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