  • If you're looking for a book, you'll find it here. And because it's a reference library, you'll have to sit down and look through the book instead of taking it home with you. I find it comforting that this place hasn't changed much in the many years I've been coming here. There is a ton of seating and despite the number of people making use of the space, it's still a quiet spot where you can get your work done.

  • Their architecture looks lovely. I went in during rush hours and thought there were no more seat but i was still able to find a seat to use a computer. The front desk lady was very helpful about printing.

  • This library is one of my top two public libraries to work at! A large collection of books and an amazing, quiet place to work. The only thing is that I don't like close to it; otherwise I will probably be visiting at least once a week!

  • This is probably the biggest library I've been to, with the exception of University libraries. I love how every floor is different, and there are so many computers! Because I am not actually a resident of Toronto, I was still granted a visitor's pass to access them. That's pretty neat right? The computers are not old, the keyboards are actually newer than the ones I have at home! I don't know how to describe this place except that you really should come here to see it for yourself. The noise level does vary depending on where you are. I would say the rooms are probably good for group projects or solo study sessions lols. The washrooms are not the nicest, but it will do for now. I love how there is a coffee place that is directly attached to the library as well. I really don't ask for much in a library, but this place is somewhere I would go to if I ever need to kill time. It's a library I wish Markham would have as well in the future.

  • A very good library, not the best in Toronto but still very good. Staff can be very rude, especially the female staff. Security guards are useless and my experience is that they sit around not doing much when certain things are happening in the library. In the past month or two, I have seen at least 3 fights in and around the bookstore and loud disturbances. Security needs to tighten up a bit. Nice coffee shop which is accessible from the library and the library bookstore called BookEnds is a little gem. I have found some great books there for 80 times less than Chapters.
