Would not the cost of providing THE POSTAL, LIBRAJIY bo prohibitive? r A. Let us assume that one book per capita with proper means of circuUition would be an adequate library fje all the people. Again let us assume that for atr average of $1.00 per volume a suitalile collection of books canasi-purchased by the Government; This is a larger supply and a higher cost than for any public library now in eless ence iu Canada. The amount therefore required to purchase all the books for THE POSTAL L1BR.\RY would be last than $10,000,000.00. That is a comparatively small appropriation for the Government.

It is beiime to encourage prompt return of for tlie use of a book for 7 days. A charge of 5c per day might be made for ovef books. The fees could be paid by attaching ordinary stamps. Q. Need THE POSTAL LIBRARY' bo confined to the circulation of books? No. Lantern slides moving-picture films music records and other app-mrches societies schools lodges and instruction may bs; included and thereby provide pleasant occasions for homes c the like. Such service would ndd greatly to the enjoyment of life in rural con Again THE pOSTAl LIBRARY will elevate tho profession of Librarian 1 increasing demand tcv expert library service.
