The Brantford Public Library challenges you to read diverse books this fall!

Explore reading challenges to discover new characters, stories and authors.  Join the reading challenge at brantfordlibrary.readsquared.com or using our ReadSquared app. Track each challenge you complete and earn points towards a prize draw for completing challenges.

Need help finding books to read? We've created book bundles that are available at both our Main and St. Paul Branches.

We'll also post monthly videos from Canadian authors on our Brantford Reads Diverse webpage. In these videos, authors will read from their books, discuss their writing process, and recommend reads.

Kids, families and teens are welcome to join the challenge. The Reading Challenge runs from September 13 to November 30.

Lifescapes

02:30 PM | Online

What are your stories?

Lifescapes is a memoir writing program for people with life experience, designed to help you think and write about the legacy you want to leave. We meet regularly throughout the fall, winter, and spring for writing guidance and support, then publish an annual anthology of short memoirs in the summer.

This fall we’ll meet virtually, using Zoom for presentations and group discussion, then transition back to meeting at the Main Library as it becomes safer (and in accordance with all relevant guidelines).

Contact Robin at rharding@brantfordlibrary.ca to register or for more information.

Check out the Lifescapes webpage for resources, past anthologies, and to stay current on program events.
