THURSDAY UVJE'G, JAN. 0, 1030. SEIWICE OF THK LIBKAItt' AND ITS COST. On the basis of the present estimated population oE Connellsville, which has been conservatively placed at 16,000, tlici cost of tho Carueglo Library during 1929 was an average o£ 70 ceula per inhabitant 1 . This, includes tho onMro expense of maintenance of tho institution, buch as'salar- ies, Janitor, electric light, coal, repairs, supplies, printing, insurance ant! inc'dcntttls, new books, periodicals and binding, tho aggregate of. -which was $ 11,081.i'3. During tho year t)2,882 volumes Avero circulated tor uso in the homes of the cornmunitj Reduced to averages this means that every man, woman and child had the- usa of at least six hooks, or that Hie entire stock o£ 19,554' books was iniclrculation practically flve tloies during tho year. The Circulation was roally greater atf there are approximately 1,800 boolcs of reference that do not leave the library, hem-e the number available for home uso was reduced to 17,700, ·which meant that they vere placed out among patrons an avorago oft more than live times in tr,o course o! tho twelve month. - Ou tho basis of this service to patrons, through tho free use of books tho Library supplied, each average family o£ the city had '30 volumes loaned to It during the year. Had these books been purchased, at an average of $1.25 per volume, which ·was the cost of each of the 1,183 books purchased by tho Library, the book bill t£ each family would have be on $37.50. Buying at retail Individuals would havu had to pay considerably more. But providing books for home uso is onb' one ol the serviccj tho Library performs) ft-r the people- of the community. During 3020 19,210 persona visited the Library and inido requests of tho members of the iitF as to where they could obtain certain information ni the reference volumes that are rotalncul on t.ue shelves. These figures show that all the Inhabitants visited the Library more than ones last year. In addition, thure vero perhaps several times as many persons who, having sonic familiarity with reference books, did not ask the librarians for assistance. They w e n t direct to tho reference and reading rooms, obtained what, they desired and left. No rt cord AVUS kopt ot the number of sue li patrons, it being practically impossible to do io. Another service) performed by the Library, and one that is very highly appreciated by patrons, is responses to telephone calls for information relating to u wide variety of subjects. This often requires considerable/ timo but it is gladly given by the- members of the stall'. The cooperation of the Library and tho schools is of such a character that, as Superintendent Smith states, it "has become ahnobt Indispensable," and "it Is dUHcult to estimate its valuo." In tho absence of tho Library the Board o£ Education would have to establish a library in the. schools, at a considerable first cost, which would become a largo annual charge on the district Cor the services of a librarian and assistants and the constant replenishment, of books as worn ont and tho purchase of nw volumes retjnirod to keep the stock up to date. In view of tho variety and kind of services tho Library Is performing for the peopln of the community, its cfist of malntonanc'o at uu average of 70 cents 3Xi' inhabitant per year, becomes inconsiderable. No other public institution of Connellsvillo give/a a service that is comparable cither in variety or coat. Any rousonublo amount, up to $5,000, to spond for new books each year could bn mado available for tho Library w i t h o u t increasing tho total cost o£ the Institution more than 15 cents por inhabitant. Funds for this purpose are (ho greatest need, but none rwould moro largely increase tho laellltieS of the Library and mako iia services still more Invaluable, to the poopio.
