A Public Library.
A meeting was held at the court house last Friday evening for the purpose of perfecting an organization for establishing a public library in Wellsboro.
Mill Helen Underwood Price, traveling representative of the State Library Commission, gave an informal talk on the best methods of conducting a library and the benefits to be derived, together with many interesting facts which will aid materially in the successful launching of a public library in Wellsboro. Miss Price, who has been trained in the work by years of experience, is an expert on all matters pertaining to the formation and conduct of a public library. Moreover, she has a pleasing personality and engaging manner and invests her subject with such a degree of earnestness and forcefulness that one cannot help but realize that she is thoroughly imbued with the great importance of the subject and the incalculable benefit to be derived from such a library as is proposed in this borough.
Miss Price, in her introductory remarks, stated that she was I the employ of the State Library Commission to travel about from place to place to help along free public libraries and to lend her assistance where new libraries are to be established, and that her salary and expenses are paid by the State.
The following officers were elected:  President, H. F. March; Vice Presidents, Mrs. O. A. Kilbourn, Mrs. Champaign and Miss Harriet A. Simpson; Secretary, Mrs. F. H. Shaw; Treasurer, Hon. F. S. Rockwell
