Cambridge Idea Exchange begins reciprocal borrowing program with Brantford libraries

Author events, reading club and young reader contest scheduled for Ontario Library Week

Cambridge residents can now borrow books from the Brantford Public Library.

To kick off Ontario Library Week, the Idea Exchange announced that Brantford Public Library has been added to the city's reciprocal borrowing program.

This means Idea Exchange members now have borrowing privileges at Brantford Public Library and their residents can access materials at Idea Exchange.

This week recognizes the important contributions public libraries make to education, literacy, and life-long learning in Ontario communities.

“This is a great time to explore the collections and services available to Idea Exchange members,” says Jamie Kamula, director of public service, in a press release.

“We are always looking for new stories, fun programs, and incredible technology to share with our community, whether they are new to Idea Exchange, or it’s been a little while since they visited us.”

Idea Exchange welcomes new members to its Fall Edit Adult Reading Club and invites kids to enter its Get Something Weird contest.

Members can track their progress digitally, winning prizes as they complete challenges. Registration is now open at

The celebration of books continues with virtual author events: Author Talk: Iona Whishaw (Wednesday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m.), and Young Love: YA Author Event with authors S.K. Ali, Jason June, and Lynn Painter (Oct. 21 at 7 p.m.).

Earlier this year, Idea Exchange announced the permanent removal of all overdue fines on late materials and elimination of all existing overdue fines.

Membership cards are free to anyone living in the City of Cambridge or residents from one of our reciprocal borrowing partners.
