LIBRARIAN STEVENSON Delivers Interesting Ad-, dress At Opening of Car-', negie Library. The Carnegie Library at Columbus was dedicated Thursday and Burton E. Stevenson, of this city, was the principal speaker at the exercises. The State Journal thus reports Mr. Stevenson's address: "Mr. Stevenson's address was awaited somewhat eagerly, owing to his reputation as a successful novel ist, as well as his position as head of the Ohio Library Association. Af ter his Informal start, he gave a fine, enlivening address on the meaning of public libraries, saying, among other things: ' 'Now that the doors of this library are open, what is it going to mean? Is it going to be a show place, one of those that we can point out to visitors and say, 'This is our new library; it cost over a quarter of a million"? There is a little habit in Columbus of treating your public buildings, penitentiary, etc., in that way. Don't do it with your public library, or at least do something more than that. Though I hope none of you will be Inmates of the other hullriines. vnu ran nil hp Inmntoa nf I this ' " 'Be proud, not so much of the building as of the books. The building is only the shell. The kernel Is inside. " 'The value of the library to you depends pn yourself. The librarian can provide the bill of fare. He can provide for those who relish weak tea, or those who want roast beef, of Soott or Dickens, or those who like the caviar of Henrik Ibsen. He can cater to all these; but he cannot make you eat, and it wouldn't do you any good it he could. He can suggest, saying for instance, 'Just as an entree with your Mary Jane Holmes, try a little Trollope.' If he is wise, tactful, and patient, as Mr. Pugh is, he can improve your taste till the insipidity of Mary Jane rHolmes won't satisfy you. But he can't make you come to the table. Pertiaps'you don't care for books, and perhaps you don't care to have your taste changed. ' " 'Shut the door in your own face if you will, but don't shut It in the faces of your children. There Is no one that the librarian would rather see coming in the front door than a boy or girl. Children never say, 'Where are the latest novels?' I wonder if you realize what qualms of nausea every librarian experiences every time he hears that question. There are thousands of people who never read any other sort of book. Read! Why they don't read it! They Continued on fourth page. The Commencement at the Waveriy High school will be May 23. There are 13 graduates.
