Toronto Public Library now offering ‘buy’ option

News Mar 06, 2013 City Centre Mirror

The Toronto Public Library has come up with a unique fundraising twist that offers visitors to its website the opportunity to buy the book they’re looking for.

When browsing for books, library customers will be able to select a ‘buy now’ option that will link them to Indigo’s website when there is a copy available to buy.

Additional retailers will be added shortly.

The library will receive a portion of the sale price, and will use these funds to support its collections and services.

“We’re happy to offer this innovative program,” said Paul Ainslie, chair of the Toronto Public Library Board.

“We know that many library customers do a mix of borrowing books from the library and buying their own copies. It’s great to give those customers the opportunity to purchase books and at the same time support their library.”

As always, Toronto Public Library encourages Torontonians to borrow materials from its collection of more than 11 million items including books, ebooks, CDs and DVDs in 40 languages.
