The mission of IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People) is to promote international understanding through children’s books, and to give children everywhere the opportunity to have access to books with high literary and artistic standards. The collection housed by the TPL includes colourful cloth books, braille items, and interactive materials – some of which match titles currently offered at the Japan Foundation Toronto Library. It also includes quality books written for, by, and about children and teens with physical, developmental, intellectual and language disabilities.
