I Can Show you the World

Have a magic carpet? No? My neither. But, that’s okay! BECAUSE, if he gets his way, designer Noah Ortmann wants you to be able to log a journey throughout Toronto via the Toronto Public Library’s passport program. Now that the Big Smoke is home to 100 public library branches (!), Ortmann has created this whimsical way of exploring the city’s plethora of branches, as well as encouraging patrons to investigate the 100 unique neighbourhoods that define them, all while collecting passport stamps in the terribly cute TPL Passport.

I love this idea, not just because it engages patrons with branches, neighbourhoods, and geography, but also because I think it’s a great way for parents and children to explore the wonders of a city and its library’s collection, all while playing a game!
