The major problem in the library is still that of accommodation; until we have a room which can serve as library only and not as a classroom also, we shall not be able to set out our books and pamphlets as we would like. Nevertheless, Mrs. Musil and the library committee have been working hard on catalogues, and the library is ready for removal into its new room as soon as the new building is completed.
Towards the end of last year we received the books which the Education Department made available. There were about two hundred of them, including the fifteen volumes of Chambers' Encyclopaedia, and a ten-volume set of "Popular Science". Other non-fiction books covered a wide variety of subjects and it is hoped that we will eventually have a stock which meet any demand for information and research.
Fiction purchases have been made from the proceeds of library funds, and have included "Jane Eyre", "John of the Sirius", "The Sword in the Stone" and others.
Thanks are due to the library committee, consisting of Rosalind Cole, Geoffrey Litler, Richard Wheeler, Joan Andean, Dee Anna Steiner and Judith Parris.
