-Accomplishments:​\\+===== Accomplishments: ​===== 
 The first part of Charles Sanderson’s tenure at Toronto Public Library was marked by years of economic depression and wartime stringency. In the postwar period, 1945-56, Sanderson oversaw the advancement of library services with the building of three neighbourhood branches—George H. Locke Memorial Branch, Deer Park Branch, and Parliament Street Branch. TPL also extended its work to elementary schools, hospitals, homes for the aged, and settlement houses. Notably, the Osborne Collection of Early Children'​s Books was donated to TPL in 1949 by Edgar Osborne. Throughout Sanderson’s career he was known to be supportive and generous: Dr. Freda Waldon recounted that “one of the things you could always count on with Sandy was that he would take time to consider any question you brought to him and give you the benefit of his experience.”\\ The first part of Charles Sanderson’s tenure at Toronto Public Library was marked by years of economic depression and wartime stringency.
