Put your stamp on it

We love people who love the Library!  Back in 2015, the Toronto Library Passport was launched when a clever graphic designer created it and gave it to his girlfriend, a book lover. The story went viral, and since then its become a fun way to explore all 100 TPL branches. Purchase one in October directly from Avro Design, and $3 from each sale will be donated to the Library.
