MR. DRUMMOND’S CRITICISM.
In an address at the School of Arts, the Minister for Education (Mr. Drummond) said that he did not think there was any country in the world so backward as Australia in the provision of libraries. Splendid work, he said, had been done in Casino in developing one of the finest library activities in the State. It would give an excellent lead to other places, and be productive of fine results in many parts of New South Wales.
DISTRICT SCHEME PROPOSED.
A scheme for the establishment of district libraries with Tenterfield School of Arts as the centre, was proposed by the Inspector for Schools (Mr. A. J. Dowd). He suggested that Tenterfield, Deepwater, Torington, and Emmaville form a group, each contributing equally to the purchase of books, which would be available to the members of all the libraries. Each of the branch libraries would retain books to the value of the amount it had contributed. The Education Department was prepared to strengthen schools of arts with a scheme of district libraries.
GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. The following notifications appear in yesterday's Gazette: POST AND TELEGRAPH OFFICES. - On and from the 20th instant the Post-office at present known as Vegetable Creek will bear the designation of "Emmaville."
