With the holiday season approaching, the library is giving its customers a gift in the form of the new Fast Reads collection. The Fast Reads collection will comprise of the new, hot titles that the library staff know our community wants to read.

“This Fast Reads collection is wonderful for our community as it allows our customers to be able to access and read the bestselling titles they want in a timely manner,” library CEO Margaret Wallace says.

The Fast Read collection, which debuts on December 8, will be consistently monitored by staff to ensure that the biggest new titles are available for checkout. These titles will be able to be checked out for seven days.

Another holiday initiative that the library is participating in is the Holiday Snack drive to benefit 360Kids. Residents are being encouraged to drop off snacks in their original, sealed packaging to the library until December 18 during open hours. Examples of snacks could include chips, crackers, granola bars, and candy. These snacks will be distributed to 360Kids, a York Region-based charity that provides programs and services for at-risk and homeless youth.
