The Story Pod is your new favourite place to read, learn, be inspired and engage with your community. Take a book to read at your leisure. Once you're finished enjoying it please bring it back or bring another book you'd love to share with your community. The Story Pod, in design and function, encourages you to open your heart and mind to life's possibilities similar to the way a book does. Thank you to our sponsors who helped make the Story Pod possible this year; the Newmarket Public Library, Scholastic Canada and Akb Architects
