Georgian Bay Reads (GBR) brings together five local libraries to celebrate Canadian authors and communication between libraries in an event filled with lively discussion, good-natured competition, and an enthusiastic audience.

Each library chooses a defender and a book, in hopes of convincing fellow defenders and audience members of their books’ merit in a live debate. The winning defender brings home a trophy for his or her library.

The following libraries participate yearly in the event:

  • Clearview Public Library
  • Collingwood Public Library
  • Meaford Public Library
  • Springwater Public Library
  • Wasaga Beach Public Library
