A massive beehive of students and academics. It's a place to go - to see it and take in the atmosphere, find a book and sit in one of the many, many quiet spots and learn. But there is always the feeling of potential here; like if you aren't there on a research project digging into something, it makes you wish you were.

Huge space, but I think I've been there on the wrong day. It was entirely PACKED and really hard to breath (as shown on the pictures).There is a gift shop though! It has really cute and trendy reactionaries, just a little pricey.Good place to go for public libraries and resources. But if you do have access to private university libraries, it is better off going there just for the vibes. But for certain types of books, the reference library has a greater selection.

This library should be the pride and joy of our city. Instead, it's an embarrassment. Where shall we start? How about that the washrooms have not been cleaned for over a week. Or with the homeless people sleeping on all the chairs, preventing me from accessing a computer. You also have homeless people that just use the library to charge their phones. The last time I visited this library was 20 years ago. Now that I have kids, I will definitely work hard to provide them with the computer and resources that they need to be successful, so they will never have to come to this place. It is extremely unsafe and filthy.

I LOVE the reference library. Its huge, full of work spaces and makes for an awesome office (for the day). Only downside is that the bathrooms arent always the cleanest - but you can easily go to one of the higher floors where theres less traffic. Overall - stunning space, right downtown, with all the books and plugs (for laptops) you could ever need!

We're happy to be a preferred caterer at Toronto Reference Library! It's been a favourite among our clients for many years - our brides & grooms especially! The magical moment of a bride arriving down the elevator viewed from the atrium is always spectacular! Beth & the TRL team are true professionals and we love working with them:)
