Library Love is...

Library Love Week is finally here! Each day this week, we've got activities packed with so much library love that you might get a cavity from how sweet it is!

Library Love Week with Penguin pointing at the list of activities

Virtual Blind Date with a Book

It's the Library's yearly tradition to wrap up our books and provide clues that hint at what mystery date is inside. This year we have a personality quiz to match you with your next favourite read. To meet your Blind Date With A Book, go through our love quiz to pick a genre, pick a clue and fall in love. Your blind date will be available online and accessible through Waterloo Reads. 

Library Love newsletter

Penguin and his Library friends have put together packages of lovely goodies to brighten your inbox every day of the week from February 8 to 12. In each newsletter, there will also be a new opportunity to participate in Library activities for a chance to win one of five prizes! All you have to do is subscribe to participate!
