“Free wifi for everyone”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Of course, there are books and all the usual library things! Browse their travel collections. Some are travel destinations - for example, the Sherlock Holmes room at Toronto Reference Library; the Merril Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy; the children's areas.

Most visitors will most appreciate the free wifi, available at all branches. No library card needed. Wherever you are in the city, you are sure to be near a public library branch.

“Excellent workplace away from home”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Just walk in and make use of this welcoming building with plenty of working space. It looks like they also have an interesting programme of activities like lectures etc. I also liked the interior architecture. Very nice public library.

“Home Delivery Service Is Amazing”

I have been receiving home delivery for a while and I have been impressed by the quality of service, the choice of books according to my profile is wonderful. I don't know what I would do without this service.

“The way a library should be”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

This place is a librarians dream. It's astounding how massive the space is - so much open space and yet it is still one of the largest collections of book I've ever seen.

This might not suit the weekend tourist. But for the toronto native who needs a relaxed atmosphere to study or decompress with a book - this is where you need to be.
