Global Free Library
About the Library
We offer an online collection of stories and materials that celebrate the world’s diversity. To do this, we commission authors and illustrators from around the globe to create original stories, told in their authentic voices, that will inspire the children and adults who read them.
In Canada, we are co-creating a series of original storybooks written and illustrated by Indigenous artists that explore themes identified by the communities we serve. To advance reconciliation and language revitalization, we incorporate audio recordings of Elders and Knowledge Keepers pronouncing words in the first languages of the communities. Find these stories in the Indigenous Stories collection in the library.
