Toronto Public Library, Toronto
(4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Admire the architecture and collection of Toronto Public Library, a large public reference library. Designed by architect Raymond Moriyama, the building first opened in 1977 and today houses a collection of over 1,650,000 catalogued items. Move around the library's five floors, hearing the studious hum of the city's students and workers as they explore the primarily non-circulating collection. The central curving atrium adds to the sense of scale and openness across the library, providing lines of sight across all floors, and letting in natural light through the skylights. A visit to Toronto Public Library represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Toronto itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • The service well, the sophisticated, if not present in the local branch is you can order it in a store online. Really great and it's free. There are books, CDs, DVDs, magazines and newspapers, as well as courses and much more, all for free.

  • This Library gets the job done if you want to read while you are abroad. I think locals must just use a range of libraries or book stores because this was almost empty! at least the shelves were full....  more »

  • Came on a Sunday and it was closed. Main sign only said seasonal. Sign on the side a few feet away said until September.
  • Not a bad library. It's free books right how can you go wrong.
  • Good place small though and where the computers are there's a lot of talking.
  • Use to go there alot. bit for the past few years, it's just a cybercafe for loud kids playing minecraft.... even cyber cafes are quieter..
  • Good location !!
