TO‐DAY, when so much is astir in the library world, it is desirable that we should try to envisage the future possibilities of public librarianship. For if we have not a fairly well‐defined objective and clear ideas of what a real service should be there is a danger that we may do things which will need to be undone, that we shall miss something vital, or stop too soon.
