TO make the most of the advantages it possesses should be the aim of each department in our University, and to none does this apply more directly than to the Library. That its advantages have not been fully developed is self-evident from the fact that it has not yet been thrown open to students in the evening as well as during the day. That this has been accomplished successfully in the Boston Public Library is well known, and should satisfy the Library Council that the experiment might be made here with similar beneficial results. Heretofore, the principal objection to so doing has been based on the great danger there would be of fire; but we see no reason why this danger should apply to our Library more than to that in Boston. We hope that the additional expense which would be necessary is not at the bottom of the difficulty; but even this ought to be incurred, if it can accomplish an equivalent amount of good. And this has been proved to be the case, not only in public libraries, but in foreign universities, where much use of them is made by students at night.
