Book Description:
LIBRARY ESSAYS PAPERS RELATED TO THE WORK OF PUBLIC LIBRARIES ARTHUR E. BOSTWICK, PH. D. THE H. W. WILSON COMPANY NEW YORK 1920 PREFACE Tlie author of these papers began his service in librarianship in April, 1895. He celebrates his silver jubilee by gathering them into a single volume. Be fore becoming a librarian he had worked for many years as teacher, editor and journalist, and the use of the pen having become second nature, he took it up in behalf of libraries and librarians, somewhat sooner, perhaps, than experience would warrant. However, the papers reflect to a certain extent the progress of library work during the past quarter century. A. E. B.
