THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.

To ths Editor. . , Ji - Sir, —There arc a few questions relating to the management of this queer institution to which I should be glad to get replies. Perhaps you could furnish them,- , The questions are .these ; 1. Is the management of the library , - entrusted to a committee, or is it a strictly family affair 1 (a). Who are the members of the Committee or (b) the family, as the • case may be 1 2. Assuming that a committee exists, ' .does it ever condescend to render accounts to the subscribers, or to meet the subscribers for general business 1 3. Is an annual meeting ever held; if so, when did the last one take place ? 4. Would it nob be as well if the Com- >. mittee were immediately to . convene a meeting of subscribers, in order that something may be done towards making the library a credit to the town, instead of a disgrace ?—Yours, &c.- * Litkkarum Amator.
