7 Libraries. 7 Books. 1 Winner.

_

Seven Simcoe County libraries are squaring off against each other in a cover-to-cover competition this summer: Barrie, Bradford West Gwillimbury, Essa, Innisfil, Midland, New Tecumseth and Ramara. Based on Canada Reads, each library has selected a Canadian book and a local champion. Read all seven books this summer, pick your favourite and then enjoy a live debate in September 2021 to see which book is crowned the winner.  Visit bit.ly/bwgpl_simcoereads to learn more about the Champions and their selected titles.

 

It's easy to join Simcoe Reads:

  • Visit the App Store or Google Play and download the FREE Beanstack Tracker app to get started earning virtual prizes;
  • Join our Champion, Emily Dahlgren, in the challenge and read all seven Canadian titles (or as many as you want);
  • Play along at home on the Beanstack Tracker app and complete badges; and
  • Tune in this fall to see who wins when our champions defend their book in a live debate
