This space has lots of potential, and the library works hard to ensure that these spaces remain accessible to smaller groups and nonprofits. In fact, there are several arts spaces at libraries across the city, including the recently unveiled York Woods Arts Hub. Libraries that don’t have arts spaces often have accessible meeting space. If you’re interested in booking space at a local library branch, you can contact Auditorium, Theatre, and Meeting Room Rentals at roombookingunit@torontopubliclibrary.ca or 416-397-5969.
