Purrfect Pals: Borrow a Cat at the Library

UPDATE: Happy April Fools' Day! Sorry you won’t be able to get a cat at the library, but please do consider adopting a pet through the City of Toronto's Animal Services. 


Launching today, Toronto Public Library is expanding our Purrfect Pals program to sixteen new branches. These new branches will offer a variety of cats for reading companionship.

Simply head to a participating branch, select a cat from our shelf, show your library card to one of our friendly staff, and you’ll be given a new friend for three weeks.

Cats (2)

*Litterboxes, food and cat comforts not included. 

Cats are known to be loyal reading friends. 99% of owners report immense satisfaction and increased mood after a mere two weeks of exposure, so we are more than happy to pass on the good vibes to our customers!
