The March l6 issue of Wednesday Journal featured an article discussing the candidates for library trustee in River Forest. The article stated that a consultant found that 30 percent of the volumes had not been check out in five years. It should be noted that all the reference books, which do not circulate, were included in that estimate as well as the 5-year reserve of the many periodicals provided for the community. Periodicals are available for check out, but are more often used as reference within the library or articles are copied from them for further use. River Forest citizens should be aware that the 30 percent figure seems to be an inflated one
