' " ! I am Interested lit, the proposalof a tax Uvy on the j taxable a>ropor4y oUttldo of citlea and town* to be u*ed for library porsjotas. And I Ilka the idaa of a county-wide taxation 10 all llbrarla* will b« treated alike. If we hav* a county. wide appropriation library service wJ|l be available to all rural residents, With a Vast supply of books to suit many raiders' ' Every child wherever he or she may live should have Ithe wonderful exerietice of visiting a library and be introduced ,to the world of books and learn library manners as a part of .their growing up. I recall how special the library was to me, ithe vast treasure of books, the pleasant librarian, and the posters. When 1 was a child pMr library posters told of the "Goop" a person whom no one wanted to be lijte. A goop did not take jcare of books, but stained them with lolipops and dog eared ! the pages and laid them down on their faces. A goop did not ! appreciate the opportunity of borrowing books and a Goop had jnp library manners. 1 Whan our local Unitary came into boing and was operated solely en volunteer help, I especially loved to give 1 service on Saturday, as many children came that day and I , wished we had; many mere books for them. i Thinking back to the many, fine persons from our neigh- jbor townships who contributed cash for our first working funds, ' books and countless hours helping to get the library organized, JI feel sure they will be amendable and; urge this library taxation so each library will i grow stronger and have a more ade- I quate supply of boQkV to serye the patrons. i We should net ^on'iider,] this. -tan in terms of money 1 burden, rather consider whet so small expenditure from each i tax payer will do for u«, To our youth, the future citiiens of | our community, and to us in the adult group, the many hours of pleasant relaxation reading books of history, science, pure j good fjetion r travel from eur armchairs, well one could go on ! and on. Our children introduced to reading good books will go on cultivating this taste and be better citizens for it. National Library Week is coming up April 16 through the 23rd. This is teaching career Month and three books for future teachers of junior high school age are Miss Mac by Dolin, j.Keoni, My Brother by Melson, and Great Women Teachers by i Fleming. : '• ;'••'• '•"••••' ':'•"'' .••"''•• s '••' •.•"' '' April I* also National Hobby Month.
