Last Thursday, just before midnight, somebody borrowed Toronto Public Library's six millionth ebook of 2019. 

This is a new record for us; in 2018, Torontonians borrowed more ebooks than anyone else in the world, at just over five million. We've beat our own personal best!

The six millionth ebook borrowed was Realms: The Roleplaying Game Art of Tony DiTerlizzi. DiTerlizzi is a fantasy artist who is known for illustrating the Spiderwick Chronicles series of children's books, as well as his work on fantasy games like Dungeons and Dragons and Magic: The Gathering.


Delightfully, the book includes images like this:


There's something for everyone in our ebook collection.

It's mesmerizing!

Keep reading, Toronto!
