Museum Passes

We've improved our museum passes to make them easier to use. This year, a single pass will admit a group of 2 adults and 3 children to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the Pump House Steam Museum and the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum. Visit your favourite or all three! Passes may be borrowed for 1 week and may be reserved in the library catalogue.

Library News

Postcards from the Front

In early September, a very special postcard will be sent to each of about 350 Kingston-Frontenac households. Each card will contain the name of a soldier or nursing sister whose family once lived in that house.

Who were those former residents? And what happened to them? The postcard will invite the current resident to find out.

Book Clubs With a Difference

Join us for Books & Beers or Books & Beans, the Book Clubs With a Difference. Grab a beverage and sit down for a relaxed chat about books with friends, neighbours and library staff.
