'HIS pictures the sort of thing the Public Library does every
November at its Children's Book Exhibit in the Exhibition
room. This year, as you will surmise from the warlike weapons
in the background and the gentle ladies in the foreground,
the central idea is the romance of chivalry to give a distinctive note.
But all sorts of children's books are on display and so far the attendance has been larger than ever, about 5,000. The children have come
singly and in class groups, and have been pleasingly enthusiastic. Scores
of mothers and teachers have also come in to examine the books and get
suggestions for Christmas and the home library.
