Learn how to build a believable future for your science-fiction story’s setting! This writing workshop with local author Jerri Jerreat will focus on creating a convincing future in solarpunk, a type of eco-fiction set in a future where we’ve somehow managed to deal with today's global environmental crisis. Bring something to take notes and join us for this interactive online event, Saturday, October 23 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Programs, Events, Services and Recommendations
October is Canadian Library Month. We're celebrating the valuable role libraries play in Canadians’ lives! Ontario Public Library Week also falls within this month, October 17 to 23, with a theme of “One Card, One Million Possibilities.”
KFPL is making it easier than ever to get your card, explore the possibilities, and make the library a valuable part of your own life. Just enter your name, year of birth, phone, email, and address on our online registration page. We will email you your card number so you can get started with our digital collections right away. Come into any branch within 30 days with your ID and proof of address to make your card permanent.
Want to join a book club but don’t want to follow a strict reading schedule? Consider our monthly Book Chat, a casual online book-discussion mixer for adults and new adults who like to read.
This month's theme is Books and Libraries. Bring a book or some open-ended questions that suit the topic and join us on Zoom, Wednesday, October 20 at 6 p.m.
Even adults enjoy a good storytime, especially with a live reader instead of an audiobook! Grownup Storytime Online is back, now at a new time. Join us from 1-2 p.m. every Monday, October 18 through November 22. You’ll receive an email later the same day with links to the KFPL catalogue so you can reserve the day’s readings and other related titles!
Join other crafters from the comfort of home, with materials provided by KFPL! Try a new craft each month with these new take-home kits, starting with October's 3D Cricut poppy. Crafters of all abilities will learn how to crush this craft with Zoom instruction, October 20 from 6:30-8 p.m.
