The dyslexic library is curated by a mother-daughter duo living in Ottawa, Canada.

We share news, information, tips, book reviews, personal stories and more.

We hope to dispel the myth that dyslexics can’t read or write. We can, and we do!

Five things about me–mom


  1. I’m a dyslexic adult successfully navigating a text-based world.
  2. I’m a parent somewhat successfully navigating the education system with my very bright dyslexic child.
  3. I’m an experienced writer, editor, communicator.
  4. I was told I’d never go to university: I didn’t listen. I have a BA in english literature from Carleton University (Ottawa), and a MSC in social science from the University of Edinburgh.
  5. I write about my love of books, bookstores and libraries in a blog called Lost and Found Books.

Five things about me–tween


  1. I’m 11 years old & I’m in grade 5
  2. I’m dyslexic too, like my mom, but that doesn’t stop me from having a normal life and having fun!
  3. I love old video games–I could research about them for hours, though I don’t have an old console of my own (hint hint) 🙂
  4. I love cross country running–I get up and go to do school practice four days a week at 8:30 a.m.
  5. I’m Irish-Scottish-French-English-Canadian-and a bit of Russian (wow that’s a long list!)
