“Toronto is Reading”

From 1941 to 1957, the Toronto Public Library released a monthly list of the twelve most requested fiction and non-fiction titles for the previous month, ranked with the most requested title first. These lists were then printed in various Toronto newspapers. In the Toronto Star the lists were published under the headline “Toronto is Reading.”
I have compiled these lists to allow for easier access to this data.
