St Joseph’s Health Centre Book Drive
Employees of Exhibition Place recently held a book drive in support of St. Joseph’s Health Centre Toronto. This employee-driven initiative saw a total 183 lbs worth of books and magazines donated to the hospital’s patient library, fully re-stocking all the library’s shelves for patients of the hospital to enjoy! St. Joseph’s Health Centre is always looking for book and magazine donations for their patient library. The hospital accepts paperbacks (fiction and non-fiction), and current magazines. If you are interested in making a book or magazine donation, please contact the hospital’s Volunteer Services Department at volunteers@stjoestoronto.ca or 416-530-6450.

Road Safety at Exhibition Place
We care about road safety. Please be aware of acceptable driving speeds when visiting Exhibition Place. The speed limit within the ExPlaceTO grounds in 30km – please drive safely and stay alert, particularly with the arrival of darker winter months. You may have noticed the network of bike lanes we’ve installed, which integrate into the City of Toronto’s bike network and help guide the many cyclists that utilize the grounds safely through and around Exhibition Place. Please do not park in the bike lanes – the fine for blocking a bicycle lane in the city of Toronto is $150.
