Writer's Room @ the library .. a Place for Wordsmiths

excerpts from the article: Toronto Reference Library adds dedicated room for writers (Jan 22, 2015)
The new Writers' Room at the Toronto Reference Library will feature four workstations that writers can book for three-month blocks of time.

'This will give writers wandering from coffee shop to coffee shop a place where they can be'- Robert Rotenberg, novelist and lawyer, on the Reference Library's new Writers' Room

Writers can apply to use the space for up to 3 months.  Outfitted with power plugs, free internet, access to the library for research and a place to keep all the books and materials they require, it is also quiet and free from life's distractions.

"Any writer, published or not, can apply to use the Reference Library's Writers' Room for a three-month period with an option to renew, depending on availability. Booking the room requires a library card and the room is only available during the Reference Library's opening hours."
