Public Library Report, 1956.



GENERAL REVIEW.
The year under review was one of satisfactory progress. The staff as a whole
rendered very loyal service; and a considerable increase in membership and
activities both in the Central Library and its ten points of service show that
these departments have been extensively used, and the service much appreciated.

ORGANIZATION.
At the end of 1956 the Free Public Library was operated through ten different
points of service, namely:-
(a) Headquarters-Kingstown.
(b) Eight Branches- Georgetown, Marriaqua, Calliaqua, Layou, Barrouallie,
-Troumaca, Chateaubelair, Union Island.
(c) One Deposit Station at Bequia. /

The Library is managed by a Committee of five members. Membership
for 1956 was as follows:-
Hon. A. C. Cyrus-Chairman.
R. G. John, Esq., B.A., Barrister-atiaw-Deputy Chairman.
Miss J. Buchan, M.A., Dip. Ed.
W. H. Lewis, Esq.
C. G. Huggins, Esq.

The Committee held one meeting during the year to transact the Library's
business.

HOURS OF OPENING.
The Library is open to the Public from 9.30 a.m.-8.00 p.m. each week-day
except on Wednesday when the hours of opening are from 3.00 p.m.-8.00 p.m.
Public Holidays are observed. The hours of opening of the Juvenile Library are
as follows:-
Monday-Friday ....* 12.00 noon 1.00 p.m.
3.00 p.m. 6.00 p.m.
Wednesday ..... 3.00 p.m. 6.00 p.m.
Saturday ..... 9.30 a.m. 12.00 noon
3.00 p.m. 6.00 p.m.

STAFF.
The Staff authorised for 1956 was:-
Librarian ...... Miss A. K. Kelsick
Assistant Librarian ...... Miss T. M. Cox
Junior Assistants ...... Miss E. R. Smith
Miss V. E. Lewis
Miss L. N. Allen
Messenger ..... Mr. Leon John.

During the year Miss L. N. Allen, Junior Assistant, passed the Entrance Exam-
ination of the Library Association which she sat in December 1955. The Assistant
Librarian was unable to attend the Annual Training Course for Librarians, held in
, Trinidad this year, due to the fact that the Chief Librarian, after a period of 41/2
months leave commencing in July, resigned from the post with effect from 30th
November, 1956; thus causing the following changes in staff:-
(a) Miss T. M. Cox-Assistant Librarian, to act as Librarian.
(b) Miss P. F. Anderson to act as Junior Assistant Librarian.
A fairly high standard of efficiency was displayed by the staff, and it is hoped
that with increased facilities for proper training in Librarianship, there would
be further improvement in the quality and extensiveness of the service rendered
by this department.

MEMBERSHIP.
Adult membership is free to all residents of this island. Transients are
permitted temporary membership on payment of a deposit of 10/-.
















Children between the ages of seven and fourteen, are eligible for membership
in the Juvenile Department.
The total number of readers on register in the Kingstown Public Library
at the end of 1956 was 4,295. Of this number 2,287 were adults, and 2,008 children.
The Rural centres showed a registration of 3,122; Adults-1,489; Juvepile-1,633.

BOOK STOCK AND CIRCULATION.
The total number of books acquired during the year was 1,755; adult-1,025;
juvenile-730. Gifts of books from friends and ,members have been again very
welcome. The acquisition of these additional books brought the total book-stock
6f the Library up to 14,158 volumes; and with the withdrawal, or discarding of 526
volumes as unfit for circulation, the book-stock stands at a total of 13,632 volumes.
The total number of books circulated to readers at the Headquarters during
the year was 25,388; :adult 13,994, Juvenile 11,394.
The Classification is as follows:-

Headquarters. Non Fiction Fiction Total

Adult ..... 4,557 9,437 13,994
Juvenile ..... 1,874 9,520 11,394

Total ..... 6,431 18,957 25,388


Books issued to the Rural Centres this year amounted to 6,191 volumes. The
distribution was as follows:-

Adult Juvenile Total

Bequla _.. 217 220 430

Total 3,249 2,942 6,191

Two hundred books were bound at the Reliance Printery this year.

PERIODICALS.
The upper storey of the Public Library building houses the Newspapers and
Periodicals Section. Here the Public is provided with a wide selection of daily
newspapers, in addition to cultural British and American periodicalss. The ,loss
of the support of the Ellis L. Phillips Foundation, New York, which supplied
about 90% of the American Magazines was deeply felt, however the Library's
own subscription to fifteen (15) of the most popular of these magazines was
greatly appreciated by readers. -The British Council continues to donate sixteen
(16) British periodicals.

BRANCHES.
The Branches continue to function satisfactorily; one great drawbqclj hpw-
ever being he t paucity of the book stock. One newbranch was opened at Chatgau-
bpairt'this year, and we.hope to establish branles at Canduan. and Biaqpu :in
1957.

and place on record an expression of sincere thanks for this co-operation which
facilitated their work ii every way.
