Read the World

Can't travel in real life?
Travel with books!

We challenge you to read a book written by an author from each continent in 2021, and explore the globe from the comfort of home. Track your reading with our special passport, and watch this site (and our Instagram!) for special bonus challenges.

Anyone in grades 7-12 with an LPL or Chinook Arch membership can take part.

Download your passport here, and start reading!

(tip: if you're printing it out, choose the "booklet" setting)

Teen Book Club

Calling all book lovers!
Join our new book club to connect with other teen readers!

Each month, we'll read a different book, and share our thoughts about it.  Plus: the first 10 teens to register will get a special loot box that includes a copy of the book to keep!

We'll meet online via our LPLTeenZone Discord server - you'll be sent the link after you register.

  • April 20's book: Escape from Syria by Samya Kullab
  • Story and discussion are likely to include: war, refugees, violence, racism, survival.

All six copies have been spoken for!  However, you can still take part by placing a hold on one of the library copies, and joining us on Discord.

Want to see what we've read for other months? There's a booklist for that!

Queer Book Hurrah!

Love books with queer characters?
Want to learn about more great stories by YA authors?

Join us for an afternoon of cheering about LGBTQA+ teen books, and sharing our favourites. We'll have special virtual visits from Canadian authors, and book prizes for every local teen (grades 7-12) who attends. That's right - free queer YA books for your bookshelves!

Presented in partnership with Lethbridge Pride Fest.
