 The Lillian H. Smith Library
The history of the Lillian H. Smith branch begins long before the current building was built. Named in honour of one of the pioneers of children's librarianship, the library houses both the Merril Collection of Speculative Fiction and the Osborne Collection of Early Children's Literature. Besides these two renowned reference collections, it continues to offer a very popular circulating collection of both children's and adult books and a wide range of dynamic programming for people of all ages.
