Simcoe County Libraries Multicultural Book Club

If you have traveled the roads, entered a restaurant, or visited a school in Simcoe County, you have seen the County’s diversity first-hand. With more than 50,000 foreign-born residents within our borders and 107 different languages being spoken, diversity is, indeed, a way of life for those of us who live, work and play in Simcoe County!

Books are a great way to learn about, and gain appreciation for, other cultures. In an effort to celebrate Simcoe County’s diversity while providing a resource for building cultural competency, the libraries have teamed up to provide book club kits with titles designed to educate and enlighten readers from all backgrounds. The themes of inclusivity and tolerance are central to all the titles. They feature multicultural characters who face inter-cultural challenges. Titles include popular novels such as Kite Runner, as well as foreign-language international titles that have been translated into English. The kits are designed to spark conversations about inclusion and acceptance within books clubs and groups of friends across Simcoe County. The kits are available for loan to members of any Simcoe County library, through an online booking system on the Simcoe County Libraries Multicultural Book Club website. Bookings can be made up to one year in advance. Check the calendar on the website for availability.

Each kit consists of ten (10) copies of the book, discussion questions, and a canvas book bag. The kits circulate for four weeks and can be picked up at the nearest branch of your local library. Libraries intend to expand on these kits with time. We hope to include titles and authors from as many cultures as we can. Be sure and check back often for new titles and authors!
