III. In cases where Members are unable to apply and give their signature personally, a memorandum addressed to the Librarian, specifying the work and bearing the Member's signature, shall be deemed sufficient; and such memorandum shall be equivalent to a Member's signature of receipt for the volume or volumes issued, with all responsibility attaching thereto.

VII. Members will be held responsible for the condition and safe keeping of volumes standing in their names; and any volume lost or defaced must be made good by the Member in whose name it stands, or the set, supposing it to form one of a set.

VIII. When a Member returns any volume he will make an entry to that effect, specifying the date, in a column set apart for that purpose in the Register, and leave it with the Librarian.

IX. Valuable Illustrated Works, Maps, and Books of General Reference, must not be removed from the Library.

XI. Monthly and Quarterly Periodicals may be issued to Members in the same manner as other books, after fourteen days from the date of their reception in the Library, and four days will be allowed for the use of such, but not more than one number shall be taken out at the same time.

XII. Any person, not being a Member of either House of the Legislature, who shall transfer any book to any other person instead of returning it to the Librarian, or who shall return any book in a dirty, damaged, or defective state, or with any written notes or memo. randum upon it, will have his admission to the Library cancelled.

XIII. After each Session, as soon as convenient, the Librarian shall take an account of the books in the Library, and for that purpose shall address a circular to each Member who has any volume in his possession, in order that the same may be returned within a given time.

XIV. The Librarian is required to report to the Library Committee any infringement of these Rules.

XV. During the Recess, the Library will be open from 9.30 a.m. till 5 p.m., except on Saturdays, when the Library will close at 4 p.m., and on Sundays, when it will be open from 2 to 4 p.m.
