Penarth Free Library. -


Penarth Free Library. The committee met on Friday evening last, under the presidency of Mr G. C. Thompson. A discussion took place upon the question whether or not an effort should be made to open the library at an early date with about 1,000 volumes, or whether the money coming in from the rates should be allowed to accu- mulate until a full library of 5,000 books could be bought. Upon the condition that the library should be opened as soon as 1,000 vols. could be got together, Mr J. M. Jennings offered to give the necessary timber for shelving, &c.. and Messrs T. Bevan, and G4 Pile undertook to provide the necessary labour for fixing. It was decided to accept these offers, andtoappoftl at once to the public for gifts of books. On Wednesday next, the 20th inst., the newspapers and the periodicals not to be kept for binding for the library will be sold by auction up to the 30th of June. These will be delivered to purchasers weekly, or the papers may be fetched daily.
