Photographer's Note

This is the entrance to one of the branch libraries of the large Toronto Public Library system. Only the entrance shown, because it is the best part of this attractive post modern building. It was opened in 1995, and has a large collection of children's books and science fiction books. The architect, Phillip H. Carter, incorporated elements into his design, such as the giant bronze griffins flanking the central doorway or the dungeon-like basement, to complement the subjects of the collections. Appropriately the branch is named after Lillian H. Smith, the first trained children’s librarian in Canada who devoted 40 of her working years to the development of the children’s collection within the Toronto Public Library.
