Abstract

WHEN the Public Library was in its infancy it was looked upon as being a mere storehouse, and the librarian a distributor of books. The librarian of today, however, must not only guard and preserve the books in his charge, but make them and their contents, as far as possible, accessible to all those who desire to consult them.
