Gifts to the Library
A consignment has been received
at the Library from General Beaver
containiug eighty-one volumes.
These are the gifts from Bellefonte
friends of the Library as follows:
Judge James A. Beaver, thirty
seven vols. including Encyclopedia
of Engineering, Standard American
Encyclopedia,Dr. S. Weir Mitchell’s
Judge Ellis L. Orvis ’76, Library
Edition of Balzac, thirty-two vols.;
Col. E. R. Chambers 'Bl, Memoirs
and Letters of Charles Sumner;
Also Volumes from Gilbert A.
Beaver '9O, Thomas Beaver ’9B,
and Leary Stuart and Co., Phila
Other gifts during the past week
include volumes and pamphlets from
Frank C. Foote, of the Freshman
Class; George C. Butz ’B3; Andrew
Carnegie; The German Consul Gen
eral of New York; Dominion of
Canada, Patent Office Gazette;
Cassella Color Company; ~ George
A. Fuller Company; Brooklyn In
stitute of Arts and Sciences; Boston
Museum of Fine Arts; The Penn
sylvania Railroad System, etc.
It is noteworthyth at among these
donors are Alumni and Students of
the College. A long and honorable
roll of gifts could be made up from
the Library accessions coming from
graduates of the College, and if the
Alumni Body once realizes the
urgent needs of the Library, we will
soon have a permanent and more
adequate book fund. Alcoves and
subjects ought to be endowed, so
that year by year and systematically,
the Library may grow.
Of gifts from students, the roll is
not so large, except as the under
graduate body by a co-operation and
interest are giving the Library a
quiet, homelike, student atmosphere.
It is confidently hoped, however,
that the present Senior Class will in
augurate the movement and leave a
permanent and growing memorial by
THE STATE COLLEGIAN
founding and maintaining a Class
Fund for the purchase of Books.
Such Class Funds have made many
a Library. The sacrifices of friends,
the personal element renders such
gifts truly educative. A Library is
not merely a collection of books,
but personality, individuality speak
ing through books.
The Library is anxious to secure
the following: La Vie’s Vols, XI to
XIV, 1900 to 1903 inclusive. Y. M.
C. A. Handbooks. Vols. I to VI
inclusive, also Vol. VIII. Annual
