SIR' -It is bad news that the

.Catholic Central Library is closing down. This will be a severe loss to people who not only like but need to read Catholic literature. both for necessary instruction and to make up for the latk of Catholic society and discussion from which many of us suffer who live in isolated country districts.

The worst thing is that the Library is closing for lack of support. Surely it should not have to depend solely on subscriptions ? Is there no official financial support for such an important work?

This is a time of great richness -so many excellent contemporary hooks as well as scholarly reprints of ancient writers are being published; but the price of the books makes it impossible for most of us to have even a quarter of those we long to read.

Surely the Library could keep going if it had a regular subsidy, if it were more widely advertised and if the lowest subscription were raised to 25s. ? Or, could a limited company be formed, in which the diocese and Catholic publishers would hold shares as well as members and friends of the library ?

Valentine Ackland

Maiden Newton, Dorchester, Dorset.

a convert and grateful

member of the Central Library, I hasten to add my plea to Mr. 7.eo Bennett's that some means may be found to keep the Library going. Being a postal member, I have found the library invaluable and I cannot speak too highly of the help and guidance I have received from the staff of the Library in the selection of books suitable to my needs.

The knowledge, understanding and love of my Faith that I have gained, the gratitude to God for this inestimable gift and reception into His Church that I feel, have been enlarged, deepened and widened through the education I have received from this Library.

With talk of the number of lapsed Catholics on the one hand, and on the other the need for more zeal in the conversion of England, can we afford to disarm ourselves of this weapon against apathy and indifference?
