September 15, 2016 – There’s a bit of a gap between library runs #7 and #8 because I went to California for a wedding, then did a practice race to gauge where I was at for the marathon. I used run #8 to literally run an errand, picking up a package (an InstantPot) at a shipping facility. I was glad to be able to add in some libraries!
S. Walter Stewart, opened in 1960. From the TPL website: “The library’s circular design was unique in Toronto, and, at the time, said to be one of only four circular libraries in the world. Named for S. Walter Stewart (1897-1969), a pioneer of library service in East York, serving on the East York Public Library Board from its establishment in 1946 until his death. He was the president of the East York Kiwanis Club when it started children’s libraries in 1944.”
Danforth/Coxwell, established 1989.
Gerrard/Ashdale, opened 1924.
