Become a Friend

We'd love to have you as a Friend. Join us or renew your membership here.

Membership levels

There are four annual Friends donation levels:

Hudson: $35 - $49
Watson: $50 - $99
Mycroft: $100 - $249
Sherlock: $250+

All levels include a subscription to our newsletter, The Magic Door, and a copy of our annual Cameron Hollyer Memorial Lecture publication.

Donations over $35 will be used to help the Collection to acquire additional items beyond its normal budget.

There are two ways you can donate to the Friends and become a member:

Donate securely online with PayPal or using your credit or debit card

Donations will be received in the Friends' account at the Toronto Public Library Foundation. Canadian-based donors giving $10 or more will receive a charitable donation tax receipt for Canadian Income Tax purposes. US-based donations will be received through the American Foundation for the Toronto Public Library and donors will be entitled to a charitable contribution deduction within IRS guidelines.  A written acknowledgment will be provided for all donations of $35 or more. 

It's easy: Click one of the buttons below to donate in the currency of your choice by credit card or debit card or using your PayPal account.

If you wish your donation to be in memory of, or in honour of someone, please indicate this in the "Write a note (optional)" field on the PayPal page.
