City of Libraries: The Toronto Library “Passport” Book Coming Soon
A wonderful idea for a superb and popular library in an awesome city. We like!
By the way, the Toronto Public Library opened their 100th branch on May 20, 2015.
Sometimes, it pays to be a tourist in your own city. With that idea in mind, designer Noah Ortmann has created the Toronto Library Passport Book. The impetus is simple: encourage Torontonians to venture beyond their home branches and explore the city’s 100 locations…
In addition to a list of library branch names and locations, the slim and elegantly designed notebook invites users to describe each library in one word, list the best thing about each respective branch, and rate the library on a scale of one to 10.
