The collection in began in 1961 from a few shelves of books donated by the Garden Club of Toronto, and now includes more than 10,000 items from periodicals, reference, children’s materials, DVDs, to historical collections. As a resource centre within a non-profit organization, there are many unique aspects that set the Weston Family Library apart from other special libraries, such as its staffing, budget, source of acquisitions, and more.
