1908 Carnegie Library, Decatur, Illinois

[LIB6513] - "Admonitions to the library assistant have been many — so many, in fact, that she sometimes wonders whether she is supposed to have any initiative and will-power of her own or merely live by the rule of "thou shalt" and "thou shalt not" as laid down by others. It is an encouraging thought, however, that, although every library has more or less definite staff regulations, the very qualities that make for the most professionally are not usually set forth in codes of rules." - The Assistant's Opportunities to Serve Her Library. By Florence D. Love, Public Library, Decatur, Illinois. 1919.
