We are the Toronto Public Library Foundation.
We believe that the character and quality of a city depends on the resources available to its people. We believe that a great library is a fundamental requirement for any city to achieve its full social and economic potential. We believe that Toronto's Library is vital to the city, and vital to support.
This holiday season, you can give the gift of the Library to the readers and book lovers in your life.
For a minimum donation of $10, you can choose from a broad range of images from the Library’s Special Collections and we’ll send a beautiful card to the recipient with a message from you inside.
Your gift will help enhance community spaces, collections and programs at Toronto's Library.To find out more about making a gift in honour or in memory of a loved one for any occasion, click here for more information or to make your gift today.
