SPECIAL emphasis in this number of THE LIBRARY WORLD is placed upon the county libraries movement. As the recently‐published Report of the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust shows, the number of adoptions of the Libraries Acts by the county councils is now very large, and the others appear to be falling rapidly into line. The importance of the movement to every member of the library profession cannot be gainsaid, in spite of the fact that every County Council has not faced the question with statesmanship or vision. The movement is so good in itself, so prophetic of larger possibilities, so useful at present to rural dwellers, that whatever modifications may come its continuance and expansion are as certain as anything terrestrial can be.
