MAP Performing Arts Pass

The Performing Arts pilot has ended, and is expected to resume in early 2019. You can continue to borrow MAP passes at your local branch.


The MAP Performing Arts program gives you access to Toronto's best dance, music, film, theatre and more — for free! All you need is a valid adult library card.

How to get a pass

  1. Visit a participating branch. Sign out a pass with your library card at participating branches on the last Saturday of each month. The pass is good for two people and valid for three months from the day you sign it out. Each participating branch will have three passes on a first-come, first-served basis.
  2. Choose your performance. Check out the performance schedule for the venues. We'll update the schedule on the 1st of each month.
  3. Book your tickets. Call the venue box office to check availability and reserve your tickets. Please note ticket quantities are limited.
  4. Pick up your tickets. Reserved tickets can be picked up at the box office at least 30 minutes before the performance unless otherwise specified. Remember to bring your Performing Arts Pass, the library receipt, your library card and your photo ID.

Note: The Performing Arts Pass is a pilot program running at select branches mid-February to July 2019. Thank you for participating. Since this is a pilot, your feedback is important to us. Please talk to library staff or contact us.
