Each floor is named for a number of the Dewey Decimal system, and the rooms are decorated, and furnished with books, from the category.  With the Guilty Pleasures package, you can even have their in-house librarian supply you with books by the foot in the subject of your choice!

Project Bookmark

From the Project Bookmark site:

On October 28 at 1 p.m., author Anne Michaels will unveil a Bookmark with an excerpt of her novel Fugitive Pieces (McClelland & Stewart, 1996) at the Northwest corner of College and Manning streets. This Bookmark is the third for Toronto, which became home to the inaugural Bookmark in the national series in April 2009, when a plaque bearing 500 words from Michael Ondaatje’s In the Skin of a Lion was unveiled at the Bloor Street Viaduct.

“Project Bookmark Canada is designed so that people can read their way right across the country,” says Miranda Hill, Founder and Executive Director of Project Bookmark Canada, “but it’s also great to cluster Bookmarks in one place, as we are now doing in Toronto. It gives us a sense of what the project will become, when you can encounter one story in the streets and walk a few blocks and find another.”
