Last Chance: Pop Sherlock Closes October 22!
You don't have to be a detective to deduce that our exhibit, Pop Sherlock, is ending soon! You have until Sunday, October 22 to see it at the Toronto Reference Library's TD Gallery. Admission is always free and the exhibit is open to the public during regular library hours.
The exhibit celebrates Sherlock Holmes as the ultimate pop culture icon, examining his influence in every kind of popular media – stage productions, film, animation, television, comic books, toys, advertising and everywhere in between.
Pop Sherlock features an eclectic array of items from the library's Arthur Conan Doyle Collection including books, manuscripts, music, graphic arts, TV stills, movie scripts, ephemera and more.
Toronto Public Library has a world-class collection of all things related to the life and work of Sherlock Holmes' creator, Arthur Conan Doyle. The collection (housed on the 5th floor of the Toronto Reference Library in the Marilyn & Charles Baillie Special Collections Centre) benefits from the tireless support of a volunteer group known as the Friends of the Arthur Conan Doyle Collection. This year, they celebrate their 20th anniversary!
Interested in learning more about what the Friends do or just meeting up with other Sherlockian supporters?
Join us on Saturday, October 21 at 2 p.m. in Beeton Hall at the Toronto Reference Library for An Afternoon with the Friends of the Arthur Conan Doyle Collection. There will be a screening of the movie The Scarlet Claw starring Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes, followed by a curator's tour of the Pop Sherlock exhibit.
Whether you are new to the Great Detective, or a long-time fan and supporter of the collection, you'll want to check out the exhibit before it closes.
