MOST librarians are, sooner or later, faced with the necessity of extending the library service to meet the needs of a growing town. The position of the central library is almost invariably in the centre of the town, and as the population increases the residential districts move further and further away from the business centre. To meet the requirements of the borrowers the library must move with them, and this is done by establishing smaller libraries in such parts of the town as the density of the population warrants.
