Pay a Visit to Sherlock Holmes
Have you visited the new Arthur Conan Doyle Room yet? This latest version of the Toronto Public Library's tribute to Sherlock Holmes and his creator opened to the public just two years ago. It's located in the Charles & Marilyn Baillie Special Collections Centre on the 5th floor of the Toronto Reference Library and is open during all regular library hours.
Why visit? Well, people visit for many different reasons.
Some are diehard fans that spend hours in the room reading and browsing the wide selection of materials. These include Sherlock Holmes stories by Conan Doyle and other authors, Conan Doyle's many other works, and even books for young readers.
Some are writers and students that use the Conan Doyle Collection's primary resources and non-fiction works for school projects, research papers and books.
Some are casual visitors who just want to see the curious collection of books and objects.
Some come for a quiet game of chess in the room's Victorian atmosphere.
Many come back with friends visiting from out of town to show them this free and friendly Toronto attraction.
We'd love to welcome you to Holmes' home in Toronto. In the words of the Great Detective, "Come at once if convenient. If inconvenient, come all the same."
