A note to any Toronto denizens or those who work in the 416: The Toronto Public Library shows itself once again to be the best public service in the city! Armed with your library card and PIN, you can access The Civil War Times, America’s Civil War and Civil War History for free, online. Simply do a search for those titles and look for the orange “access online” button to log in.
The regular holdings are pretty sweet, too – I stopped by the Reference Library last week and saw an entire stack of Civil War related books. Remember, too, that interlibrary shipments are free and easy to schedule.
(If the brothers Ford wind up locking out the library staff next month, I think I may have to sharpen up the ol’ pitchfork, grab some flaming torches, and march on City Hall.)
