CO-OPERATION BETWEEN SCHOOL AND
25. each. The two
PRINCIPLES AND METHODS OF MR. ALBERT E. ROBERTS, in his article bearing this
the teacher and librarian mutually, and it is a pleasure to a
librarian to read a teacher's appreciation of the good work of
from the article that, while the writer has seen with the
understanding eye the work of the American librarian, he
which, for many years past, has occupied the attention of
that the co-operation between the librarian and teacher in
this country is as complete, or that the work done here for
has a well defined cause.
The English library supplies a
much larger adult reading public than the American-the
intensely practical nature of the American, as suggested by
Mr. Roberts, probably accounts for the fact that he is not so
great a reader of books as the Englishman-and the English
Shalott and other Poems. English siderably less than one-third of that accruing to American
libraries. The English library is financed by a penny rate
[Immediately. which, in a town having a population of a hundred and fifty
thousand, produces approximately £3,500; the American
[Immediately. library receives a product of a tax of one mill on the dollar on
the value of property, and in a similar town has an income of
over £12,000. Hence, our fortunate cousins have greater
Narratives from the “Principal Navigations" of Hakluyt. Edited by E. J. more opportunity of developing their most valuable work with
children. But, even in crippling circumstances, much work
for children is done in England, and it is fair to assume that,
equally unaware of it.
One must not expect to find in England the palatial library
buildings one sees in America, for reasons just given, and
possibly because the civic pride which marks the average
American does not, as far as my experience goes, exist to the
of most English public libraries, although they have improved
of recent years, are frankly utilitarian and ugly.

has been in operation in a large number of libraries here for
nearly twenty years and is gaining in favour rapidly. Mr.
Roberts is probably aware of this, for one of the best open
own borough of Islington : and, to name a few libraries in the
London area only which use this system, one may mention
also Finsbury, Cripplegate, Southwark, Walthamstow, Herne
Hill, Hammersmith, Hampstead, Kingston - upon - Thames,
Wood Green, Croydon, Bromley (in Kent), Twickenham, and
Hornsey, and there are others.
To begin with, nearly every English public library has a
department exclusively reserved for children. The older
libraries have a large alcove set aside for them ; the newer
and reading rooms for them. At Cardiff, Islington, and
Chelsea, for example, the children's rooms are some of the
most handsome and attractive in the building, spacious, well
lighted and furnished, decorated with suitable and attractive
pictures, and provided with the best books. At Cardiff the
receiving in the children's hall a lesson from their teacher,
[Immedintelv. illustrations which the library possesses for this. and similar
purposes. At the conclusion of the lesson the children sat
individual reading. At Islington, when the room is full of
children, as it is every evening, it is a constant practice for
the choice of books and the objects of reading. The Croydon
libraries have regular object lessons in the use of the libraries,
