Junction Triangle Library Project

100 Day Survey

A group of local residents is working with the support of Councillor Ana Bailao to expand the Perth/Dupont branch of the Toronto Public Library. As an important community resource, we want to determine what Junction Triangle residents want in their local library.

The 100 Day Survey is ten questions that will form part of a Community Report to the Toronto Public Library detailing design features and services that will meet area needs.

Torontoist: A Spotter's Guide to Endangered Library Branches

Today, Torontoist has published A Spotter's Guide to Endangered Library Branches, highlighting some of the Toronto Public Library branches that are in danger of being cut by City Council. The first branch they feature is our very own Perth/Dupont Branch.

A few quotes from the article:

On page 152 of KPMG's core service review report—which identifies City services that could be cut or reduced for cost savings—is a column marked "Key Opportunities" that contains a single bullet point. "Some library branches could be closed," it says.

Specific proposals for cuts are still a long way off. Thursday night's (and Friday morning's) marathon executive committee meeting was only the prelude to a longer fight that will culminate next year, when it comes time to approve 2012's budget. But if library branches are to be closed, it seems likely that the most vulnerable ones will be those that do the least business.

Junction Triangle Library Services

The following notice comes from one of the meeting organizers:

The Perth/Dupont branch of the Toronto Public Library is popular spot in the Junction Triangle. Demand for its services has more than doubled since opening in 1977, and with the neighbourhood thriving, it will surely continue to grow. This bustling branch is one of the smallest in the Toronto Public Library system at 3600 square feet spread over three floors. With just a handful of reading spaces and computer workstations, the library struggles to accommodate groups in the tiny, second-floor meeting room. There is no elevator and washrooms are in the basement.

How can library services in the Junction Triangle be expanded in the current environment of fiscal restraint at City Hall? Is it possible to renovate or build a new library? Councillor Bailao supports the idea of matching contributions raised by the community with City money using Section 37 funds (i.e., fees paid by property developers for zoning allowances on building projects).

Our neighbourhood is undergoing a significant amount of development and the opportunity to obtain Section 37 funds for public projects like libraries now exists in the Junction Triangle. With the active support of the Councillor, a group of local residents is forming a committee to expand library services at the Perth/Dupont branch.

If you are interested in helping a great library grow, you are invited to the first meeting of the Junction Triangle Library Expansion Committee on Tuesday, August 16 at 7 p.m. in the Perth/Dupont Library (second floor meeting room) at 1589 Dupont Street.
