Ninth Annual Report of the Town Library Committee.

:

The Library Committee present their report for the year ending on the first Monday in March, 1861.

The amount of money received by them is as follows: The balance of last year's account,

$113 91 The town's appropriation for 1860,

287 00 Fines collected by the Librarian in 1860,

5 23

$406 14 The amount expended has been : For 331 volumes purchased,

$348 27 For binding and covering books, and stationery, 6 95 Leaving a balance unexpended, of

50 92

$106 14 The whole number of books now belonging to the Library is 3,105. The number added during the past year has been, by purchase, 331; by donation, 12. No book has been lost during the year, and all but six volumes were in the Library room the time of the annual examination. The number of ratable polls in Concord in the year

1860 was 560; and the appropriation for the maintenance and increase of the Library which the town is allowed by law, and required by contract to make this year, is $280. More books bave been added to the Library during this year

than in any previous year; and on an average they have been books of greater value, and better bound. The use made of the Library by the people of the town has also increased from last year.

The alteration in the Library, by extending the room so as to include within it a part of what had been the schoolroom of the Intermediate school, which was suggested in our last report, and authorized by the vote of the town, has been accomplished during the winter; and the town has now a convenient and handsome room, capable of containing eight or ten thousand volumes, and sufficient for the probable increase of the Library for the next fifteen or twenty years.
