If you are 12 to 18 years old, you can Read Away Your Fines on your Library card during National Youth Week.

For every 15 minutes of reading you do in the Library, you get $1 off your fines.

If you sat down and read books, magazines or graphic novels for an hour that would earn you $4 off your fines!

The offer is good for fines only, not for charges for lost or damaged items.

Good only for fines on teen cards.

April is National Poetry Month

poster for national poetry Month

Libraries and poems share something in common.

Both offer worlds of discovery that challenge us to view our lives from a different perspective.

During April, those worlds will intersect, as libraries throughout the country celebrate National Poetry Month.

Established by the League of Canadian Poets in April 1998, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools, and poets around the country get together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in Canadian culture.

The quality and variety of poetry in Canada is astonishing. Check out our teen poetry collection or discover our poetry-related fiction.

In honour of National Poetry Month, we created a program just for you! Poetically Speaking will be hosted by Emma Blue of the Poetry Slam on Wednesday, April 29 from 7 - 8 pm at the Central Library.

Celebrate National Poetry Month with us;

you can walk, drive or take the bus.

Step into the spotlight and read a poem;

by someone else or one of your own.

Don't be shy! Give it a try!

Judges and critics - there will be none;

this whole hour is just for fun!
