the election of the library committee. For any injury not amounting to destruction to any book, map, chart, engraving, medal or other article as aforesaid, the person causing the same shall pay a sum sufficient to compensate for such injury. This rule shall be of general application.

9. The trustees hereby declare, agreeably to the provisions of the Revised Statutes, that the following books are always to be kept in the library as books of reference, to wit: All the books in the law library; and in the general library, all dictionaries, encyclopædias, registers, directories, newspapers, maps and engravings, and books which are valuable for their rarity or antiquity.

10. Books of reference, referred to in the preceding article, cannot be taken from the library; except that, during the session of the legislature or of the courts, any member thereof may take to any room in the capitol any such book, on leaving a card for the same as required by the fourth rule, after being duly registered. The book must be returned on the same day on which it is taken.

11. No books belonging to the law library can be taken to the general library for perusal; nor are books, maps, engravings, or any other article belonging to the general library, to be taken to the law library for perusal or examination.

12. For the better preservation from injury of the more costly collections of engravings, and the rare works and maps belonging to the library, neither the librarian nor the assistant librarian shall exhibit them to any person other than those authorized to take books from the library, except on a written request from a member of the joint library committee of the senate and assembly, the speaker of the assembly, or one of the trustees or the secretary of the library.

13. Three days before the day fixed for the adjournment of any session of the legislature, or of the senate only, the librarian shall address a note to each member of the legislature, or of the senate, as the case may be, having any book belonging to the library, requesting the return thereof within twenty-four hours.

14. After the expiration of said twenty-four hours the librarian shall immediately make out a list of the members of each house who have omitted to return any books belonging to the library, specifying the volumes retained by each; and a list of those against whom any charges for injury to or loss of books exist, stating the amount of them, which list shall be alphabetically arranged, according to the names of the respective members, and shall be certified to be correct. To the president of the senate

the librarian shall forthwith deliver the list relating to that body, and the list containing the names of the members of the assembly he shall forthwith deliver to the speaker; and upon each list shall be written a copy of the section of the Revised Statutes in regard to this matter above set forth,

15. Twenty days before the opening of any annual session of the legislature the librarian shall report in writing to the trustees the title of every book, map, chart, print, engraving, or other article missing from the library since the catalogue of the previous year was made out; or, if no such catalogue has been made, then since the date of the said librarian's last annual report to the trustees; together with the name or names of the persons who appear, from the entries of the librarian, to have borrowed or detained the same, to the end that such list may be submitted to the legislature by the trustees.

16. All penalties imposed under any of these rules may be remitted by the library committee, either wholly or on such terms as they may deem proper.
