THE LIBRARY LOG MUNICIPAL REFERENCE BRANCH Winifred B. Merrill, Librarian City Hall, 8th Floor Telephone Main 3715 Hours: 8 to 5:15; Sat. 8 to 12:15 Municipal Reference Library. In contrast to the other branches of the Public Library, whose collections of books embrace information on all subjects, the Municipal Reference Library is a special library whose functions are to provide information on municipal government and on the varied activities carried on by municipalities. With this aim in view, the library collects books and pamphlets from every available source, and supplements the printed information by extended correspondence. The library aims to serve especially city officials and civic workers, but it welcomes any opportunity which may arise to extend its services to the general public. Municipal Reference Library Bulletin. The Municipal Reference Library Bulletin, which has been issued by the Municipal Reference Library for the past two years as a separate bulletin, will hereafter be included in The Library Log of the Milwaukee Public Library which makes its initial appearance with this issue as a monthly publication of the library. Those who have been receiving the Bulletin will receive the Log in which a separate section will be devoted to the interests of the Municipal Reference Library. LIST OF RECENT ADDITIONS Americanization Clark, Marion K. The English for safety campaign by the New York state indus- trial commission. N. Y. state ind. com. bul. Dec. 1917. 331.825Z By its "English for safety campaign'' the N. Y. state industrial commission intends to make a concerted drive for the conservation of labor. Its campaign is based on the theory that the Americanization of foreigners is essential to promoting safety work and decreasing the num- her of industrial accidents. Charities Milwaukee, Wis. Centralized budget of philanthropies. Report. 1916-17. This report, the first issued since the federated budget system was organized in Milwaukee, is a very valuable addition to the literature on that subject. It contains a survey of the methods and the work done by the centralized budget, a brief report from each of the associations which re- ceive funds and a directory of the social welfare agencies in Milwaukee. New York City public welfare committee. Humanizing the greater city's charities: work of the department of public char- ities of New York. N. Y. 1917. 144p. 361.9N48h Few people realize that the New York depart- ment of public charities, a branch of the New York city government, is the largest charitable organization in the world. The pamphlet is de- scriptive of its work and the many institutions under its jurisdiction. Illustrated by photo- graphs, pen sketches, charts and tables, the re- port has been made exceedingly attractive and interesting. Child Labor Abels, Margaret Hutton.
