Retired

This year’s weak summer-project is to visit every library on the University of Toronto Campus. I’d start today if only it weren’t raining.

I collected this little pamphlet map at OISE a couple of months back. On both sides it lists the various libraries.

When I was studying for my degree fifty-five years ago, I sat in Reid Library. I can’t say that I was conscious of any other libraries on campus, but there must surely have been a library in the schools of Geology, Chemistry and Physics.

About forty library names appear on the pamphlet, but many are duplicated (“See: Robarts Library”), so reckon on twenty libraries.

I already know OISE library, it has a used book table which always yields a good picking for me.

That reminds me, I must re-visit the textile museum library and read the volume on the operation of the Jacquard Loom.

Where do I live? “A” marks the spot. The streets are shown, but I am north of College street and west of Yonge street.
