The Champlain Library is encouraging patrons to celebrate the richness, diversity and breadth of Canadian literature during the month of July. The purpose of the promotion is to raise awareness of Canadian books and to celebrate the excellence of Canadian literature. The library wants patrons to borrow, read and talk about Canadian books – whether they are in English or French, for children, teens or adults.

Each time a patron borrows a Canadian book during the month of July, their name will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a “I Read Canadian” T-shirt, cap and pair of sunglasses. The draw will be held on Friday, July 31st. Need some suggestions on what to read? Visit the library’s website and check out the “Book Buzz” section to find out some recommended titles and staff picks.

Don’t delay – borrow a Canadian book today! For more information about this promotion or how to access the library’s catalogue for curbside pickup service, visit or call 613-678-2216.
