Such a person often needs book* that will be used only once, which It would not pay the new Alton library to buy. In that case an expert librarian will be able to find out where the material Is located and through an arrange* ment between libraries secure tht books. The nearest -sources are the State Library In Springfield or the library of the University of Illinois. Books can be borrowed from the Library of Congresa which secures a copy of every book published. With a good library, the most advanced work can be done In Alton just as well as In New York City.
