Many cities have public library services and web designer Noah Ortmann is doing his part in promoting the free literature available to consumers at the Toronto Library with a Toronto Library Passport scavenger hunt. The experience encourages Toronto citizens to explore the vast amount of libraries in the city with a gamified hunt that encourages learning more about the spaces and the services.

The Toronto Library Passport is a physical book modelled after travel documents. The book contains a series of challenges to the reader based off of the 100 public library branches located in the city. The pages are filled with lists of books and things the readers need to find on their hunt as well as facts about the libraries. This is a fun and interactive way to get local citizens to explore the city's free literature and learn more about their community.
