TCAF to Set up Shop in the Toronto Reference Library
Toronto Public Library is happy to welcome the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) / Beguiling Books & Arts to the Toronto Reference Library, where they will open the TCAF Shop on the main floor. The gift shop will open in pop-up mode on the evening of December 3, and the owners will build a full range of merchandise that will be available in 2015.
TCAF has held its annual festival at the Toronto Reference Library for several years. The gift shop is an opportunity to extend this successful partnership, and the books and related merchandise in the shop will complement the library experience. There are plans to develop and sell unique Toronto Public Library merchandise in the gift shop.
This venture will create a new revenue source for the Toronto Public Library Board that will go toward funding library programs and services.
