Because risidents do not patronize the evening service of the Public Li-^brary that has b^en instituted in this city, it is possible that the opening of the Library during Tuesday and Friday evenings from 7 to 9 o clock wall be discontinued, it is announced. ' At present considerable discussion is going ^ on in the various organua-tions as to thRi possibility of|4recting an individu ah structure fof a public Library and already it is announced that there has been more. than one generous offer of a suitable site for the same. Those interested in this project, however, are seriously considering the . possibUity of incorporating a Library Building within a comm.unity structure which would provide a suit-abel meet;>.ng place for the various organizations to meet and have their social functions. It is realized in va.. ious discussions that this would entail considerable expenditure but the general concensus of opinion is that it would be the only possible for a suitable building to bze made financially possible. ^^ Committees of the three ^organizations will meet sometime in the new year to; discuss the matter and decide the course of action. The present location of the library is a room in the Grammar school and i', • / it has been stated that this room will not be available for the purpose» as Ions as the school authorities will need the room owing to the continually increasing registration of new^ pupils. Mrs. Ruth Davis is the^ librarian in charge and states the the library room is Open on Tuesdays and Fridays in the afternoons from .2 to 5 and in the evenings from 7 to 9. More patronage is necessary to maintain the even-inpr schedule it is said. a gAN MARIN,O makes her bow to the New Year wdth a feeling of confidence and responsibility. Much has. been accomplished in the ¡past Vear aiid in preceeding years, but the opportunities arid duties of 1929 will be even greater. As a residential city San Marino has made tremendous strides during the past year and the types of homes,j, al well as the high standard of residents, who have come to riiakeitheir homes here, have provide^ material .foundation for a comfortable; and happy living. More and more of this type of residents will come here during the next year, we hope, Xo iind perfect conditions of •climate and environment, as well as peace and contentnicnt.
