Toronto’s 100th Library Takes Design Cues from the Bluffs

Scheduled to open this spring, the branch will feature modern ammenities like 3D printers

By Graeme Bayliss

The Toronto Public Library’s newest branch is much more than a mere book repository – no bluffing. OK, some bluffing. Designed by LGA Architectural Partners, along with Phillip H. Carter Architecture + Urban Planning, the Scarborough Civic Centre Branch features bright windows, glue-laminated timber and sloping green roofs that recall the nearby Bluffs. Inside is a digital innovation hub, and outside a modern public plaza with a reading garden. torontopubliclibrary.ca
