Sowing Seeds in Danny, Dorothy, Dennis, Dillon and Destiny: A Century of Library Service to Children
As we celebrate the centenary of children’s librarians at the Toronto Public Library and look back to the early decades of library service to children let’s examine some of the specific books and stories that lay behind that mission. What were those seeds that Lillian H. Smith and her disciples were sowing with such energy, idealism and creativity? And how did they get away with it?
Thursday April 26, 8 p.m. Lillian H. Smith Branch, Community Room 239 College Street (at Huron) The Osborne Collection of Early Children’s Books.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Osborne and Lillian H. Smith Collections Please call 416-393-7753 for more information. Free admission.
