Upon application and compliance with the rules and regulations of the Board of Directors a card good for three years will be issued, which will permit the applicant to draw books for home use. In addition to a card thus issued, any registered reader may secure a Non-fiction card, which will permit the holder to draw one book, not a novel, in addition to a book issued on the regu lar card. Both cards may be used at the same time, enabling readers to secure two non-fiction books, or one book of fiction and one non-fiction.

Teachers are accorded special privileges upon application.
