The richest person in the world – in fact all the riches in the world – couldn’t provide you with anything like the endless incredible loot available at your local library. ~ Malcolm Forbes
I’m a big fan of the Toronto Public Library, not because they’re all around the GTA making it easier not to have to walk more than 7km to find a friendly staffed library filled with books. I don’t travel to the one closest to me, because I’m partial to the Richview library by my old home. Recently, the Richview library underwent some renovations and considering that there were extensive changes happening, they remained upbeat and functional while working out of their small basement. Recently, they reopened their doors and issued this statement welcoming back the community to their new and improved location.
I couldn’t wait to go check it out and when I went the other day I was so surprised and impressed with the location that I took a few pictures on my cell phone to share with all of you the improvements that were made! Please ignore the blurry shots, my phone and I don’t coordinate well with one another all the time:
Although it wasn’t particularily “quiet”, I think there was a lot of buzz and excitement about their new layout. If you’re out in the west end, it’s definately worth a visit! Remember to always utilize your nearest library – what’s better than a great environment and free books! 🙂
