Every branch is bustling with people of diverse ages and cultures.

A lot of people talk about how Toronto is divided, ignoring the things that unify us, like our library system. Within these pages you will find a love letter to the Toronto Public Library, created by urban geographer Daniel Rotsztain. Rotsztain’s quest to illustrate all one hundred branches (plus two bookmobiles!) of North America’s most used library system took him to every corner of the city, at a time when the notion of a downtown-suburbs divide was reaching a fever pitch.

All the Libraries Toronto is a celebration of Toronto’s beloved public book-lending service, whose constant adaptation to the city’s changing needs is playing a part in the emergence of libraries as one of the most important urban spaces of the twenty-first century.In this book, Rotsztain invites you along to explore the city’s unique neighbourhoods and architecture through its temples to books, from the vast to the humble, with nothing but your own pencil crayons or marker set.
