Lights, action, camera! Do you see yourself as the next Deepa Mehta, Ava Duvernay, or Spike Lee? We encourage all Kingston and Frontenac Youth filmmakers to submit your best work to the THIRD annual KFPL Youth Shorts showcase during this year's Juvenis Festival on May 6.
Programs, Events, Services and Recommendations
Meet, engage and learn from Kingstonians of diverse faiths at this Human Library event. Members of the public will be able to speak one-on-one with human “books” to build bonds and understanding in our community. Join KFPL and the Kingston Interfaith Community on April 7th for this unique opportunity!
KFPL and Blue Canoe's coffehouse-style storytelling and performance showcase for youth, Viva Voce returns to our newly opened Central branch on March 28! At this special edition of the event you will be treated stories and songs related to the theme "Wonders" and a preview of workshops and events at the upcoming Juvenis Festival.
We welcome you to rediscover the Central Branch. We will be open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with grand re-opening celebrations from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. The grand re-opening event will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony, recognition of special donors, hourly storytimes, guided tours, a local history drop-in, special edition library cards and more. Free transit will be available all day, on all routes to help residents from across the city join in the celebrations thanks to Kingston Transit.
Books and Beers returns to the third floor of The Grad Club on March 27. This month our theme is "The Ideas of March." That means we will be talking about innovation in literature. What works of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction truly broke new ground?
