LIBRARIANSHIP has its own laws of supply and demand and we cannot afford to ignore them. Firstly, granted adequate publicity, libraries will, in the long run, attract those for whom they cater. Secondly, those for whom they do not cater will stay away. How obvious they sound! Yet it is certain that many of us, and many of the authorities upon whom we depend for funds, have failed to appreciate their blatant simplicity. In most communities there are sections of the public we would very much like to serve, yet do we always seriously and sufficiently set out to serve them?
