Support Canadian Library Month
Celebrating Canadian Library Month!

October is Canadian Library Month.

It’s the perfect time to celebrate giving back to the busiest public library system in the world – Toronto Public Library. In October, we’re uniting all Torontonians to donate to our Bookmobile Community Campaign and help us purchase a new TPL Bookmobile.

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference and is an investment in the health and vitality of our world-class city. Starting October 1 and throughout the month, give and support your Library.

Bookmobiles are Awesome!
Why is the TPL Bookmobile so important?
The purchase of a new Bookmobile will provide under-served communities with improved access to a full range of library services and expert staff. TPL’s unique mobile library currently makes stops across the city, including apartment complexes, shopping malls, community centres and family shelters and has an on board collection targeted to children, youth, seniors and newcomers. Bookmobiles can also offer free Wi-Fi, online resources and serve as a community gathering space for indoor and outdoor programming such as story time for families.
