Welcome to Biblio Bash
We’re excited to bring together Toronto philanthropists, business leaders, city builders and library lovers on April 20, 2023 in the Toronto Reference Library for Biblio Bash, Presented by Tricon Residential. Our gala celebration will raise funds and awareness for TPL’s popular Leading to Reading service. This well-loved and vital program is expanding to more library branches so we can help even more kids in our city. As a Biblio Bash supporter, you are making a tremendous difference in the lives of Torontonians who rely on TPL for access to the free library resources they need to thrive.
Leading to Reading is a free service for children (ages 6-12) who are reading and writing below their grade level. Kids meet weekly with a volunteer to receive one-on-one help, encouragement to build confidence, and motivation to improve literacy skills that help them succeed in school.
Learning and social programs at TPL provide children, particularly those living in underserved communities, with equitable access to education and developmental support that put them on a path to future success.
