Excerpt from Thirty-Ninth Annual Report of the Public Schools, Columbus, Ga: For the Year Ending June 8th, 1906
The very full attendance at the Primary Industrial Industrial School, and the enthusiasm s'hm' displayed by the children and the parents and friends of this school, show that the past year has been one of considerable success there. The prepara tion given to the pupils there is invaluable in after work at the Secondary Industrial School and through the different grades of school work.
Public It is pleasant to chronicle the fact that bury the Public Library has been completed and has been in full operation since October 1, 1907.
The published reports of the Librarian (which the Board has given to the public journals as a matter of information) show such an enthusiastic reception of the Library on the part of the reading public, that no further comments are necessary to show the great need existing in this community for that institution.
The work of the Librarian and the assistant is especially serviceable and useful as an educational adjunct to the children of the city, in popularizing the institution and inducting the children into the habit of reading. The Friday afternoon story-telling hour, and the Monday noon devoted to the same purpose for the dinner carriers of the working class of people, have proven that the children of the city are keen to have this attention paid them and have profited very much by the lessons taught during these hours.
