The Ontario Library Association has a program where books are donated to priority, rural, and indigenous communities through their I READ CANADIAN fund. This program puts books into the hands of children and young adults that otherwise would not have new books. OLA will accept copies of children and young adult books only after the EXPO has closed at the conference. Please follow these steps:
- email Meredith Tutching, Director of the Forest of Reading® by January 25 to indicate you will be doing this at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- A maximum of two boxes can be donated per booth.
- All boxes must be labelled “I READ CANADIAN book donation”.
- When the exhibit floor closes, boxes must be brought to the OLA Office in room 205A, and they will not be picked up on the exhibit floor.
