Parts of Cltr Are Aided.
Miss Edith Tobitt of the publla library
has issued a circular to school teachers
calling their attention to the 6,000 volumes
now In the Omaha collection In what Is
known as the "school library." These
books are for the use of school children
who live too far from the public library
to draw books In the regular way. For
their distribution each school becomes

tlon of pictures to be used In teaching
geography Is also at the disposal ot the
teachers and pupils. The number of books
Is limited to thirty-five for the primary
grades and fifty, for the grammar' grades.
Teachers are likewise granted special
facilities for getting the books they need.
Special cards are issued In addition to the
personal cards, and manual training teach
ers can have three of these special cards
while grade' teachers can have two special
cards. High school teachers are entitled
to tea special cards for school use. In addi
tion to these cards, tooks can be reserved
In the reference department of the library
for the use of classes for a period of two

ness Is being planned by. Miss Tobitt and
the library board, by which- homes In cer
tain districts will become .4ocl distributing
stations. The plan will be Inaugurated on
a small scale, with the hope It may grow
to be a regular feature of the library work

elded on, an employe of the library will
visit them at set times to give out and re
ceive books, and the collections will be
varied as the need and demand seems to
