We need your help. We're looking at how we communicate with our patrons and everyone in Kingston and Frontenac. To help us do that, we’ve put together this short and easy survey to find out what you think about how the Library communicates with you and how we can get better. The survey should take you 5 to 8 minutes to complete and everything is confidential. If you choose, you can share contact information and enter our draw for one of two $50 gift cards to Novel Idea Bookstore. Winners will be notified on April 30, 2019.
Programs, Events, Services and Recommendations
Kingston Transit will offer free transit all day, on all routes, on Saturday, March 23, so that residents from across the city can attend our Grand Re-Opening Celebrations. Our Central Branch is only a block away from Kingston Transit's downtown transfer point at Brock and Bagot Street, the hub for all Express Routes and many connecting routes. The library will open at 11 a.m. and close at 5 p.m., but transit will be free all day so you can continue to explore downtown and across the city. Thank you to Kingston Transit for joining in our celebration.
Have you ever wondered what's on your family's old home movies? What if we said you could "hack" those old tapes and reel-to-reels to make new works of art? Kingston and Frontenac teens are invited to join us for a special three-session workshop in digitizing and art-making with old home movies! Limited spaces! Register now!
