Booked a meeting room here days in advance and the guy on the phone confirmed that they would reserve it. When I got there on the day of, I found out they gave it away to someone else. There was some kind of tech expo going on and a vendor needed the room to display their garbage. I guess they are more important than people who actually need to study. If they could've at least given a heads up it wouldn't be as bad, but apparently they don't do that. So you have to go all the way down there just to find out you don't have the room and end up having to change your plans. Very inconvenient and a waste of time. No apology or accountability shown by the front desk staff either. The only explanation I got was "your name is crossed out, so it's a no-go".
This is absolutely the most beautiful library I have ever had the pleasure of visiting, it's grand design is fantastic. The facilities within it are even better and are unmatched by any other library within the GTA. For practically anything to do with books, services and much more I recommend giving it a tour and signing up for a card!
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 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.
