Registered programs receive access to dozens of resources, exclusive messaging, and voting privileges. Register today!

Become a part of the incredible Forest of Reading program for one low annual cost. Register the entire school, public library or family, and pay only one small fee.
  • Each school, library branch or location must register individually.
  • The fee provides access to everything needed to run a successful and engaging program.
  • Note: Forest of Reading and all of its 8 programs are trademarked or registered and cannot be run under the tree names (i.e., Silver Birch Book Club) without registration.

The annual registration fee covers ALL 8 programs. Groups have the option to run either 1 or all 8 for the same fee. This offers readers and communities more options and we encourage using more programs in 2017.

Please Note: Forest of Reading registration is an annual fee and separate from your Ontario Library Association membership. You must be registered in order to use the names and logos of the Forest and its programs.
