WRITING at the beginning of the New Year, we wish our readers prosperity and advancement in it. The past year, in spite of industrial commotion, has been a good one for librarians on the whole, although great progress, in such circumstances as the nation found itself, was impossible. There was, however, no serious set‐back anywhere, and there were hopeful indications. Amongst these were the stirrings towards getting libraries for themselves of the smaller urban areas. Finding themselves a part of a county library scheme, they have asked: Why cannot we have our own library? Whatever the answer may be—and the question has shown in many cases a desire on the part of the questioners to control their own libraries—the county movement has quickened the pace considerably.
