The turmoil and uncertainty inseparable from a General Election are now over, and there is some hope that the programme enunciated by the old Ministry will be continued by the new. Had the political complexion of Parliament changed it is possible that many of the schemes of reconstruction would have been subjected to radical changes; and as the current of affairs gave some hopes of wider library consideration we are glad that such change has not been made possible. We may now soon expect the report of the Ministry of Reconstruction's Committee on Adult Education dealing with Libraries, with, we trust, its national recommendation of more generous finances, a higher recognition and a wider sphere of usefulness for these institutions.
