Wireless Internet Access

Free wireless Internet access is available at every branch. Grab your laptop and a coffee and visit your local library. We won't even rush you out the door when you're done enjoying your beverage.

Bring your laptop or other wireless device (must be 802.11 b/g compliant) and connect to Toronto Public Library.
