Welcome to the Renfrew's Book Tree!
[Informational and not transcribed]

Renfrew's Book Tree means there are now 7 community Book Trees in Renfrew County - Arnprior, Killaloe, Petawawa, Pembroke, Cobden, Bonnechere Park on Round Lake and now Renfrew!

The Book Trees in Renfrew County were inspired by The Giving Tree in Berlin [Germany] and have been made possible because of a dedicated group who shared a vision of making books accessible throughout Renfrew County.
