Abstract

LIBRARIES in War have, alas, been too often the theme of this and other library magazines owing to the times in which men and women of middle age have had to live. Today, even younger ones can see some reflection of the atmosphere, because they have been brought up in a pervading spirit of threats and preparations insomuchand this is the tragedy of i tthey ask What is the good of preparing for life in this world when we are likely to be bombed out of it at any moment There is much good, because, even if the ultimate tragedy came, England and the majority of us would survive and the world must go on. It is a descent from this perhaps grand attitude to the thought that less money may be available for libraries for the time being. We know that rates are rising in many places, owing to unemployment relief needs and A.R.P. demands, but there is the consolation that last year many new libraries were opened. It may be a result of the truth that never are libraries more needed than in hours of stress.
