One of the most useful institutions of the students is the Harvard Reading Room. Its success this year has been considerable, but not so great as could have been wished. Next year it is possible to greatly extend its usefulness and increase its advantages. This can be accomplished if but a larger number will come forward and become patrons of the institution. Considering the large return offered on the investment, and the small sum required to obtain the privileges of the room, it is certainly surprising that it is not better patronized. In proportion as its membership increases, its advantages also increase. Every one should remember the reading room next year, and give it his support and patronage. It will certainly amply repay the investment required.
