    The Evergreen Award™ was introduced in 2005 for adults of any age. It gives adult library patrons the opportunity to vote for a work of Canadian fiction or non-fiction that they have liked the most from a list of great reads chosen by library staff across Ontario.

    The Evergreen Award™ is designed for adults of any age and the lists are comprised of Canadian fiction and non-Fiction titles. Adult library patrons have the opportunity to explore these books by themselves, through their public library or just in a book club format. A group of experienced library staff have come together to share their favourite reading with adult readers.

    Evergreen Talks

    The Forest of Reading Program is pleased to announce an exciting new initiative to showcase the 2017 Evergreen nominees across the country: Evergreen Talks!

    They're bringing virtual author visits to the Evergreen Award Program for free to current OLA members and 2017 Forest registrants!

    Evergreen Talks will run from September 12 to October 5.
