Excerpt from Third Report of the Public Library Commission of New Jersey, for the Year Ending October 31st, 1902
Of the appropriation of $300 made for the incidental expenses of the Commission during the year, was expended for printing, 4 for postage, and for express charges.
In the introduction to the list of first books was a suggestion to those in charge of New Jersey libraries that they procure, where possible, copies of State, county and local histories, and apply to the Commissioners of the State Library for copies of such vol umes of the New Jersey Archives 'as can be furnished. The Public Library Commissioners learn that in response to this recommendation but two applications were made for the Archives, although only twenty-six of the more than one hundred libraries in the State have sets of them. The Commissioners, while fully realizing that most of the librarians are busily engaged in the routine work of their institutions, regret that there should be shown such oversight or neglect.
