North York Central Library - Review
This beautifully decorated library of warm ambience has over half a million items in its research and reference collection coloring books, other printed material, videos end tapes. It has a good collection of material on the history of North York, an overview of the local Native American history, a historical teen fiction section, and a large collection of historical Canadian newspapers which goes back to the 19th century. It is worth of quick stop if you're a bibliophile.

North York Central Library, Toronto Reviews
An incredible space with a variety of resources and work areas and quiet spaces. It has everything including a 3d printer/maker area, a new fashion design/maker area, helpful staff, terrific play areas for kids, an abundance of the usual library resources of books, cds, dvds, magazines, etc...and it is beautifully designed. It is a place for people to do, work, read, create, learn...(so shocked by the negative 1 star reviews. Plus it is right by a very beautiful and well designed park that also offers so much. Heading there now, out of my way because the vibe there is so great.
The library is reopen today (July 5,2018) for floors 1 and 2 only. Closed for almost 2 years. Now there are lots of open space, but does not have enough seats for readers. It looks like a community centre instead of a library. It is not easy to find a quiet seat for reading and studying. The concourse and floors 3-6 are still under construction. Nobody knows when it will be full reopen. They spent almost 2 years on floors 1 and 2, and perhaps they need another 5 years to complete the concourse and floors 3-6.
I have been to this library many times and i have never been so disappointed!!!! First of all a group of women decided to come sit down and have a conversation while I was studying. Then i decided to get up and move to a different location where a women was playing videos on her phone OUT LOUD! When i went to approach a staff member about this problem they said “go tell someone else who works here” ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What kind of staff are the city public libraries hiring these days?! A library is supposed to be a place for a quiet study work environment NOT for loud conversations and disruptions. 100% unacceptable...
Whoa! A lot of racist white employees. Mainly the women. The dirty looks, snears.... One of them even came up from behind while i was using a computer and made a hissing sound over my head as she walked by. My thoughts went to the articles i read in the newspaper last year about the entrenched racism in the The Toronto School Board. So this is why the city admitted that they have a problem that they call, "Anti Black Racism". From now on i will document even the most subtle types of animosity, along with their names.
Only floor 1-2 open today. Lots of empty space and the work areas are very small and narrow. Not enough seating. The staircase is a total failure. Half of it seems to be deemed for seating as there are plugs, I guess they expect people to sit on the stairs. Two years to give it a coat of paint and buy new furniture that are mainly useless. Perhaps another three to finish the other floors. The kindergarten area takes almost half of the first floor whereas it should have been moved to the concourse area. Few people would appreciate trying to read or study surrounded by kids noise. The study room is too small and will get smelly and crowded in no time. Somebody made a lot of money with this reno but the result, for the community, is a total fiasco. Yet another disappointment in a city that has gone down the drain.
