ING TO THE FISK FREE AND
JANUARY 9, 1895.
Official Proceedings. Mayor's Message.
I recommend that the building formerly occupied by the Criminal District Court be devoted to the use of a public library wherein both the library at the City Hall and the Fisk Library, now in charge of the Administrators of the Tulane Educational Fund, and which, owing to their removal to new quarters, will have to be changed from its present location, could be concentrated and our citizens be given the benefit of a great free library, a long felt public want.
I submit that the necessary alterations to the building can be made with but slight expenditures, and I would ask your serious consideration of the subject. Respectfully,
JOHN FITZPATRICK, Mayor.
