The staff and services are great! But the library stinks. Dear Management, Tables and keyboards are sticky, bathrooms are always dirty, and the whole library smells. Thank you.
Beautiful library. Great for studying or reading. There are lots of interesting events and conventions that go on here. You can even rent out the convention room for weddings! (In fact I got married here! :D)There are some books on the first floor that are for check out but otherwise its mostly a reference library which means you cant check the books out. There is a used bookstore tucked away in the back of the main floor as well, behind the art exhibit. The gift shop Pages and Panels is also incredibly cute and has a lot of great stuff for gifts.This is my favourite library in the city and Ive been to a bunch.
The library is spacious, beautiful and modern. There are so many seats for people to read. It also has washrooms. One of my favorite libraries. Highly recommend
Beautiful Modern Information SpaceSpacious and modern, this branch has various equipment and rooms to provide information: from computers with Internet and printing, digital hub for 3d design and print, green screen and video recording and editing room, self published printing of books, televisions, and private spaces for group study and meetings. Toronto has hundreds of branches and this is one of the best. Library cards are free with proof of address including usage of all the above. Upstairs are shelves of books and more study and reading spaces. There are also various events and talks hosted in this branch that are free to attend and participate in.

I LOVE the reference library. Its huge, full of work spaces and makes for an awesome office (for the day). Only downside is that the bathrooms arent always the cleanest - but you can easily go to one of the higher floors where theres less traffic. Overall - stunning space, right downtown, with all the books and plugs (for laptops) you could ever need!
Every time we host an event in this modern cathedral, our guests are inspired, engaged and enthused to be in attendance. We understand your desire to impress a customer or a client. You may want to create or enhance a presentation; recognize an accomplishment or milestone, reward hard working employees; or celebrate a success. The perfect backdrop for our large-scale events, guests swoon at the open concept and marvel at the prominent design elements. Centrally located, with easy access to all, the only thing guests leave with are satisfied smiles, sense of awe.and a wish to be invited back once again!
One of the most unique spaces we have the pleasure to work in!
We would never hesitate to recommend this venue to our clients whom are looking to host an event at an exquisite venue space downtown Toronto!
Have you thought of doing an event in one of the most iconic landmark in Toronto? This event space definitely stands out amongst the library crown. Unique, artistic, brilliant seated event space that could accommodate over 1,000 guests. This venue makes a huge statement on its own.
We're happy to be a preferred caterer at Toronto Reference Library! It's been a favourite among our clients for many years - our brides & grooms especially! The magical moment of a bride arriving down the elevator viewed from the atrium is always spectacular! Beth & the TRL team are true professionals and we love working with them:)
