MEETING OF THE -I I-) BARRY PUBLIC LIBRARIES COMMITTEE, On Wednesday night a meeting of the Barry Public Libraries Committee was held at the Board- room, Cadoxton, when Mr. David Robert took the chair. There were also present Alderman Meggitt, Drs. O'Donnell and Lloyd Edwards. Mr. J. Lowden, Mr. C. J. Flowers, Mr. Llewellyn Williams (SOUTH WALES STAR), aud Mr. J. II. Hughes (secretary). After the minutes of the last meeting had been read and confirmed, the reports of the three sub- committees for Barry, Barry Dock, and Cadoxton were considered. Complaints were made that certain papers in the Cadoxton Reading Room were abstracted, and notices were ordered to be put up to draw-attention to the legal penalties attached to such offences.-Two bills were passed, one for 19s. for coal, and one from Mr. F. W. Taylor for work done at the Barry Reading Room for £ 1 Is. 7d.—The Library Sub-committee sub- mitted a report showing that they had engaged a room next door to the Holton Reading-room for the purposes of a Public Library; that counters had been ordered, and that shelves would be put up by next Monday. Before proceeding to appoint a librarian, it was mentioned that he would be required to act as secretary of the Public Library Committee and of the Science and Art Classes.-Alderman Meggitt proposed, and Mr. J. Lowdon seconded that the librarian should also be required to exercise a general supervision over the three branch reading rooms.—The proposal was carried. Dr. Lloyd Edwards and Mr. W. Llewellyn Williams dissenting, and on the proposal of Dr. O'Donnell, £5 was added to the Lir)rarian's salary.—Nine applications had been received for the post of librarian, the applicants being Messrs. R. S. McKay, Harry Inch, W. D. Stradling, E. F. Blackmore, S. H. Mountain (Barry), J. D. Davies, A. Westacott (Barry Dock), R. Kirtness, and Mrs. Huntley (Cadoxton).—Mr. E. F. Blackmore was unanimously appointed, to enter upon his duties immediadely. Mr. Milner's tender for the supply of papers for the three reading-rooms was accepted. Some dissatisfaction having been expressed with the list of papers received, a sub-committee, com- posed of Mr. D. Roberts, Dr. Edwards, and Mr. Llewellyn Williams, was appointed to revise the list. It was mentioned that £ 120 had been spent on books, and that there was zC 30 still in hand. The Library Sub-committee were authorised to pur- chase another £ 30 worth of books, so as to release the cheques for the full payment, which are now kept back at the bank. It was decided to wait till the balance-sheet of the Science and Art Committee was ready before deciding how much to vote to the Science and Art Classes.
