 We were grieved to learn of the death of our dear friend and colleague Lori McLeod, who passed away in December from cancer. Lori obtained her M.L.S. degree at the University of Toronto’s library school, now the Faulty of Information,​ and began at working at the Toronto Public Library’s Osborne Collection of Early Children’s Books not long after the Collection opened in its Huron Street location, in the Lillian H. Smith branch. Lori chose Osborne after being redeployed from Deer Park, and how fortunate we at Osborne were when she arrived and began at once to study the cataloguing of rare books. Often having to chart her own instruction and to seek out knowledge, Lori was delighted to be sent, largely through the generosity of The Friends of the Osborne and Lillian H. Smith Collections,​ to Rare Book School in Virginia for a specialized,​ intensive course. The cataloguing of the Osborne Collection was Lori’s priority, and the support given to this important project by the library and especially by the Friends gave her great encouragement.\\ We were grieved to learn of the death of our dear friend and colleague Lori McLeod, who passed away in December from cancer.
