Virtual Book Talks
Watch online on Tuesdays via social media & YouTube
We know finding your next read can be more difficult when browsing the library shelves isn’t an option, so each week we’ll release short book talks on our social media and YouTube pages to introduce you to some of our new arrivals and great library reads.
All booktalks are available on demand on our YouTube channel
These book talks are funded by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund, via the United Way of Simcoe Muskoka.
