At Books & Beers this month we will be talking about the strong emotions (both good and bad) that books can make us feel. What books do you love? Which have you hated? And are there any you love to hate?
This spring, the Kingston Frontenac Public Library is consulting with members of the Kingston and Frontenac County community to revise our Patron Code of Conduct. We hope that you'll be able to join us on Saturday, May 5 for a public workshop to explore what a revised Patron Code of Conduct could look like. This workshop is an opportunity for you to share your perspectives and to work alongside other community members to help the KFPL become a safer and more welcoming place for everyone.
