What’s Happening in August


Local Celebrities to Read Leacock Classic

We are introducing a brand new event at this year’s Inside Whitchurch-Stouffville on August 24, a Marathon Read from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Hear local celebrity readers and members of the community take turns reading passages aloud from Stephen Leacock’s ‘Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town’. The Marathon Read is a part of the Library’s Canada 150 events, celebrating a classic Canadian author and Canadian life in literature. We will be giving away a few prizes to members of the audience during the live readings.
