Welcome Week Diverse Reads

In celebration of Welcome Week (September 10 to 19) check out a diverse read! CKPL wants all community members to see their world reflected in the books they read. CKPL recognizes that diversity takes on many forms, including differences in race, religion, gender, geography, sexual orientation, class, and ability.

Provincial Park Passes

Borrow a 2021 Ontario Parks Annual Vehicle Permit from any of CKPL's 11 branches. Passes are loaned for seven (7) days and provide day-use access to all Ontario Provincial Parks. 

Passes can be requested through Ask CKPL. A limited number of passes are also available through our Express Collection. Express Collection items are loaned on a "first come first served" basis. Ask if one is available at your branch!

Passes were provided by Ontario Parks as part of their library day-use vehicle lending program to help Ontarians spend more time in nature. A wide body of research supports the idea that time spent in nature has significant benefits for our mental and physical health.
