PROPOSED FREE LIBRARY FOR LLANELLY. REFERENCES IN THE WESTERN MAIL. In many respects Llanelly is eminently progress- ive, and, taken as a whole, contains, probably, more intelligence than any town of its size in the United Kingdom. Moreover, as a rule it has the good sense to combine and move together, so that most things it takes in hand are brought to a successful issue. Over the question of a public library, however, Llanelly seems to have fallen from grace-at least, a considerable number of its prominent inhabitants have. These are content with the present means of self-culture and mental recreation which the town possesses, and consider a library a waste of money, if not something worse. Happily, they seem to be in a minority, so that the town is not likely to suffer from their want of public spirit and liberal mindedness. The Rev. Elfed Lewis, a man who knows the value of a public libraryas few men in Llanelly do, throws himself heart and soul into the movement in favour of the proposed free library, and is supported by a number of influential towns-people. He is right in speaking of the success of the libraries at Cardiff and Swansea. Those towns would sooner sell their coats or even the shirts off their backs rather than be deprived of an institution which gives them so much real pleasure and profit at such a comparative little outlay. If Llanelly wishes to enter into the com- pany of these towns it must provide itself with a free library, otherwise let it abide in the obscurity of villagedom.
