THE PILOT, Southern Pines and Aberdeen. North Carolina
Southern Pines Library
Has Active Month
Attendance and Circulation Ex
ceed Same Period Year Ago.
—N*ew Booi(s Added
The April meeting of the trustees
of the Southern Pines Library was
held on Tuesday afternoon with a dis
cussion of plans and policies for the
summer months. The librarian's re
port showed an attendance during
March of 670, and a circulation of 946
volumes; both figures indicate an in
crease over the corresponding period
of last year. A feature of the library
service which has recently proved
very popular is the temporary mem
bership available to those who are in
town for only a few days. Such visi
tors, upon payment of a deposit, are
accorded full library privileges for
the duration of their stay; and at a
season when many travellers are
passing through the town, stopping
perhaps only for a week-end, this
special opportunity to use the li
brary has received a ready welcome.
The report of the book committee
was read and accepted, and the fol
lowing list of ten volumes was author
ized for purchase. These books will be
available for circulation in about a
