BOOKS FOR FARMERS
Laws Should Too Enacted Establishing
Circulating Libraries -What Ne- .
braska Has Done and What
Ought to be Dona.
As civilization advances life be
comes more complicated. We have
relations not only with those in our
immediate neighborhoods, but with
those on the other side of the globe.
Questions submitted to voters for their
decision are sometimes purely scien
tific, and without books the voter casts
his ballot haphazard, and however
honest he may be, it as often goes for
the wrong as for the right. The read
ing in the city is far the greater part
confined to trash fiction that is with
out art and without purpose. In the
country the obtaining of substantial
books is an .impossibility except the
few that are bought outright. Libraries
of reference are unknown.
Those of us who took part in the
economic struggle which began some
twelve years ago know the straights
to which we . were put. The great
standard works on political economy
were absolutely unattainable, prin
cipally on the account of their cost,
and if the people had had the money
'to buy them, new editions would have
had to be issued to supply the demand.
In those days the farmers got what
books they could to aid them In the
study of the questions which before
had only been of interest to scholars,
but very suddenly had become of vital
interest to them. Little cheap pam
phlets, some of them sound and scien
tific, but 4 mosf of them worthless
trash, was all that could be obtained
What an advantage it would have
been to the welfare of this nation If
at that time there had been travelling
libraries containing standard work!
on political economy obtainable by the
voters? " 1 - - :..----....
The' following article on libraries is
commended to the readers of The In
dependent: , . . t '
Editor Independent: The' library
movement In Nebraska has reached
such proportions that it is fitting it
should once more claim the attention
of the readers of The Independent.
From . time to time during the last
four years, these columns have gener
ously been open to the friends of this
movement and it is only necessary to
note very briefly what Its progress has
been. The legislature of 1897 consid
ered a bill to create a library commis
sion and establish a system of travel
ling libraries. - This measure was in
troduced through the influence of the
Nebraska library association. It
passed one house, but was swallowed
up in some political vortex in. thr
other. Through the same influence,
practically the same bill was consid
ered by the legislature of 1899, and was
set aside by more important things.
The librarians had rallied to their
support a number, of the prominent
women of the state. But the movement
has been gathering strength not only
in Nebraska, but from sea to sea. All
over the country women, are studying
the needs of their respective states
in the way of library legislation. Dur
ing the meeting of the national feder
ation of women's clubs in Milwaukee
last summer, a sort of bureau for the
dissemination of information concern
ing the progress of the library move
ment was in operation at the Milwau
kee public library. This was consid
ered by many women the most success
ful feature of the meeting. Literature
was distributed, and a Nebraska wom
an addressed the federation on the
subject. Other Nebraska women wer
there and they improved their oppor
tunity to learn what the women of
other states have been doing to fur
ther the spread of the library spirit.
The Iowa women were there with co
pies of two progressive library laws
that they were largely instrumental
in securing the passage of. The wom
en's clubs of Kansas, Ohio and Min
nesota could make almost as good a
showing. The Nebraskans came home
determined to do all they could to
place Nebraska In the front ronk. In
their meeting last October, the Ne
braska federation of women's clubs
formally and unanimously adopted a
plan to secure some good library leg
islation in the coming session of the
legislature. A committee was ap
pointed of which Mrs. Belle M. Stout
enborough of Plattsmouth is chair
man, to execute the plan adopted by
the federation. This committee will
co-operate with the Nebraska library
association and any other organiza
tions which may be Interested- They
are sending out literature describing
the kind of legislation they consider
desirable and they mean to work sys
tematically to keep Nebraska from
falling behind her neighbors in edu
cation. Am I asked what the neigh
bors are doing that Nebraska must
look to her laurels? Well, Iowa is
spending $4,000 a year on a library
commission and travelling libraries,
and Minnesota is annually spending
$5,000 for the same purpose, and they
intend to ask the next legislature in
Minnesota to make it $10,000 a year.
Kansas has a library commission and
travelling libraries and Colorado has
a library commission. If Nebraska
doesn't make a move pretty soon,
Wyoming and Dakota will fall Into
line and fence Nebraska lnr Tn all,
there are seventeen states having li
brary commissions, and many more
having some form of travelling li
brary. Ohio spends $4,000 a year on
travelling libraries, Michigan has a
similar sum for that purpose, while
Wisconsin has $7,500 a year for a li
There are several things which Ne
braska needs in the way of library leg
islation and there are some forms
of legislation that most emphatically
are not needed. Anything that at
tempts to substitute a law creating
public libraries In school districts for
the excellent law which governs free
public libraries, now adorning the
statute book, is not only deplorable,
but vicious. Not that anybody objects
to school district libraries. It would
be well if each school district in the
state were required to provide itself
with a good library for school pur
poses, with a liberal interpretation as
to what constitute school purposes.
Our free text book law and other
school law? make these libraries pos
sible wherever there is any desire for
shcool libraries on the part of those
in authority. By all means, let us
supply every school house with every
thing 1n the way of books that is
needed to broaden and unify the school
work, but let us avoid making the
mistake, of hindering the onward
march o? the library spirit. I refer in
particular tc a bill which has been be
fore at least two Nebraska legislatures.
It seeks to render in operative our
present public library law by making
it mandatory upon school districts to
operate public libraries. The passage
of such a law would be detrimental to
the educational interests of the state.
The school and the library are co-ordinate
forces, and to subordinate eith
er to the other would be to injure both.
Each has its own field, and it is to be
hoped that Nebraska will profit by the
experience of New York, Ohio and
other states .and - never attempt the
costly experiment of making the public
library the mere side issue of the pub
lic school. Let, us develop them side
by side to the highest possible de
gree of perfection and usefulness. ;
As matters stand now, there Is much
to be desired in the way of construc
tive library legislation for Nebraska.
There are, perhaps, twenty towns that
have free public libraries. Most of
these are feeble institutions, strug
gling for life. Their means of sup
port are so limited that they can have
few new books and must get along
with inefficient, untrained service, or
none at all. What they need is a help
ing hand something to augment their
strength until such time as they can
Dress ahead with their own strength
some center to which they can go
for suggestions as to how to make the
most of their limited resources some
means of keeping in touch with the
scietiflc librarianshlp of the day. For
the hundreds of towns that have aa
yet felt no inclination to establish
public , libraries, there is certainly
needed some current that will awaken
public interest, and fan the library
spirit into life. ; And our rural dis
tricts, where there are neither librar
ies nor book stores their needs are
practically unlimited. . They ought to
have the privileges enjoyed by the
people in the cities if there is any way
of -elvins? thpflo tri'tripm. We havfl de
veloped ' our school s-ystem until there
Is an - unbroken succession from the
sod school house to the university
hut we have not. dnn snmieh. Youne
people who have never read a dozen
good books outside of their school
books, often present credits from high
schools and are admitted to the uni
versity. Their home environment has
not put good books, or any other kind
or books in their way, and they are at
a erfiat dlss.riva.ntaee therebv. The
cheap, gawdy books in the country
store are, perhaps, better than none,
but thev are bv no means eood enough
for the boys and girls of Nebraska.
No matter what the parents may be
carelesss, indifferent, ignorant, unfam
iliar with our language and civiliza
tion, or too busy to bother we owe it
to our state that no boy or girl In alLj
rsiehraska shall crow ud witnoui some
knowledge of how to use and love the
world's best books. .
To meet this situation the librarians,
the club women and others have stud
ied the way in which this problem has
been handled in otner states, ana nave
come to the conclusion that Nebraska
needs a free library commission. Right
at this point I need not stretch my
imagination much to hear, In rancy. a
protest from certain readers of The
Tnrfpnondpni. ' With some . reason.
doubtless, they are .opposed to "com
missions" on eeneral principles. Well
there are commissions and commis
sions. A library commission is not a
barber commission, for instance. What
is more, the worthy gentlemen wno
planned the constitution of Nebraska
wisely left the evolution of the busi
ness aparatus of the state to be de
termined by successive statutory en
actments. The business of the state
prows and we have to have somebody
to look after it. and it must be attend
ed to by experts in the various lines of
work. There isn't any way out of it
we have to have commissions. Uncle
Sam calls them bureaus and divisions
but we have to have them whether
we like it or not. The patriotic thing
to do ia to study some way to lessen
what we consider to be the evils of a
commission. People who object to
cnmmiRsions eenerallv do so because
they believe that such an arrangement
Is merely another name lor political
sinecure. The library commissions
over the country are not open to this
objection because none of them re
ceive any pay for their services. Most
of them are composed partly of ex
officio members. They are, without
exception, composed of high-minded,
public-spirited people and Nebraska
would fare as well as the best. With
the state superintendent, state librar
ian, chancellor and librarian of the
university, and one or two of the en
ergetic women appointed by the gov
ernor, all suspicion of politics or sine
cures is disarmed The only question
that remains is "What can they Ao for
us, and how much will it cost?"
First, the free library commission,
through its members and officers, can
Hva advice and council to libraries al
ready established. These libraries can
receive person, visits from some li
brary expert in the employ of the com
mission, and the librarians can get
help as to the best method of buying,
cataloging and circulating books, as
well as to every other detail of li
brary science and management. This
will save the little libraries a good
many expensive mistakes. The com
mission can publish a bulletin which
will out before these untrained li
brarians just the things that they most
need to know. A school ot instruction
for these librarians can be held when
ever, in the iudement of the commis
sion, it is deemed advisable.
Second, the commission can publish
the library laws of the state, and
cause them to be circulated where they
will be likely to help create a senti
ment In favor of the establishment of
public libraries. If requested, mem
bers of the commission can visit com
munities, and help the movement
along by pleading the cause of the
public library, When established, the
commission can still help these li
braries whenever requested to do so.
For the small library, with a mea
gre supply of books, and the rural dis
trict with none at all, the commission
can operate a system of travelling li
braries. For the study clubs in com
munities where books are scarce, the
commission can supply a few choice
books on a subject. Let the reader of
The Independent who lives out in the
sand-hills, -for Instance, picture to
himself the advantage to his neighbor
hood if the taxpayers of the vicinity
could borrow a library of fifty books
from a library commission for six
months. No further argument ought
to be necessary.
For all the educational forces of the
state, clubs, farmers' Institutes, state
societies of all kinds, the commission
can be a "lamp unto their feet" shin
ing out into dark places and making
the way clear for more books, better
books and the wisdom to use them
This work is carried on in Iowa for
$4,000 a year and in Minnesota for
$5,000 a year. "Are the children of Ne
braska worth as much to her as those
of her neighbors are to them?
Such of the readers of The Indepen
dent as approve of this proposition can
materially aid in its realization if
they will call the attention of their
representatives and senators to it and
express the desire to have Nebraska
join the bright sisterhood of seven
teen states that have already taken
