Community Partnership in Rideau Heights

On Wednesdays from April 25 through May 30, drop in to jump, skip, hop and more in our active program, Play to Learn. Through play-based activities and interactive books, children two years and up will develop their physical confidence.

Following Play to Learn, participate in Loving Spoonful's free Cooking With Families program (11 a.m. - 1 p.m.).  Parents and kids will learn how to make easy, healthy, affordable recipes together. Take home meals or ingredients after each workshop! To register for the Cooking with Families program, contact Thea at 613-507-8848. Cooking with Families will not run on May 23 and 30.

Code of Conduct Public Workshop

Patron Code of Conduct Public Workshop

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.
