All Libraries In Kossuth Share J5, Due to an expansion of the services of the public libraries of Kossuth county, library service is now available to aU rural users without charge. This service is the result of the county tax appropriation granted last May and effective for the year 1967. Prior to this, rural residents have been required to purchase library cards annually, permitting them to borrow books only from the individual library from which the card was issued. Card fees varied from one library to another, but inasmuch as common practice permitted entire families to check out books on a single card, rural library service was not self-financing by any means. The tax appropriation of 1/3 mill has not only done away with the nuisance of the library card, but has allowed the expansion of library services to all rural residents, as well as to residents of all towns maintaining their own city libraries. These residents may now enjoy the privilege of borrowing books without charge from any library in the county. With all the library boards of the county working to improve their libraries, most residents may not feel the need of seeking service outside their own communities. At the present time, however, the Algona Public Library does maintain a most adequate supply of reference nuterial, and the new regulations permit the utilization of this service as well as the services of any other library in the county, by all above mentioned residents of Kossuth county, without charge. Several libraries in the county, including Titonka, Bancroft, Lu- Verne, Wesley and Whtttemore, are affiliated with the Area Extension Service at Mason City. A few others are taking steps to qualify for this service, which automatically supplies a rotating supply of books to each member library. Libraries with this service receive a substantial amount of new reference material from the Iowa State Traveling Library. As an added service, special requests for any book will be filled by the Mason City library, though adequate time must be allowed. The Area Extension Service also supplies help to new member libraries in cataloging and sorting when needed, and provides such extra services as summer reading program materials, book mending instruction, etc. Long range planning for a number of the smaller libraries of Kossuth county includes added reference material, increased number of hours open, assistant librarian service, development of adequate card filing systems, and record lending services, as well as numerous other possibilities. Library boards are working to m?Jce this expansion of service a reality as soon as funds become available. As a special bonus for extending library service to the county, Kossuth libraries have received a $5,000 federal grant which must be spent on books. Since all the libraries in the county have met the minimum standards necessary to share in the federal money, all will be receiving an equal amount. Tuesday, Jan. 24, 1967 Algona, (la.)
