The greater portion of this increase comes from fines and duplicate cards furnished, which taken together are in excess of the receipts from the same source during the previous year, $59.49, thus showing that the librarians have been very careful in the enforcement of the rules and regulations regarding the retention of books over time.The amount drawn from the general fund in the hands of the city treasurer aggregates $6,490.86, whilst the amount drawn during the previous year was $6,479.39, which is only $11.47 less than the amount for the past year.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
