Excerpt from City of Boston: Sixteenth Annual Report of the Trustees of the Public Library, 1868The first of these, in order, is the Report of the Examining Committee [Document A.], a Committee appointed annually under the provisions of the Sixth Section of the Ordinance, consisting of one member of the Board of Trustees, and five citizens selected at large. The Committee for the present year arc Charles F.Bradford, Esq., the Rev. George L. Chaney, John S. Dwight, Esq., Samuel Eliot Esq., and Dr. J. S. Lombard, with Dr. Samuel A. Green, of the Board of Trustees, as Chairman. The questions discussed in their Report are of great importance, and will receive attentive consideration.Whether the Library service can be continued year after year in an institution of this magnitude without any temporary cessation for examination or repairs, is an experiment never yet attempted with a collection of books so largely subject to popular wear and its consequent deterioration. It is possible that the plan suggested, or some other that may occur, may secure that periodical oversight of the books required for cleanliness, order, and safety. The proposal will have the early examination of the Board.The conclusions of the Committee relative to the opening and lighting of the Bates Hall in the evening, will be found to be judicious. If any reasonable demand for the use of the books contained in the Bates Hall should hereafter arise, outside of the present arrangements for supply, there will be no difficulty in meeting the emergency.Both these questions have been discussed in successive Boards for a series of years, with the desire to do everything for the public, consistent with the conscientious administration of the Trust. The other topics of interest brought forward by the Committee, will receive attentive perusal from the friends of the Institution.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
