Excerpt from A Catalogue of the Library of the Morse Institute, Natick, Mass This was accepted by the town, April 6, 1857, and thereupon the Citizens' library became merged in a Town library. The town made annual grants for its support, generally in excess of the amount it was required to make. By the terms of its contract. A catalogue, published in 1859, shows that it had then increased to volumes, of which only 483 belonged to the Citizens' library. Another catalogue was published in 1866, and annual supplements of volumes added thereafter. These show a constant increase of interest by the inhabitants in their library, and when it was transferred by the town committee to the Morse Institute, June 2, 1873, there were in it volumes of well selected books. The Morse Institute was founded by Mary Ann Morse, who died June 30, 1862, leaving her whole estate by will, for the purpose of establishing a library for the use and benefit of all the inhabitants of the town. Under these circumstances, the town wisely trans ferred. By vote passed March 3, 1873, its library to the care and management of the Trustees, elected by the town, under the pro visions of the will of Miss Morse, thus forming the basis of the library of the Morse Institute.
