The photo above is from the Calgary Public Library's archives. This picture was taken during "Library Hour" at a public school in the 1920s. Miss Hopkins, CPL's first Children's Librarian, started the program in 1914, bringing books to schools with no budget for books, and extolling the joys of reading. This "traveling library" was the first of its kind in Canada.
