Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library

This library at the University of Toronto – with four floors of rare books – is something of a hidden treasure. They hold some of the rarest print materials in the world – including manuscripts dating back to the 11th century. Visitors during Doors Open can view this spectacular public space and chat with staff while viewing selected highlights from the collections.
