Mississauga Library wants to connect avid readers with one another and their favourite authors
Published November 1, 2021 at 11:02 am
Mississauga Library is offering several free programs this fall to encourage teens and adults alike to get busy with a book or two.
Available to those aged 13 and older, the programs also provide a way for book lovers to discover new genres and connect with other avid readers, library officials say.
The new Recommended Reading program makes it easier to decide what to read next, and offers suggestions about new authors and genres. Those interested can fill out an online form about their reading preferences and library staff will create a personal, curated list that includes 10 book recommendations.
The Online Book Clubs program offers book clubs for teens, adults, a cookbook club and a new 2SLGBTQ+ book club that launched this month. Registration is required for each session and participants can borrow print copies in Mississauga and access ebooks from libraries in Mississauga, Hamilton, Burlington, London and Ottawa.
The Author Talks program invites readers to hear from their favourite authors through a series of online talks.
“This series is a great opportunity to learn something new, ask questions and hear from a variety of authors including local and Canadian authors and those that come from diverse backgrounds, cultures and experiences,” library officials say.
