Mrs Sage and the Library board of trustees felt that library services could be improved by introducing more standardized procedures for circulation, collection development and management, and staff/patron interaction. Policies were adopted to streamline circulation practices and establish delineated criteria for the acquisition of new materials and the withdrawal and redistribution of older, damaged, or unused items (May 1944).
P.S. Notice the spelling discrepancy in Mrs. Sage's first name? This is a common encounter for historical researchers. Library records show Mrs. Sage's first name primarily as Lenna, although Lena also makes its occasional appearance (e.g., the MPL Obituary Card Files). Two newspaper obituaries use variant spellings. The cemetery records use both. The 1910 Federal Census for Brown Township, Morgan County, Indiana, spells her name as Lenna.
