Message to visitors to Toronto: Use the library to email and stay in touch with home
  
One of the most frequently asked questions, according to information centres in
Toronto, is "where can visitors get free access to computers with Internet and
email?"

The Toronto Public Library has the answer: "We have it!"

With 98 library branches across the city, over 1000 terminals with free high
speed Internet, email and chat, plus newspapers and magazines from around the
world, the library is the best way visitors to Toronto can stay in touch with
home.

The Toronto Reference Library, the flagship of the Toronto Public Library
fleet, is equipped with over 100 computer workstations, has books and other
material in over 80 languages, and a new newspaper centre with over 100
newspapers from around the world. The library also features exhibits and
displays that visitors and Torontonians alike will find fascinating and
informative. Visitors to the Toronto Reference Library this summer will see
the exhibit Toronto: A Meeting Place and learn about the history of Toronto
through this collection of intriguing artifacts and artwork.

"Welcome" brochures with listings of Toronto Public Library services of
interest to visitors can be picked up at Access Toronto's information centres
at Toronto City Hall and all city civic centres; the information kiosk at the
Eaton Centre; as well as at any Toronto Public Library.

Toronto Public Library is North America's busiest public library system with 98
branches. Every week, over 300,000 people visit its branches, and borrow more
than half a million items. For more information about the Toronto Public
Library, please call Answerline at 416-393-7131 or visit the library's Web site
