Toronto Off The Beaten Path: 335 reviews and 496 photos
I know, you're probably thinking "why the heck would I want to go to the library when I'm on holiday?". The Toronto Reference Library is a hidden architectural gem in the city. The building was designed by Raymond Moriyama and opened in 1977. To truly appreciate it, you must go inside. For me, the interior is reminiscent of the Guggenheim in NYC. I am surprised it as not as popular with tourists as the New York Public Library is.
In addition to its appeal from an architectural standpoint, the Toronto Reference Library has many interesting exhibits, collections and events. For instance, at the moment there is an excellent exhibit about graphic novels. Another feature that might appeal to you is the availability of internet terminals in the library.
The Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge St.) is on the corner of Yonge and Asquith, which is just north of Bloor and Yonge.
The hours are:
Monday to Thursday 1000-2030
