Once On A Tyme explores The Osborne Collection of Early Children’s Literature at the Toronto Public Library. Mufei Jiang and Mel Rhodes Gray share some of their favourite parts of the collection, and their impressions of its exhibits and events.
The Osborne Collection contains thousands of notable children’s books, original works of art, movable books, children’s games and other artifacts. All of which are available to the public. More information, such as location, hours and a catalogue of holdings, can be found on their website.
Mufei and Mel would like to thank Professor Carol Percy, of the University of Toronto, for the opportunity to work on this project.
