IBBY Collection at Toronto Public Library


IBBY Collection at the Toronto Public Library

The IBBY Documentation Centre is located in the Children’s Department of North York Central Library on the main floor.

Researchers, teachers, students, families with children and other interested individuals are invited to visit the centre during library hours.

Though the collection is reference and must be used in the library, librarians are happy to help you find the books you need.

Circulating copies of many of the recent outstanding IBBY books are available for check out with a Toronto Public Library card or by interlibrary loan.
