THE Ninth Annual Report of the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust has just come to hand and it provides a most interesting survey of the Trustees' activities. Notwithstanding what has been said in previous reports, it must be clear to everyone that the library work of the Trustees, rather than decreasing, is assuming an importance which is very much greater than has hitherto been contemplated. The statistics given in appendix 1 of the Report are particularly illuminative, covering the work of twenty‐three counties and giving figures for maintenance cost in pounds, and the equivalent rate in pence, total issues, total stock, number of centres, number of readers, with total population of the area served. We hope to review this interesting publication fully in our May issue.
