This is the March 1, 1940 report of the student Picture Lending Library of Brown and RISD. The Lending Library began in the spring of 1933 through a Carnegie Corp. grant and was housed at the art galleries at Brown and RISD. Pictures were purchased from various dealers. The idea was to promote having artwork as a part of one's surroundings and not as a study aid.
