The Diocesan Librarian reports the library in good condition, and its usefulness increasing. Two candidates for Holy Orders, studying at their homes, have been supplied with necessary books, and more books have been borrowed than in any preceding year.
The library has received a gift of seven volumes from the Bishop. Two of these are bound volumes of the Church Worker for its first and second years.
The widow of the late Rev. F. N. Luson, of Frankfort, gave his library to the Bishop to be used as he saw fit. He divided it between the Howe Grammar School and the Diocesan Library, the latter receiving forty volnmes. These additions have been plated, shelved, and entered in the written catalogue.
Rev. Dr. Bradley, on leaving the Diocese, donated a number of pamphlets, useful in completing files.
Miss Jenners, of Lafayette, has given a number of pamphlets, among which are English sermons, valualle because rare. These will be bound.
I am desirous of binding another set of our Diocesan Convention Journals, and have one complete with the exception of those for 1851, 1854, 1855, and 1873, and will be thankful to have these supplied.
With the Bishop's consent, I have appropriated a shelf for the beginning of a reference library for Churchwomen, on all matters connected with their work. For this I have received from Mrs. Twing, Honorary Secretary of the Woman's Auxiliary, and editor of Church Work, a gift of the first and second bound volumes of this valuable magazine. I will be glad to receive donations of books or pamphlets relating to women's work, for this library.
