News release

Jump into Reading this Fall with Mississauga Library Programs

Entertainment and activities | October 29, 2021

Fall is the time for apple picking and jumping in the leaves – it’s also a great time to pick your new favourite books and jump into reading! The Mississauga Library makes it easy to discover new books and genres while connecting with others.

The library has several free programs running throughout the fall for those 13 years old and up that will help:

  • encourage you to read
  • introduce you to new books and fellow book-lovers
  • provide you with opportunities to learn something new

Recommended Reading
Have you ever finished a book that you loved and thought, “Now what?” The library’s new Recommended Reading program makes it easier to find your next favourite read or discover new authors or genres. Help the library get to know you by filling out the online form about your reading preferences. Library staff will create a curated list just for you that includes 10 book recommendations. Visit mississaugalibrary.ca/reads for more information and to access the form.

 Online Book Clubs
The library has a number of online book clubs that continue throughout the fall. Choose from book clubs for adults, teens (ages 13 to 19), a cookbook club for fellow foodies and the new 2SLGBTQ+ book club that launched this month.

Registration is required for each session. For book clubs with a reading list, participants can check the library’s catalogue to borrow print copies or visit Overdrive to access eBooks from the Mississauga, Hamilton, Burlington, London and Ottawa libraries.

Author Talks
Learn even more about your favourite books from the authors themselves! The library’s online Author Talk Series continues this fall. This series is a great opportunity to learn something new, ask questions and hear from a variety of authors including local and Canadian authors and those that come from diverse backgrounds, cultures and experiences. See the Author Talks fall lineup and register at mississaugalibrary.ca/authors.
