Doors Open Toronto - Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library

Our third stop in Doors Open Toronto was the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. Let's start first with a picture of just a part of the library:

Now let's tell you a little bit more about those books than what you can already imagine by the name of the library. The books range from 1789 to contemporary and you can even find manuscripts written in 1050! First editions of hundreds of books, and every rare book you can imagine... WOW! It is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G, and do you know how many they have? More than 600.000 volumes!

The library is located at the University of Toronto and is open from monday to friday for those of you that want to see it ;) And you know what? If you really need one of those books, they let you see it up close :D
