Excerpt from Toronto Public Library Twenty-Ninth Annual Report for the Year 1912

First, the generous supplementary gift of Mr. J. Ross Robertson, by which over four hundred pictures have been added to the priceless collection of Historical Prints placed in the possession of the Library through his generosity at the end of last year. That these are interesting to the people and appreciated by them is proved by an attendance of visitors during the past eleven months. That the collection might be made, as its donor intended, a means of education as well as of recreation and pleasure, a library assistant has been assigned to the Historical Room.

Second, the development of the work among children in the Children's Rooms in the Branch Libraries throughout the city. The Board was fortunate in securing the services of Miss Lillian Smith, of the Children's Department of the New York Public Library, to take charge of this work. Three capable assistants have been working under her direction during the past three months, and the results have been highly gratifying. The Story Hour in the Branches where there is a Children's Room, and the National Story Hour in the J. Ross Robertson Historical Room, have greatly stimulated the interest of the children of the city, and the Chief Librarian has frequently been commended for inaugurating this movement.
