§ 267. Local neglect. If the local authorities of any library
supported wholly or in part by state money fail to provide for the
support of such library and the public usefulness of its books, the
regents shall in writing notify the trustees of said library what is
necessary to meet the state's requirements, and on such notice all said
library's rights to further grants of money or books from the state
shall be suspended until the regents certify that the requirements have
been met; and if said trustees shall refuse or neglect to comply with
such requirements within sixty days after service of such notice, the
regents may remove them from office and thereafter all books and other
library property wholly or in part paid for from state moneys shall be
under the full and direct control of the regents who, as shall seem best
for public interests, may appoint new trustees to carry on the library,
or may store it, or distribute its books to other libraries.
