Usefulness of the Alliriijht Library
OFFICERS NAMED FOR YEAR
Report of I ihrai inn Carr SliowsTbnt 8,071
Persons Now Hold Cards Untitling
Them to Tukc Out liooks-I'luns
for tho Future.
At the fourth annual meeting of the
trustees of the Albright Memorial li
brary held Tuesday ex-Justice Alfred
Hand was chosen president; William T.
Smith, vice president; Henry J. Carr,
secretary nnd librarian; Henry IJelln,
The estimate of expenses for the
maintenance of the library during the
year submitted by Mr. Hand was ns
follows: nooks. $2,940; salaries, $5,lfi0;
Incidentals, $2,700; total. $10,800.
Treasurer Helln presented the follow
ing statement of cash on band: From
citizens' subscription, $IS.2i); from city
appropriation, 770.H4; petit cash, $2S6.::ti;
A comprehensive report of the work
of the library was presented by Libra
rian Curr. It showed that during the
year 1SH4 2,012 persons registered at the
library for the purpose of availing
themselves of Its privileges nnd at Un
close of the year 8.074 cards were In
use. The smallest issue of books on any
day during the year was 222, and the
Growing in I sef illness.
Since the library opened there has
been a constant Increase in the num
ber of those who avail themselves of its
privileges, nnd It is still reaching out
and extending Its usefulness. When it
was llrst opened a few years ago it had
1(1,000 books, and that number has since
grown to 2'j.OOO. Librarian Curr said
yesterday that less books would be
added to the library this year than last,
as the fund subscribed by the citizens
of Seranton is almost exhausted and
there Is now only the money to be re
ceived from the city to make use of.
"We shall endeavor," said Mr. Carr,
"tobuild up the Industrial and neleintilic
side to the library during the next few
years. Tliie is n great Industrial com
munity whose future must be closely al
lied to Its inuuufiictoi'U s of all kinds.
The men employed in these establish
ments come iiere In search of Informa
tion on the particular branch of me
chanics or science they ure engaged In
or that Is tributary to It. and it shall
be our effort, as far as possible, to put
within the reach of all such searchers
after knowledge all the Information we
Purts Arc Well Supplied.
"In the matter of general literature
nnd fiction the library Is fairly well
supplied at prese nt, and a good portion
of the money v.e will expend dining
the nT-xt year or two will bo in the di
rection of bringing the Industrial and
seientillc portion of the library up to
a high plane of usefulness.
"We already have the nucleus of a
medical library," remarked Mr. Carr,
"pointing to the Throop collection in
tin- galliy. "which may develop into a
most valuable feature of the library."
"What are your plans for extending
the work of the library?" asked the re
"Well, as to that, I would like to see
a distributing agency connected with
the libra ry lo?ate l In Giv. a ltid;?
Providence, Hyde Park and the South
Side, but such additions would increase
the expense of the library about $5,000,
and as the city has many Increased
appropriations to meet this year we
made no request in our estimate to
councils for money to extend the work
