Welcome to the PresbyKirk Reading Room

PresbyKirk invites you to come into our reading room. Select a comfortable chair for yourself and then pick up a newspaper or magazine and catch up on what is happening in the world. Again, like a good library, we have organized things to make your browsing easier. We are glad you stopped by. Relax and stay awhile. And, by the way, if you have a favourite Internet periodical that we are not currently receiving, please let us know and we will try to persuade the acquisitions department to add it to our collection. Oh yes, if you are going to put your feet up on the furniture please take off your shoes first.

Check out our Canadian newspapers and periodicals
First, for the local scene there is the Hamilton Spectator. For the national picture take your pick of The Globe and Mail or The National Post (most people seem to show a distinct preference for one or the other). There is, of course, also the Toronto Star and we can even find you a copy of the Toronto Sun.
