The New Adult Advisory Board's Books and Beers mixer returns to The Grad Club on May 29. In the spirit of the month our discussion theme will be "Mothers and Motherhood." What are the great mothers and mother-child relationships in literature? How did your mother or guardian inform your reading habits? We will discuss all of this and more.

Wondering how to build a business with Shopify? Or do you have an idea for a product to sell online but don't know how to start? Carissa Cosgrove will give an overview of Shopify’s e-commerce platform and explain how to use it to start, grow and manage your business. Free to all adults but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance online at events.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Thursday, May 30, at Sydenham branch, at 7 p.m.
We have upgraded our event calendar and program registration system. You can now manage your events using the calendar tab at the top of our web page. The new system allows you to choose between a calendar or a list of events, and you can easily narrow your search by library branch, age group and event type. You can also create customized brochures of the events that interest you most. Please note that the new system requires everyone registering for a library program to have a library card and PIN. Families are welcome to use an adult card to register their children, and for those who would like to bring a friend or family member you will be able to add them as your guest when you register. If you are unsure of your PIN or need assistance using the new event calendar, KFPL staff at any branch will be happy to help.
