Learn more about the Extended Hours Project, which will provide Kingston East residents with more opportunities to use their public library branch.

Tell us your thoughts on branch hours and facilities

We want to hear from you! We are seeking community feedback on the Draft Library Facilities Plan and its recommendations. Community members are invited to a series of Open House events to share their thoughts. 

We have also completed a Branch Hours Review, and community members will be able to share comments on the proposed changes for nine Frontenac County branches at the Open House events. Feedback received for both projects will be reviewed and considered for implementation in fall 2022.

This week's Open Houses:

Monday, August 8

  • 6 to 7 p.m. – Hartington

Thursday, August 11

  • 6 to 8 p.m. – Sharbot Lake

What is an Art Hive? An Art Hive is a community art studio that welcomes everyone as an artist...at its heart, an Art Hive is about inclusion, respect and learning. It's a welcoming place to talk, make art and build communities.
