Pencil on Paper would like to thank Stray Books for their support in this giveaway and acknowledge each local business for their ongoing presence in our city. We’re excited to be part of the Alberta literary community and support local businesses we love!

Good luck!

WordPress Cover – Exciting News


Our collection of books can be rented through the libraries in Airdrie, Banff, Cochrane, Chestermere, Crossfield (and soon to be Canmore).

Even though they’re closed for in-person services right now, libraries are a staple in our community, providing essential resources, promoting education and learning, and being a safe space for all. Remember to keep these wonderful institutions alive!

We look forward to seeing our books in your hands!
