It would appear hardly proper to allow the three hundredth anniversary of the establishment of libraries in British America to pass unnoticed. Since the first American library opened sometime in September, 1638, within a short distance of the present Harry Elkins Widener Memorial Library, and within the hospitable shelter of Harvard College, this issue of the Harvard Library Notes has been devoted by the Editors to a review of our history.
