Our Sydenham Branch now has a Saturday morning Tech Tutor offering one-on-one appointments. They can help you set up your new phone, learn how an app works, download photos from email, connect to digital library services - whatever your tech challenge, they will help you figure it out! Call the branch for more information or to book an appointment.
Programs, Events, Services and Recommendations
On Friday, August 23, join us at the Central or Sydenham branches for a special event for children who have completed their TD Summer Reading Club notebook and/or reached their summer reading goals!
Register to enjoy refreshments/treats, obtain your certificate of completion, pick up a free book (courtesy of The Friends of the Library), and enjoy an exclusive magical performance by WonderPhil.
Local band Panaché will offer a bilingual mixture of traditional children’s songs with some original material. Bring a blanket, hat and sunscreen and join us outside at the Pittsburgh branch!
Do you dream of writing tantalizing tales of your travel adventures? There’s more to travel writing than just describing where you’ve been and what you’ve seen. Travel writer Linda Kenyon will show you how to craft a tightly constructed piece that will bring to life the places you’ve been and explore their significance. Come prepared to do some writing — bring pen and paper, your laptop, whatever works for you — and to share your work. Free to all adults and new adults, but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please register in advance online or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Tuesday, August 13, Isabel Turner Branch, 2 p.m.
There is still time to register for the TD Summer Reading Club!
Did you know? The TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests, and all abilities.
Kids can participate in the club anytime, anywhere – at home, online, on the road or wherever their summer takes them.
Pick up your free materials at your local KFPL branch, and visit the TD Summer Reading Club website to explore recommended reads; join in activities; write jokes, stories and book reviews, and more!
