The library which was left by the will of the late Queen Emma to the Honolulu Library and Reading Room Association has been all catalogued, and is now upon exhibition at the library building on Hotel street, where the public are invited to inspect it for the remainder of this week, after which the books will be placed upon the shelves for circulation. The library donated by Queen Emma is about 500 volumes of general history, voyages, travels, etc. This will bring the total number of books in the library up to about 4,700 volumes.
