$127 Raised For Library
Library-minded citizens of John
ston County gave $127.00 to .the hi
brary Development Fund drive put on
during April and May by the Amen
can Library Association to raise
funds to maintain a representative
for libraries in Washington. Library
trustees of the County Library Board
and the town boards, members of the
library staff and Friends of the Li
brary as well as booksellers publish
ers and those directly connected with
the book business were appealed to as
the ones who best understood .the
necessity of extending library service
to all people. No general appeal to
the pubic was made.
Through the success of this pro
gram, ibraries will be able to main
tain a representative in Washington
who will help them obtain books and
library supplies and equipment that
will be released when demobilization
gets under way. The fund will also be
used to carry on a national public
relations program supporting the de
velopment of good library service for
all citizens. It will maintain relation
ships between our government and
our ibraries and help to foster a pro
gressive program ..for libraries
throughout the country.
