OUR appearance in mid‐month may rob our New Year greetings to our readers of first bloom, but they are nevertheless hearty for their prosperity during 1922. We believe the year will be a good one in spite of the immediate fog that covers public finance and trade. The country is undoubtedly on the way to recovery, and libraries will share in the advance. At first there will be the proverbially British assaults on the things of the mind, but the future is with the library movement. It has more friends now than at any time in the past generation, and our circulations, registration and attendances are greater than ever before. A vast public lies behind public libraries. It is true that it is unorganized and inarticulate, but it exists, and perhaps librarians may be able to do something to organize it.
