Annual Report of Library
The annual raportof the North
Platte public library for the year end
ing May 31, 1914 was submitted to the
city council at their meeting Tuesday
evening. This report shows a proper
0U8 year and that the peoplu have- been
taking advantage of the opportunities
afforded by the public library.
There are now 3040 volumos in the
library and of this number 1682, were
loaned by the Y. M. C. A. after its
close. The number of borrowers on' the
list is 1849 and the average monthly
circulation Is 1200. Tho visitors record
for the last two months averaged 425
per month, which is a fair average'' for
The expenses for the year were yery
light on account of the expenditure for
books being cut down with the loan of
the Y. M. C. A. books. The income of
the library is barely enough, to meet
expenses and the same amount that was
levied last year was asked for this year.
With more funds the library cou(d. do
much more extensive work, but not in
crease was asked. ,
The financial report shows a total, ex
penditure of $1423.13 and a balance' of
$402.13 on hand as against $514. Oh at
the beginning of the year, The total
receipts for the year were $1825.37.'
The monthly report for May showed
a decrease in circulation, for the entire
month. Only 900 books were loaned of
which G01 were adult books and 299
were children's books. About fifty new
volumes were added during the month
and since the closing of school the cir
culation is picking up.
