If you like like libraries, this is a must do. The reference section is world class. The overall ambiance is refreshing.
Plenty of local flavor if you like to people watch too.

This major Toronto mid-town reference library(and other sites across the GTA) has been hosting a variety of events including literary writers like Thomas King in their 2nd floor Salon where you have access to bar & light snacks while you enjoy the event of the day and you can Mix & Mingle with friend & associates at the end of the Salon. It was the gallery on the main floor that was great to me of its very meaningful display of Indigenous history and culture.

The internet doesn't even work, literally slower than dial up internet from 2006, been like this for hours and the people that work there are so uptight and annoying. Would not recommend.
