibrary By LYDIA MARGARET BARRETTE, Mason City Librarian Park" the beautiful wooded tract of 15 acres, one mile , 2 Clt .y limits on the north bank of Lime creek provided the to the city report which came to the library this week. The Mowii es i a the sun dappled meadows remind us of Mrs. C. H. McNider whose gift to the city this park is. «,m, y ln the mayor's report there is a significant sentence: The average citizen does not* '• realize the various services which his tax dollar buys." *t Th .® item in the report for which the library is most - grateful this year is in the city solicitor's report which tells of the completion of revision and publishing of the ordinances. These ordinances revised to 1949 are now in the reference room at the library to answer questions that come in especially during the evening hours, when the city hall is closed. The_ last page of the report has some interesting history data that will be of use in the library. The citizens of Mason City will feel repaid if they spend an hour or 2 with the report. Gets Special Mention Yesterday an attractive little folder came to the library called "Friends of Libraries: Who They Are: What They Do," in which the Cerro Gordo group is chosen with 2 other groups from- among the 125 in the United States for special mention in the paragraphs on what Friends do. The purchase of More people use Morton's When it rains it pours Plain or iodiz«d he bookmobile Is the item men- ioned lor Gerro Gordo county. The Carnegie: library of Homestead group, Munhnll, Pcnnsyl- ania, sponsors an annual series of plays for boys and girls and las given as much as $1,000 for he purchase of children's books. Riverside, 111., with a population of only 8,042 has a group with a membership of over 1,200 and those Friends sponsor a lecture series for their little town and donate at least $800 to their li- irary. . Of course, the Friends of Li- Draries here was organized to ex:end library services, particularly .0 areas near by without such service or with service not as adequate as they would like to have. It is done on a cost basis and many good small co-operative plans were tried before the Cerro Gordo farm people decided they wanted library service just as good as the towns and made plans to get it. The theory about public library friends is that the group recognizes as its function the focusing of attention, 'not only on the services and facilites available, but also on the needs of the library. Zona Gale Zona Gale, the Wisconsin author who is well known for her novels and plays, has written a paragraph with which this little folder closes: "IVIay every community which has no such group organize its library's friends. This will multiply the functions of the library, will distribute the too heavy burden now borne by a few. It will multiply the library's power to interpret life to the living, to spread the simple and sovereign message of libraries—that life is more than that which we believe it to be. There is no greater service." The libraries in Cerro Gordo county would probably have had as many friends if they hadn't been organized but they have accomplished much more in cooperative effort because they have seen. Clear Lake and Mason C.'+v vork closely together and the "arm folks choose which library hey prefer to use under the ar- •angement with the rural library )oard. The bookmobile will give "oint service in rural areas and ri Mason City and small towns and costs are kept as low as possible in both libraries and for the rural people served by them. These rural people often ask for books on automotive fundamentals. There is a good new one by Irving Frazee. Farm women may be interested n "Home Management in Theory and "Practice" by Irma Gross. Two new business books are "Public Relations for Retailers" and "Professional Salemanship." "Must We Hide" by Lapp discusses the atomic bomb and United States defenses. On Dude Ranches "Hi Stranger" by Carhart is a complete guide to dude ranches and will be reminiscent of the good vacation days some people from this community enjoyed. Two books on color are "Basic Color" by Jacobson and "Color Planning for School Interiors" by Pleason. The largest group of books cataloged this week is in the social sciences. There are 37 sociology books to put on the shelves this week. They range from "Better Race Relations" and "Discrimination and National Welfare" to rather specialized subjects such as "The Discretionary Powers of School Boards." "Time for Reason about Radio' is by Lyman Bryson, who has done so much for adult education It takes up American radio as a public question. In 1946 for the first time a major network began a series of informal talks to use its own facilities to tell listeners about the problems and possibility of radio. This book makes he talks and discussions available o those who didn't hear them or leard only part of them. Like the broadcasts themselves the booh nvites readers as well as listener 1 ? o join in intelligent criticism and comment. The titles of some of the other sociological books are "Declining iberty and Other Papers," "investment in People," "Leadership n a Changing World," " Public Opinion and Foreign Policy," and ''Our Vanishing Civil Liberties." Psychology books are circulating heavily these days. A good part of the demand is from student^ but parents and leaders will welcome such books as "Children Have Their Reasons," "Through Children's Eyes," "Appraising Vocational Fitness" and "Personality and Successful Living." Students will grab "Outlines of Psychoanalysis" by Freus and "How to Think Creatively" by Hutchinson. Designing Iowa Farm "Manual for Riders" by Durrell will interest quite a group ol young people here. "Economics of Industrial Management" is a technical business book and will be found on the business shelves in the readin? room. "Genius and Monocracy" 1 by Frank Lloyd Wright brings to mind the fact that he is now designing a farm home near Independence, Iowa. Among the 9 history books thi week there is one on Palestine by Parkes, quite a full history of th American frontier in "Westwar Expansion" by Ray Allen Billing- on of Northwestern university nd in the American folkways cries, "Niagra Country" by 'Graam. Tv;o new garden books arc Joyful Gardener" by Rothery ncl "Garden in the Modern Land- cape" by Tun nurd. v^4M*i*K^ •- J> ^^*-> ^ O%<« "r "•*• ff V "* ^J** -^ 'T'*!
