THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
' . To the Editor. Sir, — After a storm comes a calm. The public of Ashbiirtoh had Library on tho brain a short time ago, and now we are in a dead calm. I have read in ypur journal ‘about the proposed stone Library building we were to see shortly erected, also about the stone to be given gratis, and about an entertainment which was to take the pnblic by storm, in which Mr Pickwick was to cut a prominent figure. As no one seems to be moving in the matter I would suggest that the Library Committee should pull themselves together and do something to forward the Library movement For instance, a series of , entertainments might be organised to extend through the winter months—or what is left of them. Fortnightly penny readings -would, I think, be popular, and, conaidoring.the object, would, be pretty sure to draw good houses. But as the winter is slipping away, if anything is going to be done it ought to be done quickly.—l am, etc., Argus.
