Building a Mystery with Live History

Something mysterious this way comes...

Join Live History on November 7 to build a mystery to stump friends and family, or learn how to become a sleuth during your favourite mystery programs!

Participants who are fans of mystery novels, shows and theatre will learn how to build a mystery while learning about their local history in a way they have never seen it before.

Mysteries include lessons in math, patterns, language and visual arts. This mystery-building workshop is hands-on, interactive, and wildly fun!

For ages 8 and up with an adult caregiver. Adult caregivers must attend with children who are ages 8 to 13. Teens may attend without a caregiver.

Date: Saturday, November 7

Times: 1:30-2:30 PM and 3:00-4:00 PM

Register to receive a Zoom meeting invitation to one of these sessions!

Climate Emergency Workshop 1: Share Your Voice (Live Online Event)

COVID-19 has grabbed the headlines, but wildfires and floods around the world show that the climate crisis hasn’t gone anywhere. Come share how it’s affected your life and community in this first of two online workshops with Jeremy Milloy of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Office of the Sisters of Providence, at 6:30 PM on Monday, October 26.

This digital program is free to all adults but requires registration. A Zoom link will be shared with registrants the day before the workshop. A follow-up workshop on how to take action follows on Thursday, November 12; please register separately for each workshop.

Get connected!

To help bridge a gap in internet access, we're now lending wireless internet hotspots (search for "hotspot" in the catalogue). Several hotspots will be tied to our branches in rural communities, with additional hotspots available through Kingston locations.

This collection will soon include 10 Chromebooks for loan to those who don’t have a device of their own. 

This project has been supported by the Cameron & Laurie Thompson Fund with the Community Foundation of Kingston and Area.
