Books and Beers returns to the third floor of The Grad Club on March 27. This month our theme is "The Ideas of March." That means we will be talking about innovation in literature. What works of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction truly broke new ground?
Programs, Events, Services and Recommendations
We need your help. We're looking at how we communicate with our patrons and with everyone in Kingston and Frontenac. To help us do that, we’ve put together this short, easy survey to find out what you think about how the Library communicates with you and how we can get better. The survey should take you 5 to 8 minutes to complete, and everything is confidential. If you choose, you can share contact information and enter our draw for one of two $50 gift cards to Novel Idea Bookstore. Winners will be notified on April 30, 2019.
Beginning on Monday, March 11, KFPL will feature an exciting array of programs for children of all ages. Interact with kind heroes, learn how to be kind to our animal friends, celebrate friendship, embrace our community, enjoy a puppet show, and more!
Are you an emerging or practising poet (ages 14 and up) who is interested in an hour's mentorship with Kingston Poet Laureate Jason Heroux? To apply for one of six mentorship sessions, please submit a sample of your poetry (5 to 12 pages) to email@example.com by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 11. Please include your full name and contact information. (Those without an email account may submit a printout or typescript of their poetry at any branch of KFPL, to the attention of Poet Laureate Jason Heroux, c/o Isabel Turner Branch.)
These are the available timeslots for the six sessions:
- Tuesday, April 9 (at Central Branch) at 10 or 11 a.m.
- Friday, April 12 (at Calvin Park) at 2 or 3 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 23 (at Isabel Turner) at 10 or 11 a.m.
When submitting your poetry, please list which of the six sessions you'd be able to attend, ranked in order of your preference. Jason will review all the submissions and will schedule one-on-one meetings with six poets.
