The first monthly report from branch head librarian (Hortense Binderup) describing the first month in the new Hollywood Library. The heading of the report reads 'REPORT OF HOLLYWOOD & EAST PORTLAND, April 1959.' The report has been typed on yellow paper and addressed to 'Miss Phillips.' Included in the report are comments from patrons including 'this is much nicer than the old building' and 'money well spent.' The report goes on to say 'public enthusiasm resulted in empty shelves. Juvenile picture books and primary readers were exhausted first...' and adult 'mysteries almost disappeared.' Only cookbooks and fiction from M to Z held up well. 'People seem to be exhausted by the time they reach M...perhaps they have found enough books by the time they reach the halfway point.'
