Markham Reads

Thank you to everyone who participated in Markham Reads 2019!

Missy Marston’s Bad Ideas was embraced by both staff and customers.  We ran 12 programs inspired by the book, and it sparked countless meaningful discussions. Choosing Bad Ideas as our Markham Reads title turned out to be an amazing idea. Thanks very much to ECW Press and Missy Marston for their incredible support during this program.

We are already looking to the future! In spring we will announce a shortlist of books in the running for Markham Reads 2020, followed shortly by a public vote for Markham's pick on MPL social media channels.

In the meantime, if you would like to suggest a book to be considered for the shortlist, please contact Ariana Ferrone, Community Librarian, at
