“check it out”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

There are usually readings and other activities on the offer here. The building has been undergoing construction but it is almost over. There is a used bookstore inside the building with good prices.

“Toronto libraries are great”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

Toronto Public Libraries are great. They have an incredible selection of books. You can select a book at any locationa nd will be sent to where you ask for it to go. For free. Many of them re interesting architecturally and others act as community hubs for meetings, lectures etc. They greatly enhance the liveability of the city.
