Georgian Bay Reads Returns

Georgian Bay Reads is an annual competition among five local library networks (Clearview Public Library, Collingwood Public Library, Meaford Public Library, Springwater Township Public Library, and Wasaga Beach Public Library).

The competition pits five defenders against each other: each individual has selected a book to represent and is attempting to prove theirs is the best. This year Meaford is hosting the event in the Friends of the Meaford Library Room on October 23, at 7 p.m. The event will be hosted on Facebook Live due to COVID-19.

This year we will not only be awarding the coveted Georgian Bay Reads trophy (that Meaford has held onto for the past few years), but we will also be awarding a People’s Choice Award and a Reader’s Choice Award,” said the Meaford Public Library. “The Reader’s Choice will be selected by the defenders among themselves, but the People’s Choice will be selected by the general public.”

By visiting the web page the general public can vote on their favourite book, and the library which selected the winning book takes home the new trophy.

More information can be found on the website:
