The County Library has just
sent down a new collection of
books for the Maupin Library
Station which is located in the
Shattuck Bros, store. The libr
ary is now supplying the Maupin
station with more than the aver
age sized traveling library as the
demand for books has been large
and the regular traveling library
of fifty volnmes has not been
enough to supply the demand.
The new collection which Mrs
Cyr has just received includes
books by many of the well known
writers of the day and others
that are just as good but not
quite so widely advertised, as
well as some of the older but pop
ular authors of both fiction and
nonfiction. Some of the authors
represented in this list are Emer
son Hough, Bower, Hergesheim
er, Joseph Lincoln, Zane Grey,
Booth Tarkington, Bindloss, Mc
Cutcheon, Knibbs, Will Irwin,
White, Deland, Hemon, Kyne,
and John Fox, Jr. The list in
cludes a good many different
types of stories, so that those
who want adventure, mystery,
or romance will be able to find
something to their liking. For
others who want something be
sides stories there are also a
number of interesting and worth
