“Excellent workplace away from home”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Just walk in and make use of this welcoming building with plenty of working space. It looks like they also have an interesting programme of activities like lectures etc. I also liked the interior architecture. Very nice public library.

“Home Delivery Service Is Amazing”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

I have been receiving home delivery for a while and I have been impressed by the quality of service, the choice of books according to my profile is wonderful. I don't know what I would do without this service.

“The way a library should be”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

This place is a librarians dream. It's astounding how massive the space is - so much open space and yet it is still one of the largest collections of book I've ever seen.

This might not suit the weekend tourist. But for the toronto native who needs a relaxed atmosphere to study or decompress with a book - this is where you need to be.

“Great programming, book selection and space”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great programming, book selection and space. Love my home brunch in North York Center. Kids love the children's section and story time. Also love the Overdrive app to borrow books on-line.
