The Toronto Public Library is now offering visitors a book printing service called Asquith Press, which enables people to both design and print paperback books.

The Asquith Press is located on the main floor of the Toronto Reference Library in the recently opened Digital Innovation Hub, which provides workshops and a range of information sources.

“For the first time ever, we’re able to print books right here at the library. We’re excited to offer this service to everyone – authors, aspiring authors and hobbyists – and to see their books come off the press,” said Jane Pyper, City Librarian at Toronto Public Library. “Asquith Press is the latest in a series of innovations that we’re introducing to give Toronto residents access to new technologies.”

There are also options to print books from the library’s digital archive, as well as a database of more than three million book titles. The Toronto Public Library is one of the world's busiest urban public library systems. Every year, 19 million people visit Toronto Public Library branches and borrow 32 million items.
