The Forest of Reading® is Canada's largest recreational reading program! This initiative of the Ontario Library Association (OLA) offers ten reading programs to encourage a love of reading in people of all ages. 

More than 270,000 readers participate annually. All Canadians are invited to participate via their local public library, school library, or individually.

Become a part of the Forest for one low annual cost. Register the entire school, public library branch or family, and pay only one small fee.

  • Each school, library branch, or location must register individually.
  • The fee provides exclusive access to everything needed to run a successful and engaging program, including free virtual author visits, program resources, book resources, and much more! 

The annual registration fee covers ALL ten programs. Groups have the option to run either one or all ten for the same fee. This offers readers and communities more options and we encourage using more programs in 2021.
