Excerpt from List of Library Books Recommended by the State Board of Education of the State of California, 1892 Section 1521, Subdivision 4, makes it the duty of the State Board of Education to recommend a list of books and apparatus for district school libraries. The power of the State Board in regard to this is simply recommendatory. The fact that books or apparatus are recommended by the State Board does t authorize Trustees or Boards of Education to purchase such books or apparatus. Only such books and apparatus as have been adopted by the County or City Boards of Education can be purchased. Section 1521, Subdivision 12, provides that the Superintendent of Schools in the several counties must draw his warrant in favor of the publishers of the official journal designated by the State Board of Education for a sum t exceeding$1 50 for each district for each school year. It also provides that the Clerk of every Board of Trustees, and the Secretary of every Board of Education, to which officers the official journal is to be sent, shall place the same in the library of the district on or before the end of the month in which it is published. Section 1650, Subdivision 3, provides for the same thing; and also makes it the duty of these officers to tify the publishers immediately in case of failure to receive the journal regularly. Every district should have in its library a full file of the copies of the official journal. At the expiration of each year the Clerk or Secretary of the Boards of Trustees or Education should have the copies for the year substantially bound; the expense incident to the binding can be defrayed by drawing upon the Library Fund of the district. The attention of Superintendents, Trustees, and teachers is particularly called to the following sections of the school laws, and the accompanying tes: 1712. The Board of Trustees and City Board of Education must expend the Library Fund, together with such moneys as may be added thereto by donation, in the purchase of school apparatus and books for a school library, including books for supplementary work, and warrant shall be drawn by the Superintendent of Schools upon the order of any Board of Trustees against the Library Fund of any district unless such order is accompanied by an itemized bill, showing the books and apparatus, and the price of each, in payment of which the order is drawn, and unless such books and apparatus have been adopted by the County or City Board of Education.
