Report of County Free Library Sign Committee.

The "Sign" Committee humbly and re- spectfully submits another report.

The real secret of our trouble in supply- ing the signs was not discovered until November 1, when the Chairman visited the Chicago office and talked with Mr ►Simmons, the president of the Enameled Steel Sign Company.

She found that the company were job- bers, having the work done in many enam- eled steel factories. Our piece of work was contracted for with a Pennsylvania factory which, ever since the placing of the order, has had great difficulty in get- ting and keeping skilled workmen. (They say our sign is the most particular they have ever done.) They are near the munition factories and their workmen are daily invited to better wages in the muni- tion plants.

They only made this the excuse for delay until last September, when they refused to fulfill the contract with the Chi- cago company, reserving all their working force for their larger less difficult orders.

In direct conversation with Mr Sim- mons (the correspondence through their Pacific Coast agent had complicated rather than simplified the matter) it was apparent that he could place our future orders with another factory and that he

vol. 12, no. 1]

COUNTY LIBRARIANS' CONVENTION.

could promise satisfactory workmanship and reasonable delivery.

Of course the prices are greatly ad- vanced except for the unfilled part of the original order.

This is the new schedule :

"If 100 signs are ordered and shipped in the lot price to be $2.30 each.

If 250 signs are ordered and shipped in the lot price to be $2.06 each.

If 500 signs are ordered and shipped in the lot price to be $1.94 each.

Prices net f. o. b. factory, signs to be same as those we have been furnish- ing you and screws to be charged for extra.

These prices are for immediate ac- ceptance and subject to market changes in the future.

Signs to. be delivered in about three (3) months from receipt of order by Chicago office.

Unfinished original order to be filled at original price. "

There has been some talk of using a suit 'sign giving the name of the branch, size to be 3" by 12". The price will be $2.95 each f. o. b. factory. Each sign's showing a different name accounts for the high price.

Mrs Frances Burns Linn,

Chairman.

Report of Forms and Blanks Committee.

At this stage in County Library devel- opment it is important that statistics should accomplish two things they should show uniformity and should indicate the growth. Perhaps more statistics are needed now than will be later. Figures seem to help greatly in organizing and developing and in making arguments foi more funds.

Now that we are developing so greatly in regard to school library service, should not that service have a separate count distinct from a community branch, which may or may not be in the school building? Should they not at this stage of develop- ment be counted as two branches ? How else can we show that community service is given through a certain number of cen- ters and school service through a certain number, and how else can we compare one county with another when both have the same number of branches but one serving community alone, the other both school and community through a branch? This

may not be the final decision but for the present, to bring out the development, this plan which is outlined on page 592 of July News Notes of California Libraries, has been adopted.

As to the date of establishment of a branch it is counted that a community branch is established when all arrange- ments are perfected and a school district branch as established on the date the dis- trict joins.

It is very difficult to decide definitely what statistics are essential, but the points to be brought out are those which show the activities of the library and the tend- encies of its growth and use. For this, we need to know

Receipts and itemized expenditures.

Accessions and withdrawals

Books and other material shipped to

and returned from branches Number and kind of branches Number of cardholders Use of books, magazines and other

material Special requests, assistance received from State Library and other inter- library loans

More work has been done by the com- mittee on forms and blanks than the re- sults show. It is a difficult thing to decide on a uniform blank which will apply to the needs of the varyingly different libra- ries, and at a period of county library growth When new developments are con- tinually occurring.

At the County Librarians' convention at Sacramento in January, 391G, a group of interested county librarians meeting informally with the committee decided upon the following :

Choice between

(1) Ordinary accession record

(2) Record showing summary of ac-

cessions

(1) Ordinary shelf-list record

(2) Combination accession and shelf

record

Work is being done on the statistics sheet.

Anne Hadden,

Chairman.

NEWS NOTES OP CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES. [Jan., 1917

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES— QUARTERLY STATISTICS, ETC.

All libraries are listed except elemen- tary public school and church libraries and those which belong to private indi- viduals. They are arranged alphabetically by place under counties and counties are arranged alphabetically. To determine the county in which any place is located see list following these introductory para- graphs.

Those libraries are marked with an asterisk (*) which are not free to the public for either loan or reference pur- poses.

Libraries marked with $ are United States depository libraries ; those marked with § are depositories for the Official Gazette of the Patent Office ; those marked with || are geological depositories ; those marked with J are Library of Congress card depositories. This information was revised in March, 1916.

Branches of the county free library re- ceive supplementary library service from the State Library free of transportation charges with the exception of those branches where the name is in italic. When the branch has a reading room, it is indicated by r.r. in the list of branches under county free library.

The months are abbreviated as follows :

January Ja February F March Mr April Ap May My June Je

July Jl August Ag September S October O November N December D

Statistics are printed for the quarter. In order that the figures for circulation may be uniform, current magazines are included in the total whether reported that way or not.

An effort is being made to have the statistics uniform in reference to number of branches. Any distributing point through which service is given directly from headquarters is counted as a branch. For example, in a school with several class rooms, if service is given directly to each class room separately, each room served is counted as a branch. But, on the other hand, if a school district has joined and both school and community service are given from one location, such service is counted as two branches.

Blanks for October, November and December statistics were sent to all li- braries, except county teachers' libraries.

in December. Statistics for county teach- ers' libraries were taken from the annual reports of county superintendents of schools on file in the office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

There are in California 88 county free libraries (35 iu operation) ; 3 library dis- trict libraries ; 4 high school district li- braries ; 134 libraries supported by city taxation ; 55 towns or districts with free public libraries that are included in county free library service (23 under sec. 3; IS under sec. 16; 14 under Pol. C. sec. 4041) ; 66 law libraries, of which 55 are county law libraries ; 58 county teach- ers' libraries ; 357 libraries in educational institutions, of which 6 are universities, 7 colleges, S normal schools, 271 public high schools, 65 private schools and other institutions ; 45 miscellaneous institution libraries and 66 association or society libraries ; 33 subscription libraries. In connection with the above libraries are 2444 branches and deposit stations.

There are 175 library buildings, of which 157 were gifts, and of these gifts 144 are from Andrew Carnegie.
