The New Dawes Road Library & Community Hub Project

About the Project

Toronto Public Library is excited to announce that plans have been launched to reconstruct the Dawes Road branch. The entire branch will be reconstructed at its current location and expanded to also include a Community Hub run by the City of Toronto. All public spaces will be revitalized to ensure that they meet the needs of our vibrant community. We hope you’ll join a future community consultation and share your thoughts on this exciting new project.

We hope you can join us!

We’re seeking local youth ages 13-24 to provide input and feedback towards the future Dawes Road Library & Community Hub. Please join library and city staff in a community conversation about this exciting reconstruction & expansion with a focus on services and spaces for youth. No registration required.

Upon request, attendees will be provided with a letter confirming their participation and attendance at this meeting, to be applied toward high school community service hours.
