One eRead Canada

NWPL is please to announce our participation in the 2022 One eRead Canada – a program that unites libraries and readers from coast to coast as the nation reads the same book and engages in a national conversation.

2022’s book is The Break (Ligne brisée) by Katherena Vermette.

From April 1 – 30, 2022 unlimited digital copies are available to borrow for  free with your New Westminster Public Library card.
