KFPL welcomes The Kick and Push Festival into our Central Branch with their comedy musical Stupidhead! from July 18-21. Performer/playwright Katherine Cullen's performance shares true stories about her dyslexia, the way she interacts with the world, and the way the world interacts with her. This event requires tickets which may be purchased online or at the Grand Theatre box office.
The Kick & Push Festival is an innovative performance festival in Kingston's downtown, featuring award-winning Canadian performers and original, internationally award-winning work. This year's festival offers seven productions that take audiences into the library, onto a bus, over the water to Cedar Island, and more. Learn more about The Kick and Push Festival.
KFPL is looking for teen volunteers to assist with our popular Reading Buddies program. Volunteers will assist a KFPL programmer in the facilitation of literacy instruction and fun activities for children in Grades 1 to 3. We need volunteers for our July 9 - July 12 session at Isabel Turner (1:30 - 3 p.m. each day) and our August 6 - 9 session at Central (1:30 - 3 p.m. each day). Participants will earn volunteer hours by attending a short training session, reading to and with younger children, and helping to organize this rewarding program.
