Abstract

IF you are as tired hearing about the function of the library as we teacher‐librarians are of hearing about the function of the school I shall do well not to make any reference to it: for it seems that if there is a wave of juvenile crime, the school is not fulfilling its function: if business men cannot get typists to add and spell accurately, the school is not fulfilling its function: if road accidents increase, if the churches are empty, if the landworkers are drifting to the towns—the school isn't fulfilling its function. Frankly, one looks forward to the time when with the help of the county libraries the school will begin to shoulder all its responsibilities!
