Railway Library At Wellington
Railway Library At Wellington.
The subscription is 3/- for six months, or 5/- for a year. Wellington members are permitted to have two books at a time, while country members may have four books. There is no restriction to the frequency with which books may be changed. Members who are unable to call at the Library to change books may rest assured that on receipt of their books and the number card at the Library, the return books will be forwarded promptly. The Library is open from noon to 1 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Parcels of library books are forwarded “free” by rail to and from Wellington.
The only restrictions attached to membership are:—
- (1) Prompt payment of subscriptions when due, so that a constant supply of new books may be made available.
- (2) Prompt return of books when read.
- (3) Care in the handling of books; remember that after a reader has finished a book it is not done with, but will be required many times for fellow members; only a small amount of care is required to ensure that a book is returned to the Library intact and clean.
All correspondence should be addressed to— The Librarian, Railway Fiction Library, C/o Chief Messengci, Head Office, Wellington.page 62
