'Tis the season to love
Toronto Public Library

Libraries matter now, more than ever.

Toronto Public Library is serving the needs of Torontonians who rely on our vital resources.

TPL branches are open for curbside pickup of holds and Digital Access Cards are available online.

TPL.ca is a destination for homework help, literacy classes, job search tools and e-learning opportunities.

A library card provides free access to entertainment such as movies, TV shows, music, and so much more.

Every donation matters and is immediately directed to the Library’s highest priority needs during the pandemic.


Donations help provide vital connections during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meet a few participants from TPL's Internet Connectivity Kit program.

“Thank you so much for your help in providing myself and family with this beautiful laptop computer. I must say, the internet that comes with it is a blessing. Like so many other mothers, this program will help many continue their education online, maybe open a business, or like myself write a book. I feel this NEEDS to continue. Imagine all the lives this could change.”

– Jennifer T.

“My life has changed. Access to a computer and the internet has allowed me to meet my family in my home country, share with my friends from the seniors’ club, explore and discover places in the world that I did not know. It has allowed me to have appointments with my doctor. I felt depressed and sad, but everything has changed. I am no longer isolated from the world, and now I am delighted.”

– Sonia V.

“Thank you so much to Toronto Public Library and donors for the laptop and Wi-Fi for me to have opportunities to access social media platforms, especially Facebook. I can connect to family and friends in Cambodia during COVID-19 pandemic and this helps with my mental health so much.”

– Sari N.
