One of Toronto’s greatest feats is its library system. Not only is it the largest public library system in Canada, but it’s the largest neighbourhood-based system in the world. With 100 libraries spanning all across the city, the city’s collection has over 12 million items in total for use by the public.
Our Library District Condos is proudly being built right beside Toronto’s 99th library, the Fort York Library! This 16,000 square foot library will be just steps away from our 29-storey condo at Bathurst and Fort York, making it a great neighbourhood amenity for our owners.
Although our neighbourhood library is one of the city’s newest, many of the other public libraries in the city have been around for a long, long time. Let’s take a look back at a few of them:
Toronto Reference Library
Dufferin/St. Clair Library
Runnymede Branch Public Library
Gerrard Ashdale Library
Sigmund Samuel Library
