I HAVE chosen as the title of this address “The Quality of the Library Service.” The title occurred to me while I was reading about the exploits of some airman or another, who had succeeded in travelling from somewhere to somewhere else some seconds faster than anyone had ever done before. I thought of the motorist who boasted to a friend that on a certain trip he had touched 60 miles an hour and had saved seven minutes. His friend replied: “What did you do with those seven minutes?”
