NotesAlthough this bookplate is labeled as belonging to the Montreal Library for Boys and Girls, it is likely referring to the Montreal Children's Library which was founded in 1929. This is supported by the fact that it contains a replicate image of two children reading which is also featured on the Montreal Children's Library bookplate. See, BP MUR CAN I M6687a
