Biblio Bash Raises over $1 Million
The Toronto Public Library Foundation smashed fundraising records, reaching an unprecedented $1,025,400 in support of TPL. Toronto’s library lovers joined business leaders, philanthropists and city builders at Biblio Bash, presented by Tricon Residential. Attended by 41 authors and over 450 guests, our sold-out black tie gala was dedicated to raising funds for TPL’s Leading to Reading Program to ensure capacity increase for this essential program across the city.
Leading to Reading is a free TPL service that assists children who struggle with reading. Students are paired with a volunteer tutor to help develop skills, build confidence and make reading a positive experience. Learning and social programs at Toronto Public Library provide children, particularly those living in underserved communities, with equitable access to developmental support that put them on a path to future success.
