The librarian's report showed that the society was receiving most of the periodicals it was accustomed to receive. Many foreign societies had ceased the distribution of their publications during the war, but most of them had begun sending them again.
Some pamphlets had been presented by their authors.
The binding of these periodicals had been allowed to fall into arrears, and Mr Gibb suggested a special fund be established to continue this work. This was agreed to.
