THE close of the year has not been marked by any outstanding event in librarianship or bibliography. The reports that reach us show, however, that there was never a time in which the activities of libraries were so many and so much used by the public. It would appear that the apologetic attitude which has characterized the utterances of librarians when dealing with libraries publicly may now quite reasonably give place to a healthier, happier assurance that their work is good; and they themselves may go on stronger in the faith themselves. They have a long road to go before they reach library perfection and will need all their strength and faith.
