Petawawa Launches First Book Tree in Renfrew County

On Wednesday May 29th at 11:00 a.m. Petawawa launched the first Book Tree in Renfrew County at the Petawawa Civic Centre Playground, directly across from the Petawawa Public Library.

The Book Tree is a free exchange place where you can take a book, share a book or leave a book. You are welcome to take a book home and bring it back, keep it or share it with friends and family. If you have a book at home that you no longer need you can also leave a book. You do not need to leave a book to take a book.

There will be four Book Trees going up in different communities across Renfrew County- Petawawa, Arnprior, Killaloe and Pembroke.

The Book Trees in Renfrew County were inspired by The Book Tree in Berlin. The Book Trees in our communities were made possible by a group of dedicated individuals and agencies who shared a vision that we need to make books more accessible to everyone in Renfrew Community.
