THE winter months ahead promise to be as active in libraries as those of any recent winter. For students this and next month see the L.A. examinations and, as we write, more schools, whole‐time and part‐time, are engaged as seldom before. There are more meetings, too, and we have been encouraged by the effort in London to provide the fullest possible information of their times and places. Public librarians know that quite noticeable progress is being made with new library buildings, even if, as yet, few on a major scale have been sanctioned ; and there have been signs that non‐public libraries are developing. Those who believe in librarianship will have noticed that a Government Library advertising for a F.L.A. or an A.L.A., includes this, “Candidates must have had considerable experience (preferably technical) of library work.” Some may have glowed to discover that two thousand of us— “professionals and specialists”—have been thought to be worthy of a place in the new Who's who in librarianship. One more point, the new and pleasant library at Chaucer House will be open to us. There can be few more pleasant plans for a Studious off‐day than to spend it in this, with an interval lunch in the Members' Room where we are bound to meet other librarians. Why not try it?
