Technical services librarians at the Newton Free Library1
In 1922: The seventh annual institute for librarians was held at Simmons College by the Massachusetts Division of Public Libraries. "Miss June Richardson Donnelly gave an account of her recent visits to libraries from coast to coast, calling it 'Vagabonding in Libraries.'"2 Donnelly was the second director of Simmons College from 1913 to 1937.3
TODAY: It's almost impossible for a librarian to go on holiday and not visit the local library.
