Ontario Public Library Week 2018

Ontario Public Library Week 2018
Baysville Branch Library - Tuesday, October 16, 2018
We're very excited to be celebrating Ontario Public Library Week! There are lots of things going on this week at both of our library branches so that we can thank you for being a library card holder. 

Ontario Public Library Week (Oct. 14 – 20, 2018) is a unique opportunity to show your support for your library. Whether they have provided you with inspiration for success, or support in your leisure activities, your public library is there for you!

Every year, 4.2 million Ontarians of all ages access 251,000 programs through their local public library. We encourage all Ontarians to get a library card!

Together We Read Ontario
From October 15 to 29 you'll have unlimited access to this year's Together We Read Ontario book through the Southern Ontario Library Services (SOLS) shared OverDrive collection. What's the title? You'll have unlimited access to "The Lightkeeper's Daughters" by Joan E. Pendziwol.
