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.

  • 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 !!
