A wide-awake intelligent man or woman wanted in every city and town to organize branches of The Parmelee New Book Home Delivery Library. A magnificent opportunity to enter into an up-to-date work

of great importance, which appeals to every Book Lover.

HE munificence of Andrew Carnegie has led to the establishment of Public Libraries

throughout the country. The interest created in this library movement has spread over
the entire land and there is scarcely a town where the subject of organizing a public
library has not been agitated. It is not practicable, however, in every town to erect a
building and go to the expense of purchasing and caring for a large collection of books.

The beginning must be small and the interest of the people in the library movement increased until the public library becomes the outgrowth. With this idea in mind an organization was started in 1882 for the purpose of forming library clubs of those who would purchase their own books and circulate them among the members. This concern, known as The Parmelee Library, has from this beginning, developed a New Book Home Delivery System which now covers all sections of the country and is rapidly growing, rivaling the famous Mudie Library of London, The growth of this work has been phenomenal.

The Parmelee Library wishes to extend the service until there is a Parmelee New Book Home Delivery Station organized in every city and village in the United States. The adaptability of the system to the needs of even the greatest cities having the best of public library facilities, as well to the community with inferior public service, is shown through the registered circulation in Boston and Chicago since November of last year of over 25,000 volumes of the popular new books. None of the following advantages are afforded under the usual public library service.

1. Members can get the books they want in every branch of literature, without delay or inconvenience. No book is too new to be included in the library. Thus in fiction we find “The Helmet of Navarre, “The Crisis," "The Octopus," "Graustark,” “The Puppet Crown,' etc. No waiting for a book. The Parmelee Library buys enough copies to meet the demand.

2. The books are always neat, clean and in viting. As soon as a book is soiled it is replaced by a clean copy.

3. The books can be kept as long as desired. No fines. Andrew Carnegie.

No red tape. 4. Members can take one, two, four or more books a week; also copies of any of the sixty leading magazines;

thus supplying the entire reading for the family: 5. The books are delivered at your door and called for in a very pleasing way. 6. A weekly book list, giving names and descriptions of new books added to the library, is regularly sent to members. 7. A 250 page catalog, itself a work of typographical excellence, is furnished members free.

In the usual public library none of the above advantages are offered, and, as a necessary sequence, the perfected Parmelee Libraries are meeting with extraordinary success in the largest cities, having the best public library facilities.

we WANT A REPRESENTATIVE IN EVERY CITY AND TOWN. The work is one of refinement and affords an agreeable occupation for any man or woman who seeks a high-class appointment. To enroll names of those interested who wish to join, to superintend the weekly receipt of books, and their delivery by messengers to the patrons' homes-these are the duties. We do not need experienced men or women, but those with education and refinement, as well as grit and energy, and who will follow our instructions to the letter. If a person can only give a portion of his or her time, the work can be confined to managing the Library in one's own town. Ladies of the highest standing in cities all over the country are organizing clubs of 25 to 100 members and rendering a favor to their friends. We shall be glad to hear from any persons possessing these qualifications and who are open for an engagement, either as a local Organizer or as traveling Director.

These positions are open to only one person in each town. It will be necessary, therefore, for any reader of this notice who may be interested to make application at once. Such an opportunity to secure a permanent and desirable position is seldom offered.
