Fodor's Review

Honoring the memory of the city's first children's librarian, this branch maintains nearly 60,000 items in three children's collections, ranging from the 14th century to the present. In addition, the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy includes about 50,000 items, on everything from parapsychology to UFOs. The Electronic Resource Centre has 32 public terminals for online access.
