Think of Woodstock Reads as a Community Book Club. Everyone in our community is urged to read a title selected by members of the community and events are planned throughout the year to celebrate the title.
Canada Reads is CBD's annual battle of the books, where five Canadian personalities each select a book they want Canadians to read. They defend their chosen title in a series of debates, and the books are eliminated one by one until a winner is declared. The debates air on CBC Radio One, CBC-TV and are livestreamed through CBC Books.
The Evergreen™ Award program is organized by the Ontario Library Association beginning 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. The program runs between April and October each year, with voting taking place in October. The winning title is announced in November.
