S. OF A NEW LIBRARY, READING ROOM, & PHILOSOPHIC INSTITUTION. MERTHYR TYDFIL. THE Managing Committee of the Merthyr Library respectfully beg leave to invite the attention of their Fellow-Townsmen, and of the Gentlemen connected witti this town and neighbourhood, to a project which they have for some time past had in contemplation. Literary Institutions are natural developments of the march of civilization; and are both the products and instruments of sound social progress. Among these Public Libraries necessarily occupy a prominent position. Such Jjr-tit .tions naturally attract to themselves the most brilliant intelligence, and the more cultivated minds of their respective localities. The members therefore, from the superiority ofiUeir mental and moral characters, and from the greater soundness, variety, nd extent of their information, naturally become the leaders of thought in their several circles; and in an age whose every movement :md agency tends to widen the area of political power, and when dangers, from crude views and iil-ciip ested knowledge, increase in proportion to the exteution of popular influence, it become s the bou nden duty of wise and thoughtful men to increase the number of such influential and beaeficial agents to aid and encourage all Institutions that have for their object, to purity aud elevate the minds of the people at large; to rentier the best Works in every department of Science aud Art easily accessible to all classes of the community; and to diffuse a knowledge of the most substantial, instructive, and healthy literature, of past and present times, among the teeming masses of populous localities. Actuated by these motives, aud with the assistance of the Ironmasters and their Fellow- Townsmen, a few zealous peisons founded the MERTHYR LIBRARY in the winter of 1816 from that time forth tIn Institution has not only maintained its ground, but has also been steadily pro- gressive and self-supporting; its regular members now exceed one hundred and twenty; the shelves contain upwards of two thousand volumes of the most approved Works in Science, Art, History, Poetry, Fiction, and General Literature; these are all rendered accesible to the humblest readers at a charge of only Eighteenpence ,per Quarter, or rather less than Three-half-pence per week; and the Comufittee have the satisfaction to observe that the value of the Institution is so far appreciated, that fro u twenty-five to t.Hlrty volumes are taken out nightly. The leading News- papers of the day and several of the most aoprovedvwcekly and monthly periodicals are regularly laid upon the Reading Room table. But the usefulness of the Institution is limited by the wfriit of space. Deterred by the failure of more ambitious projects, the original promoters coutented/tlieafselves with renting a comparatively small room. This has now proved inadequate to the rpquirqpents ot^uie Institution, and of their nightly crowds of readers; their book-cases, which occupy allWie ajfnlable space, are insufficient to contain the books already in tiie Library, aud wMch ai^^lKftddp increasing in number; for the same reason, they are unable to use a Set of Gl»Ms,Vafi^TelQKope, a very godtl Microscope, and other instruments, the use of which tfrey liajre acqi\Ad bj^the amalgamation with them of the George-town Philosophical Society, fthiu ;ed/inWPfcii2 lindjff iey are unable to display their Maps, among which are Ordnance Maps ot the J^f^teyr 13iltrictjffeologic«lly coloured, and a very hand- some Map of America^ recently present^y-J'HOI^ifs I^CLCONER, ESQ. They have therefore resolved to appeal'to their Fdfow-Townsmen to assist them in erecting a suitable building for this purpose; and bavinfructifijfa the talents given to them on a former occa- sion, they are encouraged by the success ot their < t stewardship to expect a liberal amount of public support. They calculate that about £ 600 will suffice for the erection of a building suitable for a Library and Reading Room, :1;1d to form the nucleus of a Museum; and they propose to raise that amount by means of a JOINT STOCK COMPANY, under the LIMITED LIABILITY ACT, in Shares of -11 each. They believe that the credit of Merthyr itself is involved in this proposal. A far more ambitious project might justifiably clairn encouragement from the wealthy inhabitants of so large, populous, and important a place as this; and when several of the neighbouring towns, especially Keath, Swansea, and Carmarthen, already have noble Institutions of this kind, they ieel assured that this appeal will elicit a prompt and a hearty response from the people of Merthyr. The Committee have much pleasure' in announcing that H. A. HRUCB, Esq., the McmbeMor the Borough, authorised them to put tfown his name for £ 50; liberal promises have been neceived from other persons; and the Committee'themselves will promote the object to the full extent of their several abilities: JOHN GRIFFITH, President.
