Here at the Leatherby Libraries, we have a combination of permanent and temporary displays. On the third floor of the library we have the Learning Through Play: Children’s Toys from the 19th and 20th Centuries. This collection of over 100 antique toys was donated by collector Ralph L. Tomlinson.
The display highlights various toys including toy soldiers, toy trains, animals and race cars.
Antique airplane carousel.
Variety of toy vehicles.
Circus animals and circus clown.
And a miniature Radio Flyer.
The following article from the OC Register gives a peek at the items on display on each floor of the library:
