Excerpt from Chicago Public Library, Vol. 7: Book Bulletin, January, 1917 Plans for the coming year contemplate an entire reorganization of the system, whereby it is hoped within five years to realize the following objective: "Library service within walking distance of home for every person in the City of Chicago who can read or wants to use books, in place of being compelled to ride on street cars forth and back, an average of 10 miles for more than one-half the population." If this plan is realized, through the contemplated system of five regional branches (there are now two), and seventy local branches (there are now 35), the following striking improvements will be made possible: The Chicago Public Library will be in a position to serve well 700,000 persons who now get no library service by reason of distance or are but indifferently served. A maximum travel of 32 miles to consult special reference material or to draw music scores for home use will be reduced to an average of less than one mile. Automobile delivery routes will be reduced from 32 miles per round trip to six miles, enabling a unit delivery five times greater than now, and without additional cost. An Exhibit of the Dune Country An exhibit of etchings and photographs taken by members of the Prairie Club and loaned by them, has been installed on the fourth floor of the Chicago Public Library. The pictures are shown in cases in the corridor on Washington street side of the building, and the exhibit which opened about January 1st, will remain until about the 1st of March, being changed from time to time. The nucleus of the exhibit is a collection of pictures owned by L. H. Drury, and taken by fellow club members, and includes some remarkable flower groups, and a panoramic view of one of the "blow-outs." Earl Reed, who has depicted this region with both pen and pencil, has loaned some of his famous etchings, which are in a case by themselves. There are also sepia photos taken by L. T. Gobel, A. E. Anderson and Charles Harmon, like etchings in treatment and subject, weird scenes of sand formation. Charming views of trails and forest, floral and animal life have also been caught by the cameras of A. E. Ormes, C. G. Dudley, Frances LaFollette, R. W. Flowers and others. Together they give but a glimpse of the miles of this unique country which is considered by authorities one of the "wonder spots" of the world. Accompanying the picture exhibit is an attractive bulletin board containing material relating to the dunes in the form of poems and articles illustrated, which not only tell the story of the need for this great playground, but its value to the scientist, artist and teacher, and what its restfulness means to the individual who is weary with the city's strain. To the Conference on National Parks, sitting this month in Washington, a similar group of pictures has been sent by nature-loving organizations in Chicago, to tell the story of these hills and plead for the preservation of the Dune country. Concerning this exhibit a Dune enthusiast writes as follows to the Library: "The lovely, wild, weird Dune country, with its wooded hills, moving dunes, blow-outs, winding trails, tree-laced creeks, lowland marshes, and the Great Lake washing its shores, is known and loved by a few hundred fortunate ones who have breathed with joy its breezes laden with spices of the forest, caught Mother Nature at work making and unmaking hills and valleys, watched the violet carpet change to lupin blue, to rose, to red and gold, then brown and white, heard the songs of early spring, and caught the flashing of cardinal wings against the snow.
