THE PUBLIC LIBRARY.
TO THE SDITOB. Bib,—With your permission I should like through the medium of the Press to draw the attention of the Public Library Com* mittee to the inconvenience and annoyaneo I to the visitors to the Publio Library caused by the late oleaning up of the Beading room m the morning. Not occasionally but every morning it ia very annoying for readers to be poked about all over the room; from one plaoe to another, just at the very moment when they are deeply interested m reading. I wonld suggest that the oleaning and the filing up of the papers be oompleted before the time of opening the roomi to tfie publio or elße open the reading room at ten o'olook instead of nine o'olook; In lha Poblio Beading Boom, Ohristohuroh, everything ia cleaned and squared up before the doors are opened, and the doors are opened an hoof earlier than they are m Ashburtbn; there iq lees work to do here, and an hoar more' time to do it m, and tho same number of peyiona. to do theVork, bo that I oan't Bee why we Bhould be behind Ohristohuroh m Bq6b, a, sm.aU matter ap ■ the above stated annoyance, I should alia like to suggest a little more regularity m turning on the gas of an evening. It ia not very pleasant to have to tit m the dark for sometime! upwards of an hour waiting for someone coming to turn the g«q on. No one cornea, you get disgusted, you go away showering all the blessings unagmeable upon the town clerk and all his satellites. I musk . . ,* ""*-* the town clerk everyoredit for certainly guv .. .A * t t»_ the Bplendid order the papers *>Z S*™ W since his aoceßsion to the offloej it is a grew improvement on tho old system. Formerly »I you wanted a oertain paper it would very likely take you half an hour to find, besidei being a great annoyance to \hz T e&d«a. Bitting round the table reading, m fact, it was simply disgraceful, the newspapers could not have been better mizedilj) 0 they had bean pat tsrough a threshing maohiha. Thanks for ttie improvement oh the old style. Hoping to tee' a little farther improvement aa suggested above. Iftmeto., ' ■. ttasuvißJ Hampstead, December 18th 1888.
