More than half the books which circulated during December — 6,352 — were juvenile books, while 8,627 were adult books. The breakdown between fiction and non-fiction was about even, with the circulation of non-fiction books running slightly below 50 per cent. Averaged daily attendance at the library during December was 195. A total of 179 books were acquired by the library during December, Miss Olson reported. She said that information about the care of pets was among the most sought-after at the Austin libray the past year. Among requests have been some for books on the care of dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and various types of fishes. "Many patrons left town for Christmas vacation and forgot to have their time limit extended," the report reveals. Many high school and college students forgot and left their books in their lockers in school while the biggest majority just plain forgot with all the holiday activities. Notices were mailed out which is a costly proposition du? to the increase in postage rates. "The two-cent fines are hard to collect BS the fine Is levied only to encourage the return of library material on time and not to provide « sour ?. of rev Many students are penalized by refusing them books until all material Is returned or Until they pay for the lost article, Many 'Ibrarles have Increased the fines to three and four cents a day overtime. "The two-cent fine is probably the last survivor of the early 1900 era when a cup of coffee with all the refills and a bus ride were five cents. The increase does help to have the books returned on lime but who is going out to collect these fines? Many books the last month which were kept past the due date have deprived other patrons of the orivilege of the use of the books when they are needed badly or when they have had the time to use them, "During the Christmas season many students were home from schools and colleges and did a great deal of research during that period. Junior College stud, nts were studying and reading all during vacation and in the evenings the reference room has been crowded." At Monday's monthly board meeting the Library Board accepted a gift by Mrs. Gladys Emerson in memory of her mother, Mrs. Thomas McFarlane. It is to be used for some spe cial volumes or objects for the proposed addition to the lib rary. 3 DONORS TODAY Hospital Seeks to Maintain Stock of Scarce '0' Blood 42 persons attending home nursing classes, 316 hours donated by staff aids, completion of a first aid class at ths Salvation Army, planning for the bloodmobile visit the last week chairman, reported the successlul in January, 142 students complet- Dr. Lovel Smythe, new St. Olaf Three donors with type O negative blood were recruited by Mrs. Edna Riskedahl of the Mower County Red Cross this morning to provide a stock of blood for emergency needs at St. Olaf Hospital. , , port when both his legs were slash- i aunching of his drive in the com j ing beginner swlmmlng under in ., *>spital patiiologist and director ed by a propeller blade. bined rura , solicitations Monday structlon o{ Mlss Janet Townsend.
