Excerpt from Eighteenth Annual Report of the Trustees of the Public Library: 1870

The annual supervision of the institution by a number 0 gentlemen, entirely independent in method of examination and in their expression of Opinion, must always have great weight in informing the City Government of the manner in which this large trust is executed by its managers.

The report Of. The Superintendent (appendix B.) contains the statements required by the Ordinance, and also the tables necessary to give a proper understanding Of the manifold details inseparable from the daily service of' a well-governed library.

In the last report of this Board, it was stated in reference to' the new system Of shelf examination, inaugurated upon the plan and under - the direction of the Superintendent, for the purpose of keeping the Library doors Open throughout the year, that there seemed little doubt that a second trial would confirm the favorable conclusions Of the first. This expectation has been fully realized. SO far as is apparent, the shelf inquisitions are quite as searching, and the books missing as carefully followed, the losses as clearly made out, as when the Library was closed a month for the purpose of ascertaining the same facts. Pro vided no unforeseen Obstacles arise, the arrangement may be considered as fully adopted for the future; and one may reason ably expect that the Public Library will hereafter be Open-more days in the year than any kindred organization known to the Board.
