Patron selecting a film in the Group Services department


Two large film canisters sit on the desk as library staff member Mrs. Emily Wiggins helps a patron select a film to borrow. Behind the desk there is a book truck on which are stacked several more film canisters and a small card catalog with a fan sitting on top. A door to the left, behind Mrs. Wiggins, leads to the film shelving area. The patron is wearing a checked pantsuit, typical of the 1970s. The Group Services department was located on the north side of the first floor in space originally occupied by the women's restroom. Transcribed from back of photo: 'June, 1974. Central Library. View of the Group Services department showing Mrs. Emily Wiggins helping a patron in selecting a film to borrow'.
