Forest of Reading 2022


What is the Forest of Reading?

The Forest of Reading® is Canada’s largest recreational reading program. This initiative by the Ontario Library Association (OLA) offers ten reading programs for all ages, in both English and French. Each program consists of popular fiction and non-fiction titles.

With 270,000 readers taking part every year, this popular program offers readers the opportunity to celebrate Canadian authors and to vote on their favourite books.

The program is broken down into ten categories, each of which is associated with a grade/age range. Participants are encouraged to read these titles and vote for their favourite books.

Voting will take place in April 2022, and the Ontario Library Association will announce the winners in May 2022. To participate, students should check with their teacher or school library. To search for or borrow a nominee from MPL, click below!
