Bathurst Clark Library
A very children friendly library. There is a whole section dedicated to children books. It has small bookcases, so that children can pick books themselves, low round tables and armchairs. Parents can read to children and in general slightly higher volume of noise is tolerated. In addition there are a couple of computers where you can play some educational games (each one has two headphones attached, so you can share the experience).
We come there often especially in winter months when the weather is too miserable to be outside, all the games have been played and the daily dose of cartoons has been watched. Our girls(3.5 years) love the fact that there is this ocean of books; they constantly pick new ones and we read them together. Then we play some game. A visit typically lasts for slightly more than an hour.
I think there are some books in Russian and Hebrew although majority of them is of course in English.http://www.vaughanpl.com/branches/bathurstclark.php
How this community was created
I am a parent. I am getting tired of this non-stop search for an ultimate daycare, a school or an appropriate child program for my kids. My requirements are high and most definitely not all kids programs meet my demands. Internet search engines do not solve my problem. They lack personal touch, friends' references and recommendations. It all changes once my friends express their opinion about a child service they liked. This community is run by these parents and for them.Community rules:
You are welcome to post about any child service you want in a country and city of your choice and give us you related recommendations. Please, always provide a TAG
for your post indicating:

- the city

of the child services mentioned in your post. For example: daycare, nursery, kids' entertainment and etc.
