TD Summer Reading Club

School Is Out, Summer Reading Is In

Starting Saturday, June 19, kids 0-12 years can register for the TDSRC! 

All kids participating in the club will receive:  a special bilingual notebook to track their progress; a web access code for the virtual club on the TDSRC website; stickers; and the chance to win prizes. Kids can participate in the TDSRC anytime, anywhere — at the KFPL, at home, online, on the road — wherever their summer takes them.  

Why join the TD Summer Reading Club?  For school-aged children, summer can mean regression in their reading skills. Active participation in the TDSRC helps reduce this “summer slide” by providing access to books and literacy-based programming while making reading fun.

King Con Workshops

Register Now for King Con 2021 Workshops!

Every year King Con offers a number of fun and instructive workshops, and this year is no different. Do you want to know how to design and develop an original character for comics, video gaming, toy production, or animation? Do you want to learn how to face paint? What about how to pitch and publish a comic book? How to begin writing Solarpunk fiction? Or how to build and decorate a cardboard mask? We got you! But a few of these workshops have limited seating and require you to pick up a free kit before the King Con weekend, so we encourage you to review our King Con programming and register for these workshops now!

King Con: Queer Witches and Magical Enbies: Adan Jerreat-Poole in Conversation with The Witch Institute's Tamara de Szegheo Lang

Queer Witches and Magical Enbies

On June 25 join us for a special conversation between local YA fantasy author and academic, Adan Jerreat-Poole (The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass & The Boi of Feather and Steel) and Queen’s Department of Film and Media’s Tamara de Szegheo Lang about the witch’s role as a queer, feminist, and activist icon. This King Con 2021 event will also figure as a "teaser" for August’s “Witch Institute” at Queen's, an international online symposium focus on contemporary imaginings of the witch in popular and visual culture.
