The ticket case was broken into, a ped­ dler's sample case, that had been left there, wai also broke open and the contents scattered abont tbe ' room, bnt nothing of value was taken'. \^Sabflcribe for the SIOKAI. has been installed which increases very much the value of the library as the various books are more easl- y accessible. It also* aids the li­ brarian in keeping a record of books drawn out and in keeping track of the books in the library. The library contains a large number of reference books in his­ tory, science,'travel and biography. There is also a good: list of stand­ ard fiction. These\books are for the use of the people of the village wbo assist in the support of the li­ brary by paying the school taxes. The people should avail themselves of the privilege of using the books. In checking up the books before recatalogueirg them, it was found that a large number of books could not be'found. They were either lost or worn out. It may be pos­ sible that there are books in the homes which have been overlooked, and which would help to complete our lists. The school would con­ sider it a great favor if the parents would look through their books, see if they have any belonging to the school, and if any such should be found, kindly bring or send them to the library.
