The Patient Reader

Library Review

ISSN: 0024-2535

Publication date: 1 June 1932


OF late, the desirability of public library authorities and their officials working out some method of supplying books to hospitals within their areas has been engaging the attention of the Library Association. The humane thought has struck someone that if a public library is supported out of the rates so that the ratepayers and other inhabitants of the area served by that library may enjoy the use of books while in their normal health, by how much the more should the said ratepayers and inhabitants not be cut off from that enjoyment when languishing in hospital with nothing else to do.
