Librar- clubmen,, club- wives, student officials, school of- even studertts, have views on the people find that are insuficieat ? they receive from that is not avail. W,h,at wotAd it cost another library? Who Ad how? examine the purpose of the existing li- ire a, li school it- at Eastern Wash- College, one at School, one at one at r. Does a fill the same a lUblic libra,? the place of the Librariarts say, For Publ'ic school and tmb- function as refer- but while the is curriculum public library is designed to meet the needs of the general public," says Mrs. Robert F. Bender, lbrarian for the Eastern Washington State Historical Society a,d a Che- hey resident. "Furthermore," she continued, "a school library is designed to serve only the age-level of a particular school, while a public library sh)ul serve all ages, starting, with, pre,sch,ool." Leon Whitinger, director of library ,services at lgastern Washington State College, says, "We are happy to open our en- tire reference facility to the commumty and to allow books to be borrowed when osble, but we can't begin to ive eith- er the time or the money that would be necessary to fill the function of a publle library. Our first duty is to supply the needs of students and ,aeuly." The college library has been of invaluable help to the com- munity of Cheney. High school studes use it regularly; Imnor students are allowed to use school time for reference work there. TonspeoMe ,have al- ways been welcomed. But, there are segmen of the population that have been untouched by the facilities we now have, excellent .as they are. The pro-school children are one such group. Another group is made up of older people who read as much for pleasure as in, formation. White it is' imp,as. sible for school libraries to cater to these graups, it is a prime function of the public library to supply su recrea- tional reading material. Children Missing Stimul'us Children who grow up with- out experiencing the fun of browsing thr)ugh a library, ex- amining exciting-lking books, kn, owing that they are all there just waiting to be read, are missing a great st'rnulus to' reading. Wheun. parents accom- pany pro-school children to a public library and they exper- ience this pleasure together, it is rmt only a warm, shared experience but awakens in the child an enthusiasm for books and reading that will flu with him into shool. "A librarian, can usually rec- ognize which children have been read to before they learned to read," Mrs. >r- ence K. Johnson, county lbmr- tan, says. "They have more con- in=g dust on your shelves. 1 is an inforan,al crnort I about the public library that l*" is part of the American heft-1 tage, part and parcel of our beefa, in the right f ,the indi- vidual to the pursuit of knowl- edge and happiness. We ave cheating ourselves .and our children if we do not make a library part of our experience. Summer Library Open Mrs. Bernard Kingsly, brar- ian for the Oheney school dis- triet, was so eonsciou of the need for a children's library during the summer morVhsl tlat she has coened the Betz I library one morning a week the last two summers. She feels that the effort was highly worthwhile. The school administration agreed with her to the extent of sponsoring the period the second summer. This' second summer she was also aided by members of the Newconaers club, who conducted a story hour each week. Dr. William J. Riffgs, super- fiden,ce and enthusiasm." intendent of the Cheney Sclmol And these detective story[District, states that although addicts--what better place  [ he person,ally feels that a pub- satisfy that expensive .habit?[lic library would be valuable, Arid,,, 'how equal/y tkfyi,ng to the fears that the school district add to the library shelves those I wu,ld have ao funds or facil- good books that have been lities available for such a pro- read once and are now gather-I jeer. Assuming tat there is an irterest and need for a public library in Cheney, can the city afford one? Mayor Nolan Brown expresses doubt tat the city cotmeH members would be interested in any large ex- penditure. The County Library Distric offers a-rehtivety inexpensive solution. State law alrs li- brary distric to receive up to two mills ef the property tax. The Spokane D,tstrict does re- ceivebne mill from 1 unincor- porated areas of the county and supplies these areas with regular bookmobile service. In addition there is a m,air library in Opportunity and two branch- es, one in the Whimh area: and )ne in Orchard Averme. Incorporated towns have the option of paying a mill and joining the county district. The cost for Cheney would be $2,626 yearly. For this amount, the cou.nty will past a lbrarian chosen in Cheney ,and will leave up to 25,000 books in a location furnished by Chen. These lmoks will be sugtIied on a rotating basis. This co- operative arrangement is called a depository. Up To Community How much of a" library the arrangements produce is up to[ In order to become part of each community. At the pres-[ the county libra,ry system, it is ent time there are 10 depsi-Inecessary for the city council tortes in the country. They are lto make the decision and see operating in su.,ch_ places as fire [ that a room is found and equip. stations, women s dubs, stores, ped, arrangements made for town lmlls, and even in a rest- heating and cleaning, and that dential utility room. In some a librarian is chosen. places the depository is just a closet in a school or other pub- lic building. Mrs. Johnson says, however, that location is importart. "A phce near a shopping district is best, and the hours at which the library is open are also im- portant. We keep a lbrary open as much as usage justi- ties," she said. Some iaadication as .o whet'h- er a hbrary would be. used in a community where there are goal school hbraries and a col- lege library might be found by studying the north Slokane branch. This library is next door to Whitworth grade school .and is less than a mile from VChitworth CoUege. Mrs. Robert Picken, the Rbrari said, "This branch was estab- lished two years ago. We are open every afternoo and eve- ning and we are busy. Our circu.htin is increasing all the time. It jumped 1,000 books last month." Target Date 1966 It is too late n,ow to do the necessary budgeting before 1966, according to City Clerk Roy Fss. By that time a mem- bership oard at the Cheney Public Library wauld entitle the owner not only to use te other county libraries, but to borrow from the Spokane City Library, as well. The Spokane library loans rmt only books, but records, films, and pa'mt- ings by local artist, accordi.rtg to the county librari,an, Mrs. Johnson. Mrs. 1Wilo tLaU, Rt. 1, Cheney, c hai'rman of the Spokane coun- ty library board, has stated that she would be delighted to mee,t with arty goup of inter- ested citizens to discuss the possibilities ,fro-thor. Mrs. Jolmson and others .'have indicated their willing- ness to speak before groups, ar take part in public discus- sions concerning various phas--, es of the subject.
