Donate to our Love TPL Community Campaign

A $40 donation can provide 5 books for kids who need them most.

When you give to our community campaign, your donation is immediately directed to Toronto Public Library’s highest priority needs. Together we can ensure families in Toronto have the food they need, and children have books to read.

You believe in supporting our city, helping those who are most vulnerable and empowering Torontonians to thrive. You are Library People.

LIBRARY BRANCHES HAVE BECOME FOOD BANK CENTRES

Even with branches closed, Toronto Public Library continues to serve our community in unique and valuable ways. When more than 1/3 of food banks closed, we quickly turned twelve of our library branches into food centres to support those who are most vulnerable in our city. To date, we have helped feed over 11,000 people. And now with your help, TPL is adding free children’s books to family food hampers to keep kids reading, learning and thriving during these challenging times.
