The Forest of Reading 2020


Voting for the Forest of Reading has been postponed until June 1st. If you have borrowed Forest of Reading books from the Library please keep them until the Library reopens. There will be no fines during the closure. If you would like to keep reading some of the books are available on Overdrive

What is the Forest of Reading?

The Forest of Reading® is Canada’s largest recreational reading program, and the only Canadian reader-chosen book awards. Young readers have the unique opportunity to vote on the best nominated book for their age group.

How Do We Sign Up?

It's easy! You simply fill out the registration forms and start reading. Participants are free to read which ever books they choose from as many categories as you would like. You can read them independently, or you can all read them together as a family.


If you read at least five books in a category you will get to vote for your favourite book at our final party.


For each book read, you will get to add your name to the Forest of Reading Tree and enter your name in our grand prize draw.
