Update: As of January 2023, the Free to Read program is no longer active.
Free to Read is the Guelph Tool Library’s newest project. We are working with the Books for Inmates Program which collects books to take to correctional institutes in Southern Ontario. The program has delivered almost 30,000 books to literacy programs and libraries at these institutions.
On April 23, 2022, Free to Read was centred around World Literacy/Book Day. The goal was to collect 1000 comic books and/or graphic novels. These are in-demand reading materials because of the engaging content and connection of pictures to words.
