    “I remember years and years ago when I was unemployed the library was like a refuge.  It was an important part of my day.”

    The city forgets that the Bloor Gladstone Library is as much a restful refuge as a place to find answers.  This well-loved library just celebrated its 100th anniversary and recently underwent a beautiful renovation to bring more light and life into the space where people work, study, learn and relax.  Situated on a busy downtown corner near the intersection of Bloor and Dufferin, this branch gets heavy use. A crowd gathers before it opens each morning and it is bustling until closure. The library is open all day, every day, except Sundays, when it is closed in the mornings and sometimes altogether.  Find out more about the sign the DEPARTMENT made to celebrate the Bloor Gladstone Library.  We unveiled this sign during a forum at City Hall to discuss the future of the Toronto Public Library system.

    The Bloor Gladstone Library has a rich history.  How could this library become even more integral to the neighbourhood it serves?
