Free Events at the Toronto Public Libraries

In order to keep the post-retirement entertainment budget under control, we always look for low-cost or free events that are fun.  We've learned that the Toronto Public Libraries offer a wide range of lectures, author talks and book readings, interest courses on a variety of topics, exhibits and other events that are interesting and even educational, but best of all, free!  They even offer free passes to Toronto museum and historical sites.  Using your library card, a pass can be checked out once a week, but you cannot pick the same location for at least 3 months.

The Toronto Reference Library's TD Gallery holds rotating exhibitions featuring books, documents, drawings, paintings, sculpture and other artifacts from the library's collections.  A previous exhibit, titled "Royal Fanfare", dealt with ceremonies such as birthdays, funerals, coronations and royal visits, related to associated with monarchies through history and across different European countries.

The current exhibit "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes"displays artifacts related to the iconic detective and his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
