CARDIFF FREE LIBRARY. The monthly meeting of this committee was held at the Town-hall on Monday, Mr Peter Davies in the chair. There were also present Councillors Proger, Trounce, Fulton, J. Ree*, Messrs Harris, Rondfeldt, W. H. Thomas, Seward, and Dr Vachell. town clerk, Mr Wheatley, was also presentT The balance at the bank was reported to be £23728 lOd. The science and art schools committee recommended the ap- pointment of Mr Farr as assistant teacher to Mr Bush at a salary of £100, Mr Farr to give the whole of his time to the duties connected with the appointment. The free library committee, how- ever, discussed the matter for a considerable time, and resolved to postpone tho cons'deration of the recommendation until fuller il formation was before them, and until some m )ro definite ar- rangements could be made with Mr Bush. The library subcommittee complained that the book- shelves in the new lending library were insufficient for the number of books to be stored. The chief librarian was directed to proceed with the prepar- ations for 0] ening the library as rapidly as possible; that the Indicator aystem" be aban- doned, and that the system in use at the Man- chester Free Library be adopted. A long dis- cussion took place on the amount to which the new free library and its contents should be insured. As the policy was running out, the town clerk had insured the building in the Sun Fire Office and its. contents for £10,000. This was considered insufficient, and it was resolved to insure the building and contents in two fire offices for £15,000. The Town Clerk stated that Mr Menelaus's pic- tures were already insured in another fire office, and they would not be included in the proposed policies.—Mr Fulton proposed that while the building was insured in the Sun Fire Office, the remainder should be insured in some office which contributed towards the cost of the fire brigade when a fire occurred at premises insured at their offices.—A letter was read from Mr G. C. Thomp- son, secretary of the Cambridge University Ex- tension Scheme, asking- for the use of the leoture- room at the new free libraty building for a course of lectures, with classes, proposed to be given during the present season, but the committee re- commended that application should be made to the mayor for the use of the Town-hall, as in for- mer years.—This was all the business.
