SUPPORT YOUR LIBRARY
Donate to the Biblio Bash Community Campaign.
Toronto Public Library ensures all Torontonians have free access to the tools they need to put them on the path to lifelong success.
With 100 branches across the city, the Library is a vibrant community hub and thriving organization that is an indispensable part of the lives of over 70% of Torontonians who rely on its programs and services every year. Funds raised at Biblio Bash 2019 will support two important Toronto Public Library priorities.
BRINGING BOOKS & INFORMATION TO UNDER-SERVED COMMUNITIES
We make certain Torontonians not located in close proximity to a library branch have easy access to books, library staff, and free WiFi by raising funds to put toward the purchase of a new TPL Bookmobile.
HELPING CHILDREN SUCCEED IN SCHOOL AND THRIVE IN LIFE
We address the ongoing needs of Toronto children by equipping TPL After-School Clubs with the essential materials, experienced staff and nutritional snacks they require to allow kids to concentrate and complete their homework.
