Teens are invited to join us for a monthly drop-in manga, comics and writers' workshop. Read the latest manga in KFPL's collection, work on mini-projects that will help you hone your writing and drawing skills, or bring your own projects and materials, and work creatively in an encouraging, open studio environment. This month, we'll be at our Isabel Turner branch on November 23, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Research has shown that the most important thing parents can do to help their children acquire language, prepare for school, and develop a love of learning is to read to them. So check out one of MacKay's beautiful paper-cut stories today!
We have an opportunity to build a library branch in the new community centre planned for the city’s east end. If approved, this branch would replace the current Pittsburgh Branch located at 80 Gore Road. We are seeking community feedback on the proposed project. To learn more, join library staff at an Open House at the Pittsburgh Branch on November 15 between 2 and 4 p.m. and 5:30 and 7 p.m. An information sheet providing background on the project is available at all library branches and can be downloaded here. Feedback can be submitted online, and paper surveys are avaiable at every branch.
