100 Branches – Run #12 Recap

September 28, 2016 – An evening tempo workout, foolishly heading west. It’s also getting dark earlier… fall is here!

 

Cliffcrest, established 1972, and moved to current location in 2008. According to the TPL website, “it is Toronto Public Library’s first ‘browsing branch’ with open-facing shelving (similar to retail stores) to display popular books, magazines, and audio-visual materials and reading lounges to browse items.

Albert Campbell – opened 1971, and named in honour of Scarborough politician Albert McTaggart Campbell. I love the architecture of this branch.

I think I’ve talked about this before, but the problem with trails on Google Maps is that you never know what you’re going to get into. I went south on the Gus Harris Trail through Warden Woods and was met with a TON of mud. I wasn’t totally sure what was going on, but there was obviously some construction or something happening. I had gotten to the point where it didn’t make sense to turn around, so I tiptoed through it, laughing. It eventually returned to paved ground. I though this rock was cool. Not as cool as the Leaside rock, but still cool.

Dawes Road (originally Woodbine Gardens) opened in its present location in 1976.

Isn’t Main Street beautiful? Also, I received an exceptionally friendly response to my question about a water fountain. Cheers to nice staff members!
