Forest of Reading

The Forest of Reading is a province wide program to encourage families to enjoy great Canadian books. Read any five of the titles in each age and/or official language category and then vote for your family’s favourite title.

Starting February 4th, there will be posters with the list of books at each Library Branch as well as ballots and a ballot box. Choose your favourite title, enter your name and contact information on the ballot, and be entered for a chance to win a family reading basket.

The Forest of Reading voting will run through Friday March 15th. The draw will be held on Saturday March 16th.
