I encourage reading books, (I don't mean picture books with no written content).
Reading helps your imagination, keeps your brain active and may help in preventing Alzheimer's disease.
It is also known to be therapeutic and can help with memory.
So what are you waiting for?
Grab a great book at your local Toronto Library or buy one from any bookstore.
Supporting your local library would be great, they have a large selection. You will need a library card. If you don't have one you can sign up in person (bring government ID/proof of identity and address). Some library locations are larger than others, the Toronto reference library is the largest in Toronto and it's located around Yonge and Bloor St. area.
If you have many books your done reading or don't want anymore you can donate them to your local Toronto public library (see criteria below).
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR DONATING TO TORONTO PUBLIC LIBRARY:
Material must be in very good condition and less than five years old
Only English and French books, CDs and DVDs will be accepted. For books, we prefer popular fiction and nonfiction in hardcover, mass market and trade paperbacks
Any other material, including magazines, computer books, textbooks, encyclopaedias and multilingual material will not be accepted by staff
If your materials don't meet these criteria please consider donating them to other non-profit organizations.
