Pleasant Ridge Library

Beautifully designed to meet the needs of the Thornhill Woods Community, the Pleasant Ridge Library was built as an addition to the existing North Thornhill Community Centre. The library is situated closely to North Thornhill Children’s Centre and Stephen Lewis Secondary School, making it the perfect location for students, children and families. Enjoy a book or borrow a laptop while relaxing in our Reading Lounge or Reading Garden. Or join us for an exciting storytime and listen to a fun story by one of our public service team members. Pleasant Ridge Library has an abundance of Chinese, Hebrew, Russian, and French collection materials.
