The Golden Oak Adult Literacy Book Club Award is sponsored by the Ontario Library Association. Golden Oak provides a unique opportunity for new readers in adult literacy programs to read books chosen specifically for them. They can read the books by themselves, with their tutors, or as part of a reading group. New adult readers are encouraged to read one, two, or all of the books and share their thoughts about them in an online discussion. The official sponsor of the Golden Oak Award reading program is Tinlids Inc.
