Forest Kid and Teen Committees 2021

It's that time again for Canadian young readers to apply for the Forest Kid and Teen Committees to develop summer reading lists for their peers. 
The Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading has put out the call for readers to apply for one of the three committees:
  • Silver Birch (Gr. 3-6)
  • Red Maple (Gr. 7-8) 
  • White Pine (Gr. 9-12) 
Each committee, which will comprise of 8-10 selected individuals, will meet via Zoom in May to develop a summer reading list of recommended Canadian books for their peers to enjoy. Scheduled dates for meetings are as follows:
  • Silver Birch: Tuesday, May 4, 2021
  • Red Maple: Wednesday, May 5, 2021
  • White Pine: Thursday, May 6, 2021
If you or a young person you know is enthusiastic, well read, and familiar with Canadian authors and their books, especially those published in the last few years, then the Forest Kid and Teen Committees offer a great opportunity to meet (virtually) with like-minded young readers and help recommend great titles of youngCanLit to others of their age group. 
The application, which takes between 10-15 minutes to complete online, is due April 1, 2021 and can be accessed at
Complete details, as well as links to past summer reading lists, are posted at
