Looking for what to read next?

So many ways to find reading recommendations!

AND there are so many collections to explore at the library:

If there’s an item your looking for that the library doesn’t have, librarians can request it from another library through InterLibrary Loan, or may be able to order it. Inquire at the circulation desk, call 613-256-1037 (Almonte) or 613-624-5306 (Pakenham) or email.
