TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—-In reply to your correspondent, “Reader,” in Friday’s issue, the library magazines come direct from Home by case in the mail steamers. Owing to the war the service has been somewhat irregular, and, there being no steamer from Melbourne via Bluff adds to the delay. The magazines are promptly placed on the table as soon as they are received.- Possibly a little time might be waved by getting the magazines by p<xst, but the extra expense w-ould be considerable, and the money is better spent in having more books. Patrons of the lending library may obtain any information required from the' catalogue by applying to the staff. All new books added to the department are displayed on a special stand for the convenience of readers. There is also a suggestion book available, and the committee will be pleased at all times to receive suggestions for the comfort and convenience of the readers. Suggestions made are ve-ularly considered by the committee in the ordinary course. I have reason to know that our library has been receiving its newspapers since the war broke out earlier than have other local institutions. This is merely one of the minor chances of war.—l am, etc., R. S. Black, Chairman of Committee, Free Public Library. October 17.
