Abstract

The English praise books and book‐lovers, and write magnificent prose about the liberty of the Press, but do not always try as much as they might to encourage the foundation of libraries or to foster the care of books. The State has often left libraries to individual initiative or to private benefactors; thus it is not surprising to find that, although as long ago as 1926 the official opinion was that ‘the school library … forms a very important part of the equipment of an efficient school …’ (Hadow Report on the education of the adolescent), no concerted action has been taken with regard to school libraries. There are books without accommodation and bookless library‐rooms; if a school is fortunate enough to have both a library‐room and a collection of books, it is rare to find a trained school librarian in charge.
