Toronto Public Library, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review

  • If you haven't been to a library in a long time, you owe to yourself to check out the Toronto Reference Library. It's not just branch in the Toronto system. It serves as the flagship location for non-fiction resources for all of Toronto. The huge facility is beautiful, an award-winning design by fame architect Raymond Moriyama. There is so much more than books here. This can be a great place to meet or work. There are also significant event facilities in the building with many great free presentations. Relatively recent renovations and expansion have only made the facilities better.

  • Beautiful library. Great for studying or reading. There are lots of interesting events and conventions that go on here. You can even rent out the convention room for weddings! There are some books on the first floor that are for check out but otherwise it’s mostly a reference library which means you can’t check the books out. This is my favourite library in the city and I’ve been to a bunch.

  • I love this place but only thing always disgusts me here is washroom which is always extremely smelly & most of the times out of order. Whoever in the charge of washroom cleaning...plz..plz..look into this issue. I spend a lot of time there for my study & everyday this place makes me feel special except that washroom thing. I would love to rate 5* but just wanted to attract attention so that someone in the admin can look into the thing. Thanks.

  • Beautiful modern library near Yonge and Bloor. Free WiFi. Very helpful staff. Great quiet place to read and relax.

  • Great library, little unconfortable for afternoon of study but it has a large collection for neurosciences, neuroeconomics and applied sciences of finance, brain and economics. That's really great for work.
