I Read Canadian Day - February 17th!

17/02/2021

February 17th is a national day of celebration of Canadian books for young people. It's a day dedicated to ‘reading Canadian’ and what better source could you have than the Ottawa Public Library's collection!

Here are some great suggestions in French and English.

Read Canadian and see yourself reflected in books written and published in Canada.  Read Canadian and grow, learn and celebrate the richness, diversity and breadth of Canadian literature.
