Its Mission to Fulfill
A traveling library, as its name
indicates, is sent from place to place,
being loanel' to each community, or
station," for, say, two or three
months, with the. privilege of renew renewal
al renewal for another similar period. There
are usually several kinds of libraries
of about 50 volumes each for in
stance an assorted collection for gen
eral use; a special collection for de
bating, agricultural or other kind of
society; a school collection with
books suitable to each grade; a col-
ection gotten up to fit some need of
the hour, political or social, or of
some particular locality. Any one of
them may be had on application,
filed usually with the secretary of
the state library commission, about
which I shall speak presently, in con
clusion. The North Carolina law re requires
quires requires that this application be sign signed
ed signed "by the president and secretary
of the library association, by the of
ficers of a farmers' union local, or
by five tax payers." Borrowers in
many states pay transportation

To look after its library interests
in general, but especially its rural
extension work, nearly every state

law- creating the commission in
Xorth Carolina in 1909 states very
briefly, but clearly, the general scope
of the work for the commission:
"1. To encourage and aid in the
establishment of new libraries, and
to improve and strengthen those al
"2. r To serve as a center for the
collection and distribution of infor
mation relating to books and li
"3. To supply the rural popula population
tion population with library facilities by means
of traveling libraries."
As a general rule, there are, say,
five members of the commission,
elected by the legislature or appoint appointed
ed appointed by the governor and receiving
only actual expenses in attendance
They elect a secretary, not one of
themselves, who is a salaried officer
and really does the work outlined by
the commission. His headquarters
are usually in the state house. In
one or two instances the state li librarian
brarian librarian (in Alabama, the secretary
of the department of archives and
history) serves as secretary, but this
of course, would not be feasible
when the work becomes heavy.
South Carolina -is one of only 11
states in the Union that so far have
not enacted a library commission
law The other states are: Arizona,
Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mon
tana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklaho Oklahoma,
ma, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Wyoming. Is
it a "goodly company" for a progres progressive
sive progressive state to find itself in? These
states have one-eighth of the popu population
lation population of the United States and only
one-twentieth of the libraries.
Thirty-six states have passed such
a law-, beginning with Massachusetts
in 1S90. It has been the general ex
perience, as can be readily1 judged!
from the bureau of education's re-j
ports, that the establishment of ai
library commission has been the pre precursor
cursor precursor of great and rapid library
building and extension in each state.
uch, for example, has been the case
in North Carolina, where, owing to
the energetic propoganda of the
commission, public libraries are
springing up all over the state,
school libraries and others already
established have taken on new life
and recently the traveling library
system has 'been launched on a legis legislative
lative legislative appropriation.
The First Step
It would seem, therefore, the part
of wisdom for those interested in the
subject of public libraries to work
first for the creation of a library
commission for South Carolina, the
influences of which, like water from
some mountain source, would re refresh
fresh refresh and enrich the lower levels. To
meet the objection of the practical
economists. I would suggest that
some public official, like the state
brarian, might act,at first, as secre secretary.

states to secure the passage of a
commission law, which was made
the subject of a special committee

that the prime movers in influencing
legislation, thru arousing public de demand,

"from a few weeks to 14 years." It

about the desired result.
