 Calgary'​s Library director, William R. Castell, said that “‘Louie’ Riley was known as one of the finest librarians for children’s work in Canada.” Louise Riley was an ardent exponent of reading for children – the best books of course. She wrote many articles highlighting books for youngsters in the Calgary Herald and she broadcast weekly storyhours on radio CFAC-AM. Twice she travelled to Toronto to work with Lillian Smith at Boys and Girls House. In her position on the Alberta Library Board she worked to form regional library systems in her home province. In the later part of her career, she turned to writing books for children. The Riley name was well known in Calgary and the land where a branch in her name rests originally belonged to her family.\\ Calgary'​s Library director, William R.
