Members of all communities are welcome to attend this meeting to discuss the formation of an Indigenous Advisory Council at KFPL. The IAC will guide the library in developing Indigenous collections, programming, resources and spaces. This is a unique opportunity for attendees to help shape this exciting initiative. Takes place at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, February 27, at Calvin Park branch.
Unfortunately this community event has been cancelled. The poetry installation was vandalized and has been removed. Please visit our Poetry Blackboard to enjoy Sunrise on Ice by local poet Olivia Ows, a grade eleven student from Regiopolis-Notre Dame High School. The Poetry Blackboard is a joint project of KFPL and Kingston's Poet Laureate.
