Toronto Public Library plans to open new branch in 2014

Due to the rise of the internet and the increasing popularity of tablets and iPads, many libraries across North America aren’t frequented quite as much as they used to be. But that’s not the case in Toronto. In fact, attendance there is so good, they’re expanding yet again.

The Toronto Public Library recently announced that it’s planning to build a brand new 15,000-square-foot branch that will be built in the Trinity Spadina community, offering all the services that the main building provides.

Among the amenities, the Trinity Spadina branch will house several meeting and study spaces and be fully furnished with internet technology, which will enable students, professionals and visitors to research, work and learn.

The branch, which will become the Toronto Public Library’s 100th, is expected to open in 2014.

With 32 million items borrowed per year, the Toronto Public Library certainly has one of the most comprehensive collections of tomes. But Canadian homeowners’ personal libraries are large as well and limited space can make maintaining them difficult. Storage units at Jiffy serve as an ideal place to house books, documents and legal papers.
