The City of Toronto and Toronto Public Library have named the 10 books longlisted for the 2021 Toronto Book Awards. A shorter list of finalists will be announced later this summer and a winner named this fall. The titles selected for the 2021 long list can be found here.
As the Toronto Pubic Library's capacity increased and more in-person services are available, you can plan a trip to your local branch to read these books before a winner is chosen. You can also place a hold on these books online and pick up in your local branch or access the e-book. Under stage 2 of the province's reopening plan, libraries are open for browsing. More information on services and COVID-19 requirements can be found here.
