The Toronto Public Library’s Biblio Bash has fast become the must-attend gala for top authors, philanthropists, business leaders and library lovers. This year’s event takes place on April 25, 2019. For the first time ever, the Foundation is launching our Biblio Bash Community Campaign so all Torontonians can contribute to this initiative and help us reach our goal.


Donate by April 30 and direct your gift to support the priority of your choice.


1. Helping Children Succeed in School and Thrive in Life

We address the ongoing needs of Toronto children by equipping TPL After School Clubs with exceptional programs, essential materials,and the nutritional snacks they require to allow kids to concentrate and complete their homework




2. Bringing Books and Information to Under-Served Communities across the city

Our mobile, community and outreach services ensure that all Torontonians – especially those who don’t live in close proximity to a branch – can take advantage of all the Library has to offer. The TPL Bookmobile enables under-served communities to gain easy access to books, expert library staff and free WiFi.



Thank you! When you give to Toronto Public Library you make a meaningful difference in your community. Every donation, big or small helps create opportunities and access for Torontonians who rely on the Library’s life-changing programs, services, collections and community spaces.
