Deutsch anyone? If you read or speak German, then this is the place for you!  There are four branches with German collections for you to find your next great read! Visit Toronto Reference Library, North York Central Library, Don Mills and Runnymede for a selection of adult and children's materials. Take a moment to explore some of the magazines, music CDs and feature DVDs listed on our website.

If you can’t visit one of these four locations, you can also order your books, DVDs or CDs from the four branches and have it delivered to your home branch by placing a hold from our website. You can do this by using the global search function to search  for your favourite title on our homepage or browse through the collection by using the Advanced Search (remember to check off "German" in the language category!). In the meantime, check out this list of titles suitable for both children and adults! I've also highlighted a few books below that may be of interest!
