The Ontario Library Association’s Evergreen Award, part of the Forest of Reading, is best described as the “readers’ choice” of Canadian literary awards. Each year, a list of ten nominees is selected by a committee of librarians and in September library patrons from all across the province can vote on their favourite. The winner will be announced during Ontario Public Library Week in October (20-26). Stop-in at BUPL to fill out your voting card, or pick up a copy of the book(s) you haven't read!
