Simcoe Reads Main Event

Thursday, October 19, 2023

This summer seven Simcoe County Libraries have the opportunity to square off against each other and champion their book in our fourth annual Simcoe Reads! Join the participating libraries: Barrie, Bradford West Gwillimbury, Essa, Innisfil, Midland, New Tecumseth, and Ramara for this cover to cover conversation. Each Library has chosen one book with which to take part in the challenge, along with a local celebrity to champion the title.
