New York City doesn't even have 98. I've heard people say on the radio that they live within walkin distance from multiple libraries. The Toronto system is apparently the largest in the world.
Maybe they do have the largest in the world, but per capita they have the same number of libraries as other cities in Canada.
I wouldn't compare the library system in Toronto the the one in NY either. The United States isn't exactly the model of education we want to emulating, as they consistently rank below Canada in the PISA scores.

"History I believe furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free and civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their political as well as their religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purpose."
