Thanks for the suggestions.

I was able to find the Mission furniture publication online at https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/23770. All three parts are available and there is a library table in Part 1. From the instructions in Part 1 “The slats can be fastened on with nails, then the heads covered with fancy nails which can be secured for this purpose.”. The instructions also describe the use of a dado where the shelf meets the leg.

It is unfortunate that the photo I found does not have more resolution. It does look like there is some sort of fastener visible if you zoom in but it is too grainy to draw any conclusions.
