IN the admirable News Letter just issued by the London and Home Counties Branch as an introduction to its annual report, the remark is made that an association, however it may be energized by its executive committee, makes in the end just that progress which its members require. This is true, and if there are occasional criticisms of the Library Association and its work they are all to be countered by the question: What are we personally doing in the matter? The L.A. is not perfect; its new machinery has only just begun to revolve; there may be room for criticism—as for example the distribution of “honours” diplomas to a dozen candidates amongst whom very few have won any “honours” in the sectional examination. Time will adjust, perhaps. Meanwhile the L.A. is not asleep.
