“Toronto Public Library is delighted to host the Toronto Mini Maker Faire. The library has a strong tradition of supporting our city’s vibrant community of innovators, entrepreneurs, and artists. We look forward to showcasing makers and their creations in a unique and inventive event at the Toronto Reference Library this weekend,” says Linda Mackenzie, Director of Research and Reference Libraries.
