A short Account of the LIBRARY.

THE Library-Company was form'd in 1731, by Constitutions or Ar­ticles entred into by 50 Persons, each obliging himself to pay 40 [...] for purchasing the first Parcel of Books, and 10 s. per annum to defray Charges and encrease the Library.

Ten Directors or Managers of the Library, and a Treasurer, are chosen yearly by Vote, at a General Meeting of the Com [...]y.

The Number of Members are now encreased to [...] of 70. Persons enclining to be admitted, apply to any one of the Dire [...]tors, who nominates them at the next monthly Meeting of D [...]ctors; and being allowed, and paying to the Treasurer the Value of a Share at the Time, and signing the Articles, they become Members.

Any Member may borrow a Book for 2, 3, or 4 Weeks, leaving his Note for double Value, an [...] paying a small Penalty if 'tis not return'd at the Time agreed; which Penalties are applied to d [...]fray [...]ng Charges, or pur­chasing more Books.

Every Member has an absolute Property in his Share; may devise it in his Will, or d [...]spose of it when he pl [...]ses to any P [...]son the D [...]rectors ap­prove. And Shares so sold have always hitherto y [...]ded as much as they had cost. As Shares encreas [...] yearly in Value 10 s. so much being yearly added by each Subscriber to the Stock of Books, a Share which at first was worth but 40 s. is now valued at 6 l. 10 s. But for this small Sum, which, laid out in Books, would go but a [...] Way, every Member has the Use of a Library now worth upwards of [...]00 l. whereby Knowledge is in this City render'd more ch [...]p and [...]sy to be come at, to the great Pleasure and Advantage of the [...] Par [...] of the Inhabitants.

Those who are not Subsc [...]bers may no [...]withsta [...]ding bo [...]o [...] Books, leaving in the Hands of the Librarian, as a Pledge, a Sum of Money pro­portion'd to the Value of the Book borrow'd, and paying a small Acknow­ledgment for the Reading, which is apply'd to the Use of the Library.

The Library is open and Attendance given every Saturday Afternoon from 4 a Clock 'til 8.

Besides the Books in this Catalogue given to the Library, the Company have been favour'd with several generous Donation [...]; as, a curious Air-Pump, with its Apparatus, a large double M [...]cr [...]scope, and [...]her valuable In [...] ­ments, from the Hon. JOHN PENN, Esq A handsome Lot of Ground whereon to bu [...]ld a House for the Library, from the Hon. THOMAS PENN, Esq Propriet [...]ries of the Prov [...]nce; and the S [...] of 34 l. Ste [...]l. (to be laid out in Books) from D [...]Sy [...]erse, late of Antigua.

At present the Books are depos [...]ted in the West W [...]ng of the State-House, by Favour of the General Assembly.

It is now T [...]n Years since the Company was first estab [...]sh [...]d; and we have the Pleasure of observing, That tho' 'ts comp [...]d of so many Persons of different Sects, Parties and Ways of [...], yet [...]o [...] re­lating to the Af [...]irs of the [...], have [...] us; but every Thing has been conducted with great Ha [...]ony, a [...]d to general Satisfaction. Which happy Circumstance will▪ we hope, al [...]ys continue.

Note, A Copy of the Articles o [...] Constitutions is l [...]ft in the L [...]rary, for the Perusal of all that desire to be more [...]ully [...].
