About our library

Committed to preserving Ukrainian cultural heritage and making its resources available, the Library materials and facilities are open to the public in the Greater Toronto area.

The St. Vladimir Institute Library is both a specialized academic library of Ukrainian materials and an extensive collection of interest to the general public. It serves the needs of Canadian academic, community, school and library institutions and individual researchers, journalists and writers.

Its major strength is its collection of Ukrainian history, language, literature, music, children's books and genealogical materials. Also, emphasis is placed on collecting Ukrainian-related material in English.

A special feature of the St. Vladimir Institute Library's collection is its rare Ukrainian books, newspapers dating back as far as the early 20th century, making it a valuable resource for scholarly research.
