"THE HOUSE THAT SERiVJCE BUILT" Anyone - who doubts that Cass county residents are avid readers need only talk to Miss Mary Holmes, chief librarian of the Logansport .public library, to have those doubts- dispelled. Miss Holmes would tell the doubters that of the 35,220 persons living in the area served by . the library, 27,927 are registered card holders. . This figures out to .79 per cent of the population, as compared with an average of 36 per cent. To add strength to these figures, she would point out that although the library ranks twenty-first among the state's 245 libraries as to population served, it ranks ninth in circulation, with more than 400,000 books loaned each year. This represents a per capita circulation of 11.3 books each year, which is-a pretty fair amount of reading in Miss Holmes' opinion. An ave'rage o£ 1,316 books were loaned each day. The library now has a total of 128,839 volumes and obtains between 4,000 and 5,000 new books each year. Last year 4,333 new books were added to the collection! Of that number, 234 were received as gifts and the rest were purchased. During the same year 3,456 books became worn out and were dis-| carded. Miss Holmes explained | that the books cither have pages! missing or become too dirty from use. Books that are discarded usually are replaced with another copy, she added. The library also subscribes to 11 newspapers and 263 periodicals, has a collection of 481 phonograph records and 69,711 feet of microfilmed newspapers. Nine movie films are received each month and are. available to clubs, schools, church groups and other organiaztions. Last year 334 films were loaned out and were seen by 14,742 persons. Two projectors for viewing microfilm are available at the library, and a music room is available for listening to records. In addition to the "main library at 616 East Broadway, a branch office is maintained at Galveston. About 12,000 books are kept on deposit in city schools, and other deposits are maintained in Adarns- boro, Deacon, Lake Cicott, Twelve Mile and Young America, as well as at Logansport's two hospitals. A mobile book trailer holding 1,200 books visits each county school monthly and stops at seven villages in the county to serve adult readers. Villages served are Metea, Clymers,. New Waverly, Lincoln, Hoover, Georgetown and Lucerne. The trailer is on the road about 150 days each year, traveling more than 5,000 miles. Another feature of the library is its summer program to encourage reading among children and adults. Last summer, which marked the 36th consecutive year of the program, more than 2,800 persons took part and read 34,942 books. Operating the library requires a staff of 14 employees at the main office, plus librarians at the Galvestou branch and the two hospitals. In addition t» 'Miss Holmes, the staff consists of Edna Holden, county librarian; Janet Carr and Jayne Jones, catalogers; Lois Spoils, county assistant; Lois Benner, Jean Ann Flory and Judy Long, circulation assistants; Joyce Handy and Ilene Swartzel, clerks; Evelyn Glasson, bookmobile assistant; Guy Minks, custodian, Edna Sims, assistant.' custodian; and Joan Schrrtidt, page. Mrs. Bess Crites is librarian at the Galveston branch. Hospital librarians are Mrs. Hazel Knauss, Memorial; and Mrs. Huth Gordon, St. Joseph's.
