An examination of columns 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 of table 2 shows that in 8 States—Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia-county or State grants or both for school libraries are dependent upon the receipt of funds from district or local schools. The maximum yearly amount of these grants is given in column 7, table 2. The maximum yearly amount of grants for the remaining States is noted in the same column.

The purpose for which school library funds may be spent is given in column 8, table 2. In some instances expenditures may be made for purposes other than library books or services. School apparatus is included in California and Michigan; suitable educational material in Connecticut; dictionaries and books for teaching vocal music, maps, charts, and apparatus in Iowa; and books confined largely to curricular subjects in Kansas.

The purpose of column 9 in table 2 is to show upon what conditions the grants are contingent. The one most frequently mentioned is that books shall be selected from a list approved by State educational boards or the State's chief school officer or the State library agency.
